I got my case last week, and just shared one of these last night to celebrate making it through
Monday. Ridiculously tasty, and kind of amazing to get it at 1/5 of what it should cost before

And lumping them into "gateway beers" is also short-sighted (no offense BarleyStanding, not
just singling out your post). I've been drinking craft beer of all kinds for over twenty years,
and I will a...

If beers brewed with non-traditional ingredients are made well, they use one to several
ingredients sparingly to create unique tastes that often can't be achieved with standard
ingredients. And when t...

A terminal gravity of 1.040 - 1.045? That sounds ridiculously sweet to me, even given the huge
abv. I've shot for a ~1.025 terminal gravity before on a really big beer, but finishing as high
as 1.045 ...

I would drink your bottle of Saison Brett now, but that's just my two cents. One of the best
parts of that beer is how the brett flavors and aromas blend with the Amarillo dry hops. Its
really quite a...

Not now. The stuff I brew is consistently better than anything I can buy. Sometimes that's not
true, but at the end of the day, commercial brewers, no matter their style or scale, have
problems I don'...
Posted in thread: Worst Commercial Beer You've Ever Had? on 04-30-2014 at 03:54 PM
I consider myself a super beer nerd and I couldn't stand Crime. Way too much heat to make it
enjoyable. I split a bottle with a few friends and couldn't finish my glass. I took the
Punishment and put ...

If you liked the Lindeman's Gueuze, there are likely plenty of sours that you will like. That's
a good gateway beer into the style and should prime you for some of what to expect in other
sour beers. ...

Every entry at MCAB already won its category at a pretty legit competition. A brewer would have
already gotten feedback from other competitions on these beers. I would agree with you on this
point if ...
Posted in thread: Masters Championship of Amateur Brewing (MCAB) on 03-03-2014 at 06:38 AM
I qualified for, and entered a beer into, the 2013 MCAB. I was underwhelmed by the feedback I
got. Each criterion had a single line, 3 - 5 words of feedback, from both of the judges. It was
the least ...
