The thread for talking about Beer
« on: 21 Dec 2007, 12:24 »

I am not sure if this is suitable, but if the mods are willing I would propose a thread not specifically for posting drunk, but a thread for posting about the nice beers that people drink. Drunk posting will transfer over, but this is just for talkin about beer?

I will have better posts in this thread after I drink some of these Great Whites I have in my fridge.

I just enjoyed a nice, cold Erdinger Weissbier after work today. 'Twas good.

If I want something to sit around and enjoy, however, I'll go for an Ale-, Porter- or Stout-type beer though. I like my ale dark, rich and with taste from here to next week.

 Also didn't I get texted at for putting the word "thread" in the title of my thread?

Delete that one, and post it here.


Dogfish head has rapidly moved towards being my favorite brewery. They just universally make good beers, but their 90 minute IPA is I think my favorite beer. They make some really nice limited run beers that are completely expensive, but totally delicious. Also, their Winter seasonal, the Chicory Stout, is beyond belief.

Yeah hoppier beers, like the Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale have a really citrusy nose, typically, and the hop causes a really bitter first taste. It's my favorite part of most beers.

I really like creamy beers. I was introduced to Boddington's over the summer and was pretty much in love.

And some dude had this beer at a party a few weeks back and I hate myself for not remembering the name. Shit was so creamy, it was like a beer milkshake, except way better than what that phrase implies.

I love the Belgians!

Hoegarden is great
for Trappists I like Orval, Chimay Grand Reserve and Chimay Premium
Rare Vos is always nice
Lindemans Framboise and Kreik are delicious

Outside of the Belgians I like Harp, and german hefeweizens. Some are better than others, but I generally enjoy the style all around. We're lucky enough to have a brewery here in Slippery Rock that has a pretty good selection and keeps their production rotating.

I like a good Hefe-Weissen, like Weihenstephaner. In general, I like my beers to have a lot of good flavor to them, but if it is a beer that needs to be ice cold and served in a frozen mug, keep it. Those never make my taste buds happy. Anything nice and thick... hell, almost CHEWY... we're good.

Above all, on behalf of America, I am so sorry for light beers.

I typically don't mess around with foreign beers and microbrews because they aren't typically stocked anywhere I can theoretically walk to and from carting a carton of beer, and Australian beers are almost exclusively dreck, so I keep a fridge stocked full of Coopers Pale Ale at any given oppourtunity. Not a fan of the sparkling though, its a bit iffy to me. At the moment however, I have cracked one of the Carlton Draughts that belong to my flatmates boyfriend, because beer you didn't pay for is always delicious, no matter how bad it is.

I really like most beers done by the Matilda Bay Brewing Company (guess where they're based?) and pretty much everything done by the Malt Shovel brewery, which is only about 10 minutes away. Their amber and golden ales are awesome.

Pale ales are really under-appreciated, I find. Alexander Keith's India Pale Ale is probably one of the best ales you can get across the country.

Here in Saskatchewan we have the Great Western Brewing Company. They market an excellent lager that they simply refer to as "Great Western Premium." Another beer of theirs that I've been meaning to try is the Extra Gold, which is 9% alcohol tucked inside what is reportedly a very smooth malt.

Another western Canadian brewery I'm fond of is Big Rock, which operates out of Calgary. Their beer is almost universally great, with the exception of Grasshopper which is kind of thin. However, they've also got their rich, red Traditional Ale, their wonderfully smooth Honey Brown Lager, and McNally's Extra, an Irish ale that's brewed especially for the eponymous tavern which is located here in Regina.

I advise against the Youngs Christmas Ale. Had a pint today at my local because the Flowers was still settling. When I drunk it, it was one of the blandest, gassiest pints of bitter I have had in a long while, but the aftertaste and effect upon the stomach were truly unpleasant.

Actually, I find seasonal ales to generally be an incredibly spotty affair. Most of them are unremittingly awful, but some are very good. I rather like Greene King's 'Winter King' ale.

5 posts in a beer thread without talking about any Bay Area brews is a travesty. But more than 10? FUCKING PREPOSTEROUS

Anchor Steam and He'brew came to mind in the Drunk Thread and I'll be damned if they don't get mentioned here.

Pale Ales are under-appreciated, but a Pale Ale is quite a different drink from an India Pale Ale.

There's been an incredible upswing in interest in micro-breweries and craft beers in Australia lately, especially in Melbourne - thanks in a large part to the popularity (and excellence) of the Mountain Goat Brewery. It seems like every month there's another brewery opening its doors (I know because I have a specialty beer bar around the corner from my house which is run by two of people who are possibly even more snobbish about their beer than I am, bless 'em). Naturally a lot of the breweries that are opening up around here lately are trying to jump on the bandwagon, and don't really know what they're doing - and the beer they produce is pretty mediocre. But some of them are really starting to shine. The 3 Ravens brewery, after a slightly shaky start, is now really flying (scuse the pun) and in terms of quality probably rivals Mountain Goat - though they make completely different beers from the Goat range, which is good. Their Blond is especially good.

reposting my last post in the other thread:

Leinenkugels, Capital Brewery, New Glarus, Summit, Berghoff, Sprecher, and Goose Island are all really good craft brews available in a good part of the upper midwest. Capital Brews are probably my favorite around, the brewery's like a block from my house, and they have an outdoor beergarden in the summer with live music and stuff. Their beer is amazing as well, they've won rediculous amounts of awards for pretty much every one of their beers, including "America's #1 Rated Brewery" by the Beverage Testing Institute's World Beer Championships.

