The SOBs Drink Bad Beer

That’s a fairly inflammatory title for a blog post, but it’s true. I saw it happen last Wednesday.

The Society of Oshkosh Brewers, better known as the SOBs, ganged up in the friendly confines of O’Marro’s Public House to sample beers spiked with off-flavor compounds. What’s the point of doing that? To become better homebrewers.

If you can identify specific off-flavors in beer, it becomes much easier to figure out their source and where you might have gone wrong in the brewing process. Seems odd, but drinking bad beer can be as important as drinking good beer when you’re looking to up your brewing game.
