An incredible beer!

It seemed to me that one of the positive aspects that many of the house members at quincy share is a love for fine beers and other alcoholic beverages. It also occurred that this blog may be a good place to help share the overflowing knowledge that we posses. I would like to share with you all a little about a wonderful beer that I had the privilege of trying this summer. This beer is Stone Brewery's Oaked arrogant Bastard Ale. If you have ever tried the Arrogant Bastard, you know that it is a strong beer. Its hops are very forceful, but their power brings out a very subtle complexity and oddly refreshing mix of tastes. I sometimes wonder if part of the appeal of the beer is simply its name, because such a name really plays on the pride of the connoisseur. But a taste of this beer is enough to show that there is more than just wordplay here.

The Arrogant Bastard is available at fine select liquor stores, but the Oaked Bastard is a little harder to come by. If you can find it I would highly recommend giving it a try. Oaked means that this beer is aged in oak casks, and the character of the oak gives a pleasant change to the flavor of the beer. It has both a mellowing and flavor adding effect. The intense bite of the hops looses a little of its edge, while retaining all of the robust flavor. The oak flavor also adds a subtle sweet undertone, which takes an already complex and rich beer and just brings it over the top. I would encourage all of you to take a chance and try a little of the Bastard.

More beer reviews to come ...


A few nights ago out on the quincy porch we were having a discussion on an over treated topic around here, relationships. A quincy associate and the official quincy legal counsel, Curt spoke of a mythical book which held all the answers to our problems, of which he was the keeper of but a few chapters.

Well in that vein, quincy enterprises has launched! A wiki for men, by men to address the questions and problems of a state in life that many of us find ourselves

Last night we got to some recording of a little poetry. So I thought I would share the fruits of our labor. I believe that the poem is by Ginsberg. Enjoy!
