Maybe, after seeing all of the drawing of Calvin urinating on things, she meant that it wasn't the normal tinklewater but something better, like Hobbes.

Back to my complaint about brewers bsing about being the first or the biggest etc., one of the local brew pubs has this to say about their oatmel stout:

Quote:
Other than a Draft Dry Stout, which are low in gravity & just have 1 hop edition, Oatmeal Stouts are a bit heavier: & because it`s us brewing, we added 2 more hop editions. & we enjoyed doing that so so much, that we used whole leaf Cascade. Cos nobody else ever did. & of course it contains oatmeal.

Is it really possible that these people were the first to think of putting cascade hops in an oatmeal stout?

Is it bad that I find myself wondering if I'd be willing to drink a beer made by someone who doesn't know the difference between edition and addition? Maybe in a personal brewing journal it wouldn't matter, but this is a business website; show a little pride!

I don't think it's so much the mistake that bothers me as it is the lack of attention to detail that went into editing their website. I hope that doesn't carry over into their brewing.

Edit: Never mind. I went to the website. It's an error in translation from German.

I hope not, I spent an hour mulling over the idea this morning....

I was willing to give them a pass on the above until I saw the next description:

Quote:
1516 Weisse

Bavarian style wheat ale, with the a light difference of 2 late hope editions. With Casacade. Yeah baby, Yeah.
But then I realized that it is just bad translation....and I suppose brewing an oatmeal stout with whole leaf cascade in Vienna probably is unusual

Oh wow, I've actually been to this place! I visited a friend in Vienna several years ago, and he took me and a few of his co-workers to the brewpub. They had a fairly limited beer selection at the time...I don't remember any oatmeal stouts or IPA's on the menu, but it's cool that they're branching out.

But getting back on topic, I can give a pass to typos and bad translations from foreign sites as long as it's mostly readable. Now, if it shows up on Sam Adams' website, that's a different story...
