    Hey...any of you fools home brew? I have a sneaky suspicion that I'm getting a kit for Xmas. I'd love to pick your brains so I don't wind up making dirty water.

    I know Stormy does. Hopefully you get that kit as the usual one people gift (the plastic beer keg kit that you can buy anywhere) seems lame. This one at least seems like you can actually get good results from that equipment.

    Lots of people ask me why I don't homebrew. For me, aside from the science aspect of it which can be off-putting, I don't see a real goal in it (personally speaking). The market is flooded with tons and tons of homebrewers so the odds of turning pro and starting your own brewery is slim (not to mention the start-up capital that would require) and while I see the satisfaction of brewing and drinking your own creation, there's a huge river of great brews out there for me to try that I don't really feel a need to brew my own. I can save the effort and go buy a 4-pack of GF double stout. If I get a wild hair up my butt and want to create something, I have much stronger leanings toward cooking. To each their own. If you do receive a kit I hope you enjoy the hobby!

    It's going to be a father/son project. So, I'm getting more out of it than just beer.

    I've had the 12/12/12 a couple of times since it came out. It pretty much defines "seasonal beer" to me. So much going on there.

    This was my Vertical Epic tasting on 12/15/12. We got through two no VE beers to start and continued with the 03, 05-12, ahd the Anchor Steam Christmas Ale and finished the Double Arrogant Bastard. The coolest thing happened though. The Stone Company Store in Pasadena had the 06 that I needed, and it was only $13. Too cool eh?
    We had a great time and almost everyone crashed out at our pad that night.

Other than that, my need to homebrew is much lower than it's ever been. I started way back when b/c there was so little good beer to be had. Then the first craft brewing movement came along in the late 80's/early 90's and that slowed me down. And now that we've struck gold, as far as beer lovers go, here in the 2000's, I really don't have much need to brew b/c I can find pretty much anything my palate wants nearly any place I look. But I still like to crack out a nice 6 gallon batch of strong Belgian style ale every once in awhile! Good luck with your first batch. Just do some reading and edumacatin' with some good reference material first (Zymurgy, Charlie Papazian's books, etc.) and you'll be golden. Cheers!

    The group LGK invite must have crossed in the mail (LOL)

    Looks like a grand time!

    La Chouffe. Definitely La Chouffe. Had first one today, a draught at Wurstkuche with a side of their fries and veg sausage.

    Wurstkuche is only a mile from my new day gig. Not sure if that's a good thing or bad thing..

    That's one of the bartender's at Ladyface's favorites. They had it on tap quite some time ago. Good. Different, but good.
