#6 – Where in the beer world?

Where in the beer world is this?

Could this be the stumper?

This photo was snapped during our current adventure. That narrows it down to 24 states, eight provinces and one territory. I’ll rule out Alaska and the Yukon for you.

Anway, this isn’t really a hit-the-buzzer-first-Jeopardy-type contest (Daria would kick your butt), so feel free to comment even if you don’t know where this barn resides.

Heck, I bet we’d all like to know if you can tell us what Koehler beer used to taste like.

(Here’s how this feature started, in case you forgot.)

#5 – Where in the beer world?

Where in the beer world is this?

This week’s “Where in the beer world?” includes a person . . . for those of you with facial recognition software.

A hint? We bought “scratch and dent” cheese at a store in a nearby town. These are cheeses presumably from small-batch cheesemakers of the region that didn’t end up quite right in the package, and thus cost a little less. This is one of America’s great cheese regions, but the S&D swiss did not do well in a family tasting. It seemed a like a good idea at the time, but later I thought, “Would I buy scratch and dent beer?”

I know I promised we’d be talking about prizes for sharp-eyed contributors (readers are four-for-four), so here’s the first: a $50 gift certificate at BeerBooks.com. Lots of great books there to choose from, but Carl Miller also has other cool stuff. Including a bunch of new photos.

Comments are open.

#4 – Where in the beer world?

Where in the beer world is this?Just to mix things up, this week’s photo for “where in the beer world?” was not taken during our current adventure (which began May 21).

It was snapped on a previous trip.

Want a hint? It’s not the world’s most expensive hop cone.

For those unfamiliar, here is how “where in the beer world?” works.

Please leave your answer about where the photo was taken as a comment. Also feel free to comment on the picture, maybe come up with a caption, even if you don’t know where in the beer world . . .

Where in the beer world is this?Do you think you know where in the beer world the photo above was taken?

I hope that Round Three of this not-a-contest (though there will be prizes, details) turns out to be pretty easy for some of you.

The second photo should guarantee that, so consider it your weekly hint.

Comment away. I hope to get back to you eventually, but online access is going to be continue to be hard for us to come by in the next week or so (no complaints – much to be said for national park campgrounds if you don’t covet electricity and Internet connections).

That’s why this post is a day late and why there will be no Monday musing this week.

Location revealed (Wednesday, Aug. 6). The photo is of the door on the building attached to Allagash Brewing that holds it coolship. I called attention to it last December and finally got to see it last week.

Allagash founder Rob Tod had shown somebody else the room just the day before, but an industrious spider had already spun this web less than 24 hours later. There were more spider webs inside.

Allagash has brewed four batches using the coolship, two last winter and two more this spring. They now reside in Allagash’s barrel room in various size French oak barrels and used bourbon barrels (just because). It will be a year or more, brewmaster Jason Perkins said, before it is clear what will come of the beer in progress.

There’s more to report from the Allagash barrel room. A new/used foder acquired from Bonny Doon in California. Perkins was preparing to put Allagash Tripel in it the next day, along with a special collection of brewing bugs just itching to get out of a grundy tank in the barrel room. Film at 10.

#2 – Where in the beer world?

Do you know where this picture was taken? I’ll give you a hint. It was collected during our current adventure (so since May 21) and in a province or state where you don’t usually think of stores and pubs offering much interesting beer.

This isn’t a contest, but there may eventually be prizes (as explained here).

So if you know where the photo was taken or if you have something to say about the subject please leave a comment.
