Welcome to my Blog

Either accidentally or knowingly you’ve stumbled on my blog Pat’s Pints.  The posts here are written for ordinary folks who enjoy good beer.  Some of the information may be practical if you want to learn more about beer, or make good choices when buying or drinking beers.  Some of it is likely to be of no use whatsoever, but if you are the kind of person who draws up brackets and seedings for a 16-beer single elimination IPA taste test, you might just enjoy what you read.

I live in Columbus, Ohio and so there will be some content that is specific to the beer scene in Central Ohio.  My love of good beer started when I was a graduate student at Oregon State University, so I have a soft spot for beers from the Pacific Northwest as well.

The posts are sorted into nine categories.  To access the posts click on one of the menu items below the picture at the top of this page. That will take you to another page with a list of all of the posts in that particularly category (i.e. Beer 101 – Learn More about Beer, Beer Reviews, Beer Flights, …).   Have a read and leave some comments.  If you actually like what you see consider signing up to follow the blog (use the follow link on the right hand side of this page).  If there is a topic you’d like me to address, or a beer you’d like me to review, just drop me a line or leave a request as a comment.  If you want to contact me send an e-mail to woodward.55@osu.edu.

Cheers

Pat

    Pat — Here’s a link to the OSU Hops Workshop I mentioned at North High Brewing on Thursday: http://delaware.osu.edu/news/central-ohio-hops-workshop
    We’ve still got a belated birthday Three Floyds for you.

      Brian thanks for reminding me about the hops workshop. If my schedule is open I’d love to take part.

      Maybe I could swing by this evening after work and pick up the Three Floyds, I’d hate to let the hops fade.

    An interesting side by side tasting..Gregorious and Founders Imperial Stout.
    More similarities than I would have thought.

  6. Ted says:

    we should coordinate a visit to Chumleys for Beer + Chemistry with Matt. He is in Texas now and has info to share (as do I). Maybe next weekend?

  7. Ted says:

    I have a rival beer event today…I am looking to share some Gregorius with my crowd. I am curious to see what they think.

  8. Ted says:

    We need to include Nugget Nectar in a tasting. I am liking it more and more. I will try to save a few bottles (but I am not optimistic)…

    • Pats Pints says:

      What about this afternoon? I’d like to do nugget nectar v hopslam v Chillwave. If you haven’t tried Chillwave yet I guarantee you’ll be impressed.

  9. Ted says:

    Also a popular choice….Barney Flats oatmeal stout.

    • Pats Pints says:

      I’ve seen Barney flats before, but not tried it. I’ve never heard of rail dog. Black lager is a pretty unusual style. Similar to a German schwartzbier.
      Rogue makes very good examples of both styles: Shakespeare stout and dirtoir
