    Exclamation Offical I Love CraftBrewed Beer and I wanna talk about it Thread

    Sorry for remaking a old Thread but it's been bothering me for sometime that it was in a music lounge section.


    Here something for you TomaZ : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microbrewery

    Soon as more information comes out about camping I would like to organize a beer geek show and tell where everyone bring a beer from their region and so we can all enjoy beers that we haven't had.And you can't try the beers unless you bring a beer.


    Personally I like to put out my favorite breweries right now are in no particular order;
    Dales Brothers(Upland),Lighting Brewery(Poway),Craftman Brewery(Pasadena),AleSmith(Miramar).

    "craftbrew" is not a real word. It is a word dreamed up by marketing/PR folks to sell product. repeating it in normal conversation in an unironic way makes you sound like a shill. I don't think you intend it that way so you get a free pass, but I'm just sayin'.

    also, the old thread just talked about 'good' beer. what's wrong with 'good'? Good is a word everyone knows and is more intuitive than 'craftbrew'. Also there are some beers that are mass factory produced that are very good (Guinness) and there are some beers that are 'craftbrewed' that really aren't very good at all.

    I enjoy "good" beer. I don't enjoy "not good" beer.

    Let's be honest, I like not good beer a lot of the time, too.

    All this is true, except that "good" is subjective. I wound up manning the bar at a business networking social once. The guy who was paying for it was not a beer guy, so I was expecting to be serving Bud Light. But I was surprised that he had bought a keg of Skinny Dip and a keg of whatever New Belgium's Pilsner is. (Blue Paddle?) Both pretty safe choices...it's not like he got a Porter or something. Anyway, at least half of these otherwise intelligent, cultured people wound up walking away disappointed because they only know Bud Light.

    To make matters worse, Skinny Dip is actually a "light" beer...a low carb summer brew. At first, when people asked for "whichever one is lighter", I would give them a Skinny Dip. Most of them would make a sour face when they saw it. Eventually, I realized that "light" is code word for "flavorless & urine colored" and that they didn't really care about calories, and started handing them the pilsner, figuring that it was closer to what they wanted. (Even that was too much for some of them.)

    Anyway, to those people, "good" vs "crap" means Bud vs Olympia. And for that matter, I'd probably take Olympia.

    I know what you mean, Sparks, but it's pointless to discuss how people who don't really like beer feel about different brands of beer. IMO.

    It was in the music lounge because it existed before they broke the music lounge and the misc lounge apart.

    Good point. Anyone who only drinks Bud isn't going to be interested enough to enter the thread, even if they think that's "good"

    I have found the best way to switch bad beer drinkers to good beer drinkers is starting them off with a good Hefeweizen, it's still light enough in color to not scare them, and the flavor isn't too far removed from what they are use to. Then once they like that and get to be a little more open to trying something else you move on to a tasty brown, next thing you know they will be sipping a porter with the rest of us.
