  1. I could not find a thread that listed this in it and I was wondering if anyone else makes it here? it is not an alcoholic beer does not require anything more than ginger, brown sugar, a blender and a big glass jar to make so I am not sure if this is the right place to post this..( feel free to move it if it isn't) What it is ...is a fizzy and refreshing drink I grew up consuming as a child... we actually called it "kid beer" I just picked up some fantastic, fat, juicy ginger hands at the market, for a very good price... I was getting ready to make a batch today and thought I would see if
  2. One of our writers at Intrepid Media (and an enthusiastic home brewer) has published an article putting forward this controversial idea: beer is more complex than wine, and that's why wine people don't like it. A Hop From the Grape Vine. Among his points: Thought the beer aficionados around here might be interested in reading and weighing in.

    Silly Beer

    Picked this up this morning, not because I wanted it, just to add to my collection of silliness. Love the brewery's honesty in their choice of name. My only question is "Why? I mean "Why?'" (to be uttered in a tone of despair). It tastes like some one had a glass of grapefruit juice with breakfast and then forgot to wash the glass before pouring a beer hours later.
  4. I have decided to go for my first level of Cicerone, Certified Beer Server. Is there anyone here that has taken this test? If so what should I read to study for the online test? Are the questions upfront or do they throw in a few where you have to really stop and think about it? All of this is to further my knowledge for my customers where I work. I already have my first level sommelier under my belt and am wanting to expand my knowledge. We have serious beer customers coming in the liquor store, especially with all the new craft brewers popping up here in Oklahoma. Any suggestions grea
  5. Have you tasted this stuff? https://www.guinness.com/en-us/our-beers/guinness-nitro-ipa/ I had the unfortunate experience tonight. I don't know what Guinness is trying to foist off on the world as an IPA much less a Nitro much less a beer but it is crap. THere is no IPA in the dreck. It has no flavor and no taste. I don't know who wrote the stuff for that link to their site but they should be dismissed as well as the brewmaster who thinks the beer drinkers of the world are such sheep they might think they might like this garbage. Save your money and if you want a decent nitro beer, loo
  6. [Host's note: To avoid an excessive load on our servers this topic has been split. The discussion continues from here] A couple of beers from a relatively recent trip to London. Yakima red ale on draft. Yakima is brewed by Meantime, a brewing company located in Greenwich, using five hop varieties from the Yakima valley in Washington state. The beer was moderately hoppy with a good malt to bitterness balance. Very nice. Beavertown 8 Ball rye IPA, an American-style IPA brewed in London. Love the wild label. It was caramel-c
  7. I studied in Australia for a semester in '02, and I miss the taste of Fourex and Victoria Bitter, which I was told were Queensland's beers of choice. Does anyone know a place where I can get them?
  8. Anybody tried, it was available last spring here on tap, and this year it is also bottled, similar to blue moon, but also has lemon and lime. Curious if anybody else enjoys. http://www.anheuser-busch.com/press_room/s...eat_022707.html
  9. On another site there was some discussion about this. Does Rolling Rock taste the same now as it always did? There were some who said it did not but many of those folks were talking from nostalgia not real taste. We all bemoan the closure of the Latrobe brewery, but does the beer taste any different? A/B is well known for adjunct brewing. Was Rolling Rock from Latrobe adjunct brewed? Is it adjunct brewed by A/B. I will say I tasted no real difference. RR was never any great beer, but was always popular in my area. Any thoughts by those more learned than I am.?
  10. Happy to be a new member here and I hope to become a fairly active poster on the beer forum... Whenever my 2yr old and twin baby sons allow me a little time off for good(?) behaviour, that is! Given that my job is reviewing beer (I'm learning fast, but can't compete with many of you, I'm sure) and that I'm based in Hudson, QC, I am well-placed to discuss Quebec-brewed beer at the very least! So I just wanted to begin a thread about QC beer. What's your favourite, what's your overall impression of Quebec beers and how widely available are they? I saw some in a shop in Burlington last week while
  11. Now I know this beer is far from new but until recently it was only available in bottles locally. I had it canned yesterday and the blueberry flavor was amazing, nothing like it is bottled. In my opinion the best bargain beer, not to mention its probably the most local beer available (New Ulm Minnesota). Drank way to many last night on the canoe.
  12. Slate quotes Lew Bryson extensively on the slide beer's been experiencing in the marketplace lately. It seems the attraction of connoiseurship is bringing people to wine, and the low-brow market niche the megabrewers have carved for themselves is starting to feel a bit constrained. There is a great big world of beers out there, but the industrial manufacture of absolutely consistent and unchallenging product has become beer's identity in the market. Can craft brewing pick up some of this slack and head off a mass defection to wine? Lots of beers outclass wines in terms of tradition and bac
  13. With a new fish market in town, I've bought oysters a few times lately. Being poor, I can't always afford a 1996 Premier Cru Chablis to drink with them, and I like beer pretty well anyway. Now, I know all about Guinness and oysters, but I'm eating them at home, Guinness is strictly an on-tap beer for me, and I don't really care too much about Guinness anyhow. Here's what I've tried instead: A bottle of Alaskan Smoked Porter that I found in the basement. I try to buy a case of this stuff when I remember, and this was the last of the 2001 vintage. It went pretty well. Same dark-beer appeal

