Mash Sparge Boil: Making A Bacon Infused Beer
I love bacon, I love beer. This sounds like a win/win and Neil has a few ideas on how to make it happen. Anyone up for some experimenting?

Daily Beer Review: 120 Minute IPA
Over at Daily Beer Review, Beer Drinker Rob was lucky enough to find a bottle of Dogfish Head’s 120 Minute IPA. I’m very, very jealous. Hopefully, the crew over at Dogfish Head can get some more batches of this beer out to the public very soon.

Billy Brew: These Places Need a Better Beer Selection, Right Now…
I’m sure that I’m not the only one who gets frustrated when I go to a good restaurant or ball game and all they have is mass produced, water downed lager. Luckily, more and more places are waking up and serving craft beer.

And on a editorial note, we’re going to try out a three day a week publishing schedule. You’ll now be able to find home brewing articles and craft beer reviews, on Monday, Wednesday and Friday here.

About the author /


I'm a former coffee blogger, but I’ve been getting to know some really good craft beers and really getting into home brewing. I couldn’t resist starting this little project called Passion For The Pint. When I’m not blogging about coffee or beer, you can find me exploring New Orleans’ wide range of eateries, rooting for the New York Yankees (don’t hate me, I’m originally from New York), working out to burn off the beer calories or reading about beer.

    Hey Mike. Thanks for the mention. As you read, I wouldn’t have scored that 120 bottle without a little help from my friends. Can’t wait to read on the new 3x/week schedule.

      Those are good friends to have!

      Yeah, hopefully that 3x a week schedule allows me to put out three high quality posts. My day job is just consuming all of my time lately. I’d much rather write about beer.
