My Trip to Atlantic City (to watch Union win the 2012 ECAC Championship!)

If you know me you know I'm a huge fan of Union College hockey. My dad and I are season ticket holders and have been to just about every home game over the last few years. The finished the regular season in first place and beat RPI in the quarterfinals of the playoffs to advance to the semifinals in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Being the hardcore Union fan I am I signed up for the bus trip to check out the games on Friday the 16th and Saturday the 17th. This is a brief overview of my trip down there and back.

NOS (2012 re-review) | Chad'z Energy Drink Reviews #38

My first ever re-review of an energy drink AND my first ever Skype collab review of a non-beer beverage. Simon of joins me from Wales to try his first ever review of an energy drink. He can't get NOS (my favorite energy drink) in Wales, so I sent him a can in a package of beers I sent to him shortly after New Years. You know I love NOS, but how would Simon react to it?

"Citra Survival" by RCubed Brewing | Chad'z Homebrew Reviews #24

"RCubed Brewing" is the name Ryan aka uses for his homebrews. This is a "mostly" Citra hop strong American pale ale. Probably inspired by Three Floyds Zombie Dust as well as a lot of West Coast IPAs. Not to give away my review, but I think this is one of, if not THE best homebrew I've ever had. Thanks, Ryan!

Ryan's description:
6% ABV, all Citra hops in the boil, dry-hopped with more Citra and a touch of Cascade and Motueka. All grain. Belgian pale malt for the base with equal rye malt, wheat malt, Caramunich and a touch of Crystal 15.

A Day in the Life of Chad #7 (March 2, 2012)

It's time for the semi-annual episode of "A Day in the Life of Chad" - the winter edition. This day was once again rather atypical and yet very routine at the same time. You'll get to see me go to the gym, work, and shoot a beer review. Fun times, huh?
