Been away from beers for two weeks, back now and no beer general to be seen! WTF!

Drinking, buying, cellaring or just wanting to try out?

I had this one after dinner today, bought 2 bottles this time last year, had one then and thought it was slightly harsh, opened the other bottle tonight and it did seem smoother. Probably just my palate that has changed though. Great beer no matter what!

I know nothing about storing beer but 1 year sound like it's enough to take off some harshness doesn't it? Some only cellar their beers for 6 months even.

Some really harsh alcoholic beers might need more than that to settle down, but yeah most of them should not need more than 12 months of cellar time. I drink most of what i get fresh these days even, works nice enough for most beers.

Holba is a nice beer for the price! Do try the Praga as well, nothing fancy just plain good.

Followed the pils up with a locally produced west coast style ipa. Very dry, quite nice as it was fairly fresh though!

Had a Barrel Aged B.O.R.I.S. last night. The bourbon flavors were all there in full force, surprisingly so were the hops. It was pretty sharp.

Went out on a staff christmas party this week. Really not my scene, and in a chain pub that is known for its low quality food and questionable clientele.

Soon cheered up when I discovered they had these, as well as some other very respectable craft beer selections. The red one was nice, but the blue was excellent. Didnt try the gold.

I didnt really get the opportunity to savour them and think about it the flavour too much. From what I recall, for me the drinks I've tried from Rochefort, Westmalle and Westvleteren are better - even so, I'd still say Chimay is excellent (i just happen to think the other are even more excellent)
>>
>>7160996
I have yet to try any Chimay beer. In america the blue is like 12$ for a bomber and I don't like dropping that much on one bottle of beer anymore. Maybe I'll just ask for a bottle for christmas from someone
>>
>>7161017
>bomber

I dont know what size that is?

For 330ml bottles: I paid £4 for the red ($6) and the blue was paid for by the company. I could pick up Chimay Blue for about £3.20 ($4.85) and red for £2.50 ($3.80) online, and perhaps a little more if I went to a local beer shop.

This chain of pubs is well known for being cheap and cheerful. They serve alcohol all day I believe which attracts the alcoholics, and a pint of English ale is about £2-£2.50, where as in most other pubs its £3-£3.50. So it was a suprise to see them offering craft beer. They also had quite a few others such as Lagunitas, Sixpoint and Brooklyn Lager. Hopefully it will lead to more places following suit.
>>
>>7161038
a bomber is 650 ml

Most good beer in america is sold as either 6 or 4 packs of 355 mL bottles, or single 650 mL bottles (cheap beer in mostly 24 or 30 packs of 355mL cans)
>>
>>7161040

Beer is sold quite differently in UK.

Macros are normally sold cans or bottles. This could be in packs of 4/6/8/12/16/20/24. Typically the bottles are 330ml and the cans are 440ml, but also 568ml cans because Brits like a pint. Single bottles also come in 660ml.

Beers that would be described as English Ale (most people here would call it 'real ale') are normally sold as individual bottles, typically of 500ml. However, supermarkets (and a lot of beer shops) almost always have offers on these such as any 4 for £5 (the bottles cost £1-£2 each individually) which is good because it allows you to mix it up.

Supermarkets dont really stock craft beers. They are still quite expensive and typically start from about £2 for a 330ml bottle, and sold individually.

tonight i'll be knocking back a six-pack of these with cheese curds and apple slices. pretty nice flavor, not too bitter, thankfully.

This thread reminds me of wealthier times and better brews though.

Fuck Im drinking again tonight. But let me ask: I am stupidly paranoid about what I put in my body. And is it bad to drink beer with a lot of hops? Its an American Ale to be precise, so more hops than normal, but I just like the taste. Will drinking like 5-6 beers hurt me, or no?
>>
>>7161063
despite the talk of it being expensive, craft beer can be quite affordable in america, plenty of great beers are sold in 6 packs for $7-$9 (and sometimes 12 or 24 packs at a per bottle discount for the bigger craft brewers)

Now compared to a $15 30 pack of High Life or PBR its expensive, but its quite cheap compared to parts of europe I have been in

>>7161071
>And is it bad to drink beer with a lot of hops
No, light beers are the worst for you per calorie as they have no other nutrients. Good beer often has yeast as its usually not filtered and bottle conditioned and typically has a lot more nutritional value
>>
>>7161097
I really like mint milkshakes/ice cream, and like mint/chocolate flavored things so I gave it a try

It smells like mouthwash so I was a little turned off at first, but it tastes pretty good
>>
>>7161079

Yeah I can pick up pretty much any macro beer for around £0.50 per 440ml can right now, if I buy two crates of it. Unfortunately not for craft beer. My dad ran a craft beer bar for quite a while which was really good, and how I got in to it. I think he had to move on from that job though since he has a problem with taking things that he hasnt payed for.
>>
>>7161086

i dont know man. i dont know shit. i guess it just tastes kinda bitter, ina good way, but it makes me think if it tastes bitter than it mnight be bad in large quantities. i mean that's a lot of hops going in your body at one time,.

Jesus. Selection-wise Canada's not that great, but we pay a lot less for good European beers. Chimay Blue works out to $2.70 USD for a 330mL bottle, and the Red is about 5 bucks for a 750mL bottle.

