You are welcome to attend. I have thought about joining you. Just the logistics and the fact I'm at work at 7AM make it difficult.

Gas prices plus the fact that I am not much of a morning person make the Northside Breakfast Club kind of a non-starter for me. I've thought about showing up, but....

Yes, all are welcome.

Doood...Light Rail goes to Park Meadows :thumb:

Only thing I'm not sure of is whether or not they fixed the fact that you couldn't actually get TO Park Meadows from that stop :confused:...Seems that when they put the station in, Park Meadows was worried that their parking lot would get filled up by people taking Light Rail to wherever. I'm not sure it dawned on them that people might also want to take Light Rail to get TO Park Meadows :rolleyes:

DaveInDenver
01-19-2008, 07:08 AM
from any Light Rail location
The County Line train station might work. It's not all that close to the brewery, but sure a heck of a lot closer than walking from downtown.

IIRC that is the one I am thinking of but the problem is the station parking lot is on the East side of I25 with no easy way to get across I25 :( - I might be remembering all wrong but I did find mention made of the issue of accessing Park Meadows from the Light Rail station at the bottom of this page (http://www.southeastlightrail.com/stations-park_n_ride.cfm)

Perry, you could get off at the Lincoln station and I could probably pick you up there :thumb: - Let me know

Thanks for the offer. I'll look into this. I take the light rail to the Broadway Station everyday, then back home to Lodo.. Bout as far as I know for the system, other than the many times i've missed the train at the Downtown Littleton Station.

Jeff, I'll let you know as the time gets closer, again thanks for the offer:thumb::beer:

I will be there. We get to drink beer, right? Do we have to be ready for any topics that require prior thinking and preparation? I wouldn't like to look unprepared you know.

The anticipated topic will be to examine the fundamental change in the relationship between the citizens and the U.S. Government that occurred in the 1920s and 1930s and the reasons behind this shift in policy and outlook. Discussed might be protest actions undertaken by relevant unions of this era and sweeping New Deal reformation implemented by Franklin D. Roosevelt during his early Presidential terms, and how these two factors worked together to bring about a major political shift that bridged the wide eyed, but distrustful, post-Antebellum period and the modern twentieth century United States. In particular, I might suggest that we limit the discussion to how these changes affected the political view of the West, developing from it's adolescence as a land of dreamers and hopeless romantics to one of natural resource development and economic boiler plate for tourism. Only anecdotal references will be necessary as this is will be an informal round table on the subject, meant just for lighthearted amusement of the Supper Club Posse. Or we could talk about the Rubithon and Cruise Moab. Up to the beer drinking bros, word to the Southside Crew homies.

Ummm back on track

Because of the size of our party I had to make a reservation with the Banquet Manager.

I made a reservation under the name "Rising Sun" for 20 people. They stated that this will have to be on one check and that a 20% gratuity will be added to the bill.

I think we were up to between 16-18 people (Someone check my math) and figured 20 would cover it.

01-30-2008, 02:00 PM

Ken,

As of right now I count 21 assuming all that expressed interest/posted up show. 20 seem to be solid yes' with one as a possible.

Maybe bump the reservation up to 25? Make it for 20 and 30 will show up. Make it for 25 and 10 will show - Murphy's Law you know :hill:

But the ENT came by because of it (really nice Indian American chap, very competent, and I appreciate that he explained everything to me) and this is actually not a bad thing. So it saves removing it today. And the bleeding seems to have stopped.

Just as an FYI. Kirin has a mutual distribution deal with Anheuser-Busch. That doesn't matter per say, but the Kirin we get here is brewed at the AB brewery in Van Nuys, CA and not in Japan. Last time I looked, I seem to remember the Asahi, Kiuchi and Sapporo beers were still imported from Japan. Although a good memory and beer are often mutually exclusive in precise operation for me. Supposedly our Kirin is very close to the JDM version of the beer, but it's been at least a decade since we got the real deal and I can't say I've ever had a true Japanese Kirin.

I have it now on a first hand knowledge that the American distributed Asahi Super Dry is brewed in Toronto, Ontario, Canada at the Molson Brewery. But rest assured, the bottle said it was brewed under the strict supervision of Asahi brewers. Sigh. Your man on the street will get to Sapporo ASAP to verify it's originating location.

