Nothing tonight, I'm sick. Went up and visited pic related and Bent Paddle over the weekend though.
Thirsty Pagan had 2 sours I actually liked. One was aged in tequila barrels briefly, the other was some kettle red barrel aged thing that was even better. Didn't try the last sour because I had to drive and also had a couple of their standard beers.
Bent paddle has their cold press black ale on nitro and it's incredible. They also had a blueberry infused blonde that was even better.

question to anyone in the know about alcohol-related cirrhosis/liver damage:

is there a significant difference in the effects on the liver done by a 5% beer and a 4% beer?

it would seem like there shouldn't be, considering they're both still minuscule %'s of the beer consumed, yet there is also a noticeable difference in the inebriating effects of both

I am drinking this right now.

I wish I had a better picture but I don't, these guys, Transmitter, are still pretty small and I don't think you can even get their beer outside of NY or MAYBE CT, but they supply the place I work at and I am fairly certain they had a sales rep/brewer here one time giving out samples.

Anyway, the beer is pretty good, but a bit different from what I was expecting. I don't imagine many of you are into pu'erh tea, but this beer taste exactly like aged pu'erh tea, in beer form of course.

Earthy, hay, forest floor, barns, but also some peppery spice and also some frutiness in the way of maybe apricots or peaches or something.

Weird.

No, I love saisons, I also love sour beers, and I also love brett beers, and I have had a lot of them, this beer is unique in how much it tastes like the last pu'erh I was drinking. It also has a sort of smokey, bitter taste, which the last pu'erh I ha tasted like.

This falls in my favorite style of beer, I think I know what they generally taste like and when one of them taste slightly or a lot different.

I can't find a beer I like. Every beer just tastes somewhere between 'kinda bad' and 'awful' to me.
Only once did I ever enjoy a beer, and that was about 6 years ago. It had a strong wheaty flavor and maybe some nuts, but I can't remember the name at all.
I've tried various "wheat beers" but none of them came close. Can someone recommend me a beer I might like? For the record I find IPAs disgusting and belgian ale to be not that bad.

Why do people act like IPAs don't completely wreck your taste of anyhting but the IPA
>>
>>7239629

Well, wings are generally strongly seasoned so it seems like a pretty good match to me. If your beer is too "mild" then you have the exact same problem in reverse--the hot sauce on the wings would totally drown out the beer.
>>
Local place today for me lads. It's called Route 30 in Riverside, CA. It opened last Friday I think. They only have four beers so far but their pale ale is decent. I'm like 99% sure their cream stout is infected with something because it tastes like a cherry sour and not in a good sense. I feel sick.
>>
>>7239644
Agreed. I find that pale ales and IPAs go well with spicy Hispanic or Asian food.

You need to match your food/drink pairings. If you're eating spicy food then a strong beer will pair better.

I'm drinking Dirt Wolf tonight. It's a great double IPA (It's got more more pine flavor than fruit flavor, in my opinion) and I managed to buy some that was only bottled 3 weeks ago. I'd eat wings with it if I had them.

Didn't realize how sketchy the picture was until uploading. Oh well.

It's good, but I don't love it as much as I probably should love a, "special," beer like this. First sips were probably too cold, and it mostly just tasted of soy and spice. The pumpkin is nice and present -- and aromatic -- now that I've let it come up a bit. Still just a little too sweet for me, without anything roasty or savory to balance it out.

Good, just not great. I feel like it's supposed to be great.

Yeah, we have something called a World of Beer, and something called an Ale House, and a hotel down the street that talks about having 20-something taps.

Yet the locally-owned, not-very-classy video game bar that is literally just an empty store front someone bought and put a bunch of video games in to has the best beer selection by far.

Backwoods Bastard is incredible. I've only had it on draft, but it was completely incomparable to Dirty Bastard which is supposedly its base.

