I agree with all comments, particularly Daryl's admonition not to support bad beer -- I would extend that to drastically overpriced beer as well. I also concur that Goose Island is the best micro I've tasted (so far) in Chicago, that is since Sieben's has taken a dive -- they really used to make decent beer. I would NOT recommend the Tap and Growler, however. I went there about a year and a half ago, within many months of their opening. They had only two of five advertised beers. As I remember they were both light, lacking in character, and way overpriced. The attention to the decor (lots of brass fittings) didn't extend to the beer. I hear through my brother in Chicago that the new suburban brewer (I also forget the name) is making good beer. I have tickets for the September 19th Cubs vs. Mets game, and hope to be celebrating a victory afterwards at a small northside German beer hall which carries this new brew [the benefits of day baseball include being able to go out for dinner afterwards and still get home at reasonable hour]. I will consider it a duty to report my findings soon afterwards. Jackie Brown bitnet: brown at msukbs Return to table of contents
Date: Mon, 21 Aug 89 10:34:33 mdt From: dinl!holroyd (kevin w. holroyd) Subject: Cherries in the Scum (er..Snow) I have recently tried C.P's recipe for Cherries in the Snow. In addition to noticing the white scum referred to by others, I had one of the cherries block the hole in the top of the primary fermenter (a 5 gal. food grade bucket) with a resulting explosion blowing the lid off the fermenter. Renamed the brew Cherries on the wall. The lid fell face up (Murphy must have been asleep) and we placed it back on. When I transferred this brew to the secondary fermenter and placed the fermentation lock on the top, the lock ran backwards (sucking air, instead of bubbling air). Has anyone had a similar experience? I boiled some more water with 2 cups of corn sugar, let cool, and added this to the fermenter. Within 10 minutes the process was running normally. You know what they say, "Don't worry..." -- ******************************************************************************* Kevin W.

Date: Tue, 22 Aug 89 09:28:15 PST From: hplabs!csun!fedeva!bill Subject: Anyone familiar with this magazine? An acquaintance mentioned that he had seen a magazine devoted to brewpubs and microbreweries with the title something roughly like _Microbrewing_. If anyone is familiar with this magazine, and has contact information, I, and I am certain that others, would appreciate your sharing it with us.

I'm working on recovering those I kept copies of, and David H. is providing some. It will probably be several days, however, before the archives here are restored totally. aem Return to table of contents
