*sigh*

Early clues should be clues to get our beer-knowledge-gears turning.

Later clues, after it's apparent people have no idea, can be puns.


Example of what not to do:

Quote:
[Insert photo of a delicious looking pilsner]

Clue: Asprin, ibuprofen, viagra..... pills (pils.) *snicker* GET IT?!
Friends don't let friends post crappy clues.

Juuuu talkin to me? Come on, it's a milk stout. Hint - It's got lactose and roasted barley. Eventually these are going to get kind of repetitive if you don't change up the clues.

Well it's really not hard to give them a little twist:

"One of the ingredients creates a brown head."

"This style is an off-shoot of a style developed in the UK"

"One of the ingredients is unfermentable"


You should be using your brewing knowledge to test ours.

The fact its a dark beer means that regardless of the clues everyone will take turns guessing dark styles and there's really only what, 10-12 of them? Unless its a coconut-lychee-guava stout, which is what ill post next

You better not

I had a coconut rum-barrel tropical stout for one of my things, but I neither hinted at nor required any of that except "tropical stout".

Fiiiiine.

Okay, so since I've exhausted all of my pint photos and I'm not cracking one of my last barleywines to take a photo (but I will the next time I crack one open) here's a little fun to switch it up.

Before gelatin




After gelatin




The hint involves the photos. You'd expect this brew to be hazy at first and should give it time to clear up... but I was having none of that business and used gelatin
