Thread only for those planning to attend the Hoh Down in 4.5 months

I'm new to the forum and not familiar with the Hoh Down, but if includes beer, food and fishing..... not necessarily in that order - I'm in and will be happy to contribute. An amber or lager would be good.

The Imperial stout rocked. A scotch ale would be fine. You know the stuff I've liked that you brew. Flashlight fail test = good beer. If a flashlight can't shine through it is good beer to drink.

I dont think anyone knows what the Hohdown stands for. Scholars maintain the translation was lost thousands of years ago.

Sean, 45 minutes after arrival you were puking and passed out. Wow! An hour after that you were seemingly recovered and pounding it again...up early and on the water touching one of the few fish of the week. Nice work, good to be young.

Now would be a good time for those that are not sure what the Hoh Down is all about to type Hoh Down in the search box!

moral of the story is you just don't give the drunk guy everclear cleverly disguised as kahlua. i believe i cracked my first beer on the ferry over. had my 5th and 6th at Brazda's house. and after arrival at the oxbow i was on slippery slope, beer, whiskey and... stuff. I blame Davey! everynight was a rough night. i seem to have fuzzy recollection of me, ryan and Jerry sittin in our waders around the fire at 4am!

A Belgain Tripple would rock!
I love me a good belgian! But I'm not entirely sure that a belgian would be the way to go for having around the campfire while noshing on bacon wrapped, cream cheese stuffed jalapeno poppers. A belgian dark strong would be more appropriate than a tripel. But as far as the strong beers, I think the stout will be the ticket.

Alright everyone... stay with me on this one...

I think it'd be fun as hell to do up a real, craft malt liquor. Not to be confused with its bastard sibling that comes in 40oz bottles with screw caps.

You lost me at the malt liquor. I can hear Fred Sanford shouting at Lamont to bring him some ripple...clutching his heart and looking to the heavens telling Elizabeth he was coming.

God, I don't know how I do it. Yeah, we were drinking and smoking (well I was smoking cigars) around that camp fire until about 2 hours before I had to get up to start breakfast. No wonder when I finally got home I slept for a day. This kid is getting to old for this shit. LOL. Was a great time though.

Yeah, pounding Kahlua mixed with everclear wasn't a great combo. But hey, you truly did the "puke and rally" with it. :)

I've brewed beers with coffee, but I think I get the same effect, only better out of using a few different heavily roasted malts. As for fruit beers... Really?
