well, the photo turned out like shit. fuck it, its just beer
USA vs China (the beer edition)
in summary, the chinese PBR is far better. its a great lager! hops are more present, there is no harshness. the sweet backend isn’t cidery, etc… no wonder its a high end beer over there.
Charging Hippo: Zombie Jesus Dark Ale (when is he going to get a real website???)
Another win for me for scoring a pre-release bomber of charging hippo’s easter release beer. i am glad i know kyle because these surprise freebies are worth listening to him talk about comic-cons. he brewed this with some cadburry eggs—which i hate—so i never wanted to try it. but… im glad i got this one—and i think its the last one!!!?!!! im sorry you all have to wait until next zombie jesus day to get a try this (hopefully he brews it again next easter when the brewery is 100% up and running)
Tasting Notes: Bourbon, Hank Williams Jr, Sammy Davis Jr, Carls Jr. (and not jesus)
FWIW, you can get some yourself!
finally, the first public release!
(note: I know kyle personally, and am willing to score rare bottles for trades)

it’s like you start doing the Carleton and then plank and fall on your face but then you explode into a thousand miniature Donald glovers that have pork chops covering every inch of skin on your faces (all thousand)
I had this one a while back, and the only camera on me was my film camera…. just got the roll back and look, a beer photo!
IIRC, this one was high on the malt backbone, and low on the hop bitterness/flavor. looks like the internet agrees, and lots of ppl love it that way.
Way up here in seattle, our IPAs are balanced the other direction, low malt, high hop. i really can’t think of a local brewery that does a high malt low hop IPA. maybe someone should?
