I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Great American Beer Festival

    Hey All,

    I am going to the Great American Beer Festival in Denver tomorrow.

    400+ brewers serving 1800+ beers.

    Do you have any favorites that I should go check out?

    If you have never tried Fat Tire, give it a go.

    It is one of my favorites.


    1 more 1 more! While I was in Seattle we had the Alaskan Amber, it is very nice as well.

    Do they provide a shuttle bus, or does everyone just crawl home!

      Hi Dave,
      Fat Tire counts as a local beer here, brewed up in Fort Collins CO.

      I will give that Alaskan Amber a try...

      Personally, I am taking the train (light rail) down and back...

        Being in West Texas, we consider beer from Colorado as fine imports! Especially Fat Tire.

        And since your are not driving, you might try all of them!

          Re: Great American Beer Festival

          Sounds like a good way to try a few beers.

          I was in Denver 10yrs ago and a local took me to Wynkoop....beer was good and so was the food ....I wonder what its like nowadays?
          Cheers

            Yeah Coors light or Bud light! Sorry guys, I tried all those local brews and fancy brews growing up. I knew Sam Adams when he was just 'little Sammy' ! They're all fine if you like the heavier brews or beers made with honey, raspberry, blueberry, corn, eye of newt, seaweed, hay or whatever. Personally I've gone full circle back to good ole' 'construction sodas' (mass produced American light beers)!!!! Anyways, Enjoy the beer fest! It's all a matter of taste and a fun time for all!
            Best to all,

              Hey Bacterium,
              Here in Denver we like the Wynkoop so much that the owner is now the mayor...really!!
              That place is going strong. Open fermentation and traditional ales.

              Oventhusiast, you know what they say about coors light and bud light?

              They are like making love in a canoe...
              (or fu@&ing close to water...)

                Drake,

                You and Eric Idle (Hollywood Bowl, I think) couldn't have said it better.

                    Re: Great American Beer Festival

                    Yeah I liked Wynkoop......I like the owner/mayor thing. I had a Wynkoop t-shirt I bought and wore it for years(between washes of course). Some Aussies used to have a perception that American beer was week as water (we say weak as pi$$)....however my Denver mate had me soon educated.

                    I suppose its a bit like Fosters - most here nowadays think its below average - yet internationally people sees it as something very Australian (which it kinda still is). However its not until you get to the micro brew stuff where you find some truly interesting beers.

                    Commercially for Oz beers you can't go past some of the Tasmanian stuff - brands like Cascade and James Boag.