    Bishop's Finger

    I live in Union, N.J. and remember enjoying an English ale called Bishop's Finger from Shepherd Neame about 10 years ago. I've been looking for it recently and can't find it. Is it still being imported into the U.S? If so, does anyone know where it is available in my neck of the woods? Any help would be appreciated.
  15. Looking speculatively at the wild mugwort nearby, I wondered what home-brewed herbal beers were like. Has anybody made them? Tasted them? Seen them on sale? Apart from mugwort, I've always been curious about nettle beer, but the only fermented beverage I've ever made was ginger beer. How hard are herb beers to make? (Seriously, curiosity is going to kill me one of these days...). The nearest thing I could find on this subforum was a reference to heather ale.
  16. The brewing world is in a bit of an uproar right now: there is a serious shortage of hops on the market, and grain prices are climbing. The hops shortage is predicted to go 3 years, unless unknown and untapped hops sources come to light. I'm interested in seeing how the fight between economics and beer plays out in our pint glasses. I know that prices will climb a bit, but a 50%+ increase in raw materials cost won't result in a +50% end cost... I'm more interested in what is going to get brewed by the guys who just can't get enough hops from their suppliers to keep putting out hyper-hopped
  17. Article in today's Wall Street Journal (I don't believe it's behind the subscriber wall, so try this link) discusses how the big three aren't identifying themselves on the label as manufacturers of "faux craft brews" they make and market, i.e., Blue Moon, Leinenkugel's. Some small craft brewers think it's deceitful on the part of the big brewers. The biggies respond, hey, if Kellogg's doesn't promote its ownership of Kashi and Toyota its Lexus, what's the problem? The article finishes by quoting one craft brewer as believing that, while the big guys may cut in to the small guys' market share,
  18. My brewing partner and i are going to attempt this in a couple of days time. He has some extensive experience brewing beer and has all the gear. We do not however yet have a recipe. Does anyone have any good ones and/or tips?
  19. I love this time of year because of the special beers for the winter season. I'd love to know do you have a favorite? I am trying to make a list of seasonals to buy before they disappear. so .... whats your pleasure?
  20. Hello all, I am hoping to get a British-style beer fest launched in the Montreal region for next summer/fall and need some advice. Does anybody here have experience of organising a festival? What do I need to know? Where can I source beer from? I realise some of this is licensing questions, so I'll need to take this up with Quebec's authorities, but any general advice would be very much appreciated. I'd like to feature beers from the US and Europe, if possible. The British-style fest model is a bit of a departure from most north American festivals, which typically charge high entry prices and
  21. I pinched this from Stickman's weekly column for July 29 "For our numerous readers in LA, here is some good news. The finest beer from these parts, Beer Lao, is available in your neck of the woods. For those in the LA area, the grocery store with the large spirit offering in front, on Hollywood Boulevard in Thaitown, is the place to visit. Yes, Beer Lao is worth going out of your way for! The Thai Temple is the pride and joy of Thai people in America . So, maybe this is the natural first city they would introduce this product?" If anyone's come across this yet, I'd love to hear about how
  22. Found this little brew at the Total Wine in charlotte. The manager told me they'd gotten a small supply in, and the distributer/importer had promptly gone outta business. Being a scottish beer, I figured I'd take a chance Smile Was not disappointed. Pours pale blond, hint of cloudiness from the lees being stirred up (Oops, my bad) Very balanced taste, hint of hops but mostly sweet malt and fruity esters. Medium bodied, VERY easy drinking. Now, the kicker? The stuff 'expired' december 05, so I got my nice Scottish beer pre-aged. I'd love to find a fresher sample to see how the extra time makes
  23. The Drafting Room is hosting an irresistable event with Victory 10 Years Alt which is not even available directly at the brewery. More info here See you there!
