Samuel Adams dedicated it's new lager to Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Called "When There Are Nine," the Belgian Brut IPA is a nod to a quote from the justice who reportedly said, "There will be enough women on the Supreme Court when there are nine."

At Samuel Adams, we brewed a Belgian Bruit IPA on International Women's Day and will release it in our Tap Room on March 29. We are dedicating this brew to feminist icon Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and naming it When There Are Nine, inspired by her famous response to the question "When will there be enough women on the Supreme Court?". (We wanted to name it Brut Bader Ginsburg but our legal team, uh, dissented.)

Bud Light doesn't need to change anything to dedicate a beer to trump; it already tastes like piss.

No sweetness at all, just dried out and bitter. That's what a brut ipa is. Hilarious they'd choose that flavor profile for her.

I knew it. RBG is an Agent of the Nine!

So that is what they look like under all that garb.

Bitter, and flavorful as a beer should be. Drink a cider if you want something sweet.

Time for some beer education.

A brut beer is one with amyloglucosidase added. Ale yeast usually eats 70% to 80% of available sugar. The rest stays in your beer. The alcohol-sugar balance is what makes beer good (and why most of you are fat slobs). The additional enzyme causes the beer to ferment out completely and leave no residual sugar, given you an exceedingly dry, unbalanced gimmick of a beer (works in cider too). It's truly the beer of champagnes. Unbalanced, dried out and harshly bitter. Funny style choice for RGB for sure.

You have a laughably bad pallet, sitz. Enjoy your added malt-sugar sweet beers. If you like any residual sugar in your beer, you clearly don't like beer. Have you ever had Sangria? Seems right up your alley.

I don't even know what the ---- that is.

Statistically there is a 99.9% chance I know more about beer and the flavor preferences of craft beer drinkers than Sitz which is why I find his insistence that sweet beers are better hilarious. While there is no objective measure of "better", there is certainly a thing called majority consensus and the majority of people that claim to like beer prefer a more bitter beer; that's just a part of how taste buds work. There's a reason people move toward higher IBUs as they drink beer. Perhaps Sitz is 21 and new to game, perhaps those "No Corn Syrup" Bud Light ads have gotten to him.

The reason is that sweet sweet burn. Sitz can have his Candy Land beers. Give me a double IPA so bitter that my face feels like I was married to Ike Turner. If I've finished my third glass of a beer and I don't want to start a fight I made a poor choice.

I like my beer strong and thick like my women.

When I finished flight training in the mid 80s a couple of guys and I went out in Pensacola and got into a OE 40sfest with a few of the locals...a broken left hand and a way too kind SP Master Chief (who kept me out of the brig) later, I belatedly learned the power of OE.

Best line of the next day was uttered by the Marine Medical Officer when my CO asked if the broken left hand would affect flight duty: "Naw, he jerks off and flies with his right...I hope."

I've never tried steel reserve. The shotgunning adds a whole new element though, and will surely increase the violence factor.

I'd still rather the OE because the empty 40oz bottle will come in handy when you kick off the fisticuffs...

I have had a few brut IPAs and they all sucked. As does most anything by Sam Adams.

The only time for Sam Adams is in small market airport bars where the other choices are worse.

Speaking of airports, I was in Dulles the other day and the airport still has a smoking lounge. It's a nice reminder that the birthplace of Presidents is still proudly cultivating a plant that kills 1,300 Anericans a day and 7,000,000 people a year globally.

Pliney the Elder- Russian River Brewing Company simply superb

Eye of the Hawk- Mendocino Brewing Co went out of business which was a tragedy they also made Red Hawk and Blue Heron

Cascade Amber Ale- The Tied House available only in kegs or by the glass

Blonde Boch- Gordon-Biersch also their almost sweet Amber Ale

India Pale Ale- Squatters Brewing Company perfectly balanced

Devastator- Wasatch Brewing Co smoky flavor

All use hops, none are exceptionally bitter, yet all are uniquely excellent

Talking about sugar sweet beers while drinking an IPA. Jesus help y'all. You're drinking sugar water masked by hops, usually badly made, acting like it's a fine, dry belgian beer. IPAs are the beer you make when you suck at making beer because the hops try to cover up the glaring flaws.

It's possible to like a well-executed IPA, admit that there are too many bad ones out there, and also enjoy other styles of beer. It doesn't have to be all or nothing.

You're being goofy, Sitz. The existence of a bad beer in a style doesn't mean everything in that style is bad. You're like a guy who tells everybody not to have sex because he had a soul-scarring experience with a hooker. I'm sorry she stuck a thumb up your backside by surprise. She should've asked first.

There are excellent IPAs. Stone, Ballast Point, Bear Republic and Alpine make great ones. Here in Florida, Cigar City Jai Alai is loved by everybody I introduce it to.

I love the Belgian beer styles, but I can find a good local IPA in any city faster than I can find a good local Belgian.

I don't dislike them. I will drink them if I can't find something more interesting. I've tasted IPAs that score higher than Pliny elder & younger, Jai Alai, Yellow Rose, etc. You keep talking standard American/West Coast/East Coast IPAs.

This RBG beer is not one of those.

This topic is about a brut IPA. It's a sub-style, not a brand. It's overly dried out and unbalanced by design. As a choice for a tribute beer, that's funny. Tribute? Troll? Both?
