    I don't care how wrong FORD might be with his political views, that is "might be", this thread is dedicated to the KING BEER.

    You sound like a moron anyway.

    5.2% does sound like Belgian lite, have you tried Guinness from Belgian?

    Well.... now that Labor Day has come and gone, it's time for Oktoberfest beers to make the rounds again.

    Old World Oktoberfest German Originations

    In 1810, when Princess Therese was married to the Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig, the festival began as a wedding celebration. In a meadow adjacent to Munich, as part of the wedding entertainment, a horse race was staged for 40,000 enthusiasts from all over Bavaria. The purpose of the celebration was two-fold:

    * First, to give thanks to the Lord for the past years crops and other blessings.

    * Second, to share in the joy of the occasion with the family in the spirit of true love.
    source:http://www.oktoberfestusa.com/history.htm

    Beer, God, and love eh? OK, those sound like good enough reasons to me. I'll drink to that :bottle:

    ----------------------------------------

    Accordingly then, here's our first Oktoberfest entry, from our friends at the Widmer Brothers in Portland Oregon......






    In the grand tradition of Bavarian Oktoberfest, we proudly present OKTO. This full bodied amber ale with distinctive Malt flavors and a crisp, clean finish is our Northwest interpretation of the classic festival ale. Celebrate the season of beer.

    FORD's review: It's been my experience that Widmer is the weakest link among NorthWest micro breweries. I'd drink the shit over Bud, Miller, or Coors any day, but compared to Deschutes, Red Hook, Pyramid, or my own neighborhood Fish Brewery, they just fall short. Tragically, this OKTO doesn't change my mind any. Good average ale, but nothing really special, I'm afraid.

    FORD's rating : 1/2

    Winter Beers are back early this year..... Picked up the Frambozen tonight, and I saw the Sam Adams Holiday pack at Costco earlier this week. Passed on it though, because there's still no Old Fezziwig in the damn thing.....

    If anybody sees any Oktoberfest or Winter beers I haven't reviewed yet, let me know!

    New Belgium welcomes the Holidays each year with the release of Frambozen, a brown ale fermented with Northwest raspberries. Frambozen, Flemish for raspberry, is a little more than 11% fruit by volume. Brewer Bill Hepp traveled to Oregon this year to oversee the selection and shipment process. He describes the first moment he experienced this year’s harvest.

    “The room was redolent with the thick, summery aroma of fresh, red raspberries,” Bill recalls. “I opened the drum, untied the plastic liner, and scooped out a handful. Putting a few in my mouth, I could tell immediately that this was going to be an excellent year for Frambozen.”

    An exceptionally warm growing season made for sweet fruits with a pleasantly tart finish. The final Frambozen weighs in at 7.0% ABV. Bill compares the finished beer with one of life’s guilty pleasures.

    “Drinking Frambozen is like stomping on the gas of a vintage El Camino,” says Hepp. “It’s a delightful, powerful beer with a style and class all its own.”

    Seeing as Bill rides his bike to work throughout the winter, we assume he’s speaking metaphorically.

    Frambozen will be available throughout our distribution area October through January. Hop in the El Camino (or better yet, grab your bike) and go out and get you some.


    Finished Product Information:
    Alcohol: 7.0%
    IBU: 16
    Hops and Spices: Magnum, raspberries
    Malts: Pale, Chocolate, Carapils, C-40, C-80, Munich


    FORD's review: Usually I don't go out of my way to drink fruit flavored beers, but New Belgium puts out some intesting shit, and I'll drink any winter beer at least once.

    This ale probably falls about half way between something like Widmer's Blackberry Heffeweisen and the above mentioned Sam Adams Cranberry Lambic in terms of the "fruity" flavor taking over the beer. It's a good medium, with the sweetness definitely present, but tasting more like a Belgian ale than champagne (as the Adams product does). No surprise there since it comes from a "Belgian" brewer.

    This one would probably go great with your upcoming Turkey Day meal

    I'll give it a 1/2

    I could use some help from you beer guys.

    I went to an Octoberfest bash a few weeks back and had some great German imported beir.

    One was exceptionally good. It started with "Franken" something something, I think.

    It was kind of sweet tasting. Any idea?

    I'm seeing a "Franken" beer online, and it's a German beer that apparently just made distribution deals for the EU, but I couldn't find anything on a US distributor.

    I have a local source here that sometimes gets the German imports in, but they only sell them by single bottles, and pricey at that. So that's one thing to buy a treat for yourself, but it would be big bucks to buy enough for a party.

    Any chance you can find out from who ever was throwing the Oktoberfest party, and ask them how they got the beer?

    Yeah, I'm going to call him up because I really liked it. . It was funny because I kept trying to memorize the name but the more I drank...the tougher it got.

