    I still like Stella, I love me some red-stripe and theres a bunch of local brews (Granville Island - Comes in Honey Lager, Maple Brown, pale ale and cream ale)

    Alexander Keith's is pretty good too.

    Cheap two-four: Miller Genuine Draft. It's not bad, not amazing, easy to drink and it's cheap. Good beer for eating with if you're at a party or something.
    It's fine

    The stout is really fucking tasty, much better than Guiness. It pretty much tastes like coffee. Here's a review:

    Trappiste Rochefort no. 10, my friends:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rochefort_Brewery
    Rochefort 10 (blue cap, dark beer, 11.3% ABV). Reddish-brown colour, with a very compact head and an aroma of figs, feels like honey in the mouth. The alcohol profile is a major component in the flavour of this rich ale. It is very similar to 6 and 8, but has much more of everything. Some may find the high alcohol content to be disagreeable.
    The brewery is located inside the Abbey of Notre-Dame de Saint-Rmy, near the town of Rochefort, and has been brewing beer since 1595. There are approximately 15 monks resident at the monastery. The monks are very secretive about the brewing process, and the brewery is not open to the public, therefore much of the information publicly known about the brewery comes from only a few sources.

    Like many strong Belgian beers, those produced at Rochefort age well and can be cellared for at least five years whilst maintaining quality. Each of these beers is brewed to the same recipe, with the only difference being the alcoholic content. The water for the beers is drawn from a well located inside the monastery walls.

    As with all other trappist breweries, the beer is only sold in order to financially support the monastery and some other good causes. The monks will not increase production based on demand or profit motives, but only enough to support themselves, resulting in a fairly limited supply of beer availability. In practice, there is currently no shortage through regular channels.

    That obsidian looks great. Just had one of these two days ago....really like it.

    Although, real men brew their own ; )

    I'm doing a batch up this weekend. Maybe I'll do something SRK inspired.

    My beer pic

    So, I collect beer bottles.. I have over a 100 in my basement, from all the different kinds I've tried. Here are only some of them, but I ranked them in order from left to right, the ones on the left being the most tasteful, and the ones on the right being "the worst" ... lol @ the last bottle.

    I'm sharing with you cause I want you to try some of the better beers if you are going to be drinking, so you can see for yourself if you like it.. Trying a budweiser or a coors light isn't going to give "beer" justice cause you are basically drinking garbage.

    Its like eating a day old mcdonalds cheese burger left out in the sun vs a high quality burger from a restaurant or self made.

    Ok so, Its a pretty high res picture, but if you have questions, ie. which one is that in the picture, etc, I will answer.

    Of course I can only rank it by my taste, but I've drank over 150 brands and tried different types of beer so my advise may be helpful.

    You'll have to scroll along because the picture is huge. If you were going to the liquor store and could only buy a few, I wouldn't recommend the last 20 beers on the right side. They aren't the best tasting (some of them taste like down right crap). Anything to the left of those 20 are eh ok in my book.

    And LOL @ the Smirnoff Ice at the end of your beer line. La Fin Du Monde is awesome and Boddington's is great too. I like a lot of the beers you have up there, but I'm not a fan of the Double Choc Stout or the Bombadier :(. You should try out Hop Devil if you'll drink Hop Head.

    I don't know if you can get this outside of Wisconsin but anything made by the New Glarus Brewing Company is top notch stuff. Spotted Cow's really popular but Fat Squirrels probably the best I think they have.

    Wisconsin kicks ass for beer.. I went to New York and almost shat myself when I saw Sierra Nevada and Newcastle being $11 for a 6 pack. That's almost double the price then it is in Wisconsin

    $11 a 6 for those two?! Really?! That's disgusting, Austin sees Sierra Nevade at like $6.99 a 6 and Newcastle probably for $6/6. Gross.

    The bar I work at just stopped serving it on draft. However, I can still find it at most grocery stores. I agree, it's a very good beer.

    6 dollars for a 6 pack of newcastle? We get fucked in Canada, we pay 11+ tax.

    La Fin Du Monde is a good beer. That company in montreal who makes it, has beer which really tastes unique. Most of their beers are 7-9%. DON DE DIEU, MAUDITE, CHAMBLY NOIRE and TROIS PISTOLES all taste good. BLANCHE DE CHAMBLY, I really can't drink it and think it tastes bad. I don't like light light beer or white beer.

    I have tried Hoegaarden within the last year and I only tried 1 (you got a bottle and a Hoegaarden glass mug for $6. I thought it was alright (average). I'd drink it, but I wouldn't be rushing to go get it because there are a lot of other beers which are comparable which I think taste better. We all have different tastes I guess. I gotta try it more than once though so I'll get back to you on that one.

    I'm a big fan of double chocolate stout.

