Just kegged a Pliny the Elder clone for a wedding next week. Bride's choice. Groom gets the Apricot Wheat.

Now that is interesting, but I know a lot of women, myself included who are huge hopheads. I love hoppy beer. I am jealous you can make a "Pliny" clone...it has almost reached cult status in these parts! Nice wedding gift, for sure!

You ladies rock!!!  :headbang:

 

Also recently did another "cult" big hoppy IPA clone - Heddy Topper out of VT. Only had the original once, but it rivals Pliny, IMHO. Another cult fav, which I can actually get here in the Midwest, is Bells' HopSlam. Comes out once a year and is sold by lottery draw in local beer stores that can get it. Gone within hours. What makes it unique is their use of honey in the brew, in addition to a sh!t-ton of hops! Since Surly has expanded their brewery, Furious is now commonplace on local beer shop shelves and on tap in all the local good bars! Beer scene in IA has improved immensely in the last 2 - 3 years!

I am lucky enough to have tried Heddy Topper. My sister and brother in law live in VT and poor me the love of my sister's life is an AWESOME home brewer, so he set a bottle aside when he knew we were coming for a visit. The others I have not heard of. Iowa and beer who would think it, tonyb? I believe every state has come a long way, beer-wise in the last 5 years, well, the country as a whole has. MacKenzie, I sure can see sipping a nice hoppy beer while enjoying some of the wonderful food you cook! I just came home from the taproom, had an Arrogant Bastard, but now I am going to bed hungry and thirsty, but with a smile on my face!☺ï¸

If you can get it try the Guinness Extra Foreign Stout, that one word "Foreign" makes all the difference, IMHO! Unfortunately it is tough to find, I have only had it on a cruise ship.

You get Guinness Foreign Extra all over the UK and even here in china it's the easier Guinness to find in bottle shops. The best bottled Guinness by far!

PJ, a friend of mine is a partner in a micro brewery. He is the master brewer and makes awesome beer. I get it when ever I can which isn't that often since he's 200 miles away, 400 miles return trip.

 

The best Guinness beer I have had was actually at the Guinness brewery in Dublin. I could drink that at breakfast, lunch and supper;)

Guinness...good stuff. I often cook with it, especially when making gumbo. It adds a mellow richness which complements the smokiness of a really good gumbo. Not to mention the gumbo must be served with a Guinness the temperature of spring water fresh out of a country spring (about 43-49°) no colder.

I need to find some of this Guinness Foreign Extra. Hopefully someone local will sell it. If you found it on a cruise ship, great. I'll be on a Disney cruise at the end of November. They should have it.

Sorry to disappoint you, poochie; but NO, none of my dogs have been named Reefer (or Doobie, Blunt, Ganga, or anything similar!) :tongue5: 

 

Thanks, MacKenzie! He was a great dog. He is missed.

That goes without saying! Guinness in any pub in Dublin is better than any Guinness outside of island. The brewery its self being the best. It's a completely different drink from any they export.

I was saying the best bottled or tin Guinness is foreign extra: but of course you can't compare it to Dublin draft!

Guinness - sweet nectar of the gods! MacKenzie, you are absolutely correct .... Guinness for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And let's not forget Guiness for a mid morning and mid afternoon snack! ;)

Ah, thanks MacKenzie, another place to add to my must visit list! Of course for a girl of Irish ancestry who's birthday is St. Patrick's Day, Ireland should be first on my list!ðŸ€ðŸº

tonyb, your Guinness was a beauty. I can't even think about how heartbroken we are going to be when the inevitable happens with our 15-1/2 year old rat terrier....ðŸº
