Elsewhere on the Internets

The New York Times has an amusing article about Dogfish Head, the much-hyped Delaware brewery, trying to make a traditional Peruvian beer called chicha. Chicha involves using corn that has been chewed by the brewers. Yes, you would be drinking brewer spit.

Such is the pull and repulsion of Dogfish Head. They brew a lot of interesting, boundary-pushing beers, but not all of it makes sense, works out or tastes good.

Elsewhere, Fermentedly Challenged reviews Ska's Modus Hoperandi IPA. He liked it, with the caveat that it must be paired with food. I love Ska, but for my taste, Modus is simply too bitter.

  1. I love the beers that Dogfish Head makes but the Chicha makes me hesitate. I don't care how clean Sam Calagione looks, I don't want to drink his spit (boiled or not). Same goes for Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch with that cat poop coffee. Pass.
