Dear Fellow Beermates,

In ancient Mesopotamia, about 5500 BC, the Sumerians produced an alcoholic beverage that fermented spontaneously. They called it Sikaru, and it was the premium beer of its day, brewed from 60% malt, 40% raw wheat, used wild yeast strains, and was flavored with aniseed and cinnamon.

The popular art of cultivating strains of brewer's yeasts has left almost all spontaneously fermented beers in the shadows but for the Lambic beers, which are exposed to the wild yeasts and bacteria that are said to be native to the Senne valley, in which Brussels lies.

Let this community be a focal point for sharing your beer-tasting appreciation as well as for renewing in the mind and memory the world's ancient brewing traditions.

Jan. 30th, 2008 @ 01:57 pm The Art of Beer and Cheese

A Trappist monk of Chimay dedicates his life to God, and to making beers and cheeses that gladden the heart of man.

In this modern day and age, the Chimay monastery has an internet connection, and on their very own and special website the Trappist monks are sharing with us some of their favourite recipes:

http://www.chimay.com/en/gastronomy_55.php

Choose your recipe from the CHIMAY selection of beer and cheese. You can make it a soup, entrée, main dish, dessert, or liqueur.

Bon Appétit!

Cheers!
Chimay

Aug. 20th, 2004 @ 01:22 pm "Budweiser" is German for "Bath Water"
STOP DRINKING BUDWEISER!

Anheuser-Busch now considers me a “Beermaster.” Whoop-dee-&#^%$-DOO! I attended their hokey “school” (essentially an extended commercial for Budweiser). What do they teach you? They teach why their beer is better than their competitors through vague descriptions, misinformation, jingoistic patriotism and Budweiser-pride that cause you to check your shoe sole to see what you stepped in.

They had trouble with a few questions… like how come the Bud label claims (paraphrasing) it uses the most expensive ingredients and that A-B knows of no other brand that costs as much to brew. So… if that is true, why is Michelob more expensive and considered their “Super-Premium” beer?
