Got a mix and match 6 pack at Market District for the game. Drinking a Southern Tier Tangier at the moment, it's actually pretty decent considering I don't go for IPAs very often.
Not sure if that was the one I had or not. It was that or Voodoo I think. It was definitely New Belgium, but it was on tap. Guess I'll just have to try both again.
Got a 4 pack of Founders Frootwoods. I think its a cool, unique beer, but it's not for me.
Planning a vacation in Vermont. Any recommendations on where to go? I know Alchemist, Hill Farmstead, and Fiddlehead are must visits. Anywhere else? So stoked to finally, hopefully, get my hands on some Heady Topper.
I went to Copper Kettle Brewing last weekend to try it out. We go back at the start of May to bottle our beer.
In the mean time, I'm reading about how to do homebrewing.
I can't give you names but I remember when I was in Vermont seeing a fair few cider orchards advertising their business. If apples do it for you it might be worth hunting a few out.
Cascade has a beer called Pitts-Burgh Punch. It's not bad.
What are you reading?
I picked this up probably 2 years ago and finally got around to starting it.
I was given a little starters homebrew kit for Christmas I figure I should put it to good use.
It's been a while since I've posted here, but for you Pittsburgher's, how amazing has Brew Gentlemen become? They are just killing it in the IPA game right now, making some of the best in the country.
Well, in general, I don't like IPAs. I also don't like how... gentrify-ee they are.
I'm also a very negative person.
It's ok. I'm a glass half full type of guy too.
Although their IPAs have a completely different taste profile than your typical bitter, dry, super hopped up IPAs. They follow the new wave of New England style IPAs that have juicy, fruity, hazy features.
Couch brewing is opening up this weekend. They name their beers after types of sofas, etc. If they take suggestions, I'll suggest:
The Pull Out Milk Stout
Don't you dare steal my suggestion.
Almost spit my water out reading that.
Cobblehaus brewing also just opened in Coraopolis. Their styles are inspired by German and Belgian brewing but have a little of everything. It's not too far from me so hoping to get over there soon.
German, Belgium, Danish, Polish and Czech beers to try.
Drinking some Troegenator for the game. One of my all around favorites.
I'm drinking some Heavy Seas Summer Ale.
Made a beer label:
Bought a case of Sleemans for my bday. Tonight it will be bog standard Bud etc but I don't care. May have to have a few shots of Jager too
Drank 9 "Shock Top Belgian Whites" while out for lunch this afternoon.
T'was good beer. I'd drink it again.
You drank 9 beers at lunch?
Also, screw Shock Top and AB Inbev. Okay done with rant.
9 beers at lunch, you are my kind of man
It's cool, it was a work lunch.
Agreed on InBev. Barf.
Yes I did drink 9 beers at lunch yesterday.
Was a friend of mine's birthday yesterday so we had gone out for lunch.
