My New Favorite Beer

Dear friends brought us a small present during a recent visit to the Beach. It was a four pack of gourmet beer picturing a Vintage Airstream. The Airstream on the label is even being pulled by a red and white tow vehicle similar to our Fred and Ethel. Actually, I'm not a big fan of frou-frou beer, but the label is fun to look at while drinking real beer.

Brian, a double IPA is definitely NOT a frou-frou beer. Take it from me who's son is a master Brewer and keeps me well supplied.

Bottom's up.

I have, in fact, tried the Moose Drool. As I recall, it was not to my liking even though there was a Moose on the label.

As to the frou-frou beer. My definition of frou-frou is any beer that costs mote than $15 a suitcase. My regular brand is Miwaukee's Best Light.

As children we grew up speaking German in the home as our parents were "fresh off the boat". At a camp 2 years ago my younger brother asked what kind of beer i liked as he volunteered to procure the beer. I immediately quipped that I was a great fan of Von Anderen. Translates as "from others" and, as he was buying, it meant that whatever he brought was going to be Von Anderen. He didn't get the joke and spent half an hour at the beer store looking for the brand.

A suitcase full of beer for $15? That's not frou-frou, that cheap, lousy beer.

I don't know...have you ever had Schlitz? or Rheingold? Yuuuch..
I for one am very happy with the range of beers available today. There is a Tap room restaurant near me that has a dozen or more craft beers on draft, with a new list daily.
Sure is fun. (But not cheap)

I do remember both Schlitz and Rheingold. They were admittedly a little stiff, but not undrinkable. Many years ago I lived in New Orleans, and even developed a taste for Dixie. In those days, Dixie was only sold in the New Orleans area and the adjoining Mississippi Gulf Coast. Other states did not allow it in.

"Beer--the answer to, and cause of, all of life's problems".

Homer Simpson.

Oddly, I can relate to that statement.

I love craft beers, but my daily driver is Natty Light (ok, go ahead, say it). Try a Jailhouse Brewing Company Misdemeanor Ale sometime with a burger. Good stuff.

That is only true if someone else is buying the beer.

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.
