Dear Replicator, My daughter was visiting Cedar Crest, New Mexico, and had the pleasure of drinking State Pen Porter from Santa Fe Brewing Company. She said it was the best porter she had ever had. It’s not available within 200 miles (320 km) of where I live and I really want to try it. I hope not to find myself in the


Brewing with Coconut

It pours a clear, dark cola brown with ruby red highlights (when held to the light) and a creamy tan head. Smells milky sweet with fudge, dark chocolate, roasted malts, and toasted coconut. Take a sip. In the flavor are dark brown sugars, coconut, iced coffee, and bitter dark chocolate. The body is light to

Dear Replicator, We live in Wyoming but were recently in Clear Lake, Iowa and stopped at Lake Time Brewery. All of their beers were good but their Park Bench Porter really stood out. I rarely use delicious to describe beer but the term really applies to this one. They are only open three days a week and brew on a

Dear Replicator, I have spent many days traveling for work to Elkhart, Indiana. One of the best parts of the trip is visiting Iechyd Da Brewing Company for one of their many great brews.

Dear Replicator, We recently took some family and friends to the Brasserie Saint James in Reno, Nevada. Along with some fantastic food, we enjoyed a great lineup of Belgian-style beers.

  Dear Replicator, My friends keep bothering me to make a clone of Eddyline Brewing’s River Runners Pale Ale, made in Colorado. My dear buddies always drink the six-packs they buy before they return home to Montana. Alas, my palate has not had the good fortune of sampling this beer and the trips to Colorado come few

India Pale Lager (IPL) is a modern hybridization of the India Pale Ale (IPA) style and a (insert your own interpretation of the) “lager component” that has taken a craft beer industry foothold in recent years.
