This showed up out of nowhere at my liquor store on Friday. It didn't stay there long though.

I've always been content with Newcastle Brown Ale or Guinness of any kind. I mean, it's nice to have some obscure beer* or whatever but that stuff can't be found as easily as I would like. Go into any bar or store and it's got Newcastle and or Guinness so...

*I admit my favorite is Foothills Torch Pilsner. But I live within walking distance of Foothills Brewing so that makes it easy to get. And it's actually served in a number of bars around the state too.

Smithwicks and Blue Moon as far as affordable stuff to drink on the regular Trappistes Rochefort 8 for something to thoroughly enjoy

had southern tier's Old Man Winter the other night. Now I usually avoid the Old Ale varieties, but this one was quite good and while it was strong, it was not over powering.

Also had Two Brothers Dog Days (its a dortmunder) which I dont think they have brewed this season but it still tasted very fresh... actually this was a beer I hadn't had for 3 years and last time around was the WORST BEER I HAD EVER HAD... it straight up tasted like wet dog. I'm happy to say that I think something was wrong with those bottles and that it is actually a solid beer.

I love hefeweizen's. My current fave is Schneider Weisse.

currently drinking Dogfishhead World Wide Stout. This is officially the strongest beer I've ever had at 18%. It's pretty good but really needs some more age on it.

I've drinking plenty o' Pliny on tap and my local pub's had Ballast Point "Sculpin" IPA on cask as well. Ballast Point and Ale Smith are one of the many reasons why this town is a hop head's mecca!

Hello: Question to the Original Poster: ?...Where is home that you can't get guiness?.... I think that a good beer, to just have sitting in the fridge could be... Dos Equis Lager pacifico newcastle bush light + a million others... In Europe: - "San Miguel". My suggestions for a little level 2 sippage: Chimay. Youngs double chocolate stout. samuel tadcaster's oatmeal stout. Guiness. Pilsner urquell. Grolsh. Spaten..mmm....etc...now i'm just rambling. Stell, if the tap is at the right temp. -happy holiday.s

for the record, its a dbl. ipa, not a pa.

awesome nonetheless. one of my favorite ipa's....next to the younger.

if you are a hophead, pliny is a must try! triple "c's" too the extreme!

cool it comes from canada.

unibroue has figured it out.

Affirmative and correct.

Gave this a whirl while back on the east coast.
An easy to drink, smooth winter time stout. Very dark, little head. Silky and malty.
While its not anything revolutionary I recommend for stout fans.

Time to send this pack to page 1.

All the talk about KBS got my attention. So with a little research I found a distributor in state that sells founders. Unfortunately, it appears KBS is a seasonal which is due out in a couple of weeks. So I opt for some of Founders other choices as it appears thy make some good beer. I picked up a 6 pack each of this:



The IPA was the better of the two. I will say that i was not prepared for either of these beers. Very strong flavor and heavier than I am used too. Still, I am curious to check out KBS and see if the hype is real.

Great thread. Looking forward to hearing some other suggestions to try.
