Terrapin and Shmaltz Reunion Ale 2012 Released
Terrapin Beer Co., Shmaltz Brewing, and Alan Shapiro (founder of SBS Imports) have once again joined forces in one of the most unique and worthwhile collaborations in craft beer.
One beer style, two great breweries, and one great cause... The Reunion: A Beer for Hope fundraising campaign. Each brewer starts with the same basic beer style and list of adjuncts, and then all bets are off! The result is two beers that are the same and yet totally different! The whole effort is to raise funds to support the Institute for Myeloma & Bone Cancer Research in the name of Virginia MacLean, who succumbed to the disease in 2007.

Chico, CA—August 14, 2014—Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. and Boulevard Brewing Company today announced that round three of their ever-evolving collaboration Terra Incognita will hit retail shelves late this month. First created in 2012 for SAVOR, a Brewers Association beer and food event, Terra Incognita proved too fun and flavorful a project to be a one-off. The beer, always a unique blend of fresh and aged ale, does not include the late addition of the wild yeast Brettanomyces this year.

Was there a pattern there?
A destination for beer aficionados, this street-level beer-bar, with outside patio, is not too easy to find. Nevertheless, it is worth the effort. Novare Res Bier Café can be found at 4 Canal Plaza, Portland, ME, on a hot summer afternoon it affords both a cool cellar-like area and a good-sized outdoor patio.
The cellar-like bar is large enough to seat the patio crowd should the weather not cooperate. The beer taps (all 25 of them) are impressive but the beer-menu is even more impressive. Belly-up to the bar and you can see the immense cold box where the bottle collection is kept, at just the right temperature.
This time, we were on our way from one place to another, there was time for only one (or two) draught brews and a bit of a rest before later indulgences.
However, we did return later in the evening for…
