[BEER] The Lacing on This Thread is Breathtaking. Mouthfeel

What is a hop? Is it a short, low jump? Or is it a plant used in the creation of beer?

Beer comes in so many styles and flavor that I have to laugh a little when someone makes a blanket statement like, "I don't like any beer." because that means you just haven't found one you like. I've had beer that tastes like the most delicious cherries and beer that is so bitter it would literally rip your face off.

Everyone has their preference. I'm a big IBU guy but that doesn't mean I don't love a delicious porter.

IPA is the hip style right now but it's also delicious. Citrusy, often high IBU. Pairs great with food.

If you can get a can of Old Chub on Nitro in your area I'd highly recommend it. It's like drinking a delicious beer milkshake.

If you're starting off in the world of craft beer it can be daunting with so many brands and styles. Just grab a few that sound interesting and go to town until you find some you like.

Some beer styles

IPA
Kolsch
Witbier
Porter
Stout
Barley Wine
Cream Ale
Bock
Dunkelweizen
Lambic
Pilsner
Hefeweizen

And more!

For @Rorshach Kringle

There's also just 40oz of malt liquor... In plastic bottles....if that's your thing.

    I had a beer last night. It was tasty and someone else paid for it.

    I bought a six pack of Lancaster (Pennsylvania) Brewing Company Something something Hop Buggy, and a four pack of Lancaster Brewing Company Something Hop Hog Southern Cross.

    Both are very good. The first one is a wheat beer, I think. The Hop Hog is a double IPA.

    You can now beer at some gas stations in PA, which is really nice and convenient.

    I'm glad that porters and stouts are not the in thing because it prevents every company from making an average (though perfectly serviceable) brew.

    It is rather annoying when the only thing on the menu is a Guinness though.

    Beer problems.

    Guinness is like water. I'm always amazed how they pour this dark full looking beer, then you drink it and it's basically water.

    Somebody has to be the gateway to dark beers.

    My little town did alright! Jack Pine won a bronze for their Jalapeño cream ale and our new brewery won a bronze in the rye division.

    Overall Minnesota did not have a good year though.

    Stone is laying off 5% of it's workforce (approx 75 jobs).

    I find it little disconcerting to have them planning hotels/opening new facilities and then wheeling around and axing staff.

    Not really a fan of hops, but I'll happily drunk stuff from the lighter end of beers and also all the dark beers.

    Mostly I've just been on a cider kick for the last few years though. Downeast cider is pretty good!

    I have finally come to the conclusion that I don't like ales. I used to think it was IPAs, but really it's all ales. I'll stick to lagers and stouts from now on. I'm getting to old to try new shit and there's plenty of choices among lagers.

    The Lancaster brewing company hop buggy is an Amish grain amber ale. "Amish grown oats, wheat and rye from Lancaster county give our hopped up amber ale righteous malt body, while buggy loads of hops deliver an over the top hop character."

    I can once again confirm that if you leave your growler alone for over a week, you should be in the clear if the seal was never cracked and you have no air in the container. This was 10 full days from fill to first taste and it's still all good.

    On second thought, it's an IPA from Pfriem so 'all good' is putting it mildly.

    There is a microbrewery in town that makes seasonal beers, and starting in November they've got this cranberry sour that is just the best beer ever. Usually I just drink Stella, but this shit changed my life when I tried it. Next time I go to the pub I'll get more info on it in case it's actually a thing you can order at Total Wine or BevMo or whatever.

    I gotta move further out from the CBD so I have space for that.

    Carrot cake brown transferred in my keg. And brewing an imperial red I think Sunday to fill my new second keg.

    And then next Saturday I'm pouring beers for Dry Dock's 11th anniversary party.

    Rogue has their own cooper, and their master distiller was pulling samples of their rye and dead guy whiskies from the casks for us. I have dined on honeydew, and drunk the milk of paradise.
