    Monster Energy Drinks attack VT Microbrewery

    The issue at hand is uncovered here actually: http://blogs.pe.com/business/2009/10/maker-of-monster-energy-drinks.html to quote the most telling part: So essentially Hansen is planning an alcoholic version of Monster. An ALCOPOP or as those in the industry prefer to call them...

    Monster Energy Drinks attack VT Microbrewery

    Well, they may have a relationship with AB as well I do not know for certain. I do know they have a deal with Coke definitely. I got my information directly from hansens website. Under their investor relations page their is a press release announcing a distribution deal with coca cola.

    Attn: Northeastern VT and Northern NH folks. New homebrew shop.

    If you live up this a way check out Granite Cask They are located in Whitefield NH. Just checked them out today. Small shop but really good selection for these parts and decent prices. I am stoked because finally there is a shop with decent liquid yeast close by... and star san, and...

    Okay, message received I guess. Time to move on.

    Well it is a useless thread and I actually find it pretty annoying myself. So whatever, but I am starting to wonder what else I have posted is being censored deleted rearranged... I love this place and it is the only forum I contribute to. I would like to think I have something to offer...

    At last the search for bigfoot is a success!

    10th of February 2009 He has eluded me for months now. It is the season when bigfoot is known to briefly come out of hiding. Still, spotting him has proven nearly impossible. I nearly had him last Thursday. A tip led me to a location not far from my outpost but somehow he must have known...

    Can anyone point me to or offer more information on the Scottish "Tall Font"

    Nah, that would require writing and thinking... I just want it to be a sensory research trip for my own edification. er, meaning I just want to drink my way through! :drunk:

    Can anyone point me to or offer more information on the Scottish "Tall Font"

    Hey, I was just quoting the book. :D My only info is from reading not experience. Never been to the UK. From what I understand CAMRA frowns on sparklers so the above quoted comment seemed to be valid. Hey, I have been know to use the cheap trick of using a "flavor injector" syringe to...

    Can anyone point me to or offer more information on the Scottish "Tall Font"

    :off:Went top down eh? Any reason why? Part of my whole project was to build the yeast with each succeeding brew. I have only used one propagator pack of Wyeast 1728 for the whole series. I actually made a starter from the original pack. Pitched it in the 60/- then I washed the yeast from...

    had to give it a go... Xocolatl -Mayan Imperial Stout

    The OG ended up being as calculated at 1.096. But I was about 3/4 of a quart short on volume at the end of boil. Had to try and squeeze as much as possible out of the kettle so I got a lot of trub which I believe is actually mostly cocoa powder. My preboil gravity was 1.067 when expected was...

    had to give it a go... Xocolatl -Mayan Imperial Stout

    while I wait for it to ferment I figured I would play with flavors some to decide the next steps. Whipped up a batch of "actual" xocolatl today based on the information I found online so I could see what it may have tasted like. Using what ingredients I had at hand. I took 2 cups of water...

    Does anyone else detect diacetyl in Sam Adams beers?

    Nope, from the bottle each time. Again, I ain't saying it is a flaw. I just never noticed it in the past. Now it screams at me. Many east coast (New England especially) breweries use yeast strains that have a diacetyl character to them. Many of which are located in Maine. Seems to be a...

    Regained respect for Long Trail brewery VT.!

    I have heard of the Triple bag. I thought it was only available at the brewery though. I have not seen it. I don't get down to the brewery as it is a litle out of the way for me. The annoying thing is, I tried to find out more about their Brewmasters series on their website. No mention of...

    Anyone on the east coast have access to Anchor Small beer?

    I have seen it in CT. Possibly Table and Vine in Mass?

    Does anyone else detect diacetyl in Sam Adams beers?

    To clarify, I am not calling it a flaw. I just seem to sense it. Though for what it is worth I do not care for diacetyl and am pretty attuned to its presence. That being said, no it is not a flaw per se. Though in a lager some may argue it is a flaw... I could care less as I am not very...
