    Buffalo Bayou posted a pic on their Facebook of whiskey barrels filled with a sour beer. Any idea what it is? I know not everyone is a fan of them, but I'm curious what it could be

    Beer style A mixed with beer style B with unusual ingredients that sound like they would work, but just end up being sloppy.

    I think Buffalo Bayou is banking on, please beer gods make it work, or please have tickers just try what ever we put out. I have pretty much given up on them.

    I haven't given up on them because they've done a couple things I really like. And it's not like you have to buy a four or six pack of their stuff just to try it. I'm still interested in what they do even though most of the beers I won't buy more than once.

    Agreed, but I am tiered of trying sub par offerings. I think they have a good business plan. Make lots of different crap that does not mix, be a sub par Dogfish Head, and people will continue to try the new stuff. Though that is just me being over cynical. Take it for what it is worth...not much;)

    Did you have the gingerbread stout? I thought it was fantastic!

    If that is directed at me, I have had and reviewed most everything from Buffalo Bayou. IMO, it is like trying to pass off Alexi Murdoch as Nick Drake or Elliot Smith. Not going to work.

    Yes it was and that just went way over my head. No idea what that meant. I am a few beers in so I apologize. All I know is ginger bread stout was some good shit. 1836 while not great is pretty solid. Also they are 3 blocks from me so ya don't mess with my hood bro!

    Ha, my post was not very intelligent anyway. If you like Buffalo Bayou, don't let anybody tell you otherwise. I am just ranting a bit.

    Haha well that makes me feel better. Im just ranting too but I do think they have some high points and am pumped to see what they could do with a barrel aged sour...

    Uhhhhhh. F*ck no. Looks like it's a sour Smoke On the Bayou.

    But don't quote me on that. Slight conjecture.

    Scots Gone Wild from Real Ale is awesome...might be some hope.
     
  16. Clonies720

    Clonies720 Oct 24, 2012 Texas

    Agreed to the first part. Disagree to the 2nd part because Real Ale's brewer actually knows what he's doing...

    the ginger citrus ipa was excellent! Also a fan of 1836 which is is a good solid beer - just what a new( er) brewery needs to start out with.

    I also enjoyed ginger citrus IPA, gingerbread stout, and 1836 (an oddity with the American/British flavors blend, but refreshing to me). I'm hoping they create a year round lineup and start canning or bottling...

    Do we know if they are going to be doing the Gingerbread Stout again? Honestly loved that one... If they aren't I may have to find a way to get that extra off of you Clonies...

    Ya Ive never even heard of that. Guessing there weren't any bottles? Gingerbread was the only one they have bottled so far correct?

    And smoke on the bayou (for which I gladly passed. Not a fan of that beer at all)

    Wow completely missed the Pistachio Cream, and I believe I've managed to hit up most of the BBs. Where was it released?

    TxUltraRunner and I had it at the Rockwell Dinner they had a few months ago. Only time I've heard of it being in the wild, but I could be wrong about that.

    Why does your location say New York? Something I should know about? lol

    In all seriousness, though, I do like trying out the new and whacky beers that Buffalo puts out, even though I feel they're hit or miss.

    Word has it we were in the same building at the Founders launch at Saucer Sugarland. Would have liked to say hi, but didn't know who you were.

    I was at the bar right in the middle. I didn't really know any one there, so I kicked it by myself, but that's for another thread.

    What's the word on the BB sour? lawl

    I like 1836, the Gingerbread Stout.. and I liked Buffalo Sunset. Not a fan of Smoke on the Bayou. I liked Double Buffalo ok also.

    I had their double IPA at their place once.. thought it was solid.

    I'm a fan... not a superfan.. but I like going up there... I can understand those that don't enjoy them though. I prefer Karbach and Saint Arnold over BBBC but I like them much more than No Label.

    I am a friend of a guy to who is good friends with one of the brewers, and through drunk instagraming with the brewer, I can pretty much confirm it is Sour Smoke on the Bayou.

    Looks like I'll be staying far away from this one then. Unless they offer tastings before releasing it in bottles.
