Craft Beer Group! Sound Off And Add Your Name

I brought this up a while ago and did get some good response. But now Skinner has given the official go-ahead to see if the interest is there.

So please, if youíd like to see a Craft Beer Group on DU add your name here and lets get it done. I love beer and I love to share with friends. I know I canít share a pint with you all through the internet but as a truly global community I know there has to be others out there on DU that feel the same.

If you are a home brewer you can drop science on us or discuss successes and failures. If you are just a drinker like me iíd love to know what you are drinking, whatís going on in your local scene, and what do you think about whatís happening in the industry.

Some people prefer sipping whiskey to beer. I would suggest adding wine, but I have a hunch everything else would wind up getting lost. Wine needs its own forum.

Back in the day, used Chardonnay barrels cost me a whopping twenty bucks, today they are north of a hundred bucks. Bummer, until I visited the barrel factory and hauled away a load of free French oak shavings and extended the use of my old barrels.

in the Greenwood neighborhood, in the North end of Seattle.

It was the 2nd fully licensed co-op brewery and taproom in the US. The first was the Black Star Co-op Brewery in Austin, TX. Opened to the public about 2.5 years ago. We're also on tap in a few local pubs.

For a few years but if you are in MI Iím going to guess you mean Founders & Bells. Love them both. We only get the standard lineups here. Came this way a little over a year ago at the same time, figure itís to do with some larger distribution deal.

This year at Thanksgiving, Breakfast Stout was on my table. It makes incredible beer biscuits btw. The beer biscuit mix by Duff Goldman is what I use. Then you pick whatever beer to add to it. Breakfast Stout has been the best Iíve tried so far

A few years ago he was talking about how my cousin had started brewing his own beer and I said "That's neat, is it any good?"

and he replied without even pausing to think "Oh GOD no! It's awful!" My cousin has since gone on to make bread instead and I can confirm he must be a much better bread maker than beer brewer because it was tasty.

Gotta be willing to fail if youíre ever gonna homebrew. Lots can go wrong. But those mistakes also help a palate get better.

As much as bad beer can be real bad, Iíve still wanted to get one of those off-flavor kits they sell for the aspiring cicerone just to see what itís like as an experiment.

42. I am almost positive

that I am not detail oriented enough to do it right. I have a friend that has taken a couple local ribbons for his brews and he is excruciatingly detailed about the notes he takes on time and temperature, and relative humidity when he racks the beer and a million other things from how many oz of this or that hops to what color socks he was wearing and I just know I ain't that guy. He did it for years before he was happy enough with one to give it to someone outside his family.

I think I could maybe operate that Picobrew thing - but I wouldn't even count that as brewing. That's more like just drinking with extra steps.

91. I was living in Washington State at the time.

Washington is a big hop-growing state, so I guess the culture was more brew-oriented. Anyway, I was able to get hops and malt syrup pretty easily. I made some pretty good beer. But (responding to some of the other posts above) my biggest failure was the batch that exploded. We're cozy in the sack at 3 in the morning or so, and the booms start. Fortunately, I had put the whole batch in a big garbage bag, but even so I had brew all over the floor of the kitchen closet.

Sierra Nevada are kind of the OGís Of Craft right? I mean Sierra Nevada pale is still an exceptionally well made beer and better than most things youíll find on a consistent basis. Celebration holds up well too. I had a two year old bottle that I just drank in November when I had to clear the basement fridge to make space for a brined turkey and it was still great. I have the last two years of Bigfoot too. Gonna wait for the new one and have em side by side.

70. What part of the country are you from?

I receive it semi-regularly; so maybe we could get a bottle trade going...

82. Im from right in the middle of Nebraska

Kearney to be exact. Iíd take you up on that if it werenít so damn expensive to ship liquids safely. This is why the Tavour beer club iím a member of is such a screaming deal. No matter how big my monthly order is the shipping is 15 dollars flat.

Before I found them I did a trade with a friend from Ohio and I spent more on shipping than I did on the actual beer. Lol

63. Nice.

Ripper pale ale has become a regular in my fridge. Looking for that Enjoy by Christmas but I think itís passed my market by thus year.

Hoping they bring back that crazy mocha IPA this year. It was the star of my New Years party last year. Part of my brain doubted coffee , chocolate & IPA would work. But that beer is amazing. Like a blondie dunked in cold brew coffee.

My favorite beer is there: Snake Handler at Good People Brewing, just south of downtown across from the baseball stadium. Its a double IPA and runs about 12%!

Has got to be Nebraska Brewing Companyís IPA. Though a few weeks ago I had a limited time DIPA from a smaller brewery out of Lincoln called White Elm. It was their Inverted Galaxy IPA that had some good peach notes and pushes just over 10%

86. Those gose and other Brett fermented beers sour many people to different beers

But I love them.

All punning aside. I am in a beer club and it is one of the few places politics is kind of off limits. But I have still got some of my non-liberal beer brothers at least thinking about their beliefs. Not by preaching but just making comments.

I will participate in a craft beer group.

Have a great holiday season.

I just love to share with anyone willing to try something new. I think it is one of the best things about beer as a hobby. No one in my immediate family really cares for Beer except for my grandpa who now lives all the way in Arizona most of the year.

Thunderhead Brewing they also make pretty awesome pizza.

They can about 6 beers at the moment. I love that their flagship is a dunkel called Cornstalker since itís somewhat of a rare style. It was the first dark beer I ever had when I turned 21.

They also make some neat small batch stuff on site and rotate for the seasons. They have a real nice pumpkin saison and a winter warmer called Tiny Timís Crippling Christmas Ale

And as I saw this I just checked Tavour. Only to see I somehow missed anther shot at a Fremont beer. Their winter warmer popped up a few days ago I guess. But I missed the initial notification and now itís waitlisted.

Shows how much they are respected amongst us Beer nerds though. The postings for their stuff sell out within hours.

I'm working on the digital art for an artist friend of mine who has been chosen to have his art featured on a craft beer's label in 2018.

All I think I can say right now is the brewery is in the Pacific Northwest.

...this is gonna be, or the name. Haven't heard anything since I sent the art to the brewery, which makes me kinda nervous.

I like your "characters from literature or song names" idea, but it would likely involve paying licensing fees, unless done using public domain characters/song titles.

The artist is this guy:

http://www.Germs4U.com

I will speak to Germs and find out if there are any updates on the beer label.

As far as the OP goes, any word on if such a DU group will be added?
