There are No Strong Beers Only Weak Men | Tapped Life's Intro to Strong Beers

An Introduction to 3 Strong Craft Beers

Trends regularly work their way through the craft beer industry—anyone who has paid attention for long enough can easily see this with their own two eyes. In recent years, low-alcohol “session” beers have made waves, carried by the fact that most people can drink multiple cans or bottles without getting to drunk for their own good. On the exact opposite end of the spectrum, you’ll find strong beers so high in alcohol that you can taste the heat with every sip. Barleywines, Old Ales and Imperial beers all fit the bill, but there are some offerings that go far and beyond the typical alcohol wall of 11-13% ABV.

East Coast Tour de Brufest

Posted by Tapped Life on

Tapped Life | Beer, Bourbon & BBQ, Baltimore, MD

We started our East Coast adventure with a crazy dash across the country from the Boulder City Beer Fest in Nevada (just outside of Las Vegas) over the Vail Pass (it’s never easy – rock slides, snow storms, insane winds), we made a quick stop to reload on beer shirts at our Tapped Life home base in Denver and kept haulin’. We (and little dog, Ida) needed to be in Baltimore in two days to set up shop at the Beer, Bourbon and BBQ at the Timonium Fairgrounds. We stopped just outside St. Louis, grabbed some tasty ribs and mac & cheese at Pappy’s for a late dinner and crashed for the night. Another 14 hours to go. East coast tour de brufes
