OT: The Beer Drinkers Thread

This thread will hopefully unite the beer drinkers in this forum. Talk about anything beer related that you want!!

I just picked up a case of Full Moon - Winter Ale..It's made by the people of Blue Moon. It is getting down to temp as we speak and I am excited to try it because I love Blue Moon.

In Philly it's simply known as "Lager". Most everyone knows which one you mean, and if they don't they deserve ridicule.

Full Moon is money. I picked it up a week or two ago and was quite happy with it. It's a perfect fit if you want a winter styled beer that isn't quite so dark.

I picked up Long Trail's Hibernator (winter ale) this weekend. It seemed pretty bland, but having a cold probably messed with my taste receptors quite a bit. I'll have to give it another shot when my head clears out.

Molson Canadian and Yuengling would be my first choices, but being in college Light beer is preferred by most. Frankly i'll drink anything but Keystone and Blue Moon

Kinda pointless seeing as you are all in the States or Canada, but if by some miracle 'Trade Winds' by Cairngorm brewery in Scotland is exported to you guys, you must try it... def one of my favourite ales of all time. 'London Pride' by Fullers is a popular choice, and apparently 'Belhaven 90 shilling' is the shizz at 8ish %, but it's only available during winter.

Another one to try was gooseberry beer... so... good...

Beast! lol
Reminds me of my college days when we drank Beast and Natty Light and Natty Ice.

I like Hoegaarden a lot too since I've become more refined. But I always chuck the lemon out. Beer shouldn't have fruit in it.

Ha! yeah, but Corona without lime tastes like crap. Hoegaarden can stand alone without it.
In California I see people putting Amaretto in Corona and walking around with a red beer.

i like the beers over there in short bursts, but cask ales tend not to have the taste that a well crafted micro brew, Belgian, or German beer do.

London Pride is well worth a stop in a pub, however.

i'm not a huge fan of Hoegaarden, but it has its spot. when you get into the Belgian beers (fun fact: Philadelphia consumes more Belgian beer than any other city in the world outside of Belgium) there are better options, IMO.

i will also note that spitting on the fruit is a bit silly... steak can stand on its own without seasoning, but the seasoning can be nice. Blue Moon, for example, is fantastic with a orange slice thrown in there.

as far as Corona... throw a shot of Bicardi Limon into a bottle and you got yourself a "diver down." only problem with this drink is that you're hammered in about an hour.

I'm okay with it. If I'm on a Corona binge, I usually spend an obscene amount of money on it anyway, this might make me consume less of it.

The logic is flawed, though it sounds good in theory. Just like pre-partying you think you will spend less when you go out if you get drunk at home ahead of time. But what happens then is when you get to the bar you get crazy and start ordering rounds of shots for everyone, plus you also end up drinking the same amount anyway.
