LOL, I like a lot of 70s rock but I'm with cap on this one! But then again, I like disco, so don't mind me...
Behold the BROTHERS GIBB
The Bee Gee's. Absolutely golden harmonies!
How can you deny them that.
the roasted barley, black patent, and chocolate in mine total around 9% (off the top of my head).

I think you could give me an ESB any given day of the week and I'd be happy. Happier still if it was every day.
I just tapped a keg of ESB this past Friday night and it is Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

For me a good pils is the best summer beer. Nothing but pilsner malt, some very light noble hopping, and a good, controlled ferment. Years of brewing and drinking heavy, thick, or overly hopped beers made me fairly recently rediscover the simple joy of a good pils.
Guys, I don't know when this hefeweizen is going to get done. I'm in Miami now and most likely will be next week too. Way too much going on right now for brewing.
hey man - I am going to be judging a beer comp down in Miami this weekend - let me know if you want to meet up.
