So I'm a homebrewer as well.  I use a no rinse cleanser, and it's not that hard to keep everything clean.

I'm looking for a more in depth description of Mac's beer so that I can make a version of it and nerd out!

Right now, all I've got is that it's dark and best served at cellar temperature.  What else?

There are a few of them, if memory serves.  One was probably a nice nut brown ale, a sweet and malty, not so bitter or hoppy brew.  Another was mentioned as having a smokey taste, probably another brown ale with the addition some smoked malt or grains.  Might have been a scottish ale or even an oatmeal stout with the smoked grains added.  Mac sounds like an all-grain brewer rather than an extract sort of fellow, but that takes a great deal more time, and I've too ignorant tastes to notice the difference...

I would recommend a cider at BJs. It's delightful.

I have discovered a new Gluten Free beer!

If you have heard of Estrella Daum, they have a new beer out called Estrella Daum Dura that is gluten free. It's delicious! They made it from barley but they flitered it down to like 1 ppm so it's safe for even Celiac's. However they don't market it on the box as Gluten Free because they think people wont buy it if they think it's GF and they want all people to drink it not just GF people. :)
MF you  should stop shoving things in peoples mouths. I'm feeling left out. :(
Oh really? Huh. Well this is awkward.

Lets take a moment to salute this Pioneer of the Future:

http://www.ibtimes.com/michal-bodzianowski-11-year-old-colorado-boy-will-brew-beer-space-photo-1416866



An 11-year-old Colorado boy may have found a way to literally make a beer that's out of this world. Michal Bodzianowski, a sixth grader at Douglas County's STEM School and Academy in Highlands Ranch, Colo., recently won a national competition where his beer-making experiment will be flown to the International Space Station. Noting that beer is safer than contaminated water, Bodzianowski note that beer could be useful “in future civilization as an emergency backup hydration and medical source."

McAnally beer and Sam Adams Brewery
« Reply #112 on: March 21, 2015, 10:53:22 PM »
Sam Adams Brewery is noted for their short run specialty beers. Have you considered arranging for Sam Adams to make "Mac" or McAnally" beer?  I live in a small town  but the local liquor owner would be willing to special order me a case of "Mac" beer! I have several friends who would buy some for the  novelty.

I'm certain that if I bring a case of "Mac" beer, my brother-in-law would fire up his smoker and we could have a nice family picnic.

where i live just north of Philly there is a winery, Stone and Key. that also makes wonderful cider. I go in and they know to pull me a pint of their 'cherry pie' which is a little sweet and very tart.
