    What are you drinking right now?

    I picked up a big bottle of Bear Republic's Hop Rod Rye Ale last week. Just cracked it. Good stuff!

    If you want good strong coffee, french press(drip brewers remove oils, and make terrible coffee) up something bold/extra bold from the pacific islands region, thats a good cup of coffee, nice and earthy,mossy, and lingers for days on your taste buds.

    The only way to drink starbucks coffee, just like any coffee is french pressed. They actually have some awesome beans(pikes is nasty, as is most the latin american beans), its a shame they offer drip brewing unless you ask specifically for French Press.

    on the subject of coffee - i think this is pretty sound advice.

    i do kinda think you might be a wee bit off on the "Latin American" philosophy though. there are some excellent beans to be had from L/A. Jamaica is more what i'd genre-up as "Caribbean" and if that is what you were referring to - i'm not really sure. i have only had a couple of Jamaican coffees and relatively few Caribbean island varieties. Cuban coffee is generally rich & stronger than my Jamaican experiences.

    as far as acidity, Salvadorean coffee is championed by certain Europeans for it's lack of acid & ease on the stomach / digestion.

    where i do think you are right is L/A beans most easily located on shelves tends to be over-refined garbage - and in that regard you are probably correct in terms of the probability of randomly extracting an outstanding brew.

    lol, There was some personal bias
    from me there. I"ve had some L/A coffee that i could tell was really good quality,and some that i really enjoyed, i just havent had any that blew me away, only because of my personal tastes. Not saying good L/A Coffees don't exist, Just that they arn't as heavy weight on the tounge as i like, personally. The guy i quoted was talking about weight and viscosity also.

    Dont we have an embargo with cuba?

    Thats interesting about Salvadorean coffee, wonder if theres significant geological differances compared to guatamala that it borders? might hunt some down.

    Have you ever studied coffee preferances in differant societys around the world? It's Funny, us americans are known around the world for liking weak coffee.

    lol. it's all good. i kinda figured it was a little bit tongue in cheek. plus to be honest, you're right in terms of someone looking for super heavy weight, L/A coffee doesn't generally reach that far. i've had some Panamanian (i think simply labeled "Finica") and Costa Rican beans that are heftier (by L/A standards), but for a pot of oily liquid chili beans, there are a couple of Ethiopians i've had that when brewed correctly ...are just monsters.

    no. not studied up, but i know "weak" is typically what is thought of the coffee culture here. i often wondered if it's not a combination what we start out with, how it's roasted and how we brew it. as said Cuban coffee also tends to be heavier but i think it is typically roasted heavier.

    i'm fortunate in that i also have a couple of friends that buy bean from around the world. i'm not sure if they are "geeks" per say but i assume damn close if not. they sometimes get a handful of guys and buy 100lbs of hard to come bye green beans. not sure if you are familiar but an air popcorn popper can be used to roast beans to your liking... the air actually forces the shed husks to blow out (put a bag in front to catch like a lawnmower throwing clippings to a bag)... you wind up with only beans left in the popper.

    i've also wondered about Salvador's coffee. and to be clear that statement was lifted from something i read years ago - which i assume was speaking in generalities - i'm sure there are some Salvadorean bean productions that have higher or more typical acid counts. i've tried several and they do appear to be less acidic but warning - they were NOT heavier in place of the low acidity!

    i'm not really certain but I know Nicaragua and (believe) Honduras + Costa Rica have volcanic soils and likewise produce tobacco that is highly regarded. i don't really recall anyone ever ranting about Salvadorean cigars - so maybe that's the difference (volcanic soil)?

    We've got a group of coffee nerds too. we've done tastings of $100/lb Kopi Luwak, which while being very complex, was overrated. And one guy spends 2 weeks a year on a coffee farm in guatamala. he brings back around 50lb of coffee, roasted two days prior, i personally dont like it,as its roasted pretty light, but he loves it. I used to be a starbucks coffee master, so i know those beans inside and out. It's a fun group of guys.

