Got a buddy at work that is really into beer making. He started out with Mr Beer a few years back, but has invested a few hundred dollars in his setup, and makes some simply fantastic beer. Just got a German dunkel from him that is marvelous.
I may have to drink the "brand names" when I'm on the golf course - though the local course now has Wooden Shoe - ...... http://woodenshoebrews.com/
but any other time give me micro-brewery beer. And I loves me a good pale Ale.
We went to BJ's Brewhouse last month, and I sampled a few of their handcrafted beers. Quite tasty. Loved their Piranha Pale Ale and Oktoberfest lager.

"panic" only comes from having real expectations
Does that pic of the Sam Adams glass make you as thirsty as it does me?
I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.
Secondary fermenting this week. I'll have me five gallons of some irish stout by Spring Break.

I'm sure many of you are anxious to head down to the Moerlein Lager House and when you do, I'd suggest you try the guest tap Duchesse de Bourgogne if you're feeling adventurous. I think it's the kind of beer that you'll either love or despise. I'm afraid I'm in the latter group but I think it'll arise strong reactions either way. It's served in a tulip shaped brandy snifter glass and is dark in color. It's way too sour for my tastes and I couldn't finish it but I'd like to hear other responses here to see if it was just me.
Anyone going to Bockfest this weekend?
So, I met my son for beers at Claddaugh in Mason last night. Seems to be the only way I can see him any more.
It turned out that it was some whoop-dee-doo with Bell's (my son called it a tap takeover) at Claddaugh and they had all kinds of Bell's beer there. My son (who is a beer snob and drinks beer way above his station in life) was ecstatic and orgasmic.
Had a Bell's Black Note Stout, Expedition Stout, and an amber ale. I had another beer in there somewhere in a little goblet but I forget what it was. Evidently the Black Note Stout was a big deal. They weren't selling it but if you schmoozed your waitstaff or barstaff, they gave you a ticket for it (which we did a couple times). Potent stuff.
The problem I find with the Stouts, ales, etc. is that you have two of them and your feeling little pain and all that hop leaves me with a headach the next morning regardless of how many I drink.
And yes, I'm not a big fan of the hoppier beers so I stay away from the IPAs. Zach is though.
And yes, it got a little drunk out last night. I called my wife up to come get me. That went over big.
Lets try this. Newly turned 21-year old, what beer should I try out here in Columbus for a nice drink sitting outside in this beautiful weather over Spring Break?
