Had a bottle of ultra-delicious Russian River Pliny the Elder today. After hitting up Oklahoma Joe's for the Wed. night burnt ends I went to Flying Saucer for a glass of Bell's HopSlam on-tap and a glass of Bell's Expedition Stout on-tap. Yummy day!

The day in beer started when the contents of my latest beer trade came in. I got:
2x Russian River Pliny the Elder (double IPA)
1x Russian River Consecration (American Wild Ale)
1x Stone Vertical Epic 09.09.09 (Imperial Porter with a Belgian yeast strain)
1x Alpine Brewing Co. Nelson (rye IPA)
1x Jolly Pumpkin Bam Noire (black Saison)
1x Victory WildDevil (IPA with Brettonamyces yeast)
1x Hair of the Dog Adam (old ale)
1x Hair of the Dog Doggie Claws '09 (barleywine)
1x Victory Prima Pils (pilsner)
2x Oskar Blues Ten Fiddy (imperial stout... in a can!)

The Noble Pils is the best thing Sam Adams has put out since their all-Hallartau Imperial Pilsner from a couple of years ago. Noble Pils is in the top 5, maybe top 3, American pilsners I've ever had. Its also a great instructional beer for learning how different hops taste, since it features only European noble hops (saaz, hallartau, spalt, tetenang).

No, it comes from the hops. Pine is just about the most common lupulin flavor. The citrus component comes from the hop lupulin too. As does the floral flavors. Hops provide just about all the fruit or vegetal flavors in beer.

If you like that piney, citrusy thing (aka the flavor of hops, baby) then go and drink some pale ales and india pale ales. IPAs are loaded with delicious lupulin (the pollen like powder found in hop flowers) tastes.

I trade beers every once in awhile with my coworker. It works better to try them that way then to buy an entire 6 or 12 pack only to discover you don't like it. Anyway, he gave me a Guiness Extra Stout that I finally got around to trying last night. That was really good. Strange as it may seem with the different beer I've tried, I had never tried a Guiness, any Guiness. I picked up a 6 pack of that tonight.

Has anyone tried Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Ale? Man, I love Sierra Nevada brews, but that one was a little too strong for my tastes.

Good. Though I prefer the sugar taste over the HFCS taste.

Interesting tidbit about the throwback Colas.

When Pepsi and Coke started using and buying up sugar (sucrose) it drove the cost of sugar sky high. Using HFCS was cheaper and easier to get.

They have driven the cost of sugar up due to supply and demand significantly.

We use a lot of sucrose (sugar) at work and this drove our cost way up on our sucrose containing products.

Drinking some extras that a guy in Pittsburgh sent me in a beer trade between the two of us.

1 extra was a bottle of homebrew of his. The idea was Belgian witbier without wheat. Sort of a pointless idea and the beer itself proved pointless.

The other I'm drinking now is Newbold IPA from Philadelphia Brewing Co. It is weird. The hop flavors are all minty and spruce and tree bark and sap and oily. It isn't good.

I'm not complaining; these beers are just toss-ins. The actual trade was for some Great Lakes Blackout Stout and, more importantly, one of the 1,500 (yes, 1,500) bottles made of thr 2009 Gratitude Barleywine from East End Brewing.

Had a Dogfish Head Chateau Jiahu last night. Its crazy in that typically Dogfish Head way. Let me quote the label for you:
Inspired by a beverage found in clay posts in China around 9000 years ago. In keeping with historic evidence, Dogfish brewers used pre-gelatinized rice flakes, Wildflower honey, Muscat grapes, barley malt, hawthorn fruit, and Chrysanthemum flowers. The rice and barley malt were added together to make the mash for starch conversion and degradation. The resulting sweet wort was then run into the kettle. The honey, grapes, Hawthorn fruit, and Chrysanthemum flowers were then added. The entire mixture was boiled for 45 minutes, and then cooled. The resulting sweet liquid was pitched with a fresh culture of Sake yeast and allowed to ferment a month before the transfer into a chilled secondary tank.

I order a Denver Pale Ale dry-hopped & on-cask, which intrigues an employee. We start chatting about beer and it turns out he was the Head Brewer of Great Divide!

I traded the guy equal value in dollar-for-dollar:

a 4-pack of Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout
2x Boulevard Smokestack Series [Limited-release] Bourbon Barrel Quad (Batch 2009-1)
1x Boulevard Smokestack Series [Limited Release] Saison-Brett (Batch 2009-1)
1x 2008 Founders Breakfast Stout (an extra I threw in; the '06 Jubilale he gave me was an extra he threw in).