    You can't get Hop Devil where I live but I'll be on the lookout for it.

    New Glarus Brewing- never heard of them before but that's because they only distribute in Wisconsin according to their site :(

    What do you guys think is the worst commercially available/known beer? I'd say Coors light. I seriously think it tastes like piss and had to huck it when I tried some.

    Has anyone tried the beer "XO" .. I believe it was from france.. have to go look on the bottle. Anyway, its the 2nd to last beer on my picture there. Its cognac & beer mixed. Fuck, I had to poor it out it tasted so bad.

    New Belgium's 2 Below is a really good winter ale. Although, New Belgium is kind of getting old for me, I've had too many Fat Tires. I guess you're from Texas talking about Zeigenbock and Shiner, I really like Shiner Heffeweizen when I don't want to drink piss but I don't want to spend a lot on a beer.

    XO, my dad drank a couple of those back in the day. I think I tasted a sip once and cried a little. It felt like my taste buds were being raped.

    As far as commercially available? I've gotta go with Pabst Blue Ribbon. That is one nasty fucking beer right there. Although, now that I think about it, so is Foster's. WHICH IS A CANADIAN BEER, NOT AN AUSTRALIAN ONE

    My standard higher-end beers that are easily accessible to me are Heineken, Red Stripe and Foster's. I think Heineken Light is well done.

    I found Stella to be overrated IMO. For awhile people were raving about Amstel Light, I thought it was a bit overrated as well (not as bad as Stella, though). Decent beers, just not worth that extra import price to me.

    Sam Adams is okay I guess.

    I'm pretty flexible, it's probably better for me to say what I don't like. I don't really dig Yuengling. I'll pass on Guinness too - I like my beer lighter rather than darker in general.


    I'll have to try Fat Tire one day soon.

    Man, I love me some Spatan Optimator. Ive had better beers -- and better dopplebocks, but its that nice combination of cheap and available while still being quality. I had Augustonator once which was hella awesome but sadly they don't sell it anywhere.

    One time I got my dad a local Imperial Stout (Fat Dog) and some Hoegaarden and he made a "Black and tan" (more like black and blond but whatever) that tasted awesome. Sacraligious, but awesome.

    Blahblahblah anything by Stone, blahblah Unibrew makes awesomeweird stuff,blahblah.

    Oh yeah. A friend of mine got Skullsplitter one time (as we are nerds and easily coerced by vikings) -- it wasn't at all what I expected! It was highly drinkable for a high ABV beer! I was very impressed by that. Tasty and smooth. I was more expecting a hops bomb... Not that I don't like that either. I dig me some IPAs. I had one (billed as an 'Imperial IPA', which is a bit silly!) called the hoppopotimus. God I loved it. I wish they still made it. ;_;

    I'm glad to finally see a beer thread on a forum that doesn't suck.

    Ohh man if you like Chimay you have to try the Rochefort I mentioned before.

    Hey that guy who collects beer bottles from all over: you want me to send you a few?

    I have some in the closet, just waiting to throw them out:

    Tiger
    Hoegaarden
    Leffe Blond

    Hi man, thanks for the offer. Nah, its cool. I only collect bottles of beers I've tried. I've tried hoe & leffe before and have those, just not in the picture.

    Question though. Rochefort 10, as in this?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Rochefort-beers.jpg

    If so, how did you get one of those? Aren't they extremely rare? I've heard of some sites that important hard to find beers from overseas and ship em to your address, but they charge an arm & leg, and you have to pay for shipping costs!
  • Okazaki IIIOkazaki III PARRY THAT SHIT SON Joined: Posts: 681 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
    There's a speciality bar around here that only serves Dutch and Belgian beer.

    Yeah that's the one, the Rochefort is rare, especially No 10, but No 6 and 8 are easier to get (again in this bar mentioned above).

    You can order online from what I've seen but I'm not sure if buying a speciality beer like this over the internet is a good idea.

    For all I know it's a replica from China with added lead and sulfur ;-)

    What are some good dark beers?

    *Fuller's London Porter
    *Trois Pistoles = http://www.unibroue.com/products/3pistoles.cfm
    *Traquair Jacobite Ale = http://www.traquair.co.uk/breweryales.html
    *Black Sheep Ale = http://www.blacksheepbrewery.co.uk/Beers/BottledBeers/BlackSheepAle.aspx
    *Guinness
    *St Ambroise Oatmeal Stout = http://www.mcauslan.com/en/ourbeers/sta_stout.htm
    *Youngs Double Chocolate Stout

    These are ones I think you can get if you went to a few big liquor stores.

