I would think onions would go well with cascade hops - they seem to taste similar. maybe an onion and garlic beer???

Ive thought about an onion garlic beer. I wouldnt carbonate it, and I would use it for cooking. There are a suprising number of garlic beer recipes out there.

...when you don't mind spending 4 hours cleaning and scrubbing bottles, but won't wash the dishes...

...when you have "homebrewer" in your email address...

when you scour garage sales, flea markets, etc. for anything that could possibly be used in homebrewing.

When you've spent a Sunday farting continuously.
When you get mad at friends for throwing away bottles.
When your friends quit drinking beer because they're tired of being bored with your informational lectures on it.
When you have a green, leafy substance in the freezer and it's not the smoking kind.

Now, for my input on the garlic/onion off-topic, I'm thinking about asparagus beer. Mainly because I made some proscuitto wrapped grilled asparagus last weekend and couldn't handle how bad my pee smelled afterwords. I then became obsessed with how horrible an asparagus beer would make your pee smell (and how often you'd pee).

There's one thing that strikes me as odd about this thread...

Getting a birthday present from your next-door neighbor? I can't remember the last time I received a birthday gift from anyone other than my immediate family members.

You spend $45 grand on a new garage, because the brewery has taken over the old one.
You take cornies of ale to club meetings, not to show off your skills, but because you have more ale waiting for a keg.
Your kegger is bigger and newer than the fridge in the kitchen.
Someone posts a joke about onion beer, and you start thinking about what hops you would use. (I've had garlic wine at the Gilroy garlic Festive. I wouldn't use it on compost)

I had that crap at the Gilroy Garic Fest, too. The only thing it was good for was washing the taste of the garlic ice-cream out of your mouth.

A garlic fertival?? The only positive thing about attending that would be the assurance there would be no vampires there.
