Thread Details

I've given my opinion in many places about the beer's i've tasted. Might as well have a thread about it. Feel free to add.

Currently having a Shiner Blonde.

A bit too light for my tastes, but a good Spring/Summer lager. Light, crisp, not too hoppy. Kind of like a hefeweisen without all the yeast. I tasted a little lemon at the first taste. Prett good. On a scale of 1 to 10, i'd give it a 7.

So a few days back I was ranting here about the tax increase on booze here in MA. Went up 6.25% not more than 60 days ago. So, here is a picture from this weekend of one of my State Reps buying his booze in tax free New Hampshire.



This jerk off VOTED FOR THE TAX INCREASE! vomit

I was listening to the brewing network today. The head brewer said that IPA is 35% of their sales. That's a good chunk. Pale Ale is next in line at 25%.

Wow, I would not have guessed IPA and Pale make up 60% of their sales. I would have put Arrogant Bastard as having a much larger chunk of their sales than they obviously must.

IPA and PA are their 2 least intense beers that I know of. The only other one I can think of at this time that isn't real intense is Levitation. AB is considered to be a very complex beer. The vast majority of beer drinkers wouldn't like it. I love it. I think he said AB is their 3rd or 4th best seller.

I know, I guess I just didn't realize how much Stone is in the makret with "the vast majority of beer drinkers." It likely has to do with my region and beers closer to my area like Brooklyn and Sixpoint already taking more of that part of the market here but I think of Stone more as a complex brewery so the first thing I think of with them is their complex beer. Similar to how you don't think of Dogfish for their Shelter until you're in the DE area.
