yeah, cuz Dogfish Head needs some more hoppiness to their beers
 
2013-05-24 01:51:56 PM
dogfish head? shocking
 
2013-05-24 01:52:02 PM
Thanks anyway, but I don't drink PBR or the like, so my beer doesn't taste like ass to begin with.

I don't think a French press is going to fix the loss of masculinity in the world.
 
2013-05-24 01:53:22 PM
Step 1) Buy beer that doesn't taste like ass.
Step 2) Put it in a coffee press.
Step 3) Drink it.


I sense an unnecessary step.

If your beer tastes like ass it's time to stop drinking belgian trippels.

I agree, subby...that article made me sick too.


Although...might be a good way to add lime to your Corona or Dos Equis. Grate some lime zest and do it that way...has potential!

BlousyBrown: dogfish head? shocking


I really wanna like them. I mean, really really want to be on  board. The 60 mins I can drink. I like a nice IPA. Hoptical Illusion by Magic Hat is a fine example. This seemingly endless trend of "there's no such thing as too many hops" has gotta stop though.

My beer is already has a full, rich flavor. Thanks, though.

Leave it to modern American microbrews to figure out how to cram more hops into an IPA.

Never had that, but it looks good. I'll have to see if my local distributor can get it in.

Well, considering how fantastic Arrogant Bastard takes to oak for the Oaked variety, I would imagine either the coconut or the cocoa nibs would work well, though all of them together would be somewhat of a mess of a beer.

What you have to ask is why is anyone adding coffee to Old Rasputin? North Coast already hit upon one of the most balanced imperial stouts I have found.

skullkrusher: This seemingly endless trend of "there's no such thing as too many hops"


Exactly. I think the whole microbrew concept is cool, but too many have decided that since they don't actually know what they're doing they'll just cram it so full of hops it's all you can taste.

It's akin to all the restaurants that can't figure out a good menu so they just keep salting everything until you can't tell what it was supposed to actually taste like.

I was actually at the Dogfish Head Brewpub not long ago. It's alright, but nothing great. The food is nothing special and, frankly, I think their beer is garbage. I wouldn't go back.

it is delightful. Hard to see in the pic but it's made by Goose Island Brewery. It could very well take you an hour to drink a 22 oz bottle and you're only gonna drink one, MAYBE two in a sitting. It is an awesome Drink One on a Sunday Night While Watching Game of Thrones beer. It'll last most of the episode and the high ABV will put you right in that super comfortable Imma sleep like a baby zone

Hoptical Illusion is by Blue Point. You can tell because any beer by Magic Hat other than #9 is worse than #9, and #9 only has a place when Sierra Nevada Pale isn't available.

Besides, there is a massive variety of beers to drink anymore. All manner from basically no hop additions to the obscenely hopped up with additional infusions, as with the Randal. In no way is anyone forced to consume them.

yeah I don't see the appeal. Forgot to mention that the Bourbon County Stout is an imperial stout that they age in old bourbon casks (hence the name). Nice smokey awesome taste to it

I was referring to my distaste for the more hops is always better trend. But yeah,  that shiat is da bomb as the kids say.. or used to say. I dunno, I'm farking old

This and the Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale are fantastic, and not owned by one of the big producers. I also imagine a sharp drop in quality for Goose Island is on the horizon since the acquisition.

Here is a tip, why don't you buy and drink beer that doesn't need help in making it taste good.

Really enjoy LaCrosse now, my local microbrewery Pearl Street Brewery, has a great smokey hemp porter.

skullkrusher: This seemingly endless trend of "there's no such thing as too many hops" has gotta stop


Yes!

Luminiferous Aether: /won't buy American beer


I am getting dangerously close to that point. Beers from Europe just have so much more of a sense of balance and elegance, on average. Even the cheaper stuff, while it's usually nothing mind-blowing in the flavor department, is rarely in any way bad. Just mellow.
 
2013-05-24 02:11:13 PM
Step 1) toss beer and press in trash
step 2 ) crack open bottle of whisky
step 3) pour in glass with ice and enjoy.

That stuff is not your garden variety "overhopped and bitter" beer.  I was expecting a big hop bomb and was pleasantly surprised by its depth and character.  If you are looking for 100+ IBUs, then 120 is going to disappoint you.

/ About the French press Randall, I mean


I think the only problem you might encounter is the lack of a proper cap to maintain body of the beer. As long as only for three minutes, though, I doubt you'll see a problem unless you're splashing your beer into the press and over the screen or something. Still, the Randal Jr. is preferred due to the cap and being designed for an actual pint at a time, whereas a French press is often larger and therefore more space for gases to escape.

You sure about that?
 
2013-05-24 02:15:04 PM
A. Don't drink American beer.
2. Don't drink "Belgian" beer.
(d) Do drink Pilsner Urquell (or pretty much anything brewed in Munich).

If your beer tastes like ass, change to a different beer. If you want to drink fruit drinks, buy fruit drinks. If you want alcoholic fruit drinks, make yourself a wine cooler.
