4 reasons chick beer isn't for chicks

One of the things that I often find in my classes is that certain beers have different audiences. OK, I will say it; some beers seem to be enjoyed by the women in the class than the men. It also works the other way.

Budweiser Batch no. 63118 Review

Submitted by tresero on Mon, 12/03/2012 - 09:28

I finally found a case of the Budweiser Project 12 beers and here is my first review in real-time.

All right, I have here in my beer-stained hands some of the first Budweiser Project 12 beers that I've seen anyway. I’m sure maybe some other people have it first but I decided I’m going to taste this and talk at the same time. This is the first one that I figured would be the one I would test first, which is batch 63118 which is supposed to be a Pilsner in the classic American style.

Beer commercials shootout

Submitted by tresero on Tue, 11/27/2012 - 10:01

Even if I don't necessarily like the beer, I find beer commercials can be funny and creative.

I saw an email claiming to have the most EPIC beer commercial ever and thought about putting up a few of my favorites.

Do you think that ads like these make people buy beer? Or are they just for fun and to keep the name alive and only indirectly impacting sales?

Please leave a comment to your favorites and if they are good I will add them to the page.

Chocolate porter recipe – all grain version

Submitted by tresero on Thu, 11/01/2012 - 20:27

This is the all-grain version of my award winning chocolate porter recipe. This is not a difficult recipe for anyone doing all-grain brewing, but it does take some care when choosing the proper chocolate.

I used bakers chocolate for this since I didn’t really want the extra sugar. Just be careful that the chocolate doesn’t have wax or other fillers. You can also use cocoa powder that is unsweetened, but again, make sure of your ingredients.

This is a robust porter that I added chocolate to. If you love chocolate flavors in your beer, this is a great beer for you.
