I'll be kegging my latest all grain homebrew creation this weekend, "Fonzi's Last Swill," a west coast style IPA absolutely loaded with hops. Should be a real face twister...  :D

So, how are these canneries and breweries eliminating the 'metallic' taste often found in beers in cans? Teflon coated cans?


Pour it in glass, just like from keg to glass   ;)

kegs are stainless steel (there are very few plastic ones) but aluminum cans have had a lining in them since the 70's.

in a related note, i wasted a perfectly good weekend pouring beer in boston when i should have been climbing. SHE, oddly enough, went bouldering here.

Thanks Benny for the info about the cans.  I did NOT know that.
Yes, the wx this weekend was just about as good as one can hope for this time of the year.  But bugs were somewhat bad.

For tonight's dinner (fish), I went with a nice, crisp French Sauvignon Blanc but I might just have a Long Trail later; hoping to catch a recap of either Sox or Yankee game from this afternoon.

No- you have the fish with the wine   ;)

I actually have a small plastic keg 10 liter, it's cool . Lightweight and holds just enough . We have used a few aluminum kegs and can't tell much diff.

I meant the (Opa-Opa) IPA
Very good.  Thanks for the tip, John.   Just had one with dinner.  I am going to have another while watching the Sox game tonight (had to skip last night's due to rain delay).

Sierra Nevada Torpedo - a good IPA for the summer; nice flavors, good body w/o being too heavy! :)

Avery's IPA comes in cans as well and is very tasty after climbs. My favorite is Avery's Maharaja Imperial IPA, 10.5% alcohol so it can kick your a$$ but it is yummy! The Maharaja is seasonal from March - Sept and not distributed to many places so if you can get it, try it. I'm lucky I live 5min from their taphouse  ;D Stone Ruination IPA is my second favorite.

Avery is good climbing beer since it can withstand pack abuse and then crushes down.

Crown Royal may be considered to take the place of a beer if poured in excess of 6 ounces.
