Quaff n’ Queef in Homer, Alaska

Sooooooo…

I go to Homer Brewing Company in Homer, Alaska for a growler of China Poot Porter and as I’m outside getting started on it I meet a local dude named Bob. As usual, beer flows freely from growlers and I start talking about THE BEER MAN SHOW. Bob’s excited and tells me I really should go see his friend, Rob, who brews a magical potion called Quaff. “What’s Quaff?,” I inquire. “Home brew that will blow your mind,” he says. “Jump in your car, follow me and you’ll find out…”

Right on, let’s do this!

Off we go careening down a fire road kicking up the dust. About 20 miles later we end up at Rob’s log cabin in Anchor Point, Alaska and introductions are made. Shortly thereafter the Quaff is tapped and starts slipping southward down everyone’s throat. Kinda like 4 dudes and 1 cup.

Ha! I make a joke.

Anywho… The fragrance is intoxicating in and of itself. I detect an aromatic bouquet of fresh ginger, lemon, and wisp of alcohol. It tastes clean, crisp, refreshing, and effervescent. The subtle tartness of lemons with a ginger bite sweetened to a tee with honey from a nearby beehive disco dance on my palate. The ingredients are simple enough, but the end result is unbelievable! Unfiltered, untreated, pure Alaskan spring water with honey, lemons, and ginger. After the mash is complete pitch Champagne yeast into the fermentation kettle and let the magic begin. A month later, voila! Quaff.

There’s quite an unexpected kick to Quaff deceptively masked by a subtle sweetness. One would never guess +10% ABV, but it is. I was definitely feeling good after a few of these! But there’s more…

I was then handed Quaff’s evil stepmother Queef (yep). Queef is 120 proof Moonshine distilled from the same ingredients and will knock anyone’s ass into traction.

Now we’re talkin’!!!

After all of us are perfectly pissed on Quaff n’ Queef my new friends threw freshly harvested marinated Moose on the barbecue wrapped in organic cabbage and other organic veggies picked from the garden that day. The supper was indescribably delectable.

After we were fattened up and out of our minds, next thing you know we’re dancing around a raging bonfire chanting incantations to native American spirits deep in the boondocks of Alaska. Doesn’t get any better than that.

Beers To Infinity!