    I do know about, but haven't done that at all. My fav shop has a roaster, and they are happy to do custom roast profiles to customers liking. They actually will custom roast a few lbs upon request. I've traveled all over drinking coffee and visiting shops,and this place has really impressed me,with both their ambiance,product, and love of coffee. arcedium-coffee.com

    You know what, im pretty sure there's a few companies that grow beans, and tobacco in the same field. i've always wanted to pair a nice cigar and good cup of coffee grown from the same soil. i think it'd be interesting to try and note any characteristics that they would share from the soil. I used to be into cigars alot, but then i turned 21 and beer took over the cigar money,but i still enjoy one a few times a year.

    BTW, ill be coming to your area to enjoy the weather and ride in FEB.I've got a class at Specialized and then to ride with my uncle(modesto). know any good coffee/beer stores in San Jose/Morgan Hill area?

    i'll have to ask - i don't know much at all about the coffee scene in SJ.

    if you happen to come to San Francisco, i'd recommend cruising the bike lane down Valencia St.there are several competing shops that regularly have on hand what it sounds like you enjoy. after a caffeine fix - there's a couple of must see shops (beer) in the same vicinity too.

    you've again reiterated a point i'm suspicious of - when you mentioned your friend's roasted Guatemetecan coffee. my observance has been that L/A coffee in general is roasted to a lighter shade. never really known if that's because the regional bean in general just can't handle heavier or what the deal is on that.

    i've never had a cigar i know is from the "same fields" as the bean, but i've had many a cigars accompanied by coffee from the same countries. i don't get to my cigars as often anymore either but there is a click and you might be surprised how well they pair.

    During the Plowboys win over the Aints I had a Kasteel Rouge, a couple of Ten Fidys and a Goose Island Bourbon County. Time to sleep - big hike tomorrow.

    I somehow ended up at BJ's last night and the night before, and had a pint of their Nutty Brewnette both nights. It was alright, kinda sweet.

    Working nights, just got off, getting ready to go to bed.

    Watching the sunrise while enjoying a selection from the Deschutes Brewery Reserve Series- Mirror Mirror. According to their web site, they have only released it twice (February of 2006 and April of 2009). It's my last one. I made it to within about four months of the "best after" date. That's the closest I've ever been able to come.

    11% Alcohol by volume, aged in oak barrels.

    First released in bottles in 2006, Mirror Mirror is an oak-aged barley wine that has been in production at the brewery for more than a year. Mirror Mirror is an inspired version of the brewery’s flagship, Mirror Pond Pale Ale, which has been doubled up to barley wine strength – yielding a rich malt base with hints of raisin and oak tinged with the slightest citrus hop aroma.

    After an extremely limited release in 2006, we kept a small stash of Mirror Mirror, sending a few kegs to select festivals and pouring it at our pubs from time to time, where customers discovered this unique beer, and a loyal following was born.

    “This year’s brewing will have a more layered and refined oak presence,” says Brewmaster Larry Sidor. “I’m really looking forward to this version of Mirror Mirror because it is not only an advancement for this beer, but it also shows the evolution of our knowledge related to barrel aging and how the whole Reserve Series has developed.”


    I think The Abyss wold have been too much for breakfast.

    It's okay, but hardly seems a Double IPA. It just goes to show that while Full Sail makes fine beer, they do lack in comparison to other Oregon brewing companies.

    Deschutes Inversion IPA.
    It has been freezing a** cold here; everything is covered in ice. Got the fire going, good NFL playoff game between Arizona and Green Bay just wrapped up, Blazers are on playing Cleveland and I'm uploading videos of my friend's band playing at Double Mountain to YouTube. Hoping it starts snowing instead of freezing rain so I can go snowboarding.
    All this goes better with an Inversion IPA. Dead of winter in the mountains of the PacNW; gotta go with it.

    Spent half the day on my BMX bike. Tired. I just cracked a bottle of Lagunitas Brown Shugga. Has anyone here tried this brew? I like it so far; it's kind of reminiscent of Censored.

    Haven't tried Censored (don't even know what that is actually) but the Brown Shugga is an interesting and very good beer. Not my favorite Lagunitas but interesting. I remember it being very brow sugar/caramel in the aroma, some hops - could actually use some more bitterness to blend with the sweetness/body - it is very full bodied, a bit slick in the finish but the high alc really does keep it balanced. Mostly, this beer is about the malt... good for cold weather and the high alc does not hurt!