Speaking of which, I was at the beer store yesterday (Libations at Parker and Arapahoe) and noticed they had a couple of bottles of beer from Aizu Wakamatsu. That's a brewery in Fukushima, about 150 km northeast of Tokyo. So in the interest of bringing this thread jack full circle, Fukushima has a Denso plant that makes A/C parts for Toyota... I had to look that up (I wondered where Fukushima was and just kept following Google links). But the Aizu Wakamatsu beer is the real deal at Libations. IIRC it was their Heukmi, which would be their kurogome beer (a black rice beer, no barley AFAIK). Not heard good things and so I passed on it until I could verify what it was (the label was mostly in Japanese). Speaking of Japanese beer labels, why do they often look like Hello Kitty characters?

BTW, the Aizu website:
http://www.aizubeer.jp/

Anyway, I was restocking a critically low European beer supply, so my quest was primarily German and English beers. Although I did find Baltika, which is a Russian brewery and had to pick up a couple of those (their #4 Original and #6 Porter). So it's European in the broadest sense. The kicker is that guess what beer Baltika brews in St. Petersburg and distributes throughout Russia? Asahi Super Dry. So this post is not just completely random thoughts, that was sort of a completion of a thought, right?

In America, beer is made with rice when they don't want to spend the money on more expensive grains. For example, Busch beer is a rice beer, but Bud is made with a normal mix of grains. Hence the price difference. Neither is something that I drink on a regular basis anymore, but I supported them heartily in college.

Hence the price difference. Neither is something that I drink on a regular basis anymore, but I supported them heartily in college.
All beer has malt in it and there are very few true rice beers in the USA. Budweiser uses rice as an additive and Busch uses corn. Corn's use in Busch is primarily to make it cheaper and it has minimal effect on the character of the beer. These and similar beers are still based primarily, usually at least 75%, on barley malt but use other grains as a filler (the non-malt fermentable contents are called adjuncts in brewing) so that the relatively more expensive barley content can go down but you still get a sufficient source of starch. It's the starch that is the fermentable sugar the yeast consume.

Using rice, corn or other sources as a filler is generally just a way to make beer cheaper at the commercial level, but they can have specific uses. Oatmeal, millet, potatoes and rye for example are actually quite legitimate adjuncts, like used in an oatmeal stout, for example. Wheat and rice are also very often used in beers for reasons other than just because they are cheaper. Having a high wheat content beer, a Weißbier or wheat beer, gives you a distinct beer. A Weißbier is about 30% to 50% wheat in the grist bill and really aren't any cheaper to make than an all barley beer.

Rice is an odd one because it's usually cheaper than malt and that's often why the big brewers use it. But it also has the ability to lighten up a beer's body and that's partially why it's used in Bud. AB formulated Budweiser to be as non-offensive to as many people as possible and still be economical to make.

Japanese beers often use rice for the same reason, it's availability, and that's why their beers tend to be what's called dry. They have a very crisp bite and taste. Some speciality styles use lots of rice and are closer in truth to sake than beer. If the malt content grows small enough (some are below 25% malt) the Japanese actually have a proper name for it, happoshu. So I dunno if that Heukmi is a total rice nihonshu or if it has malt in it. Not being able to read Japanese, I couldn't figure it out from the label and the Aizu Wakamatsu website wasn't much help, either. I'd heard it was a 100% rice beer (i.e., almost like a low alcohol, carbonated sake), but the more I think about it I'd guess it's just a very low malt content beer. In any case, I've heard it was a pretty brutal beer and so I didn't want to risk $6 on a bomber before looking it up.

BTW, here's the AB fact sheets on their beers:

There's Table Steaks on Floyd St. (north of King Soopers), a block west of Broadway. They have a pretty decent menu IIRC. This is around the corner from the Gothic. Pretty sure the Englenook has a pool table, but nothing like Table Steaks. I've been uber busy the past couple of weeks, so I wasn't planning on doing anything other than working on the truck tonight. I had to go back to St. Louis this weekend and might again in the next couple of weeks, so I need to use my non-work time to finish the pile of stuff I need to do before Rubithon (our trip is somewhat up in the air at the moment, but currently still planning on it).

'Steaks' as in hamburgers. It's not fancy, it is downtown Englewood after all... I'd call it a huge slightly higher class pool hall with reasonably good food.

In. See you at 8:00.

Karie wants to know if any other women are coming. She doesn't want to be the only female.

I'm still up for a beer. You could just come over to my place if you want. I have several high hoppy beers from which to choose.
