Who did you e-mail with? I promise you they are because it came right off of a training item
they give to servers to be able to talk intelligently about the beer. I'm just outside of
Downtown to the W...

No problem. I like it a lot too. A better Fat Tire in my opinion.

There's actually no potato in Finnegans any longer. It started off with a nominal amount for

When it came time to bottle, I took a bottle Jameson and (thinking of the greater good) boiled
it for 25 m...

I'm fascinated by this thread. If we were looking to increase the whiskey taste without
increasing the ABV, couldn't we take more Jameson, boil off some of the alcohol and pitch more

It took me 12 batches, but I've finally had my first UABE (Urgent Attention Brewing Event) as
my IIPA suddenly became a very active fermenter about 15 hours in. I had a foam-filled airlock,
