What is the strangest but tasty beer anyone has ever had?

For me, it would have to be a rose beer that my brother's old roommate made.

just tried a flemish wild ale for the first time this past weekend. i can't recall who made it (BFM abbaye de saint bon-chien sounds familiar, but that may have just been one on the menu i was thinking about getting), but it was certainly funky with flavors of dirty leaves and wet shoes... oddly enjoyable though.

also, to make a proper cider, try to find yourself an apple cider without preservatives and add in a natural yeast source such as apple skins or unpeeled grapes that have that white powdery coating on them.

I had a rose-flavoured beer not too far ago.

Rather good.

Otherwise, a beer called "Bog Water", which is brewed in Ontario, and is actually a Gruit.

Micro-Monday

Just a heads up... Last night I met up with a friend from Brooklyn as he visited his mother in South Jersey. We met at P. J. Whelihan's on Haddonfield Road which is listed as Haddonfield location... Got here to find that they have a special on Monday's where Microbrews on tap are all $2.00 off their already reasonable prices (around $5.50 +/- per draught) unil closing.

They have a large number of taps and only a few are taken by the popular Bud/Millers/Coors of the World... the rest are quality Micros and Imports. Many Micros are local and some are unusual... They are all the superior brands rather than the lesser breweries... and there are some higher alcohol ratio ones that come in small quantities (11 oz or so) and are more expensive ($8.00 +/- minus the $2.00 off). They have a printed list with the Brewery/location/beer name/style/description/price/etc. and the bartenders while not experts are helpful and will supply hefty samples if you question them on a beer.

I am not sure if all P.J. locations have Micro-Mondays... it is not listed on the website's specials nor events.

On an OT note... being a Monday with predicted bad weather, and snow falling while there, the crowd was tiny as the Pens/Caps game ended... but in the handful here was Derian Hatcher and a pretty lady sitting alone at the far end of the bar, away from everybody... I didn't bother them. I found it to be a nice coincidence.

Troegs is good stuff, that is one of their best IMO.

Me and my roommates threw in for a keg of Brooklyn EIPA this weekend, it was a 130 dollar keg on sale for 50 bucks! Here's a bottle for reference:

chipotle stout (homebrewer made it)

north coast old style cask aged, a beer just shy of a barleywine
deschutes black butte 21, porter aged with coffee and coffee nibs in bourbon barrels

it was alright, good idea that need to be worked on some more

the doppelbock was nice, my friend used some hard to get smoked barley from a german friend of his and make this thick smoky beer that was almost like drinking bacon.

For anyone in the Philadelphia area, I would definitely check out Victory Brewing Company in Downingtown, PA (about 30 min outside the city). They always have about 15 beers on tap (some are static but many rotate throughout the season) and they introduce new beers pretty frequently. My personal favorite is their "Scarlet Fire" which is a seasonal beer they just put on tap, it has a delicious aftertaste of smokey hops that isn't parallelled by any beer I've tried.
To celebrate their 15th anniversary, they released Headwaters, an IPA that is a little less hoppy than Hop Devil, and a bit more sweet, and IMO it is much more sessionable than a stronger-tasting IPA like Hop Devil. Check out their restaurant, and order some wings.. I'll be cooking them

I'm not kissing ass because I work there, I work there because I have always loved the restaurant and their beer, so don't disregard my opinion as me trying to advertise

If you're in the Exton area, they have that on tap at Winners Circle by the Exton Mall (at least last time I was there). My girlfriend is a waitress there, so I'm there all the time.

Has anyone else tried the Craft Ale House in Limerick? Great place with over 30 bottles, pretty good food, and reasonable carryout mixed 6 pack prices (20% off if you get 6 bottles). I still need to try the WorldWide Stoudt that I bought there.

Since I'm a big fan of Erdinger's Dunkel, I searched around for the WS one...gotta say, I'm not all that fond of it. Seems to have much less flavour. Definitely prefer Erdinger's version.

Love trying new beers though and glad you posted that suggestion on here.

Shout-outs to:

Allagash White
Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA
Hitachino White
Lindeman's Lambic Framboise (girly and delicious)
Samuel Smith everything
Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale


And I once bought a keg of Victory Golden Monkey for a fraternity party. I wrecked about 30 man-weekends with that. We had a keg of Yuengling every Thursday night. Good times. . .
