Ummm Beeerrr! I have been drinking Moonlight Brewing Co.'s Death and Taxes. It's a black lager and is really tasty. Probably will bring home a keg of a Sierra Nevada specialty ale next to get my self psyched up for my trip to their Beer Camp in September! Cant wait for that!
Recently it has been Scotch Ales and Double IPAs in either the bottle or growler when I am at home. I joined the beer club at my friend’s wine and beer bar/specialty shop. Drinking every ‘make and model’ of beer they have in their cooler was a challenge I was willing to accept. I have really enjoyed the brew from Epic out of Salt Lake City, UT and Odell out of Fort Collins, CO. I did not enjoy the Wells Banana Bread Beer.
I made a clone of that and put it on nitro, mmm mmm good. Never even tried the real thing. Ct. Has some funky laws about beer from other States. Next time you have a couple extra send 'em my way. "Live Yeast Cultures"
Just got back from doing Beer Camp at Sierra Nevada! It was super fun. There were nine campers in my group, people from all over the country. Took us a while to settle on a beer to brew and we came up with something Sierra Nevada had never brewed before.
Our beer is kind of a strong ale with a nice golden color, but the unique thing was that we went to a local winery and picked 350lbs of grapes (petite syrah and tempernillo sp?). We stomped the grapes with our feet and added the skins, seeds and juice to the boil about 5 -6 mins before it was done. We picked up a little more color from the grapes and hopefully some flavor.
Anyway, I'll be getting my share of it in 5-6 weeks and I'll report back. If you dont know about beer camp just google it and stuff will come up. I didnt have to apply because I was invited as a vendor.
We brewed two batches in their 10bbl pilot brewery. Super fun time. I've brewed on commercial systems before but it had been 15 years or so. My how things have changed. Instead of manual labor it was all done by the click of a mouse for the most part. Unbelievable!
Not sure if anyone has started a thread like this here but I've had a hankering to build a food truck in a Defender for a while and would love to hear people's thoughts.
Maybe a pasty truck, a beer truck for private events would be great and a pizza oven truck has been done and looks good too...
I'm shopping for something to use on some longer trips. I am leaning towards this:
Any experience good or bad?
What are you using?
Being that I'm a DefenderSource FNG, I don't have much to contribute from a technical or learned perspective(yet). Selfishly, I also need more post-fodder for increased visibility on the site, so I thought I would share with the Defender community the unique perspective that I can offer: Where...
