Have a bit of time on your hands, eh, TJ?

I will have to tell dh. He is into craft beers bigtime. We get a Beer Across America shipment every month in fact--it would be nice if this were one of the selections.

It was $9.99 for a 22oz bottle

It was the online quote from someone who said they paid ten dollars for a bottle, "and it was worth it."

That looks amazing. I love a good hoppy beer. I must ask if youhave smapled a Hop Devil. http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/victory-hop-devil/618/

Dh and I are going to a beer tasting dinner for our anniversary in two weeks. We will be meeting with reps from Rogue and sampling Glen Ale, Dead guy Ale, Imperial Pilsner, and IPA. I have had 2 of the 4 before, but it is always fun to go tasting.

That may be my favorite beer ever. I think it may have ruined my palate for Oktoberfest beers.



I have had the Ruination IPA but I found it to be bitter and very harsh.

Petition the White House to Adopt the Chartreuse Awareness Ribbon for the Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse.

"While there are many colors for various causes, (for example, Child Abuse and Autism both share the same color ribbon) there is no nationally recognized ribbon in chartreuse. Child sexual abuse affects so many children and yet prevention organizations struggle to receive the funding they need to raise awareness and educate people on all the simple ways we can empower our children, families, and communities against abuse."

can't resist

becks ocktoberfest

While it isn't a great beer it certainly is drinkable.

The amazing thing is it is $17.99 a case, and now it is $11.99 a case. :high5

Hop, we await the report from Rogue. Click here to enlarge

DH just spent $11.19 of his birthday money to buy a six-pack of this.

He will be cracking it open within the hour. We'll report back.

I love this time of year when Oktoberfest is going full swing and all the full body beers are easy to get. Pumpkin beer isn't bad...

There is a guy at my local liquor store that was pretty excited about this IPA. They pick the hops fresh and use them within 24 hours. The reviews look promising. I won't be able to review it until I pick up dd from swimming. See you in 2 hrs. Click here to enlarge

What a let down, not at all impressed.


Makes me yearn for a hop devil, and lust for a dreadnaught.

Try Sorghum-based beer. DH was so happy to fund gluten-free beer--he was diagnosed with Celiac a few months ago. $12.99 for a 6-pack at Whole Foods. He was shocked by how normal it tastes.

I'm hesitant to spend good money on good beer. Click here to enlarge, I won't be spending $12.99 on sorghum-based brew in the near future.

What did he drink before? I saw a few sorghum reviews and they were low, but I think the comparison to regular barley beers is biased.

I quit paying for airline beer when it hit $5 a can.

Oh, forgot to post about the Dogfish Head. DH said it was okay. To quote him, "There are plenty of excellent microbrews made here in the Northwest, I don't need to spend that kind of money for something that is just average."

47, do you have a brand name on the sorghum-based beer? Though I wasn't too much of a beer drinker before going GF, it certainly does have its place and I'd like to be able to have one or two if the situation called for it.

Erik likes dark beer--Samuel Smith's Oatmeal Stout was a fave.

Yipes, that's spendy (although I did point out to dh that he spent as much on Dogfish Head.) We found another gf beer that was $50 for a case. Here is the link. You have to scroll down a little -- it is their Honey Beer.

DH likes to home brew and the last few issues of Brew Your Own magazine have had some GF recipes. He isn't sure about making an entire 5 gallon batch just that may or may not turn out well. Quite frankly, I'm not enough of a beer drinker to really want him to, either.

Sam Smith has a great line of beers; the Oatmeal Stout is one of our favorites.

If you can get it, try Bell's Oberon. It rocks.

Dogfish is overrated. Hop Devil's IPA is great. I've had several Rogue beers and they were all pretty good, although one ale in particular (can't remember which) was bottled too soon and had a heavy, underdeveloped taste. It was a lot like a barleywine, and I don't like those.

Arcadia's IPA is one of my favorites. For a dark beer, I prefer either a micro-brewed dunkel, Aventinus, or Franziskaner. I also like the Czek darks.
