I actually drank it while eating fish and chips which worked out pretty well. Then again, anything deep fried with any beer is usually a safe bet.

I love Rogue!

Went to Hyde Park Brewing Co yesterday. They had some decent stuff. The porter was okay, but nothing to write home about. I liked the red lager a lot. Their special right now is a decent dunkel. In general, they tend to make more lighter stuff; they had a good variety of lagers. Overall, solid, fundamentally sound brew pub, worth going to if you end up that far (poor word choice, because it's not actually really far away) upstate.

A nice article for a good laugh:

Beer Taste Test

The best line is the last:

"None of these beers has enough complexity and balance to be excellent, but Coors comes fairly close."

I didn't know that piss-water can be described as tasting excellent.

This month I have been seeking out session beers. Good tasting beer with low ABV%, picked up Bitter American (in cans!) it is pretty decent. A little more hoppy than I like but it was a refreshing change.

You mean Session brand name? I am into Session Fest. Session Black was kind of average. I like their 10oz bottles. I also noticed they're made by Full Sail. See what looking for calorie info teaches you!

session beer

A beer that is low in alcohol and has a balanced flavor of both hops and malt. The purpose being so that it can be drank over a long session of time with out overwhelming the palate or getting the drinker too intoxicated.

Like, duh!, just kidding. I just heard the term myself and it made sense.

Well that's why I ASKED. I noticed you didn't capitalize the S. But I also wanted to write about what I was drinking of course. Never heard of Bitter American... oughta send a case to the Politics forum :uni:

Ahh 21st Amendment brewery! I just looked it up -- I think I'd heard of/wanted to try Monk's Blood...

I have been looking for 21st Amendment's Hell or High Watermelon for ages, but haven't found it yet. I know it is seasonal but even in season I have been having a hard time finding it.

Also looks like Flounder Brewing in Hillsborough, NJ is coming along based on his Facebook site. He should start brewing sometime this year and will make his beer available in local bars and liquor stores.

Miller Lite is not even all that cheap. Here it's like $20 something for a 30. PBR is like $14 for a 30. I like drinking good beers like Sam Adams, but if I'm down to party Miller Lite is the way to go.

Cousin Robbie... ??? Is that you?!?!?!

One of my husband's cousins nearly got sneered out of a brew pub when he asked if they had Mi... ahhh yes... It was Michelob, not Miller light.

Been on reddit for some time now and just realized that there might be a beer subreddit....ofcourse there is..with 40K members. Anyway I have been fishing around it for about an hour and it seems awesome so if you have time to kill and feel like learning a bit more about whats out there check it out:

http://www.reddit.com/r/beer/

Also, on r/beer, I just read that Blue Moon came out with a Blackberry Tart Ale. I enjoy blue Moon if there is nothing else on tap where I am but this sounds pretty dame good to me.

I just loaded up my Mr Beer home brew. I got it as a christmas gift two years ago and never got around to doing it.

Hope its good. Irish stout in 4-6 weeks (I hope!)

Here is a nice write-up about a nano-brewery that is set to open up around Memorial Day in Hillsborough: Flounder Brewing.

Hillsborough Patch

Looking forward to new faces in the scene. I keep trying to get down to Kane's open beer tasting and brewery tour.

I have used mine twice. The first time I made the pale ale then the second time I made a dark stout with molasses...well needless to say it was garbage to drink but cooking with it was awesome. Oh and two bottles blew out the bottom and shot like rockets across the basement. Its fun to play around with but hopefully what you come out in the end with is a hell out alot better then my garbage. haha

You mean Coors came out with it, Blue Moon isn't a brewery, it's just a name Coors uses to hide the fact that it's not really a craft beer.

As for Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar, I just finished one now. I was so excited the last time I was in the store to see that it comes in six packs now! I rarely buy Rogue anymore since I realized that everyone's 22oz bottles tend to be overpriced compared to the 12oz bottles, and almost all of Rogue's beers are only available in 22oz bottles, so it felt good to buy this again without feeling like I'm being raked over the coals.

With regards to homebrewing, my buddies and I just bottled a barleywine and have an IPA fermenting now. We didn't get a brewing kit or anything, we just got some equipment from a store that also sells ingredients and then we boil it in a big pot and ferment it in a five gallon bucket. One of my teammates uses a Mr. Beer homebrewing kit and I don't know if it instructs you to do this or not, but he bottles his beer in plastic soda bottles, which seems to me like it wouldn't keep oxygen out as well as regular beer bottles. It also seems like the recipes they give you are for relatively light beers that are cheap to make, but we like to make beers with more body, so we just look online for recipes. We plan on eventually coming up with our own recipes but we're not that advanced yet. So far we have made a milk stout that came out much hoppier than it should have because we were too drunk to remember to take the hops out, a porter that was fantastic, and the barleywine and IPA that aren't done yet. Without me, my friends made a Belgian that was really good and an imperial stout that was infected but I thought was still very good as long as you referred to it as a cherry imperial stout or something like that haha. It's too bad we will never be able to recreate that one though.

I am going to have the brown nector next, I saw the six packs also when I was at the store last time.

Yea, I normally wouldn't have the patience for doing this but I am bored. Strangely enough I got a magazine in the mail about homebrew yesterday. It was latin to me with all the items in it but interesting to read anyway.
