Then I guess your recommendation is to brew your own? :partyhat: I have brewed beer and wine in the past but really don't have the water for it anymore. My well water is just not that good. :(

Did you make the wine yourself or was it made by someone else?

Will :wine:

I like Becks Dark, we had a half of that at my brothers bachelor party and that particular batch coming out of a cold tap on 70 degree day on the second day of three day event could possibly been best beer I ever drank. :D

Having said that I've been buying either Yuengling Black and Tan because it's pretty close and a fine brew in it's own right. Also half the cost. :D

Not sure exactly how they make it but I think there has been a lot of development in yeasts capable of withstanding higher alcohol levels. In the past if you wanted a really strong brew you had to use champagne yeast to finish it off. Samiclaus, the former worlds strongest brew, topped off at about 12%. EKU had a brew they froze and removed some of the ice to get it up to 13.2%. I suspect Sam Adams has used a combination of special yeasts and some freezing to get the alcohol level that high. This is more like a beer brandy than anything.

Becks Dunkel is a ggggreat beer to get one though the day - try a Brooklyn Chocolate Imperial Stout (10%) - a mighty tasty brew ! One of my favorite beers - which I sadly have been not able to duplicate at home.....

Just finished a Black Chocolate Stout from Brooklyn. What a great beer! Haven't tried their imperial. Ever try Rasputin from North Coast? It's even better than Black Chocolate Stout.

Not even close! :D That's what I have my Booker's True Barrel Bourbon @ 126.9 proof for ..... that makes the worst situations simply blissful!! :D :P :lol: :shots: :taz:


About 10 years ago, I took a tour of the Sam Adams brewery in Boston. They gave us many samples over the course of the tour. :D But at the end, they asked if we would like to sample .......no joke .......80 proof beer!!! Some declined ..... but not me!! It was black like Guiness, and ..... boy let me tell ya .... it's an aquired taste to say the least!! :shock: I haven't heard anything about it recently, nor can I remember the name they had for it. No doubt, it was probably made illegal in this state anyway ...

The tour guide explained the process by which it was brewed, & it was considered "beer" ..... at 40% alcohol!! Now that's the stuff for the next 3 years!! :D

Couple of friends of mine are into good bourbon. I had something similar once on a business trip. Boy that was fine,,,and I'm not really a whiskey drinker! I'll have to try some of Booker's one day...too bad Booker Noe has passed on.

Boy I sure would have liked to try that beer! I imagine they used vacuum distillation to get it up that high. If you draw a high enough vacuum you can get some things to boil at room temperature.

Yes I have ... many times. It's big. It's got a lot of flavors going on. My son found a place near Philly that has it on tap. Gotta go try that out sometime soon but till then, I get in 4 packs. To enjoy this imperial stout, you better like DARK and thick. NCBC has a 12th anniversary barrel aged brew brother, Rasputin XI out in 750 Ml bottles. Sure wish I could try that out - 11.5% :)

Kinda like a "Smutty Nose Brewery Tour"....good stuff, but after a few free samples, and calling/slurring it "Slutty Nose" our hostess asked if we were from Maine or something.......and we damned well admitted we were....just outside Bangor.... Orrington to be exact! Whew, didn't want the local folks to 'take it in the shorts' on that one.....so as Miranda Lambert would write a song about "A Little White Lie"....................
:nono: :wacko: :rofl: :doh: :cheers: :drunk: :stretcher: :secret:

.....and we were asked not to return...... :drool: :oops2:

Just a question for the 'Wanna Hairy Chest' set? Why would you want to grow on your chest, what grows wide on your A**?
Just a question.....I spend some time in Germany a few light-years ago, so all this micro brewery stuff isn't new to anyone who ever left Kansas....but the fine art of brewing CANNOT be lost....and fortunately it isn't....

Did I mention that I have a new Royall Monster Grilling Plate in route. An Anthracite heated waffle maker and grill. Serving up to 100 HPPR (Hungry Persons Per Hour) It qualified for the 30% tax credit because due to the 88.9% efficiency.

I'll keep an eye out for that one. Never seen Old Rasputin on tap...where did your son see it? Just wondering if it's one of my old watering holes. Monk's Cafe in Philly is supposed to be a great place for imports on tap, particularly Belgians, as well as fine micro brews. Never been there myself but wish I had. Kinda of like the liberty bell. I was living in the Philly area for years before I ever saw it and only did so because a relative wanted to go. Easy to take things for granted until they're gone. :(

Well, some of us wish we could grow more hair somewhere, usually not on our chests or a**. toothy Haven't had a wild one in quite some time...must be getting old :eek2:

Over in Europe, even the French and Italians, better known for their wines, brew some mighty fine beers. Was a little disappointed with the Swiss ones though, guess they're too busy making chocolate! :P

Monk's Cafe it is!

They rotate beers and there's a great selection between the two bars. Could take all week. :)
