Probably one of the best things to come out of my home state of Pennsylvania.

Pffft. American beer is basically coloured water.... Big Grin
Prove me wrong. Bring some to the party.

In 2014, 25% of all pennsylvanians claimed to be of german descent. Wink
If a couple of them decide to open a brewery......i would give it a try.

Why is American beer like having sex in a canoe?

It's fucking close to water. Big Grin

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

I'll keep an open mind and willingness to try any american beer I may be presented to. However I do cherish Skepticism and need evidence before believing. Wink

You'd need to work up to lame from that point.

They were so common, and left such a lasting mark, they even got their own nickname; the 'Pennsylvania Dutch'. Why that?


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pennsylvania_Dutch


Pennsylvania Dutch is most likely a corruption of the endonym Deitsch, which is a local variant of the modern German endonym Deutsch, meaning German. The word "Dutch" and "Deutsch" share the same origin and similar pronunciation. The pronunciation though for "Dutch" is with the "u" like in "but" and the pronunciation for "Deutsch" is with "oy" like in "boy". So in the latter it sounds like "Doych [ˈdɔʏtʃ]".

During the Middle Ages the use of "Dutch" in English referred to West Germanic speakers of continental Europe in general. From c. 1600 onward it was mainly restricted to the inhabitants of the Low Countries.



My family is very Germanic. My grandmother's (father's side) maiden name was Schmidt. My stepfather's family name is Dauer, which has a traceable lineage and noble family crest from the Rhineland. My own surname is itself a anglicized form of Dubek, itself of Dutch origin.

Well, as far as Pittsburgh beers go, it's less shitty than Iron City beer. But it's still owned by Anheuser–Busch (Budweiser), so, yeah...

Soudns like a good name for a beer. Skepticism, but maybe give it the alternative spelling Scepticism.
