I didn't, but some friends from another board did and said it was a good time all around.
Actually, I mislead you a little, I think the filet and batter are very similar. It's the bun and condiments that are quite different.
holy shit, the short rib burger
we need a separate thread for HPB/Herm food specials
Where is it? Herm or HPB?
I could do without the arugula though. hahaha
But, damn, that sounds amazing.
I really wish Chinatown would keep their specials going all week. Only having them up for a day is a g’dang tease.
Dang, got hyped to drink the BA version of their barleywine before seeing it'll still be a few months.
Would also like HPB to bring back some version of Hammered Satin!
agree. also, think they should do a beer called Hammered Satan
Let's take it a step further and call it "Ham-mered Satan," and have the base be the ham porter.
Ew. Never mind.
They have made a ham porter before, but I wasn't the biggest fan.
Yep, looks like I had it on tap December 2014. It was one of the lo
Description: "An American porter that is made with a whole ham in the boil. Surprisingly, this beer is incredibly drinkable with delicate smokiness, big roast, and just a hint of brininess in the finish."
Surprisingly drinkable, haha.
That totally doesn't quell my doubts about a ham beer when ordering.
one of the lower ratings I've given a HPB beer*
Ham porter was the first HPB beer I ever had, at Hermosillo. To be honest, my initial response was indignation, and I wrote HPB off as a nonsense brewery trying to be quirky.
Oh, how times have changed.
I need a ham beer aged in rum barrels. Gimme that Rum Ham, HPB.
I think I vaguely remember that now. though I never tired it
yeah, when I first heard about Herm getting a brewing thing going in the back, I didn't have high expectations. amazing how HPB has become one of the best, if not the best, LA breweries
on the flip side there have been so many other breweries open near me that I got excited about only to be let down (Golden Road taking the cake for biggest let down)
I believe it was one of Bob's annual holiday homebrews before HPB was just a glimmer in his eye. And I thought HPB did it at least two years in a row early on?
I don't know how to go that far back on Untappd to see what else I was drinking that night. Was the pumpkin beer on at the same time? Or was that the next year's holiday brew. All I can see on my Untappd history is that I gave Ham Porter 2 stars [insert muscle emoji].
And yes, @Black_Rider it *is* incredible to see how far they have come. Ham porter aside, HPB has grown and evolved exactly as one would hope.
The other beers I checked in around the same time were Lazy Susan, Wake Up At Michael's, Griffith J. Griffith, Tiny-Shape, New Wave, and Special Moves. And apparently Spazz, Vacation w/ Brett, and Not Normal were a few months before.
I was pretty inconsistent with checking in new beers and checking in beers I'd already tried before though. Now I pretty much only check in stuff I'm trying for the first time.
This was probably not helpful at answering your question.
But it shows that HPB was banging from the start excluding the Ham Porter. Base Spazz is one of my favorite beers ever, the Wake Up variants were bad ass, and we all know how good Lazy Susan and GJG are.
I seem to recall Ham Porter sticking around well into 2015, but I don't think it came back after that.
In addition to the other early beers mentioned, I really liked Nebraska.
and just because...
To follow the nostalgia route, a select list of some of my favorite HPB brews, some new, some old, all tasty as hell:
Hello, LA (first IPA I tried, still probably my favorite)
Woodshop 10th Anniversary
Griffith J Griffith w/ Coconut and Chilis
Nebraska w/ Brett
Please Forgive Me
BA Hammered Satin
Wake Up Michael's On Fire
7 to 5
Haha, shit, I don't remember half those.
According to Untappd, my personal top 10 of the (apparently) 129 (?) HPB beers I've tried:
BA Hammered Satin
Woodshop 10th Anniversary
GJG w/ Coconut & Chili
Big No No
I'm apparently at 192. I wonder what my 200th HPB is gonna be.
I've got 177 checked in but the sort function isn't working well at the moment since it's only showing a handful of beers at 4.5 or better. And I've rated many more HPB beers that high including GJG which isn't showing up.
Enough with the freekin runny egg on hamburgers, want to kill the taste of a perfectly grilled high quality piece of meet?, yea, drench it in egg, this culinary disasterous fad should have died back in 2001.
Mine actually says I'm at 199, but I guess 129 are unique and/or batch variants. Shame on me.
Egg ain't no fad. It's been at Fatburger forever. And egg affects the meat less than every single other thing people put on Burgers.
That’s true. Egg is pretty neutral compared to some other favorites like bacon and onions. I’ve seen some burger abominations that feature all manner of outrageous toppings that take away from the patty. I’ll take a fried egg over pineapples any day.
How about pickled beets? Dug them in New Zealand years ago.
I like pickled beets. I've never had them on a burger but I think they can be a substitute for dill pickles, especially if they're julienned.
No Pleasant Pils, no care.
Off the top of my head... I'd probably also have to have these in the Top 10 mix:
Occupied Space B1
Agree. The first time I tried this was at Slater’s 50/50. Why? Curious. Hated it. I’ll stick with a good burger. With a pint of ipa.
Just kick the damn chicken off your burger. And if it gets near your IPA, pull out a gun.
Then why put it on your burger ?
