Chuck and Dave’s Faves: My Favorite Season

“It hardly seems fair, but summer is coming to an end…soon. Whether you love it or hate it, chilly fall weather is fast approaching. It just so happens that I love the fall! In fact, I’d even go so far as to say it’s my favorite season. There’s more to fall than just pumpkin spice […]

Chuck and Dave’s Faves: Summer Fruit Salad Sour Ale

“My favorite season for beer is finally upon us! This summer, Sandi introduced the Summer Fruit Salad Sour Ale and it quickly became my favorite. This American Sour Ale has a lot going on, while remaining a balanced and relatively mild sour. The main flavors come from the pineapple, passion fruit and peach that it […]

Chuck and Dave’s Faves: Turkey, Bacon, & Tomato Sandwich

“Craft beer is awesome. Therefore, it deserves awesome and delicious food to be paired with it! My go-to sandwich to pair with a beer this summer is the Turkey, Bacon, & Tomato. Chef Jen, from Prairie Berry Winery’s Kitchen, crafted this scrumptious summer sandwich using roasted turkey, pepper bacon, and tomatoes, along with basil aioli and […]

Chuck and Dave’s Faves: Blue Razz Milkshake IPA

“My favorite beer releases always seem to take place in the summer. I guess I prefer the combination of warm weather with lighter bodied, citrusy or even fruity beers. Every year, my favorite beer release is Sandi’s Blue IPA. It’s a blueberry IPA that was originally a sour IPA! There have been a couple variations […]

Chuck and Dave’s Faves: Go Take A Hike

“Hiking is great. But hiking with a beer… that’s even better. Whether the beer is for “hydration” along the way, or saved as a reward for the end of a hike, it always seems to taste a bit better while enjoying the beautiful outdoors. My favorite beer to bring along on a hike and enjoy […]

Chuck and Dave’s Faves: A Beer Well Earned

“I say it all the time but for me, the best beer is one earned! For some it’s a long hike in the woods or a bike ride. For others it’s taking a final exam or finishing a project you’ve been working on for a long time. Whatever it is, the first beer after, just […]

Chuck and Dave’s Faves: Half of Ten

“My continuous favorite, since its release, has been the Half of Ten (sour ale). The borderline insane commitment of time to create this beer, as well as the complexity and creativity all continue to impress my taste buds and boggle my mind. Half of Ten began its life as a Belgian Golden Ale as the […]

Chuck and Dave’s Faves: West River Pale Ale

“I’m currently really digging the West River Pale Ale. This Miner Brewing staple is an oldie, but a goodie. It’s a West Coast inspired Pale Ale that is hop forward with a hint of citrus. It has the feel of an IPA but is a bit more sessionable. We even had a little fun with the old […]
