I would have to say they're a bunch of weiners. Except on that infused Mich Ultra. That sounds repugnant.

What a bunch of sissies! Except for the last two, the coconut and pomegranate thingies, those were serious, well respected beers. The whole article is the equivalent of "Eeewww! People put mold on their cheese and eat it! Gross!"

A neurotic, whiny, frightened group of pillow biters, if you ask me. Why are they writing about beer?

"Another fun fact about the Zymomonas: it’s the only bacteria which propels itself through liquid via flagellum. Do you really want that swimming around in your beer?"

Yes I do.

I agree with the above posts. The writers obviously never eat in restaurants either

Even if I didn't think I would like the beer I would try it. Only beer I have seen that gives me pause was the snatch yeast beer that was talked about here a while back. Been thinking about that for a long time and I am not sure if I could bring myself to try it.

Flavored Mich Ultra sounds gross, and the coconut brew isn't all that appealing (I'd try it). However, who in their right mind wouldn't want to try the other four? ...and these people hint at being beer snobs (turns up nose).

That Alba pine is a fantastic beer that I scoop up whenever I find it in stock for a reasonable price. I've even had a coconut beer that was decent at the Elk's Head in Buckley, WA so I won't rule that out either. What a bunch of snobs.
