Random Thoughts

Sorry for the lack of a post yesterday. Spent most of the day recovering from the St. Paddy’s Day. I did have some Bell’s Pale Ale (Really a blonde ale by style), it is a nice crisp refreshing beer. Tasted really good after a night full of Guinness Extra Stout and I could see this being a very nice summer beer.

Couple of thoughts from St. Paddy’s Day:

  • Guinness Draught from a can or bottle is not good. I know Guinness loves their little widget thing, but you just can’t replicate a nitro tap in a bottle. However, Guinness Extra Stout is delicious. Definitely go for the Extra Stout over the Draught where available.
  • I know green beer is all the rage during St. Paddy’s Day, but there is not right about it. I know Bud Light and Miller Lite are not appealing beers to begin with, but to make them green is just adding insult to industry.

Coming up tomorrow I will be having a bottling/brew day. Bottling an English Brown and brewing either an ESB or an India Brown Ale. I will decide depending on the hops the LHBS has in stock when I go tomorrow morning.
