The Pub / Goodbye R.E.M.

After 31 years, R.E.M. is calling it quits.  One of my all time favorite bands.  They changed the shape of the music biz, too.  A lot of what's going on today in the biz wouldn't be happening without their groundbreaking ideas.  Thanks,'s the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine....

Ingredients / OH MY GAWD...disgusting...yuck yuck
« on: September 20, 2011, 12:08:03 PM »
So, I'm doing a Zymurgy article and I thought I'd do some research on making hop teas to compare hops.  I've done this before with poor results, but I wanted to quantify things a bit.  Holy s***!  That has got to be some of the most vile, disgusting stuff to ever pass my lips!  3 hours later I can't get the harshness out of my mouth.  Do people actually make this stuff and put it in their beers?  Man, I shudder just thinking about what it tasted like.

General Homebrew Discussion / Ask the Experts - Patrick Rue
« on: August 03, 2011, 08:43:22 AM »
Patrick Rue started homebrewing in 2003 during his first year of law school, which ignited a passion for great beer and the creative process of brewing. He followed his passion and founded The Bruery, which began production in 2008. Celebrating it's third year in business, Patrick's role at The Bruery has changed from doing just about everything to managing a company of 35 talented individuals. Recent accomplishments include opening The Bruery Provisions, a craft beer, wine and cheese store/tasting room in Old Towne Orange. The Bruery is distributed in 21 states and 4 countries. The Bruery strives to be a leading creative force in the craft brewing world.  From now until Aug. 14, Patrick will be taking questions on how a homebrewer goes about opening a brewery and moving into the world of commercial brewing.  If you'd like to ask him a question, please email it to .  Answers will be posted sometime around Aug. 22-24st.
