Radicle Effect Brewerks only releases their Roasted Garlic Stout but twice a year. Today (12/20) is the final tapping of the year. This is a beer you can enjoy in 3 different ways:

  • Fresh from the tap
  • With a garlic booster
  • As a Garlic Depth Charge

However you like it...now would be the time to grab it before it's gone.

Today Charlie Cole from the Blue Cat Brewing Company brought me this delicious stout and is excited about his own Blue Cat beers just released: Arkham Stout and Lua Lenore Belgian Farmhouse Ale just tapped and the last kegs of Big Bad Dog, Harper Leigh, Blue Cat Blonde, and Mild Mannered Pup are available along with new hoodies and t-shirts.

Should you Hide Christmas Presents in These Popular Spots?

With Christmas just around the corner, it’s not too late to start preparing! If you want to surprise your loved ones with a gift that’s sure to delight, make sure to hide it in an unexpected place that they won’t search first! From under their car seats to inside their underwear drawers, people tend to put their gifts in all sorts of strange locations. The last thing you want is for someone to come back from their Christmas break disappointed because they never found the gift you worked so hard on! 

So here are some popular hiding places.

What The Quad Cities Did For Fun in the 90's

Many times over the years, I'll be talking with friends about years gone by and I'll say "take me back".

Every generation goes through this, I assume. Looking back at a more simple time where responsibilities haven't set in and life seems fun. Opportunities are endless.

Let's go back to the 1990's to Wacky Waters, 50 Cent Beer night and revisit Mallards Mania!
