The membership rules were intact when I moved out here. I actually like them, because once you found a bar or two you liked, you would usually frequent them more often, and you started to form a "camaraderie", if that makes sense.
They have since done away with that as well.
Provo is definitely different than Salt Lake City though.
Not to hijack the thread, but how big of an impact does the glass have on the beer tasting experience? I saw a few different sets like this one http://www.truebeer.com/True-Beer-Gl...Set_p_104.html that has a variety of glasses for the different types of beer. Is it worth picking something like that up, or are there one or two styles that I should just purchase separately?
If you have any other advice for a noob, I'd be happy to hear it.
Anyway here's some info on the beeradvocate site about types of glassware: http://beeradvocate.com/beer/101/glassware.php
Thanks for the link on the glasses
I opened up the three philosophers tonight with dinner and I really like it.
I swung by the store and picked up a few more. What should I try next? I bought another gouden carols to age for a while so that one is out for now.
I'm not crazy about Arrogant Bastard. Would take Two Hearted any day. Completely different beers, obviously. Just sayin.
Haven't drank much at all int he past two weeks... just finished of a DFH Immort Ale and had a glass of New Belgium's Tart Lechee the other night at a bar. Tasty stuff. Had a little glass that was a mix of Ten Fidy and Hoptimum courtesy of the bartender after that, but it was maybe like four or five ounces. Just a taster glass.
i got to open my growler of happy hops over the weekend -- i am fairly certain that i love this beer even more than i love blind pig, it is so fruity and light.... i seriously need someone to ship me a growler whenever they have it on tap (who knows if it is a regular or not but i love it)... unfortunately i got this weird 48 hour flu and wasn't able to finish it so i had to drain pour about 1/3 of the growler.
excuse my completely cluttered counter. it's being overcome with bottles of wine and beer that need to migrate to my cellar.
i've noticed that quite a few of mine have etching now that Sam Adams did it years ago.
my favorite glass for belgians is this Lost Abbey piece:
any other beer is this Samuel Smith pint glass:
must have unsubscribed from this thread accidentally. picked up 2 750's of Lost Abbey Red Barn Ale in a trade yesterday. also put down a few $3.75 Gulden Draak Quad pints last night, feeling great today
