Try the double Bastard.

Guys I just found out I have a wheat allergy. I'm stuck choosing between gluten free beers. All 10 of them.

That sucks! Better move over to wine or mead.

Screw it! Drink in spite of your allergies. Teach your body who's boss.

You should try making your own hard cider. Cheap and easy to make and it's a similar drinking experience to beer.

I make 8% ABV german style apple wine at home. I'll buy 5 or 10 gallons of cheap apple juice when it goes on sale, add 2 lbs of dextrose per 5 gallons to boost the starting gravity and then ferment with Red Star Montrachet wine yeast. I use a $13 brew bucket and no boiling is necessary. Takes about 6 weeks to fully clear and condition. Tastes like super dry white wine with a hint of apple flavor and smell. I serve mine sparkling and cold. Insanely cheap - works out to about $2 or $2.50 per six pack.

Here's the link: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f25/man-...felwein-14860/

People on the homebrewtalk.org forums have made over 19,000 gallons of this stuff.

i've had friends make cider, but the yeast ferments all the way down and the cider comes out really dry. have you tried back sweetening? to give it more flavor?

Another apfelwein fanatic here.

I personally like my apfelwein dry, but I will backsweeten it in the keg when I am on beverage duty for a party. Tastes great either way.

The easiest way to sweeten it is just make the apfelwein stronger and add a splash of sprite when you drink it. This works quite well.

I'll usually drink it straight. Apfelwein is weird stuff. The first time you try it, you think, "WTF is this?" and it tastes like dry, sour wine. Then you drink a little more and a little more and after your second pint you finally "get it".

Sometimes I'll mix in a little diet soda to add a touch of sweetness. Like 1-3 ounces of diet sprite in a 20 oz imperial pint glass. Sounds gross, but it works and it brings out some more apple.

Sometimes I'll drink it straight in a big goblet or pint glass. Other times, when I'm partying, I'll fill up a big gulp cup full of apfelwein and ice. I've even mixed it with rockstar.

Founders Red's Rye P.A. is some truly amazing brew.

Enjoying this before the night begins. love this stout. It definitely needs to be room temp. Big coffee and chocolate flavors are released. Really good and can't even notice the 7.5% ABV.

Cheers guys

My heart goes out to you... I would cry.

Perhaps you can find joy in some wine, many people do. Russo may have some advice for you.

Curious about the redemption, has anybody tried it?
If I could get Pliny the Elder here....

I homebrewed a clone of it, it was like 16 ounces of hops in a five gallon batch. Just a killer beer.

A few I wrote down at the World Beer Fest last weekend..

Westbrook Brewing White Thai - citrus, floral flavor. Really light and easy to drink

Tommyknocker Maple Nut Brown Ale - just what it sounds like

Belhaven Wee Heavy - Not normally of a fan of Scotch ales but this one was GREAT

Rogue Black Lager - like other black lagers, chocolate and coffee flavors are prominent, but this one stood out and I'm a black lager/stout guy

Holy Mackerel Old Man Hopper IPA - don't remember much of this one but it must have been good because I took the time to write it down

My Ride: gobbles oil like a B
Just bought a new sixer of Sam Adam's recent longshot winners..

i was amazed at how good they were. I really like all three of them, although the lavender ale is the best!

Russo, you'd love the Friar Hop Ale, it's like a belgian, but with a ton of hops, something that you don't taste too often. Also the blackened hop is good too, similar to the black cannon by clipper city brewing.

it was so good that i picked up another 6er the other day!

I've really enjoyed the Longshot series beers for the last few years. Last years DIPA was great!

Here's one of my scores from tonight:
