Eugene is correct as usual. Certain styles of beer should be served at certain temperatures, especially if you order draft (which is, in all honesty, very difficult to do in a brewhouse. I had glycol lines run through my pipes to keep the lower alcohol beers crisp and fairly cold...and my porters and stouts went to shit. Thank FSM I'm not in that business anymore).

Has anyone here ever had a properly poured Guinness? It takes a fucking half hour.

So it goes.

I prefer most of my beers warm. Brings out the flavors.

ROFL, yeah. The first time I ordered one from tap I thought the bartender had forgotten about me... I'm not sure it tasted better, but the gradient was amazing.

This is particularly true of darker, full bodied beers... the type of beers that actually have 'the flavors'. But still... cold drinks are refreshing.

You know, I'm in the midst of a mental battle right now. I usually have a couple of 6-packs of Sierra Nevada in the fridge, but today I look and I'm met with a couple 6-packs of Beck's. You know what? Not fucking bad. At all. For a nice crisp beer anyways.

An aside:

When I bought in to my brewery I had high hopes of possibly being able to make beers myself in my basement (as homebrewers do). The fresh yeast would give me an advantage to be sure, and I wouldn't have to rely on the hop pellets that most homebrewers do. We do centercut mostly for the domestics (imagine...4'x3'x2' cardboard boxes coming in from the West Coast filled with fresh, lovely hops... opening them up is as close to heaven as you will ever get), and the import stuff was pelletized but done right. With all these things to my ultimate advantage....do you know what I eventually realized? I am not fucking patient. At all.

I eventually came to this conclusion: I am a chef, not a baker. Truly, I will babysit a marinara from boil to serve, ever tasting and adding and stirring. I just can't leave my hands off the goddamn thing...but give me a homemade loaf of bread or something that needs to be left alone in the oven...I'm a goddamn mess. And God forbid your oven doesn't have an overhead light for me to peek in on. You might as well add an hour to the cooking time with all my peeking and letting the heat out. The only thing I've ever successfully baked was chocolate chip cookies.

So it goes.

Yeah, beer making is all about the setup. Then waiting. A lot. There's no rushing it.

Yummy. Send a box my way. Just attach a load of helium filled balloons, and I'll catch them as they float by.

Aleut beer:

Spear one walrus; hollow out guts, leaving skeletal structure intact and upright, still covered by outer skin; throw a few bushels of small dead birds into walrus carcass; sew up skin; leave birds in carcass for a few months to... uh... ferment.

I have no idea what sort of fluid is brewed up via this process. I would probably choose to die rather than taste it, however. *shiver*

Well, yeah. But the bus *I'm* on is one of those fancy, double-decker Alaska tourist buses. The top level is pretty much all glass - both roof and walls. Comfy seats. Drink service at your seat. Ohhh, yeah!

And I'm told this one has a nifty sauna in the back! Woot!

I'm gonna have to escalate this up to my manager. Maybe my boss can call your boss, do lunch, get together...


No, wait, that's a VERY BAD IDEA(tm).

Hey! Talk about beers or get outta here!



Anyway, I've always been partial to fruity beer; I find them "fun".



(Black Dog Honey Raspberry Ale, quite very yummy)