Here are a few beers I've loved recently:

Stone - Double Bastard
Cigar City Brewing - Jai Alai (tastes like half fruit juice and half ipa if you get it fresh)
Victory - Hop Devil
Ballast Point - The Commodore
Troegs - Nugget Nectar (Haven't had it recently, it's seasonal)
Bierbrouwerij De Koningshoeven - La Trappe Quad
Dogfish Head - Indian Brown Ale

Last night I had two beers from 21st Amendment Brewery. They were both called He Said, and they were both pumpkin beers. One was a tripel and the other was a baltic porter. The tripel was ok but the porter was the first beer I've ever poured down the drain, and I'm fine with Steel Reserve.

Not who you're asking but Gulden Draak is solid. It's expensive though.

>>7243513
Have you tried any Trappist beers? It looks comparable to some of them.
>>
>>7243517
Yeah, it's Belgian. It's not gonna be like a Belgian Quad but it'll be similar.
>>
My first bottle of the brand new Sierra Nevada Otra Vez is pretty delicious. I wonder how it will hold up as I drink more of them but my first impression is positive. It makes my mouth water like crazy with the salt and slight sour taste. I got a 6-pack of this and the Tropical IPA today so it will be a Sierra Nevada-heavy weekend.

That's a shame. I had considered buying this one but it sounded so strange that I skipped it. Looks like that was the right choice.

I honestly don't understand the ratings it gets. Nothing spectacular, but it's rated as a solid beer. Did I get a bad batch? It actually tasted bad, not just not good. Like I said, I'm down with PBR, Steel Reserve, Mickey's, all sorts of mediocre beer, but this beer was off the charts terrible.

Had this tonight. It was weird as fuck.

I can usually sort beer as unpleasant, good, or forgettable. This didn't really fit as any. It wasn't bad, but I'll probably never drink it again, yet it also was very fucking memorable.

It was just so fruity. Not in the way a good wheat beer should be, more like a Tropicana juice blend. My mouth tastes like I just had something to drink with breakfast.

Just so fucking weird. And not at all what I picture when I think of winter flavors.

I dunno, I'm all for putting my nose up at the ignorant masses but if beer is rated well and tastes outright bad you probably a bad batch.

It's weird because most of the Hop Devil that they do put out is relatively fresh (less than a month) so I don't get what the deal is. Do tell how the Tropical IPA is, it sounds like that Jai Alai mentioned before.

PBR and Lone Star and Stella and Heineken and Kirin and Sapporo and Yuengling and etc are maybe possibly arguably a slight minor step up from budweiser et al but the difference is extremely minor. The main asset they all have is excellent quality control and extreme precision, so you know exactly what you'll get. By contrast, some small-scale local breweries can produce legitimately undrinkable beer from time to time.

>Do tell how the Tropical IPA is, it sounds like that Jai Alai mentioned before.
The Sierra Nevada Tropical IPA was not what I expected. The average DIPA I've had tasted "fruitier" and what the Tropical IPA really smelled and tasted like was weed. As soon as I opened it it smelled almost like someone was smoking a bowl in the next room. It's pretty dark for an IPA too and it wasn't bad but the weed scent/taste was a surprise. I'll drink more of them and have a clearer idea of it.

I bought a 4-pack of Higher Math and a 4-pack of Fort when they were available in Delaware a few months ago. Fort was amazing and worth the price (you can only feasibly drink one in a sitting anyway) while the Higher Math was a little bit too much for me. HM was good but so rich and strong that I'd only enjoy it in specific situations. I bought another pack of HM though to age for at least a year since it will be better if it mellows and I think that it will. HM is also a one-time-only thing while Fort has been brewed before and will come back so you'll have more chances to try it.

It's good for a cheap beer, but if you're paying anymore for PBR than say Natty Light, it's probably not worth it.

I totally believe it's possible it was a bad batch. For example: I once had the Organic Chocolate Stout from Samuel Smith. It tasted like ass. But I have no reason to doubt ratebeer and other reviewers when they rave about it. The bottle was bad plain and simple.

Had a lot of good beer recently.

I kind of went super heavy on the IPAs but I do love the style.

