Green Flash is a fantastic beer, thanks for pointing out that recipe.  I'm going to add it to my brewing schedule.

I'd be happy with a nice porter and an IPA.

Is S-04 good in an English IPA?  I hope so because I plan to brew one with that yeast this weekend.

Look at the enormous head on those beers that girl is carrying! I'd be in an outrage!

I'm going to Millstream Oktoberfest in the Amanas this friday to celebrate.  I don't plan to be very coherent the next day.  My dad's band is playing and friends and I are going to party and drink good beer.  Prost!

As the great Bill Hicks would say, "You're wrong, get over it!"  

Absolutely no BMC taps next to your craft beer that you worked so hard to perfect and get to the level of opening your very own brewpub.  The furthest I can EVER see this going is at least offering that swill in bottles.  
YES, I will drink a BMC once in a while, but NEVER would I put that stuff along side my beer.  And most brewpubs offer a light lager anyway, give the customer that and if they don't like it, don't charge them.
I see selling out all over the place.  Just giving up on opening people up to new beers by offering BMC to people who haven't had the chance to try good beer before.  Maybe selling out is okay with you but it sure ain't with me.  I don't see dollar signs everywhere, I see opportunity to open people up to new beer.  And if they don't like it, well, you lost a customer, but that doesn't mean you won't gain several more by opening someone's eyes.  People will drink your beer.  If you build it, they will come.

I would definitely serve BMC in my brewpub. It’s not about being uppity, it’s about the bottom line and I would want to appeal to as many people as I could. This is an easy way to do that.
This, children, is called Selling Out.  Keep your eyes on the prize, kids $$$

I've been to brewpubs like this and I just don't get it.  It makes me angry actually.  Why would a brewpub do that?  Most brewpubs make a light lager of some sort.  Why wouldn't you just tell the person, "Well, we do have a light lager that we brew, here's a sample."  Instead of giving up and immediately pouring them BMC.  I can see having those beers in bottles, but having taps for those beers right next to your delicious craft beer is an insult to the craft beer movement.

I brewed one last weekend.  OG was 1.071, damn thing attenuated down to 1.010.  8%abv!  That's stronger than I wanted and it's a good thing I felt like I overhopped it.  But I thought I'd "try" this new fad that everyone seems to be on.

Sad story, Cap.

I absolutely love meat.  I don't eat that much red meat, to be honest, but I really enjoy it.  I'd rather not see the slaughter of the animal part, that'd really make me not want to eat the meat at all, and it's something I enjoy so I don't want to ruin that.  I don't like the meat industry, it's brutal and cruel.  But what are we to do?  Farming is more harmful to the environment than the meat industry with fertilizer and runoff into rivers.  Also it takes more space and we are running out of space.  It's not possible to sustain our existence on organic farming.  I think eating meat is a necessary evil.  I would just like to see the industry make a shift more towards free range or just having happier animals instead of keeping them in CAFOs.
