[quote]I'd be in to get a good fresh brewed Oktoberfest (Marzen) style beer.[/quote] It's one of my life's ambitions to find a good American Märzen. One year at GABF I tried all of the Oktoberfest beers I could find, including the medal winners. Most were OK but nothing to go nuts over. Sam Adams w...

[quote]I would assume this is an extended process and time is in place for them to procure the hops and such. I would just pay market price if I did it on short notice. [/quote] As I understand it, pretty much all of last year's crop is already allocated. Breweries usually work on 1-3 year contract...

re: Cost to brew a batch of beer (contract brew) - MountainTiger
One thing I'm not sure about when it comes to contract brewing is who buys the ingredients. Do you have to buy them and then supply them to the brewery or does the brewery use their own ingredients? I assume the latter but if I'm a small craft brewery, I'm not excited about using up part of my hops ...

[quote]ETA: 300 barrel minimum, nvm[/quote] Yeah they got those ginormous fermenters. They wouldn't be interested in tying up one of those for a week or two for 15 barrels of beer. And it's probably not good for the beer either....

re: Cost to brew a batch of beer (contract brew) - MountainTiger
The brewery's cost will likely be in the neighborhood of $50/bbl. An IPA will be more of course, other styles might be less. Then you would add whatever margin the brewery puts on top of that. And that doesn't include packaging. That's just the cost to brew the beer. As far as distribution, I'm n...

re: Hwy 287 from Dallas & I-40 from Amarillo to Santa Rosa, NM - best drivers in country - MountainTiger
[quote] I think I confused it with another hwy that shares it for a good distance, hwy 80, or 83. [/quote] Also I think US-80 runs parallel to I-20 for quite a ways and crosses it in several places. So from S'port almost to Dallas you probably saw exit signs for US-80. Incidentally, another opt...

[quote]it was 287[/quote] I was wondering. I do that drive every once in a while between here and Dallas. The only difference is that at Amarillo I head towards Raton, NM. I didn't remember any Hwy 80 and was wondering if I had missed the best route to go. Anyway, that road is my idea of hell. I...

re: Are Bottas and Hamilton equals? - MountainTiger
Just FYI, he's VER now that Vergne left Ferrari. Yes, he's overhyped no question but he's also the best of the new breed of drivers coming into F1. That said, I've been pretty impressed with Ocon this year too. If Max gets disgruntled with RBR, and if he has a performance out in his contract, I w...
