Michael Page commented on Joe Fuller's blog post Green beer…revelation or abomination?
"Why not?  I think the novelty of the green seasonal fades after St. Patrick's Day anyway, but I have often wondered why there is no green beer sold as packaged.  The same goes for red dyed ales (red ales are not really red to begin…"

Michael Page commented on Michael Page's blog post How do you prefer your beer?
"Frosty mugs usually only come to me when unsolicited by restaurant/bar establishments.  So I use my hands to melt the glass to try and quickly warm it.  Sure the interior frost melts to water and deintensifies the flavor of the beer, but…"

"I too enjoy warm beer. I prefer home brews warm and most beer that I buy from the shelves in the package store I cannot wait for them to cool after taking them home, so they too are warm. I do feel as though some flavors are more noticeable when the…"

"Frosted Glass= No No The "English Drink Warm Beer" is a misnomer, 50* F is less than room norm, we geeks would be happy at 50* or a bit less.  I prefer most of my IPA's much cooler"

"I think as our palates develop over time to the more complex craft beers on the market we begin to understand the importance of serving beer at certain temperatures. Stouts, porters, and most beers with the designation "imperial" (i.e.…"

"There's a huge difference between right-off-the-storeshelf warm and trunk-of-your-car-in-the-middle-of-August warm.  I didn't think I had to clarify that point, but for some reason I imagined someone seeing this thread and putting a…"

"I've never intentionally tried warm beer before. I mean I've heard the stereotype of "the English love warm beer, etc", but never gave it a shot myself. I think now I will. And nothing gives a better "foghorn" than a…"

"Same here.  I pull it out of the fridge a few minutes before dinner, pour it into a non-frosted glass, and go along for the ride as it evolves over the course of the meal.  When drinking from the bottle, I've got an…"

"Happy birthday... I like to savor a beer and note the flavor changes as it gradually warms. Not a fan of frosted glasses though."

How do you prefer your beer?

Today is my birthday.  What better way to spend your birthday than with your favorite CT beer?  Today I enjoy my day with a lukewarm Sea Hag.  It's something I've garnered from my great grandfather.  Warm beer is where you find the true flavors of a beer.  Even when poured in a frosty mug, my hands serve as the beer's insulator.  Sure there are times in the dead of summer when I prefer an ice cold brew, but in these warm winter months, there is nothing better than a cellar temperatured IPA or a…See More

Profile Information

Your Details
I love all beer and anything to do with beer. I am a novice homebrewer that would rather learn by failing miserably than to follow recipes and kits and make the same things thousands of others have done. Like my cooking style, I may use a recipe as a guide, but seldom do I follow it to the letter. I read as many beer magazines and forums as I can, and I am working on developing my taste bud memory to pick out the various flavors in beer to one day become a cicerone and beer writer.
Are you one or both of the following?

What are your favorite CT Beers?
Sea Hag and Naughty Nurse

I love beer, love the fact that someone ran with an idea I had long ago but never did anything with, and love that this site creates a vehicle for promoting quality craft beers in Connecticut.  I think it is long overdue and I hope it brings more beer drinkers in the state to appreciate our local…

Strange Brew

Posted on February 13, 2011 at 10:33am 5 Comments

I've been feeling under the weather for the last few days - something my 4 month old son gave me, I'm sure.  I have been taking some standard cold medicine, but I wondered whether those homeopathic remedies and foods with added health benefits were any help.  I began searching the internet for different remedies people have tried and investigated claims of miraculous recoveries only to find that as expected, there is no "cure" for the common cold.  Each remedy and food source just provided…

Thanks for the welcome Michael!  I not only do a lot of traveling (which always includes craft beer!) but always good to know about these resources for our PubQuest users/members too.  Cheers!
