    TG is good, and finally somewhat available in Des Moines, which is great. I don't think the
    stout is available year round, but I'm not a TG expert by any means. I am not even sure how far
    out of Decor...

    My oldest daughter is 5.5 years old and as all young children she is very observant of what's
    going on around the house. Well now she is very interested in why "I like beer so much", she
    asks that at ...

    I think he's talking about the "touch of pedio funk" since that's a souring bacteria.I think
    all beer descriptions that get into that detail, like "pear skin" and "confectioners sugar" is
    hilarious. M...

    Exciting. I grabbed a 4-pack in small town Iowa last week after I thought it was gone. Rumor is

    homebrew to meetingsWe give him a hard time because he has admitted enjoying drinking the BMC
    to get the bo...

    Well, when I was up with Mack King for this trick, my wife was the only one who knew me, and
    she did know there was no way in hell I would order Budweiser. He also "stole" my watch. The
    only trick inv...

    The fact that you're married is the important part. Congrats!

    Only a couple uses would be referring to the big whiskey/oak flavor in the beer I assume? It
    will go "neutral" after a few beers have been put through it. I plan to get 2-3 clean beers
    through it befo...

    Its worth if you consider the price you'd pay for 150 12oz barrel aged beers at $5+ each. I
    figure it pays for itself after the first use. FWIW though, I didnt buy these myself. One was a
    gift and sho...
