Aloha Ohana friends! What a GREAT time!!!
Can anyone help me here: what was the documentary about Polynesian culture that ran at the beginning of the Drive-In movies on Saturday night? I didn't get to see the whole thing....I was competing in the Guess The Old Man Beer contest...I came in 2nd....I am kinda proud/kinda ashamed.
MAHALO!

Hoping that Sven has a new batch of them for Christmas this year, as mine is long gone. Or if I do have, it's in a box in storage...




THANKS SO much, Hale Tiki!!

I think you can lean toward the proud: the winner of the first fabulous prize only got one more than you and only two others got two. It's hard, I tellya, since the light american lagers are all in the same family. In some cases, pretty incestuous: Pabst has been buying up a lot of the small OMB marques and keeping them in production and I think they're doing their damnedest to make all old man beer taste like all other old man beer. Blatz, National Bohemian and Schmidt's are all produced by Pabst and damn if they don't seem to be three taps off the same keg. For the record, the beers in the challenge:

Strohs, Schaefer, Piels, Gennessee, Narragansett.

The first three are Pabst products while the last two are still independently brewed, albeit Gansett had to be brought back from the dead by a dedicated follower with some resources. No matter, they really all taste about alike, although I can say that having had them all, Piels is the one most like fornication in a canoe. Gansett, for the record, also produces excellent seasonal brews and good cream ale and bock. Just had one on tap in NYC yesterday before seeing Richard Cheese and I can note that like most beer, it's better on tap.

Having had what I'd call a successful first challenge, the crack team at OHANA is brewing up another for next year, plus I will definitely get the Mai Tai challenge going. It's always fun to taste blind then see what you really think...

A little bit of press from the event...

http://poststar.com/lifestyles/a-taste-of-tiki/article_a06f3eba-e4c9-11e2-9ae1-0019bb2963f4.html

The Glenns Falls Post Star:

"...The upstate New York village, with its mid-century modern architecture and vintage tourist attractions, is a welcome blast from the past for the tiki-philes, who have been descending on the destination for the past five years like a shimmering UFO in a 1950s science fiction film."

Which is an entertaining description of the event, more so if you saw any of the costumes from the Return of the Son of the Thing from Lake George from Thursday's party.

Captainquad:
THANKS for the "Beer Chat" corner of Tiki Central!
The beer challenge was a bit harder than I thought it would be-- especially considering I had never tasted 2 of the 5 before!
I think it was a great addition to Ohana (my taste buds may disagree) and I look forward to the challenge next year!!
Mahalo!
