A lot of P90 loveliness there...
They all sound great! I don't really have a particular favorite when it comes to beer, but I am really partial to good British styles. Give me a pint og good cask mild, and I'm in heaven. Of the beers we brew at our brewery, I tend to like whatever we just bottled the best. Today I brewed an IPA and we bottled a batch of low strength American amber ale. We're not allowed to advertise alcohol in Norway, but you can check out our website here.
And, Jesus Christ!, those SGs are sweet, man! That Special sure would have looked good in my livingroom...
Nice logo !
Nice site Gahr, very clean & modern, with a nice bio on you.
I was very lucky to find a great sales job with nice commissions in 2005. Business was GOOD, so once the checks started rolling in, I went on a guitar-buying bender. I'll never forget my first guitar, a 2006 SG Standard, cherry red. I was standing in front of a guitar shop's front window staring at that lovely machine, and said "Hey, I could buy that!", and I did. Many followed, many sold, but that '64 Junior is magical- I'll NEVER part with that one.
I'd have a hard time parting with ANY of those SGs!
My old '63 SG Special is for sale at Reverb.com right now:
Glad you found this forum...
What's the story on that Goldtop?
That's an old Bulldog Bodies kit I made several years ago. It's been through 3 color changes over it's life. The front was finished with Mohawk metallic gold nitro, the back with Stew Mac cherry red nitro, all covered with many nitro clear coats, wet sanding, etc. I built 3 of those Bulldogs, and I thought they were decent kits, but it looks like they're gone now.
On my PC monitor, that gold looks spectacular. Gibson's gold looks more greener or darker. Actually your gold reminds me of the gold on PRS and Hamer guitars.
That Mohawk gold was applied over Mohawk white primer/sealer, and it did indeed glow. By the way, foam ear plugs work great to seal the bridge bushings when painting a guitar.
Nice tip on the ear plugs...
very nice work
Hey Gahr, do you ship beer to the U.S., or do you have a distributer here? I'm particularly interested in your Belgian Sour.
I'm sorry, but we don't have an American importer yet. But we would definitely like to have one! We haven't really started producing any sour beer yet, apart from one single batch of sour Belgian brown (wort soured in the boil kettle, not during fermentation). To produce proper sour beer you need a lot of time, and separate fermentation and bottling equipment because of all the lactobacillus involved in the souring. If that stuff gets in your regular bottling line, you're basically screwed... But w definitely will start doing sour beers sometime in the future.
I've never tried that style of beer, and I haven't notice it in any of the local brew pubs. Is it possible to name some brands that are available in the USA?
Here's a couple of links to some breweries making sours:
I was just checking out the first link. At the bottom of the description of Eric's Ale is this: "Eric's Ale weighs in at 7% ABV and is best enjoyed while listening to the dulcet guitar work of Buckethead."
"Dulcet" + Buckethead= Does not compute!
Gahr, I tried making a lambic framboise once, but made vinegar instead. Total failure, but I DID use separate brewing vessels at least.
Separate names with a comma.
