I still prefer IPAs and APAs, but I do think the “just add more hops” folks have lost sight of something important. A good brew needs a flavor profile that includes more than hops. Double and triple IPAs / extremely hopped brews can be a sign of poor brewing skills.

Don’t really know how to brew? Just cover your mistakes with hops.

A well-crafted beer, of any style, is a marvel to enjoy.

I am a huge lager fan, particularly pilsners. No, not Busch Light, but a good continental pilsner with nice sweet malt flavor and spicy German - Czech hops.

My local tavern has on their rotator tap two excellent lagers from the Wildwood brewery in Stevensville right now. A mai-bock and a German helles. Both are excellent. I have a Classic American Pilsner finshing up fermentationright now at home.

Gunnar,

Next time you're in Denver, stop by Prost Brewing. Excellent lagers. I always stop by on my way to Coors Field. It's good to have a buzz going watching the Rockies give up 6 runs by the 3rd inning.

The pilsner is very good.
