Volume 4 of our ongoing series is upon us, and it comes with a bitter attitude and a powerful aroma. We are taking about IPAs today – specifically, how to describe the type of IPA flavor you are looking for. We now turn to Mike Fern for the setup question. Take it away, Mike.

And we are back to our longitudinal series “First-time home brewer questions!” In this edition, I give Mike the cold shoulder as I discuss the differences between Ale and Lager and what to keep in mind when brewing a lager at home! On to the good stuff…

Three Pint Stance - A whirlwind of a weekend

On most days, my job is pretty cool. If you haven’t read the italicized text at the end of the article in a while, I spend my working hours selling and marketing beer for the brewery I co-founded, Gneiss Brewing Company in Limerick, Maine.

So, back to my job being cool. Usually, I have mundane things to do, clients to visit, invoices to create, marketing materials to prepare, sales reports to analyze, yada yada yada. Sounds like a regular job, right? It pretty much is, but I get to do all of these things while surrounded by really tasty beer and people who LOVE really tasty beer. This is what makes my job pretty cool, and if you disagree, I look forward to reading your column about that.

Last weekend (beer industry weekend, so Thursday through Sunday), however, my job was EXTRA cool.

(If you are sick of the bragfest, I’ll see you back here for the continuation of my “Questions from the first-time home brewer” column. If you are waiting for a dentist appointment and your phone is dead and this is the best you have, STRAP IN!!!)

Three Pint Stance - Winter Session thoughts

So the 2018 Brew Fest season, unofficial as it may be, kicked off with a couple events around Maine last weekend, including the Maine Brewer’s Guild’s First Annual Winter Session at the Brick South building on Thompson’s Point in Portland.

(I’m not usually one to write a recap of events gone by, because I sometimes feel like that is only interesting to the people who went, and I want everyone to be interested in my column! However, this fest felt a little different, so I’m gonna talk about it and YOU ARE GOING TO LIKE IT!)

Three Pint Stance - New Beers Resolutions 2018

A new year is upon us, and similar to other lazy, phone-it-in columnists around the globe, I have opted to write about some arbitrary New Year’s resolutions that neither you nor I will follow. And there goes my resolution to be less cynical.

Trying this again…. HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

It’s a new year filled with endless possibilities, yet-to-be-discovered adventures and most importantly, NEW BEERS! Here is a list of beer-related resolutions for your 2018. Instead of setting unattainable goals and drowning in the inevitable impossibility of lofty personal ambitions, try these easy-to-follow New Beers Resolutions for a quick buzz and a shot of dry-hopped self-esteem!

Welcome back to the Three Pint Stance Guide to Holiday Beer Gifting! Last week, we went over what not to get your beer-loving friend/lover/co-worker/annoying person you have to get a gift for. This week, we get to focus on the things you SHOULD consider getting that person.

On to the list!

Welcome to the Three Pint Stance Guide to Holiday Beer Gifting! In this two-part series, I’ll be going over the dos and don’ts of holiday gift giving for the beer lover in your life. It can be difficult to navigate the waters of the craft beer hobby if you don’t know much about beer in the first place, but this guide should help you sail those waters successfully and arrive in the safe harbor of Perfect Gift…land.

Anyway, let’s begin with things you SHOULDN’T give the beer lover in your life. Some of these may seem like good ideas (and some of them I may have even mentioned in the past), but we learn as we get older, right?

Three Pint Stance – The importance of reruns

If you are a reader with a decent memory and a keen eye, you may have noticed that from time to time that the Three Pint Stance is much like today’s modern aluminum cans - easily and often recycled. So sue me, I am a busy person who stays busy by constantly making sure to tell people how busy he is. It can be exhausting, but somehow I manage.

Three Pint Stance - Beers to FALL in love with

Although it has been a month since the Autumnal Equinox, it feels as though we are just settling into fall here in Maine. With the cooler temps and the prettying of the trees, we also see a shift in selections when it comes to beer. Here are a few autumn offerings that I am digging this year.
