Well, my stout finished and came out pretty good. Light on ABV, but very tasty.

    Yuengling's original plant in Pottstown (or is it Pottsville?) Pennsylvania is worth seeing. Unlike most brewery tours, in which you see stuff from a distance, Yuengling's tour is more of a "step here, don't step there, that bottling machine will rip your arm off, don't bang your head on that pipe, it's about 250 degrees" type affair. In other words, it's awesome.

    The brewery tour at Troegs in Harrisburg is kind of like that.  Plus you can buy cases of what they call 'Scratch' beer, which are basically minimum size batches of things the brewmasters are trying out.

    Looking good Jaeger.



    I have been having some Franziskaner Weissbier, a hefeweizen, with dinner as of late.  It's ok, but I think I like bolder beers.
    CaliforniaThere are many like it, but this one is mine.

    I've been drinking three beers primarily over the last few weeks.

    1. Dos Equis. It's everywhere, and delicious on draft with hot wings.

    2. Leinenkugel Summer Shandy. Light and refreshing but flavorful with a lemonade finish for a hot summer afternoon.

    3. Shiner Ruby Redbird. Very similar to the Summer Shandy, but with grapefruit instead of lemon. Very interesting.

    Just finished a twelver of Newcastle Founders Ale.   :thumbup1   Not as hoppy as I thought it would be - clean finish.  Great with food.

    Actually, the term " finished " refers to having consumed the last of something.  To infer that the entire twelver was consumed in one sitting would be incorrect.  That only happened a few times when I was in college.   :facepalm

    I had a friend in college that drank a keg.

    A keg. By himself.

    In one go.

    Granted, that "go" took him the better part of spring break, but it was continuous and uninterrupted. See, his birthday was on the last day of classes before spring break, and he had recently broken up with his girlfriend, so he had no real plans. So, he bought himself a keg for the apartment kegerator, positioned the kegerator next to the recliner, made sure the remote had fresh batteries and that the Nintendo was hooked up properly, and proceeded to pickle himself until it was gone. Drinkdrinkdrinkdrink sleeeeeeeeep wake up pee drink drink drink drink lather rinse repeat.

    For a week.

    Then he sobered up and went back to class and graduated cum laude.

    That sounds like a lot, but it works out to somewhat less than a beer an hour over the course of a week.  Too much for a neophyte, certainly, but easily doable for a hardened drinker.

    I wouldn't try it now. If I tie one on, I feel it for about two days. And I'm only good for about 6 hours of beer sipping anymore. 8 if I really push it. But as I get older I pay more and more for it the next day.

    That's only for the military.  Civilian rules is 8 hours.

    Thread necromancy!

    I've been drinking frou-frou beer.

    Rogue Voodoo Doughnut Maple Bacon Ale: Lots of maple, little bit of smoke. Not unpleasant, but I think it was only really worth the price of admission for being able to say I've had baconated beer. Actually does list bacon as an ingredient, though.

    Southern Tier Imperial Pumking: I love pumpkin pie, I like beer. Pumpkin beer seems like a sure winner, but the ones I've tried were always too subtle for my (seriously) unrefined palate. Pumking, though, is a pumpkin beer that tastes of pumpkin pie. No joke. I gotta go see if I can scrounge a few more this weekend, and ration them out through the holidays.

    It lives!  It lives!

    I highly recommend the New Belgium fall seasonal Red Hoptober Ale.  It has three varities of hops in it and 6% volume of alcohol.  If you like hoppy beer what are you waiting for?
