Same for me, this is always the best I can get around here at Mexican restaurants.

He never homebrewed. He got a job at some mid sized brewery somewhere as a flunky and moved up the ladder. Unfortunately it's the only brewpub within 200 miles of here, but since it's 40 miles away I rarely ever go there anymore. He just doesn't want to be bothered by the dozen or so homebrewers in the area that might want to buy malt or hops.Their prices are at least twice what I was paying at the brewpub down the road(40 miles) but the new brewer there has no love for homebrewers and will not let us piggyback on his malt orders like the 3 previous brewers would. After 10 years of buying ultra cheap malt I may have to pay retail again. Last year I bought 4 sacks, 210 pounds and paid a total of $102. I should have bought 400 pounds.
A brewpub brewer with no love for homebrewers? I think I would find a new place to take my business. Was this person a homebrewer at one time I wonder?
This stuff is anything but good. Opened a bottle at thanksgiving (good thing I had 8 other varieties of beer available) I'd have to say the red mold took hold.I just read this to my wife and she spit wine onto the wall she was laughing so hard. Thanks for giving another great idea of a fermented beverage I don't need to make.
It tastes like I took a bunch of pineapples, tossed them in a black trashbag, and put them out on the curb in the summertime and then drank the nasty juices seeping onto the sidewalk a week later. Out of love? (curiousity?, pain?), I will try another bottle at some point, but wow, I can't see this stuff improving much.
Worst case scenario, sour it.