    TIP: Call your local beer brewery and ask if they do tours. I went on one with my buddies. It was $6, 1 hr.. first 25 mins they show you how the beer is made and what goes into it. And the last 40+ mins is drinking all the different types.. usually 6+ samples but the one I went to, they gave us as much as we could drink.. for $6

    Tried Hoegaarden. It's not bad, but it's not really my favorite. The orange flower or whatever gives it a soy sauce taste that I don't dig, which means that it doesn't beat Michelob Ultra, Tiger Beer, or Bierbitzch as my top beers.

    The bottle says 4.9% now, so it probably got stepped down even more.

    And yeah. I prefer less-flavorful beers, if you couldn't tell. I hate Guinness.

    it's definitely pilsner urquell.

    and since i'm in beer mode right now let me drop some knowledge all over about pilsner urquell.

    while not my favorite pilsner, it is the original pilsner. when i say original i mean the style didn't even exist until this beer. back in the day all beer was dark and muddy and gross looking so people drank out of big wooden cups or iron or whatever. anyway, pilsner urquell was the first light golden beer produced where people were actually like "hey dude, i kinda wanna look at how pretty it is"

    so they invented........... GLASSES. Yes, the fact that you drink out of glasses now is because of pilsner urquell. pretty cool i guess. it's also one of the first filtered beers which means that you can actually see through it instead of it just being clouded with sediment and yeast.

    and even after that they designed pilsner glasses which are tall and slender and always keep a 1/4 inch head if poured correct, because head is always good. if you don't think head on your beer is good than you should stop throwing keggers with natty ice and take the time to drink some real beer.

    anyway pilsner urquell is now handled by SABMiller but still upholds it's reputation, I couldn't tell you for certain but i'd say the recipe is probably still pretty close, although in it's beginning stages it was probably a lot more like pinkus organic. but then again i have no idea, so who cares about this paragraph.

    words.

    don't go crazy, and if it's not going well just hop the fuck out of it. i bartend there, i don't actually brew. sometimes i volunteer to help but mostly i just end up shoveling yeast around =(

    but at least i can say i help make some of my own beer, and it's fucking good.

    also marijuana is a direct relative of the hop.

    so who here is no a fan of wheat beers?


    imo they leave a horrid aftertaste. I had a friend buy one of those Flying Dog sampler packs when we had a party a while back and after it was all done one of the ones that was left was a wheat ale.

    Are there any good wheat ales? The only one that i can think of that is remotely tolerable is Blue Moon but even that I would pass up for a good Yeungling(seppy you should def. try this one yo)

    Funny you mention this... I tried a Sam Adams Cherry Wheat one time, it was pretty good. As with most beers that have some exotic/unusual ingredient, you probably wouldn't want to drink a lot of this in one sitting, but a couple would be enjoyable. I don't know if it's a "true" wheat beer, just going by the name. It was in one of those variety twelve packs - I have not seen it as a stand-alone 6 pack.

    I had a couple Gulden Draaks the other night. Woke up and found out I had made 3 seperate shits on my carpet.

    :wasted: I'm going to take this as a recommendation against... :rofl:

    When I drink Beer, I prefer Miller High life personally. It's pretty cheap and I think it tastes great!

    But whenever I go out to a Beer specialty store or see a beer I haven't tried at a restaurant I always gotta get at least one. I had this odd one from Germany at a place called the Orlando Ale house it had orange and cheery flavoring to it. It was interesting to say the least, but I'd recommend it!

    Tried Hoegaarden. It's not bad, but it's not really my favorite. The orange flower or whatever gives it a soy sauce taste

    Soy Sauce?! You serious?

    Your taste buds have yellow fever, or the export version has a completely different taste from what we drink out of the barrel here :D

    I wish you guys could have Hoegaarden straight from the tap here, and to know if you still have the same opinion then.

    I'm curious now - if you (goes for 3bir1xah as well) try Leffe Bruin & Blonde, post up. Those breweries are bound to fuck with the taste depending on geo location, for brand purposes etc.

    I think someone else mentioned it as well, in the other beer thread.

    Abita Beer's Purple Haze is my favorite microbrew. I've only seen it available at BevMo and one bar, the bar I used to work at. I haven't enjoyed beer in almost 3 years. All the beer available to me (overseas) is swill. Can you believe that people overseas are willing to drop 5 dollars for a bottle of Corona (ugh)...at a supermarket??? Ridiculous.
    do you believe I would take such a thing with me, and give it to a police man

    Haha! My room mates are currently aging a Porter that they made for six months. They just past the half-way mark.

    Man, that should be good. The longer you age 'em, the better.

    I just bottled last week, and finally got to try my Old Ale. Really good, but is very green. Needs to age in the bottle a little longer. I usually drink my batches up before the are "ready", though. Too good.

    I love wheats, for a different beer. Most are a little sweeter. Here's one I picked up at the grocery store. There whole line is great:
