Re: “The happy hopper

Only Picaroons in New Brunswick exceeds Sea Level's infection rate. Why can't these 2 brewers address this long standing quality problem? Clean up your act gentlemen or sell your brewery to someone who knows and cares about quality craft beer. Your reputation is in the toilet.

Re: “Boundary war

ProKeds says it all.

The author's warped sense of self serving logic is no doubt brought on by his affinity for ethanol. If you’re interested in more nonsense you should check out his views on drinking & driving and what he calls “kid friendly bars”.

Re: “Low-BAL pitch

After reading Pinhey's articles and Twitter comments about his numerous "tasting sessions" one has to wonder how often his BAL has been over 0.08? Be honest now Mr Pinhey, do you ever push the limit before driving?

Re: “Low-BAL pitch

Setting the legal limit at anything other than zero is an open invitation for some people to guess and thus risk a disaster. If you drink don’t drink, it’s that simple.

Re: “Hop on board

Bleh...your "doing it right" is just common brewing practise for aroma hopping. I'm still not buying it!

Re: “Hop on board

Sorry Bleh I'm still not getting/buying it. Please explain "doing it right" as it relates to the brewing process.

Re: “Hop on board

For years the big breweries have rightly been accused of devising gimmick after gimmick in order to sell beer. It now sounds as if the micros have decided that if you can’t beat them, join them. Make no mistake, wet hopped beer is a gimmick.

And what's with the vegetable comments? Veg isn't something normally associate with hops - except with excessive dry hopping. Is it possible that the large mass of leafy hops has affected the kettle boil?

I’d be interested to know how bleh would characterize "wet hop" beer.