Well 2bh i did read that there was a study linking large consumption (i'm talking over years) of hoppy beers to estrogen increase. But honestly, that's if you drink like a 6 pack of hoppy beer once every week for 2-3 years.

i.e. don't over do it with the hops, but it's completely fine to drink it.

Sure, in very small amounts, but there is literally zero evidence to suggest that dietary intake of hops effects blood estrogen levels in any way

Its not particularly effervescent, I poured if fairly vigorously and had a couple cm of head, nice color
Pretty typical carbonation level for a beer with that high of an ABV

>>7164298
What temperature was it at? With those high abv beers I chill them in the fridge for maybe an hour so I can still get a decent head.

>>7164366
it was fridge temp (minus the fucking 10 minutes it took me to remove the wax)

Yeah I just shoot for around 50 degrees Fahrenheit now. The lack of head always bothered me and the amount of flavor lost at the colder temps was surprisingly a lot.
Give it a try if you care. If not that's fine too. Just a suggestion. Enjoy the beer brah

As far as American beer goes, its kind of all that is available - at a UK supermarket at least, could probably get something different if I went to a specialist beer shop, but I'd also pay a lot more.
They had Samuel Adams Lager, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and Torpedo. That was about the extent of the American beers.

>They had Samuel Adams Lager, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and Torpedo. That was about the extent of the American beers.

If this and the shitty macrobrew lagers like Budweiser and Coors are the only American beers most people in Europe are exposed to, no wonder they have this false idea that all American beer is awful.
>>
>>7166203
Then you made a good choice. I don't even care for SN pale ale. Torpedo is solid though

What? I didn't even know that was a thing. My state has liquor stores close at 9pm all seven days, but this limitation is just because the Tavern League is one of the strongest lobbies in the state so they literally write laws to encourage you to go to a bar (maybe thats part why we have the highest drunk driving rates)
>>
>>7166529
Same. My state is finally changing that though. They started allowing growler sales on Sunday and now I think they are going to let the liquor stores actually be open on sunday. Starting sometime next year that is.
>>
>>7166522
Large supermarkets close at 4pm in UK because of some archaic law.

I could get beer if I wanted it, but it would be shit beer, and I dont really want to drink shit beer. I dont really have any good 'liquor' shops around here that would stock anything other than macro beer.

oh, thats too bad. I guess I am spoiled being able to get good beer in any grocery store/gas station/liquor store as long as I go before 9pm

They're currently way underrated and it doesn't help that they're in a really dense area for beer (Southern California). I was drinking some Black House earlier, never had a chance to try the Mega Black House yet. :c Funnily enough, I've never had Lomaland (or a saison for that matter).

It's so juicy with a touch of funk from the Brett. So fucking good, wish they bottled that one. Did you join their League? I would have but I had already threw $150 to split a Reserve Society membership. Next year!

>>7164270
yeah that shit is refreshing...it would probably be good on a hot day I'm sure

i bought this in a 4 or 6 pack of cans and i think i remember not liking it. Mind you, I like cans. I'm not the beer drinker type that thinks bottles are the only way to go.

Dude you'd be surprised. Europeans are actually asking for more and more american beers lately. I couldn't believe it either. I heard this German beer master talking about how germans are sick of all their beer rules they've had to follow in the past 300 years or so and that they actually enjoy a lot our weird experimental beers we've been making like especially our IPAs. I was astonished to hear this because forever all I ever heard from Europeans is how much better their shit is and how much american beer sucks but i guess everything changes eventually.

Own up, your Christmas party was in Wetherspoons wasn't it?

Their beer selection is great to be fair, despite its reputation

I wish I did, I had enough money but it's a bit of a drive from the Inland Empire for the bottle releases. Definitely next year since I saw all the cool stuff the League members get.

How is it? I considered it because it's decently close and I feel like I would much rather be a part of that than the Hangar 24 Barrel Roll one. Especially since I really want to try Chocolate Rain again.

I can't say since it's my first year joining. I've been a longtime fan of The Bruery (by that I mean only 3 years lol) but never had the scratch and means of driving from SD to Placentia until now. I started with Preservation Society, and already got access to some good stuff. (Two Black Tuesdays, Confession, Oude tart with Boysenberries, and other experimental batches) So I'm really looking forward to next month when my RS membership kicks in.

Hanger 24 makes some good stuff. Highlights for me are Pugachev's Cobra and Chandelle.

Reserve Society is awesome if you can afford the $300/year

Bruery releases a LOT of great beer every year and admittedly quite a few stinkers... but except for the ~10 included bottles you get to choose what you buy, and you can pick up at your convenience

Damn, that does sound good.

>>7171858
Mad jealous, haven't had a chance to try it. :^(

>>7171862
I can, it's just that by the time I had decided that I had wanted to there weren't any spots left.
:^(
>>
>>7171776
Yeah. I thought I already mentioned it in this thread, but perhaps in a different thread. I would never go to Wetherspoons given the choice. Im somewhat of a snob.

Food was shit, as expected. But very impressed that they had so many beers, and reasonably priced.

yeah, you pretty much have to sign up for Preservation society in order to get access to Reserve society nowadays (Preservation members get the chance to sign up for Reserve before the general public).

You can sign up for Preservation at the last possible quarter though... in past years there hasn't beenany preference given to people who have been in Preservation longer if that makes sense
