MylesHeartVodak: this guy realized that modern craft brews would not exist without the macrobrew industry.


We have been brewing since the dawn of civilization (some argue that brewing is what lead us to civilization) yet we have only enjoyed a beverage which we would recognize as beer since sometime in the 1800's. This is due almost entirely to the mega-huge breweries. I'm not trying to downplay their contributions to the understanding of of scientific principles underpinning malting, barley and hops genetics and agroscience, water chemistry (the pH scale was invented in the Carlsberg brewing labs), mashing, boiling, fermentation, conditioning, sanitation, yeast propagating and genetics, packaging, and far more. They have given us all of these advances, but they still don't give us very good beer.

The huge brewerys have contributed greatly to brewing science, but they don't make good beer. Light lager is probably the most difficult style to brew, but still not good beer. The people who brew it work very hard and care a lot, but it is still not good beer. Yes, mass produced light lager is an amazing feat of chemical engineering. That does not mean it is good beer.

Tango_down: I would like to toss out a trade secret here. Brewing beer is a great date activity. You get to see how she does in the kitchen. If it works out its a cool story and if not you have something to help you forget.

Meghan was ok
Brittany was good
Megan was bad
Might start an Alicia this weekend ;-)

a tip though, don't get stoned and shag during the boil stage... pick one or the other.


I remember I ruined a batch because I got drunk and fell asleep while brewing. Wish I could say it was from banging.

Either way, don't take impairing agents in large quantities while you brew, kids.
