I drank this Imperial 'Breakfast' Cream Ale last weekend. I liked it a lot. Great clarity, creamy head, and the additional 'breakfast' ingredients were not overpowering.

I have a newfound respect for the Cream Ale style

I could use a cold one right now. Anything non-alcoholic?

Has anyone else tried Firestone's Lager? I'm having it now, but intrigued by others' opinions.

I've only tried their IPA's and darker wood-aged products. Never had a FW product that wasn't well made.

I usually pass by their station at the GABBWF. I'm usually drinking barleywines, there. And Firestone has never offered barleywines at the festival.

The lager was quite mediocre, which is s shame because I like most of their beers.

It should be ready to try in a few more days . . . Very small amount of hops, I'm hoping the malt and the maple should compliment each other well.

This sounds really good. How did it turn out?

I haven't brewed in almost a year, but am getting the urge to try something again. I'm thinking of trying some small 1 gallon batches so I can play around with some crazy things and not feel to bad if they don't work out .

That's the only pumpkin beer I find enjoyable.

I got a 30/50 in a recent competition with that maple beer. It was entered in the experimental category. Judges said it needed to be maltier, more true to the base style. I could not disagree. My drinking friends were very happy with it. Same competition, my imperial stout took a silver out of 17 stout entries, I was most happy with that result and the stout that beat it took best of show.

BTW, it's National Beer Day here in the USA. I hope everyone is celebrating responsibly.

As long as your friends enjoyed drinking it, that's a pretty good reward for a homebrewer. Congratulations on your imperial stout getting a silver!

I'm still toying with the idea of doing some 1-gallon batches this year. I find that 5 gallons is somewhat unwieldy for me (a short, 50-something woman) to move around. And with one gallon, I could definitely experiment with less risk.

English beers...

Greene King https://www.greeneking.co.uk/our-beers/

Shepherd Neame https://www.shepherdneame.co.uk/beer

In my town we have three microbreweries and five micro pubs. We have a larger pub celebrated by CAMRA for their care of Shepherd Neame draught beers.

Thanks!

I've thought about doing the small batches too, but it's about the same time and effort for a small batch as it is for a large one. I brew with a son-in-law. I keep some and he and his friends drink the rest. It satisfies my desire for a hobby and works out well for him, my daughter and their friends.

They are all over. Overhopped and rampant. Have you ever tried to taste anything else after drinking a 100 IBU IPA?

That's definitely something to be jealous of. :0
And bought two bottles of (German) Franziskaner Kellerbier (cellar beer) today - since I'm a beer-over-wine girl - which I'll drink this evening and tomorrow evening.
