Beer Alert & Directory IV


#1028

True, but sometimes out and about, I’ll just splurge for the sake of trying a local beer I’ve never heard of if it’s under a 100.


#1029

It’s good sitting on the floor at Taipei Main Station. I think I’ll go soon.


#1030




#1031

When’s the party?


#1032

Taiwan Beer
Double Hops Lager Beer.
3.5% abv
NTD 43.
Very good on a hot day. Surprised at how decent it is.

Just started bottling this style, the TTL guy says.


#1033

TTL’s American IPA Baby, 5% abv.
Doesn’t taste at all like the IPAs I’ve drank in the U.S. over the years.
Must be because it’s 35 IBU.
Need to up that level to nearly double to get a hoppy taste, imho.


#1034

Cool but why only 3.5%?


#1035

No idea, but doesn’t taste like a 3.5% beer.
If you see it somewhere, try it out.
Can drink more, but not get so drunk.


#1036

That’s promising actually. On the list.


#1037

so you can back it up with a whisky, of course


#1038

Available at Family Mart, NT$105 per can. This is a very nice, mild summer pale ale that’s pretty ubiquitous up and down the East coast.

August 3, 2018 is the International Beer Day.

"How to celebrate IBD

For those who are new to this whole International Beer Day thing we’ve crafted this guide on how to celebrate this amazing day.

Drink Good Beer with Good Friends
If you were thinking about spending International Beer Day by yourself, think again! Drinking beer may be the most important part of celebrating International Beer Day, but we’re pretty convinced that beer goes best with a little conversation. So drag your friends out to an IBD celebration or invite them into your home, but make sure you have some camaraderie to go with your brews.

Find Your Nearest IBD Celebration (The Belgian Waffle Stop, Taipei)
There may be International Beer Day events right around the corner. Call your local pubs!

Give the Gift of Beer
It’s a well known fact that beer tastes better when someone else buys it for you, so it’s a tradition on International Beer Day to buy beer for your friends! When you present the beer, don’t forget to say the traditional words of beer-giving:

“I bring you the gift of beer.”

By giving the gift of beer to your friends and receiving the gift of beer in return, everyone’s beer becomes much more delicious.

Enjoy Beers From Other Cultures
It’s a big beer world out there full of wondrous new flavors. Be adventurous, try something new on International Beer Day!"

@Rocket ain’t that much of a beer drinker, but an icy pilsener does tend to put a fuckin button in the end of a miserably hot Taipei day.
Salut!!
