They probably had no idea what you were talking about.

Split a bottle of Hair of the Dog Fred with lunch today. Tasty as all getup. There's nothing like grabbing a hot dog for lunch from Otto's on Powell and realizing that they stock Fred. Great to be back in the NW.

As an aside, I'm now living out here on the westside (beaverton/hillsboro, aloha) - are there any good pubs out here with a solid tap selection???

I'm not sure if I believe you really had fresh salmon yesterday....surely you would have offered some to me!! Sad

That's a great list

It just seems funny to me, that out of all the beers out there, several brewers (New Belgium, Stone, Sierra Nevada) landed a handful of beers in that list. NB 1554? Top 50? Hmm.

Alternate hop heaven

Post by Geezaldinho on Wed Oct 12, 2011 4:07 pm

Back from the wilds back East. ( semantics- everything East of Troutdale).

After the BYU game that didn't go so well, we hauled off to the wilds of Colorado ( if you call the yuppie heaven of Durango " the Wilds". Best Tibetan restaurant I have been to in years. Saw the Fort Lewis College homecoming parade, too.)

Good beer there, but hops must have to be brought over the border.

On the way back, we stumbled into the Moab Brewery, where a most unexpected surprise came upon us. ( remember, this is UTAH)

They brew a Scorpion Pale Ale that gives Pliny a run for its money. Hopped SEVEN times.

Http://www.themoabbrewery.com/brewery.html

The website says six ADDITIONAL times, and the folks there said they start at one.

Yummy.


One problem. They don't ship ( though my pub is seeing if they will do kegs.)

Also-- typical of the super hopped beers, I got the last pint of this brew run.

Well, if you can't up the alcohol, may as well up the hops. Makes sense to me!

I forgot to mention a close third to the two hoppiest beers.


When I hid out in Durango I stumbled on to Chama Brewing's March Hare.
http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/chama-river-the-march-hare-ipa/97348/
Chama is a small brewery in Albuquerque, which is enough to make me consider rooting for UNM as a secondary team.

A buddy of mine tonight brought over some Squatters Hop Rising Double IPA. I must say, it is one of the best beers I have ever had. Very smooth, drank like a crisp IPA, but hit you like the 9 percenter it is. The surprising part, it is out of Salt Lake City.

Right now it's this stuff.




It's a pilsner designed for hot nights in a dry climate. Sold only in litros.

Continuing my extensive research, I came across this little advancement in beer technology.


It holds four liters, and has a cooling system that keeps the beer at perfect temperature.

I'm trying to imagine getting through a whole one of these filled with PTE.

A teacher friend posted this on Facebook:

Showing the kids a video about Pompeii being destroyed by Vesuvius. Pliny the Elder died there, and Pliny the Younger gave posterity its only first-person written account of the disaster.

And all I can think of is beer.

Me too.

PTE was also the first guy to taxonomically name Hops.

I'm pissed all this research potential and nobody mentioned Sculpin ipa from Ballast Point in San Diego.

It was originally called Northstar.

It's yummy. Virtually a Pliny clone And it is three bucks cheaper a pint.

And it comes in a habaņero version I just have GOT to try

You're pissed, already.....

You know, there has been quite a bit of discussion of late about over-serving at some of the Lombard taverns.....it could be, now that you've reached a certain age, that you can only drink a fraction of what you used to and be pissed out of your skull.  Razz
