    Hey, omnipollo’s Abrahadabra was my first NEIPA or milkshake IPA and I loved it (4.5 on my untappd, btw). It’s less the beer that I hate and more the culture around it. I’ve been around too many haze bro’s that drive me insane.


    Also, Mark sucks. But I’d own a brewery with him!

    Also I was drinking a local NEIPA out of a beaker at a local brewery when I read this thread so y’all should get on my level

    Sometimes I wonder what the calories are on some of those pastry stouts or lactose ipas. I almost don’t want to know. I remember the first time I saw the nutritional facts on a Starbucks drink. Forever changed.

    I, without exaggeration, gained about 50 pounds since I started drinking craft beers.

    The worst is working in the industry. I have beer with lunch probably 3-5 times a week for work. Have an event that week? Tack on at least two beers on top of that. I drink way more beer now then when I was into craft beer just as a fan. Health while working in beer is, like, one of the hardest things to balance.

    I love craft beers, but that's one of the main reasons I mostly just drink Miller Lites, haha. No weight gain, no hangover. I still have crafts, but more so as a treat.

    I can't explain it, but I drink at least 2-3 craft beers a night - at least 5 nights a week - and I'm in the best shape of my life.

    Granted, I still find time for the gym at least three times a week and I don't really eat much anymore - and when I do, I try to eat mostly healthy.

    I probably gained more weight when I stuck to drinking domestics - simply because I'd be able to drink 6-8 (at least) in one sitting (then I would get hungry from drinking so much and eat shit food at midnight and then go to bed).

    I have no more than one in a single day unless I'm going out with friends on the weekend or to a brewery or something. On a normal night at home, I limit myself to one can if I have any at all. And since last August I go to the gym five days a week and have been eating healthier. It's a tough hobby to balance with health.

    Outstanding as usual. They’ve really nailed their German style beers.

    That guy they posted about is in my homebrew club and uses peppers in beers all the time and they’re always killer.

    Only pepper beer I’ve liked is from a brewery in the upper peninsula called Cognition who my work did a collaboration with last summer. They had a chocolate pepper porter or stout and they steeped the peppers in the chocolate they were using for the beer and added it in from that. Worked magnificently. Most pepper beers are not for me.

    Had a really good chocolate chili stout from Burlington Beer Co. when I was in Vermont called Ancient Power. Also this local brewery called Twin Elephant currently has an amazing chocolate pepper porter named Old Raritan. And Kane’s Mexican Brunch is phenomenal.

    Yeah, I think peppers can work in chocolate-esque beers when done subtly but the very few pale/IPA ones I’ve had I was not a fan of. Night Shift has a bourbon stout with poblano and cinnamon and nutmeg that is really good.
