I missed the explanation of "Frou Frou". By that standard,, it is all I drink.
I especially love Guinness. But also Yuengling Black & Tan,, and new to me is Samuel Adams Coffee Stout. It combines two of my favorite drinks. Now if they could work some Irish Whisky into it, I'd buy out the local supply.

I'm happy to say that my homebrews are my favourites! Been brewing "All grain" beers now for about five years and couldn't be happier with the results!

It is a great hobby too as it combines cooking/chemistry/engineering/art/gadget making and a few others!

Cost per liter is pretty low too - at least once you have written off the equipment expense!

It can be a bit time consuming on "Brew Day" though - typically takes me about 6 hours
from milling the grain to pitching the yeast. After that it is mosty just waiting for the yeast to do its thing and then to condition the beer - I usually figure on about 6 weeks from brew day to being ready to put on tap.

I keg the beers to avoid all the hassle of bottling.

Not to say I don't enjoy sampling commercially available craft beers though, especially on our trips to the US!

Brian.

PS - I saw the "Detour" for sale on our last trip tp Florida and was tempted to give it a try, bit these days I find I am getting away from the extra hoppy /higher alcohol brews and moving more to a good "Session bitter."


I think many people that get into home brewing initially experiment with making very hoppy beers in the 7+ % range - just because they can, at least I did!

But then the novelty wears off a bit and you realise that a more balanced (maltiness vs hoppiness) beer around 4-5% is a pretty darn good beer!

Black and Tan is great, but have you tried Yuengling porter? I tried a 6 pack I found somewhere in Florida, loved it. I couldn't remember where I bought it nor could I find it elsewhere. We don't get Yuengling here but if you can find the porter, I think you'll like it.

For us, anything that comes in a suitcase of 18 or more is what we call "swill".

A tour of the original Yuengling brewery is well worth while also if you happen to be anywhere near Pottsville Pa.!

I enjoy all of their beers, the Black & Tan is probably my favourite.

Black & Tan is very nice beer. I have not yet seen their Porter, but our stores here are loaded with a constantly changing array of beer, so I will watch for it. Had a great stout at my Tap restaurant last week, cannot remember the name though.

So this restaurant is a tap room upstairs, and in the back downstairs, outside, they park a different food truck every night. Great food, variety that is terrific, and then all those drafts right in the next room. Can't beat that concept.
One guy has a brick oven in his trailer, 2000 pounds worth. Makes incredible Neapolitan pizza.

Von Anderen, I am going to remember that! I brew from the grain and to the strict German standard, no Froufrou welcome here. Started brewing many years ago before the plethora of micro brews were available. I much prefer a good balance of hops and malt but the modern micro's are mostly way too heavy on the hops for my taste. I am sure at some point the taste profile will swing back to balance. Until then I will brew.

And to the label, That is wonderful!

All we drink are craft beers and home brews, ours and our friends and my family's. I've known about New Belgium's Acuumulation for years, but the Detour one up there I haven't seen. So it's an IPA, (almost everything is), what's the IBU? Is it dry hopped? What's the gravity? What did it taste like? Pine or citrus notes?

Just another gourmet beer drinker here to annoy you.

Got to find a 6-pack before we head out for our first trip of the year a week from Friday! I'll pick up a 6 of Moose-Drool too - our favorite brand!
