Doesn't taste like tropical sunny delight right?

 

I was at the Brewdog pub the other day, most of the (really strong! lol) beers I was drinking tasted like gloopy fruit juice. I like American styled  IPAs but they have to be exceptionally brewed or have an element of malt / bitterness to them. I got gently hammered though, which wasn't difficult and the company was good.

At a friend's house for a socially-distant cookout, got to crack open this baby.  It's so spectacular on a hot afternoon. I tried to share but my friends were not fans, which was surprising becau

I'm currently drinking a Coors Light

I can't even remember the last time I posted in this thread, but Ireland has upped its craft beer game by so many levels since then its unreal.   I used to buy an American beer every time I

i've been all grain homebrewing for about 5 years now. I have a keg set up at home with 3 taps. The beers got good after about 1 year but i've taught people now who can basically brew good beers now straight off the mark. Very rewarding hobby and it does save a bunch of money if you do drink a lot of beer :D

from what i remember (which isnt a lot) IPA's kinda overdosed your tongue after a few rounds cos of the hops, plus they can be a bit heavy if you've got a pub crawl session lined up

 

a world away from the old, flat, room temperature ales/goldens/porters/bitters you'd get in British & Irish pubs just as the campaign for real ales got a head of steam up, now i read bitters are being marketed as "British Ales" in the US/Europe

 

my old man's favourite brewery had all sorts, highly recommended:

Was in a Fuller's pub earlier, had a bottle of Golden Pride at 8.5% which puts it in the category of a good Belgian triple beer. Well, took me ages to drink as it was so strong. I asked the landlord if he ever got it on tap, he said that he did but only once, and it gave his customers brain damage. Too strong for midweek pints. Strong flavour and reminded me of a nut brown.

My local waitrose has regular stocks of Beavertown Neck Oil, Gamma Ray and Lupuloid. Gamma Ray and Lupuloid are just fantastic beers (so I've just ordered a case of each direct from the brewery! Oof Oof Oof) 

 

Though Beavertown was on the news a few days ago, the report being Heineken has bought a minority stake in the brewery. Obviously certain Beer Boffins aren't happy with that! Naughty naughty. Though music boffins might like to note that Beavertown was created by Led Zeppelins Robert Plant son.

I'm a big fan of the Fuller's brewery. Right now i'm drinking the Indian Pale Ale for the first time. The best IPA I ever had.

 

Guess which market is biggest for Fullers outside the UK? ............USA but closely followed by Russia.

Just had a Ballast Point Victory at Sea stout that had been aging in my basement for about 4 years. I think the time actually made it much better because I remember it being meh and too sharp when I first had it. Mellowed our over time, got some extra flavors.

I’ve been drinking tons of Jack’s Abby, a local place from MA. But I bought a six pack of Modelo recently and chugged it.

Any of you UK Beer Dudes know of Arbor ales?

 

I've had a few of their beers and they are stunning, along with Wiper & True (also from West Country) they produce super beer.

Bought tickets to the Beavertown beer extravaganza in September, looks like half the breweries have pulled out of it though, protest against Heineken buying a stake in them? Seems kinda lame, as long as they keep making tasty beer I don't care who owns them.

Well yes indeed. Not sure where I stand on it really (I got more important things to worry about tbh).

 

It seems like Craft Ale is like 90's alternative rock. Don't sell out to a major label!!! Though in the end everyone goes buy the album from David Geffen or whoever it maybe lol.

 

Sometimes a bit of extra cash up front is needed to achieve those artistic dreams.

      I'm curious...what is your favorite food complement to beer?

      I would think anything greasy and/or salty in general would do. But I'm curious about specific foods in your guys' experience. I'm hoping to get some suggestions and recommendations so I get ideas for this summer.

      I'm traveling/backpacking. Sometimes I get bored or stuck in somewhere so I got an Acer Aspire Switch minilaptop/tablet combo to entertain me. I installed Renoise on it because I got the license already. It's a pretty heavy software for the low spec thing but I can make some simple things. So, out of boredom I just bang out some tracks, mostly with the default instruments which I sometimes edit to my own tastes. Decided to upload some of them to Soundcloud for storage and post here.
       
      I'm mastering with my earplug headphones so the mixing is probably pretty terrible..
       
      I'm calling this the CybeerTraveler 2015 series after the facts that it's futuristic and I drink lots of beer.
       
      TL;DR: I'm traveling with a cheapo laptop and making tracks when bored.

      STEAK AND ALE PIE WITH MASHED POTATOES AND GRAVY
       
      500g diced steak
      2 carrots, finely diced
      2 sticks celery, finely diced
      2 cloves garlic, finely diced
      1 large onion, finely diced
      about 20 baby button mushrooms
      2/3 pint beef stock
      2/3 pint good ale or stout
      fresh parsley and thyme
      1 tbsp smoked paprika
      puff pastry (i used premade)
      butter
      flour
      sugar
      salt
      pepper
      white wine vinegar to deglaze
      an egg, whisked, to glaze
       
      large pot
      baking tray
       
      toss the steak in flour and season with salt and pepper, then brown it and set aside
       
      make a mirepoix - finely diced carrots, celery, onion, and garlic
       

       
      put it in the same pot the steak was in, sweat in more butter for five minutes, then deglaze the pan with the white wine vinegar and scrape up dat goodness.
       
      add the parsley, thyme, and mushrooms and cook for another minute or so
       

       
      add 2tbsps flour, two tbsps sugar, and 1 tbsp smoked paprika, and stir until the flour is golden brown
       
      add the ale and simmer for a minute, then add the stock and re-add the steak and simmer for about an hour.
       

       
      meanwhile, grease the pie tray with butter and roll half the pastry out and line the tray with it, with an overhang.
       
      ]
       
      reserve some of the broth so the filling isn't sloppy (i use it for gravy for the mash), then add the filling, and brush the edges of the pie with egg wash
       



       
      roll out the rest of the pastry and top the pie. trim off the excess pastry, crimp the edges of the pie, glaze well with egg wash, and make a few slits in the middle of the pie.
       


       
      into the oven with it for an hour at 200C/gas 7!

      So I bought it on a whim, having loved the chocolate oak-aged Yeti, and this is definitely its equal. Chocolatey, dark, sweet... absolutely wonderful beer, that even a few of my friends who don't like beer seem to like.
       
      Anybody else tried this magnificent drink?
