So the delivery came to the Beer Barn today - Budweiser (and Bud Light  :-P) switched from 30 packs of cans to 36's. 

The 30's were $24.  The 36's are $24.50.  That's right, you get an entire 6 pack of this swill for only 50 cents more. 


They've been flying out the door.  It helps that it topped 83 F today (28 C).  But still... one guy looked like he was going to start drooling on the counter when he saw the sign!

One of the places we go for our beer has 36's of Miller Light for around that price. Nick was as happy as a kid in the candy store. If I'm going to drink that stuff, it has to be ice cold and sitting next to a heaping plate of wings and loaded potato skins.  :-D

Bud is perfect for middle-of-the-road restaurants, deals when clubs/pubs are knocking out bottles or pints for £1, or for a hot day when the beer itself is cold. ANY beer, on that day, is a welcome beer. To me, anyway. So Carl, I would probably pick up a case for that much if I was guaranteed some barbeque weather. Y'know, I'm not even sure that we can BUY a case of 36 in the UK - largest most places do is 20 (330ml bottles usually).

I think we must establish the WORST beers so we don't commit any lager faux-pas's(?). Let's begin our aledoctrination (sorry)

UK regulars:
- Fosters
- Carling
- Cobra (this literally tastes like malt)
- Carlsberg

As you can tell, I'm can stomach cheap ale over cheap lager, feel free to add any cheap nasty ale to the list. I'm also not a fan of Strongbow cider (soon to be involved in a horse piss scandal that will be traced back all over Europe and eventually to Ireland)

I must be missing some. This is the beer thread, we can be snobs if we like. Its how we learn, right?

I just finished off an Abita Purple Haze. Saw that the beer/wine place across the street actually had four-packs of Dogfish Head Midas Touch for $12/ea, I might get one next time to try that one out (it sounds really weird, but really interesting).

A particular sour note for generic store brand beers.

I remember being at a party where there was a generic beer called "stars and stripes" or somesuch... it tasted like fish. Seriously, it's like someone fermented and brewed chum. It was repugnant.

The Oktoberfest beers are out.  Actually, we've had a couple of them in since the last week of August.  Sam Adams, Yuengling, Paulaner, and "Penn Brewery", a company I've never heard of, from whom we carry nothing else.  Just their Oktoberfest beer.  Apparently it's a German restaurant and microbrewery in Pittsburgh.  How we're going to sell a dozen cases of that, I'll never know...

On second thought, maybe it won't be that hard.

I was going to wax lyrical about some of the local beers but realised that it's been several months since I actually drank any. This isn't down to some regime of abstinence but because in this part of the world there's always a range of one shots and specials on the pumps, particularly in summer.
Within 10 miles of where I live there are at least 7 breweries, all of them churning out some really good ales of all descriptions. With the combination of summer, seasonal events, festivals and other special occasions being celebrated breweries are always putting out a variation with a bit of a twist to try and capture the character of the time in the flavour of a pint. Or as one brewer said when we went on a tour, we're just a bunch of beardy idiots mucking about with booze.
I'm at the point where I'll wander into one of the local pubs and just ask "what's yer pales?" and get a pretty decent run down on the tasting notes. On the rare occasions when person at the bar hasn't tasted something, you're almost always given a taster in exchange of a description, even when the brewery's own description is chalked up behind the bar. I usually end up getting a safe bet and a long shot, setting them down on the table in front of the wife and arguing about who's drinking which one.

Anyway, for any visitors passing through the Sheffield area, here's a few of the standards that I can strongly advise as a safe and pleasurable tasting if they happen to be on at the time:
Kelhams Island -  Easy Rider, Pale Rider
Abbeydale Brewery - Moonshine, Deception
Barnsley Brewery - Farmers Blonde
Sheffield Brewery - Five Rivers, Seven Hills
Thornbridge Brewery - Jaipur, Brother Rabbit, Wild Swan
Blue Bee Brewery - The Bees Knees, Lustin for Stout

Went to Phantom Canyon Brewery for dinner. Got their sampler; 8 house brews and 5 seasonals. Overall I was rather disappointed: I went 2-9 for tasty. The first good one I had was one of their seasonal lagers. Beers two through ten were singularly unmemorable. All tasted similarly bitter. Thankfully, I saved the best for last. The house hefeweisen had delicious hints of banana and clove. Would recommend. The rest...not so much.

I have yet to find an IPA that I like.  I tend more towards darker things, ambers, reds, browns... more malt, less hops.

Oh- and for those who enjoy dark beers: Nick bought a case of Killian's "Black" because (I shit you not) it was a box of Killian's in a color he'd never seen before. He doesn't like stout.........I read the box after he brought it home and rejoiced hahaha. It's pretty good! Creamier than Guinness. Very nice...

I always refer to stouts as the chocolate milk shakes of beer.  :-D

Lagunitas can very nearly do no wrong. I had their "Sucks" IPA, which is supposed to be this year's replacement for Brown Shugga (I can't remember the exact story on why that didn't happen this year but whatever). It is misnamed.

here's a little sumpin that'll be more agreeable to fans of more balanced beers: Lagunitas Little Sumpin' Sumpin' ale. Smooth sweet body, tasty hoppy finish, and 7.5% ABV. 64.2 IBUs, which puts it in IPA territory in terms of bitterness, but the slight sweet body has you going back every time like the proverbial kicked puppy.

That's a damn shame, because you're missing out on this year's Firestone Sucaba.



If you've had Sucaba and you didn't absolutely love it, GET THE FUCK OUT OF THIS THREAD YOU DISGUSTING UNCULTURED SWINE-HOUND

Haven't opened the Black Hand yet but I'll get on that later.

There's absolutely nothing stopping me from buying a bottle for when I can drink it, mind you.

I already regret not buying a case, at least I have another one in store for mid-year.

Got a free sample from the distributor, had it on 2/2 (of course).  It was ... really delicious.  All malt, very rich, smooth, somewhat sweet, claims to have German hops, but not overly bitter.  Definite pumpernickel overtones. 

We sold both cases.  They don't make a lot of it...

Guaranteed, we will not. It comes out roughly every February. I'm putting another bottle on hold and I've got the 2nd one from this go-round. I'm going to drink one to my face and hold onto 2 more every year until my best friend Lukas is out of the Air Force, and when he returns, we are gonna get so fucking plastered we'll look like fuckin 19th century architecture
