Why would anyone pour a beer like that? :psyduck: But yeah, it tastes so good.

As for beer, I'm currently drinking a Double Dog by Flying Dog.

They relabel it so it just says Grande Réserve here. Doesn't say the color at all.

That's what it says on the picture, too.  Blue is a nickname, based on the label color.  Bleue is just the Belgian French spelling of the label color.

Sold an Ithaca Brewery "Box o' Hops" last night.  It's a variety pack of IPA's. 

Because the guy was looking for the highest Alcohol content we had, and the Sierra Nevada Torpedo wasn't cold (it had just been delivered).

What would he do if he were in Oklahoma, where beer over 3.2% isn't allowed to be refrigerated at all before being sold?

Wait, really? If memory serves, Torpedo's only around 7 (checks) 7.2%, yeah. How is that the highest you have? Seven is basically the lowest I'll drink, with few exceptions.

(Not because of the high ABV, the beer I like just tends to be 8+)

That's supposed to be the logic behind it: it's supposed to prevent people from getting drunk while they're still driving home from the liquor store (Oklahoma has a lot of rural areas where the liquor store can be a long drive away).

Yeah, you just know that the old lady who just had you put the case on the seat beside her is cracking one open on the drive up the mountain, despite the open container law. 

We don't sell a lot of non run-of-the-mill beers, so most have the usual bud/busch/miller alcohol level of 5 - 6 %, occasionally higher.  We do sell seasonal stuff, like Mad Elf (~11%?) at christmas, and a bunch of Bock beers in the spring (they're usually over 7%, I think). 

Oh, and Redd's Wicked, which is a little over 8%, but is only sold in 10 oz cans, to moderate intake.  And the lime-a-rita, Straw-br-rita, Mango-rita stuff that's more like 10 - 11%, but sold in 8 oz cans and is meant to be poured over ice.  But that's not beer...

Apparently, I kid you not, PBR is one of the fastest growing beers in the U.S. This is what yahoo finance has to say:

Quote
"The beer teenage kids steal from their parents because it's been in the back of the fridge/in the basement since 1982," wrote someone on Urban Dictionary. Pabst Blue Ribbon has gone from redneck to hipster in recent years. Sales grew 72 percent between 2008 and 2013, according to 24/7 Wall Street, "a trend strangely unassociated with any specific effort by the company." Despite a lack of marketing, PBR shipped 2.7 million barrels in 2013. Maybe the lack of marketing makes the beer seem cool.

It's the only beer I've ever had that tasted better skunked.

If I go cheap beer I usually go High Life. I drink a lot and don't have a lot of money so I don't ever really drink better stuff. Guinness and Sam Adams is about as expensive as I'll go.

Has anyone (UK, gen) seen any beers in the 2.8% Duty bracket? Greene King and Sam Smith's both do them, and they are really nice: Guessing at the strength they have to appeal to the tastebuds. [also Sam's now allow you to dance in their pubs!]

Speaking of Stone IPAs, I tried this number tonight. I had high expectations because I love green tea, and I trusted Stone, and those expectations were met.

You're verging on carbonated brandy at that point...

I'm aging three bottles of 18% beer right now (all Dogfish Head, two 120 Minute IPAs, one World Wide Stout).

DuClaw made Colossus in 2011, apparently that was 21 or 22%!

But yeah, the Colossus I had (the 2014 version, they've only made it twice) was really good.

I'm looking for a recommendation for a beer to try. I don't like hoppy beers, I love wheat beers like Troeg's Dreamweaver or ABC's watergap wheat.  Maybe a nice hefe or lager would work.
