    Dogfish 60 Minute IPA

    Just discovered Dogfish Head's 60 Minute IPA. I bought the first six-pack off my local store's shelves and consumed most of it in joy and wonderment that very night (it was Friday, I was allowed). The bits I didn't greedily guzzle went to my girlfriend, who liked it almost as much as I did, but backed off in defrence to me when I began to sob and moan and kiss the bottle. For those of you in the middle parts of the east coast of USAia, this beer is a must have. It may have caused to me forswear even my beloved Hop Devil. It's a bottle-conditioned real ale with a great, mildly citrusy hop flavor with a slightly-roasty malt flavor right behind. (I'm not a trained reviewer: I liked it, it was good, go try it yourself... unless you live in the Northern Virginia area, in which case keep your mitts off it, because it's mine, MINE! DO YOU HEAR?) It's nowhere near as overpowering as Dogfish's 90 Minute IPA, if you were put off by that stuff. And at a mere 6% ABV, it might be my new session beer of choice.

    Brooklyn Brewery

    Anyone ever go out there and take a tour? I thought about stopping by.

    Long Neck Beer Towers ... really!

    here it is from their website, of course ... This is supposed to be the newest breakthrough in offering beer to one's guests ... it does have a certain appeal and from their "press" it is catching on .... visually appealing? will not break during everyday use ... Seen one? Hope you never do? Think it has any merit? Feedback?

    The Beer Dinner Drought

    Aside from the monthly beer dinners at Monk's Cafe in Philadelphia, and a less formal monthly one at Waterzooi on Long Island, NY, there are fewer and fewer beer dinners these days, it seems to me. But prove me wrong; tell us about any good beer dinners in your neck of the woods. I was inspired to post this by a menu I received today from Todd Ashman, perennial medal winning brewer when he was at Flossmoor Station in Flossmoor, IL, and now the new brewer at Titletown Brewing Co. in Green Bay, WI. To welcome Ashman, this is what Titletown BC will serve up as an Inaugural Beer Dinner with Todd, for, get this, $17.50 per person. And I hear the weather there this time of year is just special. To wit: Inauguration Dinner Invitation Join us in welcoming Brewmaster Todd Ashman to Titletown Brewing Company. Enjoy a gourmet Wisconsin meal where each course is coupled with the perfect ale to complement and contrast the complex flavors in both the food and brew. Prior to seating Wisconsin Craft Cheeses and Assorted Sausages with Railyard Ale Beer Mustard Beer Pairing - American style Wheat Ale and India Pale Ale Soup Stilton Beer Cheese soup Beer Pairing – Old Fort Howard Pale Ale Salad Baby Spinach and Endive with Wisconsin “Blue” Cheese, Door County Cherries Caramelized with Toasted Oats and Molasses Brown Ale then Topped with Raspberry Honey Ale Vinaigrette Dressing and Walnut Crustini Beer Pairing – “400” Honey Ale Entrée Smoked Pork Chop served on a bed of spent grain stuffing with warm German Potato Salad and fresh vegetables Beer Pairing – Johnny Blood McNally Irish Red and Railyard Ale Dessert Warm Bread Pudding Topped with a Russian Imperial Stout Bourbon Sauce Beer Pairing – Russian Imperial Stout and / or Toasted Oats Molasses Brown Ale Starts at 3:30pm with Tours of the Brewery and Historic Train Station with dinner served promptly at 5:00pm After Dinner: Hang out with Todd and Talk Beer!! Cost: $17.50 plus gratuity For those of you who have never sampled Ashman's beers, they are extraordinary, and I would imagine that will far outshine the decent, starightforward menu they have planned above. So, are beer dinners a dying breed or what?

    Dogfish Head Immort Ale

    This amazing expression from Dogfish head is 11% abv, double-fermented, once on ale yeast and a second time on Champagne yeast. The organic ingredients include juniper berry, vanilla and Massachusetts molasses. After fermentation, it is oak aged for 2 months. The color is a gorgeous ruby/amber with fine bubbles, yeilding a fizzy, white head. Strangely, I find it a beautiful beer to watch effervesce, as it reminds me of champagne. The aroma is outstanding with hints of molasses, pine, chocolate and nuts. The palate is remarkably well-balanced with loads of molasses, pine, milk chocolate and roasted nuts. The finish is long, rich and satisfying, echoing the palate very well. There is a touch of bitter oak on the finish (tannic?) that balances the beer perfectly. After dinner or stand alone beer without any hesitation. 4.6 out of 5

    The Summer Crop

    This summer I am determined to explore the wealth of both summer beers and summer-friendly beers. So far, I've been grooving on: Flying Fish Farmhouse, Cherry Hill, NJ, crisp, bursting with hop and herb notes. Sly Fox IPA Series, Phoenixville, PA, being made with 9 different hop varities; so far the Kent Goldings, Styrian and Cascade varietals have been spectacularly puckery and floral. Pilsner Urquell , Czech Republic, has been popping up all over Philly (and is on tap everywhere in Miami Beach), and on tap you realize what a truly great, tangy beer it is. I'll be on the hunt all summer. Suggestions?

