Re: A Paleontologist's beer!



If they were sentient beings and knew the bolide was coming, they would have drunk themselves silly.

Hi All

Back on topic: would dinosaurs have survived the K/T Impact if they'd invented beer?

I think the evidence is clear ;-)

You want a real American beer, try Sam Adams or Fat Tire.

Or most of the microbrews - Around here in California, theres a brewery in Mendocino county - their most common brew is "Red Tail Ale" with a red tail hawk emblazoned on it. They also make a stronger brew "Eye of the Hawk" (with a hawk head in profile on the label), which is 8% alcohol.-
For a macro-micro brew- Gordon Beirsch is pretty good - their seasonal winter bock is 7.5%


Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is pretty good too, and has more hops than most larger scale beers

Farther south in California is Stone Brewing Company, their "Arogant Bastard" brew is pretty strong, not sure how strong.

Then there's "the Hopsicle" (it has a lot of hops), and Downtown Brown ("Barley wine", 11% alcohol)

Don't knock American Beer, knock the Americans that like drinking the pi$$ water called MGD/Coors/Budweiser (or even worse, Pabst), resulting in the bad american beer being produced in much higher quantities than the good.


To bring this back on topic (sort of), a real
paleontologist's beer
would be Quilmes -- it's the only one with a dinosaur
named after it!

Red Tale Ale/Eye of the Hawk, and every other beer Mendocino Brewing has are technically named after avain Therepod Dinosaurs of the Accipitriformes branch.
