The Beer Thread!
« on: Sun, 24 March 2013, 19:54:16 »
I just cracked a Ninkasi Tricerahops DIPA and the peach hop aroma was so powerful I was inspired to create this thread.


Post you favorite brews, ones you've tried and maybe get some recommendations on beers to look out for!


Maybe we can even get a few trades going?




So post your:


Hop bombs!



Barrel aged/ cellared goodness!



Tastings!

That's what I was going to get (Boulevard Double-Wide IPA), but instead I won the idiot of the day award. For whatever reason, this thread had me convinced today was Saturday, but its Sunday meaning I cannot get beer! I actually drove to two places before I put it together lol. All of this is making me reappreciate living in Pittsburgh for undergrad, which is where I started drinking beer lol.

Whatever, I'm gonna go open a bottle of Shiraz lol

Some recent things...

Oud Bruin Brouwer's Verzet

Nice sour, kind of hard to find.
http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/verzet-oud-bruin-experimenteel-bier/151578/

Bockor Cuvee des Jacobins Rouge

Pretty common in sour circles, but one of my all time fav sours. Special glass FTW.
http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/bockor-cuvee-des-jacobins-rouge/108863/

Préaris Quadrupel

Underrated to me, this is an excellent quad. I prefer them a tad dry (for the style anyway) and this is right on the money.

You there, fellow Coloradoan! How do you like Great Divide's stuff? I just had some of the Titan IPA earlier today, and I'm always a big fan of their Hibernation Ale. Unrelated, I have a bottle of O'Dell's Friek in the fridge... been waiting for a good time to crack that one open.

My last beer of the weekend...by one of my favorite American breweries!  Sixpoint's Resin



Normally, I go for beer with a substantially heavier malt profile (doppelbocks, quadrupels, etc), but there is nothing like a good IPA to get things in gear for the following week :)

Yes!  It's a phenomenally interesting and complex brew- shame you don't have it out there.  Does Sixpoint not have distribution where you live?

Just curious, do you have the Chimay Speciale Cent Cinquante over by you?

What I'm drinking right now:



Completely mediocre and I wouldn't recommend to someone looking for a good beer.  If you want a good Belgian white that's not too hard to find, check out the Avery White Rascal. One of my favorite breweries and one of my favorite summer beers.

What I had last night:



Not my favorite, but definitely an interesting beer.  I prefer my porters smokier instead of hoppier with strong caramel malts.

One of my favorite beers of late:



Awesome off the tap, unfortunately it was a limited release beer.  It's by far one of the most accessible sours I've ever had.

Other awesome recent beers include several from Drake's brewing:





By far my favorite IPA is the Avery Maharajah:



I gravitate toward citrusy (especially grapefruity) IPAs and the Maharajah delivers that.  I'm always looking for others that are citrusy, herbal, or spicy.  A little pine is okay, but I am not a fan of the dank ones.  If I wanted something that tasted like marijuana, I'd cook with cannabutter.

Then there's the Belgians, Stouts, Porters, Sours, and slew of other awesome IPAs.  Unfortunately, I can't get many of the awesome IPAs I used to since I left Seattle.  At least now I can get some Drake's, by far one of my favorites out there along with Avery and Unibroue.

midmarch trend:







(...)Whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. The first group, by making you do the same thing over and over again. The second group is indicated by the letters I get from the Vassar girls who want me to put more women's lib in The Martian Chronicles, or from blacks who want more black people in Dandelion Wine.
I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is b.s.

No distro in Cali AFAIK, I'll be on the look out for that Chimay though and if I manage to snag a couple maybe a trade is in order?

I haven't.  The places near me that have Drake's only have some of their year round stuff and the Jolly Roger and Denogginizer right now.  They don't always seem to have all the seasonal Drake's stuff, so I hope they get it.  They do have a lot of mediocre local stuff like Cismontane and Bayhawk and some other mediocre to average California stuff like Hangar 24 and Karl Strauss.

I have a fantastic place two streets away from home:



They have tons of differents beers separated by brand and region. They also have labels describing the type of beer and alcohol degrees. This is the shop where I buy all my beers and you can even taste them there.

It's a really cool place to find a lot of beers but unfortunately they don't have Apenzeller bier  :-X Those from Switzerland will know this beers and they taste amazing: Appenzeller Bier

I was in their factory and had the chance to see it and buy directly from them in there.

My mum went to Paris last month  and she brought me some beers like this one:



They tasted really good but nothing strong.

And I like to drink that one when playing Chivalry: Medieval Warfare just because it has an archer in the label  ;D



Also this one with mango is good too:


In fact I love beer too much  :p

Do you have any specialized shop out there in your local area?

Eww, that tap would contaminate every beer you had.  Keep the beers on separate taps please.

And tonight's beer, Flying Dog Imperial Porter. Definitely a beer I could recommend.

(...)Whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. The first group, by making you do the same thing over and over again. The second group is indicated by the letters I get from the Vassar girls who want me to put more women's lib in The Martian Chronicles, or from blacks who want more black people in Dandelion Wine.
I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is b.s.
