And those are the milder ones!Yet they seem to Hoover down Slippery Nipples, Porn Star Martinis, Screaming Orgasms and Sloe Comfortable Screws.
Ever had these during your quest? Brewed by Trappist monks. The Trippel is amber coloured, Dubbel darker. Both fantastic, pretty pokey & very lively due to re-fermentation in the bottle, sometimes available in Waitrose, not sure about other outlets.Belgian beer is in a class of its own.
The brewery is in a Trappist abbey though. There's 5 other Belgian Trappist breweries of which I've tried Chimay, also very good.The majority of the workers in the brewery are no longer monks, but secular staff brought in from outside. There are 22 monks and 40 outside staff.
But is it women in general, or just the shrill activists of Fem.Ale and Beerwithoutbeards who have their knickers in a twist about this?My point about the beer names was not that 'saucy' ones were being Banned By The PC Brigade but the real reason, which is that they don't sell well to women. It's a commercial decision.
Well....Minnesota is only a 7 hour drive from me...and they lived there for a couple of years so we visited and drank craft beer from up that way... but Sam Adams brewery is in Boston.You've actually been there? Cooool.

On looking it up on Wiki:

I read about it in the Times yesterday. Real ale brewers have indeed reached the astounding conclusion I mentioned, that women are generally not amused by jokey beer names about titties. Hard to believe, I know.But is it women in general, or just the shrill activists of Fem.Ale and Beerwithoutbeards who have their knickers in a twist about this?
I was joking!This isn't something I've made up.
It's not my personal opinion which I have decided to foist upon others. It's not even a retelling of a tabloid story about hairy militant wimmin spoiling the boys' fun.
It's an observation by beer manufacturers about how to better market their product, reported in The Times.
Incidentally I find offensive the posting of a sign reading 'BULLSHIT' aimed at me personally. If anyone else did that it would incur a warning for bullying.

It's Chernobyl — in vodka form. ...
Made from Chernobyl aquifer water and radioactive rye, Atomik vodka is the first consumer product to come out of the Chernobyl exclusion zone in 33 years.
Thrill seekers visiting the ruins of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine may soon be able to take a piece of the site's radioactive history home with them — in their livers.
A team of scientists from the U.K. and Ukraine have just produced the first bottle of what they're calling Atomik vodka: artisanal spirits made from water and grain harvested in the reactor's once-forbidden exclusion zone.
... According to Anders Moller, a biologist who's spent several weeks a year studying the exclusion zone for the past few decades, local crops are often contaminated with radiation and can cause "serious problems" if ingested, Moller previously told Live Science.
Sure enough, the rye that the Atomik founders grew in the exclusion zone for their vodka tested positive for radiation. However, according to Atomik co-founder and University of Portsmouth professor Jim Smith, all traces of contamination disappear in the distillation process, during which the fermented liquid gets purified and water and other diluting substances are removed.
"Any chemist will tell you, when you distill something, impurities stay in the waste product," Smith told the BBC. (Radiation tests conducted by Smith's colleagues at the University of Southampton confirmed the product to be as safe as any other hard liquor.)
Just one bottle of Atomik vodka exists at the moment, but the founders hope to cap at least 500 others by year's end and sell them to thirsty Chernobyl tourists. According to Smith, 75% of the vodka's profits will go back to locals living in exclusion zone villages, which have seen scant economic development since the nuclear disaster 33 years ago.
"After 30 years, I think the most important thing in the area is actually economic development, not the radioactivity," Smith told the BBC.
Atomik vodka is the first consumer product to come from the exclusion zone since the meltdown, the BBC reported. Apparently, it tastes like rye whiskey with "fruity notes."
Must be one o' them things that don't come across quite right on the interwebs.
I really was joking.I do like the bullshit GIF. Mind if I borrow it?
That's the same link.De Verboden Vrucht, another tasty bottle of rocket fuel: https://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/83/2844/
This, however, at 11% tastes bloody awful. I had to put the bottle outside as I could still smell it from the kitchen when I went to bed: https://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/83/2844/
