Can you see me from there?
btw I'm right behind you with that big b-day in April.

Congrats!  Let's get together for an old fart celebratory beer at NHC!

I do both.  I add lightly cracked beans to secondary for aroma and strong brewed espresso at packaging for flavor.

So what you're all telling me is that you CAN taste the love.
Or the flavor contribution of a 15 year old  BLUE cooler ;D


Thanks, Kate.

IMO, most people who have problems with their "backs" also tend to have problems with their "fronts" (i.e., big flabby bellies).

Prevention is key:  Strengthen the core.


I guess I'm not most people.

I think that's obvious, Jeff!

They've paid back all the money, haven't they?

Good analysis, Thomas.

IMO, recipe counts for maybe 10%, at most 20%, of the finished beer.  Ingredient choice and quality and brewing techniques are a much bigger factor.  For instance, at one NHC I tasted 7 different versions of my Rye IPA recipe.  None tasted like the other and none tasted like mine does.

and may i add, you better have damn good food or they won't come back even if the beer is good.
I don't think that's true at all, not everyone goes out to eat AND drink.  Some people just want to stop somewhere after work for a couple beers and head home for dinner.

Based on my own actions and what I've seen and heard from others, I think you're underestimating the importance of food.  Most people who go to a brewpub, including myself, won't go back if the food isn't top notch.  Sure you get some who go there only to drink, but most of the $$ is made from the food, not the beer.  As much of a beer geek as i am, I won't be there just for the beer.  There are too many other choices, at least around here.

I want to try his beers very badly. As it is I have no hope for seeing any of them in Texas. For goodness sake I've never even tasted Pliny! :-[

I think Heretic will be pouring at NHC...did you get a ticket?
Not as far as I know.

I was told by Jamil's secretary that they were 95% sure they were going to be there. I'll be getting an email shortly to confirm that but I do think he will be there pouring.  :)

OTOH, Tom has the inside line on what breweries the WA liquor commission will allow.

Good to know Denny...because I was thinking about using some Magnum for flavor additions in an APA. I'll just avoid that idea and use good old American C hops instead.

Ron, keep in mind that it's just a single data point of my own experience.  Obviously, Sierra Nevada has a different take on it.

Rather than brew something that is 1.060, brew something 1.120, for the next 60 years :)

60 more years?  I dunno if I can stand that!

Graham, be sure to let us know what happens with your back.

Hey...Happy Early Bday Denny....not trying to rush it or anything but... ;D

What are you brewing for this fine occasion?

Haven't decided what to brew yet.  Guess I'd better decide and get some yeast going!

I guess I'll find out...I hope so!
