    Trying to continue my tradition of tasting at least one local beer from cities I have to visit
    as part of my work/travel. Will be in Calgary in August, and was wondering if there are
    breweries or brew...

    +1 for 21st Amendment I also like the Moose Drool Brown Ale in cans.

  • Posted in thread: Are you fit or fat? on 06-04-2012 at 07:15 PM
    Partly fit. Love beer, alcohol and good food in general; bit old and lazy to bring myself to
    10-15% levels of body fat. But I do run regularly, and will start going back to the gym soon.
    Just ran the ...

    My wife and I are headed to the Land of Oz for two weeks in June and I'm looking for some
    breweries/brewpubs to visit downtown Sydney and in the Cairns area. We won't have a car, but
    we're fans of pub...

    Will be driving up to Merced, CA for some work next week. There doesn't seem to be much in the
    city. But I will be passing through Fresno, and stopping there to meet a friend. Does anyone
    know of any ...

    Hi everyone. I'm in China having a hard time with internet but will be able to check this
    thread occasionally while I'm here. I'm traveling this Wednesday to Brisbane Australia and

  • Posted in thread: PSA: Responding to bottling issues with "you should keg" on 04-24-2012 at 03:33 PM
    This is perhaps my very biggest pet peeve here on HBT. Some guy will post a question about
    bottling, or relate a issue he has had. Within half a dozen posts, some enlightened
    genius/comedic mastermind...

    In addition to what is mentioned here, here are some smaller breweries and few other places you
    may want to consider: 1. Lightning (Poway): makes a great Pilsner, and is currently brewing a
    more tradi...

  • Posted in thread: Opening a Nanobrewery! on 04-18-2012 at 08:27 PM
    Wonderful! I don't think we can ever have too many breweries here. Even better if you do open
    in the Mira Mar/Mira Mesa area (close to work!). Can't really help you with anything other than
    coming in ...

  • Posted in thread: old speckled hen on 03-13-2012 at 10:05 PM
    +1 on the love for this beer. I had it first time on tap at a pub in Brisbane, Australia. Been
    hooked on it ever since! The origin of the beer has bit of history that car-buffs might enjoy:
