  • What do flavored beer and fat chicks have in common?

    They are both really good until your friends see you with them.

    Yeah it is. I haven't had this year's Great Pumpkin, but a few years ago, that beer was even better than Dark O' The Moon. (Last year's Great Pumpkin was a disappointment, though. :( )

  • Apricot Ale is for lesbians. Well, all my lesbian friends (and by 'friends' I mean two) drink it.

    For fruit beers with Pyramid I like the Strawberry Blonde Saison.

    Because Men buy the ale so that the women will drink it. Duh.

  • I thought Fruity beers were like the hillbilly, date rape, drink of choice. Like a modern day adaptation of Bartles and James Peach wine cooler. Buy em for the "Ladies", end of story.

  • When I brew a "fruit ale" I try to downplay the chosen fruit. I don't want it to overpower the natural flavors of the malt, yeast or hops. I just did a apple hefe. And though the apple flavor came out just a little too understated, it was still there. I don't want to brew a fruit beer where the flavor is so prominent that, though it might be good, you'd only be able to drink just 1 and then have to move on. To me, to brew a beer where the fruit flavor is so outfront that it dominates what an ale is all about, malts, yeast and hops...just isn't right. But thats just me.
