beer in a can is always the 3rd choice

Cerebral Knievel: the only problem with most of those is they don't readily fit in the vintage coin op coke machine ;) both boddington, and old speckled hen put guiness to shame IMHO.


I love Speckled Hen; problem is the price on it is usually pretty unreasonable here.

Your first clue should have been the inclusion of watermelon.

It is suitable for wine or for inoculating with everclear or vodka, but never beer.

And I like some of the beers with fruit, and am willing to try just about any beer. For instance, I wonder if a blackberry stout would be any good?


I think the roasted barley would overpower the blackberry flavor.

You know what I have in my fridge right now? A bottle of Chimay Grande Reserve. It has about twice the alcohol content of the piss you drink, so why don't you just put on a skirt and swish around for us, ya pansy.

Maybe.

My favorite beer is still Walking Man Brewing's Black Cherry Stout. Sadly, the nearest place I can find it is up in Portland.

slidillon's beer rules:

No matter what container the beer comes in, pour it into a glass and drink it at the appropriate temperature. It WILL taste better this way and is worth the hassle of a dirty glass.

Do not buy beer in clear or even green bottles. Light exposure will make them skunky no matter how good they tasted when bottled.

Drink what you like!

virtualbeggar: Mikey1969: B: I never saw a second "revolution", just that more craft beers went national. I don't think these guys actually paid any attention to beer of craft brews...

I also like how they say "brewers took notice" that cans were light tight. They've known this all along, you morons.

/As much as I like stories about beer, your blog sucks. Next time pick someone who could drink in the 90's to do a story about drinking trends from the 90's to the present day.

I wrote the article and I want to defend myself on some points here:

1) The "Second" Craft Beer Revolution is reasonably well accepted dogma in the craft beer world. Ready more about it here: http://allaboutbeer.com/full-pints/2013/01/the-second-craft-beer-revol ution-will-it-stick-this-time/

2) I've been drinking craft beer for 15 years and have been writing about it professionally for 5. I spend a lot of time paying attention to beer. And though I didn't drink through all of the 90s (I was in my teens for most of it), I drank through as much of them as I could and did my research beyond that.

3) Yes, maybe "brewers taking notice" was the wrong phrasing, but the truth is brewers have finally begun speaking publicly about their love of cans as opposed to adhering to the standard idea that good beers come in bottles.

Thanks for all your criticism though, as right or wrong as they may be. Say what you want about the blog, but I tried to make my article as valid as possible and I am certainly not a "moron." Cheers.


I still noticed no difference between a "first" and a "second". I also wouldn't call them revolutions, but what the hell...

I saw some micros close down. In Phx, they got slashed by about 80%, but all I've seen craft beers do is continue to grow, rather steadily. Maybe I never saw a first and second because as a craft beer enthusiast, I always bought the good stuff from the liquor stores, or the brewery itself. I never saw it die off.

The link isn't working, but I'll take your word for it that they think there is a second revolution.

I believe the tech also improved enough that the beer would taste better in the cans then previously without having to fall back on the old Keystone "specially lined can" gimmick, another reason why they started being able to do cans. I agree that cans have a bad rap, just look at this thread.

And lastly, I'll say sorry about the 'moron' thing, I just got frustrated by hearing what seemed incomplete or wrong to me. Too many examples on the internet of crap now, I'm getting jaded at the smallest things. I didn't used to be so cynical, maybe it's because I don't drink enough beer anymore.
 
2013-01-25 05:20:14 PM  
if you don't like beer in a can, you're doing it wrong.
beer should always be poured into a glass, regardless of the packaging.

I accept your apology. It was said in the passion of beer so it's understandable.

See if THIS link works, but the gist of the two "revolutions" was that a lot of the "microbreweries" that were the trend in the late '80s and early '90s shut down in the mid-'90s when the "microbrewery bubble" burst. During that period, craft beer growth declined before once again picking up in the early 2000s and leading us to where we are today. Craft beer never really "died off," it just hit a bump in the road. Kinda like the "tech bubble."

In the end, it really doesn't matter. What matters is drinking beer. And being able to have a hobby that allows you to intoxicate yourself.

And thanks for responding. Glad I got to make my case. Something that rarely happens on the Internet!

Yeah, mass market ber is usually 3.2% to 5%. "Men" would rather drink in the 6% to 12% range, thank you. You take your diluted piss and go stand in the corner. I'll take my Stone Old Guardian and match you drink for drink, Thunderpiss.

Reality is canned beer is more stable since no light through the material. It helps with Craft Beers which can have distribution delays, be small consumption, etc.
 
2013-01-25 06:01:35 PM  
Lol @ the asshats saying canned beer tastes worse. Cans are technically superior because a) there is no light penetration and b) they are less likely to be sealed improperly, which can lead to infection/flatness.

/no, you can't tell the difference between one brand that is both canned and bottled, if both serving types are given in a blind taste test.

That link works. Thanks.

I seriously never saw the craft decline along with the micro bubble(I was a part of that one, the place I worked went under...), but maybe it was because I was on my own brewing kick, and on a jag where I was drinking Tecate with lime for awhile when it wasn't one of my own. Not sure why, but it's good beer that lands in the 'cheap' category, not the best, but before these were available in cans, it was my favorite choice for stuff like hitting the river... But yeah, I ony saw the micro part of it. The nice part was when I moved to Salt Lake I found a rather thriving microbrew scene, ironically enough.

Anyway, enjoy the beer, I'll keep an eye out for your blog in the future.

Good article, thanks... It seems to confuse microbrewing with craft brewing, though. They are two distinct areas, since micro becomes craft, becomes mass market after certain levels of sales. Still an interesting article. If anything would unseat the big corps making carbonated piss, I would be happy. Just as long as Red Hook doesn't fall with Anheuser Busch... That one is a very odd arrangement.

Right now I'm drinking an IPA I've never had before - it's called "Hop Stoopid", and it's what it says.
They decided that rather than put the grotesque amount of hops they wanted in it, and have the bottom of the kettle clog up with wort and turn the ale skunky, they would borrow a trick from the mass-piss-water brewers - they used hops extract. Good hop extract, that they made, is the drift I get,
At any rate, it's kind of weird. It's 8.0%, but you can't taste the alcohol, or, indeed anything but hops. And though there's not a trace of malty-ness, It's not really bitter - it has an oddly herbal, medicinal flavor.
I'm not sure how much I like it, but I think it would be good with heavy, greasy food - and anyway, the more of it I consume, the less it seems to matter.

Then I just had my brother in law bring down a couple of 4 packs from VT. So I was havin a laugh.


It's so Damn good. Had it at the farm house in Burlington back in October.
