My newest brew, which I consider one of my best, didn't have the response I was hoping for but I think peoples taste buds were getting tired after seven other styles. It was the first hoppy (only one actually) brew tasted and stood out I THOUGHT!!! Who cares - I love it. It's not a competition.
BTW - I have thought of a way for you to get an assorted case of beer from me (or six packs . . whatever). You know I can not sell it, I can only give it away. But we all know it costs money to give beer away, home brew is for personal consumption. So what you can do is buy the ingredients!! If interested - let me know. This paragraph will disappear in a matter of hours as the Fed close in on me.
Funny thing about my hoppy brews - every time someone tastes one they say "ooooo it tastes like Hopalicious " Well - yea - it has hops in it, totally different kind and flavore but it is hoppy for sure.
Speaking of Hopalicious - did you know Ale Aslyum calls it there PALE ALE??? They have a new IPA coming out - My god if Hopalicious is only a Pale Ale their IPA will be solid hops. OH - and their Grand Cru is just a wonderful beer. I have put a Grand Crew in my pipeline - I must try to make one. I never had a Grand Crew before. A Grand Crew is a Belgian Strong Dark Ale here is a description from Beer advocate.
Belgian Darks offer a massive range of characters. Colors play within the amber to light brown to deep garnet hues, with thick, rocky heads of great retention. Aromas can be anywhere from traces of yeast, spiced, malty, floral and even slightly intoxicating (that's for sure). Flavors from dry and spiced, to sweet and malty. Most have a low level of bitterness.
Geez - that is like saying we are going to get betwen 1 and 9 inches of snow. It can be dry or sweet. Nailed it!!
So the Trailer for PE will be attached to Watchman. DJ and I were planning on going to see it next Thursday but now I find out "Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience" will be out at the same time. What to do, what to so. I hear the opening scene you have our three heros ambushed by a group of squealing girls who surround their car and they are chased through the streets of some city.
AWESOME!!! It don't get no better den dat.
I wish Public Enemies was in 3D, or even 4D smellivision. Did we skip right over 2D? Wait - it was just explained to me 2D is height AND width, so 1D would not be a very good thing to watch. What would be better, height or width. Probebly does not matter. OK - it's the home brew taking hold now - sorry.
OK - putting it to bed.
On this day in history in 1827 a group of masked and costumed students dance through the streets of New Orleans making it the first Mardi Gras which translated is Fatty Tuesday. With that in mind I have decided to call my Scottish Heavy - Gros bâtard. (sorry balderdash, I can not name a beer Dirty Jock).
And of course "DO YOU BELIEVE IN MIRICLES?" happened today in 1960. Weird - I had always thought I was with a bunch of people watching that but I would have been way way young. Seriously . . . I've never realized this before now. WAIT - - - - - - - AHH HAAA the one I'm thinking about was in 1980! WHEW - MAN I was worried there for a second. I was in some very serious confusion.
I better stop right now!! I have important work to do on a 300 million dollar computer system.
Have a great weekend.