    The next day all I could remember was "franken...."

    SNOW CAP ALE IS BACK IN THE MOTHERFUCKING HIZZOUSE!!!!



    Brand new label, same kick ass winter beer. As I've said in previous reviews this is the standard by which I judge all other winter brews. And I haven't found one that beats it yet.....

    I saw this in Safeway tonight and picked it up. I enjoyed it, first "fruity" beer that I've tried that I liked, it wasn't really sweet at all, like you said, kinda in-between. Some sweet fruit aftertaste, but not too much at all. It was steep (10 bucks I think), but Safeway is high as hell anyway, but they have the best selection in this little town by far.

    10 bucks? Damn, I thought it was bad here. Most decent beer at Safeway here is between 7.00 - 8.00 anymore. And then there's the harder to find stuff which might run me up to $10 for a six pack.

    Tonight I'm drinking Widmer Snow Plow, but I'm so unimpressed with it, I'm not even bothering with a formal review.

    Everything around here is higher, including beer. I'm not sure if their prices are set right though at the Safeway, buy a six pack of Heiny for about 8-9 bucks, and a 12 pack is 12, makes no sense.

    I could probably find it cheaper, but it's right there, probably what they are banking on.

    Thanks for the review on it, no way I woulda got it if I hadn't seen that, I remembered when I saw it.

    "Hops Are to Beer What Grapes Are to Wine"

    The Boston Beer Company Introduces Samuel Adams(r) Imperial Pilsner 2005 Harvest, a Limited-Edition Beer Brewed with an Abundance of Hallertau Mittelfrueh Hops, in Celebration of the Fall Hops Harvest

    Boston, MA, October 2005- Throughout history, people have celebrated the bountiful harvest with ceremonies and festivals. This year is no different as Samuel Adams celebrates the fall hops harvest with the introduction of Samuel Adams(r) Imperial Pilsner 2005 Harvest. This one-of-a-kind brew uses enormous, almost reckless, quantities of Hallertau Mittelfrueh hops selected fresh from this year's Bavarian hops harvest, giving the beer an unmatched flavor dimension and complexity.

    Every autumn for the last twenty years, Jim Koch, Founder of The Boston Beer Company, Brewer of Samuel Adams beers, travels to one of the oldest hops growing regions of the world, the Hallertau region of Bavaria in Germany, to hand-select Noble hops.

    "Samuel Adams has always taken pride in using the world's finest ingredients, and Samuel Adams Imperial Pilsner 2005 Harvest takes that commitment to the next level," said Koch. "Beer enthusiasts will experience the taste of hops right off the vine, and how an abundance of Noble hops can enhance the flavor and intensity of a beer."

    With the first sip, beer enthusiasts will experience an explosion of the Hallertau Mittelfrueh hops. This rare hops variety, considered to be one of the best in the world, is prized for its quality and aromatic characteristics. The intensity of deep citrus, spicy Noble hops flavor, is balanced with the slight sweetness from the malt. Due to the quality of the hops, this beer remains balanced and smoothly drinkable. The lingering "hops signature" is an amazing treat for hops lovers. The beer, which has a deep golden color and a rich, creamy head, gives off an intense and complex Noble hops aroma, very similar to what Jim experiences when he rubs the hops together in his hands during hops selection, to release the essence of the hops flowers.

    The world's finest ingredients are considered the Holy Grail to Jim Koch. "While many brewers just sniff the hops, he 'dives' into them," said Stefan Stanglmair, a German hops farmer. Jim involves himself in every aspect of the development of a new beer, from the ingredient selection to the brewing. He tastes each batch brewed, to ensure it meets his high standards of quality. As with all Samuel Adams beers, each batch of Samuel Adams Imperial Pilsner 2005 Harvest is brewed one at a time with handcrafted care and precision.

    Samuel Adams Imperial Pilsner 2005 Harvest is a robust, flavorful beer. It stands up well to creamy dishes such as beef stroganoff, grilled steak smothered with a thick mushroom sauce, or a traditional Tuscan style roast meat, such as Osso Bucco. It also pairs well with pungent, creamy cheeses, such as Brie or Camembert. Chef David Burke of Davidburke & Donatella Restaurant in New York City recommends Lobster Firecrackers with Samuel Adams Imperial Pilsner 2005 Harvest Lemon Sabayon (recipes available upon request).

    Samuel Adams Imperial Pilsner 2005 Harvest will be available in select specialty beer stores beginning in November 2005, for a suggested retail price of $4.99. The beer is packaged in a 24 oz. bottle, featuring a beautiful label that captures an artistic rendering of a farmer hand selecting the Bavarian hops from the harvest.

