    Funniest thing heard in the Cannonball Pub two weekends ago; waitress "Would you like something to drink?" alex "Yes an HSA" waitress "How do you spell that?"
    Wait, what? Assuming I'm the Alex in this story, who are you? Chris?

    I just got into homebrewing. I've made some solidly mediocre beers so far, so I'm pretty stoked about that.

    Admittedly biased toward MRG but will note one of the great things about Gen. Stark's Pub is the (usual) availability of Lawson's Finest Liquids on draft - brewed in nearby Warren by the head of MRG's naturalist program, and only available very locally.

    Good reasonably priced food too there including some tasty healthy options. One limitation is the windows on the front aren't big enough for a great view of the main mountain but this is addressed in the proposed Base Area Master Plan.

    On warm spring afternoons the deck out front is one of the greatest places on Earth.
    '13-14: 12/18 Mt Agamenticus, 12/27 Crotched, 1/4 local, 1/5 local, 2/5 Bradford, 2/7 Bradford, 2/13 local, 2/16 local, 2/18 Magic, 3/1 Crotched, 3/5 local, 3/11 MRG, 3/12 MRG, 3/13 MRG, 3/14 MRG, 3/15 MRG, 3/16 MRG, 3/17 MRG, 4/6 MRG, 4/10 Mt. Cardigan, 4/18 Cannon
    TOTAL: 21 (7 earned, 7 POW, 3 spring corn, 3 different NELSAs, 2 Midnight Madness)

    I brewed one that was around 8% and it was oat based. It was awesome!!!! Brewed a Scotch ale that was almost 10%!!!! Two 22's and you were not going any where.
    I don't judge a beer's chick status by abv, I judge it by taste and how often chicks drink it. Carton Boat Beer and Founders All Day IPA are two IPAs with abv in the 4s but I would never call them chick beers.

    I've been brewing almost two years but haven't tried the Belgian white as a style.

    Oh, and Hoegarden is technically a amBev product now, no?

    Mount Snow: 12/5, 12/6, 12/7, 12/20, 12/21, 1/10, 1/11, 1/24, 1/25, 1/31, 2/1, 2/7, 2/8, 2/21, 2/22, 2/28, 3/1, 3/7, 3/8, 3/15, 3/21, 3/22, 3/28, 3/29.

    Total Days: 24 total (no April days, no vacation...baby #1 on the way in April!)

    Micro-mediocre brews still sell. The important question is do you have an intriguing name and label? Something slightly risque will cover up several taste points. Try "Squirrel's Nut Zipper" or "That's What She Said". A dog on the label wins points over tastes also. How about "Chocolate Lab Stout"?

    If you can raise the abv while still getting chicks to like the taste and drink it frequently...you have brewed the brew to fill the holy grail. Unfortunately so far the holy grail has continually been found to contain Mike's Hard Lemonade

    Southern Tier Crème Brulée Stout fits that bill! Damn easy to drink, sweet enough that even most casual female beer drinkers like it, and at 9.6% ABV its got some kick too it in a "stealthy" Mike's Hard Lemonade/Woodchuck Cider/ Smirnoff Ice kind of way
    '07--08 season: 51 Days, '08-'09 season: 55 Days, '09-'10 season: 41 Days, '10-'11 season: 49 days, '11-'12 season: 40 Days '12-'13 season: 57 days, '13-'14 season, 60 days '14-'15 season 60 days, '15-'16 season 52 days, '16-'17 season: 50 days '07-'17 seasons: 515 Days

    Sounds like panty peeler, if I've ever heard it.

    I was thinking something with a bear and a halo, but I like your idea much better. I probably don't even have to brew a chocolate flavored stout and it would sell well.

    The casket was from the no more Village House restaraunt in Franconia.They used it every St.Pats day like an irish funeral and people posed inside it.It turned into a running joke to steal it and bring it somebodys house and leave it.He brought it up the on the tramway and dragged it down to the rock with a rope on either end.Later that day they made it all the way to the bottom using the same method.When I got to my ski house at that time in Franconia later that night,I found it on my downstairs bar!Not sure where it ended up now.
