Not sure this is the right forum for this subject, if not MODs please move


This should be of interest to any Marine.



A Marine beer-brewer in Virginia dove into his history books to research and create “1775,” a new ale that replicates the brew the first Marines drank at Tun Tavern. And he’s releasing it in time for the Marine Corps birthday bash in November...

The project was inspired by the company Dogfish Head, which used authentic ingredients and techniques thousands of years old to create its popular line of Ancient Ales.

While I am not a beer drinker, as I prefer Whiskey, as a Marine who served between 1980 and 1988, I am willing to give this one a try.

Think its great he did the research along with going to donate the proceeds to worthwhile causes.

While im sure thats great for nostalgia nerds.

Beer along with foods is some of the things we have been IMPROVING for thousands of years (everything else we seem to be #ing up pretty fast though).

Sorry but i'll stick to my nice fresh, up-to-date recipy, cold beer thanks

As long as its home brewed. I don't trust the beers they put on the shelves. I mean, I'll drink it, but I don't trust it. They'll rip you off any way they can.

I hope by fresh crispy and cold you aren't referring to that crap called Budweiser, Coors or any bottom of the barrel Molson product.

Im a san miguel guy tbh.

I like ciders and ales, but a fresh larger "cold one" still is my evening brew.

That's why I stick to craft, home or German-brewed beers only.
I'm with ya on the distrust

German or Belgium beer - best beer.

English flat cloudy ciders are great too but i realize thats not what we are focusing on. But worth a mention.

Ive never tried brewing my own, ales are easier i hear but a crisp lager is still the most satisfying imo and hard as hell to brew.
