This cucumber beer is way better. Kewl Hand Cuke by Wingman (local brewery.)

Pretty tasty, more natural cucumber flavor. Has Brett as well, but I'm barely tasting that.

i had one pf those sam adams cukumber coriander beers a few weeks ago and it was pretty good.

i got made fun of by one of my dads miserable friends while i was drinking it because hes a real man and im not.

apparently real men drink twisted tea.

Is it okay to leave my equipment in sanitizer over night?

I say this because I had something come up mid boil and had to drop everything. but I havent made wort yet so I pretty much just boiled water. I dont want to waste the sanitizer so I'm thinking of letting it sit overnight. thoughts?

I have no idea actually.

Haven't brewed in awhile.

But we little know until tried how much of the uncontrollable there is in us, urging across glaciers and torrents, and up dangerous heights, let the judgment forbid as it may.

It's not bad.

Also, the Sam Adams Nitro White Ale is tasty

Love me nitro beers

I'm going to assume its okay. I'm going to rinse off the equipment anyways so I dont think taste should be affected

right?

I'm not a beer drinker but I found a beer at a local brewery about 3 years ago that I actually liked, but sadly it was never cycled back through their production.

Until now

idk anything about beer but it's almost molasses-y and has a bitter, tea-like aftertaste. It's also pretty viscous.



I'm happy though

I thought it tasted like asshole. But not as bad as Guinness Nitro IPA.

Ballast Point has a Nitro Amber at their brewery that I want to try. The brewery is a 10 minute drive from my house. Just went for the first time on Saturday. I don't remember who was saying that Ballast Point is all just IPAs, but if you go to their brewery, they have soooo many beers that they don't distribute or only distribute locally. They had like 8 stouts/porters 5 or 6 ambers, a saison or two, obviously a bunch of IPAs and Pale ales. So much stuff. Just checked the website. They have 37 beers in their taproom.

Did you go to the production brewery or the trial brewery? The trial brewery was pretty cool as it was more sort of the size of equipment that I use at work. They wouldn't let me have a proper nosy at all their equipment though which was a bit shitty.

Yeah, I've been on their site and seen all they offer and it makes me p jealous tbh. Out here in CO we get mostly their IPAs and a handful of other kinds, but nothing close to what they offer.

The Guinness Nitro left a lot on the table for me. They could have done a lot more with it, but ended up with Maalox w/ alcohol content.

I'll edit this when I get home. I had 2 from Short's in Michigan worth adding commentary about.

Thai chili wahoo sounds interesting. I'd give that a shot.

Picked up a simple 6 pack, Lucky 13 by Lagunitas.

Had the Red from No-Li a couple nights ago at a bar, it was very good. Great malt flavors.

Hoppier than I'd like.

Not enough malt flavor for a red.

Unfortunately, this is the conclusion for most of the reds that I try these days. The IBU keeps increasing

Yeah but it's 8%. I think of it more like a red IPA.
My favorite malty red is still probably Red Trolley by Karl Strauss.

Yeah the 8.8% is pretty nice lol

Don't get me wrong, it's definitely drinkable. I was just envisioning something else.

Yeah, when I bought it I was expecting maltyness as well, but once I realized I wasn't getting that I really liked it. I do prefer malty reds though. like, not every beer has to just be a hopfest

Sounds interesting. I just had Watermelon Dorado recently and didn't like it at all, but that's been the first Ballast Point beer I've straight up not liked.

I recently went to a store in upstate NY with an excellent beer selection and left with Off Color Scurry (very good!), Prairie Tulsa Rugby Ale (very good as well!), Prairie Bomb (saving for a friend, but I'll probably get a taste), Dogfish Head 120 min, Singlecut Does Anybody Remember Laughter, Evil Twin Donut Break, and the aforementioned Dorado. I stop at this place every time I'm in the area and usually spend quite a bit each time. Worth it.

As I sit here sipping a glass of Oliva Quadrupel I can't help but admire the complexity of this brew. I seriously pick up different flavors with every sip. Dark fruits, fig, cocoa, cherries, a bit of hop, some muted citrus and belgian yeast. Delicious!

Drinking Green Flash's Cosmic Ristretto.

Labeled as a Baltic Porter with Espresso.

It has a sharp espresso flavor to it. The kind that you taste in your nose after a sip. There's a sweetness and maltiness in the background but the main flavor is ass kicking espresso. I'm drinking it by itself right now, but it's a beer that I think would probably pair really well with a rich dessert. Basically any dessert you would usually drink coffee with, you could probably sub in this beer and it would be great. A lot better than a lot of other coffee stouts I've had and a nice change of pace for Green Flash.

glad I spotted this thread, I used to lament the fact that Australia is light on quality beer and certainly had limited opportunities to try the European and American brews that were always being discussed here.

but I'm in the UK the moment and have been absolutely ploughing through the real ales, anything I should keep an eye out for? I'll be traveling all over so any recommendations go, love the local pubs with a few local cask brews.

So my Irish roommate had 4 friend from Ireland stay with us over the last week and we went to a beer fest Saturday afternoon. Tried about 20 beers I would say. The Irish absolutely fucking HATED almost every beer we tried. They said IPAs all taste like bog water and ended up liking maybe 3 beers out of the 20. Then when we were drinking after they got bud light cran-ber-ritas. So much for the legendary drinking ability of the Irish.
