Just because you can do something doesn't mean you should do it.

"Wha...huh?" indeed. On this submission, that is. And why the Entertainment tab? Did the modmins read "John Maier" and think it was John Mayer?

Homebrewers have been doing similar ales for years. Northern Brewer has had a Chocolate and Peanut Butter brew kit awhile and adding banana puree to the mix isn't a big deal. Of course, I doubt too many homebrewers would want to drink 5+ gallons of this kind of beer. I doubt I'd want more than 1 bottle.

Bacon Maple? Do you drink it with breakfast in the morning?

I honestly like some of these mapley stouts. They work. Rogue's Bacon Maple did not.

Bullshiat. If you can do something and it doesn't kill anyone, give it a whirl! It will either be good, bad, or something in between.

Not every beer needs to aim to be someone's go-to brew.

It's actually Midwest Supplies that has the recipe (Chocolate Covered BEAVR NUTZ). I brewed it back in the spring for kicks and it was "meh" at best. The "gimmick" beer trend doesn't do it for me. There's plenty of ways to be creative with homebrewing without totally running the actual beer style into the ground.You're exactly right about not wanting 5 gallons of this stuff sitting around. You drink one bottle and thing "OK, I've tried it" and move on.

Next pet peeve on the list: The "hops explosion!!!" beers...

I brewed a chocolate peanut butter stout 2 years ago, its hard to get the peanut flavor because you cant have fat in beer. It ended up tasting like a snickers bar. It was ok but i won't do it again.

Terrapin just came out with a chocolate/peanut butter stout, so I'll probably try and snag a bit when I'm back there for Thanksgiving. I'm thinking it'll suck, but who knows? Worth a go at the very least.

The problem with these types of beers is that they're a novelty. They may be good for 1 or 2 but after that I can imagine it just getting gross. A good tasting session ale goes a lot farther in my opinion.

Rogue is making a beer with yeast found in the beard of one of their brewers.
 
2012-11-16 10:44:00 AM
I'm actually pretty excited about this one. I don't generally enjoy beers having anything to do with fruits, but I'm a sucker for unique flavors. I'm also a fan of Banana Bread Beer and greatly enjoy chocolate and peanut butter, so this sounds pretty tasty to me...

It's nothing super exciting, just a nice after dinner/desert kind of beer.
 
2012-11-16 10:44:06 AM
Now if they were trying to create those flavors using various malts and a wheat yeast, it might be something subtle and delicious. Actually adding chocolate, peanutbutter, and bananas sounds like a disgusting mess.

Banana Bread Beer is the exception, they don't overdo it with the banana flavor, but even with that it gets to be too much after about 3. Same thing with the fig flavor in Southern Tier 2XMas (which I am a big fan of). It's good but after 2 or 3 it is kind of syrupy.

Seriously, I may not love this beer, but I'll sure try it. They mangled the bacon maple ale, which can be done very well, so no hopes are up here.

My biggest pet peeve about brewing is people who would be so presumptuous as to tell other people what to brew. My second biggest is people who actively discourage experimentation.

This beer doesn't appeal to me. I might try it to say I did, but I'm not going to go out of my way to do so...but I wouldn't in a million years suggest that it's something they shouldn't have even tried.

I don't really like stouts either, I wouldn't suggest that people stop brewing stouts because they don't fit my personal taste. A beer enthusiast cares about the beer they drink, a beer snob cares about the beer you drink.

I encourage experimentation, both in creating and dispensing of the results, but there's a certain point where I just can't bring myself to call something a "beer". I know, I know, completely arbitrary as with many other beverages, alcoholic (sake as rice "wine") or non-alcoholic (chamomile "tea").

Meh the BJCP has Category 23 for a reason...there's nothing in te description of his to me that would qualify it as "not beer."

My local microbrewery-restaurant did a Snickers stout last winter. It was absolutely delicious in small quantities. One glass was great. Two was a challenge.

"It's time for a beer-flavored beer." And by that, I mean more than just hop juice. Red hop juice, black hop juice, brown hop juice, amber hop juice, etc I like beers brewed to style. You want an IPA? Make one! Leave the other styles alone.

You do know that all beer has hops right? If not, it would be quite bland and nobody would drink it. Why don't you stick to macro-brewed lagers and leave the delicious ales to those who like it? Nobody is forcing you to drink anything, for that matter.

Most of those beers you dismiss as "hop juice" are actual styles.

That said, there's thousands of beers in all kind of styles available to most people. The whole "craft breweries only make over-hopped beer" is cliche, archaic, and wrong

It tasted far more mapley than bacony. If you've ever dunked bacon into maple syrup and ate it, it tasted kind of like that. Yummy at breakfast time, not so yummy in a beer. I think I ended up dumping it.

My bad. I order from both NB and Midwest so I confuse them sometimes when I talk about kits. I agree on the extreme IPAs. A good session IPA is okay once a year (I like spicy food) but I don't see why someone would want to brew a beer with several pounds of hops... wasteful.

For a good session beer I go with The Innkeeper and the Czech Pilsner although I modify the recipes a bit. I will say that I think the Urca Vanilla Porter is a good dessert beer and I have it on tap now. I just don't know if I can drink it all before the vanilla flavor fades out.

Not sure if your comment was directed to me but I just feel that this beer isn't something really new to homebrewers yet it is something that I doubt many would have occupy their fermenters, bottles, kegs, etc since it is obviously more of a novelty beer.

Hey, I am a guy who tried to make a Ginger Ale Soda tasting beer once for shiats and giggles and have been known to disregard styles when I brew. I do think craft/micro brewers get caught up too much in the marketing of the next exotic or extreme adjunct/ABV beer and slack when it comes to the taste and variety of their session brews.

PB2 is powdered peanut butter, with 85% of the fat removed, for any home brewers out there who want to try something similar.

You seem to really be into session beers and that's cool, I brew them from time to time. I just don't see why you feel the need to be so judgmental about beers that don't appeal to you. Some of us like really hoppy beers and high ABV beers.

It's beer, it's good. If it doesn't appeal to you, that's cool. But let's not pretend like the vast majority of craft brewers don't produce a wide range of styles, tastes, ABVs, etc. if you name any brewer that I've heard of, I can find a beer that appeals to you.

It's actually nice that most of the beer snobs on that board support this guy despite the last trainwreck of a crazy beer they released (bacon maple, which evidently tasted like pig ass - but not in the good way).

Personally, I fully support small breweries trying to push the limit like this. They have access to people with the right skills and materials to potentially make some awesome beers and what they are doing is experimenting and having a good time.

Hell, even if they make 99 shiatty beers, but that last one is freaking awesome. It's worth it.The world needs more awesome beer.

Why don't you make an actual Ginger Beer?

I moved down to Australia a few years ago and have sampled quite a few alcoholic Ginger Beers down here (Ginger Beer, the non alcoholic kind, is quite normal, like ginger ale but with more bite).

I'm actually putting on a brew next week and considering doing one myself. I bought some home brew from the local brew house a few months back and I had an outstanding one that was bottled with chili-peppers in it, it had an awesome ginger taste with a chili kick. So good.
