    Default The Beer Thread

    This place has been dead lately, so let's discuss something that everyone loves. What is your favorite brewery, favorite type, favorite beer? Rave about the ones you love, warn us about the ones you hate.

    I just picked up a pack of Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA. I've heard great things about Dogfish Head, and even better things about the 90 minute, so I decided to spend the $9.99 on the 4-pack. Haven't tried it, but will later this week.
    Our intent is all for your delight.

    My fave is either Alaskan Amber or Fat Tire, but I'm not much of a conossuier (sp?)

    I've had Alaskan Amber and Alaskan Winter Ale, and both were amazing. I like Fat Tire, but there are definitely better ones out there. Frambozen (sp?) has been my favorite New Belgium beer so far, with Tripel a close second.

    That used to be my favorite beer. It's still up there, but not my #1..

    My favorite breweries are Dogfish Head, Bell's, Clipper City, Rogue, and others I'm sure I'm leaving out.

    I usually gravitate towards Stouts and IPA's. My favorites are:

    Bell's Two-Hearted Ale (my #1 beer)
    DFH: World Wide Stout, 90min IPA, Immort Ale
    Clipper City: Loose Cannon (DIPA), Winter Storm (Imperial ESB)
    Rogue - Chocolate Stout
    Dominion - Oak Barrel Stout, Tupper's Hop Pocket Ale

    I'll have to check out the World Wide Stout and Immortal Ale. Hopefully it isn't too late to pick up a WWS this weekend, and I'll just have to wait a few months to try the Immortal.

    Have you tried the 120min IPA? I'm going to pick one of those up next time they brew it (in March I think).

    I also tried the Raison D'Etre. Good, but nothing to write home about.

    I love stouts, but they seem to taste the best during the winter, so I usually only drink them from about December-end of February.

    The WWS is really a one of a kind experience. There's not really anything else out there to compare it to. I've had the 120, but to be honest I didn't really like it. I found it to be really sweet, and syrupy. But, I would recommend anyone to try it once.

    Ditto on the stouts, that's all I pretty much drink right now. Spring/Summer I drink IPA's, lagers and wheat beers, Fall I drink pumpkin ales.

    If discussing wine and/or liquor brings you here, I'm more than willing to discuss them too!

    I actually got to go to the brewery when we went on our Alaskan cruise almost 2 years ago. It's this tiny little hole in the wall, the "tour" consisted of standing in a room with the "guide" and listening to him talk. It was totally informative, and interesting but funny because their operation is so small. and they distribute all their own beer, so i love that i can buy it down here and it's still relatively cheap, usually around 7.50 for a 6 pack.

    had one with dinner, and i think i'll go for seconds

    I can get it locally at a few different shops. I know they only distribute to 13 states, so I'm not sure if yours is one of them.

    I looked it up at a few different places around here, none of them carry it. I'm going to check some places back home (in Wisconsin). Also, I'll be in Michigan this weekend, so I'll swing by a store or two there.

    They're located in Michigan, so I don't think you'll have any problem finding some there.

    Incredible beer. If you find Bell's, you might wanna pick up their HopSlam. I've never had it, but reviews of it are amazing. Its supposed to be like their Two-Hearted Ale, but kicked up a notch.

    Do you visit a beer website as well? I just joined ratebeer.com to get some reviews, though I have yet to write any.

    realbeer.com for their forums, and beeradvocate.com for reviews (though, I've never written any either).

    Cool, thanks.

    Sam Adams White Ale is out. Not that exciting, but I've always really enjoyed this one.

    I'm shocked that Pabst Blue Ribbon hasn't garnered a mention... not once!

    It's my beer of choice- for everyday use, that is.