    Beer Cooler

    I was just shopping in Tuesday Morning and ran across a "Beer Cooler". It is similar to a beer "huggie" except that it is filled with whatever the liquid that is in ice packs. You put it in the freezer and it keeps your beer cold. It also says that it will chill a beer in 5 minutes ... just in case you don't have any cold ones ... and that it lasts for hours. Has anyone ever seen these and, if so, how do they work? Of course, I bought 2 of them to try myself but, alas, I'm still at work.

    Anything good in Ft. Lauderdale?

    I may have an hour or two to kill tomorrow night in FLL. Are there any bars of note with good beer selections? I didn't see anything on pubcrawler.com that jumped out at me.

    For the brewers out there

    Hello brewers... Just wanted to let you all know about a new feature on Brew-Monkey.com. Over the last few months I have been putting together a database of yeast info and how it works with the different beer styles. If you go to the Yeast Information section of http://www.brew-monkey.com/brewschool/ you can check it out. It has taken quite a bit to compile the data and code the pages - so I hope you find it useful. I haven't seen anything like this on the web before - so maybe I'm the first :) As always, if you have articles, product reviews or other related items that you want posted - please let me know. If you know someone who may be interested - please pass this on. Hope to see you around on Brew-Monkey.com.

Mead provided by Llurgashall, Petworth, West Suffex UK Thw label says its 70% malt liquor and 30% mead and its corked like a champange bottle. Im going to give this a try tonight and i will post what i think of it

    Friday The Firkinteenth in Philadelphia

    In less than 10 days, we will once again experience Friday The Firkinteenth at the Grey Lodge Public House (6235 Frankford Ave., Philadelphia). a benchmark beer event in Philadelphia for the last 7 years. Every Friday the 13th, our buddy Scoats (owner Mike Scotese) brings forth almost a dozen (I think it's actually 11 this year) small barrels of cask- conditioned beer, arranges them around his bar and serves them up via gravity pour, to the giddy delight of beer aficionados from up and down the East Coast. This year, the lineup is really impressive, I think. You can check out the details of this year's lineup on the Grey Lodge's website, www.greylodge.com (check out the Random Bar Joke Generator, too!), and have your taste buds teased. If you've ever wanted to taste a selection of extraordinary local beers, served up in small servings for variety's (and safety's) sake, and served up as they were meant to be enjoyed, without extraneous carbonation, you will be rewarded with an experience like no other. I havent missed one of these yet, and every year, the selection and offerings get better and better. This is truly an epicurean event. It starts at 6PM on Friday June 13th, so get there extra early, it fills up quickly. Hope to see many of you there! (I have no financial or public relations interest in the Grey Lodge, but I do love telling people about the place, a truly unique part of Philly's hospitality sector.)

    Decent nonalcoholic beers?

    (this is my first post ever, so please forgive and gently guide me if I make mistakes) So here I am, eight weeks pregnant, and two of my hometown teams are in playoff mode right now, which likely means some evenings with the sports-fan spouse at our local watering holes to watch both games. Fine with me, but I get tired of drinking water at the bar and wonder if you have suggestions for good nonalcoholic beers? Or, more accurately, ones that don't taste like gym socks. I have tried: Haake Beck St. Pauli NA (both not bad) O Doul's (eh) Coors Cutter (so bad the memory of it is triggering nausea...must eat some saltines) None of these are decent enough to have more than one, and most are pretty foul. Also, I would love to hear either fact or opinion on this: why do more micro/craft breweries not set to making a decent nonalcoholic beer? Is it just too difficult to dealcoholize decent beer, or do they figure there's not enough of a market? I went to several wonderful micros while I was in Colorado a few weeks ago and most looked at me like I was crazy for even asking if there was anything they made that I could drink.

