Happy Halloween from Insight by the Pint!

I’m coming to you a little later than usual (one day to be exact). I’m not going to lie. I was busy carving pumpkins, hand crafting a ghost that comes down from the power line, and listen to the Halloween station on Pandora…tis the season, right? I hope that you all had an enjoyable Halloween … Continue reading

Pensive with a Pumpkin Ale

Harold Kushner said, “I like to think of life as a good book. The further you get into it, the more it makes sense.” Sometimes I wish I could skip a few chapters in life, or read some later chapters. I think we can all agree that sometimes we feel unsettled for one reason or … Continue reading

Life with a side of Jai Alai IPA

Shout Out to the Milk Stout

It’s 5:45 pm, I left the house early…but not too early. I am dressed for success but not overly so, if you haven’t guessed it yet I am going to a job interview.

Not the Exception to my Raspberry Rule

The question on my mind as I am browsing the surprisingly extensive beer selection from our little vacation town is: should I give raspberry another shot? Let me explain, raspberry and I have a long history…a long unhappy history. Any raspberry beer I try, I truly do not like. I know what you are thinking, … Continue reading

Found: IPA with a Wheater Side

(Not so) Badass American Lager

     If you read last week’s blog you will be happy to know that I have arrived in Michigan alive…although a little unstable…three days in a car with family will do that to you.
