Beer is my friend.


Recommended Posts

I grabbed a 6'er of Celebration the other day, as well. Just last night went to a local bar that had a Bruery tap takeover. I got on draft Melange No. 3, Humulus Lager, and Or Xata. They also had Kuhnhenn Double Rice IPA, which was awesome.

 

How was Melange No 3?

 

I had Chocolate Rain a few weeks ago and thought it was good, just a little sweet. I have a Grey Monday coming in trade, so I'm excited for that.

I'm not the biggest Melange 3 fan, but it's growing on me. I've had it like 4 times now, and I've ticked up my rating from like a 2/5 to a 3.3-ish. (I try to curve strictly to a 3 average.)

 

I LOVED Chocolate Rain. One of my favorite beers ever. I thought it outclassed Black Tuesday at a side-by-side. We had Melange 3 there, too, which I easily ranked 3rd out of the 3 in that group. Grey Monday sounds awesome.

 

I'm going to Vermont on Friday. Woot!

Nice! Don't bother stopping at Alchemist...

 

I'm going to try and get another bottle of Chocolate Rain and do a Black Tuesday, Grey Monday, and Chocolate Rain tasting.

I'm going to try and get another bottle of Chocolate Rain and do a Black Tuesday, Grey Monday, and Chocolate Rain tasting.We didn't! But I did get a 4-pack at a local shop. What an awesome trip. Then last night we went to a tasting and had Rare, Bourbon County Vanilla, Pappy Black Magick (tops of the night for me, just absurd), Chocolate Rain, Life is Like, Barrel Aged Speedway, and more. It was nuts.

Found my favorite beer: Golden Monkey. Enough alcohol to actually do something, and a very nice taste (fuck IPAs). Delirium Nocturnum is also a great Belgium beer (and had a ton of fun with their temporary tatoos at a beer fest here), but $20 bucks for a four pack = fuck me side ways. Another solid Belgium is Three Philosophers, but I prefer their Rare Vos amber ale even if it's low ABV.  OBP2 is probably my favorite Florida beer I've had, but I haven't paid too much attention to local stuff (I really need to go to Swamphead and First Magnitude)

 

The calories of beer generally makes me stay with bourbon or rum, though. Two Golden Monkeys = 600 calories = yeah I don't want a beer belly. And the cheap stuff there is good enough for me. Four Roses makes some great sipping for 15 bucks...

I would just like to say that I am amazed that one drunken post from 8 years ago is still running strong. I also must say that I really enjoy what it has become. I love swinging in here from time to time just to see what new and delightful beers I need to try.

I second the Golden Money. My boss got me into those. I'm a lightweight as it is when it comes to alcohol, but two of those and im practically passed out.

I'd definitely suggest checking out Delirium Nocturnum. It's more expensive and harder to find, but it's super tasty. Tremens is their more famous beer, but I think Nocturnum is light years better.

I've had the Tremens. I like that one a lot too. 

 

I was at Funky Buddha Brewery on Saturday and they had a pretty good Tripel. Also one that tasted like PB&J.

So, this summer I finally took the plunge and started brewing my own beer. Using kits for the time being until I get the hang of it, but it was a lot of fun. I brewed a summer ale at the time, made a few minor mistakes, but nothing major. It still came out tasting great. Today, I ordered kits for three different IPA varieties. I love IPAs so I think these ones are going to be a lot of fun.

I've wanted to try myself but can never seem to find the time. 

 

It's (or at least the first recipe I tried) requires surprisingly little time. Set aside a few hours one day and then set aside a few hours a month or two later.

That's why I haven't been able to. Business this time a year is hectic. I'll make an attempt in the fall.

Was it hard to make a beer? Does it include a yeast?
