San Diego just wrapped up it's 1st annual beer week and it was a huge
success!
I just posted in my blog about a Karl Strauss beer dinner
that we had - amazing!
 I'm very into craft beer and food pairings
right now and this did not let me
down.  The greatest surprise was the
dessert.  Who knew that beer could be
paired with a dessert!

I had a Karl Strauss Big Barrel Double IPA yesterday and it was
delicious!

What's with the double-IPA fad these days anyway?!  It seems like every
time someone gets a new beer in around here, it's a double-IPA....

I don't like them 'cause I _like_ the taste of a good IPA, but with a
double-IPA, can only drink half the beer for a given amount of
inebriation.

Re: Karl Strauss



The double, triple, imperials...are a sign of the times.  Its just been
this
line that keeps pushing forward.  All things do change however.
Session Ales
are making a comeback.  Thats lower alcohol beers that you
dont mind filling
your pint a few times over a session.  For now though,
I encourage you to ride
the wave while its still here.

Re: Karl Strauss


Ugh, I hate the recent fad for strong beers.  It usually has a negative
effect on the taste, and means you can drink _less_ delicious beer
before (being affected / reaching your limit / passing out)...

Abstainer, n. A weak person who yields to the temptation of denying himself a

abstention, and especially from inactivity in the affairs of others.

   On the other hand, think of it as a more intense pleasure.
What would you rather do, eat a whole box of Hostess Ho-de-doh's,
or a small portion of Death By Chocolate? A loaf of Wonder Bread
with mayo or one nice thick piece of fresh-baked whole-grain
bread with freshly churned butter?

High alcohol seems to have no correlation with intense or stronger
flavor though; many of these high-alcohol beers actually taste _worse_
than their more modest brethren.

Oooops. Well-known fact that alcohol is a taste carrier... One of the
multiple problems with nablabs...

Well about half a year slow but have you tried Levitation by Stone
brewing, 4.5% but still flavorful