I had Victory Hop Ranch which I love and definitely recommend. It is very tropical and wet tasting, and the pilsner malt works great.

I had the Stone/Sierra Nevada colab NXS, which was surprisingly normal tasting with very minimal barrel character.

Then I had Sierra Nevada's Neomexicanus IPA which had very interesting mint and melon notes.

I also had both Sierra Nevada's new beers, Otra Vez and Tropical IPA. Both are good, though they should have called tropical IPA the DANK IPA because it literally smells like weed. Otra Vez is a good, unique gose, so easy to drink.

I also had Alpine Nelson which I had been waiting to try for a while, and it definitely showcases that tropical fruit and cat piss character of the Nelson Sauvin hop. The rye also gives it a nice, spicy character as well.

Sam Smith's Oatmeal Stout is really nice. Low-ish ABV and it tastes really darn good to boot. Another good one is Oatis from Ninkasi, it's criminally underrated and there's a vanilla version of it that's just as good.

Been going through the Crooked Stave beers lately. This one is breddy gud.
They are all pretty amazing, so far.

>>7244497
About $10 per bottle where I am.
Tastes like chocolate-cherry cake. Not my thing, but I think they nailed their attempt. No alcohol "punch" that I was expecting at 18 ABV.
Good idea to age one.
HM is 18%, Fort is 17% iirc.

Ballast can almost do no wrong. About to be bought out if they haven't been already. Not a milk stout fan, but Calm Before the Storm is delicious.

The Mrs is having the one on the left. Definitely a great dessert beer though it's a bit sweet for me. I'm having the oatmeal stout, more up my alley. Nice roastiness, super drinkable.

>>7251790
IIRC, they've been bought out already. 1 billion dollars. Not that it's a problem, if anything the buy out might mean more beer distributed so everyone can enjoy it. Calm is definitely good, looks like a blonde drinks like a coffee stout. My personal favorite is their VaS, then again I think most people like that one a lot too.

The Duet isn't a 22, it's a 12. It's definitely good. Kind of wish I had gotten just a 6 pack of that instead!
>>
>>7251823
Victory at Sea isn't my cup of tea
but the sculpins are on point, imo
so I'm sure the VaS is good, just not to my liking.
> if anything the buy out might mean more beer distributed so everyone can enjoy it.
you sound like a salesman, lol, but I agree. people get upset (where I am) when a local place gets bought out. but really, it just means more stringent regulation.

I've just seen the Duet in 22z, and it's a shelf turd. Most of our 22z are shelf turds.

Had my first Jai Alai yesterday, at a wedding from a keg. Surprising, since I'm like 30 minutes from their brewery, but I'm not an IPA person.

I could be if they were all this good. Still wouldn't ever pick it over most other common varieties, but it was the first IPA I've ever had where I wanted more.

Also had a Longboard from the bottle. It was just a little less plain than beer could possibly be. Slightly maltier than the typical pale lager, which made it slightly better than 100% forgettable.

I like beer, but I find hard liquors and wine to taste like shit.

Acquiring a taste for beer didn't take long. I don't like them all but I find barky Ales and Light Lagers to be my preferred area.

How do I acquire a taste for liquors and mixed drinks? I can't seem to make out taste past "wow it taste like how I imagine automobile fuel tastes, this taste like the most efficient way to become drunk without bothering to make it enjoyable to drink"

I only find them good as a way to get drunk in shots. Every thing from mixed drinks to jello shots feels like an attempt at disguising the fact that what you are drinking taste like diesel fuel.

Got some beer i had ordered before new years today. Just had to have a few of them!

This one i have tried to get my hands on for a long time, finally got it and i love it! Sadly one of the three bottles i got was only half filled, probably gone bad due to this fact.
Still this beer is probably the best coffee imperial stout i have ever had!

Was it creamy? Looks a bit thin.

Drinking this right now. SO GOOD. Very fruity, best American Pale Ale I've had in a long time.

