I've had about three of their beers; Pumpkin Ale, Hops Infusion and Insanity. Their Pumpkin Ale may be one of the better Pumpkin Ale I have had and the Insanity is good but pricey. Hops Infusion really doesn't stand out too much to me as an IPA.

Their pumpkin ale was good, though, based on the one bottle I had several months back, I don't recall thinking it was better than the Dogfish Head version.

Have you had Heresy? I like imperial stouts and things that have been aged in oak barrels, but I just haven't picked it up yet. I think about it every time I go to my local beer shop, though.

Got 2 variety packs of craft beer last night, let you know what I think of them later.

Has anyone given home brewing  a try? I'm thinking of getting a kit and trying my hand a brewing beer

A good friend of mine home brews all the time. He loves his creations. They're...okay. Not sure about cost or what's required or anything, though, but the beer itself could certainly be worse.

It's not fancy or anything, but Friday I had a couple of "Belgian Brunettes" at Old Chicago, which for those not in the know is Guinness and Stella Artois together. Very tasty.

I'm not much for local, imported, or specialty brews, but two I do favor are Bell's Porter and Breckenridge Brewery's Vanilla Porter. Bell's is a very dark and malty brew, and Breckenridge's Vanilla is...kind of how it sounds. Very smooth. Bell's is based in Michigan (I believe) and Breckenridge is in Colorado, so I get both here in Minnie. I'd highly recommend either if you're a fan of porter.

I dove into the two vairety boxes last night, trying one from each.

The Gonzo Imperial Porter from Flying Dog Brewery is real, real good. Not to mention all their beer seems to be Hunter S. Thompson inspired. I may be a fan for life if the rest of their beer holds up.

The other variety pack came from Saranac beers, specifically I tried their Stout. It was good, but a bit bland. Stout is hard to get right, IMO, and most American stouts don't really hold up to Euro stouts.

BTW I'm trying to track down the Purple Haze vodka and the Frank Zappa beer if anyone can help with that

I'm in full on Spring beers mode right now.  Really enjoying Philadelphia Brewing Co's offerings, especially the Walt Wit and the Fleur de Lehigh.  Rogue Mom Hefe is pretty good too.

Philly has been in front of the beer resurgence in the US for a few years, and it's just so nice to live here as a beer fan.  It seems like every bar that opens now knows that they have to have a great selection of craft beers to make it.

Philly hasn't been in front of the beer resurgence at all. Portland started the entire microbrewery movement a couple decades ago, and we still have the largest variety of craft and microbrews to choose from in the country. Get the facts here: http://oregonbeer.org/facts/
Quote
• Oregon is the second largest producer of craft beer in the US. 1 [presumably the top would be California, which makes sense given the population]
• Oregon is the 4th largest craft beer market in the US in supermarket sales.2
• 37% Percent of all draft beer consumed in Oregon is brewed in Oregon. 1
• Oregon has the 4th highest percentage of beer draft sales in the US.2
• Oregonians consumed 2.72 million barrels of beer in 2008, of that more than 327,000 barrels were made in Oregon or about 12 percent of the total beer consumed in Oregon - the highest percentage of local craft beer consumption in the country.1,3
• Oregon is the No. 2 hop growing state in the country with a 2008 crop value of $38,000,000 which ranks 18th in Oregon’s five billion dollar agricultural economy. 4
• There are currently 73 brewing companies, operating 96 brewing facilities in Oregon.1
• There are 30 breweries operating in Portland, more than any other city in the world. 1
• The Portland metro area has 38 breweries, more than any other metro area in the US. 1
• The Portland metro area is the largest craft brewing market in the US.2
• The national average for total craft beer consumption by volume is 4.0 percent. 2

Yeah, suck it Philly. They don't call Portland Beervana for nothin'. Hell, even that Rogue beer you're drinking? That's an Oregon beer.

Yeah, I didn't quite mean it like that.  I meant that good beer has been popular for several years here, instead of just the past year or two.

Philly though can hold it's own with Portland for overall options though too.  (especially if you stretch to the surrounding areas).  We've got Victory, PBC, Yards and Sly Fox in the immediate city area.  Weyerbacher and Dogfish Head close by along with Flying Fish.

Also, the Belgium beer options here are the best in the country.  Portland may be a bigger overall craft market, but there is no way they can compete with the import options here.

It is possible for there to be two good beer cities......

Hey, you just said that Philly was in front of the beer resurgence the past few years. I don't how else you could've meant it. Regardless, I don't know about the Belgian beer options... I'm pretty sure we import a hell of a lot more of that as well. I've gone to several bars in town that offer at least 3 Belgian selections on draught. Here's an example of a really good beer store in town's selection:

http://www.belmont-station.com/bottlealpha.html

This is a city that's absolutely OBSESSED with beer. I don't know of anywhere else in the country that you can go to any ol' gas station or 7-11 or whatever that has at least a window or so full of micros alone to choose from in their beer section. Definitely give you guys the edge in Dogfish Head over Rogue, though.

I meant time wise, not necessaryily leading the way.  I would put Portland, Philly, and probably Boston as places that seemed to be ahead of the times.  Portland definitely lead the craft revolution that's going on (with the exception of Anchor Steam, obv.)  The majority of big cities seem to just now be picking up on good beer.

