No Reservations is Missing the Bus

I am a huge fan of the Travel Channel show, No Reservations hosted by Tony Bourdain. It is outstanding! I have become such an addict that I watch the new episodes on TV and the reruns on Netflix. I love how Tony goes to foreign countries and just immerses himself in the cultures. He eats everything the locals eat. He truly respects the individuality of each culture. He has been to Germany, Tahiti, Argentina, Iceland, and multiple cities and towns in the United States. But what he has not done is visit American craft beer. No, it is not a place. But there are places that represent this to the tee.

Tasting Your Homebrew

It was a lazy Friday night and all I wanted to do was watch some TV and drink some good beers before I went to bed. I’d had a crazy week at work and this sounded perfect. I grabbed a bottle of my Rye Can’t We Be Friends out of the fridge and cracked it open. It had a nice carbonated sound to it, considering it was just barely two weeks since I bottled it. I poured it out into a glass and watched the colors change. I love that reddish-copper color. Since it’s still young, I didn’t get much of a head on the top. I took a whiff and appreciated the dry-hopping I did with the Centennials. It wasn’t an overpowering hop aroma, but it was enough to get you curious. The taste was delicious. I got a shot of citrus hops at the front and a blend of spicy and bready rye flavors at the end. I shared a taste with my friend and he agreed. Tasty! I noted to him that the beer was just short of 3% alcohol. Now that’s a friendly, tasty beer.

Brew Masters – Chicha, Punkin & Portamarillo

MIGUEL: Ahh, man! The Chicha show is about Sam’s quest to make an authentic Chicha, which is a thousand-year old recipe that hails from Peru. I forgot to mention that authentic meant germinating the corn with the saliva of his employees. Yes. Saliva. Okay, I’m passed it. So the corn is added to a small amount of malt and spices to make a delicious corn-based beer for the folks at the Dogfish Head Brewing and Eats in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. As scary as this beer sounded, it made me want to go to the Rehoboth Beach brewpub even more. So I’d like to take this opportunity to announce that I am going to spend my 30th birthday next year visiting the Dogfish Head brewery and Brewing and Eats. I’m excited. Everyone’s invited. Sam, if your reading this, get ready for California Castaway.
