Deschutes Hop in the Dark. One of the few benefits of being in Texas is access to Deschutes and Boulevard.

I would not get a case of Brux if you paid me to take out the door.

It's that bad?

I guess if it pops up someplace convenient I'll get it but you're making me not want to go out of my way to get it.

What style of beers do you like? If you're into stouts I can recommend a ton of 10% and up beers that will have you, and your apparently low alcohol tolerance, feeling frisky before you know it.

Got a sixer of St. Arnold's Divine Reserve #12 today. Supposedly one of the last two or three six packs in D/FW. Sort of like a dubbel, although with less of a yeasty taste than you would expect in a belgian beer. I enjoyed it, although in general I prefer something drier and more hoppy.

I don't know if you live in a place that has Central Market, but I saw a bunch of bottles of it there today.

St. Arnold brings back memories. It started in Houston and is still here I think.



This picture was taken in the late 1990s ( I think ).

They had this promotional vintage Rolls Royce back in their original location.

This is a picture of me and a GF, in the St. Arnold's RR, visiting the brewery many years ago. I don't drink alcohol, but she said the beer was excellent:)

Picked up a couple of bottles this weekend. The best so far is the Jester King/Mikkeller collaboration Drink'in the Sunbelt. Similar to a saison/farmhouse style. Very delicious. Also got a bottle of Avery's Maharajah IPA, which was great, and a Rodenbach Grand Cru (based on recommendations from this thread).

Rambo,

saw your post from a while back. Have you had Dogfish Head's World Wide Stout?

Various stout's I've had:
Duck Rabbit Milk Stout
Butternut's Moo Thunder Stout
Founder's Breakfast Stout
Great Divide Espresso Oak Aged Yeti
New Holland Dragon's Milk and Night Tripper.

I'll need to get my hands on some Old Rasputin though.

Please let me know. Pliny the elder relaxes my nerves more than anything else. It's unlike drinking hard liquor which I can consistently drink without I'll effect

Belgian and Belgian style beers are your friend. Three Philosophers is a personal favorite.

I've been intrigued by Mikkeller beers for a while but I've been hesitant to pull the trigger on any of them because they are expensive and I've been told they are really hit or miss. But I genuinely loved the Jester King collab that I tried this weekend, and I'm wanting to try some other Mikkeller stuff. Can anyone recommend me some of his better varieties? I'm partial to IPAs, tripels, saisons, and the like.
