If I had the money I'd send Mikey and Deep a crate of my local 'Real Ales' from Bombardier and Spitfire to Hobgoblin, Riggwelter and Bishop's Finger.

I'm quite fond of "Old Peculiar" myself. That and "Black sheep" ale

I've been to the Black Sheep brewery at Masham a few times as Teesside is close enough to indulge in some magical liquid expeditions ;-)

In return, I'd send you some of my American craftbrewed faves - Flying Fish Abbey Dubbel, Anchor Steam, Harvest Moon Oatmeal Stout... mmm.

Spitfire I find a bit fizzy. Hobgobilin's good, but if I had the choice I'd go for Doombar every time

I used to like Bananabread and Monty Python's Holy Ale.

I'll bet that some shit right there. I might even have to whip up a batch of some homemade espresso doppelbock.

Blue Moon is a very nice wheat beer, bottled traditionally mit hefe, but like all wheat beers is pretty much most enjoyable in hot weather. All said and done, I think Hacker-Pschorr makes a better wheat beer.

You may laugh, but the coffee flavor bends really well with the dark barley malts in a bock. Plus, I give it a decent extra shot of maltodextrin for a bit of extra alcohol and a body without the cidery taste that comes when you try to put in too much sugar.

Indeed, I think its the best beer I've had.

You put as much effort in your drinking as a woman does getting dressed... :lol:

I'd much rather a lazy drink, something I don't have to mix five ways around in order to enjoy.

I do find it odd that everytime I order Bluemoon they give it with a slice of orange... never before had that with beer.

Yeah, not sure why since most people don't eat it with the beer. Normally you just pass it off to a lady nearby you.

No, you're not getting it. I'm not talking about mixing drinks, I'm talking about brewing beer in my kitchen. The ground espresso goes into the wort (that's what they call the mash when you're making beer instead of whiskey) and the maltodextrin goes in in place of some of the sugar when you're making the stuff, not when you're getting ready to drink it. The only effort required to drink it is the act of pouring it into a glass from the jug (I haven't quite gotten around to bottling in glass with crown caps.)

Blue Moon is brewed with orange zest, as a bit of a twist on the traditional German method of serving wheat beer with a slice of lemon in the glass. I guess the idea is that since wheat beers are light and highly carbonated, they're meant for hot weather and a little citrus makes it more refreshing. I never found I needed it, but I've never been able to order a draft wheat without getting a slice of lemon in it.
