They also have a chocolate variety and a expresso variety that .... mmm... yea, mmm.

I also like this beer I get in Belize called "Belikin" stout... very good. brewed/bottled in Belize. Yum. I keep a Belikin bar coaster in my wallet to remind of an easier life.

Had the espresso variety 2 weeks ago on draft - amaaaazing.

Damn! I didn't check out their shipping locations, but if you ever want to trade for something or would like me to send you something. We can always work something out, let me know...

Buy the XMas Chimay and Delerium gift packs. Can't beat saving on beer AND getting free glasswear.

Thanks. I might take you up on that.

I have already scoped out a liquor store on the beerfly section of BA for when I am in Palm Springs.

Chouffe does one as well that includes a snifter.

Had this beer last night. Had many similar characteristics of an American Pale Ale but was also very sour. Not my kind of beer.

I generally use the snifter/stemmed pilsner for my beers, especially on the first drink. Some beers I'll use a mug, stein, pint or regular pilsner. I like the guide on beeradvocate

do you really see a difference in the type of glassware you use?
post #1108 of 6579
Recently this has been my favorite beer. A very smooth porter that's easy to drink, if you like porters.

While not technically a snifter...these tulips were the culmination of a long hunt for some cheap but nice tulips. This set of 4 is cheaper than most single tulips. The quality is great, thick glass and beautiful. Highly recommended.

Yes! Thats why is some serious beer drinking countries they won't serve you the beer you ordered unless they have the right glass for it. See here for the explanations of each glass and how it enhances the experience:

Beyond the taste experience, having a beautiful glass just makes it more fun...at least to me!

As for favorites...

Goose Island Chicago

....Bourbon County Stout was the best beer in the world to me until they released....Bourbon County Coffee Stout! Good luck finding it. A+ rating on beeradvocate. Delicious.

Also enjoy from them, Perre Jaques, Nightstalker, and Matilda. Strangely their widely available Summertime and 312 wheat don't do much for me, but nothing that comes in a 12 pack does anymore lol.

Next is

Unibrouie

From Quebec. Haven't found one I haven't loved yet. All of them have a similar belgian yeast flavor and a bit of "champaign" carbonation and flavor to them. They also make the annual ales for Trader Joes. If you've never had one, start with La Fin du Monde for a fruity belgian or Maudite if you like a bit less fruit flavor.

Also I'm working through

Stone Brewery

which recently was released in chicago. I didn't care for the Arrogant Bastard ale. Maybe I got a bad bottle but it was too bitter for me. Self-Righteous ale was delicious though, a bit of grapefruit and tons of west coast hops. I've got a Russian Imperial stout and a Barleywine ready to drink next.

This year its like a whole new world opened up to me with fine beers, thanks to my beer savant friends for inviting me to it.
