I wish I had Your choice over here. I will be drinking a Hamburg Pale Ale from "Ratsherren". Decent, but an Oregon beer would be better. And being in Oregon. :cry:

I think fresh pilsner from a local gasthaus would be hard to beat...

Whatever's cheap,cold,and in my fridge. I don't believe in spending $$ on something that I piss away after 2 running plays and a commercial.

I'd like to order a pizza to go with no anchovies.
No anchovies? --- you've got the wrong man. I spell my name "Danger".

I haven't had a drink in years and don't plan on it for the Super Bowl.

My son went to work for this local brewery a couple of years ago and was their Cellar Master.

http://jekyllbrewing.com/

Jekyll is Georgia's 2nd or 3rd largest independent brewer. He started experimenting with his own recipes and created a few special "runs" (10 barrels or less) that won awards in the Georgia brewing scene.

That got the attention of these guys: http://www.burnthickorybrewery.com/ who hired him away a few months ago. He just got promoted to Head Brewer. He is going to spend his Super Bowl Sunday nursing along a few batches of Valentines Day special beers. That being said, brewing beer is not all fun and games. Production is a demanding 24x7 job, throw in some time to create and develop new recipes, handle promotional campaigns, financial management, negotiate with distributors and few other duties and it turns into a 60 hour work week. There is a lot of competition in this industry vying for attention and shelf space, so its dog eat dog competition.

So enjoy your favorite brew today and remember the hard working folks that bring it to you.

Got into craft and foreign beer about 15 years ago. We had no availability here so I wound up making road trips to Dallas, New Orleas, St. Louis, Baton Rouge and Memphis, among others, for beer runs and brewery tours. And I spent a fortune trading with guys around the world to get access to beers we didn't have here. Was a blast! Managed to make acquaintances in Belgium, Germany, Australia, England and more.

All told I was able to review several thousand different beers. Although I don't follow the scene much now, I still love a well made beer.

I admire what your son does. Takes serious dedication, passion and a stellar work ethic. A blend of science and art, truly a craft.

Have never met a brewmaster who hated his job, despite the long hours.

Hope he continues to have great success, 4D.

Boat Session IPA by Carton Brewing Company, local here in New Jersey. IMO, the best Jersey beer you can get.
