Beer Alert & Directory IV


#868

A little cooler today, but lately the weather’s screaming for a good gose. I worked out today - inside, with air conditioning - and still my clothes were wring-out soaked with perspiration when I got home. I would prefer to recuperate by drinking a large gose instead of Pocari Sweat.

Anybody run into one in Taiwan?


#869

Yes, good idea. The whole “buck” idea’s not bad. Buckwheat for hefeweizen, bucktooth for an IPA with a bit of a bite to it, etc.


#870

The imagery is confusing me. It’s called Buckskin, but there’s a horseshoe on the can? Any leathery notes in the finish?


#871

Very weird. Couldn’t they ask even one native English speaker?


#872

They have been advertising on ICRT radio in Chinese but not in English. Quite funny if they don’t want the English-speaking Market


#873

Heard a PSA from their “traffic trainer” the other day about how you shouldn’t double park and that “just gonna be a minute to buy something” wasn’t a good enough excuse. Of course, this was in English… I think the demographic for that message really should be the local crowd. :2cents:


#874

Buckskin beer ? Not appealing name.


#875

Very soon Kavalan will come with whisky infused beers, as I was told.


#876

I have seen IPA whiskey. (I think it was Highland Park).

I’m no whiskey connoisseur, but that’s pretty weird.


#877

That’s all well and good. But I hope they get some marketing help so that they don’t end up calling it Rawhide or something similar.


#878

We have very good whisky infused beers and other ‘infused’ beers, wine, calvados … they are more like aged for some months in casks from specific types of alcoholic goodness.


#879

Taihu has a somewhat new place in Xinyi. All outdoor and standing but very popular in the evenings.

#880

That’s been there for awhile. Before Breeze Xinyi even opened.

It’s a bit more popular now that Breeze is open though.


#881


Did that yesterday


#882

Will keep an out for the shoes next time :sweat_smile:


#883

Is the picture on that glass a genie with a cobra turban?


#884

Taihu Beer Company logo. Apple has an apple, Taihu has an abstract art thingy.


#885

cool logo


#886

Chuan Lien in Hualien. 50 NT German brew. Excellent.


#887

I do that every day!
