  • Didnt we do the whole beer snob thing yesterday, subby?


    Once or twice a month is plenty - this just cuts into drinking time...

  • EKU Dark and EKU 28, if you ever had either of them, you'd never drink American piss water again.

    That can says bottled beer.

    FAIL!
  • Thanks for reminding me my seasonal batch of Maple Syrup Stout over carbonated this year and destroyed half the bottles.

    /Homebrewing and taking care of your young child should not happen simultaneously.
  • Bringing a case of Westies ('vleteren 12) back to the states for Christmas gifts, so I'm gettin' a kick.

    Thanks for reminding me of that cliffhanger...good god this show is going to take forever to be back on
  • i've got a serious question for you americans: Why is it that all I seem to find when im down there are super hoppy, super bitter, basically undrinkable beers?

    Is it a regional thing (i spend most of my time in the north east) ?

    Most local beers here tend to be a lot smoother (think Creemore's Ale or the delicious Kellerbier, etc).

    what am I missing here. I dont want my mouth to pucker when i drink a beer.
  • Someday, I am going to dive in and start making my own beer...but only when I have the room and the time.

    In the meantime, the little amount of drinking I have time for anymore is more than adequately accommodated by a trip to the liqueur sto.

    You can make the cheap beer taste like the $7 a bottle stuff by adding some razzamataz to it. Well, you can make it taste like a fancy belgian raspberry beer anyway.

    So ... freakin... tasty


    Yup. Just discovered them recently after moving to the area, and I only wish the availability was better. Lawson's and Hill Farmstead are making me really enjoy my new home.

    It's just a fad. There are other beers available. Just stop drinking what the bartender is pushing and explore the tap rack.
  • Response when people posting about their favorite local restaurants: "That sounds nice, my favorite is..."

    Because we've hit an IPA trend, basically. Used to, almost every craft beer was a smooth, brown ale or an irish red or something along those lines. These last couple of years, everyone's gone IPA crazy. So brewers think they need to throw tons of hops into every batch.

    Which I don't mind. I dig a good IPA but yeah, we could use some more of the other styles too.
  • I love me some obscure craft beers and I do spend quite a bit of cash to drink them, but I'll still drink the swill/bottom shelf if it's all that's available.

    I'm a drunk first and a beer/liquor snob second.

    It's a cultural insecurity thing. American's have to be "the most extreme" at whatever they do. They're a good country; I'm not sure what they're overcompensating for.

    i have, well i;ve tried. and in my experience i've found very few US beers that arent hopped out to the max. Sadly, i seem to be fall back on Yuengling most of the time

    North east is all about Hops.
    Colorado is all about "special-b" (I farking hate special-b).
    Minnesota beer is a north east/German hybrid.
