Re: TLDR Beer Club



Took a trip to Three Floyds this past weekend. Came away with a sixer of Alpha King(APA), 3 Dreadnaught(IIPA), 1 Behemoth(Barleywine), 1 Brian Boru(Irish Red), and 1 Lord Admiral Nelson(ESB).

Dreadnaught is the best beer Ive ever had outside of Hopslam.

I just had the 60min for the first time a couple days ago. I liked it quite a bit.

Whenever I visit family in southland chicago area I make a quick jaunt over 3Floyds... great stuff. I too am a fan of Dreadnaught... it's a slick double, that goes down too easy! One of the best. I think AK is one of the top 5 or so flagship APA's of any microbrew I've been to, and I've been to a ton.

My last visit there late last year (The artwork behind the taps is pretty narly):

Re: TLDR Beer Club

Your post is fine, so is the kit from what I can tell. Did you also get one of those ingredient kits they list on that site. How big is the pot you're going to use?

I recently tried this beer, too, and I enjoyed it, even though I didn't review it. It's definitely around a 3 beer.

20Qt is ok, especially if you already have one around or can get one cheap. As much as I personally love brewing, I know not everyone will, so generally I advise people not to sink too much money into equipment before they know they'll stick with it, and a big pot is definitely the most money you'll spend as a newbie. So to start, a 20qt pot is fine. You'll be able to make good beer, boiling maybe 3g of wort and, when done, topping it off with another ~2.5g of water to get your full 5-5.5g of wort for fermenting. Doing that a couple times will let you know if you're likely to brew a bit more or aren't really that interested.

Re: TLDR Beer Club

Thanks for the info, yea I didnt want to dump too much loot into it until I figured out if I enjoyed it or not. I expect my first few bathes wont be great. Ive been looking for a good step by step guide online, found a few but if you could recommend one that would be great.

I could have sworn there was a beer brewing thread but I couldnt find it...

Re: TLDR Beer Club

I think I've posted at least one brew day TR-type post in this thread, if not then I was the OP so it shouldn't be too hard to search.

The best reference hands-down is John Palmer's How To Brew. He's got one version available free online, but every brewer I know, home or pro, has a hard copy at home. The print version has more info. Anywho, one of the chapters is basically a step-by-step for those just wanting to get their first batch done without getting bogged down in details or science.

All,

Sierra Nevada's XXX, their anniversary impy stout, just hit Nashville and I picked up a bottle yesterday. I'll be cracking it tomorrow afternoon, but has anybody else had a chance to try it out?

EDIT: $10 for a caged, corked 750, if the beer is decent at all it seems like great value.

Sure did, we had a bottle last Saturday.
Overall it was...very decent. I guess this was one of those cases where I read perhaps too much hype before opening it. It was a bit plain.
Inky black beer, taste of dark, roasty malts like you would expect. Very drinkable and smooth, I would be interested to see what some age does to it.
I dont want to seem too negative though, we enjoyed the beer, it was a very good stout, just maybe not a great one imho.

Re: TLDR Beer Club



what I love about this beer is the story - basically, there is NO Tremont Brewery. last summer, some guy sold a ****-load of beer to a grocery chain in the southeast and when they said "yes" he had the Shipyard Brewery make it all for him. I guess he's doing it again.

Either way, it's a good beer and fine value at about $6 a sixer.

If this is close to Shipyard's XXXX IPA then it is going to be better than most that you will buy at $6 or less.

Those witty Austrians!

A very brief translation synopsis from Svenska Dagbladet:
The European Patent Office has (reluctantly) approved the name "F**king Beer after an appeal that there is a village north of Salzburg named F**king and "of course" the innocent brewers had no other mercantile purpose in mind. In fact, the German name for lager is "Bier Helles," so the brewers are going one step further and christening their brand new brew, "F**king Hell."

BTW the residents of F**king, Austria will, as they should, receive royalties!

Re: TLDR Beer Club

Yeah, I agree, pretty good beer. It got better as it warmed, too. Chocolatey, light touch with the roast, noticeable hop character. Mine was $10 for the 750, so I'm thinking about picking up another to stash away for a year or so.

Re: TLDR Beer Club

I have another. It won't last a year or so...be lucky if it gets through the week.

I don't know how you can have the will power to leave good beer sitting there in your house. Too many opportunities to enjoy it.

My girlfriend ridicules me for this. I have about 25 different beers in medium to longer term storage plus what I have for immediate consumption. We were on our way home from the beach Sunday and I told her that we had to stop at the liquor store for beer. She looked at me increduously and said that I had a ton of beer already.
