      Or maybe the Keurig machine for beers?   Oh, that's just crazy talk!

    There's potential there for mixed drinks I think. I'm pretty sure I once saw an R2D2 robotic bartender that did just that in fact.

    When the Blitz brewery was up and running here in pdx those many years ago, they offerred lots of tours that ended in an orgy of free brew and pretzels.

    Pretty darn good, but before that was the tour of production as well as a little movie about the brewery and the famous commericals associated with the brand.

    Maybe it was the prospect of free beer and the propaganda that got me so excited but I remember being very wound up in the idea that beer making was one of the most honorable pursuits possible.

    It still must be considered a very fruitful hobby.

    My bro brews all the time.

     That makes me think of something like today's fancy soda machines.

    I drink only 3000 year old Egyptian mead. It's called "Winking Sphynx" and it comes in 3 cubit clay jars. It's free if go to the pyramid at the right time.

    I win, Norway is the most expensive country in the world.

    4.5 dollars for a 0.5 Liter Carlsberg ;)

    While Ukraine was the cheapest I ever had a beer, about 0.6 Dollars (Cents?) for 0.5 liters

    Sheesh.

    I wonder how much Winking Sphynx would cost in Norway.

    I am sure the vikings wouldn't mind to trade one of their goat for a six-pack.

    Now this is my kind of thread. Any homebrewers out there?

    Why else would I study chemical engineering?

    Hmm, seems to me biology would have been be more apt, but then on the other hand you are the former ruler of Belgium.

    Was thinking the same thing. I could see microbiology being helpful, but I also dont know anything about chemical engineering. Perhaps on the water adjustment side of things it would work well.

    I felt I should come back and correct my misperception now that I've had a chance to educate myself a little more on the brewing process.

    Chemistry factors heavily in the lautering process where the sugars are extracted from the malts to obtain the wort.

    Wow this is nice. I didn't read all posts so sorry if this is a retread.

    I'm punishing Sierra Nevada's "Torpedo" IPA. It's a little higher in the fun stuff than regular beer. Costs 3.49 per 24oz bottle. A little pricey but one or two are a nice cap to a day.

    Torpedo is a double IPA, right?

    Well I had the pleasure of having a glass of Stella Artois today ( brewed in Belgium since 1366 ). A very nice and smooth brew, hmm, I wonder if Ivandh is aware of this Beer ? ( lol ).

    Lest anyone think that I approve of all brews I must say avoid Krombacher Pils, quite an awful drink.

    Have the wine drinkers taken over ? ( lol )

    Well I did want to mention Stiegl Beer which is brewed in Salzburg, Austria. I do believe that this might be the first Austrian Beer that I've had. It is a nice mid-range Beer, not too strong in taste and yet quite smooth, not bad.
