They actually sell Laughing Buddha at a Chinese place in my hometown. It was okay but I think just about everyone is buying it for the bottle haha.

I like the Sam Adams RebelIPA if I'm low on options, I've never seen the Porch Rocker though.

Love your current mood! Beer has a way of creeping into your mind and then hanging out. I only made this thread because I saw someone mention Sculpin in a different thread and it was all beer in my head from then on out.

All of you west coasters... Shoot they are even in Chicago.. Union Jack is an IPA by Firestone Walker out of California... Forgot to mention it early... Hands down the best IPA iv ever had in my mouf . Actually all of their beers are great but especially the IPA... Ray Daniels himself told me they are making some of the best IPA in the world.. And he was right... Or maybe I was just star struck and willing to believe anything he told me..

Whenever I have friends travels south I have them grab me some Firestone Walker.. Used to be 3 Floyds..

Btw Ray Daniels writes technical brewing books and wrote the BJCP style guidelines ...

IMHO Rebel IPA is great for the price.

Actually many Sam Adams brews are really great ... Assuming you want something within the lines... When they branch out not always so much.. Sam Adams Noble Pils is a real treat on a summer day..

If you ever visit Anchorage, AK there is a good chance you will find me holding court at the Glacier Brewhouse. Their IPA is my go-to beer after trying the other new items. You can't find it in bottles because they do not bottle their beer. They also serve it "English style" (cask conditioned, dry hopped, slightly warm, hand pumped) which is a delight.

And if, by some random assignment, you are up here during January (most people cower in terror about being in Alaska in winter time! Hehe) there is The Great Alaska Beer and Barleywine Festival. It is a ton of fun. Crowded, GIs puking in the trash cans, lots of people watching, etc. Absolute chaos! But the beer is great.

The chances are the beer you will find in lower 48 (that is what we refer to ya'll as) is Alaskan Brewery and their Amber ale which is a golden kolsch style (malty, not hoppy).

S+F


And Quantum12, we will drink a Red Horse on the moon while it is still vibrating for 333 seconds! The next day we ski down Crater 8 and we'll have a couple more!

Ghost in the machine is an amazing double ipa from parish brewing down in Louisiana.

Welcome to the future. Our collective human consciousness, or Ghost in the Machine, has gained a tolerance for hops beyond what mankind has ever known before. This double India Pale Ale is the necessary outcome.

Unfortunately they only make a little bit and most kegs show up at a bar with no warning and is sold out in six hours. If you ever see one but it and enjoy it.

All Beer tastes disgusting. I have tried dozens of micro brews and all the commercial stuff. All nasty.

With that said I just buy Keystone Ice in cans. Made by Coors (says it right on the can), same taste as Coors, but $7 less on a 30 pack in my area.

Gets me by when I don't have a bottle of Vodka to work on.

If you ever hit the Manhattan, KS, area, check out some of the stuff from Tallgrass Brewery. I'm partial to their stout for drinking ... cooking ... drinking. But they do more than that.

Ah man! BZ I will hoist one for you at the pub! We should all come back each Friday and share any strange and wondrous finds.

You need to make the pilgrimage to Sierra Nevada Brewing Company. They are the ones that saved this style of beer. When I was in NYC I was trying different brewhouses but none really compared to the Left Coast. I went to an arcade that had a bar on top floor. They had SN and Rouge (yet another place to visit). I felt very comfortable drinking those. They reminded me of home. The bartender said nobody orders those to which I chuckled. Drank their last Shakespeare stout too!

I am out in 5! Enjoy!

Thanks for the tip on the Lagunitas tour! I knew they were in my neighborhood, but now they're on my to-do list!

Drakes Denogginizer sounds amazing, and I've love to try it some day, which I will, but I have an odd relationship with IPAs. I absolutely LOVE the taste of IPAs, the hoppier the better, BUT, they absolutely kick my (butt!) Not the alcohol, the hops. 1 or 2 IPAs and I'm done for the night. The herbal sleepy properties of the hops FAR outweigh the alcohol. I quickly grow too tired to drink anymore and just want to go relax in quiet for a couple hours then fall asleep. I'll wake up in the morning with a "fuzzy" head. Not like a hangover, more like someone switched my morning coffee with decaf spiked with Xanax. I've learned a potent IPA is something I should consume on a lazy day, and in a hammock - the big-hole net kind, so the drool can fall right through to the ground.

As for my recommendations, many of my favorites have been what i think of as "rarities" - I like to pick up something different on occasion, but rarely seek the same lesser-known, not widely available beers. I don't want to grow too attached to a beer I may not find again, and there's so much variety that I always want to try something new. I do have my standbys which represent probably 80% of my beer consumption (which isn't much this decade, as I have a 2 yr old and a 4 yr old.) Nonetheless, I present my two mainstays:

From my hometown, the great and bloodthirsty seat of the most corrupt county in the Western Hemisphere and home of the almighty Cubs, Chicago, IL, I present to you, Gooooooose Island!!

Goose Island is now owned by Anheuser-Busch/InBev, yet they have not ruined the product.

Goose Island's Matilda is a strong and bright Pale Ale, full-bodied but not too heavy

BEER INFO 

Brewed by: 
Goose Island Beer Co. 
Illinois, United States | website

Style: Belgian Strong Pale Ale 

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00% 

Availability: Year-round 

Notes / Commercial Description: 
Golden sunrise color, baking spice aroma, fruity biscuity malt flavor, dry body. 



AND...

Goose Island's 312 American Wheat Pale Ale. This is my summertime, on the deck or by the grill standby. Not as potent in alcohol or as robust in flavor as Matilda, but it has a really crisp, fresh and bright flavor, with just a hint of citrus notes and nice staying power to the flavor, helped by it being unfiltered, though not with too much "mouth feel" (for my taste) as with some unfiltered wheat brews.

Sappro from Japan is some good beer,saw some at a package store,should have bought it.Chimas is really good and strong,9%,Werewolf is really good if you can find it.Tried a crazy brewski but didn`t care much for it,the alcohol overpowered the flavor,IIRC it was 15%.Sierra Nevada is really good-all varieties I`ve tried.If you like pretzals with your brew try Shocktop Twisted Pretzal,I love this one.Does anyone know what Mexican beer has a train on the label?We used to get those in Tijuana and as I remember they were very good.Think I had Red Horse in the Phillipines but those memories are rather hazy,lol.Theres a lot of good beer now,sure better than when I was a young guy back in the &0`s and 80`s.

So there I was, sitting at the end of the bar watching a baseball game. I had a couple hefeweizens as it was a warm day (for us in the AK anything above 75 °F is considered warm). So the bar to the right of me was cleared off so the bartenders could land drinks for the servers on that side of the bar. You are not supposed to stand there. Of course, "Look honey! There's a spot!" always happens until the realization comes, "Uh, I don't think this is a spot". So a couple of those come and go. Then I talk to a couple servers while they waited for their orders. They leave. I look down and see a wad of folded twenties lying there! So I hand them to the bartender in case somebody comes back or one of the servers is missing anything. An hour later, the bartender is going off shift and hands me the bar mop he wrapped around it. I take the wad and order another IPA!

Best beer in the world is free beer! Went home with more money than I started with and a belly full of beer. Ended up being about 180 bucks (minus what I paid out). I have beer money for the rest of the week!
