    I drank cheap beer when I was 19 too. But that's not what this thread is about. This is just the quality stuff. Does that make me a beer snob? Fuck yes, but I don't get hangovers because I don't drink impurities.

    Lager's are generally lighter beers. If you were going to judge beer by terms of color alone, it would probably go, in terms of lightest to darkest....

    Pilsner.Lager.Ale.Stout.

    That's a basic guideline. Of course there are all sorts of branches off of any of those. Blondes, Porters, etc.

    The Beercyclopedia welcomes a new sponsor this weekend.... The IronHorse Brewery of Ellensburg Washington.



    Malty & dark red in color, Loco-Motive features an
    aromatic hop bite to balance the sweet flavor.


    If their red ale is this hoppy, I can't wait to try their IPA.

    But then, the finest hops in the world are grown within a short distance from Ellensburg, so why not use what you got?

    And the results are excellent. And appropriately named. This stuff goes down smooth, but at 7.5% alcohol, it hits you like a fucking freight train. But only in the best way.

    BTW, the owner of Iron Horse used to work for Sierra Nevada, so if you are fans of their work, you might want to look for this stuff.

    Exactly.....

    Even some drummers have taste when it comes to brews.......

    There are NO mass produced American beers worth a piss. None. Nada.

    And anyone who thinks Shiner is a quality brew, either has no taste, or has never actually tasted real beer

    I know we're spoiled up here in Cascadia, with some of the best microbreweries in the world, but shit even Sam Adams is better than any swill brewed in Texass.

    And quality NEVER comes in a 30-pack, or for under $7.00 a six-pack.

    And if you're ever in the neighborhood, you HAVE to go to the Kreutzberg Monestary in Ober Wildflicken. The beer can only be purchased at the monastary or the gasthaus in front. It is the last Monastary beer (Klosterbier) brewery in Germany that is still 100% controlled by monks. All the other Kloster biers are either owned or run by a brewery.

    I agree but with one exception. Guinness Draught can be purchased in a tall can with a special widget ball inside that makes it pour similar to a tap (liquid nitrogen or something...not too sure). Not the same by any means, but not bad in a pinch and certainly doesn't suck.

    OK..... I'll concede that one. I'll drink Guinness from a can if I have to. But it's still better in a bottle. Or on tap.

    Great Lakes appears to have some interesting products, but it looks like the more interesting choices are only seasonal or "pub-based". Bummer that they don't have a stout in their year round product line.

    Yeah...it's not bad in the can...Kilkenny, ice cold is pretty good out of the can too.

    I still prefer the bottles though...

    Seems to be some controversy on the net whether or not it would be advisable to order such a drink in an actual Irish pub. Haven't tried one yet, but it sounds like one Hell of an idea.

    Has to be better than a Jaeger Bomb (Jaegermeister & Red Bull) which tasted like carbonated cough syrup.

    Inappropriate

    A friend of mine went to a pub in Ireland and asked for an Irish Car Bomb -- the bartender told him to fuck off and asked how he would like it if he went to the states and ordered a "9/11".

    This doesn't really belong here but I'm adding it anyways. (Still has BEER in the title) Fucking delicious fresh from a cooler of chipped ice.

    IBC still contains high fructose corn poison. Better off going with real sugar sweetened Thomas Kemper



    (also, it's made by a brewery, so that almost brings this thread back on topic )

    If you are a purist when it comes to Hefeweizen's this is not the beer for you. It almost is the equivalent to a Hefe Light? Not as heavy/full bodied as a traditional Hefeweizen. Their Pale Ale was disappointing. This one is not too bad.

    LOL. Sorry. Back on topic, I don't know a whole lot about whats in a beer, rating numbers, etc...I just go by what tastes good. This one is always a treat.

    IBC is outstanding. It certainly is worth the cost, as our local market sells it for nearly 4 dollars a six pack. And you are absolutely correct, it needs to be served ice-cold.

    Haven't tried that one, but it doesn't look all that "blonde" to me. Though at 7.1% it's probably stronger than most blondes.

    There are exceptions though.... the best night of beer drinking I ever had was at a political fundraiser in the late 1990's sponsored by the local home brewers association. All the beer I could drink, and it didn't cost me a penny because I was working the event. They had a blonde ale there that was lighter than your typical pisswater domestic, but at around 8%, it was anything BUT weak. Wish I knew how to get in touch with those guys, but my political rolodex from the Young Democrats days is long gone

    Beer Style: Belgian Strong Golden Ale

    Avery makes some decent brews. This is a very heavy but flavorful Belgian-Style Golden Ale. While not what I'd consider a true Golden Ale it is worth trying.

    That picture is the last glass full out of the bottle.......hmmmmm good. Overall B+.

    Happy winter beer season y'all!

    For those of you with a Trader Joe's nearby, you might want to pick up some of this stuff....



    2009 Vintage Ale
    Only at Trader Joe’s!
    You might be used to seeing
    vintages on wine; perhaps not so much
    on beer. And that’s what makes this
    beer so special. Trader Joe’s Vintage
    Ale was developed, crafted, brewed
    and bottled for us in limited quantities
    in 2009. Its favor, color, texture and
    overall character are different from our
    Vintage Ale of 2008, and in 2010 it will
    be different once again.
    The 2009 Vintage Ale is an
    opaque black color and features an
    impressive coffee-colored foam. It
    boasts cocoa and malt aromas, with
    a subtle hint of lemon and ginger. A
    sip really brings out the best in this
    ale – malty and mildly sweet, with
    hints of cocoa, citrus and spices. Chill
    and enjoy right away. Unlike many
    beers, though, this one will become
    more complex and interesting as time
    goes by, so save some for next year to
    compare with next year’s 2010 vintage.
    Our excellent value price of $4.99 for
    each 750 ml makes this a vintage to
    savor.
    This isn't your typical FORD country review, since I haven't cracked open the bottle yet. Just posted here for the benefit of those who might want to pick some up for the holiday, so you gotta get to TJ's before 6:00 PM tomorrow

    But by the description and the fact that this is a 9% brew, I doubt I will be disappointed. Trader Joes rarely lets me down.......

    Steinlager is about the only KIWI beer I've ever seen, and even that was a while back. Didn't even realize at first it was from NZ with a German sounding name like that.

    Looks like theres a Renaissance Brewery down there that makes some interesting stuff though.....
