As the world rotates, we find ourselves inching towards one of the finer times of the year in the midwest. The sun begins to shine bright, the ground is wet, and most importantly, the snow withers away. It is now early spring before the bugs climb out from wherever it is they hide. It is safe to say, it is an enjoyable time for many of us, as we thaw our frozen limbs.

After sleeping in late and starting to realize that I was locked out of my own garage, I figured it would be an appropriate time to take an extended walk through the city. Whether you hate winter, or hate the hot humid whether; we all have our very own perspectives in life. Some perspectives are intriguing – others, maybe not so much. After all, it is what makes us human.

After recently discovering the LA producer, it is quite clear what his intentions are. Influenced by the jazzy beats like J Dilla and Nujabes, Aric possesses the quality of heart felt rhythms much like his predecessors before him had. Thick textures filled with original instruments, such as the piano, guitar and drums – Aric stands out as one of the realist producers. Press play and vibe out.


[MADE] Brews of the Week

It looks like spring beers are beginning to roll in sooner than later. One of the first to hit the liquor stores, is brought to you by the great Sierra Nevada brewery. This year for their Beer Camp series, they are featuring a spring seasonal titled, “Hoppy Lager”.

The brew, which tastes just like its title, is spot on delicious. Sitting at a whopping 7% ABV, it is virtually hidden with taste. Clean, crisp, hoppy, all with an earthy lager taste – Sierra Nevada has made one fine beer with their Hoppy Lager. For under $10 a six pack, this will be a spring favorite.

Wow. . . so after recently discovering our fellow midwest brewery, Saugatuck Brewery, out of MI., it is apparent that these guys know what they’re doing. A few weeks back we featured their unique Neapolitan Milk Stout and now we’re featuring they’re silky smooth Bonfire Brown Ale.

The Bonfire Brown ale would be prime sipping on next to a fire chillin’. The brew pours with little to no head, and features a dark brown / reddish color to it. This brown ale first tastes of roasted nuts and maybe toffee, with a light smokey malt finish. Absolutely this beer is very well balanced.
