Take a sip. Now you know what "brown" tastes like.
my favorite line was : Our Banana and Coriander Tripel has notes of Banana and Coriander, but in a completely different and much better way from every other Belgian ale.
This was pure genius.
Unlike that Ranch video, this is actually funny.
Wow. That was awesome. I was in tears. Lol
My wife was wondering why I was laughing like a hysterical idiot. Priceless!
That was actually pretty funny. I like when it stuff that is supposed to be funny is, you know, funny.
I don't know where they are getting this from. We're not like that.
It's neat how an article that pokes fun at beer geeks can actually be funny when the person who wrote actually knows something about beer.
Usually articles like that are just poorly-veiled insults at those the author sees as "beer snobs," and every joke is just a tired cliche about hops or imperial stouts.
Handful of Hops in a Bottle... I'm crying.
LOL - "fk your face with hops"
I remember my first IPA lol
My boss showed this to me at work, it is too funny, I laughed my arse off, and I was having a BAD day at work beforehand.
Its pretty funny.
"Maverick Oh No We've Gone Too Far What Have We Done Continuously Hopped Disaster"
Seriously, the hop wars are over and my taste buds lost.
... never meant for it to end like this. Blood. Blood and hops, everywhere. May God have mercy on us all.
Beer humor is usually not, well, very humorous. But this made me laugh out loud in a most embarrassing way.
I love the pic with the crab hanging out below the beer.
The names were pretty funny. Spotted frog, angry goatface. I actually like crazy high alcohol barley wine.
Says someone who suddenly realized how accurate the article really is.
Weasel Poop, no I mean Fish Head Ale, whatever. Angry Goatface is even better than Kid Rock.
SubpoenaDueces writes way funnier poop.
The barleywine description hit close to home haha. Good stuff.
I thought about ordering the Obligatory Red Ale, but there just wasn't anything unusual about it.
O'so puts a hop cone in lupulin maximus
They forgot a few:
OAKY OAKHEAD'S SUPER TRIPLE OAKED BRANDY BOURBON SHERRY BARREL AGED STOUT
We take a mediocre Russian Imperial and then barrel age it in sherry oak barrels for seven years. Then we put those oak barrels inside of a larger boubon barrel and age it for fifteen more years. Then that double barrel is put inside an even larger brandy barrel for thirty years. Then the children of our brewmaster (who died of old age) put everything into a woodchipper (like the one in Fargo) and bottled the stuff that flies out. The result is a splintery wood pulp with an abv of 13%. Enjoy the woody goodness! Because that's all you taste! (But don't worry--we didn't bottle it all. Some of it is aging for eighty years in rain barrels.)
BIGSHOT LITTLE BREWERY 1 DAY ONLY LIMITED EDITION ALE
Released only one day a year, we sell tickets that might allow you the opportunity to possibly buy more tickets that could allow you the chance to stand in a line that might get you a single special release bottle. Maybe. The bottle run this year is limited to only 4, and two of them are already on eBay selling for $15k each. But think of the fun you'll have, getting in line at 3:12am, trading less exclusive beers with other insane beer-obsessed advocates who somehow got out of work on a Tuesday. (Correction, we only released 3 bottles. Hope we didn't waste your time. Or your beer mule's time.)
WE SELL TO NO ONE! TRAPPIST TRIPEL
The monks brew it, and drink it all themselves. No kegging. No bottling. The only way to get this beer--voted the best in the world--is to give up your worldly possessions and join the monastery, located in a muddy field in Antwerp. But trust us--the beer is worth it.
If this is what passes for comedy now, count me out. It's easy to take all the ridiculous exaggerated aspects of something, add curse words and make something that bros will laugh at. But I shouldn't have expected much effort from CollegeHumor I guess.
this guy's got a good point. I mean...this is the kind of writer that would characterize beer snobs as humorless and judgmental.
I loved the Maverick "Hoppier than Hopfuck" Imperial IPA description. Laughed till I cried...
I expect some homebrewer to have a Continuously Hopped Disaster out by Christmas
That's true. Good thing it's satire and fiction.
It just goes overboard on some of the wackiness that is craft beer. Doesn't offend me because I find the real craft beer community pretty damn humorous on some counts. It's just an interest...and just beer. Nothing to really get wound up about.
I took it as being written by a beer geek who had a good understanding of the dumber things that some of us are guilty of at one time or another. It was way too tuned in to be a random post by someone who hates beer snobs. Took it as tongue-in-cheek, not attack mode.
Oh now you're just being difficult.
Actually I think this is aimed more at craft brewers, who continuously try to one up each other with the latest beer trends. Of course it wouldn't succeed without consumers who feel the need to always be on the cusp of every trend, in an effort to show they are more sophisticated than everyone else.
It brilliantly lampoons how silly, to the extreme, craft brewing has become. Thankfully the pendulum seems to be slowly moving back to the more sessionable, true-to-style beers that many of us have always preferred.
Oh come on guys if we can't all laugh at ourselves now and again, what are we?
