This is my beer of choice tonight
I like any beer as long as it doesn't have nasty floral notes.
I keep a keg of draft in the house at all times, and my bar fridge usually has at least three different styles stocked.
Moosehead Lager will always be on draft in my house.
I'm thinking about adding two more taps. I want a great stout, lager, and a bitter IPA at the pull of a handle.
I'm suprised no one is talking about this.
I just tried it for the first time on Wednesday. And I gotta say, I'm now a fan...the hype is real. Strong, flavorful, over all easy to drink. Not too hoppy, great balance.
Brewed a Red for the Seattle Pinball League's PinGolf tournament in mid-September. I brew for most of our tourneys now, usually in the style of the host's choice. Most pinball people favor Pales and IPAs, there's a die-hard PBR faction, and Strongbow is the most popular non-beer drink.
Brand-wise, I think more people favor Deschutes here in Seattle than any other upper-tier brand beer. All varieties, even!
You'll notice I don't mention CBM (Coors, Bud, Miller) and the like. Well, that's because those things are only really good for a game of Fizzball!
What's Fizzball? Glad you asked! Here you go!
Gotta love the Flying Saucer....they have it all to try!
Any beer, all beer......love it....
New to the pinball scene, very experienced in craft beer scene / home brewing.. cross over threads like this appeal to my interests
- Alesmith Speedway Stout
- Alesmith Evil Dead Red (almost time again! halloween seasonal)
- Alpine Exponential Hoppiness
- Lost Abbey Lost & Found
- Lightning Old Tempest
- hate most stone beers..
I'm a little saddened though by the number of crappy beer drinkers.. maybe you all aren't my kind of crowd after all
Ever try this one from Sam Adams.....20% Abv!
I missed that one! I've been wanting to try Sam Adams Utopias. It has a 27% alcohol by volume , but has a price tag of around 150 dollars.
Utopias is pretty good. I have a bottle of tactical nuclear penguin I've been waiting to open. It comes in at 32% or something
I've been drinking the great divide oak aged hero with Belgium yeast lately. Yum
This thread keeps coming back around, and I like beer so I will finally reply. We're lucky enough to have the Firestone Walker brewery just a few miles up the road. Their DBA (double barrel ale) is awsome. My favorite is Red Nectar Ale, best amber ale I have ever had and its on sale a lot around here. Not that in to stouts usually, but when it comes around seasonally their Velvet Merlin Oatmeal Stout is pretty darn good.
This thread keeps coming back around,
"Lazy Susan" time... Full of BEER!
I wonder if they are still taking orders???
I have tried the "Utopias" SA... It is not worth the price tag. Cool container though!
some good beer adds from down under
beer is big buisness in australia
post back some good yank adds for me
I like beer, it makes me a jolly good fellow
I like beer, it helps me unwind and sometimes it makes me feel mellow.
Whisky's to rough
champagne's not enough
and vodka puts my mouth in gear
So let me explain
and I have to refrain
as a matter of fact I love beer.
You should really give Pauwel Kwak a try when you can. But only drink it from the original glass!
But only drink it from the original glass!
Only if I can recreate some classic 'Harpo Marx' shenanigans with the glass after finishing it!
Well after five or six of those...
I wouldn't need the horn!
I will be brewing the Nuptial IPA for the October Seattle Pinball League Tournament in about five hours. It's not just a pinball tournament, it's like the Beer Of The Month Club too! But that's Seattle for you!
I do partake in a few beers from time to time. And I tend to end up brewing massive amounts too. This closet had over 250 full bottles of 7 different homebrews earlier this year. I'm down to a six pack now. I had 100 bottles of mead that I had aged for over 3 years. My favorite brew tho has to be Stones' Arrogant Bastard Oaked. I'm a sucker for anything out of a cask.

That sounds like a dream to me. If you threw in a " Homemade Pizza of the Month Club" on top of the other two I would have to make the drive!!!
Talk about the proverbial "Holy Trinity" of pinball goodness...
You know I'm trying to organize the very first Beers And Pinballs Tournament, right? Local homebrewers can bring their stuff to be judged by anyone who wants to try it, but anyone who does so has to play in a special pinball tournament for brewers only!
It started when I found out there were six people in the Puget Sound-ish area who played hardcore pinball and brewed beer. Well. Sounded like a match of two great crafts to me!
All I have to do now is find a place that will host it (and 25 pinball machines) and the First Ever Beers And Pinballs Tournament will happen!
Let me know when Beers and Balls happens!! Id love to brew a Multiball Malt Liquor for it.
Im working on a new barley wine recipe currently
I just joined and what do you know my first post is in the beer topic. I love all beer, not prejudiced at all. And hello to all you fellow pinheads.
For me, it's my states finest >>
So far fredjockson with delerium tremons and robin with Paul kwak are at the head of the class.....GREAT BEERS. Although I have never seen that kwak glass....do love!
Dogfishhead in DE close to home here makes great IPAs as well....even a crazy 120 minute IPA that will scare some people
I just finished a Saranac Summer and cracked a Bell's Oracle. IMO It's better than their Hopslam or 2 hearted. I bought a case from the brewery on their first batch, only a sixer of this year's.
Also I homebrew and still have a chocolate raspberry port wine in secondary in my closet.
Kegged about 10 gallons of a Red last night. 5 gallons will be served at the Seattle Pinball League's September PinGolf Tournament this Saturday. Also transferred 10 gallons of Nuptial IPA to secondary. Wholly Chao! IPA lover's mouthgasm! All kinds of hop flavors with NO grassy overtones! You're gonna need some sharp cheddar and a warm loaf of good sourdough or French bread for this one!
tiltwizard: Welcome to Pinside! I trust you're getting accustomed and hope to hear more from you! Stay tuned! It only gets better from here!
way2wyrd,pinheadpuckguy: You're exactly the sort of people we need in the Beers And Pinballs competition, because the main tourney centers around the scores/votes you get from blind taste-testing and pinball playing!
We could do the pinball playing virtually by camera but it would be impossible to judge beer that way.
Hoegaaden goes back to the year 1445 has a mellow taste without any nasty after bite

Let me know when the next one is, I love Seattle and need an excuse to come visit
we finally tapped out our rye IPA. Time to make a new keg o something. Im thinking Imperial Hazelnut Stout
