Had lunch and beers with some clients at this little place last week:

Their Pale Ale was exceptional.



Thanks! :beerwink:

I've sampeld one beer from Four Hearts, their "Cluster F@ck", last time I visited before this year.

I just opened a bottle of the Amorphis beer "Ale from the Thousand Lakes". Quite nice pale ale.

By chance, are any of you foreigners getting the Carlsberg Fallout beer? I'm trying to get my hands on 2 but since I'm in the states I'm pretty screwed. If anyone is able to get some I'd pay to get it. I'm not sure if it can be shipped outside of UK.

Is it really a specific release and not only a relabel?
Not seen or heard of it, but might be able to hunt it down via mates in UK on ratebeer.

The local pub I attend on regular basis has a new beer on tap. It's called Backbone Splitter IPA and it's been a favourite of mine for a while now. Altough it's a bit expensive (€4,8 per pint). They also expanded their collection of Carlow O'Hara's altough my favourite still remains the Irish Pale Ale.

I have also been brewing some of my own beer (nowhere near the experience of the GnoffMeister) but I am still proud of my Pale Ale which I brewed differently than it was suggested in manual. I also added honey for some different taste and so far it only met with praise and requests for re-brew :oops:

Its probably a relabel. Honestly, I just want the bottle for my cubicle :beerbang: So far I have the most recent cigar city gwar beer and the Narragansett Innsmouth Olde Ale cans. I wish I could have gotten a hole of the other narragansett hp lovecraft beer but we only got the olde ale

That fallout beer is stupid expensive too.

2015 almost over.
Did brew a porter Sunday, have plans to start off 2016 with a milk stout, an imperial stout and a barley wine.

The craft brewery I work for have outgrown the brewery once more, now building a new brewery also fairly close to Gothenburg, moving sometimes April-May to the new and bigger place.

So much beer, yay!

Hey folks, just a few weeks of the cruise, I wonder if someone can buy me some Viking horn board and I could make the payment or make an exchange for something of my country. I am very interested in purchasing one.

Started off todays homebrew (Imperial Stout) with Amon Amarth playing in the stereo for a few hours, but suddenly felt it (the beer) needs a bit punk mixed in as well, so now playing The Casualties upcoming album for it to get that mellow mix of Swedish death metal and NYC punk rock to mix during the lautering.

The other day I had a beer taht I scored 4.8 on rateheerb, so a top 7 beer of all time of commercial beers I've rated under 10 years, amazing!

The Chocolate Manifesto I think it was called, from Flying Monkeys or some such, Canuck brewery.
If you like rich chocolate cake desserts, this beer is for you!

Looks like the Fort Lauderdale Airport has opened up a pre-security gastropub in the past year. Sounds like a good way to kill time before flying home from the cruise.

Went to Tallinn for the weekend and visited the Tallinn Craft Beer Weekend on Saturday. Tasted about 40 new brews. Quite a lot of good brews, and a bit to my surprise my favourites were almost all stouts and porters. :beerwink:

Haha, I knew you'd like that bit. :beerwink:
Seriously though, there were quite a few excellent dark beers, and especially the dry and bitter coffee porters were nice.

My overall favourite was probably Boneyard's triple IPA, Notorious IPA3. Edge Brewing's Hoptimista IPA was quite nice too.


Chatted with the All in Brewing's people and apparently they too knew Your Gnoffiness. :beerwink:

After semi crazy times I've been off work now Mon-Thu, going back tomorrow for one day of work.

Then after work tomorrow meeting mates for a semi crazy tasting evening, among other things tasting 6 vintages of Cuvee van de Keizer Blue, and then some more random aged Belgian beers after.

I've decided to try and brew my own beer for midsummer. West Coast style (D)IPA.
And to try and fail miserably at it, I've decided to not go with any brew kits or anything, but use actual (ground) malts to make the wort. According to BrewMate, if all goes as planned, the beer should be around 8% ABV, 35 EBC and 135 IBU. :beerwink:

But, yes, I kinda want this to go wrong, so I don't end up brewing more and more, leaving my job and going to a brew school like some people. :lol:

As long as you do it by yourself and don't listen to others you'll be fine, it will likely not be very good :cheers:

And damn those brewery lists for the two fests look awesome.

Aah, at the very least there's a Stone tap takeover at Kitty's in Helsinki on Friday. :beerwink:

Steph told me about this thread. First beer and you're doing a DIPA with 135 IBUs? Damn dude, that's going to be brutal.

I started brewing because I thought it would save me money...now I'm buying even more beer than before on top of brewing costs. It is always great to have people look at all my active fermentations/aging vessels and think they've gone bad because of all the shit that seems to be growing on top of them. Wild ales ftw!

Have fun! Beer festivals are great. There's one coming up in Tucson and I just got a $10 off coupon for tickets (thanks Untappd!) but not sure if it's still worth it. The brewer list is nothing special, as most of the ones I'd be interested I can get out here anyways. Decisions, decisions. http://americaontap.com/tucson-on-tap-tucson-az/

Yeah that's the problem we have as well. We skipped a local fest last month because we had literally already tried everything that was being offered :?

Gonna crack open a bottle of Bon Chien tonight!! :belly:

I decided to go with a bit "milder" one first after all. Single hopped with Simcoe. If the supplier's info on the hops is accurate, the beer should be around 100 IBUs. Got all the ingredients, so I should be ready to go. :beerwink:

The first batch was a bit too dry, so I mashed my second batch a bit differently to get some more unfermentable sugars in the beer. Was aiming for around 7%, but ended up at 9%. :lol:
I'll try and bottle my black IPA this coming weekend. Tasted it a bit when I put the dry hops in, and it tasted quite nice already with a nice roasty taste and a bit of sweetness. I have a DIPA in the making for midsummer.

Remember when I said I'm fearing this might get out of hand? :lol:

Bottled my black IPA a week ago and, me being too anxious to wait, I tried one bottle last night. I was quite pleasantly surprised. I wouldn't mind it to be a bit less bitter, or maybe having a bit more aroma hops, but it's quite nice anyhow. Nice and dry, but with a little bit of sweetness too. And it has a nice chocolate-y roastiness to it as well. Definitely better than some professionally made beers, but, admitted, still not quite as good as, say, Founders' Dark Penance. I used honey for priming, and it does give a gentle flavour to the aftertaste. Not sure if it'll be there after a few more weeks of storage.
This one should've been around 7% alcohol according to BrewMate, but ended up a bit over 9%. Maybe I should correct the "brewhouse efficiency" percentage on BrewMate?

But, yes, this was a couraging batch. Might add a bit of Citra or something to add a bit of fresh citrusy notes to the next one and maybe use a bit less bittering hops. The malt ratio seems pretty good for my taste.
