Dear Replicator, We don’t really have a homebrew club where I live, but there are about six to eight of us who get together once a month to taste our homebrews.

Dear Replicator, I used to live in Vancouver, Washington but I took a job transfer to Southern California. This was a mistake as I moved from a beer-laden area to something much less. The only good news is that I started homebrewing after I moved down here. I like dark, malty beers. Just before I

Dear Replicator, A couple of years ago my dad decided to take my brother and I on what he called an “extreme guys fishing get away.” I wasn’t too excited about the fishing or the location — Kodiak, Alaska. Turns out that even though it is very remote, it was pretty cool. The best part

Dear Replicator, I’m hoping to convince my husband to brew something other than the super bitter beers he likes. I normally just drink big red wines.

Dear Replicator, I was showing some friends photos of last year’s vacation when we traveled up I-5 hitting breweries and brewpubs along the route. Immediately when I saw the picture of 7 Seas Brewing in Gig Harbor, Washington I remembered what I thought was the best beer of the trip — their Wheelchair Barleywine. After


Rockford Brewing Co.’s Rockford Country Ale: Replicator

Dear Replicator, I have to say that my experience with farmhouse style beers had not been good. I’m more of a pale ale, IPA guy. That all changed when my brewing buddy brought back a growler of Rockford Country Ale from Rockford Brewing Company in Rockford, Michigan. He raved about it and I found out

Dear Replicator, On a recent road trip from Kansas City to southeastern Missouri I made a stop at Springfield Brewing Company. I had a couple of their beers, one being the Aviator Doppelbock.
