St. John Brewers has come out with a Virgin Islands Tropical Mango Pale Ale. Sounds disgusting but goes down deliciously smooth and summery!

I've seen Duchesse De Bourgogne around quite a bit, it's pretty highly rated but have never tried it myself.

Just picked up a bottle of this tonight, and it's AMAZING. One of the best sours I've ever had, hands down. It's very light on the sour part, and actually tastes like a quadrupel blended with a sour (and has a very heavy mouthfeel for a sour), but is only 6%.

Pick this up if you see it, it's worth the $12 or so the bottle costs.

Had some Grey Lady, a white ale. It's got a lemony tang to it that at first I kind of hated, then I liked it more than I expected.

The Ommegang Brewery from Cooperstown New York puts out some pretty great Belgian beer.


Favorite brewery for me right now. They have done me no wrong! I love Hennepin and have made it my first ever "favorite beer."

If I can get my hands on some Mango Pale Ale for BC I can bring or if I am not going I can send it down with John for everyone to enjoy!

Had an awesome day doing our own little beer tasting and TRON watching at home this weekend.

Everything was good, but we especially liked the Kwak, the KingGoblin, and the Nut Brown Ale.

She loved the two Scottish Ales (especially the non-IPA), and I loved the Belgian tripel (can't remember the name, can't read the label).

We both agreed the HobGoblin was watery and uninteresting.

The Kwak was similar in flavor and body to La Chouffe, but slightly less sweet. It was the last beer we drank, though, so my discernment was more than a little impaired.

The most interesting thing about Kwak, to me, is its funky glass. Admittedly, as far as glasses go, it's pretty interesting.
PS: Samuel Smith's rules!
PS: I'm excited because I'm going to be back in the States next weekend, which means a mad dash to drink a whole bunch of great US beers before I come back to a country where I can't get 'em.

I don't care what beer advocate says, Mission St Anniversary Ale is fucking amazing for $2.50 a bottle. If you live near a Trader Joe's, I highly recommend picking up a bottle or ten.

Oh man am I jazzed every time this thread appears at the top. I would like to just say that I got a brewery started at my work place. Got my office to fund all of our equipment and ingredient needs so long as we brewed beer for the office and got people involved. We are currently brewing about 10-20L of beer a month with hopes of doubling or quadrupling that production with a new initiative.

Things we have brewed so far:
Double Honey IPA
Belgian Blonde
Spruce Ale
Black IPA
Maple Chocolate Stout
Centennial Wheat
Cincinnati Skyline inspired Russian Imperial (cinnamon, ancho chiles, chocolate)
Flemmish Sour

And more to come. I am learning how to home brew like a champion from my fellow co-workers. We are doing all grain, no extracts and it is wonderful. Every brewing session is complemented by amazing beers people bring in. If anyone is ever in the Cincy area on a weekend good chance we are brewing and I will invite you.

OK so I've been looking at some equipment to get into home brewing, and I was pretty much set on this:

I'll have to wait until I move to NYC, but I'm definitely buying this if I have the space.

That thing doesn't even sound fun. One of the main reasons I enjoy homebrewing so much is inviting buddies over, hanging out in the garage drinking beer, while making beer. This thing seems cool and all, but it's not for me. It can't do anything but extract brewing, plus $4600 just seems too high, 1/10 of the cost can get you an awesome kegging system. And there's just something more fulfilling out of properly brewing because you actually put some work into it.

Yeah, I get that whole concept.. but it's not like even the Trappist monks are still using buckets to brew. It's awesome that you can get the modern technology used in every single brewery on the face of the earth into your home to make your own beer. Everyone says brewing is a science, so what's the virtue in using a coal fire over a ceramic insulated, laser temperature regulated, even diffused heating element? It's not like I can't make my own extracts and craft my own beer according to my own recipes.. so if you'd rather hang out and work instead of hang out and drink that's just different strokes. I kind of like the idea that I won't do something stupid like under-carbonate my beer and ruin an entire keg.

...But that is the fun of experimenting and getting better at the very roots of beer making. There was never a science to beer. In fact beer was only discovered, and I mean literally found by some ancient chumps who walked away from their pot of grain and came back to it after a long hunt to find it had been saturated and fermented into a delicious concoction. It has only become a science because technology allowed it to do so.

Some of the best beer I have tasted has been from someone rinky dink little self home brewery kit that they have made or found on the internets. You say it is working but sharing your passion with your friends, having them have a hand in it and enjoying what you have all done is more valuable to me.
