Much to my surprise, good friend @jchristie sent me a Tweet this morning to alert me to the fact that he had come back from yesterday’s Kate Day at the Portsmouth Brewery with a bottle of Kate The Great for me. This will be my first bottle of the supposed Best Beer in America. I’m really excited to see what all the hype is about.

So be sure to check back shortly for a full review of the beer (I had thought about trying to save the bottle for a special occasion but I just don’t think my excitement will be able to wait that long) and my final judgment — is Kate the Great really the Best Beer in America (and the Second Best Beer in the World) or is it all just the result of  The Hype Machine?!

Also, if you’re not following me on Twitter yet, well, why the hell aren’t you? Come say hi @livingstonmedia



  1. Can’t wait to hear the review. I read about this brew a few weeks ago and tried to find it locally with no luck — I’d love to hear if it’s worth the trip!

  2. Kate really is a lovely beer – you won’t be disappointed!  My fiancee & I got two bottles at the last event in June: had one in October & one in January.  Wonderful flavor both times.  Have fun!
