    That freaking writer can shove his "wet hops" right up his ass.

    I bet you did a search for that term. I didn’t even see it, got about 2/3 through the article and then got distracted by something shiny.

    We all can, if we're truly committed to the full wet hop experience:wink:

    I read that article yesterday (and, it was a decent article)and forgot to post it, but that term literally jumped off my phone screen and slapped me.

    You read it here first: Fresh hop enemas are the next big thing.

    Nice article. I always understood it had to do with the similarity to marijuana. The oils are somewhat similar. We all know the popularity with the kind flower. Might be trying to keep off that slippery slope.

    They might make a confusion of the terminology down here, but hyphens...those clearly have no usage round these parts. Ivy leaguer from the East Coast? :wink:

    Hmm, if we can just find a way to incorporate THC we might have the next Pabst pilot series product on our hands (dont get it on your hands!) here...

    That would be "figuratively", not "literally".

    No, seriously, a tiny, electronic hand reached out and slapped me.

    I wanted to file an assault charge.

    If you start with us again, you owe us a box of steaks.

    Not joking.

    Much.

    I'd almost do it just so you could taste some steaks from the ranch. But we can't even get an appointment with the meat market/butcher until February 2021 to get anything processed, and that date was booked back in August.

    Keeping it beer related, our bribe of their brew of choice got us no further up the schedule.

    There was also:

    Sure, petty and picky :wink: but, c'mon, no one (over a certain age, I suppose...:grimacing:) caught that?

    As for the use of Cascade hops, it should be mentioned that, despite Coors' and the early craft brewers' usage, it was probably Blitz-Weinhard which popularized the Cascade hop in mass market media articles and ads (the latter complete with another familiar beer promotional phrase "...we know of..." :grin:) for it's super-premium Henry Weinhard's Private Reserve.

    Thanks for the memories. In high school (82'), we used to drink Henry's. We called it "old wood" because of it's taste. I guess it was the hops.

    Crap. My 40th high school reunion is in less than two years. Old man...

    Well, technically a hyphen is an "N" dash in the printing/typography world. :grin:

    That longer one, when you hit the shift key when you type a hyphen, that's an "M" dash. See how that works? You have to be familiar with the California Job Case to get the significance.

    Oh shit, I said that "C" word... sorry! :blush::laughing:

    Finally got around to reading the article and man, being a 5th generation hop rancher and breeder is probably my dream job

    Well, actually, a hyphen is a hyphen, an en dash is an en dash, and an em dash is an em dash. You can check the Chicago Manual of Style or the AP Stylebook if you don't believe me.

    - hyphen (for compound adjectives and such)
    – en dash (to express a range of values etc.)
    — em dash (to separate two related dependent or independent clauses, or for emphasis)

    Not sure why this thread turned into a grammar lesson, but I'll go toe to toe with anyone in this arena :grin:

    It's not grammar, it's punctuation -- but now it turned into a definition lesson! :grin:

    But you're right, there is a difference in a hyphen and N dash, I've just been away from my proofreader too long! :wink:

    Certainly a more discerning palate than the idiots I hung out with in high school back then. We loved Henry's so much we used to argue over which bottling number was the best. :grin:

    $10 a case back then.

    It's actually not too much more expensive these days. Grocery Outlet has 18pks for like $12 here.
