Beer Review Sierra Nevada Pale Ale

It is that time of year that I go to the local H.E.B to get good beer.  I buy good dark beer when its cold because I don't know it just feel like that to me. Ok yes enough.    Well the first beer of the season is Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.  This beer is good, but I didn't like it when it was very cold, I had to wait a few minutes before it came to a good temperature yes my freezer is cold.  I was playing the new call of duty and my kill rate was very good.  I think that the overall rate on a scale of 1 to 10 was a 6.  It was a 6 because I personally like beer with a little kick to it and it didn't really have that.  I like a bitter after taste and it didn't come close.  It did have a nice sweet taste and it goes down good with no bad beer after taste.  I recommend this beer to anyone who likes a sweet overall taste it accomplishes that perfectly.  I will continue to enjoy my holidays by drinking more beer and reviewing them ok yeah I got the time to do it....To life,liberty and everything else ok bye for now......

Chinese Bussiness Distributes Australian Beer

Australian beer is more expensive than the local Chinese beer, but that doesn't stop the success of a distributor.  Just Beer has had success in distributing Australian beer in China due to the fact that Chinese appreciate different types of brew.  The model of distribution has served as template for Australian brews to start venturing into China to do the same. The founder Frank Li has developed a successful channel for distribution into China.  As for my take on this there is only one beer that I've tried while I was in Australia that would be great to have in the United States and that would be VB or Victoria Bitter.  Its no surprise that VB is the top seller with Li's beer service.  I think I will have to make my own VB distribution in the States now that would be a top hit.

Beer logos

Look at a commerical for beer and what do you see?  You see something that is familar?  What you are seeing is a brand that helps you connect with your favorite past time.  Yes beer is a past time because you past the time drinking it and it has been done since the beging of written history.  So you see a logo a brand with colors and graphics that have a greater meaning because you have connected with them through the beer you drink.  Just seeing these color symbols make your mouth water for it.

Viva Mexico Corona Beer has a big following

As a person who lives on the boarder Corona beer is not a big deal, but it cannot be denied that it has a big international following.  My person impression of Corona is that it is a very watered down beer and does go good with lime.  Dos Xis is actually my favorite Mexican beer that is made by the same company I think. Modelo Nerogo is a good dark beer that rivals many German beer the reason why is because it is made by an old German recipe that was brought to Mexico.  There are many good Mexican beers, but as discribed in the artilce link on the bottom read more to find out why Corona is so good.

I have seen the light, light beer that is

Today's domestic beer market is dominated by light beers.  Light beers are popular because they contain less calories and often do not lead to a tremendous Hanover.  Although we are familiar with the usual light beer companies such as Miller, Coors and Budweiser there are others to choose from.  The others maybe or less expensive than the competition, but there is certainly a wide variety.

 The information that companies gather is called beer statistics.  This information is used to determine weather a product needs to me made different or phased out.  Peoples taste change as time progresses, that being the case beer companies change as well.  Companies use different data points such as the sales of a certain kind of beer.  The data is then used to find out what taste of beer is being more successful.

After weeks of the fermentation process and adding yest to get the carbonation only one bottle came out with good carbonation the others were flat. I will one day repeat the process of making my own beers. The next time I will make sure to follow the directions properly.
