what beers are you drinking?


Recommended Posts

I'm not a huge fan of the Oberon but it seems the most accessible for the masses so it is the one that is most often on tap. It is a summer beer most change out to Pale Ale for the fall/winter (I like the Pale Ale much better).

 

And you will do well to keep searching for the Stout's. The double-cream, available in the winter only I think, is spectacular.

Click. Way too young. And let's not forget his great whisky writings.

okay, my friends, bell's kalamazoo stout is a very good thing. not a whole lot of head but it holds for a long time. dry, floral nose, and a rich malty, not aggressively hopped taste with a smooth finish. and dark, very dark--almost as dark as rancho gordo's soul. if the double cream is better, i'm going to buy a case as soon as it is available.

 

perfect for a gloomy, rainy afternoon.

Weihenstepaner--a light beer for a humid evening. I like this on tap, but something must get lost in translation during the bottling process, as this didn't taste like much of anything.

 

Which kind did you have?

Mikkeller Beer Geek Breakfast - it's technically an oatmeal stout with some coffee added to it hence the playful name. I'm not a big fan of stouts in general and coffee beer in particular but this stuff is really great, as a nightcap actually - elegant balanced taste.

 

And since pilsners were mentioned on another thread, i just got some Gold Era Imperial Pilsner, one can guess judging just by the name alone that it's a Dogfish Head thing - malty and bitter, very nice.

 

oh and the best recent beer experience? Sebago Frye's Leap IPA on tap at their brewpub in Portland, ME - a pure hoppy pleasure from the first sip to the last one - it's really a rare quality.

Anyone else notice that Michael Jackson, beer guru, died?

 

He was in Austin less than a year ago, teaching a class.

 

 

Obit

 

Terry Gross played a repeat of a 1990s Fresh Air interview with Mr Jackson today. He spoke of beer, putting one's heart into the beverage, and why brewing is a more demanding process than wine making.

some more of bell's kalamazoo stout, and i like it as much as the first time.

 

i also grew to like the third coast a lot more. just a question of being patient and letting the beer warm up a little out of the fridge before pouring it.

Oh no, when did he die?

The Brooklyn Brewery had a Beer University (that means a few classes) about five years ago and I went to a couple Michael Jackson classes. I'm pretty sure that he introduced me to lambics, among other things. The class was very interesting and as he got drunker, he meandered away from beer and into other subjects.

Recently I read an article about brewing root beer and I thought I might try my hand at that and at some point venture into beer. I guess I should start a new thread but are there any home brewers out there?
