Treygreen13: Cerebral Knievel: The Golden is more in lines with a original British style IPA, 7.5% abv, Hops are up front but with a strong malt background. Mt. Hood is the stand out hop. Uses an American ale yeast, You can get it as a homebrewer, I just can't tell you the number.

Interesting, that's a totally different way than I took mine. I'm using a light crystal malt with WLP570 Yeast instead of trying to reconstitute one from an existing bottle (which I've never actually done), with Stygian Goldings and Czech Saaz hops.

Sounds like your Golden is more robust.


yep, nice and chewy! :D
it's primarly base 2 row, with some extra special and Munich. a little gypsum.Mt. hood, Haulertou, and saaz.
it's a 30bbl system so the grain bill weighs in around 2,200lbs.

also keep in mind that the water here is similar to the water in Munich.

but this stuff (takes another sip) is smoooth :) maybe a little too smooth. Im talking as a beer fan here, not as a brewer. It's damn tasty, everyone who tires it becomes a fan immediately. kinda leaves a roasty, honey taste on your mouth after words, but that bittering hops do a good job of cleansing the palate for the next sip.

Bruxellensis:

Do I see oak casks in the background?


yep.. we got a cask program going on :) those guys back there were holding Choclate porter and Brown Ale... they've since been run off to kegs, the Brown ale sold out immeditly and we have something like 10 SB'd of the chocolate porter left.
the next round has Dopplebock in them, we have three more that we're probably going to regular porter into. later this year we're going to be oaking some barley wine.

They're from the Bowmans Distillery in Fredricksburg VA and held Virginia Gentleman. While it's the same company, the cheap rail liquor Bowmans is made under contract in Baltimore.

Cirrus vodka is made down the street from the brewery. it's apparently a one man operation, and that guy is a chemistry professor at VCU.A true Virginia grown Potato vodka. I've been thinking of offering a trading of labor for knowledge with him.

Cool. I've been using rods, cubes, and chips to get oak character, but I'm also looking at used oak barrels online. Those beers sound good. If I find myself in VA, I'll stop in and give one a try.

If you make it out here, id love to show you around the little toy shop!
The barels can get a little scary sometimes.. after the booze leaves them they start to dry out, and it can take a couple of weeks with beer in them to swell back up. I think we lost some 3-5 gallons out of one of them from a slow drip. I think they charge us something like $50 a pop for them. Of course the place is only a half hour drive so we go pick them up

A tour sounds good. Perhaps followed by some "quality control."

Shipping is a killer for those, and I don't have a local distillery around me. I'll have to see if I can pick one up while on vacation somewhere or something. I'll find one some way or another. I would love to age my lambics in one.

Ah, Warsteiner. After coming back from Germany, I saw that everywhere, and while it was solid, it's definitely not the best one I had there. The thing is, I don't remember which one of them was my favorite because, well, I was in Germany.

Not even close. I drive a truck 5 minutes to work every day
Watch Japanese children's cartoons on a Mac No to the mac, and I watch Japanese animation intended for adults (not the pr0n stuff, just not meant for kids)
4. Appreciate the warmth of vinyl phonograph records CDs and MP3 all the way. Though I do like casette tapes for off-roading as they don't skip
5. Read books at Starbucks Why would anybody pay that much for coffee?
6. Claim to prefer girls with small breasts Nope, wife has double Ds which I thoroughly enjoy
7. Make snide remarks about Wal-Mart. They're evil, but I still shop there
8. Walk past a smoker and make pretentious coughing noises Nope, I like to smoke a pipe or cigar every now and then, and hate being hassled over it
9. Take comfort in believing size doesn't matter Whatever you gotta tell yourself to sleep at night, piss drinker
10. Feign disgust at the idea of eating a Big Mac I miss the Double Big Mac

A small one, but they use chips, or so I've heard. Honestly, I'll take any oak barrel if it's the right price. I would experiment to see what style benefited the most from that type of oak and what it was previously used for.

I currently use medium toasted oak for lambics, about 4 oz. of chips per 10 gallons. I like the results, but I can do better.

Anyway, time to go home and hit the taps. Cheers!

1) I watch my tv 5-10 times/week, mostly showtime (shameless, californication, dexter, house of lies, etc)
2) Haven't ridden a bike in years. I drive a shiatty Chevy Cobalt ever since my rock-solid Kia Spectra got rear-ended to death.
3) Used a Mac briefly around 2005-2008, when I was doing electronic assembly (recreating artwork in Illustrator, mostly for beer companies), but that's an industry that is still owned by Mac and has been since they moved on from rubyliths. As for Japanese cartoons, I've watched a few. Vampire Hunter D, Ninja Scroll, the basics. Not a big fan, but had a brief phase where I dug em around 1994.
4) Haven't had a record since I burned Abbey Road just to watch it melt. Somewhere around 1979.
5) fark *$. When I drink coffee, which isn't often because I'm pushing 40 and caffeine farks me up nowadays, I want Kenya AA or Sumatra, not some goofy ass "#6" or "Tiffany's Blend" or whatever the fark they have at Starbucks. I've been there a few times, the people working there can never identify what beans they're using, so fark em. I'm a coffee snob like I'm a beer snob. I want the right stuff. Good beans for coffee, proper technique for beer (ale or stout, not some pissy lager)
6) Wife's got em big, double D, prior girlfriend had straight D. Did date a small boobied girl when I was 19, but it didn't get serious. Model-pretty face, but had serious issues.
7) Wal-Mart is definitely part of the problem in America, killing family businesses not giving health insurance to its employees, importing so much cheap shiat from overseas that they've single-handedly tipped the import:export ratio a few degrees the wrong direction. That said, I still shop there occasionally because their evil marketing plan works. They sell certain things at below cost to get you in the door, so even if you avoid them most of the time you're probably going to at least go in there for the toilet paper that's $4 less than at your local grocery store. I was a night stocker at a Wal-Mart in the early 90s. They sold Hunt's puddings for $0.13 less than they paid for them, Pringle's chip tubes for $0.24 less than they paid, taking losses on every unit, but it got people into the store. When you have that much buying power you can do a lot of things that completely annihilate any chance of real competition. Squashing the other businesses (when's the last time you went to a True Value for lightbulbs or a hammer?) so all the profit goes to one company, a company that buys the vast majority of its goods from overseas and doesn't take care of its own employees. That's inarguably bad for America.
8) Smoking is a terrible habit, but I broke it. I prefer not to be around smokers, but I will vote against smoking bans in bars every time. I feel every bar should allow smoking. That's half of why you go there. To drink and smoke, that's what bars are for. Whiny little shiats crying that they have to breathe smoke while they're serving fries should shut the fark up and go work at McDonald's instead of a bar.
9) Mine gets it done, wife had a hysterectomy so even if I had more there wouldn't be anywhere for it to go, cervix is closed. And I check that lock every time.
10) McDonalds is a place for children. I prefer a nice bloody steak.

