Every play the Palm Gay challenge? You punish yourself by chugging as many Palm Bays as possible.

I've never done it.

But which is worse, a Palm Bay or a Sommersby?

I don't even know what a Palm Bay is.

Had an Arrogant Bastard last night. Solid beer. Stone is a great brewery.

I have, didn't particularly like any of them. I know the Tom Green beer is popular with some, so you might like it. Buzz was like a better version of macro beer.

I've been drinking a lot of Boneshaker lately.

Though when I'm with my friends it's Cracked Canoe (we're all each at a caloric deficit right now), which is not bad as far as light beer goes. I've been meaning to try Mill St.'s organic lager as well to bring some variety to our light beer-ing.

Any light beers you fellas would recommend?

Making my way through my stowaways from Chicago, currently drinking Artic Panzer Wolf IIPA from Three Floyd's. I just have to say Three Floyd's makes some great beer. Also, Revolution Brewing is pretty great as well.

Wheaties is coming out with a beer.

i've had the 90. my wife's friend works for DH, actually. we get a random sixer every couple months from her, on the house. it's awesome. (though I'm not typically a huge fan of their flavored BS beers like aprihop, festina pesche, etc)

Where you live?

I'm not a big fan of the fruity beers either, but part of what makes dogfish what it is ... is the experimentation that they do. If you liked 60, you might want to check out 61, too ... IPA with syrah grape fermented in.

I made a trip to California for a few weeks and the beer scene there is pretty amazing as you would expect.

Visited the Ale Smith and Stone breweries in the San Diego area, also made it out to Pizza Port.

You can literally go anywhere and get good beer.

San Diego is amazing, and a great beer town. Went for Pho and the place had 40 taps. :nice:

I haven't heard of that one but I always try out their experimental/speciality beers to see if I like them or not. Thanks for the suggestion.

she no longer works at dogfish, which is sad. but she had to leave because she's having a baby, which is happy!

but no more free beer all the time, which is very sad.

but babies!

After a fair amount of research, if anyone in the UK is brewing a better lager than Innis & Gunn, I don't know about it. And that includes all the craft offerings from Brew Dog, Camden, etc.

Not a micro, and not necessarily fashionable with the Shoreditch set, but it goes in as easily as any of the best Munchen helles. And, let's face it, the Bavarians do lager better than anyone. And it's not even close.

I like DAB too. Big fan of the Dortmunder export style, which has a nice mineral flavour to it. Foreign brewers can emulate it if they pay attention to water chemistry. Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold comes to mind.

Yeah, DAB is good. Tough to get in the UK though BeersofEurope carry it. I've never seen it on tap.

For a nation that considers itself lager drinking hardmen, they subsist on the worst collection of lagers imaginable. I guess that just proves their hardness.

I'll try. I don't get up that end of Germany when I do travel there. We have friends in Munich and with the local brews being what they are, they don't usually have other varieties on tap. I'm there for Oktoberfest this year, in fact.

There might be somewhere in London that has it on tap regularly. I seem to recall seeing it at a place called All Bar One many moons ago, but I think it was a special thing. They used to have Paulaner regularly which was the reason I used to pop in. I'll get my fill of that at Oktoberfest this year as they're one of the usual suppliers.

Just bottled my harvest ale, with cascade and nugget from the back yard. I brewed on a hot day and didn't compensate enough for the water loss, so I boiled a gallon of water after the fact to bring it up to volume. That, in turn, brought the gravity below target. Long story short, I fucked something up and it tastes a little thin. It's still great though, just more like and APA than the IPA I was hoping for. Much cleaner tasting than the harvest ale I did last year, which came out a little vegetal.

This brings my cellar up to a pretty high level. I still have a variety of ciders from the fall, a saison that I hit with brett, lacto and brett in three different batches, a mild and the harvest ale in bottles right now. I think I might submit a cider, saison, mild and pale ale to the local homebrew clubs's competition this month, just for shits and giggles.

You made cider as well? Did you post your process somewhere? I can't remember. Been contemplating trying it out for years and never have.

My process for making cider:

Buy fresh apple juice.
Wait.
Drink.

Seriously, it's that easy. If you want you can pitch a yeast to get a cleaner tasting one. Juice on it's own will only ferment out to like 4%, so add sugar if you want it stronger. Yeast nutrient helps too, makes the yeast happier.
