Don't get me wrong about hops. I dig hops. I'm just burned out on hops. The last few years, every microbrewery has been double and triple hopping everything. Too much of a good thing.

As for Shiners, the Spoetzl Brewery backed up to the family farm of my wife's godfather. So, they always have a sixer of Shiners on hand.

I asked a friend who runs a real ale pub about the hop trend at the moment, and he tells me it's just what sells - dark beers move a lot more slowly, even in the winter.

I guess a lot the growth in ale drinkers in recent years is people switching from lager - a light hoppy beer is going to be less of a leap for them than something dark and caramelly...

One of the best specialty liquor stores around San Francisco - Cask.

Even though its one that I have never made - I'd say Duvel is in the top 5 beers in the whole world. Out of the beers I have brewed -  Worthington White Shield is top class.

Some rye we've been drinking. I know rye is "hot" right now -- I think for good reason. Dollar for dollar, this is one of the best I've tasted.

^ I'm drinking Bulleit Bourbon. I'm trying to get the rye at an affordable price. I like the Duty Free option. I couldn't find any on a recent vacation though so I picked up another bottle of bourbon along with Hennessy White & Domaine de Canton

^How pricey is hooch in NYC (you are in NYC, right?)? I think the rye goes for less and $25 in SLC. Utah is weird, though (state liquor monopoly). You cannot buy cheap beer, but it seems that spirits are pretty affordable. In fact, I'm always surprise at how expensive hooch is in California.
