Of course I enjoy a cold tallboy of PBR, especially when I'm at a punk show in Gainesville, but of of the passions I truly nerd out about is finely crafted buh-eer. I've probably tried close to 400 different kinds by now .

I just cracked open the first bottle of my 7th batch of homebrew. It's been about 2 years since I last made buh-eer, so I was a bit anxious. Turned out great, my hoppiest batch yet. Nice reddish color, huge head.

Unforutnately, I messed up when taking the hydrometer reading at the beginning of fermentation, so I can't calculate how strong it is, but judging by taste, I'd put it at just over 7%.

Earlier today I was thinking to myself "someone needs to start a buh-eer thread, and philcores the one to do it." Not to sound creepy or anything, but thats true haha. I've always kept on eye on the b9er whenever buh-eer threads came up, cause you ALWAYS had some good info in there.

Anyway, buh-eer thread asked for, buh-eer thread delivered.

I just got back from the store and picked up a Six pack of Yellow Tail from Ballast. Which I absolutely love.

Then also a six pack of Kona's Pipeline Porter. I've yet to try this. It intrigued me.

Don't know if I qualify as a full-blown buh-eer nerd, but since moving to Portland, I've certainly gained a bigger appreciation for the fancy brews. There are plenty of microbrews to go around in this town, and bars certainly pride themselves on the number and quality of their taps. That said, I'm just as likely to order a Pabst as I am some nitro bourbon-cask-aged porter. All depends on the moment.

I'll bet that Kona Pipeline Porter is tasty though! I see it at the grocery stores here all the time but haven't delved in. Let me know how it goes.

I had a couple of Kona brews YEARS ago (at a party I was invited to by A Wilhelm Scream, sorry for the namedrop), and I liked it pretty well at the time, but I haven't had any since it started showing up in Florida. I would try the porter if I saw that though.

Philip, you always deliver.

Pretty sure Steve uncovered my B9 user status to you. Glad we can re-unite.

I just cracked open one of those Kona Pipeline Porters. Very smokey flavor. Tastes good. Real good.

We live literally 4 minutes from the Stone Brewery. Kind of want to go tonight.

Kind of want to play buh-eer pong.

Yeah, that Pipeline Porter is damn good. Ridiculously smooth. Very smokey coffee taste. It's got drinkability. Brad nailed it well.

never had the pipeline porter. for whatever reason im over that dark of beers. (but then again Steve and Brad know that lately ive become a Miller Lite kind of guy. :wasted: )

when it comes to Kona brews, its all about the wailua wheat. its made with passion fruit and it is heavenly. i tried it for the first time at a huge buh-eer tasting event where there were brews from all over the place. it is incredible.

another buh-eer i tried at this festival was from a california company called skyscraper brewing co. they have this buh-eer called lug nut lager that blew my socks off. i drank a lot of that stuff that day. if you ever find it, get it! i know of one place in San Diego that sells it for sure, dont know of many others.


oh yah, and that cell phone commercial about the guy going out and selling buh-eer and he keeps calling his buddy saying "can you keep up?" or whatever... that was filmed at the skyscraper brewery in California. look closely at the beginning... the pint glasses they use have the sky scraper logo and say the name on em.

hows that for being a fucking brew nerd eh? :rockout:

remember that night you Billy and I went to stone and the waiter took forever and a day to even ask us what we wanted? then every buh-eer you two ordered was out that night? then when you finally ordered one the dude told you to be careful having a buh-eer then driving and you looked him right in the face and asked, "are you fucking kidding me?" and then you threw your keys on the table so he would always remember you were driving after your ONE buh-eer? that was pretty classic.

the onion rings at stone rule... they are like donuts. and the tofu stir fry is heaven.

I figured they probably used someone's real brewing equipment for the set, but that the logo of the company was just made up to look like cell phone reception symbols.

That dude had potential to be icebox. He was pretty patient with us. I think he probably thought we were drunk already which was funny cause I was dead sober.

We need to sack up and cab it to that place one night and just get loaded.

I can't throw stone my support. I don't like most of their beers. Their shepards pie FUCKED me up at the Brewery. I can't hang with too much spicy stuff, but that shite was a night ruiner. However, I did spend my birthday the other year, with one of those 2 1/2 foot bottles of that Oaked Double Bastard. I partook strictly for novelty purposes and I was sick of staring at a huge bottle of unopened buh-eer. It seemed like a crime.

2 and a half foot bottle? how many ounces? I've put away a 64oz bottle of Rogue Dead Guy before.

I love Stone, but it's definitely not for eeryone.

If any No Idea staff appreciate super hoppy IPAs, let me know, and I'll bring a couple bottles of my homebrew to the Grabass Charlestons show on Thursday.

I just like the buh-eer. Period. I agree, that place is a tool convention. But they got a few brews that you can't get just anywhere and I'm into that. I like a lot of the heavier beers that they make. I'm on the snobby side when it comes to buh-eer sometimes so I can get behind a lot the product there.

The food is pretty over the top. Everything is made with some crazy variant of a Stone buh-eer in it. Some of it rules. Some of it fucks Steverz up. All of it is overpriced.

I only brought the place up because of the buh-eer though. That's the draw for me.

buh-eer Week is starting here in Philly tomorrow. They have a bike and buh-eer tour of the cities breweries too. Should be rad.

Working at Stone would suck, unless you actually worked in the brewery itself. Otherwise it's just a big fancy restaurant so you're either gonna bus tables or be a server/waiter and the usual crowd there is STUPID. You'd probably make bank though just cause the food is so pricey. The buh-eer is priced pretty fair, for the most part. They have some pretty crucial brews too that you can't get anywhere but there, and they carry a GRIP of other microbrews from local companies that are super high caliber too.

I love buh-eer. A lot.

Philip, you must be a member of beeradvocate.
