I'm not sure "watered down" is how I'd describe. What I would say, is that my g/f who HATES beer will drink them...

During the summer I enjoy honey lagers... Granville Island, Sleeman's, Big Rock...

The rest of the year I like anything from a cream ale to a stout.

When I was in Philly in June I made sure to try Yuengling (Traditional Lager) and Victory (which I had at McGillin's... think it was the Prima Pils).

Bad choice of words, but just the way it tastes made me think they used crappy water. Just didn't have the flavor that many other smaller brews of the same general beer types have. I think bland is the best word to describe it. To be fair, they're based out of Wisconsin...

Blue Moon is next and since it is more commonly found then Stella Artois is my most consumed (by a wide margin). Recently I found a place that sells the Blue Moon Honey on tap (Champp's in Marlton, NJ), it is like an orgy in your mouth.
Heineken is my fall back because EVERYONE has Heineken and when I go somewhere that I don't research to make sure they have Blue Moon before hand it is nice to have a backup.

Due to some people here saying Hoegarden > Blue Moon I am going to go buy the biggest pack I can find on my way home from Canal's and use tonight to test the theory by getting smashed playing Xbox. Any others I should pick up with similar tastes?
Bolded line, for sure. That is a GREAT beer.

Also a fan of Sunset Wheat.

Has anyone mentioned any of Long Trail's beer? I recently purchased the "Survival Pack" and EVERY single beer they had was amazing! White Ale is probably my favorite, if I had to pick.

I just thing they're going for an odd taste that apparently appeals to some. My g/f claims that one of their beers (forget which one, and I didn't agree) tastes like fruity pebbles.

Bad sign.

+1. One of the few small companies that's keeping a variety of beers out there on the market. They apparently get offered to be bought out multiple times a year but hold back because they know it'll mess up the beer. Look at Rolling Rock.

It used to be one of my favorite beers; still is in terms of taste. I just literally couldn't deal with my ass the next day at work.

3 Floyd's is a Chicago area microbrewery just over the border in Indiana. Their distribution doesn't get very far, so if you find any of their beers, snag them. They are all excellent... I'd go out on a limb and put them above Stone (which is now distributing here in Chicago).

My favorite 3 Floyd's brew is by far the Moloko Milk Stout...but again, any of them are excellent.

Yes it would... I just enjoy it because it is different and i couldnt compare to other Micro brews of the same category (I simply haven't tried a lot) but i enjoy the Shandy and Amber the most.

On another note...



Had some interesting nights with this...

I've had it, it does kinda taste like fruity pebbles. It's pretty good if you don't like beer.

Love beer
Wegman's in collegeville/malvern is like beer heaven.

Shangy's in bethlehem

My family just had a brewfest this past weekend. We had about 9 different beers brewed by various friends.

The winner was an IBA, India Black Ale!! Absolutely unique and delicious.

I think I may have posted about Victory Hop Devil earlier... but it bears repeating -- in this case beers repeating -- Victory's hoppy Pale Ale is close to Sierra Nevada in quality and taste... if at a bar and there is no SN PA on tap, I never hesitate to order Hop Devil if they have it, and I am happy. It is a good hoppy Pale Ale with the citrus bitter taste of Sierra; I wouldn't be at all surprised if they got hold of their recipe and brewing methods and used the same quality ingredients to duplicate it.





I love a hoppy ale but I tried a six pack of Sierra Nevada's Torpedo Extra IPA -- I believe someone mentioned that earlier -- for some reason it didn't work for me... There was just something about it that missed the mark for me. I don't think it was the extra hops, but I'm not positive; it just was not nearly as enjoyable for me as their regular Pale Ale... I didn't try it on tap though.

I love IPAs and hoppy beers. Hop Devil is fantastic. Try the Imperial Stout too, just not too many, higher alcohol content.

I'll have to try the Sierra Nevada though, for comparison. Stone IPA still goes down as my overall favorite beer, as mentioned before.

If you think Hop Devil is fantastic, you'll love Sierra Nevada... and SN is on many many more taps than HD so it is easier to find, thus a better chance of getting a quality PA... I haven't tried Stone IPA, or any other Stone product, I'll have to rectify that. Thanks.
