    I'm easily pleased, i like Becks, although only if served real cold, it has a nice taste as it goes down the throat. ( might be lager )

    Okay well another i like which is a beer brewed in Scotland, it's called Broughton's Greenmantle Ale.

    Love imported beers from Europe, Australia, Japan, etc.

    Won't even touch American beers, they're awful. Almost like drinking a 50/50 split between beer and water, pathetic.

    I am a fan of several of Sam Adams seasonal brews, including the Summer Ale, Octoberfest, and Winter Lager. Their Christmas Ale is very good, too -- my niece gave some to me for Christmas, bless her.

    I just came from a hockey game where I had a Bell's Winter White Ale. :wub: Bell's in a microbrewery in Kalamazoo, Michigan that has some great beers. Their summer Oberon brew is quite popular around here.

    I'm not a huge fan of amber/red ales but I gotta say the Evil Dead Red by AleSmith brewing is quite delish. Very well balanced and a bit heavier than your average red ale. It came out during Halloween and I haven't seen it since. If you're of fan of this type ale try and find some.

    I saw on some TV program on beer that American beers were geared for a hotter climate and for more thirst-quenching than flavor. The ultra light beers like Michelob Ultra qualify as 'near-beers' at best IMO and are made for people who don't really like beer. I like hoppy ale type beers myself, mainly IPAs. I particularly like Sierra Nevada Torpedo IPA, though I am open to others.

    The Lost Abbey is producing some fine mock Belgians. Red Barn is a spicy golden strong. At a modest 6.7% (for a Belgian) it a great bargain at $6.89 a bomber.

    @ Sam's Club. Unfortunately, this is the only offering so far from The Lost Abbey available there. Bevmo carries their whole line. They are mimicking Belgians much like Canada's Unibroue but more complex. You will have to dig deeper into the pockets also

    Holy hell....more than a year?

    Went to Wise Guys liquor store in Merrillville, IN.

    Liquor porn.

    Picked up some...

    Horny Goat chocolate peanut butter porter.

    Go get some, you must.


    Dragon's Milk

    Worth every expensive penny.

    This is a thread which, historically, has gone through fits and starts...


    Time for a revival! :thumbsup:

    I have a bottle of that in my beer fridge, courtesy of my cousin's husband, who loves the stuff. It is served on draft at our local Irish pub, which is managed by said cousin's son.


    This winter my wife and I both really enjoyed Perrin's Kona Brown, a dark coffee flavored ale. Perrin is a Vermont-based microbrewery. Another winter favorite was Atwater's Vanilla Java Porter.

    I went to the AC Beer fest this weekend and tried more things than I can remember, and only 3 are worth remembering:


    Crabby's Orange Ginger Beer, highly recommended.

    Zombie Killer Mead. Good stuff

    Iron Maiden's Trooper, been waiting for this for a while, was great!

    I had never been much of a beer fan until my younger brother turned 21. Once he did I started trying a lot more types of beer. My cousin happens to be the family expert on the subject and started bringing over lots of different beers as well. I found out I don't really like heavy hop beers and tend to lean towards beers with fruit or wheat ingredients. My favorite beer at the moment is leinenkugel's berry weiss. Do enjoy a Purple Haze from time to time as well.

    New Holland(Holland, MI) is on my radar. Good brews(more than just DM).

    Fans of Saison/Farmhouse, find some Goose Island Sofie.

    A-B has done that for years. Usually at the breweries closest to flooding.

    Coors offered in the past, but they don't have facilities to pasteurize water...so it can't "sit" as long as A-B. Nestle(PureLife) doesn't pasteurize either.