Red Hook, Rogue, Dogfish, and Smutty Nose are all good ones I've tried that might be available around the country if you've got a good liquor store in the area.

I had some beers today! They were quite good. But, reading this thread i realize, again, the one big drawback about German beer culture: you can basically get a decent beer everywhere, but (at least in rural areas like around here) you don't have many options, if at all, and there are no specialized shops that sell the really good beer. The kind of beer that you'd pay twice as much as for the normal stuff, which is (I've said it before) of quite a high quality here.

I'm not sure my taste buds work right. I drink PBR pretty exclusively, not because of the hipster factor, but because I genuinely like the taste.

I also liked the Killian's Red, and Sam Adams, and Bass but I couldn't tell you why. There was a restaurant here that brewed it's own beer, and they had a California red that was probably the best beer I'd ever had, but that was probably because it was so fresh. I don't even know what any of the beer terms actually mean, though I've seen the brewing episode of Modern Marvels at least a dozen times. Basically, help me?

She called me late last night
To say she loved me so
It didn't matter anymore, I'll say she never cared
And that she never will
I'd do it all again
I guess I'll have to wait until then

If I get drunk well I'll pass out on the floor now baby,
You won't bother me no more,
And if I'm drinkin' well
You know that you're my friend
And I say I think I'll have myself a beer.

She called me late last night to say she loved me so
But I guess She changed Her mind.
Well I should have known it wouldn't be all right
But I can't live without her
So I won't even try...

If I get drunk well
I'll pass out on the floor now baby,
You won't bother me no more,
And if I'm drinkin' well
You know that you're my friend
And I say I think I'll have myself a beer.

Maybe some day, I'll think of what to say,
Maybe next time I'll remember what to do! (do, do, do)
She looks like heaven, maybe this is hell,
Said she'd do it all again
She promised not to tell!

If I get drunk well,
I'll pass out on the floor now baby
You won't bother me no more
(and she said) It's OK boy cause
You know we'll be good friends and I say
I think I'll have myself a beer

I like a lot of beers, mostly ones that do not contain the words Bud, Coors, Miller, Michelob, or contain any variation on the word Light or Lite.  I also do not accept fruit or sweet in my beer.  (Or in my vodka) 
That being said, my home beer is almost always Becks (as they sell the 12pk cans nearby, and I got a couple cases of Oktoberfest on the cheap), Newcastle (kept out of the fridge, not in), Spaten (any variety, currently stocked up on 2 cases of Oktoberfest)  When Im out and about... well... have a look at the current beer list for one of my favorite places.

http://www.maxs.com/beerlist.php

Yes, you see that correct, currently (as of dec 22nd) they have 66 beers... ON TAP.  It also rotates as they use up kegs.  it averages between 60-70 beers on tap.

Also, when the bartenders remember you, know what you like, and they know their beers.  I  have ordered by taste (I ordered: Something Dark, Not Sweet, No Fruit) on more than one occasion, and not once have I been dissapointed.

Lunchbox and her boyfriend got me a box full of beers from around the world for my 21st birthday a month ago, which is a fantastic idea:



I normally drink the Pilsner made by Bluetongue, a local Newcastle brewery, but I wish they bottled their Indian Pale Ale which I've tried at the brewery, its the best beer I think I've ever had. James Squire's Golden Ale is also pretty nice, and nothing beats a Guiness fresh from the tap

The best ale is almost certainly Harveys Sussex Best Bitter. However I have a liking for Theakstons Old Peculiar and also Hobgoblin. At the other end of the spectrum Greene King IPA is quite refreshing and light - the Deuchars IPA however has rather an unpleasant aftertaste but for my money to best IPA is most certainly Dark Star. As for lagers, if we're talking mainstream fizzy lager I would have to go for San Miguel, or if I'm back in Norn Iron it would be Harp.

Of course the best sort of drink in the world is Guinness, regular in Ireland, extra cold in England. I also enjoy Heineken and Amstell. God knows why.

I have only one thing to say: I live in the Pacific Northwest, and Full Sail Ale brewery is five minutes from my house.

Harp is a bit grim really but San Miguel is decent. The reason you enjoy Amstel is because it's a good beer, there's nothing wrong with lager when it's done well. It definitely deserves better than to be mentioned in the same breath as Heineken, which although drinkable is more a tool for getting battered than a tasty beverage.

I really hate all this extra cold nonsense though, it's so vile and the stuff always gives me a horrendous headache.
