This is a fun little scan-through:

The Bottom 100 Rated Beers on Beer Advocate

I'm happy to see there's not a single beer on that list I would actually say I like.

I've seen it at the grocery store!

The bottles are about as lame as the shirts.

Best beer: Free beer
I like Caffrey's (Irish Ale); the Alaskan Amber and Winter Ale is good. If I'm eating pizza, I like a light beer, usually Miller.

Worst beer: Anheuser-Busch beers with the exception of Michelob.
Blatz was a pretty horrible one along with Red White and Blue beer. But if it's free? What the heck.

I drank some Affligem and Grimbergen when I was in France...by far the best beer I had in my life (even tough I don't drink a lot). Sucks that it is not available here.

Favorite: Shiner Bock (Texas) and "Koelsch" style beers (from Cologne, Germany ... brands like Gaffel or Frueh)
Least favorite: wheat beers ... hefeweisens
Weird: my cousin micro-brews and has used just about every fruit / candy flavor imaginable ... he made something with raspberries one time and it was so ... so .... almost good.

The "weirdest" beer I've drank was probably this:



It's good although very very very sweet. I used to buy the big 750 ml. bottles of it but after one bottle of this stuff I'd have to switch to something else. The toffee and vanilla flavourings really get strong and almost overpowering after awhile.

I'm getting psyched for this summer where I'm going to be making two different trips to Michigan for various conferences/workshops. Planning to hit up Bell's, Founder's, and New Holland Breweries, probably more than once for the first two, as well as any others I happen to get a chance to visit. Will be in Grand Rapids for a few days and plan to spend most of my free time at Hopcat (#3 rated beer bar in the USA).

Hey, all the 30k millies out there need something to drink when they are comparing tribal tattoos and bragging about how "hard" they are.

I like everything I've had from them. Luckily the local beer store has about 13 or 14 of their beers.

****ing amazing beer.

You're right though, can only have 1 or 2 before I change, but it's my favorite.

I had their recent release of I&G Beer which was ferminted in old scotch barrels... my god, it was amazing. 5$ a bottle, and 7% alcohol... but the stuff was like liquid gold.

Just spent 40 bucks on a nice motley crew of beers:

a 6-pack of individual 12 oz. bottles/cans:

-Avery Mephistopheles imperial stout (9.99)
-Oskar Blues Ten Fidy imperial stout (3.99)
-Bell's Expedition imperial stout (3.29)
-Bell's Java imperial coffee stout (2.99)
-Harpoon chololate stout (1.49)
-Great Divide Claymore scotch ale (2.29)

-a 22 oz. bomber of Ipswich oatmeal stout (4.99)

-a 4-pack of Terrapin Wake N' Bake coffee oatmeal imperial stout (9.99)

Looking forward to working my way through this selection, along with some of the stuff I already have lurking at home (bombers of Bear Republic Bear Bear black stout and Lagunitas cappuccino stout).

Had that last year and I agree it's a really nice chocolate/milk stout hybrid (fits its name well ). I thought about getting that today in addition to the Wake N Bake stout but figured I can probably pick it up later.

So I was curious as to how much it would cost on Ebay to get a bottle of Three Floyds Brewing "Dark Lord" Russian imperial stout. Ummm...yeah. I think I'll be waiting a little while to try that one.

Depends somewhat on the vintage but most of the auctions were at $50 or higher for a bomber (not including what ever shipping was) without the auctions being done.

One guy was selling 4 limited edition numbered release bottles for $2000.

Where's the love for the Budweiser? This is an amazing beer, probably the best pilsner i have ever had.

Yes I am talking about the real Budweiser, the Czech one.

Personally, I am of the belief that many people say a certain beer (non-mainstream) is their favourite purely to be unique and "cool".

Or possibly, most of the mainstream beers (Budweiser, Molson, Labatt, Coors, Corona, Heineken, etc.) are awful, flavorless ****.

I guess I should say that Justin Bieber is my favorite musical artist, to avoid seeming like I'm attempting to be unique and cool.