    ABOUT HALLERTAU MITTELFRUEH HOPS:
    Hallertau Mittelfrueh hops, one of the five types of Bavarian Noble hops, are considered to be one of the best hops varieties in the world, and are prized for their quality flavor and aromatic characteristics. These special hops are grown only in the Hallertau region in Bavaria, where there are only a few thousand acres of hops-growing land that provide the perfect soil and climate for growing Hallertau Mittelfrueh hops. These hops are considered to be among the world's finest and most expensive. Because these hops are difficult to grow and vulnerable to disease, many German hops farmers stopped growing the variety about a decade ago. The total acreage for Hallertau Mittelfrueh declined to less than 400 acres. Insistent on using only the best ingredients for their beers, Jim Koch and the Samuel Adams brewers worked with hop dealers and farmers to save the variety. Partially in recognition of his efforts to keep this variety from extinction, the International Hop Growers Association honored Jim Koch with this year's prestigious "Order of the Hops" award and naming him a Knight to the Order of the Hop Society, an organization dating back to 1371.

    THE BOSTON BEER COMPANY BACKGROUND:
    The Boston Beer Company is America's leading brewer of handcrafted, full-flavored beers. Founder and Brewer, Jim Koch, brews Samuel Adams beers using the time-honored, traditional four-vessel brewing process, and the world's finest all-natural ingredients. With 18 distinctive, award-winning styles of beer, Samuel Adams offers discerning beer drinkers a variety of brews. The brewery has won more awards in international beer-tasting competitions in the last five years than any other brewery in the world.

    SAMUEL ADAMS IMPERIAL PILSNER 2005 HARVEST
    FACT SHEET

    THE BEER:
    For the first time, Samuel Adams is celebrating the fall hops harvest with the introduction of Samuel Adams(r) Imperial Pilsner 2005 Harvest. This is the first beer to reach market using this year's Bavarian hops crop. This one-of-a-kind brew uses enormous, almost reckless, quantities of Hallertau Mittelfrueh hops selected fresh from this year's Bavarian hops harvest, making it one of the "hoppiest" beers in the world. The quality of these hops give the beer an unmatched flavor dimension and complexity and drinkability, even at these elevated BU (bitterness unit) levels.

    THE VISION:
    Every fall, Jim Koch, Founder of the Boston Beer Company, Brewer of Samuel Adams beers and his team of brewers travel to one of the oldest hops-growing regions of the world, the Hallertau region of Bavaria in Germany, to hand-select Noble hops. The vision for Samuel Adams Imperial Pilsner 2005 Harvest was to brew a beer that immediately uses the hops freshly picked off the vine from the current 2005 harvest.

    THE TASTE:
    Samuel Adams Imperial Pilsner 2005 is made with the four classic ingredients of beer: hops, malt, yeast and water. With the first sip, beer enthusiasts will experience an explosion of the Hallertau Mittelfrueh hops flavor. This rare hop variety, considered to be one of the best in the world, is prized for its quality and aromatic characteristics. The intensity of deep citrus, spicy Noble hops flavor is balanced with the slight sweetness from the malt. Due to the quality of the hops, this beer remains balanced and smoothly drinkable. The lingering "hop signature" is an amazing treat for hops lovers. The beer, which is a deep golden color with a rich, creamy head, gives off an intense and complex Noble hops aroma unlike any other brew.

    THE BOTTLE:
    Samuel Adams Imperial Pilsner 2005 Harvest is packaged in a 24 oz. bottle featuring a beautiful label with an artistic rendering of a farmer hand selecting the Bavarian hops from the harvest. The suggested retail price is $4.99.

    I just picked this up at the local beer store. One of my cronies held this on special for me, they only received four of these babies.

    I'm looking forward to drinking this, but I might save it for Thanksgiving. I post my own review then...

    Sounds like this one's a limited run, so I probably won't see it out on this coast

    I'm hoping Sam Adams sends the Old Fezziwig or Cranberry Lambic out this way though. The Cranberry would be perfect for Turkey Day.

    Been cutting back on the beer anyway though, so it's probably just as well.....

    Yeah, they got the holiday packs at Costco here. I might break down and buy one if I can't find a full 6 pack of the real thing. I just hate paying for a multi-pack that has fucking "lite beer" in it.

    Nope, no more lite beer this year. I think it's been replaced with the "Black Lager." At least here it has...

    Oh man. See, this October I had one huge German beer drinking party. Filled up on the ol' Spaten and some Beck's Oktoberfest. And, of course, some wursts and pork. And, of course, after doing so, I decided that no matter what time of the yr, I was having an Oktoberfest reception. I mean, hell, it started as a wedding reception to being with.

