Sneak Peak at 2013

Happy New Year everyone!

First off, I would like to thank everyone who continues to find their way onto my blog.  I always enjoy reading and responding to everyone's comments, whether they are here in the comments section, or on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+!

I'm excited for the things I have planned for Mould's Beer Blog in 2013!  Here's a preview of some items I'd like to accomplish, in no particular order:

  • More brewery visits / Discussions with brewers:  There are a few local breweries I definitely want to get to, among them Sly Fox in Pottstown, PA, Rushing Duck in Chester, NY, High Point in Butler, NJ, Cape May Brewing in Rio Grande, NJ, and Flounder Brewing in Hillsborough, NJ when they open!
  • Homebrewing:  In the coming weeks I am going to be doing 2 Brew-in-a-Bag all-grain batches.  I have performed extract brewing in the past, but this will be my first time trying all-grain, and I can't wait.  Keep an eye out for how these turn out!
  • Posts on why glassware is important when drinking beer
  • Beer reviews on styles I am not familiar with (Gose, Sahti, Sours)
  • Explore meads
Once again, thanks everyone for reading, and Happy New Year!


  1. Cheers and Happy New Year from a fellow craft beer enthusiast! I really enjoyed Sly Fox's brewpub but I went to the Phoenixville location, not the one in Pottsville. High Point makes arguably the best Oktoberfest in the U.S. and are certainly worth the visit but I'd look into Cape May Brewing before making any ventures down there in light of the damage Cape May sustained last October.

    I love mead and Sahti and would recommend the Long Island Meadery (if you can make your way out there) and Dogfish Head's Sah'Tea as two places to start.

    Here's to a great year in beer in 2013!

    1. Cheers and thanks for the suggestions! I've had almost all of Sly Fox's canned offering, and have been impressed. I can't wait to see their brewpub lineup when I go. Cape May Brewing seems to be doing quite well post-Sandy, but I would definitely make sure they're open before going.

      I've never heard of Long Island Meadery, but will definitely check them out.

      Cheers again and happy new year!
