Posted in thread: What do you dislike about summer? on 05-27-2013 at 05:15 PM
As another Minnesotan, summers are such a precious commodity. Beer-wise, I tend to dislike the
summer ales; fruity wheat or Belgian beers, any beer with lemon zest, etc. Pilsner Urquel, or
any good he...
Posted in thread: Most over rated craft beers on 05-18-2013 at 05:03 PM
IMO, many of the beers that skirt the line between mass appeal and still cling to the 'craft'
terminology are overrated because much of the hype happened due to being a bit of a sellout.
Many summer w...
