Very cool!

The similarly-named Beer Hunter: The Movie is a documentary about Michael Jackson's career, and his later struggles with Parkinson's disease. It is very much worth watching. It was funded via Kickstarter but did not see a commercial release. It's generally only available at event screenings, but if you're interested in seeing it PM me.

Shoot. The videos were marked with a copyright violation, but said they should be viewable in the US and Canada. I'll just upload them to Google Drive instead

Trachalio you rock! Thank you. Google Drive shows up no problem. Gonna download them later today.

I watched it a while back, enjoyed it and want to see it again, but can't find the copy I had DM Sent

Thanks, Trach. I watched the first video. Anchor Christmas Ale was something I coveted years ago. It was one of the first really good beers around. I look forward to the second video.

I'm not sure the lack of alcohol is what's really going to drive my decision in this case.

After fiddling around with Google Translate, all it could make out was:

"Ramen Evening! Challenge to try!!"

"Glass 109"

"Watch the Teeth"

No.

I'm sort of wondering what the 159 and 199 options are. But then I look back at the original 109 base product, and decide that if the other two look the same, then the differences in composition are irrelevant.

I don't need any more glassware; I think I have just about every style of beer glass I could possibly use.

But.

I really NEED these

If there was any question on whether craft beer has gone to far with styles, I think that can now be answered definitely.

Bull Testicle Beer

Hey I've actually had a beer by the other brewery in that article - the one in Iceland, Stedji. The wife and I went to Iceland for our honeymoon and we tried a number of beers from breweries there. For such a small country they have a good thriving brewery scene. The one I tried from Stedji was most definitely NOT the whale testicle beer though! God damn that sounds horrible. According to the old untappd check-in I had their Rauchbier, and apparently I enjoyed it quite a bit.

That question was answered long ago with bacon donut beer or the plethora of pumpkin beers that turn up every halloween.

I'd take a bull ball beer over any of those vile tipples.

I actually had a pumpkin beer that was surprisingly decent. I still wouldn't say it was necessary, but I drank it.

I drank that abomination of a beer long ago, as I would assume all (or most) of the regulars in this thread did (if it was available to you). But, at least for me, drinking a mango donut beer is a much easier proposition than selling me on a beer made with the testicles of bulls.

f*ck. That. sh*t.

Didn't touch the Mango one but did have the Maple Bacon. Best thing about it was the pink bottle was gorgeous. I heard from a friend that the beer made a terrific marinade.

Tried my first oyster stout a couple years ago at Home Brew Con in Minneapolis (real oyster, not the Rocky Mountain variety). It was a commercial brew, not home brew. It was fine. They played off the briny character. I begrudge nothing when it comes to creativity and experimentation in brewing. Scratch Brewing has does some incredible beers taking a foraging approach to using bark, nuts, leaves, etc, from trees on their property in Southwestern Illinois. Very well thought out beers that are tasty and unique experiences. Their Hickory beer is fantastic.

My issue is with breweries that are throwing a beer out their for pure attention and financial gain with little care or thought as to the quality of the product. To be fair, that goes for a number of standard offerings from breweries as well. The glut of crappy kettle soured beers or milkshake IPA come to mind. It makes it much harder to sort out the good from the bad.

Take a bourbon barrel aged blueberry cheesecake stout. That sounds like a frakking nightmare of a beer. In the hands of most breweries, it is. Blueberry is a nightmare fruit to brew with in general. Yet this variant of Omnipollo's Anagram is one of 28 beers (out of 500+ checked in) I have rated as 5 stars on Untapped.

Eh. Meat is meat. Anyone that eats an egg without batting an eyelid ain't got no room to be complaining about balls - eggs are downright disgusting when you think about it.

Like all animals, they have an input and an output.

well not ALL animals, but i'm sure it's acceptable to be chordate bilateria chauvinists here based on the context ;), i meant that birds only have one exit hole compared to mammal's three.

Because this is what the craft beer industry was missing, Dogfish Head partners with Kodak to create a beer that doubles as film developer

I started saying long ago that Dogfish Head had stopped being a brewery, and had become a marketing company that sometimes produced beer. Still feeling pretty good about that assessment these days.
