dionysusaur: American Beer Day?


Got it in one!

Hey, that's lite beer.

I presume the "holiday" is inclusive of actual good beer produced in the USA - i.e., microbrews.

*shrug* I like many beers brewed in the US.
/same holds for beers from Europe, Asia, Australia, Canada, Mexico, and South America

May have to do something about this.

Now now. It's perfectly acceptable to shove a can yank beer up a chicken's arse before putting it on the grill.
All things have their purpose.

True, but subby is clearly old enough to remember the old "farking close to water" joke.

The only truly American beers are Kentucky Common and California Common. They are both very enjoyable, regional styles that nearly went extict due to Prohibition. The piss water stuff is theoretically lager, in the German style, although not self respect German would drink it. Nor American or any other nationality.

This whole "American beer" thing... mostly not really.

Beer brewing in America actually predates the European brewers and brewing styles, according to the National Day Calendar, going all the way back to Native Americans. Corn, birch sap and water were all used in the fermentation process. Colonists then combined this process with their own.

Can we be honest here? Corn, birch sap and water doth not beer make... an alcoholic beverage perhaps, but not beer.
As for the colonists...

In 1873, German immigrants Adolph Coors and Jacob Schueler from Prussia emigrated to the United States and established a brewery in Golden, Colorado, after buying a recipe for a Pilsner-style beer from a Czech immigrant William Silhan.

I'd consider 1873 to be immigrants, not colonists, and I can't recall any corn or sap in my beers, and I used to drink a lot of them.

In 1876, German-born Adolphus Busch and his friend Carl Conrad developed a "Bohemian-style" lager in the United States, inspired after a trip to Bohemia and produced it in their brewery in St. Louis, Missouri.

The Theodore Hamm Brewing Company was established in 1865 when German immigrant Theodore Hamm (1825-1903)[1] inherited the Excelsior Brewery from his friend and business associate, A. F. Keller

Leopold Schmidt, a German immigrant from Montana founded The Capital Brewing Company at Tumwater Falls on the Deschutes River in the town of Tumwater, near the south end of Puget Sound. He built a four-story wooden brewhouse, a five-story cellar building, a one-story ice factory powered by the lower falls, and a bottling and keg plant and in 1896, began brewing and selling Olympia Beer.

In Milwaukee, Joseph Schlitz was hired as a bookkeeper in a tavern brewery owned by August Krug.
Krug was born in Miltenberg, Bavaria, Germany, but when he was 33, in 1848, emigrated to the U.S. and settle in central Wisconsin. He opened a restaurant and the following year, 1849, added a brewery, which was known then as the August Krug Brewery. When he died young, in 1856, his bookkeeper, Joseph Schlitz took over management on behalf of Krug's widow, Anna Marie. In 1858, Schlitz married Krug's widow and renamed the brewery after himself.

The Stroh family began brewing beer in a family-owned inn during the 18th century in Kirn, in the Rheinland-Pfalz region of western central Germany.[3] In 1849, during the German Revolution, Stroh, who had learned the brewing trade from his father, emigrated to the United States. Bernhard Stroh established his brewery in Detroit in 1850 when he was 28 and immediately started producing Bohemian-style pilsner


Ok, you should get the point, but if not, do some research.
I love it when rednecks and hillbillies tout the "American beer" and "no imported crap" bullschlitz... I just tell them to enjoy their Nazi juice. (no that's not accurate or fair, but the reaction is usually precious)

Ah the coal miners piss.

Many a bonfire and bad ideas started off with a 12 pack of the lager and a 12 pack of the black and tan.

You're in PA you fool, you have access to the Victory and the Southern Teir.

If I was ever gonna get a tattoo of a beer, I swear it was gonna be the Storm King. Even though the one time I got to visit the brewery? Power was out and they couldn't serve me. I was at my holy grail and I couldn't partake. (Later on the same trip I bought an entire case at a liquor supply house in PA)

(Couldn't get victory in Montana, but I was doing work for a week in Alaska one February and even their liquor store had the Storm King. I bought some to bring back, and the TSA stole 2 THOSE BASTARDS)

farking TSA, to this day I still nurse a tl;dr grudge about my all time favorite swiss army knife.

le sigh, one of our other usual locales has Victory's Brotherly Love (hazy ipa) and Festbier (märzen, duh) on draft. but tonight we were across the street at $mai_waifu's beloved "authentic Italian family restaurant!!!" and most of their taps have long-since kicked... except for domestics.

I ain't mind Yuengling, and their black'n'tan is not half bad (but jeez is it hard to come by 'round-hyeah.)

Victory Beer Hall down stadium way is still the very best way to watch Phillies/etc. games, ah tellyu whut.

I have drank the shiat out of all those. When arrogant bastard came in a 6 pack of16 Oz tall boys it was my nightly ritual.

But the Storm King is an awesome IRS that made me fall truly and madly in love with heavy ABV and heavy calorie beer. I'll take it any day over the Ole Rasputin. But the Storm King was 10 bucks for a 6 pack when I found it, the Ole Rasputin was always a little more for a 4 pack.

Also Unibrous La Fin Du Monde was my go to every new years for several years.

But if I'm going Canada Way, Peche Mortel from Brasserie Dieu du Ciel

That beer is probably one of the best stouts I've ever had, and I love my imperial stouts.

I... I need an invite, I need to see this glorious alter.

I'll drink Storm King and watch football all day! Well maybe until the 10th or 12th one. After that all bets are off and I'm either getting arrested or I passed out somewhere in the vicinity.

if you're ever in Phila, you're welcome to our guest bedroom. mind, Citizens Bank Park is about 45 minutes by train or car, but my wife loves that beer hall almost as much as I do, so it's all good.
