  • Back before Al Gore invented the internet, I was a college student with a taste for good beer but on a student's budget. On the beer bulletin boards (forums before there was an internet) there was talk about radical folk who MADE their own beer! I crudely copied their arts until I got married (w/kids) when life got too hectic to brew. After the entity formerly known as wife declared her intentions to dissolve our union, I found myself back in an apartment not unlike the one I had in my college days. My course of action was clear...

    That's completely insane and totally awesome! I may do a dozen tomorrow and pickle them.

    Got mine a couple days ago. Got to love a free beer glass. I'll probably give it my buddy so
    he'll have a set. He's a Stella fan more than me anyway.

    First time I tried it, I hated it. Second time around I found it quite good (this is why I
    always try a beer a couple times before passing judgement on it). Yeah, it's a big beer that
    will get you wre...

    Didn't know it was out until I saw at the grocery store yesterday. Great beer. I'm not a fan of
    Terrapin rye ale, but the rye flavors worked out much better in the bigger IPA. This beer will
    be a regu...

    Mozart - brewing is a cerebral art after all. ;) Seriously though, Mozart. It makes your beer

    Let it age and forget about it...Wine that is 13-14.8 percent alcohol does not at all taste
    good when it is fresh...Let it be...Forget about it.Let the natural process of oxidizing the
    strong ale take...

    I tried the blonde barley wine yesterday and didn't care for it. This does not means it's not a
    good beer, I just don't like strong malty beers without a good dose of hops (or roasted malts)
    to bring ...

    My local grocery has been selling it for $13 a 12 pack. I've been downing a bit much of it
    lately. This needs to be a regular brew and not a seasonal. I'm a bit surprised they made the
    Torpedo a regul...
