If you find stouts a bit too heavy there are always Porters - Meantime Porter comes highly recommended, and Guinness have started releasing older recipes - a Dublin Porter and for those who prefer a higher ABV a West Indies Porter.

I may not say it often, but I thank America smile.gif. The American craft brewing explosion has really revived an interest in UK brewing, with small breweries springing up, and the big boys playing catch up by producing less run-of-the-mill beers.

Love porters and stouts but can only drink one. Most IPAs I can stomach two or three and then at that point i'm hammered already. To tell the truth, though, I've been drinking ciders a lot recently. Tend to err towards ones that are a little stronger/less sweet than the typical woodchuck or something, but haven't really gotten into the "craft" cider game much. They just tend to be a lot lighter on my stomach than beers. I do want to get back into drinking whiskey/scotch though. 'tis the season.

Y'all beer guys should post in the Official SF beer thread more often.

To chime in, I really like hoppy beers but not the bitter ones. Tropical fruit and floral aroma IPA's are my favorties. Having tried a whole lot of them though, I'm a bit burnt out on them and I think they fall more in the category of "Summer Seasonal" for me. Lately I've been all about sour/funky beers and saisons. Now that the weather is turning though I'll likely start drinking more stouts. I really like syrupy barrel-aged stouts. For not barrel-aged: Founder's Breakfast is really good. I wish there were more options for Scotch Ales on the market. Dirty Bastard is really good. Old Chub not so much and there aren't many other options beyond that.

have you been to aeronaut yet? if not, we need to do a boston sf meetup there asap.

I love Old Chub and I'll drink that shit any day, especially if it's on nitro.

Bam, I was drinking a lot of Midwest beers up until my recent move (which by the way I'll be good to do a meet-up soon fellas, I'm just getting settled at the moment), so Robert the Bruce was my go-to. Founders Dirty Bastard is also great, but I couldn't be more enthusiastic about any brewery than I am about Three Floyds. Oh, and Bell's Best Brown. That is a fantastic beer.

I've got a lot more exploring to do our here now that the beer scene look so much different.

Ken, have you had any beers by the Bruery?
post #101471 of 109053
Perfect weather as always in the Bay Area, especially where my home is.

Cracked open another bottle of Hibiki over the weekend. Thanks @sinnedk

Brown ales used to be my go to. Scottish has always been a little too sweet for me, but in cocktails it's great.Then it became amber and it includes pale ale's (not ipa generally). I think my hand's down most favorite beer right now is Sierra Nevada's Old Chico Crystal Wheat. It's got a very balanced profile imo with a bit of everything including the bitter and finishes clean. Sadly the Bevmo I live next to has stopped stocking it since the remodel. Other than that.. Sierra Nevada Pale Ale or Mirror Pond Pale Ale do the treat. Redhook ESB occasionally.

I used to really love things like Anderson Valley Winter/Summer Solstice for deliciousness offerings, but again can't session those at all anymore.. actually tough to finish a single bottle.

I've always been a big cider guy. Pear Cider is my favorite, but what I really wish we imported more of is Lambic's. Really love Peach (Peche) Lambic... imo Lambics are the only thing that really deliver when you try a beer that supposedly has fruit influences in the flavor. Have had a Sugar Cane Lambic in Poland that was really spectacular but impossible to find here.

Something else I wish we could get here is: . Ciechan Brewery's Miodowe or honey beer. Something that's very popular in Poland are these honey beers, but this one I think conveys the flavor the deepest and the best while not being cloying/overly sweet. Sadly it's unfiltered/unpasteurized, the latter making it very hard to import or transport really. It was interesting enjoying beer in Poland... beer in general is insanely mild there in that it's so devoid of any bitter flavoring, and not much carbonation, that it goes down like water.

That said, living in the bay area.... also enjoy Pliny the Elder/Younger style offerings too. Wish we had access to Cigar City Brewery.
