Lucky to have tried your beer when you were in Philly, I can honestly say it's the best beer I've ever had from Alabama. Another vote! (It was actually quite good!)

If I was 31 and coming into a hundred grand to invest, I would invest it in the stock market.
I named it Jeremy. "POOOWWWER"
Love a good Top Gear reference. Sounds like a kicka$$ range, too.
Our old range was "Captain Slow".
Jeremy has so much power that I can sear the ba-jesus out of anything on power level 5.5 or 6 out of 10. 10 is terrifying. The big burner as a "Power Boil" that really should only for a large pot of water. I put about an inch of water in my 3 qt saucier... good thing I was standing there staring at it because it went to boil in about 45 seconds.
What's the best process for drying them?
Great ideas here. I like the cocktail idea for sure as I use jalapenos and cilantro in a tequila drink that is delish. I think the fist stop will be salsa to get a feel for them. I can add extra of the other ingredients if I go overboard on the hab...
Agreed, and I love Scotch - the smokier and peatier the better. But it's a sipper, especially the smoky ones. Good bourbon is much more dangerous.but Bourbon is a better drinker IMO.
By the way, thanks to everyone who has been keeping this conversation going. I recently tried Eagle Rare for the first time based on what I've picked up on this thread and it was fantastic. The vanilla and sweetness makes it go down way too easily. You wouldn't need much sugar to make a killer julep with it.
Just be sure that you never put wood mulch where you might want to expand your garden later. It takes years to break down and uses a lot of nitrogen to do so.
I'm not calling anyone a rube or implying that people aren't capable of making decisions for themselves. I also am not saying other companies don't use marketing.
Are you saying that marketing has no affect? because that seems just as specious to me.
the idea that consumer desire is the only driver of change in any industry is also specious. particularly in an industry that is more or less saturated with beer.
Regardless, I think this is an argument of philosophy and unlikely to be resolved. I'm going to bow out of the discussion. Time will tell if the ABI acquisitions maintain the level of quality and flavor that their fans have come to expect or not.
As of next Saturday I will stop drinking alcohol for a month. My liver and myself have reached this compromise after a lot of debate. This is the second year I'm doing that. I remember from last year that one day I had to really force myself not to drink the yeast starter :-(
Anyone else doing something similar? I wouldn't mind if you lied.
His whole problem, though, seems to be that he's stuck in the past. If he's as good a businessman as his degrees would lead you to believe, he would have seen the market shift and moved with it. But he seems to only want to do what he's always done.
