    Those foeders on the back are gorgeous! Anyone know of small scale (assuming that's the target market) breweries using those?

    I don't know where they got them, but Haw River Farmhouse Ales in North Carolina has a pair of small foeders. Check it out:

    We ordered them direct from Tonnellerie Radoux in France and had them shipped over for us. These are 30hL apiece for two of our brett-based "year-round" beers (our flagship Saison and our Belgian-style Double IPA), so we wanted to make sure they were as clean as possible without any bacteria or other unwanted bugs in the walls (we intentionally inoculated each with a particular strain/mix of brett, but no bacteria in either). Tasting great so far (the virgin batch of each has yet to be pulled) and we're excited about getting them into full rotation this summer.

    So I just subscribed to the BA magazine. Not because of the great articles, homebrew recipes, or best of lists. It's because every time I go to the BA homepage I see this month's cover with the super cute Melissa Antone from Avery. They need to (or should do again if it's already been done) a girls in brewing edition. I'll always keep coming back for the beer, but girls and beer? That will keep me waiting @ the mailbox for the next issue.

    ^I have many friends who would argue equally for a "dudes of brewing" calendar.

    Related note: I volunteered at EBF in February and took a photo of Sam Calagione and posted it to FB. At least 10 of my female friends, none of whom had any idea who he was, responded along the lines of "who the hell is that hottie?"

    So the demand is there across all sexes and demographics :slight_smile:

    Thanks for subscribing. We don't have any plans for a "ladies of brewing" edition (or a "Hunks and Hops" edition for that matter), but our covers will continue to feature the men and women who make the craft brewing industry awesome.

    I really enjoyed the feature on Swanky Beer and the continued piece on Berliner Weisse, really great reads even for a layman such as myself.

    I was not sure where to post this but I have not seen it anywhere else so I wanted to see if anyone noticed that the beer review for Surly Doomtree talks about it being a bitter when it is really a Belgian Style Pale Ale?

    I've haven't heard Belgian Pale Ale yet though I have seen it listed as an ESB, Bitter, Biere De Garde, & Belgian IPA. From Surly's website: "Surly suggests, a “bastardized style” that will build on a classic, but buck convention." I never really tasted anything Belgian about it.

    From that it sounds like they are simply toying with us a bit, I did email them on it but no reply back. American Bitter is the best I could come up with being "American" ... that can be nearly anything. ;-)

    Jason, Thanks for the reply. For some reason when I google Doomtree I get this: Doomtree is a Belgian Pale Ale style beer brewed by Surly Brewing Company in Brooklyn Center, MN. 85 out of 100 with 282 ratings, reviews ... but I don't see this on the review page. I was just not sure if the review got mixed up with Bitter Brewer.

    Google caches content. If you look at the actual listing it's been updated. Mistakes like this happen when dealing with a lot of users and their opinions on what things should be.
