Uuuugh. Don't need reminded that deer season is right around the corner. All these damn red neck bastards riding four wheelers around and chucking beer cans and chip bags all over the mountain. Pick up trucks rumbling down the road all weekend and having to wear orange to hike outside my door. Sucks.

I happen to love mariachi. but apparently I can't spell pinnacle.

that's ok you can tell me about polka and I'll tell you when you've misspelled pinnacle

I have a plate of tortilla chips and guacamole, and a chilled glass of reposado in front of me as I type, so at this point, I'd be rather down with that.  Sad that it is sort of "food music", much like German oompah band music.  In the right context its spot on.

I never hated polka or mariachi, but I wouldn't say that I actively pursued listening to it until a year ago or so.  Now I have a mariachi channel on pandora that I listen to with it in shuffle mode.  I seriously like brass and always have, so polka was a little bit easier.

Interestingly enough (for me, anyway) Mariachi music was influenced by German Oom-pah (aka Volkstümliche Musik also commonly referred to as polka) in the same way that Mexican Beer was influenced by German beer due to a large contingency of German immigrants to Mexico in the 1800's.

All of you are such fools. The thing you all fail to realize is that music hit it's pinical with polka and has been spiraling down hill ever since.

Yep, that's how I grow up yeast for high gravity beers as well - by starting with lower gravity beers.

IMO Munich is more aromatic.

Absolutely - a good bock or doppelbock recipe can be 100% munich to the gravity specific to the style. What you have is not a traditional bock, but as Blatz says, is a blonde or maibock.

I had high speed 7 years ago when I lived in town, plus I have cable modem at the brewery and I worked in an office with high speed access up until 2 years ago. I did fall off the turnip truck but it's been a while.  :P

Alta and kolsch are traditionally filtered in cologne and dusseldorf so you will want to lager and fine for at least two weeks.

$39.99, no installation fee. The $600 installation fee was the stopper for me. Up until now.
