Commercial Beer Reviews / Paulaner's brewpub/restaurant in NYC
« on: September 14, 2013, 10:25:51 AM »
I posted this on another forum, but thought I'd include it here as well.
Even though I live less than 30 miles from NYC, this place somehow fell off of my radar.

I haven't had the chance to visit Paulaner's new place yet, but it's very high on my list for a visit in the next couple of weeks. The most interesting thing will be to see if these house-brewed Paulaner beers manage to capture a true Munich beer character.

In 25 years of visiting brewpubs nationwide, the ONLY one I've been in that really managed to nail a truly authentic German character in all of their beers was the late (and lamented) Zip City (on 18th St in NYC), which despite excellent beer and very good food managed to stay open for only about 6 years (maybe it was ahead of it's time??)   A distant second perhaps goes to  a Gordon Biersch place I had lunch at outside of Burbank, CA around 14 years ago. They gad a VERY German tasting Dunkles that I really enjoyed.

Here's an article about the new Paulaner place in New York

Not sure if anyone has posted this here yet (a quick search didn't turn it up)...
...but anyway, here's a really eye-opening article about AB-InBev.

Commercial Beer Reviews / green beer one can live with
« on: September 20, 2012, 07:37:36 AM »
As we all know,  "Green beer" can describe beer that's been dyed for St. Pat's day (tacky)  or beer that's indequately aged (not ready for prime time).
But check this out!  Here's 'green beer'  that is neither:

Beer Travel / thirsty in San Diego
« on: July 13, 2012, 09:01:13 AM »
Hi all...
I'm booked for appearances at Comic-Con 2012 in San Diego this weekend.
I don't have a car while I'm here, but am wondering if anyone can point me to a good beer destination or two near my hotel (the Hilton Bayfront) that I can hit after my work days are done.

P.S.  Comic-Con sure is a crazy place!!

Has anyone else heard the rumblings about Oskar Blues building a brewery in North Carolina?  When did this development come about?

Any Laurel & Hardy fans out there?
The Jennings brewery in Cumbria (in England's Lake District) has brewed up a seasonal beer in honor of its famous hometown boy, Stan Laurel.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Dick Yuengling on the radio (NPR)
« on: June 27, 2011, 12:28:37 PM »
I'm listening to NPR as I write this, a feature called FREAKONOMICS talking about family successions in business.  Nice interview with Dick Yuengling & daughter Wendy.  Also talk about the Busch family leaving the beer biz, and what went wrong.

The show is available for streaming and download here:
