July 2014 Tasting: English Ales, Feck Yeah!

In honour of the Fourth and 'Merica we’re tasting English Ales in July! So while 'Mericans take a day to reflect on the awesomeness of war and imperialism and drinking light 'Merican lagers and blowing shit up da derp dee derpity dum, I’d like to use this tasting to remember the roots of much of the...

Re: Did anyone pick up a stainless growler marked "Roggenbie

We completely forgot this at last night's (June 12) meeting. So sorry for anyone's trouble, but if someone picked it up, please message me. Hopefully you enjoyed the beer. Thanks! Charlie cfehl@ku.edu Bowe and Christen have it. I believe it is currently in Independence, MO, but I'm sure they could ...

June 2014 Tasting: Chile Beers

Chile Beer Chile beers can be an interesting subset of beers essentially boiled or “dry peppered” with jalapeños, seranos, habaneras, etc. Chile beers typically fall into BJCP category 21, Spice/Herb/Vegetable beer even though chiles are technically a fruit. It really depends on what part of the fru...

May 2014 Tasting: Pale Lager

Pale Light American Lager This month's tasting is by request. We had some interest in the 2014 Tastings Discussion thread for some lagers, specifically Pilsners and Maibocks (for May), so I lumped them into one category: Pale Lagers. I plan to give this tasting myself, unless Trogdor decides to BURN...

Re: Boulevardia (Boulevard's street fest)

FWIW - not taking a shot at Boulevard in the above post, except maybe the marketing department. It sounds like the $75 beer/food event will be awesome, and I'm sure that the actual brewers and other employees had more to do with organizing that than writing shite like this... "Boulevardia...It’s our...

Re: Boulevardia (Boulevard's street fest)

So I did a little research (or tried to at least) on the website and FB page to get some solid details about what exactly to expect on tap for the remainder of the festival besides the big Taps and Tastes event on Saturday night for $75 that sold out in about 30 seconds. All that you are likely to f...

April 2014 Tasting: Belgian IPA

Belgian IPA Keeping with my philosophy of having balanced tastings, we have alternated hop- and malt-forward beers each month so far this year, and April is no exception. We all know how this style probably originated: some homebrewer took a classic Belgian ale like a Witbier or Tripel and said, “we...

March 2014 Tasting: Irish and Scottish Ale

When St. Patty's Day rolls around I start craving Irish ales and so now you must too. Ha, captive audience! We're actually going to explore the whole Scottish/Irish/Scotch/Green Dyed Bud Light BJCP category (someone should bring some actual Irish Whiskey and Scotch too, for good measure). This promi...

If there's time, can I recommend a pit stop at Lukas Liquor on 135th and State Line, right down the street from Martin City Brewing Co.?

I plan to meet up with everyone at some point during the day, but not riding the bus.

Re: Carboys and Sankey's 4 Sale

Damn. Late to the game, would've liked one of those 6.5 carboys.

I'll go ahead and reserve a 6-gallon one.

Thanks Andy!

January 2014 Tasting: Smoked Beers

Smoked Beers If you base your opinion of smoked beers on the unpleasantly intense ash-tray aroma of Rogue’s Voodoo Doughnut Maple Bacon Ale or the unpalatable band-aid flavor of an improperly stored imported Rauchbier that is past its prime, then you probably cringed when you saw this tasting. Relax...

Ode to Pumpking (not a clone)

Re: Grain Swaps

English Maris Otter. I underestimated the amount I had on hand for the rest of the year, so I skipped the last grain buy. Now I am basically out of my favorite base malt. Does anyone have any amount I could buy or swap? I'll take 10lbs, 20lbs, hell I'll take a whole 50lb sack. I have some American 2...

October 2013 Tasting: Black Beers

Black beers, you say?? Get ready for some Guinness Black Lager! I keed, I keed. Actually, that is probably a very well-brewed beer and a fitting illustration of what this tasting is all about: turning traditionally lighter colored ales and lagers black. Malting techniques for dark and roasted malts ...
