I do not enjoy carbonation. I rarely drink soda and beer for that reason. For whatever reasons, my sons have long been determined to "educate" their mother on the ways of the world. Apparently, I've been living in a cave all my life. Anyway, my eldest son has been trying to find a beer I will drink and he brought home a nitro version of Guinness. It's okay. At least it doesn't have all those gassy bubbles.
I was wondering what you all thought of nitro brews. Does anyone nitro brew at home?
I did love a Guinness when I had a drinking career. I think they had a nitro capsule inside than released when you opened it. Is that what a nitro beer is ?
I have never heard of nitro beer and wouldn't try it. I never cared for beer, too bitter. I didn't mind the bubbles, but the taste is what turned me off. That and the fact that people who drink beer stink!!! You can smell stale beer on their body and on their breath. It's not a friendly smell at all.
Give me a glass of wine and I'm happy.
I'm waiting for Al to chime in and tell us that nitro and beer don't mix.....
and he'll be correct!
For me "nitro" conjures up images of "super juice." *

Sherry, maybe it's some of the different brewing processes that you don't like.
Every time that I go to our local pub for supper, I have one pint of dark ale.
The ale process tastes good to me, all the others, not so much.
The term "nitro" conjures up a variety of images here. I wonder what definition they are using?
1. Nitro butter = regular cow butter but foamed with nitrogen gas. Looks absolutely normal.
But, it spreads easily, straight out of the fridge. No fizz, same butter taste.
2. Nitro Boost = NOX or nitrous oxide gas boost for snowmobile engines. Gives you that big kick when you need to outrun an avalanche. 90 mph usually good enough.
3. Nitro bomb beer = the little gas ball in the can. Here, mostly carbon dioxide as I recall.
