t3knomanser: b0rscht: Which is why I still think the Germans make the best beer in the world.... mostly lagers and oh that wonderful malt....I'm the sort of person who likes to suck down a fruity Belgian.Come on, we're not doing "phrasing"?
CruJones: I have no trouble finding a good beer, ever. Just keep your mountain of hops out, thanks.
WTF Indeed: That's a lot of concern trolling over beer. However the real problem with American CRAFT beer is that everyone wants to make an IPA.
genepool lifeboat: Brew78: Not that I drink much beer these days. Stupid celiac :-(Have you tried any of the sorghum-based beers out there? They're not bad. I tried one out of curiosity and it had a really smooth taste to it.
FunkyBlue: WTF Indeed: That's a lot of concern trolling over beer. However the real problem with American CRAFT beer is that everyone wants to make an IPA.Becuase the American beer palette was basically trained for bitter, hoppy beers. We've been trained for years through commericals that Budweiser is real beer and how it's supposed to taste. So, we drink enough of it and it's what we've become accustomed to. it's also easier and cheaper to make a hop-filled lager than a decent beer, so that's what a lot of craft brewers seem to make for this market. Even their stouts are hoppy, bitter messes. All I know is that I'm sick of walking into a bar that advertises craft beers on tap and all they have are beers called "HopBomb", "HopSlam", or "HopPocalypse".
Valiente: , I don't even recognize gnat's piss like "Bud Light" as being beer.
t3knomanser: WTF Indeed: That's a lot of concern trolling over beer. However the real problem with American CRAFT beer is that everyone wants to make an IPA.Seriously. The worst part is that they all end up tasting the same- they all taste like hops. While hoppiness is key to the flavor of beer, if it conceals the malt, all you're really doing is making a shiatty beer.

Caffeine Induced Diarrhea: Well most beers taste like hops or malt or a combo of the two. You could say the same about too much of either one