    Beer Styles: Brown Ales

    Same idea as as the IPA thread here. Brown Ales are a favorite of mine, for some reason. I've just always liked the nutty flavors and the caramel taste. But I'm a wimp. I've already admitted to not being a hop head. And yes, I'm sure the term is damn unscientific and unspecific. Although hey... Michael Jackson seems to think its okay... If so, tell me why, I guess. Otherwise, lets just throw down some names. These guys list some guidlines. Are they right? Here's a bit: This seems quite wide. But I seem to know one when I'm drinking it. Or do I? Are a lot of beers mislabeled as Brown Ales? Here's another very short take on Brown Ales, really just this bit:

    Friday The Firkinteenth

    Hands down the best annual beer event in Philadelphia happens when the calendar graces craft beer enthusiasts with a Friday the 13th. Some years there are actually more than one, and for that those same enthusiasts are doubly and triply grateful. But this year, we are blessed early in the Philly area, and Mike Scotese (Scoats), owner/publican of the Grey Lodge Public House (www.greylodge.com, but you know that) has outdone himself. For the first time, 14 firkins of real, gravity-poured brews will grace the Grey Lodge bar, served up in two sessions on this, the eleventh Friday The Firkinteenth: Brewers Art Pepper Triple, Baltimore, MD Dogfish Head Aprihop, Rehoboth, DE Flying Fish Big Fish Barley Wine, Cherry Hill, NJ General Lafayette Scotch Ale, Lafayette Hill, PA Heavyweight TBA, Ocean Township, NJ Iron Hill Old Ale, West Chester, PA/Newark, DE Lancaster Four Grain, Lancaster, PA Legacy Nor'easter, Reading, PA Manayunk Buster Brown Ale, Phila, PA Nodding Head Imperial IPA, Phila, PA Sly Fox Scottish Ale, Phoenixville, PA Troegs Nugget Nectar Ale, Harrisburg, PA Victory TBA, Downingtown, PA Yards George Jefferson, Phila, PA Wow 14 fricking firkins! According to Scoats, the first 7 will be tapped and ready to go at 6pm. The second 7 will be tapped at 9:00pm. Much thought (and I'm sure much spirited debate) will go into having a good mix and balance on each tier. More info, as it becomes finalized, especially those TBA beers, will be on www.greylodge.com. But it's the honest, unvarnished, casual nature of this mini-festival that endears it to beers geeks up and down the East Coast. An added kick is the opportunity to hang out with almost all of the brewers themselves, who've provided the beers for the night. An extraordinary celebration of beer, worth travelling for.
  22. Has anyone seen it in stores? I've checked a few of my local stores and nobody has it. A woman at Canal's (Rt 73, Marlton) told me they didn't get any in this year.

    GroundHog Day at the Grey Lodge

    I love the promotions that come from this place, my local beer hangout of choice. This is an excerpt from the bar's website, one of the most entertaining beer sites anywhere: <<"Groundhog Day/Lucky Cat Night" Monday February 2nd -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- We will once again be chasing away the winter blues on Groundhog's Day with a day long Hawaiian Shirt Island Party on Monday, February 2nd. We will start things off at bright and very early at 7am with a Groundhog's Day Beer Breakfast. Catch Punxatowney Phil on our four TVs while enjoying some amazing beers and a free breakfast. At 7am, we will have on tap a sixtel of TROEGS MAD ELF, a sixtel of DOGFISH HEAD FESTINA LENTE PEACH LAMBIC, a 1/2 barrel FLYING FISH COFFEE PORTER, a 1/2 barrel of SLY FOX DUNKEL WEISSE, a 1/2 barrel of BREWERS ART LA PETROLEUSE, and last barrel of the 2003 batch of YARDS SAISON. We will have orange juice on hand to make Saison mimosas. The Mad Elf and Festina Lente will go fast, so make it in at 7am to make sure you get some. I'm sure you will agree that's a line-up worth showing up at the crack of dawn for. Also due at 7am is KING GROUNDHOG. The King is a Northeast Philadelphia native. His website is http://www.kinggroundhog.com At 8:30am we will have a contest for the best/worst Hawaiian Shirt. There will be prizes. And FREE LEIS ALL DAY! Later that day at 7pm, "Wissinoming Winnie", with the help of her "Inner Circle", will make her Beer Prognistication. Like Punxatowney Phil, Wissinoming Winnie - the Grey Lodge's Lucky Cat - is a prognosticator. Instead prognosticating weather (ho hum), she prognisticates BEER! She will determine if there will be 6 more weeks of winter seasonal beers or if the spring seasonals will be early this year. Immediately after Winnie's Prognostication, PAIN RELEIVAZ will bust some mad rhymes at the GLP. Pain Releivaz are D.J. LIL Guy (Bryan Selders, Dogfish Head Lead Brewer) and Grandmaster I.B.U. (Sam Calagione, Dogfish Head President). They will also be bringing with them a cask of DOGFISH HEAD 90 MINUTE IPA. >>> You can't imagine the crowd that shows up at 7AM. The crowd is almost as much fun as the one that shows up for the bar's annual "Friday the Firkinteenth" celebrations. More on THAT event THIS February 13th, a Friday), in another post. Of course, I have no financial or other interest in this or any event at the Grey Lodge. It's just a damn hoot of a place.
