Beer Alert & Directory IV


#641

Cool, haven’t seen that beer before. Looks like one of those Costco pizzas.


#642

As good as Anchor Summer Wheat. Pizza from Pizza Hut. But I’m happy. My carb indulgence after great weight loss results.


#643

I will have to try the Shore Breaks.

In a perfect world, this would be served up icy cold with every pizza ever served. Sadly unavailable in Taiwan.


#644

Ha! Oskar Blues brewery is within walking distance of my current abode. 6 breweries in a two mile radius. I never did get into them though. Circle is my neighborhood brewery of choice. As much as I miss tw, there are advantages to being in N Austin.


#645

Will give it a try. I’ve been hammering the Triples.


#646

Was about to ask if you are in Colorado, home of Oskar Blues! But you probably would have had to double (or more) the number of breweries within a two mile radius.


#647

I didn’t know they originated there. Their brewery here is quite big. I wonder if they only can certain ones here in Austin.
If there were twelve, beer-crawl days would kill me!


#648

Will give that a try tonight. Need to call two old friends. It’s the only way we can have a drink together. Like the good old days, lots of cussing and making fun of each other (friends from when I was in my twenties).


#649

6 breweries in a two mile radius. I would be very tempted to try to hit them all in one night. Six pack.


#650

Yep, it started in a little mountain town called Lyons. Colorado is pretty insane for their beers.

With 348, Colorado is the state with the second-most breweries in the nation, behind only California, which has 687 total. That means Colorado has six breweries for every 100,000 residents.

Coincidentally:

The information comes from a new analysis by Datafiniti, an Austin, Texas-based online intelligent web data provider, which analyzed the latest data provided by the Boulder-based Brewers Association to find out which cities and states have the most breweries.


#651

It’s a grand time to be alive.


#652

Done it. The walking around helps


#653

Has anyone tried that familymart brand stout? It’s pretty strong (8%?) and it almost tastes like someone poured hard alcohol into a stout but it’s less than 70ntd and gets the job done.


#654

If you really want to get the job done, you can get two cans of 12% Burge Meester Extra Strong for the low low price of NT$85 at SimpleMart. They should call that beer Bargain Buzz.

These local chaps have a nice brew or two:

Their Bloom IPA is particularly tasty. It’s fresh, hoppy, citrusy and faithfully US-style, reminds me of some of the New Hampsire/Maine local IPAs.

yum


#656

That’s a pretty cool label.


#657

Yup, they’ve got nice artwork, what drew me to them in the first place. Here’s one of their porters:


#658

Very classy. Hope it tastes as good as it looks.


#659

You can get the job done aboriginal style. 三合一


#660

Aboriginal White Russian! The Dude would approve…
