    It is all choice, you may not like hopped up beers, my brother doesn't, he likes lighter beers with fruit. I don't say his choice in beer tastes like 'chit. He just likes something different, wood selection, one brand of stove vs another, each has its place.

    I <3 all beer, after a hard run I dont feel like an IPA, any light beer will do, but after a great dinner, in the fall, relaxing on the deck near the fire pit, bet your ass there is an IPA in my hand.

    I dont like fruity beer or bud light either. There are a lot of strong, dark and flavorful beers that are not hop heavy.

    No offense to hop heads. just not my thing.

    How is ushing the phrase "tastes like chit" anything but offensive to someone who likes hoppy beers. I know you are talking in the third person for someone else, but you made it up!lol You could have said "we dont like the taste" or "not the best tasting"..LOL instead you told everyone that likes IPA's they enjoy the tast of Chit.... I am still wondering how you know what chit tastes like...

    Now Im just giving you a little chit

    Yep... and I stand by it!

    It's okay, Augie... there are plenty of IPA's out there for you to enjoy. Breweries are businesses, and they'll make beer for folks with bad taste, too... if they can sell it!

    i just trying to get what you guy's taste of beer is. i love trying new beer. new for me that is. you guy's say you don't like hoppy beer yet i tried Three Philosophers Quadrupel. had all i could do to finish the i think 22 oz bottle. way way way to much hops in that batch. but the one thing i did notice besides the hops is if drank to quickly it would sit ya right back down. strong stuff alc wise.

    Interesting comment, fbelec. Philosophers is a fairly low hop beer, usually described as sweet and/or fruity. It's rated 92 on Beer Advocate, which is a pretty solid rating for a Quadrupel ale. Like any proper quad, it has some kick... not for consumption before operating a chainsaw!

    http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/42/3457

    A local bar does big events for Goose Island brewery, but I've only tried a few of their brews. All quality stuff... They definitely know their brewing!

    Unfortunately, I've never had anything I liked from Mad Hatter. I had to throw away most of a case of their Hextober brew, when I couldn't give the stuff away.

    Mad Hatter seems to like extremes. Not really one of my goto brewerys.

    I like hoppy beers, but I am incredibly sensitive to others opinions and insults. And I hate ice cream and boobies.

    I had haggis once. It was 4:30 am, on a street corner in Edinburgh, and the Irishman I was with asked the cab driver if he had a daughter. Thought I'd end up one of those bog people.

    Oh- the haggis was great. Fried with brown sauce

    What do you guys think of beer festivals? Everyone I have been to I wind up with piercing pains in my stomach afterwards from trying so many different beers, and no I am not drunk.

    I try to go from light beer to dark at the end and vise versa but still the same result.

    I don't frequent beer festivals, but most brews have gluten in them and some of the symptoms of gluten intolerance are abdominal pains, heartburn, and lots of other nasties dealing with the intestinal tract.

    Some folks have problems with naturally carbonated beverages due to the yeast not haven been killed off or removed by filtering.

    Then there are possible allergens considering the grain and adjuncts used in brewing.

    It also helps if you remember to eat something since you are imbibing a stomach irritant.

    Take your pick or mix and match.

    I am eating before going, but maybe that is part of the issue, what is the best thing to eat before going to an event like this?

    Well since I don't go to the festivals I can only tell you what I have with my brews when I go out for a brew or so ( the primary menu http://www.braysbrewpub.com/beer.html ) never had any tummy issues, a good ole sausage platter, you know, sauerkraut, fried potatoes, a roll, three different sausage links, and three different dipping sauces (two mustards and a horseradish sauce). Just a bit of starch in that platter. I must warn you that I've been known to need a nap after such an outing.

    Before I had kids I went to a few. Harpoon Oktoberfest a couple times, and once went to a brewfest at Allagash when a friend worked there.

    The festivals themselves never got me, rather it the after party that does you in.

    The big one I always wanted to get to around here but never made it is the annual Boston beer summit.
