Thanks for all the responses - we Sabres fans know and love our beer!

whiplash: I agree - Newcastle is a decent English Ale, but The Hen has a nicer taste and is smooth as silk.

Clinton st. I will stop in again in the next few days and confirm it for you.

Shockingly drinkable for 8%. Of course their 120 Minute IPA is shockingly drinkable for 18%.

I have a World Wide Stout sitting at home, I'm hesitant to even smell that thing.

I've never had anything over 13% or so, big jump up to the 20% range.

On a different note - has anyone here seen Old Speckled Hen recently? It is a British beer and I have seen it at Premier in the past, but not in some time.


well, in my never ending effort to be helpful, I stopped in consumers on Clinton and checked for you. They have a single solitary bottle in stock. The guy I talked to wasn't sure when t would be back in.

Picked up a growler of Doghead's 90 minute IPA... Not a big IPA fan. But, figure I'd give it a whirl.

Just got back from Twinlo to stock up for tonight's game. Because of this thread I picked up some Ommegang. Beautiful color to it. First sip was a tad too sweet for me. After that the overt sweetness settled into a real nice very subtle smokey sweetness. Kind of a caramel / honey smokiness.

I must say I am quite impressed with Ommegang. Thanks for the tip.



Lets Go Buffalo!

Thank you so much. You are a good human being. Funny, I am not a big fan of IPAs, either.

I think it would be great if we could make a list of the best beers by nation (and state, in the case of the USA) -- based on opinion, of course.

You come all the way from Clarence to tend bar at Dwyers?

You must have a family / ownership interest...

I've seen more than a couple movies at the Riviera punctuated by the sound of a beer bottle rolling downhill towards the stage witht he mighty Wurlitzer...

That's only because of their 3-day customer appreciation, Sunday thru Tuesday. $20 off a $33 purchase. I keep going in there, getting crunked, leaving, and coming back. And it costs me $13 + tip every time. Go figure.

You will not regret. It's fantastic. We pay $28 down here for a growler. I'm sure Consumer's is < $20.

My favorite beer these days is Beau's Lug Tread, a nice, fresh-tasting ale brewed near Ottawa in Vankleek Hill, Ontario.

I was going to say, "Sure, you can definitely post here." Then I got to the part about the vodka and diet root beer. What the heck is up with that?

anyone ever had anything from Starr Hill? They're a brewery right outside of Charlottesville.

I had their "Dark Star Stout" this summer (in bottles, not on tap)... and it was, err, very strong to say the least. Don't really like the taste of smoked meat in my beer.

Not really much of a liquor person.

The only one that I actually like is gin. I can tolerate whiskey. The rest I don't really care for at all. Especially rum. Blech.

I'm a huge fan of Hendricks gin (made with cucumber) + a little Fever Tree tonic (http://www.fever-tree.com/ -- not nearly as sweet as the regular kind). It's fantastic.

Also, Old Raj gin made with saffron is delicious, although outrageously priced.

I also enjoy a good home made caipirinha (Leblon cachacha, muddled lime, and raw sugar) or mojito

You'll want to stay away from Racer 5, then, made by Bear Republic -- another excellent California brewery.

Ha! That was my first thought, too. But since vodka was brought up:

The best vodka in the world is Chopin.
