Ok the last one was a coconut Belgian and a mango Belgian. Not good at all. In fact we had to revert to brewdog's punk IPA on draft to get over the bad taste.

Black IPAs are fairly common here in Minnesota, even many of the local breweries have them, I think of them as cold weather IPAs. Americans, we even have Belgian style IPAs. Everything is IPA.

What a great time to be alive.

Wow!! You live in the States!! Smile

Next July I will travel from NYC to Memphis and Nashville and then to Chicago and then back to Ny.

Can you tell me how to find good microbreweries on the way?

Oh, you are in for a fantastic trip! I live in a less populated state than others and we have well over 100 breweries, I have a couple in walking distance. You can pretty much look at any city (or neighborhood in the case of ny, chicago) you will be staying in, and google "brew pub" or "brewery" and you will find many. It seems the local places have 1 or 2 beers they just nailed, many small cask non-distributed amazing examples. The best way to find the best beer in small tap room is just ask the server or the guy or gal at the tap, who is often a brewmaster.

We will go, brewery crawling in Minneapolis (St Paul's twin city across the Mississippi River) and walk from brewery to brewery in some of the more densely concentrated brewery areas, trying different beers and meeting other like minded "hipsters."

Thank you so much!!

Actually with brewery I mean the place where they produce beer, not just where beer is served..

The two in the middle of my fridge are black IPAs from my local brewery Thornbridge. Very fine indeed.

Did he say "daft blonde" ?

I am not sure where a "delicious lefty" will take my imagination

Molotov Cocktail by Eviltwin, 12abv. Imperial IPA with mango and orange. Tastes like alcohol with hops and fruit.

Paolo, I was taking about places beer is brewed. Some of the "tap rooms" are just a bar with stools in a brewery with the brewmaster or his daughter working the tap. Some of the bigger taprooms have servers and tables in a warehouse. The real big ones will serve gourmet food to pair with their beers with full kitchen and 20+ of their own beers. Like this:

Do you guys do Growlers in Europe? The big glass jug you bring into the brewery and they fill it with beer to take home?

So the project begins ......

St Stephanus matures in the bottle,getting darker and more complex over 18 months.

These were born in february. So going to have one very soon as it's three months old now. Then one every three months and see how they change.
