Stout sounds most my style. I'll hit ya with something in return, anything else up your alley besides reds?


Let me know when you're free and we'll hook something up. I'm good most weekends, or even some weekday mornings (esp Friday).

I was never a red fan until I had the Laurelwood Free Range Red. Not what I expected from a red, it was very tasty without the overly hoppy taste. Medium body and very refreshing.

The brew pub where my son works used to be Laurelwood, so I got to try it before they had a batch of their own stuff. I liked it better than what they brew now.

<edit> The Tree Hugger Porter and Space Stout are also very awesome. Damn we have good beer in these parts.

I find that the best brews come from the smallest places. Mainly because they care more about what they are making.

The Laurelwood looks like itll be pretty tasty.




Oh and back to the original topic

I'll defend my dislike of hoppy beers.

Beer started off as just fermented grains... but it was too sweet like that, so spices and stuff were added to add a touch of "bitter" to offest the sweetness. There should be a perfect balance between the two. People these days think that the hoppier the beer the better it is. Imagine if we thought that way about salt!! You add salt to your cookie dough, but only to balance the other flavors or add a counterpoint.

SO... a small amount of bittering hops in your beer is perfectly acceptable. Hopping the cr@p out of it for no reason is nasty. I don't want to drink a bouque of pot-pori, so don't add 10 packs of hopps to the fermenter. Add a bit to the wart boiling... at the beginning!! and maybe a tiny touch at the end. I want to taste the MALT and the GRAIN and the YEAST as well as the hops.

People who think that they are too cool to argue about beer. ;)

We aren't "argueing" (sp?) about beer... we are DISCUSSING.

Yeah, Spelling is over rated as well.

I believe hoppy beer trend started with IPA didn't it. And the IPA was really heavy hops in an attempt to help it keep longer during ocean travels. I don't believe it was successful, but it spawned a new style of beer.

I think high-alcohol beers are over-rated. Love the taste of some of the bigger IPA's, but if I drink 4-6 pints of (for example) Racer 5 - say goodnight.

On the other hand, they are good for getting your date drunk. :rolleyes:

I like a hoppy beer if it's balanced. It needs to taste like something more than a ****load of hops. DFH 90 is a great example. It's pretty hoppy, but has some sweetness to it as well. And it rules.

Hops werent added for flavor at first,

Not sure if it was with IPA's, but Yes hops were added as a preservative so taht ales would last throughout longer trips without spoiling. Overtime people grew to enjoy the flavor hops added to their ales

How about you beer pansies drink a real beer and get a Dogfish Head 120min IPA? It's 18% abv and amazing hops flavor. I've had them a few times before...expensive on my Best Buy paychecks but well worth the flavor.


And for something that is overrated....Cessna aircraft. They suck...period.
