North Coast Brewing Company

Recommended Posts

I'm comparing a Hacker-Pschorr Munich purchased at German Gourmet with a Scrimshaw Pilsner purchased at Lost Dog Cafe. The Hacker-Pschorr is fresh and interesting; the Scrimshaw is yogurt-smelling and moribund. To restate the obvious: Treatment from brewery to refrigerator accounts for quite a bit - there's no question in my mind that the Scrimshaw is damaged.



Yeah, Scrimshaw, when handled properly, is an exquisite pils. I suggest remedying this debacle with either a Hop Pocket Pils or the Troeg's Sunshine Pils. Or you could hunt down a Scrimshaw in better shape....

Anyone tried La Merle saison? This is good stuff.

Details are here: North Coast La Merle. 7.9% is on the high side, even for american interpretation. Haven't tried this yet, but it looks interesting. I'm constantly amazed at that brewery: they're able to crank out like 20 different beers, most of which are very good. The stuff they did for Whole Foods last year was pretty tasty (but I haven't seen it since, might have been a one-off experiment)

Somebody please make the work day end.
