Anyway, enough of this macro ********. Anyone been to Belgium, more specifically Brussels? Got a trip planned in mid March. Hotel is right near Cantillon so that's atop my list of course. Not sure about Westvleteren. Would be cool to see but I've had all their beers now and I don't plan on buying any. I kinda have a list made from beer sites, but if anyone here has been, let me know.

How many Cantillon beers have you tried at that bar in Aylmer?

L'Autre Oeil? Oddly, never been there. Always been aware its there, just never made the trip over. I've had the organic Geuze, though. Very good, and one of the few sours I've had.

That's me. I'll drink IPAs if they aren't overly hoppy, but normally I'm not a big fan. Give me a Stout, Porter, or Belgian Dark any day.

Heineken is disgusting. I can hardly drink it, the after taste is just so terrible. Heineken lite is a little better. If I am forced to drink crappy beer I'll take Corona or Bud Lite over Heineken every time. Luckily I rarely ever drink crappy beer.

Smithwick's is a good beer. Still there are much better beers out there.

I actually don't have a personal favorite. There are certain beers that are more widely available that are go-to-beers, but otherwise I don't have anything that I can say is my favorite.

For example, summer time I'll always buy at least one six pack of Brooklyn Summer and Blue Point Blueberry
In the fall Brooklyn Oktoberfest & Brooklyn Post Road
In the winter Brooklyn Winter or maybe Troegs Mad Elf or if I can find it Corsendonk Christmas.

That doesn't necessarily mean that they are my favorite beers, it means that they are beers that are consistently good or at some point really stuck out in my mind and typically easy for me to find. Also typically when I go out to bars those are the beers I try to avoid and instead get something that I've never had before or rarely have unless nothing else is available.

I had a Red Hook Pilsner the other day. That was rather enjoyable.

All regional beers made in the tristate area. Many of those companies don't distribute that far out west.

I actually remember I went to Brooklyn Brewery and they were saying that they sell beer in Israel but not California. They were in the middle of an expansion at the time though, so that may change (if it hasn't already).

There are also foreign beers, which if you look hard enough you should be able to find.

Do they carry Victory's Prima Pils out that way? That's another good one to be on the lookout for.

I'd probably get a single first to see if you like it if you find it.

Not in my regular supermarket but I go shopping with a friend that has a car (not many markets in Eugene in walking distance) soon and I'm going to look for it. Thanks for the tip.
Edit: I found the Stone Ruination. I'm gonna try it in the evening just to get an idea.

from my experience:

Worst: Bud/Coors
Best: Red Stripe

Now I admit I am not a beer drinker, but when I was in Jamaica this time last year, I was introduced to Red Stripe and actually enjoyed it.

Finally got around to trying He'brew's Bittersweet Lenny's RIPA. Absolutely amazing DIPA; one of the only few that I will ever rank with Great Divide's Hercules. One of the best mouthfeels ever Ive had in a beer.

Got a small US haul from my dad who was down for the day today.

Dogfish Head 60 Minute (bottled in September....should still taste good, but a little disappointing)
Dogfish Head 90 Minute (2 weeks old! Perfect)
Oaked Arrogant *******
Goose Island IPA (August bottle....uh oh)
Stone Pale Ale
Rogue Dead Guy (had many times, but...)

My dad did well for not knowing too much about beer.

Tried the Ruination. A lot better than Tricerahops. Still not my favourite
But since most of the beers are hoppier than I expected, I think I`m getting used to the taste. It's definitely different, but it's not like the first Pils I tasted was delicious.
Bought another Red Hook. It grows on me. And it's relatively cheap for a good beer.

I've been drinking Newcastle Winter IPA lately.

Smooth, mellow IPA. Not very hoppy with a bittersweet aftertaste. I like it.
