He's talking about Louvain la Neuve.
oh...yeah, they're fake!
I was very into them for a while. A lot of great variations on hops used for both brewing and dryhopping. Got to try some very interesting combinations. Then all the breweries turned to going more and more crazy and making them too complicated. Looking at a few of the recent ones I had.I think I've maybe had 10 different NEIPAs, they are about as interesting as a normal IPA to me, which is not at all, unless they're properly balanced or use interesting ingredients. It feels to me that every idiot with a brewing kettle just adds too much hops to their beers and calls it an IPA.
Brewed using pineapple sage and double dry hopped with Mosaic, Denali, and Lemon Drop.
Brewed and dry hopped with all Mosaic hops. It has an apricot and peach aroma with a bright juicy hop flavor. This beer is brewed with wheat.
I still have a few staples that I really like, and intend on bringing those to Ringmeet if I can get my hands on them in August. @Adunaphel, I'll message your the names/descriptions ahead of time so they can be included on your super nifty tasting menu. How far in advance do you need that?DDH sour double NEIPA brewed with Pilsner, oats, lactose, and double dry hopped with Citra / Cryo Mosaic and Simcoe hops.
A couple days before I leave, I just print them at home.I still have a few staples that I really like, and intend on bringing those to Ringmeet if I can get my hands on them in August. @Adunaphel, I'll message your the names/descriptions ahead of time so they can be included on your super nifty tasting menu.

The way I find good beer in a new city is with the Untapped venue search. Open up the map and then click around the verified (yellow) pins until you find one categorized as a “beer bar”. Typically those will have better selections since they care enough about beer to pay Untappd for being verified. Also I’ve had pretty good luck at verified breweries too. After a 5 minute search, I‘d look into the following if I were in London on one of my solo weekend trips based solely on their beer lists.Good G-d, Brits - your beer is terrible! Damn near impossible to find a good pint in London, it seems - at least as far as my taste buds are concerned.
