Default The Craft Beer Thread

Hello homies.

After resolving a series of personal issues and completely changing my life, in the fallout I have left my personal religion in favor of a more generally spiritual one.

So this post-Mormon was lucky enough to live in a state with some of the est beers in the country!

This thread is dedicated to craft beers. I'm a total novice, but that newness has afforded me some great perspective and some lack of biases. The result is diving into a beer world new and unsullied.

Here's what I'm having right now as we speek:



Great divide has some great stuff. I loved the Oatmeal Yeti - I had it after we won the Super Bowl, and I wanted to try an aged beer. It's a smooth pour, dark head and is almost black. It leads with chocolaty vanilla notes, and has a strong bitter and creamy taste. I can taste the oak very well and it has some nice earthy elements. It's quite heavy, though. All said, I prefer the oatmeal to the oak aged. But I'm glad I tried it.

Aw man, welcome to the land of barley and hops. Highly suggest going to one of the better craft breweries and ordering up a tasting flight so see what you like. I am partial to sours right now and hop bombs.

If you want to really understand sours the best place to go is The Crooked Stave in The Source (RINO). Caution - they're not for everyone.

Storybook Brewery in Colorado Springs has some good beers. I also like Blue Moon, and am partial to Avery's (Ellie's Brown and White Rascal) but their new tasting room in Gunbarrel is very hipsterish.

Copper Kettle in Denver has an interesting Mexican Chocolate Stout with cayenne pepper.

Beer snobs are funny because they're harmless. Scotch snobs are a clear and present danger to humanity.

This was posted in the "Dude, where's my religion?" thread in the WR&P forum. Totally understand if you missed it because it's basically a cesspool of hatred with the occasional cogent thought.

I no longer wear the "magic underwear" (it's quite comfortable) and I no longer attend meetings.

There's a lot of reasons why, and I won't go into all of them, but the big ones are:
  • The LDS Church is struggling. Many of the men are addicted to porn and many of the women are depressed. They teach it as a plan of happiness, but few in the church are actually happy.
  • Their stance on homosexuals and especially homosexual children is pretty bigoted.
  • If there was only one true church of God, I don't believe after almost 200 years of being on the Earth it would have only 6-7 million active members.
  • I don't believe Joseph Smith really translated the Book of Mormon from Gold plates. I think the Book of Mormon is inspired reading and has some amazing stories. But I believe the Native Americans came across the land-bridge.
  • I believe God just wants me to be kind and love my family and my fellow man. I don't think he cares if I drink or watch an R rated movie.

There's a lot of other things, but I'll just say it no longer works for me. I haven't been a practicing Mormon for several months and I'm happier and at peace. I still pray to God. We still have family time. We've kept what we like. For example I had a family home evening lesson with my daughter the other night and the subject was different families - races, genders, single parents, same sex parents, etc. I taught her that they were all families and they all love their children the same.

I still love Mormons. I'll still defend the faith when people say lies about it as many are wont to do. I don't regret my experience in the church. I don't regret my mission. I believe for some people being LDS works and is awesome. But for many it is clearly not working. It didn't work for me anymore and wasn't making me happy. I had to walk away. I am happier because of it.

I know this will hurt and anger some of my Mormon friends on this site. Some of whom are my favorite people. But I want to be real about who I am and what I believe. And I prefer to be honest and critical than to lie so some think better of me.

It's not quite like that.

By the way, I was able to merge my board game hobby with craft beer at this place last Saturday:

The Malice and Darkness was good.



Beautiful location and it was gorgeous outside. We played Flux and King of Tokyo.

Wow.....I didn't know that, Khan.

I'm glad you are happy, now. That's the most important thing, IMO.

Blue Moon is pretty underrated actually. It's too crafty for normal beer drinkers, and too mainstream for craft beer drinkers. Be proud of your beer, Ludo!

So should I talk beer or ask if Kaylore is a Jack Mormon now?


Should we invite Freak6 back to the Mane?

Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy. Suddenly I'm thirsty.

This makes me happy. Religion is the only sure fire way to deny spiritual growth. Leave that for the stagnant types. Congrats.

He needs to spend at least two summers drinking Henry Weinhards and looking down at the fools drinking Lucky Lager and loving it.

Good choice but not cheap. Best places to test out craft beer is California and Colorado.

Kaylore, if you like Blue Moon then try other Belgium Whites. Total Wine and More has a great selection and many near the cost but better taste.
