    What Beer are you Drinking Spring 2010

    Ok this time I am actually not drinking beer at all. I am rather thinking about drinking beer. It is the time of the year that Mai Bocks are fresh and full of flavor and I will be drinking a Sprecher Mai Bock when I get home. I also need to crack open the Kasteel Double I have at home as it was bottled last year on todays date which just so happens to be my 10th Wedding Anniversary. Gotta Love Spring Gotta Love Beer

    Re: What Beer are you Drinking Spring 2010

    I'm brewing up lighter ABV summer beers now to start to get them into rotation. I have the recipe that won the Stone competiton which will be brewed later this summer, the West Coast Bitter. Guy who won lives a few blocks from me. That's going to the keg this Saturday.

    Lighter hoppy, caramel red ale will be brewed this weekend and in 2 weeks a single roasty stout. AFter that I'll probably be back to brewing the WCB again. Uses a TON of hops though...

    I need to upgrade some of my brewin equipment to start looking at 10 gallon batches.

    Had a beautiful glass of Paulaner Salvator (doppelbock) with some brats and German potato salad for lunch. I'll be digging lots of bocks this spring as we head towards summer.

    Re: What Beer are you Drinking Spring 2010

    Last sat while brewing I had a Lost Abbey Hot Rock Lager and a Deschuttes Jubel 2010. Also usually pick up bombers of Alpine's Nelson, just love that beer.

    Waiting for my west coast bitter to finish carbing up so I can move it from the garage kegerator to the kitchen kegerator. Hoppy red ale "Goofballs" in the fermenter now.

    Re: What Beer are you Drinking Spring 2010

    I just picked up some Kasteel Donke Belgian Ale. This ale is made in Van Honsebrouck, Belgium at 11% alcohol. After I got home I found, in very small print, the serving temperature, 54 degrees F and the bottling date which is 2/25/2009. Oh well, so much for fresh. I really like a dark beer and hope it hasn't gotten too stale after all this time.
    Often I am forced to deal with the fact that I prefer bourbon over dealing with facts.

    Belgian Darks usually age well, you might be in for an unexpected treat.

    And, with that much alcohol, it's probably not going to be worse.

    The oldest beer I've had was a probably twelve year old bottle of the Sam Adams Triple Bock, and it was fine. It's not your average beer, though.

    Re: What Beer are you Drinking Spring 2010

    Thanx Tim and Craigthom! You were absolutely correct. The beer tasted like it was made yesterday. It was velvety smooth and full like melted chocolate with buttery dark brown sugar. It was very sweet and went perfect with the Korean style meal I had with it. I don't think I could drink several in one sitting because of the level of sugar (and alcohol) but it was definitely worth bringing home.