Not super creamy as an milk stout or so, but you could feel you where drinking a big beer still.

Followed it up with this frankenstein of a beer.

Same beer, rear label. Real dense mixture of stuff in this one, still it manages to just take the best out of all the stuff as it is quite tasty!

You could either drink them or try to trade them with people that cannot get them at all.

I vote to drink them!

Yuengling traditional lager is really fucking good for cheap beer. It doesn't taste like cheap beer at all, at least to me.

How'd it turn out? be honest
Looks delicious.

That's some nice color.

I did a beet beer one time and by the time it was ready to drink all the color was gone.

I love Hop Devil. It's one of my favorite go-to beers. I agree that it's a more weedy flavor than the juicy flavor that other IPA's can have. Hop Devil is malty for an IPA.

So that's Milkshake. I live near Tired Hands and I've heard talk of Milkshake but I haven't actually tried it. The beers I have had there were delicious but I find the limited releases and super-low supply annoying.

It looks pretty red to me, anon. A black raspberry is a blackberry, anyway.

>go to my local beer store (if anyone lives in RVA, Corks and Kegs)
>get a 20 dollar mix and match 12 pack
>somehow I drank it all last night
>only good beers were The Public from DC Brau and Vital IPA from Victory
One of the beers was Prima Pils from Victory. It smelled incredible but I'm convinced that even the best pilsners taste like budweiser with extra hops.

also breckenridge brewery is trash

black raspberries are just a very dark purplish red
when the pigment dilutes it's going to turn a lighter red
also there's a significant difference between a blackberry and a black raspberry, m8
enough for a pleb to be able to tell
blackberry is on the right

Buddy of mine got a six pack of this stuff and gave me half. Gonna be drinking it later. Has anyone had it before? I'm not sure I'll be a fan.

It turned out fairly well. Used wyeast debom which isn't the best. I wouldn't use it again.

Why do so many "homebrewers" use kits?

>throw contents of package into a bucket
>top up with water
>wait a few weeks
>you now have a shitty generic imitation beer

It's like fixing up a pot noodle and pretending you're Jamie Oliver. What's the point?
>>
>>7272382
Same reason why so many home cooks use shit like salad and stew kits and hamburger helper and shit like that. They like the illusion of "making it from scratch" but can't be bothered to actually put in the effort to prepare everything themselves.

I spent 5-7:30 nursing down a Dark and Stormy. First time I had a ginger beer. It was fucking delicious. I should have bought two though, because I had more rum than ginger beer, so I had to nurse the rum for a bit. Blackheart rum, for those who care. It was an okay rum, but the ginger beer stole the stage.

Not sure what I'm gonna drink next. I have some local bourbon, some Wild Turkey Forgiven, and some Nip whiskey.

Anyone here have any good homebrewing resources?
Kinda want to try it
How difficult/time-intensive/expensive is it?

Nothing too fancy tonight. Enjoying a 2014 Narwhal. The mild hop bitterness and coffee flavors have really mellowed out with 16 months in the closet. Quite good m8s

I would imagine most of the spices have faded a bit since it's a pumpkin beer and likely fairly old. It's ok, Magic Hat is pretty meh overall but you might like it if you enjoy vegetable/spiced brews. Cheers

The equipment required for making beer "from scratch" is a bit too much for entry level brewers. Kits are a way to find out if you find brewing fun, and if you do then you can invest in more equipment. Been brewing for a bit over a year and I brew all-grain. But would never recommend theat to someone doing their first brew. Get off your high horse asshat

>>7234113
Vodka. That's a guarantee.

>>7272454
You have unlimited resources online so just knock yourself out!

It's a little bit time consuming, but not more then any other hobby. If you drink a lot then you could maybe save some money, but don't let that be the main reason you go into it because you're gonna be disappointed. Try it out, you might like it.

>>7274070
kit beer is really gross though.. gross enough to turn most people off the whole thing

the best thing to do is to find a place where you can use their equipment and if you enjoy it you can start to buy your own

you'll learn a lot that way also
