      Thanks, we need to print this one. Think our beer style varies with the temperature. Now I’m enjoying amber ales and lower, in another few months it will likely be reversed.

      Amber Ales seem to be the thing right now. Whenever we go out or away I ask the server for a local type beer that isn't porter dark and that has no fruit in it. I cant stand lemon or grape fruit beers. On our last Vegas and our trip to Buffalo in Jan everyone seemed to recommend and Amber Ale.

      I started to keep a spreadsheet of the names and places that I tried different beers.

      You should try the app Untappd. It lets you log the beers you've had and add comments, location, serving style, etc.

      That's great thanks. I added a beer which took me awhile but once I get the hang of it I should be able to add my list in no time at all. I have been going back over four years of Vegas trips trying to remember where I was and what I drank. Not easy.

      Hey thanks Woody! I prefer ales and hefeweizens this time of year, add porters and stouts when it's really cold. Lagers go down well in the summer and like you I don't really like the citrus-y ones or the very heavily hopped beers. Used to really like Black Coal Stout by Railway City, now it's a little too heavy for my liking.

      Being from beer city, USA, seriously I think we just opened our 61st brewery this weekend, Also it is Beer Month Grand Rapids Beer Month Events Schedule we consume a lot of beer. You beer scale is right on but it is missing a lot of what I would call serious beers, Barley Wine, I would put at the bottom below Stouts. Dunkel and Bock I would put in the middle. Honey beer, not mead, we have a few meaderies here too, fruit beers and herbed beers towards the top.

      Then All the beers can be Wood Barrel Aged, some lend themselves to this better than others, to give a rich woody flavor or absorb what ever was in the barrel before into the beer. For example this weekend I had a Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial stout, so very good but even I was done after my 3rd, it was a strong 16%

      Then again all of them can be soured as well by using wild yeast strains. This is the way beer was originally created getting a much broader flavor profile. I have really come to appreciate sours. The extreme flavors you get from them can be quite interesting.

      Thats the nice thing about living where I live. Me and a few friends go out every week to a different brewery. I rarely have the same beer more than once a year. If I do I really like it. Brewery Vivant is one of the best breweries here. Their regular stuff is ok but their seasonal variations are awesome. Right now, Brewery Vivant Contemplation is out. It is a honey beer, this is one I buy 2 cases of and will have occasionally through out the summer. Shorts brewing has Queen Bee, which is a another honey beer, that I love. In the fall Brewery Vivant has I think the best pumpkin beer, Brewery Vivant Pumpkin Tart. Again I usually get a couple cases to last me through the winter. The final one will come as no surprise to those that know me. Odd Side Ales, Peanut Butter Cup stout is top on my list. It seriously is almost like drinking peanut butter cups. It is a chocolate stout, brewed with real peanut butter. It is so smooth. Oh and Hideout Brewing Company makes a Bacon Stout. Yeah seriously a stout beer brewed with fresh smoked bacon. You can taste the bacon in there as well that is quite awesome. It comes out in the fall just in time for the Beer and Bacon Festival.

      A lot of people think of Founders Brewery here. Founders is ok. They got really huge and I think the quality went down hill. I have been going to founders since early 2000's until a few years ago I gave up on it. The Head brewer quit, and then Opened Greyline Brewing. Their motto is we don't want to be the biggest brewery, we just want to brew the best beer you ever had. I go there a lot as the beer there tastes like the original founders before they became so commercial. A lot of the original wait staff and so on went along as well. So if ever in Grand Rapids and want to see and taste what Founders originally was like hit up Greyline Brewing.

      I keep looking at this beer scale, and I love it!

      My hubby and I have started brewing beer on a small scale for fun and our own consumption. I have been making a really yummy oatmeal chocolate stout, sometimes I vary it and add some fresh ground coffee beans, or vanilla, or lactose... I think my next stout will be a milk chocolate (cocoa nibs and Lactose in the first fermentation) peanut butter stout, and add some of that powdered peanut butter in the second fermentation. Sweet! Great idea Jeff, thank you!