I had to highlight this particular one because my Wal*Mart actually has a pretty good craft beer selection, especially local (VA) beers, I can get you guys' Brown and Lager there. I picked up a 6-er of Starr Hill Double Platinum there two weeks ago, it was oxidized all to shiat, but I digress...

I still think it's funny, "The Troll" needs to update his act. Craft beer is still relatively niche, but it's not as niche as it used to be. Mad Men will never be American Idol, but When Mad Men is pulling down 2 million viewers, that says alot about how people's taste in television is evolving. I can get Starr Hill and Legend at Wal*Mart, I can get Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye at CVS, and I can get Bear Republic Racer 5 at the bloody gas station (in Virginia)...Craft Beer is more mainstream than it's ever been and its market share is only going to increase.

The Homer Tax: 25/25

That should have been a breeze for any even borderline beer snob. Most of those are mass-marketed national beers, the handful of craft breweries on there are relatively well known.

I'm surprised at how many people don't know Goose Island (but not really with the nature of beer distribution), If they were still considered a craft brewery, they'd easily be in the top 15 from a production standpoint at ~150k barrels last year.


Aced it too. But being in the beer business { A-B InBev}, we sell several of these.
There's not too many of Goose Island's beers i've tried I didn't like. Demolition being my favorite.
FWIW, thanks to globalization Goose Island 312 and Bass {read the label sometime} are made in Baldwinsville New York. Beck's is now made in St. Louis - and we're less than 200 miles from the Lou and we have to get the damn Bud Light Platinum from New York. Go figure.

Spaten and Franziskaner are quasi-ubiquitous- many grocery and liquor stores around me have Franziskaner and several carry Spaten helles (Trader Joe's locally also has that at $7.50 a sixer), as well as a couple German restaurants. Additionally, Paulaner, Hofbrau and Weihenstephaner helles, weisses and marzens are all available at BevMo. I also have a couple local lines into stuff like Hacker-Pschorr and Schneider-Weisse (Aventinus is nectar of the gods), Ayinger, Weltenburger bocks, weisses, helles, etc., and some of the pilsners like Bitburger and Warsteiner (also available at TJ's and BevMo). I'd hope your experience had more to do with how long the beer was on the shelf before you got your hands on it rather than anything Paulaner pushed out the door.

Never heard of Goose Island. Am I missing anything?

I kept entering "Boddington" and it wouldn't take it until I did "Boddington's".

Can you get decent imports of those in the states? A while back I picked up some Paulaner Hefeweizen I saw at a liquor store and was greatly disappointed that it didn't match my memories of it from when I was stationed in Germany.

Well it is quite possible it sat on the shelf for ages. Here in buttfark central Wisconsin most folks seem to stick to either the local brews like Point, Leinenkugel's, and New Glarus, or they gravitate towards the Bud, MGD, or Natty lites, and it shows at the various grocery stores. Just going from what I my hazy memories of Germany and after viewing the BevMo site, most of the bars I went to back then may have been serving Schneider hefeweizens. I may have to see if I can order some of that from BevMo's site instead of picking up stuff that's been on the shelf for who knows how long at the local liquor store. Thanks!

The Schneider-Weisse beers are awesome. I can strongly recommend them and the Weihenstephan hefeweizen, though it's still extremely hard to beat Franziskaner for a good solid wheat. If I was clocking out and I had one last twenty on me I'd probably blow it on a pint each of Schneider Aventinus, Franziskaner hefeweizen, Paulaner helles and maybe Spaten Optimator, though I'd have to hope it was sometime near the end of the year and I could get a six of Sierra Nevada Celebration instead. Of course if we're talking "stranded on a desert island with one beer" kind of thing, that's different- Paulaner or Spaten helles wins that. :)

PunkTiger: It's from Heironymus Bosch's "Garden of Earthly Delights"... or the third Deep Purple album cover.


Wow, just got done looking thruogh the ginormous hi-res image they have there on Wikipedia. That was the most surreal "Where's Waldo" I've ever played.

If you make it over further east, there's a place off I-94 in Kenosha named Uncle Mike's that has a great selection. I seem to recall the Woodmans that's next to it also has a pretty good selection, if you're going to make a beer run. Buy some beer to take home and throw it in the trunk, then throw back a couple on tap at Uncle Mike's.

They even have Delirium Tremens on tap, and regularly have Rochefort 10 bottles in stock. What's not to love?

This Richmond VA home brew is better than most all of those.
