Beer thread?

I'm sure that the beer is good but graphics like this would almost deter me from buying it.

Yeah. I don’t get the aggressive style graphics either. That’s just a personality thing though I think. A bit like with tattoos. I quite like them on some people but don’t understand the dragons and skulls and stuff. (Sorry to offend if anyone here is rocking a skull tattoo). :)
Edit. I bought the beer off a menu based on where it was produced and description.

OK. What do you think of 'enhanced' water brands like Liquid Death that seem to be shockingly popular?

Current marketing makes little sense to me in the modern world sometimes IMO.
 
Last night of a great holiday. Just a couple from this small brewery in Munich that is competing with all the Bavarian heavyweight brewers. The owners are from New Jersey.

Fascinating that Americans are schooling Bavarians on beer. Here, we mainly drink beer from over there!


Proud to be from New Jersey​

Last February, we were honored (and very surprised!) to be visited by the Governor of New Jersey, Phil Murphy! He is well known for supporting New Jersey-owned businesses, near and far. Governor Murphy, his wife Tammy, and a small delegation from NJ were interested in our unusual craft beer path to Munich. Their visit was the inspiration for our Jersey Shore Pale Ale!

Not schooling as such. Just offering an alternative. I went from their establishment to something much more traditional and opted for a local red wine with my pork medallions and red cabbage and potato dumpling.

I’m glad from an eating perspective to be almost back home. (In Singapore now). Asian food has a big influence in Australia which means getting lean protein with lots of vegetables without bulk carbs is easy. Three weeks of bread, potato, cheese and ham is hard when not used to it.
 
We went to San Francisco for the 2024 Chronicle Wine Competition Public Tasting on 2/17. It was first time since COVID they had public event and our second time attending it. Previous time we walked from/to Caltrain, 3.5 miles each way, that we rode from/to San Jose. This time we stayed in a motel on Lombard St and walked less than a mile each way. On 2/18, we walked to the Presidio to check out new Tunnel Tops area of what has been a National Park for nearly 30 years, then stopped on way back for last day of SF Beer Week event. We split special beer week appetizer and they gave us 4 ribs instead of 3 without asking. Beers were only OK, nothing that special.

Perhaps more interesting - Higgins. The Irish-Americans are colonizing Bavarian Beer Country.

I guess a larger market than opening the brewery in Ireland with its 5M residents.
