There are plenty of wacky beer names and labels from Belgium. e.g. Delerium Tremons w/ pink elephants on the label?

Best Turnip Cake (Law Bock Gow)

Thanks.
Ever try the ones at Dim Sum
Garden on Race St? Haven't gotten them there and everything else they serve is noticeably different from the more standard dim sum restaurants in Chinatown.

Delta Wants to Get You Drunk on Craft Beer

Back before 9/11 booze on international flights was free. I recall flying back to JFK from Malpensa and being offered booze by the stewardess once we reached cruising altitude. I chose champagne. A little 187ml bottle of Moët or something. She gave me four w/ a smile. Plane was virtually empty. So I knocked them off one after another and stretched out (again there was no one on this plane). Just as I had dosed off the stewardess gently shakes me w/ two hands. Surprised I look up at her. She says "sir we'll be landing at JFK in 20 minutes, please sit up and buckle yourself in". Easiest transatlantic flight ever.

Czech beer in Russian Ambiance / Organic Peak and Hops

Did the owner of Bronx Brewing Co. say that he liked the product?

Best Turnip Cake (Law Bock Gow)

I enjoy turnip cake where ever I have dim sum (typically Joy Tsin Lau, Ocean Harbor). But they all kinda taste the same; and and just a bit too greasy.
Is anyone aware of any places doing this dish in a little more delicate and interesting style?
Thanks

Barista-style tap for beer hops launched

So it's hop aroma and not hop bitterness; since the hops aren't in the boil any longer than usual.

Periphery: Where Taste Counts But No Craft

Yeah I went to their website and didn't find ANY of those types of foods on their menu or on what products they carried.
So are we then also to believe that since Netcost doesn't carry Korean, Chinese, and Southeast Asian products that these cultures also have horrendous eating habits?

Does NetCost have a good selection of food from Korea, Southeast Asia, China, Japan?

What's the name of the beer store where you took the photos and where is it located?

But I thought that your sentiment here was that US craft beers were to be avoided.

beer stores how to find good beer...

Ok I actually agree here that broadly speaking beer is a better combo w/ cheese than wine due to the carbonation and rich malt.

Prima isn't a Czech style pilsner.

Then the entire premise of your post is flawed. Periphery may not carry US craft beer not because it is inferior but because they prefer beer from places east of Germany.

Why do you think Periphery doesn't carry any English or Belgian beer?

Periphery: Where Taste Counts But No Craft

Well in a addition to carrying little US craft beer, the bottle shop in your video apparently carries ZERO Belgian beer or beer from the UK. So I guess we're in pretty good company;]

When you say " ... I've had pilsners that are regarded as classics of the style ..." it implies objectivity.

Don't feign objectivity.

It doesn't matter if it's the best pilsner or not that you tried, if you prefer higher gravity beers then you just prefer higher gravity beers.

Was in Prague last year. Drank fresh pils everyday all day. Dense meringue head. Beautiful. Didn't wanna leave.
If I could be one place everyday after work it would at a pub in Prague having a pils.

Again how much US craft beer is available in the UK and how much if any US craft beer have the people you've spoken to tried? What does their opinion mean if they haven't tried it?
