    I can't seem to get this to not come out way too foamy. Any suggestions? Playoff baseball tonight and I'd like to embibe a little, if you know what I mean....

    UPDATE: I just got another sixtel of the same beer again from my local microbrewery around the corner (Sly Fox Brewery). Got the Royal Weisse again since I liked it so much (it's an unfiltered Bavarian style wheat beer). After I investigated my fridge, it turns out the temperature was like 50-55 degrees F (!) instead of what I thought (I have an old-school small mercury thermometer inside it). So I drug the fridge out, got behind it to adjust the temp (cranked it down to coldest setting) and now it is at 40 degrees F. Kept the pressure at 10psi. I also rinsed out the draught glass first with cold water (kegorator manual listed this tip) and poured it and man, it is perfect! I am very happy with the results.

    It was always embarrassing to me that when we have get-togethers and I get a keg to utilize the beer meister, it seems it's always way too foamy so I always had to pour a whole pitcher and then wait and it still was too foamy and such. Guests were always nice about it but to me that's Busch League (pun intended!). Now I got it under control. If guests arent going to use the glasses and just want the plastic cups, I'm still going to have it rinsed with cold water so it's wet for the pour, it seems like it makes a big improvement on the pour. Key thing for me was proper temperature.

    Happy New Year!

    Shiner Black Lager is indeed very good; and this "Family Reunion" 12-pack also comes with two bottles of their "Kosmos", which is also very tasty. (BTW, according to the story, "Kosmos" was/is Kosmos Spoetzel the brewmeister for which "Spoetzel Brewery, Shiner TX" is named.)

    I wish I had saved a label or bottle of one other brew from the last pack.... it was a very nice Bavarian Alt that I'd happily recommend - except I can't remember the name!

    Now I'm drinking Sandels:



    I like very much about Karhu ("Bear"), Karjala ("Carelia"), Foster's and Carlsberg. Also dark beer like Velko popovich Kozel ( Czech beer) is in my mind in the bar.

    I saw this article on Yahoo and noticed it gave a mention to Genesee Cream Ale which was mentioned in this thread. So I figured that you guys might get a kick out of seeing that it placed on this list........

    Re: The Beer Thread

    I've heard of Jester King, but I've never had anything from them. They have a collaboration called Beer Geek Rodeo that sounds AWESOME

    I live about 10 miles from The Bruery. Big fan of them and I'm planning to go to their tasting room tomorrow night with my gf and a friend of mine and his gf. The Saison De Lente they mention in the article is great, as is the Autumn Maple they mention. Of special note is their rare, expensive and heavenly good Imperial Stout called Black Tuesday. It's 18.3%, sweet, bourboney goodness. I do have some in my stash, but one bottle is way too much for one person to tackle. It's a special occasion share bottle.




    Cigar City is really known for another very rare beer. Hunahpu. Supposed to be awesome but good luck getting it. I've heard very mixed things about the rest of their line.

    I've been to Revolution Brewery in Chicago and it was ok. Nothing there blew me away but not bad. The crowd was very hipster-ish though.

    Re: The Beer Thread

    Tonight is the official start of Philly Beer Week.

    It is the largest beer festival of it's kind in the world. There are beer events from Wednesday morning two days ago, all the way through next weekend and they take place all day, every day.

    Tonight at 6:30 Mayor Nutter knocks open the ceremonial first keg on Independence Mall in the shadow of the liberty bell. Then it's over to the Independence Visitor Center for the "Opening Festival."

    My wife and I have tickets to the opening festival at the IVC, then we are going to Eulogy for a meet and greet with David Walker of Firestone Walker Brewing Company.

    Heading to Tapestry in South Philly on Saturday for the all day Cirque de Saison festival. And going to Farmers Cabinet on Wednesday night for a presentation and tasting with with Shelton Brothers Importers.

    I give Philadelphia a lot of credit. When the city first started sponsoring "Beer Week" they got a lot of criticism. Mayor Nutter stood his ground and assured the residents that it was a good thing for the city, and not just a drunken keg party.

    It turned out to be an incredible success, and is now the largest craft beer festival in the world.

    If you are a beer guy, and you are anywhere near Philadelphia in the next week, you need to come into the city and take part in this.

    Check out the website. There are over 100 different events planned this week, including the massive beer expo at the Philly navy yard.

    I think there is stool with my name on it at Monk's.

    I have been there more times than I could count.

    It used to be my wife and my favorite place to go before everyone else discovered it. It has become very popular, and sometimes gets crowded. Saturday or Sunday afternoon is the best time to go. The food is very good and the beer list is one of the best in the world.

    Let me know the dates when you are going to be in Philly and I'll PM you my contact info.

    I live minutes from the city and would be more than happy to show you a few of the best beer places.

    Right now, Philly is the best beer city in the US.

    Re: The Beer Thread

    Awesome. I will be out there from 6/27 until the morning of 6/30. It will be a short trip, but I should still have a night or two free to check out some spots. If it makes any difference, I will be staying and working in the Exton area.

    Re: The Beer Thread

    I had a little mishap this week on a beer trade from the PNW. FedEx contacted me and they said that they couldn't deliver a package of mine because it was damaged. Well, after retrieving it I found this....



    Yeah, this is the first bottle I've lost in shipping (either coming or going). That sucked but at least the bottle I was really, really hoping for made it. In the background you can see Deschutes The Abyss which has been one of many must haves that I've been wanting that's difficult to get. It has a "drink after" date of August 2012, so this might be a birthday drink for me in September.


    Also, I had this tonight... Stone Tenth Anniversary Ruination Ale. 10.8%, bitter as can be, oily and hoppy goodness. I've grown fond of IPAs now, so why not do it right?

    Re: The Beer Thread

    I can't believe nobody has resurrected this thread before now. I got a deluxe tour of the Stone brewery a couple years ago. We got to sample everything they made then. Pretty good stuff indeed. The only thing I wasn't fond of was the beer float I got for my birthday. I love root beer floats but this just didn't work for me. I have just recently tried a new item. Redd's Apple Ale. Very refreshing and goes down very easy. I know it isn't a craft brew or exotic item but I enjoy it.
