If ever there should be an award for best looking beer and best photo....Ken wins!
LOL, I always say I'm a humble beermaker from the Midwest and I'm also not a photographer.  But it's beer and beer porn is inspiring.  Also, our phones are so great at taking good shots these days that you don't have to be a photographer.  I would say that I went to all the best schools but it would be a lie.  :D  Cheers Beerheads.   

You do realize you could sell those pictures. Seriously. I’d hang one.

Really?  Who would host such a thing?  Etsy?  Or I set it up myself?  I wouldn't have thought these were "suitable for framing" but it's an interesting concept.

Definitely worth looking in to.  Could be a nice side hustle.

And for those hobbyists without a conscience (like me), you can have them send you their own beer glasses for the pic so they can say it’s their homebrew.  ;D

Here's a cold IPA I made recently. Used a trio of "cheater" hops - citra, mosaic and simcoe, with the cryo versions used in the dry hop. Backbone is just 2 row and flaked rice.

I'm pleased with how it turned out! Still tasting fresh and bright after nearly a month in the keg.

Also brewed a lite American lager just cause it's fun to do so, and test my brewing skillz. Definitely clean and crisp, nowhere for any flaws or off flavors to hide! Tastes like college, pairs well with beer pong and poor decisions.

A German pils, a "SMaSH"-esque beer with 100% Rahr pilsner malt and 100% Edelweiss hop blend (hence not being a true SMaSH). I used S-189 for the yeast, and it worked like a champ -- it's in my regular rotation now! This strain drops so clear, so quickly, and is a super clean fermenter. (details on my blog for those who are curious: https://andybrews.com/2024/01/23/super-smash-pils/)

I have 100% Rahr Northstar Pils Edelweiss German Pils in the fridge right now. It’s also excellent. I am taking dry January though, so I’ll have to wait a bit to enjoy it again.

Mine used Diamond Lager yeast.

I love Diamond, too! I've got a Bohemian pilsner made with that, conditioning right now.

It looks great, Andy.  I was going to say that it has good color for a 100% pils beer.  Did the 144x60, 160x45 and 168x10 create a bit of color?  Beautiful beer.  Also, do you detect Saphir in those 5.8% Edelweiss hops?  I think mine are 5.8% and 2021 and I seem to pick it up in there .. which is unusual for Edelweiss, IME.

Thank you kindly! It really is pretty (not-so-modestly speaking). Maybe the mash scheduled helped with color? Or perhaps the malt? Rahr's pilsner malt appears to be a bit darker on median values based on their website (1.8-2.3 SRM) than Weyermann (1.4-2.1 for Barke or their regular Pilsner malt), etc., The photos also may make it look a touch darker than it really is. But I can say that it is on the deeper end of "straw" -- FWIW, BeerSmith calculated SRM=3.9, but that's not batch-specific for the malt.


I don't know my hops well enough to say if I get Saphir or not...my supply is also the 2021 vintage, so I would expect it matches your experience.

Spiced Elderberry Session Mead 6%). I got the spices right, not over the top. I used cinnamon sticks, blade mace, and cloves.

My standard 1.045 session IPA brewed with floor malted Maris Otter and some biscuit malt. This was fermented with the West Yorkshire strain.  Even though I use the cask widge on my cornies the first few pulls have hop particles in the bottom.   I wonder why :). This one was dry hopped with a healthy dose of cryo Mosaic and cryo Citra  (2 oz each) for a 5 gal batch.  Served with my Southern spouts.

This is a Saison that I'm very happy with.

Pilsner, munich, torrified wheat, cane sugar
Hallertau Blanc, EKG
WLP590




Australian sparkling ale

That looks really fantastic.

A German pils, a "SMaSH"-esque beer with 100% Rahr pilsner malt and 100% Edelweiss hop blend (hence not being a true SMaSH).

Yeah, that one too.
