how's the schwarzbier? I kinda hope it sucks since I guess it's tap-only.

but in the end, sorry Jim: no Black Lager, no care!
that stuff accounted for at least half of what I've ever drank from BBC. We need more schwarzbiers, not less.
How timely! Next week I will be bottling Yellowhammer's 3rd and final year round flagship beer for 6 pack bottles. And it is a schwarzbier!
You guys mention Russian River Pliny the Elder and I must agree, It did not blow my hair back. Their marketing department is the reason that beer is "so great."
Pliny is a great beer, but it is highly over hyped. Helps to remember that it was one of the very first IIPAs (some argue the first) out there - it literally paved the way for Heady Topper. Also, as with all IPAs - if its not fresh it won't live up to the hype. I drank it at the source and it was a very excellent beer. Not the best IIPA I ever had, but brewery fresh and fantastic non-the-less.
doesn't appear we have many wine makers here.
i'm going to go with the wine expert gewurtz and see how that goes.
Is there any word yet on when the St. Louis Region for NHC will be held? Just curious where it will fit compared to other midwest regions as far as planning brews. Getting close to time to brew some of the beers for NHC and that 3-4 week window makes a pretty good differnce.
That article is total BS. I wonder what the author would do on a similar situation.
I think the problem is that the score sheet does not seem to match up with the style guidelines. The score sheet shows 5 sweetness levels while the current guidelines only have 3, dry, medium & sweet.That should be OK, although judges should be told that the entrant only had three levels to pick. Still, if they don't it shouldn't be a problem.
Having the term for 'medium' changed to 'semi-sweet' presents a problem though when 'semi-sweet' has a different meaning on the scoresheet.