Is there any particular reason they named the beer Pliny the Elder?

From Russian River Brewing Co.'s website: "Pliny the Elder was a Roman naturalist, scholar, historian, traveler, officer, and writer. Although not considered his most important work, Pliny and his contemporaries created the botanical name for hops, "Lupus salictarius", meaning wolf among scrubs." Hops at that time grew wild among willows, much like a wolf in the forest. Later the current botanical name, Humulus lupulus, was adopted. Pliny died in 79 AD while observing the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. He was immortalized by his nephew, Pliny the Younger, who continued his uncle's legacy by documenting much of what he observed during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius."

Considering that this beer gets a little bit worse by the day, I need to drink my last Pliny the Elder (for now).

Since I split that Pliny with a friend, I rounded out the night with a 2010 Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Barleywine.

Shitty? And way more expensive than a world class beer, too. That's some shameful shit.

Well shitty in that it cost 16 bucks for a box, and a box lasts me a week. So, no, not anywhere close to more expensive than a good beer. I'd drink a good beer in a night. That being said, drinking a decent bottle of wine ($12-20) is pretty similar in cost to drinking a really good beer (of the large, single bottle variety). The difference is that a good wine will last my wife and I for a few hours. A good beer like that would last me about 30 minutes.

Drinking a glass of Bogle Merlot. Very good sippin' actually. Less than ten bucks on sale. Worth trying if you are a wine drinker. Bogle Old Vine Zin is pretty good as well and similarly priced.

Jesus. Its like the Keystone Light of wine. How many ounces in a box?

Speaking of corrections, a 750mL bottle of an Imperial Stout or Barleywine or Tripel or Quadrupel or Belgian Strong Dark Ale would probably not last you onl 30 minutes. I'd wager you and your wife would spend roughly the same amount of time on it as you would that bottle of wine.

I'm a big fan of Beringer's Founder Cabernet, and that stuff only costs like $10 at most. Two weeks ago, I bought some other type of Cabernet for about $26, and it wasn't nearly as good as Beringer's.

I feel the same way about Bogle which I can find for $10. That is the key to wine IMO. Find what you like. You can find a wine to satisfy your taste at a reasonable price if you check it out. So much of it is marketing...

A box of wine is 3 liters (4x750mL bottles).

I'd have to try it. I know back in the day, I'd drink oatmeal stouts and such in 15 minutes or so. I just have the wrong attitude when it comes to beer. I realize this, but it's ingrained after 18 years of drinking the stuff. Beer is for quaffing. Wine is for drinking. Whiskey is for sipping. When I have a beer, my attitude is to drink that shit.

If you like reds (and want some that are cheap), I highly recommend Vina Maipo Merlot. I'm usually a cab drinker, but I think their merlot is much more complex and interesting than their cab.

It's become our table wine. We also like Bohemian Highway (despite the stupid fucking design of the label) and Barefoot Zinfandel. Those are the cheap reds we drink on a regular basis. For better wines, we drink "whiskey reds" like Alexander Valley Cab, Louis Martini Cab, Lake Sonoma Zin. The meatier and more body, the better.

First time I tried it was in this nice Italian mama/papa restaurant in Queens, I asked for something that would go well with my cannelloni and something that was also not too high priced. First time I ever had wine at a restaurant and it was great.

Can't wait to go back.

Just gave an old Scotch Drinker a bottle of that on Sunday. It was his 90th birthday. He is pretty much a "bar scotch" kinda guy. He was thrilled :) Told me he needed to go out and stash it in his pick-up before it got put on the table for all to drink. Made me feel good.

I will do Vina Maipo Merlot sometime soon if I find it.

Do you try to describe the wine? My girlfriend and I do that sometimes when we are feeling really classy. That $26 stuff I mentioned, her comment: "Tastes sweaty. Yeah, like sweat."

LMAO

It was a really good description.

I'm working on my palate. It's pretty weak as of now.

Well, shit, I'd drink an oatmeal stout quickly too. Some beer styles are made for brisk drinking. Some decidedly aren't.

Haha. I don't usually talk about the way it "tastes" unless a taste is overwhelming (tobacco, cherry, oak). I usually am more interested in talking about the entry/body/finish as well as the mouth feel. I like wines with a lot of body that linger on the palate. That's why I don't like most pinot noirs. I find that they have a good entry, but that they're too light on the palate and don't stick around. That's why I term the wines I like "whiskey reds." I'm a whiskey drinker. I like wines that provide a similar experience to sipping good whiskey, so I tend toward heavier wines.
