    My daughter tells me that at sales meetings, Jim Cook of Sam Adams can sample several Sam Adams beers blindly and tell you what they are.

    he is still passionate about the process.

    He is very down to earth as well. Apparently Sam Adams donates a lot of product around the country. i believe it was 2 years ago that he donated a significant amount of beer for GroundHog day in Punxsutawney. My girlfriends father is in the "inner circle" and got his picture taken with him at a local bar in town. He was there hanging with local crowd. Very cool.

    Thanks, southpark. I might take you up on your offer.

    Not mine. Lifted it from Google to show the beer.

    I'm talking about my A&P in Putnam County. Usually, Yuengling goes for $11/12 pack. But every couple of weeks, they'd mark it down to $9.99/12 pack. I would just stock up. I love their Black & Tan.

    As for my go-to beers if all else fails, I'd have to say Sam Adams Boston Lager or Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Simple but tasty and enjoyable.
    Source, you've become a beer-brewing god (note small "g" so as not to offend the religious amongst us). You really do need to set up a tasting party to sample your latest creations and invite us over.

    Funny you mention that I was looking at a Sam Adam clone recipe the other day.

    Which Steam Beer yeast are you using on that faux lager ?

    Random but with all the Stone above in that collection picture, around Christmas time they released a Chocolate Peppermint Porter, so delicious! I live only a half hour from the brewery so I get to see nearly everything that doesn't get bottled and just put on tap.

    Guinness.

    Heineken as a backup.

    Wyeast 2112 California Lager

    It's the strain used in Anchor Steam.

    He's one of the pioneers of the American craft beer movement. These guys went head-to-head with established billion dollar marketing machines (A-B, Coors, Miller), selling products that were completely foreign to the American public. I'd imagine you would have to be very passionate to succeed against the odds they faced.

    LOL I'm hardly a brewing god. Go to some homebrew forums and you will see some really creative and talented brewers. Some of them could easily work for, or start their own commercial breweries.

    Maybe we could meet up at a tailgate before a Jets game and I will bring some beer. It would be cool to meet some of you.

    I'm in the middle of a growler of nut brown ale from Climax. If you haven't tried them, they are locally brewed in Roselle Park NJ. A few buddies of mine and i took a tour today and it was great, but a tasting at 12:30 put a kink in the rest of my day.

    Put on our thinking caps? Holy **** - I just had a Catholic school flashback, Sister Borgo.

    Strangely enough, my "goto beer" is Corona. A buddy once described it as "the Alka Seltzer of Life". Also, lots of good memories attached to it.

    no, but it makes it easier knowing that one of the nuns I had as a teacher in 8th grade HAS to be in hell right now. If there's any justice in the universe, that is.

    local beers only for me - easy to say when we have the best IPA in the country, and I've tried them all.

    You didn't get tickets to their campout, did you? Though i guess if you're that close, why bother.
    No luck on my end, I guess only 150 tix total, sold out in a couple minutes.
