Re: “Talking Head: Thanksgiving beers: Don't serve a turkey with your turkey

A doppelbock like Ayinger Celebrator or Spaten Optimator would also be a spanking good choice with the pork loin, Rusty. Or French Broad's Altbier if you can find it. Pork-wrapped pork, eh? I like the way you think, son.

Re: “Beer pick of the week: Red Brick Peachtree Pale Ale

I would agree that Taco Mac is the best bet for finding P'tree Pale Ale on tap, although you might be frustrated if you just show up at one, since the selection varies from store to store. I would contact the brewery, and they could at least point you to the person who would know. As far as know, the beer I had was fresh.

Re: “Beer pick of the week: Great Divide 15th Anniversary Ale

I think this is somewhat of a personal consideration. Many people will tell you that DIPAs should not be aged, since the intended hop character will fade in time, and this one has already been aged for some time. Still, I find some big beer like this benefit from 6 months to a year of aging to further meld the flavors and take some of the burn off the alcohol. I would try it fresh first, and if you find it satisfying, by all means enjoy it now. I plan to put some away to enjoy during the winter months and I'll let you know how it fares.

Re: “Talking Head: New brew review

No need, Will. You just did. Actually, I covered the New Belgium arival last week. http://tiny.cc/N6ELx. I figured it would show up pretty much everywhere this week since it is being distributed by Atlanta Beverage, the distributors of AB-Inbev products. Should be in grocery stores by now.

Re: “Beer pick of the week: Moinette Blonde

I got mine at Tower on Buford Hwy (a mile outside the Perimeter). They're actually having a sale on single bottles of Belgians and other imports for Tower Club members. You can get your card at the register when you check out. The Moinette was 50 cents off, while most of the 750 ml bottles were a dollar off. This was last week, so you might want to call first if you are coming from a long way away. Incidentally, my second bottle did not bubble over. Just another one of the great things about Belgian beers--variability.

Re: “Talking Head: Serious sustainability at New Belgian Brewing Company

To illustrate just how different this company is, the employees voted to take a cut in their profit-sharing benefits in order to finance the more expensive wind energy. Can you see the Board of Directors of a publically-owned company doing that, even now that it is cool to be green? I think not.
