Beer #1: Weyerbacher's Blithering Idiot.
Beer #2: Firestone's Double Jack IPA
Beer #3: Brooklyn Blast IPA

First two: very different, both delicious.
Third beer: also good, but "worst" of the night.

Further edit: I'd had beer #1 before, the other two was the first time I had them. Also beer #3 was the "weakest" beer, but at 9.0% that's not saying much (11.1% and 9.5% for the other two)

Double Jack is incredible, I had it the other day after trying Wookey Jack for the first time. They were both great, but Double Jack is goddamn incredible.

By the way, the Black Hand I mentioned earlier in the thread... it was awful. Maybe I just don't like stouts but that one was shit.

I've had it once since, although the second time I poured it into a glass. Weirdly enough, that took a way a big chunk of the bitterness, and for me that's a bad thing. It was still good, but I should make sure to drink it from the bottle from now on because it went from "holy shit this is amazing" to "this is pretty good".

I got the Sam Adams Spring Pack over the weekend, and had been sampling the beers from it. I had a Whitewater IPA first, and I don't think I like IPAs. I've had a few digfferent IPAs, and the strong flavor of the bittering hops just isn't my cup of tea. This one is particularly strong, drowning out any other characteristics that the beer might hold. After that, I had the Maple Pecan Porter. The wife said it's like trying to drink a pancake; It has a particularly strong maple flavor. I thought it was pretty good, but I see what she's talking about. Then I had an Irish Red, and that I really like. The flavor is reminiscent of a Bass Ale, but a bit smoother.

I didn't try the Escape Route or the Cold Snap last night, and I don't think the standard Lager that it comes with needs an introduction; if you've drank Sam Adams, you had this.

So far, not a bad pack, IPA notwithstanding.

My hometown/current location of Livermore, California has recently sprung forth the third brewery from her fertile womb, and it is called 8 Bridges. And they make the best fucking Irish red I've ever had in my life. If any of you fuckers decide to visit the SF Bay Area, give me a heads up and we're gonna go beer tasting.

Hehe, given the number of breweries I've heard there are in the Bay Area, it could easily turn into Livernomore.  :-D

I've only ever had a few American beers. The good stuff can be hard to find around here (most good beers are tricky to ship). Some years ago it was possible to find Sam Adams Boston Lager in some malls, but it's no longer the case. I guess I'd have to check specialized shops - once I can afford it, that is. About ten years ago there was a small shop in my city that somehow managed to have Anchor Steam Beer for sale. I loved it, and actually got to recommand it to an inhabitant of the Bay Area I used to chat with on IRC.

I'm mostly fond of Belgian beers or similar stuff. Belgian styles are a huge influence on most Quebecois brewery Unibroue's production, by the way (Fin du Monde is a personal favorite of mines). Among my favourite Belgian beers are Rochefort 10 and Floreffe Triple (the latter having a very nice balance of sweetness, alcohol and bitterness).
Although I enjoy them, I'm not super-fond of IPA. Then again, I haven't tasted many of them.

I don't have much time right now, but I'll go on further later about various beers I enjoy, including local brews of my area and various regions of France.

I've considered moving to Belgium for a long time now, and not just for the beers. For one thing, I once visited Brussels and I loved it. Waaaay more laid-back than Paris.

Urgh... I found 2 drinks with the name Romulan Ale. One is a reportedly nasty tasting beer (no personal experience for this beverage), and the other is an energy drink.

Of course, there's also all the mixed drink recipes, most of which tend to be Everclear with something blue in it.

Patrick we have that bigfoot in my store. I'm glad they sell singles. More'n one and I might be too invincible. I drank some Terrapin Barleywine once when we used to play in the brewery in Athens GA. F%cking erased the part of my brain that fed the lyrics to my tongue. And did NOT give me the good sense to make sh*t up. AndI just drank a sample cup (that the bands get filled, which are a bit fuller than beer tour patrons). There is some dangerous chemistry going on with the Barley wine

Hmm, now I'm thinking a stout that goes heavy on the chocolate and adds some cayenne could be interesting.

Wait, how is there a brew-on-premise place? Doesn't brewing take weeks?

You basically do the boiling steps, then transfer it into a barrel, they pitch the yeast and monitor it for the 2-3 weeks, then you come back and bottle it.

That sounds great! I'll try it if I'm ever in Columbus. Or, you know, find one closer to me :roll:

I will never understand why people have to ruin a perfectly good beer by adding peppers to it.
If anyone could pull it off, it'd be Dogfish Head. I wonder if they'll try.
I'm not familiar enough with that brewery to agree, but the general consensus I get from my customers is that they shit gold.

The problem with stuff like this is that so many of the people who go deep with the experimentation are trying too hard in the wrong places. Brainstorming is all well and good, but until you can execute like Stone or North Coast or Firestone or Lagunitas, you need to calm that drawing board shit down.

(nods) Their 90 Minute IPA may be my favourite beer. Their brewery is only a few hours drive from me, I plan on visiting this summer.

Dogfish Head has pulled off things like this, so I'd say they can execute the drawing board shit.
