50.7% as of the 2010 census.  I recall it was over 70% a few decades ago.

Of course some of that gentrification is Hershey's chocolate transitioning to Godiva.

Has anyone been to the Chocolate City brewery near the Brookland section of DC ?

I'm very tempted to hit this thing up.  Last charity event I attended I was drunk and tripping over toddlers by the end, looks like I won't have to worry about the kiddies at this thing.

we were at gordon biersch near the VZ center last week and had a sampler of all their beers.  While I love the Maarzen, their winter brew was outstanding.

Sam Adams and Weihenstephan (the world's oldest brewery, dating back to 1050) are again teaming to produce Infinium.  The 2010 batch got pretty bad reviews (especially for $20-25 a bottle).  They bill it as a "champagne style" brew, the AC is 10%.  This year's batch is getting mediocre reviews as well.

Weihenstephan's hefeweiss is my absolute favorite beer.

I've had Weihenstephaner and wasn't at all impressed.  Then again, I don't like heiniken or other stuff like that all that much either.

I'm not a huge beer drinker myself. usually just drink Bud Light Lime or Yuengling. Brother tried this Rogue crap and something else, firefly or something? They were TERRIBLE.

Hey, I'm willing to try new things, but if it's anything down that Rogue and Firefly path, no thanks.

Welcome to the wild, wonderful world of beer. Enjoy yourself and find your favorite types of beer. :mg:

Try a Abita Purple Haze and a Brian Boru Old Irish Red.

If you want to describe beer to beer snobs. Learn ASTMO. Even if you don't give a crap, thinking it through will enhance beer drinking.

Quote
Appearance - Note the beer's color, carbonation, heaad and its retention. Is it clear or cloudy? Does it look lackluster and dull or alive and inviting?

Smell - Bring the beer to your nose. Note the beer's aromatic qualities. Malts: sweet, roasty, smoky, toasty, chocolaty, nutty, caramelly, biscuity? Hops: dank / resiny, herbal, perfumy, spicy, leafy, grassy, floral, piney, citrusy? Yeast will also create aromas. You might get fruity or flowery aromas (esters) from ales and very clean aromas from lagers, which will allow the malt and hop subtleties to pull through.

Taste - Take a deep sip of the beer. Note any flavors, or interpretations of flavors, that you might discover. The descriptions will be similar to what you smell. Is the beer built-well? Is there a balance between the ingredients? Was the beer brewed with a specific dominance of character in mind? How does it fit the style?

Mouthfeel - Take another sip and let it wander. Note how the beer feels on the palate and its body. Light, heavy, chewy, thin / watery, smooth or coarse? Was the beer flat, over-carbonated?

Overall - Your overall impression of the beer.

EDIT: Ah crap, wrong board. People are more laid back on beer at WNFF.

Try a Brooklyn Lager as a starting point.  It's got a little more hop than Yuengling.  If you like that, then try a pale ale and also try an esb.
