    If I'm gonna have a beer, I'm gonna drink a real man's beer.
    Not this watered down crap that might as well be kool-aid.
    I'll take an imported dark lowenbrau any time.

    Get some torula yeast and you can brew beer from sawdust.

    I imagine pine-beer would be kinda gin-like.

    You can substitute several things for hops with good results, including
    catnip and pot.

    Not to mention all the horrible other things you can wrestle into the
    boil-bags.

    indeed. hops were not used in beer until rather recently, i believe
    between 700 AD and 1,000 AD. before that, they used all kinds of
    stuff, including hot red pepper.

    probably. though im not sure id call it beer, as it was not made with
    grains.

    beer: made from grains.
    wine: made from fruits.
    mead: made from honey.

    Yeah, honey is going up faster than the hops, what with all the bees

    If you harvest your own hops and cure them in a smoker, you'll have

    Unless you're referring to red peppecorns (unlikely or at least very
    uncommon, IMO, given the expense), red (chile) peppers cannot have been
    used to flavor beer before 1492CE, since they originated from the "New
    World", along with potatoes and tomatoes.
