    Guinness... or whatever they're serving at wherever I happen to be in Prague.

    You might be the only person I've ever heard of going to Prague to look for Guinness. [​IMG]

    Guinness? The most diluted beer at pubs. Black watery liquid with almost no taste.

    Has anybody tried the Dogfish Ta Kent(?) Egyptian ancient beer? I just watched the Brew Masters ep and it looks surprisingly tasty.

    Has anyone had Lucky Bastard or Double Bastard? Worth buying the 22oz bottle? I like Arrogant Bastard and was wondering if I should try the other 2 varieties (they have them at Whole Foods).

    Do you think $14 is a good price for one of those 4-packs? They sell them at a grocery store on the east side for that price.

    Morton Williams on 2nd ave and 46th street (or maybe 47th)


    I was under the impression you could get them for around $10 at a Total Wine/Total Beverage if you have those in the NE.

    Oak aged bastard is real good. Double bastard is good too.

    I like Double Bastard, I have a couple bottles of that in my cabinet, Oaked is good as well. I actually have a lot of Stone stuff [​IMG]

    I liked their XS Imperial Red quite a bit. Also John John.

    Thanks! I will go buy one of each.

    Thus far I have tried...

    Arrogant Bastard
    Stone IPA
    Imperial Russian Stout

    Liked all 3. Whole Foods has Ruination IPA, Lucky Bastard, Double Bastard and some kind of Stone Porter. Going to give them all a try.

    Stone RIS is one of my personal favs, it does help that their Midwest Rep is also a friend of mine too...

    I like Stone quite a lot. For San Diego breweries I prefer Ballast Point, Ale Smith and even Coronado Brewing Company has been kicking ass these last several years. Of course, they probably don't carry these at the Whole Foods on your side. If they do, don't hesitate.

    Just had a coupla' pints of Anchor Small Beer with my philly cheesesteak lunch at one of my locals.

    husbands - Hitachino Nest beers are delicious.

    It's probably been mentioned already in this thread, but Dogfishhead Raison D'Etre is currently pleasantly and deliciously impairing my faculties.
