Rhinegeist Streaker Rye IPA

Rhinegeist Streaker IPA is an interesting beer, and the result of a unique “crowd sourced” brewing process. The Cincinnati based brewery let fans decide the hops, malts and name of the beer. The result is an IPA with 17% rye malt and tropical fruit hop flavors. It was dry hopped with Citra and Mosaic hops that blend nicely with the spiciness of the rye.

Rhinegeist only distributes to Ohio, Kentucky and Massachusetts but I’ve been able to get my hands on a few of their great beers through Tavour. You haven’t checked out Tavour you should get on it. They carefully select beers from all over the country (and sometimes internationally), you pick the ones that you want,  and they deliver them to you at really reasonable prices. They really know craft beer, and their customer service is fantastic.

Tasty IPA

21st Amendment teamed up with Mike “Tasty” McDole of the Brewing Network for Tasty IPA. You can hear McDole discuss brewing the beer on this episode of the Brewing Network’s The Session podcast. The beer is a take on McDole’s homebrew IPA. It’s a pale, clear IPA that uses citra, mosaic, and ekuanot lupulin powder. The malts consist of two-row pale, munich, and pilsner. This makes for a floral, dry beer, with a big hoppy aroma. For me, really floral IPAs run the risk of becoming too perfumey. Tasty IPA rides that line without going over it. To the last sip it maintains a crisp floral hop flavor without getting perfumey. The beer is being distributed to twenty-five states.

As good as the beer is, the can art might be the star here. It’s a cartoon depiction of McDole’s intepretation of the famous American Beauty movie poster, drawn by Tasty’s son Mark. Tasty’s curvy form is clad only in green hops and his usual hat.

“If you like hops, and you love IPA, you’ll definitely enjoy this beer… even in spite of the naked guy swimming in hops on the front of the can. In all seriousness, this beer is delicious. The lupulin powder is made from the “heart of the hop,” where the hop resins and oils reside, giving this beer bright, fresh flavors and aromas of tropical stone fruits and pine, with a hint of spiciness.” – Shaun O’Sullivan, co-founder, and Brewmaster

Breweries of Instagram

Which breweries are winning Instagram? Craft beer is a great fit for Instagram. Breweries can show off their brewery and latest brews, and keep fans updated on what they’re up to. Only the larger breweries tend to have much of a marketing budget, but others can compensate by taking some time to engage with their followers.

Here are the top 18 craft breweries ranked by number of followers (let us know if we missed anyone!):

Brewery Followers
stonebrewingco 311000
newglarusbrewing 305000
dogfishhead 285000
sierranevada 261000
foundersbrewing 243000
newbelgium 220000
firestonewalker 169000
bellsbrewery 153000
rogueales 134000
brooklynbrewery 133000
deschutesbeer 132000
lefthandbrewing 117000
cigarcitybrewing 117000
greenflashbeer 115000
mikkellerbeer 112000
oskarblues 109000
moderntimesbeer 104000
allagashbrewing 102000

No big surprises on this list. Most of these breweries are also in the top 50 craft breweries by volume. Exceptions include Firestone Walker, Cigar City, Mikeller, and Modern Times. Firestone Walker and Modern Times are growing very quickly, so it makes sense that they have a large presence on Instagram.

It’s not all about the follower count though. Some relatively small breweries have outsized buzz among beer geeks. Others are just really good at social media and make engaging with their fans a priority. Making excellent beer also helps. We did a super scientific poll on Instagram with a post asking people to “tag a brewery whose Instagram game is on point.”

Here are the craft breweries that got at least two mentions:

Brewery Mentions
jwakefieldbeer 21
foundersbrewing 4
troegsbeer 3
wynwoodbrewing 2
theveilbrewing 2
angrychairbrewing 2

I think we have a clear people’s choice winner with J. Wakefield Brewing.

Personally I’ve noticed them and Troegs being very active engaging with people on Instagram, and both have excellent content.

Stainless Steel Beer Bottle Koozie

Click on the bio link for the BeerSelfie.com @smartideas4life Stainless Steel Beer Bottle Koozie review!

A post shared by Beer Selfie (@beerselfie) on

I recently got this Stainless Steel Beer Bottle Koozie from Smart Ideas for Life. I’ve used it once, on the beach, and it worked great. I wanted to really test it out by bringing it on a hike. I wondered how it hold up bouncing along on rough trails. I was honestly a bit skeptical of the “beer savers” silicone cap preventing leaks.

I loaded the koozie up and off I went down the trail.

After hiking for a bit I used the bottle opener attached to the koozie’s cap to open my beer. There was a resounding hiss from the bottle when opened, but no spillage.

After a few sips, on goes the silicone cap, and back to the trail I went.

After some more hiking, including a bit of a stumble that I was sure would knock the koozie’s silicone cap lose, I checked on the state of my beer. The cap was firmly in place, and no beer had leaked!

I finished my hike, and my beer, without spilling a drop before heading home. The beer bottle koozie turned out to be perfect for a hike!