    You nailed it! "Censored" is a copper ale brewed by Lagunitas. Like "Brown Shugga," it is on the sweet side, but it isn't as sweet as "Brown Shugga," nor is it as high in alcohol.

    Dilemma of the night: I just spent an hour or two hacksawing, cutting and filing the cable guides and brakemounts off my new BMX frame. I also drank a couple bottles of Lagunitas Brown Shugga. When I was done for the night, I pulled out my BMX bike and sessioned the curb in front of the house for a bit and found myself confronting an undeniable fact--I ride better after a couple of beers. I've suspected this for a while. What do you gentlemen suggest? Shall I partake of liquid goodness so that I shred adequately, or shall I play it safer, Puritan style?

    Here's my thoughts on it. I got it for $4, worth it at that price.

    If your in love with the Vanilla porter don't read my review on that one. I don't have a sweet tooth.

    I was pretty impressed with the Breck Oatmeal Stout, not a big stout by any means, but the mouth feel was just spot on awesome.

    The only other Breck beer i've had was some small batch IPA, and i don't remember anything about it, and didn't do a review either.

    a great nut brown ale and you gotta love the MTB graphics, though i'm confused as to why these seasonals hit the shelves so early. here we are, barely 1/3 through winter and the spring ales are already appearing. now when spring does finally arrive, this beer will be nowhere to be found...

    Had a few sips of the Belgian on tap at BJ's on Saturday after snowshoeing... it sure tasted good after not being able to have any beer the past couple weeks (I was on antibiotics for an unusually long cold I had). Unfortunately, I had a freakin' migraine all weekend long, so a few sips was all I could have without infuriating my head even more... I am looking forward to finally breaking open the Abyss I picked up over a month ago.

    Not today, but I had a pint of Dogfish Head 90 Min at the Yard House a couple nights ago. My first beer in over 3 weeks (aside from the sips of the Belgian I had at BJs over the weekend). The hops were a bit heavy in this one - I've had the 90 Min in bottled form and it seemed more balanced (excellent beer, I tried it because of all the hype here on MTBR). Odd, since I usually prefer my beers on tap versus from a bottle. But I enjoyed every sip of that pint

    Bridgeport's Hop Czar. While it's a mighty fine IPA, it's nowhere near an Imperial, or Double, IPA.

    Oregon sure makes some great beers, but why can no one make an IPA like Deschutes Brewery? It really baffles me.

    My fave right now, not sold in stores, is Deschutes Alpha Dog Strong Ale; or as the brewery calls it, a "fresh squeezed IPA". It's nectar of the gods

    Had a pint of Speakeasy Double Daddy IPA last night at Yard House. Tasty! I like the Dogfish Head 90 Minute better (out of their IPA selection), but I enjoyed the hoppiness of this beer.

    Had some Stone Ruination IPA on tap at Yard House last night. It was okay; I still prefer the Dogfish Head 90 Minute from their IPA selection.

    Has anyone had the Dogfish Head Olde School Barleywine? Good? I saw some at my local liquor store and was intrigued.

    had some friends over recently and did a small barley wine tasting...



    started with old foghorn, then olde school, and finished with '10 bigfoot. in retrospect, probably should've finished with olde school, since it weighs in at 15%!!! i have limited experiences with barley wines, but olde school is what i would call a traditional barley wine, but on 'roids. it was so smooth for having such a high alcohol content. will have again, someday.

    as far as what i'm drinking now? well, i had a old rasputin with dinner (roast pork chops, mashed yams, and garlic-shallot cauliflower). i thought it paired nicely.

    Thanks for the link, Hand/of/Midas! Very informative site! Now I have something else to distract me from my work

    I've had the Bigfoot; I thought that was pretty good, so I figured I'd venture further into the world of barleywine style ales

    Session Lager

    Cup of Earl Grey tea at the moment (still at work) but in the shop tonight working on Maverick fork front rack project on my fat bike I'll have a Session Lager ( from Full Sail in Hood River ) on hand.

    Session is my go to summer pump track brew. Good stuff, and cheap. I'm loving these lately though.
