Hey, Bass Ale from the keg is pretty good
And even in the areas where Baltic Porters / Imperial Stouts should be historically hip, they try to produce same modern IPAs and spiced soups everyone are brewing.
Many times craft ≠ roots and history.
I am particularly annoyed with all the IPA offerings pushing out all the beers that used to be available. It would be one thing if people could drink that crap and enjoy it without ruining the beer menu for the rest of us who like like lagers, Porters and other beers that are not hopped to hell.
I use to live very near Ballast Point Brewery. They have too many beers to keep up with. Here's a few different types.
I took a 1/2 gal growler to try a Sour Blackberry brew. I tried very hard to drink it.Blah! Poured it down the drain.
I get the frustration, but the market is what's driving that. And IPAs are what sell the most at this point.
"if people could drink that crap"
Crap? That is a very offensive opinion. And I beg to differ!
uh, yeah, really. In situ.
I suppose I could say that, no, I just throw out any old bs, hoping some poser from Santa Fe can mansplain it all to me, but maybe I won't.
Thanks for your attempt at edification. Have a fine weekend.
Mmm.. Rochefort. Makes me wanna travel to Belgium again..
Most people don't realize that the reason for the explosion of ipas is because it's so easy to brew. An IPA can be brewed in about seven days. A good lager takes 6 to 8 weeks and if you mess it up in the process you pour it down the drain. If you mess up an IPA, you just dry hop it call it some other stupid name and sell it. I'm a bit ticked of by this because, when lagers were popular, they didn't shut everything else out. The IPA craze is just another example of "the emperor wearing no clothes." It really sucks when you can't find a lager on tap anywhere.
Different strokes. I will.
I see that beer everywhere. It’s not terrible, buts it is definitely a gimmicky one. The things that annoys me is that they also make Bombadier. It is a great English ale that is really hard for me to find.
Yeah, I think "craft" beers are kind of at a low point right now. Or maybe I just don't like sours, Gose, citrus-flavors, ANY added flavors, or WAY overhopped ales. Sometimes you just want to drink a good beer that tastes like beer and not have to obsess over it. Give me a Sierra Nevada, Deschutes Porter, even a Brooklyn Lager 90% of the time.
My favorite place to drink beer at the moment is a Belgian-inspired gastropub (where the food is truly great) that only serves great Belgian ales. Everything they sell is delicious. My wife loves this dark, cherry infused trippel that I have to admit is incredible, and absolutely nothing American comes close.
Its coming, canned craft beer really took off here in last ten years
Meh, they're easier to brew than a good lager yeah, but harder to do well than amber ale or blonde ales or the other half assed crap lame Dad Beer brewers were phoning in before. Also, hops are expensive, an IPA costs a good bit more to make than the beers it largely replaced, so its not purely an economic choice. In the end its not the the brewers who decide what sells anyway, its demand and IPA, especially hazy IPA, is what is moving right now, like it or not.
Ironically, a lot of craft brewers have been wishfully predicting for at least the last ten years that craft lager would be the next big thing, but it still hasn't happened. It's made some headway in the last couple of years but it's hard to imagine it ever blowing up like IPA has, though I'd love to be proven wrong...
We are talking about beer, sorry
Weird 'beer' for sure!
Surrender Dorothy beer based on a sign painted on a Baltimore and Ohio RR bridge crossing Route 495 in Kensington, Maryland in front of the Mormon Temple.
Does Chimay Premiere qualify? If so color me weird! The Belgian monks know what they're doing!
Give me a Miller High Life, or Sam Adams or Guinness, or some German style beers...don't care for too many "Craft Beers".. Unless i'm out for dinner.
I'm a volume drinker, can't drink 15 or those hoppy thing 8% beers... I've tried.......
Are you saying that Coors Light is a weird beer, or just that you like it?
