Hey has anyone tried their hand in marinating steaks in beer? I have a few vacuum packed venison tenderloins from last year and I just got a bottle of rogue farms chipotle ale. I was going to cut up some garlic and onions and let them marinate in it overnight.

In Topic: 13-Game Plans Released

These plans are about $900/per person for like section 110, 109, and about $700/per person for 115 and 108, fyi. So about $70/per person per game and $55/per person per game respectively.

Yeah that's outrageous. Instead of getting a semi flexible plan for $1800, you can pick 13 games of your choice for half the price. The marketing for this team is clueless. Its a suckers deal to buy one of these plans. Unless you want the playoff priority I guess.

Until they get a hold of themselves and realize that the secondary market is cheaper 90% of the time, I'll pass.

We always get growlers these days and Weyerbacher - our everyday home beer is great bottled but Dogfish head just seems to consistently blow it away from tap. I think maybe we're trying to like Weyerbacher... we have been trying to visit the brewery all Summer but just have to speed by. We seem to be living out 78 - I'm so not a fan of 78 --

Speaking of which -- I was trying to get to the fact I also tried the Saucony Kutztown lagerbier - it was nothing special on tap :( I'd love to like it. What's the butcher out there in Kutztown just off 78? I love going there... our local butcher just retired. 82 and he thinks he deserves a little time off now. :angry: Mareska's - I cannot believe they're gone now. My husband was seriously considering apprenticing under Emil Mareska. anyhow -- beer and meat -- I digress :P ANYHOW - I want to try more Saucony stuff.

Then Carton's Boat beer was also on tap and that was yawnsville.

Dietrics is the butcher right off the ktown exit. Saucony actually comes out with consistently good stuff. I had the lagerbier it wasn't my taste. It tastes a little too much like kielbasa to me haha. Their schnickelfritz, hop suplex, and maple mistress are all very good. I have the roxies banana and north ramp stout in the door, I've just yet to buy one. I didn't care for the saucony sessions though, a little too fruity for me.

Since carton is just down the road from me I feel like everyone raves about it because its local. You're right the boat beer is middle of the pack, boring beer that's over priced if you ask me. I could name you a handful of better APAs than that.

Anyone ever go to Nik's Wunderbar? Interesting selections on tap.

Here is the beer menu link: http://www.beermenus...nik-s-wunderbar

I live nowhere near there but i looked at the link, and since we're talking about fall beers, I see they have otter creek overgrown and long trail harvest. My old salesman for point pleasant distributors(which was sold) is now the sales rep for long trail/otter creek/wolavers/the shed. He gave me samples last week. Long trail changed all their packaging from the cartoon bears to woodsy artist stuff. They also changed their seasonals. Their spring was absolutely amazing. Ramble, it was made with lemongrass and peppercorns. Just a phenomenally refreshing beer. Their Mostly Cloudy was pretty nasty if you ask me but their Summer Ale was hoppy and refreshing. I love the direction Long Trail is headed in.

Anyway the harvest he gave me was great. I tasted coffee flavors in there and I think it would be great on a cool, hoodie kind of night next to a fire. The new pumpkin was good too but it seems middle of the pack to me. That's not bad, but it doesn't separate itself from the others. DM84 I know you said you don't like imperials where they have strong pumpkin and spice flavors so you might actually like their pumpkin offering. Its not watered down but its not crazy spiced. I couldn't find anything wrong with the brew to be honest.

Otter creek has been trying to change their image also but new packaging doesn't help their below average beer. I had the overgrown and I could not take more than 3 or 4 sips. I like hoppy beers but this was straight up awful. Imagine eating a grapefruit that's been sitting in Lairds all week. That's what Otter Creek Overgrown tastes like.

Saucony Creek is a new brewery too. I'm a little slanted because I went to Kutztown University but they make some awesome beers for a new start up brewery. Although I hated their saucony sessions despite the fact I love sessions. Their fall beer, Maple Mistress is awesome. I mean you can't drink 4 in one sitting because you'll go onto diabetic shock, but its a unique flavor that you won't find in another beer. Its butternut squash, maple syrup, and rum spices. Imagine a pumpkin pie with maple syrup drizzled on top, washed down with beer. It sounds weird but I sincerely suggest that if you see it, you try it. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
