If not, then welcome to the only beer blog site solely dedicated to smoked beer, SmokeBeerMinistry.

Uinta Brewing Co. Crooked Line Tinder Rauchbier Smoked Lager = too long of a name. No silt down in the bottom of this bottle. Clean and clear beer. I wish everyone would remedy the floaties problem. Viven Smoked Porter floaties really made me think twice about drinking to excess, because I might not notice floaties and drink them. Who knows what the hell will happen after that? The campfire image on the bottle did a great job at alerting me that I had found another smokebeer, but the snuggling couple in front of the fire is laughable. The notes are fairly brief for Tinder, but the 6 out of 7 score (which is all too rare of a score) is high enough to overlook how eloquent The Witchdoctor may or may not have been on the night of the official tasting. “So much smoke, smell, fire, campfire, great, wood, fire, cedar, taste, Image = good, Good smokebeer Totally all up in my nose, good smoke flavor, overall 6 of 7 = congrats.” There were also some ramblings about a cab driver getting in a fight on the way downtown, but I don’t need to clutter your mind with the day to day struggles of a lunatic.
