Elysian Brewing Is About to Sell its Soul to Anheuser-Busch

Yeah, many of us had heard of Red Hook way back then, but when we got to try it (after AB) it's generic.

What are some of the better shops for craft beer in DC. Back in the day I used to go to beerose but I haven't been in DC in many a year. Especially looking for west coast brews not available in NYC and Bells.

New gin flaunts unique botanicals

All the new gins pretty much say the same thing. Otherwise it's just about vodka.

Honeys from around the world--share your favorites!

I've heard of a honey from Yemen that is supposed to be very nice. However, who the hell can go to or wants to put their life on the line for honey?

Prices getting stupid

I miss Pyramid Pale, that was a lovely beer. I believe they are now owned by some conglomerate of small brewers.

gastro tour, help pls!!

Went to Arzak 10 years ago had a lovely meal, and we booked it online. Though when I go back, would mainly hit up Parte Vieja (the old 1/4) cause that can;t be beat and Ganbarra there as well. I'm kinda down on the whole 3* mega dinner thing, especially in Spain where so much great food can be had easier and the fun level is higher as well.

Prices getting stupid

Just saw a Cascade for the first time, $45.00 for a champagne size bottle. Now that was @ Beer Table in Grand Central Station, which is pricey, but, elsewhere it might be $35.00-$40.00. I think I'll pass.

Prices getting stupid

I don't know Cascade (havent seen it in NYC) but you're right. I've noticed the Breuery beers can go for up to 30.00 and others arent far behind. They want us to pay for their debt service and I'm having nothing to do with that.

Brewery hits back at ‘racist’ lager claims

Usually I don't agree w/those complaining. Here though, it's just plain stupid. Use slave to the taste on stout but not w/a color description on the label. They left themselves open to the charges and they can't win this silly fight.

This is a sure sign of the bubble about to burst. Late 80's early 90's, we had lots of new breweries w/stupid names.

What do you know about Palomas?

A Mexican pal of mine drinks them. I've known him since the early 70's and he has drunk em since then. Methinks it's about convenience.

Snagged some hard to find Bourbons to try

I'm seen the Hi West around a lot lately, havent had it. Really like their campfire. I think they should give up the idea of distilling and instead become an American compass box.

Tasting Notes: 8 quick miscellaneous beers on tap... IPA, porter, stout, etc.

There are tons of bad pils out there, I believe the Pils worth drinking are Czech.

If You Could Only Drink One Beer Forever...

Budvar is good too. If there was no Plzen then this would be my go too for a Pils, in fact it is my current go to cause it usually is much fresher or tastes that way compared to Urquell.

If You Could Only Drink One Beer Forever...

Since we're in the realm of science fiction here, I nominate the late great Plzen Urquell. Not the current version, the original original, pre buy out. Truly, one of the greatest beers. The bouquet, the body, man, I went on a pilgrimage back in 85 to Plzen just to have the freshest version I could.

Cider, or Why No Love Here?

I love cider, mainly those from Normandy. A close 2nd are the Basque and Asturiano ciders which are a whole 'nother thing. Have't found a domestic cider I like. Yet.

Whiskey gift for a beginner?

You can't go wrong with any of the bourbons you've mentioned. I like Knob as my to go in a lousy bar/restaurant, where they don't have much of a selection, yes, I like knob to drink regularly as well.
