I really like german beers. König Pilsener is one of my favourite ones at the moment.
Flensburger Pilsener and Binding Pils are nice too.

Edit: Nevermind. Just enlarged the picture. I remember Troegs' mentioning that their next scratch beer was going to be pumpkin. This was a month or two ago.

It was probably for the time. I just took a tour of Troegs with my dad on Tuesday. Fun stuff. Got a bottle of that, Perpetual IPA and Flying Mouflan:

I prefer Red Racer in terms of IPA's from Canada's west coast, but I quite enjoyed Fat Tug. Thrilled to have gotten a chance to try it.

Been working through a Big Rig (Chris Phillips brewery) Black IPA growler tonight. A bit more stout-like with minimal hops, but enjoyable.

Now that I'm home for Christmas, a buddy and I just split up 4 bombers of Double ******* Ale and 4 bombers of Stone IPA. God bless craft brews, and I dont even believe in God yet. I loves me some Christmas though.

Any barleywine suggestions for New Years?

Sierra Nevada Bigfoot and Brooklyn's Monster Ale are two good, relatively cheap and easy to find barley wines. You can't really go wrong with them. I also usually like Fullers Vintage Ales. They're typically a little bit lighter on alcohol (8%-ish) and bitterness and as such may rather be classified as English Strong Ale, but they remain excellent full bodied beers to sip on a winter night.

I have to admit that after trying to find a tasty IPA that IPA is just not for me.
My worst experience: Ninkasi Tricerahops

After having moved from Germany to Eugene, I have to say that a lot of beers are a lot hoppier than I expected. Even the Becks beer is hoppier than in Germany as are the Weizen. And the cheap stuff tastes like water (Miller/PBR/RollingRock etc).
I like Rogue Hazelnut but it's damn expensive IMHO.
My alltime favourite is: Altenmünster hopfig herb

The hoppiness is way over done in NA.





Ive had plenty of pale ales that had more hops than IPAs from the UK.

To me it really destroys the beer culture when everyone tries to outhop the other guy especially in beers where hops are relatively tame.

It used to be great back 10-20 years ago when a few unique brands were doing it. Now everyone and their dog does it.

Understandable there. I personally like it, but there are a lot of beers that by design go overpowering with it so I can definitely see how someone wouldn't be a fan. My favorite double IPA (which is what Tricerahops is) is probably the Stone Ruination since they do a great job of balancing the taste. But with a double IPA you're still going to get that heavy hop hit regardless. There are some east coast IPAs that are a good bit more mild then the west coast IPAs that I've tried tend to be.

Any of the homebrewers in here ever mess with adding pepper to a chocolate stout? I'm feeling pretty adventurous about what to try next since I've had solid results from my homebrews so far. I have the planned process for it down for the most part (save it for the secondary, sanitize the peppers with starsan and cut, put in grain bag taped to the top of the fermentation container, check every few hours after a couple days in secondary), but it's more pepper recommendations that I'm looking for. Chipotle peppers are definitely an option and probably what I'm leaning towards, but I'm also considering Serrano or New Mexico Anaheim's.
