Not too many beers out there that I don't like, but Magic hat #9 is one of my favorites. If I'm in the mood for a stout it's gotta be Murphy's it blows Guinness away. On a disappointing note Sam Adams changed their spring seasonal from white ale to noble pils. Not sure if anyone else is a big fan of the sam adams seasonal beers, but that was my favorite. I can't even imagine what the hell would possess them to do something so dumb...

I'm enjoying a nice Brother Thelonious Ale right now, courtesy of North Coast Brewery. A beautiful dark, rich malty amber ale. Smooth as silk. Oh, and 9.4%. Zoinks.





It's a good thing.

Anybody?

We go on a fishing trip to Ontario every year and I developed quite a taste for this. Haven't been able to find it in The Beer Store up there the last few years but they still make it.

For me:
Beamish > Guinness > Murphy's. I do like all three but I never did get that into the Murphy's


Tonight, I am broke and saving up for el Superbowl so it's a budget crunch with some good old fashioned NATURAL ICE! Try not to be jealous.



Chain: I guess you're on the ol' diet now but if you like Magner's try some Strongbow if you get the chance. I like some of the Irish ciders every now and then. They're especially tasty after working up a good sweat (we used to always go out for a few Strongbow's after our soccer games) and you don't want anything too bitter or... bite-y.

Mixing the 120 Minute and World Wide Stout is even better.

You've had the Heaven & Hell Black & Tan? Much respect. There are few who know the pinnacle, who have experienced the acme of what life offers. Congrats.

When I was living in Cork our apartment was right across the river from the Beamish brewery...when the weather was right we'd get that hoppy smell wafting through the place. Sadly the Beamish brewery closed in 2009, it was historically the oldest brewery in Ireland up to that point. Since Heineken now owns both Beamish and Murphy's they are both brewed in the old Murphy's brewery on the north side of Cork.

It's true what they say that the stouts you get here in the USA are nothing like the pints they pull in Ireland, and out of the US varieties I like Guiness the best. In Ireland, Beamish was my choice though.

Nope, you can get it by the four pack at the store down the way here


Tonight it's 3.50 beers in midtown for the USA - Canada game and the best nachos I have come across down here (still not quite as good as Century Grill, though )

On a good note:
^^^ I love both their 90 and (I think it is) 60 IPA. On a business trip this week, there's a place with Tuesday happy hour special of the Dogfish IPA. But I gave up beer for Lent.

On a bad note:
I just realized MGD 64, which had become my "yardwork" beer, is only 2.8% alcohol. WTF. (When it's 95 degrees and 95% humidity, I can't drink the good brews until I"m finished with 2-3 hours of yardwork, so I alternate a few cheaper beers with roughly equal amounts of ice water.) Probably back to Miller lite, or Milwaukee's Best ICE come spring cleanup season. I'll hopefully be starting my seeds indoors next weekend.

What is worse?

A. I have back-to-back posts in a beer thread?
B. That it's 3 weeks between posts (none of you has had a good beer post idea since then? - for shame!)
C. that I gave up beer for Lent, but have rescinded it while on vacation.

Currently sipping a Sweetgrass IPA from the Grand Teton Brewing Co., Victor, ID.

6.5% alcohol by volume. That, combined with the taste, and the time zone change, may mean I'm in bed as soon as the Wings game ends.

Not a fan of most bigger Canadian or American breweries. I like mom and pop operations and usually more-so of a dark beer drinker, with strong notes of flavour and something of the more full-bodied nature.

Guinness
Kilkenny
Innis and Gunn Vanilla
Brown Leffe
Fort Garry Dark
Half Pint's Stirstick Stout
Hockley's
Golden Draq - 10.5% alc vol. DELICIOUS!
Oyster Stout

Those are some nice beers.

Great idea. It's friday, 3:45 p.m., 95F, I'm sitting in the garden and a cool beer seems to be the perfect fit.

Ha... sorry for opting for the OT thread instead of resurrecting this one, Chain.

After yesterday's events, this one should be a bit more popular now...

Summer ales, folks: what are you drinking?

The obvious choices for this weekend:

-Sam Adams (Patriot and Brewer) Boston Lager and Summer Ale
-Yuengling Light (America's Oldest Brewery, Pottville, PA)
-Pabst Blue Ribbon (red white and blue)

(note: I do not drink Budweiser / Anheuiser-Busch products)
I have yet to try Sam's Summer Ale... tasty?

I had to dig this one out of three-month hiatus, so no worries.

I've been drinking a lot of cider on the few occassions I've had to have a few. Doc's remains my personal favorite right now -- very dry, very drinkable... reminds me of a smooth(er) cuvee.

And with the construction and moving work, probably a fair volume of crap -- Blue Light likely.

Wheat beer (even non-alcoholic) is just awesome while it's so hot outside .

Blue light is a great cheap staple for party situations, though.

Tell me more about this cider of yours. I know you've brought it up before. Is this acquirable at Premier in their beer section, or would it be in the booze section?

Any specific recommendations?

My end goal is to walk out with five or six brews to try out for tomorrow's party.

You drinking Shandygaff or Radler? (For those who haven't been, it's lemonade and beer mixed... I found it pretty refreshing when I vacationed in Germany many moons ago.)
