I even heard NPR talk about this today, they interviewed Jim Koch (Founder Boston Beer Company - Sam Adams Lager, etc) which makes a good tie in, an All-American beer brewed (or at least HQ) right there in Boston MA.

Sam Adams' Founder Lauds White House Beer Meet : NPR

Of course the interviewer asked some stupidly worded Qs - "will they be drinking Lager, or something full bodied?". There are Lagers and Ales and each can be as light or heavy as the brewer chooses. Oh well, the interviewer probably drinks White Zinfandel .

Jim did mention that he wished they would have chosen an American Beer. Remember, Blue Moon is from Coors which is at least 1/2 owned by Molson Canada ( and somehow tied in with SAB Miller in London - it gets complicated), Bud is totally owned by InBev, a Belgian company, and Red Stripe is Jamiacan brewed and owned.

Hmmm, so the Belgian Style Blue Moon is from a Canadian/US/English co, and the Belgian Company makes the "American Lager". That just seems wrong.

But then a good one was - " If they asked to brew a beer for the meeting, what would you make?" - Jim went on about drawing on ingredients from all over the world, and lagering them for a long time to allow the beer to blend harmoniously and mellow. That was pretty appropriate, I thought!

If they stray from American, there is always a "Black & Tan" (or was that too obvious?)




Cheers! - ERD50

Thanks, I noticed a while back I was approaching a 5,000. I don't know, kind of a mixed blessing. It reminds me of all the good stuff in this forum, but also reminds me that maybe I should step away from the computer more? Or at least listen more and talk less?

I don't usually drink ale to celebrate, I just drink ale.

That first line in second paragraph has a certain ring to it: "of course the interviewer asked some "STUPIDLY" worded Q's....". Where have I heard that before? Just had to get that one in.
