    Some enjoy super delicate English style pale ales, and some enjoy a 120 IBU Cascade punch in the face. 😀

    Well said!

    🤔

    Well, I could see how you, or anyone, might feel that way given the fun poked at the big breweries in thread. For me, its not judgment, its harmless fun.

    DBR wrath seems a bit exaggerated. Iíll just speak for myself and say if someone wants to drink and review Bud, Bud Light, Miller, Coors, etc products and share their insight here, all are welcome. Like I said, beer is like ice cream- thereís a flavour for everyone.

    If Iíve offended someone, or helped contribute/create an environment where someone didnít feel comfortable posting their thoughts on beer, shame on me. Iíd far rather have more posters involved in the conversation than fewer.

    Cheers (and thanks Reilly for sharing your perspective)! 🍻

    I learn a lot from folks here, and would hope this thread projects a welcoming atmosphere.

    DBR wrath was exaggerated, for comic effect. There is fun poked at the big boys in harmless fun (but also w/ a tad bit of judgmentalism).

    Just having a little harmless fun slightly skewering that tad bit of judgmentalism.

    Quite concur. If someone wants to extol the virtues of sugar-free (corn-syrup-free?) vanilla, more power to them. I’ll read it, consider its merits, and go from there.

I don't want intensely bitter beer face, and it made me wonder if I was just not a real beer drinker. But I do like bitter hoppy flavor when done right. That Grimm beer I recently enjoyed had hops as the dominant flavor, but it was completely outstanding and pleasant along with perfectly balanced.

    I'll look out for C hops, and I assume based on what you said that Citra is ok but not so much those others.

    Off to Stella to put in an order for my New England IPA for next Sat...
    I forgot about Citra which has more tropical fruity flavors than the other C hops.

    There's still room for that on DBR:

    Is Duvel Moortgat "big" beer? Good or bad? (not sure it they meet the publicly-traded criteria)

    How about Constellation (Ballast Point and Funky Buddha) and Mahou San Miguel, owners (minority vs majority; not sure here either) of Avery and Founders.

    A lot has changed since a year ago, its the most recent info I could find:

    I leave how you feel about the brewery as an exercise for the reader.

    Nice find. Thanks for sharing. Still no surprise that "big" beer still rules the market.

    My (simple-minded) conclusion would be that considering AB probably spills/wastes more beer in a day than the top 50ish US "craft" brewers package/sell in a year (WAG here), it's nice to know the craft industry has expanded market share from 1-2% a couple decades ago to >12% today and has continued to grow over the last several years from ~3000 brewers a decade ago (?) to >7000 in 2018.

    Never seen it but great idea by the collaborators.

    I thought Perrin made sparkling water...

    Devildeac asked for my opinion of Sleemanís since they may be owned by Sapporo now. My opinion of Sleemanís is that it was one of the first breweries that I would have tried where the beers were not all just lagers. It would have been one of my first attempts at ďbeer with flavour.Ē I would classify it as similar to Rickardís here in Canada as well, almost an in-between mega-brewery and craft with beer with taste (to me, anyway), but not a full fledged craft brewery.
    Sorry, I havenít been by as much here lately, as I have become overwhelmed with all the choices available now and have been drinking a bit less beer as well.

    2. Good thoughts on the FB Key Lime Pie. I thought about the lime/Berliner Weisse pairing with our dinner at the NC coast but the dessert idea is also an excellent one. Perhaps I'll pair an Old Stone House IPA from New Sarum Brewing in Salisbury, NC that some guests left in the fridge with dinner and I'll delay the Key Lime Pie until the end of the meal and have my Rum Barrel-Aged Pineapple Thief as a night cap instead of dessert. First world problems .

    Will you be joining us at our virtual pub next Saturday with a cold NEIPA in your glass? There should be ample room at the keyboard, err, tables.
    As hinted above:

    Old Stone House-New Sarum Brewing

    Stamped on bottom of can:

    Canned 4/28/19
    #GETSTONED

    Drink local! Well, drink what was left in fridge from prior residents while managing to exclude buschlite, bud, corona, michelob ultra and even Aviator's Mad Beach.

    Pour from a 12 ounce can into a standard pint glass yielded a light copper beverage with a moderate and foamy off-white head. Nice mixed bouquet of melons and citrus with hints of pine. The 8 anonymous hops mentioned on the can brought forth the same tastes with some rind and resin at the finish. I'll guess 60 IBUs with the ABV at 7.8%, bordering on IIPA territory.

    Someone upthread mentioned another New Sarum product (richardjackson199? Tripping William?) and I'd certainly try another of their brews in the future.

    Yes New Sarum had the Milkshake Berlinerweisse with Blueberries, Blackberries, and Lactose. It was outstanding and highly recommended.

    And speaking of berries:

    The Veil (Collaboration with Angry Chair Brewing) - Eager to Bleed - Berlinerweisse - 8% ABV - This is the first beer I've had that my wife actually likes. It's tart raspberries done right with a perfect balance to sour finish. It also has Blood Orange and sweet cherry. Pour is a beautiful heavy red. It's smooth and just sensational. So much better than that Soggy Purple raspberry I tried from New Anthem. Be careful, it goes down quickly. Hard to believe it's beer - but it is and does taste like a very smooth raspberry berlinerweisse. Highly recommended - 4.75

    I think it was RJ (199, not Barrett) mostly recently, but I have had a couple of New Sarum beers and liked them.

    After this and the yellowferrari you reviewed, I'm starting to regret not doubling my order from Veil last Saturday.

    Speaking of your wife, you'll have to take her to Wisconsin sometime to try some of the New Glarus fruit beers...

    Went down the road to Sierra Nevada for a bit this afternoon. Had an English style IPA called Bob's Your Uncle.

    Tasted a lot like the pale ales I had in London in May, but a tad hoppier and from a keg instead of a cask. Enjoyable alternative to the haze craze NE IPAs.