I'm always surprised that nearly every bar I've been to abroad stocks Newcastle Brown Ale, I'm not sure if thats because there's Geordies (people from Newcastle) everywhere or if its actually liked outside of Newcastle. Personally, I only drink one bottle of it a year, as I think it taste's like dog muck.

Maine's got a surprisingly good craft brewing scene. I could probably tell you more but I'm still mostly stuck in my cheap beer stage.

But hey---the bar down the street from my house is on of America's Best Beer Bars according to Forbes Traveler!

When I want something a bit fancier than the usual PBRs and Steel Reserve- I usually grab Long Trail Ale, which is a Vermont beer (an altbier to be specific---thanks Wikipedia).

Maine's got a good beer scene because of your proximity to Vermont, which is the Mecca of beer brewers thanks to the American Brewer's Guild school being located there in Salisbury. That's where a lot of great microbrewers have gone to learn their craft.

What's everyone's feelings on Green Flash?  I found the West Coast IPA to be a little over rated (might have just heard too many people raving and built to high expectations, but I thought it to be a little blaring and harsh in bottle form (better on draft)).  However, Hop Head Red I loved.  Just tasted some over the weekend and thought it to be near perfect.

I have a new fav brew.  It's called an Eclipse and is mixed like a black n tan (Guiness & Bass ale)

It is, Blue Moon & Guiness,

You basically get a beer glass/mug, pour it 3/4 full with Blue Moon, and then pour in Guiness over the back of a spoon, and the Guiness sits on top of the Blue Moon.  Gooooood stuff.

Swung by Whole Foods the other night and grabbed a six of Great Divide Samurai Rice Ale, along with a six of Peak Organic Nut Brown Ale.  Picked up the rice ale mostly as a novelty, and it's nothing too special, but is a pretty flavorful blonde for how light it is.  I drink Peak Brown like it's water, and recommend it highly to anyone who puts Newcastle or Brooklyn Brown in their rotation.  I think it beats the daylights out of both of them, and I even like both of those.

I generally don't care for beers that are in any way connected to fruit, but I really like the Sam Adams Blackberry Witbier.  This is doubly surprising since I normally find most Sam Adams products to range from completely average to wholly bleh.  Superb way to start off a barbecue.

So this holiday season, I thought I'd curb my drinking by buying good, more expensive beer instead of the PBR I like to swill at school but I failed to realize that a lot of the nicer beers have double the alcohol content than the crap I'm used to drinking! Least I'm getting drunk in style.

Frank Zappa Beer!!

I am in the process of trying to track this down now...

I have the 'Kill Ugly Radio' 'We're Only In It For the Money' and 'Lumpy Gravy' bottles.  From what I remember the beer wasn't anything special, and I'm not really a fan of Lagunitas brews for the price they get, but it was worth it as a collectors item.  And yeah, I was aware of the irony of a devout non-drinker like Zappa having beer bottled in his honour

My 2 beers of choice are PBR as the cheap 'drink it like it's water' brew, and Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA when I want something more substantial.  Dogfish Head is a Delaware brewery that makes some great beers, I don't know if people can find it outside of the Northeast though.  6 packs run about 11-12 bucks round here, but it's well worth it.

I also recommend a Western Mass brewing company, BBC, they sell 22oz bottles and 64oz growlers and have a pair of great ales among other things.  You can find their beers all across the state, some bars in Boston have them on tap, and I've also seen it in Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, upstate NY and even a bar in NYC.  I don't think it's available outside of the North East yet, but they've grown quite a bit in the last 5-10 years and I would assume will eventually become available at specialty liquor stores in other states.

Can't to sleep so I'm busting out a nice Allagash Trippel bomber, which I'd hoped to bust out for a semi-special occasion (...or Tuesday's We Watch Shitty Wrestling meeting). It's the only beer/alcohol in my house right now.

I'm in my defense, I've had a grand total of six or so beers this weekend. Only one of which was during a mildly traumatizing night yesterday*.  I deserve this.

Speaking of last night, who knew that IHOP served beer? Not very good but it's there!

*Had nothing to do with my hilarious bad posting last night but a quasi triple date that a friend set up. Needless to say, nobody ended up getting laid!

In Miami Beach, one entrepreneur wants you to “have it your way” by enjoying a frosty cold one with your Whopper and fries. (For a mere $7.99.) It’s part of a new Burger King attempt to reinvent the fast-food restaurant’s look and feel.

The restaurant will be called the “Whopper Bar South Beach” which, to me, sounds a little hokey. But maybe the name will work just fine in Florida.

The long-term goal is to make people want to hang out in their local Burger King. Beer is a good way to motivate people, especially the coveted 21 to 30-year-old male market share. In other countries, like Germany, fast food joints have been offering cans of beer with burgers for over a decade. But here in the U.S., very few fast food restaurants offer alcoholic beverages.

Optimator is a great beer. I usually get to have it draught about 3 times a year in the Natty.

I pounded Sea Dog Blueberry Ale and Sam Adams Coastal Wheat for the past six days. Both are damn good. I was surprised the Sam Adams was good since most of their beers aren't great to me.

I didn't like that Sam Adams wheat at all, but I'm not a huge fan of them in general.

Best wheat I've had is probably New Belgium's Mothership Wit.



Nice grainy quality; plenty of spices and citrus.

Only New Belgium beer I've had is Fat Tire and it was no good. Same sort of flavorless bunk as Magic Hat's #9.
