Beer Wars - The Movie... and other stuff

I just watched it.  It was great.  Everyone should watch this movie.  ...especially beer nerds.

The irony - I was drinking a Miller Lite while I watched.  I feel so guilty.  Sorry Sam Calagione at Dogfish Head.  I've done you wrong.

However, I'm happy to report that I tasted my first Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA at poker the other night and it was delicious.  I've been to the brewpub a couple of times in my past travels to Delaware (shout out to David, Richard, Jenn, John, Brad, Peter, Cassie, Mr. & Mrs. Hartogs, and the guy who owns Zogg's) but I think I would have a new appreciation for it now, not just because of the movie, but because of this whole BBA experience.

Dogfish Head seems like they have a real passion for brewing and the movie does make Sam Calagione seem like he would be a fun guy to hang out with - unless you're an Anheuser Busch rep.

In other news...  This week I've been having one Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA every night after dinner.  The flavor is really growing on me.  I think it's a really well balanced beer.  Good hop bitterness up front and plenty of malt richness on the backend.  I have one bottle left for tomorrow and I'm getting a little misty-eyed just thinking about moving on.  I'm looking forward to doing one of Sierra Nevada's brews on our show in the near future.

BBA watchers - Let me know what Dogfish Head or Sierra Nevada beer you would like to see on the show.  I already have some in mind, but I could be persuaded to change course.
