Do you guys know that among the employee incentives, is a homebrewing Club? They actually have an amazing amount of support systems and internal organizations for their employees, including a large company wide homebrewing club. One of their members was on here for awhile. AHB was actually giving hops and other stuff to the club.

It's on the employee resources page.



They call them ERGs, Employee Resource Group

Creating a consistent gallon of gasoline from crude oil is one helluva task as well, but I certainly don't want to drink it.

I acknowledge their efforts, but likewise... I don't want to drink it.

While I admire there technical abilities I think their beer is crap. I'm sorry but when the most noticeable flavor is acetaldehyde it's not a quality product.

Now I know they are capable of making great beer. Anybody remember the hefeweizen under the Michelob label a few years ago?

When first started getting into craft beer I would drink a lot of Budweiser. Never noticed that flavor because it had been my beer of choice since I started drinking.

One day I was talking to this guy I worked with about beer after work. He told me to take a drink of my Bud and think green apples. Have never been able to drink that beer since without picking up that flavor.

The "drink this and think of ____" trick can be done to find almost anything in any beer. This is why beer labels often have long descriptions about what you should taste and smell. This primer for your senses is powerful. It's also why genuine taste tests are blind.

And why my beers taste like gold.
