^You should try better beers. We had some Russian River Damnation the other day. This is the first time I've spotted Russian River in Seattle. It was a tasty interpretation of a Belgian golden ale, with a slightly sour finish.

As of recent my go to beer has been Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. When I first tried it I did not like it. Now I love it and can even find it on tap at some local bars.

Augustiner and Schneider Weiße wheat beer is the only real thing.

Sounds like a lot of SF'ers need to be as discriminating in their beer choices as in their clothing choices. That said, I don't have a favorite, but I could name a couple: La Binchoise Blonde Corsendonk Abbey Pale Ale Ommegang Hennepin Schneider Weisse Original Not that I drink so well on a daily basis, unfortunately.

The 17 rules. Try the 15 and 16 anniversaries if you can find them. Of the three, the 16 is my favorite.

You know, I just can't get into anything Ommegang makes. Certainly, it's full of complexity, but that's the problem. I just find it to be overly busy while accomplishing nothing. I'm yet to try the other three you listed, but I'll make it a point to do so.

I know what you mean: Three Philosophers comes to mind...

Rare Vos & Hennepin are good, though.

I just tried Hoegaarden the other day for the first time and wow it was good. I think I will be putting it into my regular rotation.

I think Russian River Brewing Company produce some of the best Belgian-style beers in the world, and I'm including Belgium in this claim.

I'm too lazy to search this thread, but have many of you guys tried the Saisons, or farmhouse beers from Belgium? I think they're perfect for this time of year. Saison Dupont and Fantome are two of my faves.

I have a few favorites. Here are some from last week that are in my regular rotation. I try to keep them on hand at all times: Brooklyn Brewery Monster Ale (2007) Stone Double Bastard Aventinus Weizen-Icebock Weihenstephaner Hefe Weissbier

+1. Was a pleasant surprise it was real good.

I tried Chimay (red label) for the first time and was disappointed. Not that great, imho.
