Collision Bend Brewery

My brother and I attended Wizard World Comic Con back in March and then stumbled on to an outstanding brewery in Cleveland – Collision Bend Brewery. Collision Bend is located at 1250 Old River Rd which is sort of an out of the way spot for a brewery but it’s well worth your time to check it out. They had a slew of beers to choose from and their flight prices were outstanding. They had a … Continue reading

7 Cocktails With Whiskey That Will Blow Your Mind

Whiskey

Parties are incomplete without cocktails. Any generic alcoholic drink having two or more than two ingredients earns itself the title of a cocktail. Does not matter if you are a professional bartender, or assume the role of one for your house party, you should absolutely be familiar with the nitty-gritty of some drinks. From sweet to dry, hot to icy, stirred to shaken, the number of cocktails available today is overwhelming. Selecting a few out … Continue reading

The Whiskey Wedge = Great Gift

Whiskey Wedge

Yesterday was Father’s Day. As they always do, my family treated me to an awesome day with some outstanding gifts (a new Cleveland shirt, Tribe hat, etc.) I was surfing Facebook this AM and ran across a friend who had received this product and I figured this was a great day to feature it on Beer Shots. The Whiskey Wedge helps you achieve a nice cold pour while avoiding watering down your favorite libation. I got … Continue reading

Red Solos at The Annex

Red Solos at The Annex

The last time I added a Beer Shots entry here on the blog I started out the post by saying, “It’s been forever and a day since I’ve added a new Beer Shots entry.” That was 14 months ago. Needless to say I’ve not been keeping up my promise to myself to be a better blogger. That said, back again tonight with a pic that… well… just feels right. The last pic was from The Annex and … Continue reading

Genesee and Jack at The Annex

Genesee & Jack Daniel's

It’s been forever and a day since I’ve added a new Beer Shots entry – all the way back in August! To be fair, I haven’t been all that good of a blogger recently at all. With that being said, what better to get back into it than with a shot from one of my favorite dives on the planet… The Annex. I went to The Annex a while back to get a burger for … Continue reading

Around The Campfire

Around The Campfire

We did some camp firing this past weekend and this shot that had been in my drafts for quite some time came to mind. If memory serves me correctly this was the final camp fire at our old house before we moved. We moved out in October 2014 and moved into our new home in December after a couple month stint with the in-laws. Family. Jack on the rocks. Camp fire. S’mores. Fall is right … Continue reading

Summer Shandy at Quaker Steak & Lube

Summer Shandy - Quaker Steak

Summer is upon us and it’s time for another entry to Beer Shots! I don’t know about you, but as the weather gets warmer I tend to drink different types of beers. Winter is for darker stouts and summer is for IPA, wheat beers and shandy! This particular photo is from a couple of years ago and marked my first Summer Shandy of the year. I don’t drink them all summer as they tend to … Continue reading

Chillwave & Jack at The Tap House

Chillwave & Jack Daniel's

The Lincoln Tap House is our regular spot for Happy Hour on Friday evenings. Some nights we just stay for a drink or two and other times it turns into a longer affair. I’m not traditionally a huge IPA fan, but there are a couple of exceptions to that and Chillwave Double IPA from Great Lakes Brewing is one of them. A shot and a beer to kick off the weekend never looked so good.

Miller Lite In The Woods of Hocking Hills

Beer Shots - Hocking Hills, OH

I snapped this Beer Shots entry a few years back when Wife and I went to Hocking Hills, Ohio for a get away weekend. We had a little cabin in the middle of the woods complete with a hot tub overlooking a ravine. It was super relaxing… especially since I had a cooler stocked with beer and wine. I catch a lot of flack from my beer drinking friends but I’ll tell you what… I … Continue reading

Shot and a Beer – What’s Your Choice?

Shot & A Beer

I have no idea where this picture was taken. It looks like it may be either the Winking Lizard or The Annex. Either way it looks damn good and a mighty fine way to kick off whatever evening it was. What I can tell you with a pretty high degree of certainty is that the beer was either Miller Lite or Yuengling and the shot was most definitely Jack Daniel’s. That’s my go to. Are you … Continue reading
