Beer Alert & Directory IV


#928

@mad_masala It’s a local brewery. It came straight from Yilan to my house


#929

That’s terrible! It means they bottles are not the right ones for whatever the product is. I’m working on a beer bottle sourcing project at the moment and I’m learning that beer bottles need to handle a high pressure (in bars) that can be tested. They need to know about that.


#930

Can also happen if they’re primed with too much sugar. Even with proper bottles.


#931

I’ve lived that during kombucha bottling. I once had a glass shard imbed in solid wood across the room. That’s lethal force. I’ve since learned to only use heavy-duty flip-top bottles. Carbonation control is the hardest part of brewing for me.
And I have someone notifying them for me.
Edit: Jim (of Jim & Dads) already responded. Damn that’s dedication.


#932

How many free beers are sending now?


#933

Free six-pack and another when they start brewing the kumquat IPA again next summer. Score!


#934

Share them with the people who supported you online in this thread!


#935

Better go visit the brewery and ask.

I have been to their brewery place in I-Lan. Like their beer a lot.
Am worried about this.
Shall I provide a 7-11 address for them to deliver a 6-pack to alleviate these worries? :sunglasses:


#937

Jim was very gracious. He’s likely pulling the whole lot.
I’m drinking one now.
Mmmm mosaic hops
I’m probably gonna go over there. I need to visit a waterfall and I’d like to meet him. Remember, I’m trying to weasel my way into being an int’l beer rep one day.
OR, maybe I should try and market my hopped kombucha here. Hmmm…


#938

Bree you got any kombucha source in Taiwan?


#939

No, hence the biz idea. I’m sure scoby could be ordered or shipped from home. It’s quite prolific.


#940

Please do, I’d be first in line. Love me some kombucha.


#941

I drank a friend’s brew of kombucha a week ago and I have to say that while I don’t think that it healths shit (people claim it heals AIDS! xD), I kinda liked it. Wouldn’t mind to have that and kefir at home.


#942

If you ever get to hang out in Pai in Thailand there’s a shit load of good kombucha available there. I don’t know if it’s healthy I just know it gives me a hell of a buzz and doesn’t seem to have any ill effects.


#943

The Tokyo Dry Steinlager (500cc) at 7-11 (brewed in New Zealand) is very good. Part of the “buy 3, get 23% off” deal for the next month or so.
Finishing it off now as the sun goes down in the south.


#944

Carrefour has some 33cl cans from Spain that are worth trying guys. Please try the “doble malta” and especially the “Maestra”. Nice stuff.


#945

It’s been a long time since I’ve had this beer. Family Mart. About 220 for three.


#946

@mad_masala @the_bear
I found someone in tpe with scoby to spare if either of you are interested.


#947

Friend from England sent this. Naughty.
