Erm... tough call.

I liked the Paradox more than the Parabola.

The initial taste of the Fred from Wood Flanders was great, but after a while it felt like it needed some bite. The Adam grew on me because the initial sip was all bourbon barrel. The Ommegang was wunderbar.

About the only one I can say that I categorically didn't like was the Grand Teton - too candyish.

Something's wrong with me.  I saw "ban hammer" and read "banana hammock"  :)

That support group is next door, sir.

Maybe he's just holding there in tribute of Ronnie James Dio. (Very devoted fan,right?)

I think I may just brew an Imperial Mild.

You wouldn't be the first.

ETA: Actually, there's an "imperial"esque mild recipe going in my next article right now, but it's not as absurd as it seems on the face of it since Mild's really did use to be strong beers, they just weren't very hoppy or aged.

I agree that the whole "lock-in" process that some states enforce against a beer is a crime.

Just a note.. checking through our logs, I don't see anything having been archived and run through the pole, but who knows what the gremlins are doing in their spare time.

And yeha, I lost posts too.. I agree, let's blame Denny.

Given the screaming mimi fits that the distributors put up whenever states put in limited self-distribution, I can't see that happening. Plus even here in Cali where if I'm reading the BA site  on self-distribution correctly, many breweries at some growth point throw in the self-distribution towel to focus solely on the brewing

When in doubt.. use the Pub.

There's a "Howdy Everybody" thread in there.

Of course, be careful, post in the wrong place and the wicked evil moderators who lord over this place may just break out the ban hammer. (Hey wait, do we have a ban hammer? :) )

Welcome to the group! Therapy sessions start at Beer O'Clock

To add to this conversation, on another thread I read someone attempting to brew an Imperial Pilsner.  I wondered about the Imperial and thought, isn't that just a Bond Bock, or a Helles.  I have never heard of an Imperial Pilsner, is this just a fancy term used to stimulate curiosity?

There's a few out there. To my mind, an Impy Pils has more strength than a Maibock and a hell of a lot more hops. So while in general "Imperial" and "Double" are just eye catchers, this one does indicate something a little different that you won't typically find even with the "Strong" European Golden Lagers.
