  • A beer thread

    I am too lazy to see if there is a "The Beer Thread", so this is "A beer thread".

    What is the Backside Bar & Grill without beer? Don't answer that question. It wasn't meant to be answered. And to put to rest any questions, no, this is not a beer review nor a place for them. This is where we check out each others labels. There is only one source for beer reviews. I am glad they found a new home. http://teleskimark.myfreeforum.org/ftopic51-0-asc-0.php

    I don't really drink much alcohol. But when I do, I like to be thirsty first. Skiing does that to me. However it is especially true once the days start to get longer. There is some whiff of spring in the air that gives me a slightly manic feeling and a desire to tip back a few brews. Soon it will be spring skiing time and the season of parking lot tailgating with stuffs on the grill and of course beer. It will be a bittersweet end to a somewhat so far "meh" season.

    So what to drink? Lately, I have had this thing for Switchback Dooley's Belated Porter. It just hits the spot, especially when you let it warm up a bit. Mmm, mmm good. Dark and just the right amount of whatever it is that makes me like it. My wife and I do have a debate though. We often split a bottle. Did I mention that I just don't drink very much? She likes to mix the sediments up before she pours it. I like them to be well settled and pour off the beer very carefully. And she doesn't want to get a whole bottle's share in her half. The label suggests mixing it up before pouring. I think they are the type of folks who don't mind the occasional bongwater gargle. Sigh. I guess we have to each drink our own bottle.

    Drink up, bitches.

    Sean Lawson was kind enough to brew a special IPA called 3 pin grin for the NATO tele fest at MRG this weekend. It was rather tasty. I wish I would have remembered to pack a growler and ask if he would pour one off to go.

        Tapit IPA, brewed right here in my hometown. Gold medal winner at GABF. Stone's Self Righteous Ale for a dark beer. Anything brewed at Pizza Port San Clemente, where my son is the brewer :-)

          Lately it's been the old standby Guinness, Uinta Monkshine/Wyld/Baba, New Belguim Trippel, Golden Monkey, and the occasional $2 PBR at the ski area.

            She is "right"- brewer's yeast is good for you and no reason not to mix it into beer except for appearance in a light beer (and of course hefeweizen should appear cloudy from the sediment too). Let me know if you have any other marital disagreements I can settle (although I suspect that's it)

                ^^^THIS. What a treat. Also enjoyed the Fiddlehead IPA, and of course, Heady this weekend. Despite the hype, HT holds up for me.

                We very much enjoyed NBC Hop Good during our BC vaca:

                          danomike is on to something. IPA is not my favorite, but Icky is pretty darned good. My go-to brews are are Lagunitas Pils ("Czech style lager"), Mendocino Brewing's Red Tail Ale, Anchor Steam and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.
                          It's turns! Of course it's worth the hike!

                            There's a little corner market down the street that's filling growlers. They're stocking about 20 beers from about 7 or 8 different breweries. Here's a list of their current line-up:

                            Yesterday I had the #7 - Breakside out of PDX's Dry Stout - low ABV, but nice with a quick and clean finish.

                              Ichy is good, but you should give Mammoth Brewing Epic IPA a whirl....comes in a can for good portability, good drinking IPA (not over the top double triple IPA), great hop aroma. Damn now I'm thirsty.
