I haven't had that beer since it was brewed in Austin.

I liked a dram of Nikka Coffey Malt at an upscale bar recently so I splurged and bought a bottle. Even though it was a bit less than double what I normally spend on whiskey, I am really enjoying this bottle.  Who knew that they could make such good scotch in Japan?

I am also impressed with your attitude.  I had a couple of bad days recently, but yours put it into perspective.  Thank you for sharing.

Our club doesn't have one, but I got one from Special Hoperations in Tampa for being a guest speaker.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Cost of a Sixer?
« on: June 25, 2017, 07:55:50 AM »
It seems like all the local craft beer around here is going for about $10 or $11 a six pack.  Twelve packs of regionally available beers such as New Belgium and Sam Adams are a better deal at around $15 of $16, but I usually prefer to spend my money on local products.
It's telling that ABI brands like Goose Island are undercutting locals by selling for $7 or so a sixer.  That bothers me.

Well we had a blast at club night.  Not sure if anyone from this thread stopped by, but we were pretty busy most of the night.  Our beers were really well received, and we have 4 of our kegs pop.  We're trying to figure out the logistics for Portland, so that we can serve again next year.

unfortunately despite sharing a "wall" I never stopped by.  Busy busy.

As I doubt KCBM will bring all that stuff to Portland, I could probably help you out next year if your club decides to try to serve again.  I'll be doing an extended road trip and be looking for a spot to pour anyway.

Which club booth was it?  I stopped by all of them for at least a little while.
Schemy was on the Nebraska side of the quad, while I was on the Kansas City side, usually functioning as bar-back keeping things filled. Most of the KC mead and all of the cider being poured were mine, though the lucky few there early got two delicious Amanda meads.
I dare say that anyone who had a Mead-hattan or mead-jito or Negroni Mead that night probably had something of mine.  8)
Is that where they had the "Covefe Hefe" the "Russian Golden Shower" and "Nobody Knew Cider Could Be So Complicated"?  I had some "Please Rid Me of this Meddlesome Schwartbier" as well as an Amanda mead - I think it was a melomel with some sort of berries.

NOLA was my first conference in 96.  (I have now been to 17 more).  It was especially memorable because it was our 20th wedding anniversary, we were staying at a B&B in the Garden District with several of my in laws, and for some reason I wanted to go to beer seminars.  We almost didn't make it to 21 years.
I love NOLA and try to go at least once a year - we stay in the same area as the convention center, the Central Business District, and walk around from there.  Plenty to do without stepping foot onto Bourbon Street.
My second conference was the one in Portland, which is also one of my favorite places.  Woo Hoo for next year!

I'm assuming you've been to the Avenue Pub? Let me know next time you're going and I can offer some suggestions. There have been 3 new breweries opened up just so far this year.
Cool.  Our last visit was January 2016, so we are overdue.

I hung around for a few minutes with major and narcout, then split for a jucy lucy when it didn't look like anybody else was coming.  Man, that tripel was awesome, major.

Good notes, Andy.  I liked your talk, especially your enthusiasm.  I also found Annie's talk entertaining and informative.

They had another one that was $450 shipped with a bunch of cans.  I am pretty sure I remember that correctly.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: fermentation: carboy or bucket?
« on: June 18, 2017, 04:50:45 PM »
If you are doing your primary fermentations in carboys, you have to allow more head space - sometimes it will make a mess with five gallons of fermenting beer in a 6-gallon carboy.  I couldn't imagine doing a primary in a 5-gallon one.

It gets much busier on the weekend, so Thursday night is probably the calmest and the session most likely to have the brewers themselves serving.  On Friday spend your night at tap houses or brewpubs in Lodo instead.  There are always lots of beer related events around town the whole week.