    I'm such a dork, I know.

    I could have sworn it was the same mix as last year. Oh well... I'll probably hit Costco later in the week, so I'll check it out.

    What's the "Black Lager"??

    Drank some of the "Winter Lager" last night. Not bad, as lager goes, but I couldn't make out exactly what "spices" were in it.

    When one sees a beer with a darker complexion these days, more often than not it’s a Porter or Stout. However looks can be deceiving. There exists a style older than both and generally less well known; the Schwarzbier, which literally translated is “Black Beer.” Unlike its dark cousins which both hail from Britain and are highly hopped ales, Schwarzbier comes from Germany, is lightly hopped and is fermented using a bottom fermenting lager yeast. Samuel Adams® Black Lager is brewed in the tradition of the latter. A medium bodied beer brewed using several different roasts of malt to give the end product a smooth body and a depth of malt character that has to be tasted to be believed.
    Carafa® is a registered trademark of Weyermann Malt, Bamburg, Germany.
    It's not bad, a very hearty "Gunniess" style beer...

    Our Summerfest is a refreshing, pilsner-style lager. Its incredible smoothness comes from an extra-long lagering period. Lighter in body than our ales but just as complex in character, Summerfest quenches your thirst with big aroma and a tangy hop bite.

    Hell, I always get into political discussions when I'm drunk. Probably half the political discussions on this board are no exception, though I don't drink so much anymore.

    Then I guess y'all will stay away from Molson and Labatt?

    Is the "Black Label" still around?

    I remember in the 80', they made such a huge campain that cool punk rockers had to drink it and eaven if apparently it tasted like piss, everyone DID. drink it.
    I (who hates beer) eaven orederd it just to hold it in my hands and "look" cool...

    What publicity can do to a "fashion victim" teenager!

    Now the guys have to drink a fine Scotch or a designer beer to be hip...
    Girls go with Martinis and Cosmos...

    Cool Welcome to Winter Beer season 2006!

    Our first winter beer entry for the season comes from the Anderson Valley Brewing Company of Mendicino California, brewers of the damn fine "Barney Flatts Oatmeal Stout" and "Hop Ottin IPA"



    Winter Solstice Seasonal Ale
    is going fast. If you See it, Buy it! There won't be any more until next winter.

    This fine holiday brew was awarded Gold Medals in 1997 and 1998 by the World Beer Championships , and was named their 1998 World Champion Winter Ale .

    From the first sip of Winter Solstice Seasonal Ale , your senses will be aroused with the vision of a glowing fire, warming the hearth and home, as gently drifting snow flakes silently blanket the trees outside. Each lingering sip will gently warm your soul with thoughts of family and friends, gathering around the table for the feast. Luscious, creamy, smooth, and warming, this medium bodied ale is brewed with Caramel and crystal malts to give it just a hint of sweetness, then paired with our private blend of holiday spice. Winter Solstice Ale is great alone or as an accompaniment to any meal, and it has been known to liven and spice up nearly any social event. This coveted and much sought-after brew is released in November, just in time for the holidays, and by the first of the New Year will be only a fond memory.

    As with all of our products, Winter Solstice Seasonal Ale is never sterile filtered nor heat pasteurized, and should be stored in refrigeration. However, to fully enjoy its rich and complex flavor, it should be served between 40° and 45°F

    6.9 % Alcohol by Volume


    FORD's rating:

    While this beer tastes more like a Belgian ale than it does the typical winter warmer, it's definitely the high quality product I've come to expect from Anderson Valley. I just wish their beer was a little easier to find around here.

    Best served ice cold after a political slaughter

    Here is one of the beers that my husband drank on his "beer rampage" in Belgium...
    It is a traditional brew that was fabricated by the Carmelites nuns, centuries ago...
    Apparently is it awsome!

    You can probably find it in a specialty store near you?
    (I really like the design of the logo and the glass...)

    The label looks familiar. I think I have seen it in a couple stores in town that carry the imports. I'll have to look for it.

    Greetings Rothalcoholics and HALEN hopheads!!

    Wow, over 6 months since the last beercyclopedia entry..... time flies huh?

    Truthfully, I've been drinking much less in my old age, and sticking with the old classics when I do. Hadn't tried anything new in a while.....

    Now you might remember that I've said in the past that I don't care for lager as much as an ale or a stout. As a rule that remains the case, but I found a lager worthy of note tionight.....



    Every microbrewery in the Northwest and probably everywhere else puts out some sort of light weight "summer brew" that's usually pretty lame. Had some Sam Adams "Summer Ale" at a friend's house earlier in the week and said to say it doesn't make the cut.

    But Full Sail has done well with this one. I hope they move it from a "Limited Edition" to a full time beer
