    The important stuff: What beer?

    What beer is going to be available at the rally? I'll reserve my opinion of midwestern beer for later in the thread.

    I'll be on the hunt for crisp pilsners with good bite, hoppy IPAs, sturdy chocolatey stouts, even fresh Hefeweizens or dare I even suggest a Lambic or two. Anything but stuff like the Wisconsin beer we tried last November at some supposedly famous brew place where every beer I sampled was a variation on sweetened budweiser strained through a dirty sock. Maybe I just forgot to add the cheese.

    I prefer my belgians un-fruited. But I'll mostly be on the hunt for pilseners. Best, IMO, are the german - Bitburger, Radebeger or even old faithful, Spaten.

    Ah, yes. Thank you. I'll muddle through so long as I stay away from the New Glarus Spotted Cow which is the exact beer that reminded me of unfortunately bland sweetened sweaty budweiser.

    WOW...beer drinking has got so complicated. Used to be a bag of pork rinds, a cold Bud and a juke box would do just fine...

    But I am looking forward to new brew, as long as it's cold.

    Be nice. I can rename you.

    I usually tell people that I don't like overly hoppy beer, but I forget that hoppy anywhere else is nearly a golden lager around here.

    I like beer. I have to try them to know if I like them. New Glarus? The stuff I had was OK and didn't suffer too badly from the usual over malt and over hop problem most microbreweries suffer from.

    Anybody know if I can get a SNPA there?

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    Ale??

    Is there a possibility of a darkish hoppy ale? I have no (almost none) taste.

    beer is very similiar to bread...
    some people like the taste of wonder bread beers that can handle 6 week ocean voyages with temperature extremes and rough handling, traveling sometimes thousands of miles before being drank.

    others prefer the still warm fresh bread taste of the local bakery down the street

    luckily hops are a preservative in beer, and provide something to taste after the delicate flavors have been destroyed

    Definitely a subjective medium.
    If everyone liked the same things wouldn't this be a boring world?
