    ^I've had the To Øl – By Udder Means BA yesterday. It was good, but bang for the buck wise it was disappointing. Relatively plain. Not much experience with milk stouts though.

    [​IMG]

    Also had a bottle of Mastri Birrai Umbri Cotta 37 yesterday. Bought at an Italian supermarket. Pretty bad.

    I'm almost through all the Mikkeller bottles. :embar: Gotta say, all in all, it's good stuff.

    So, aside from the Liquid Confidence (just saw that it's sold out :( -- might give it a try when I order from bieresgourmet), which beers from shop.mikkeller.dk/product-category/beer/ can you guys recommend? Gonna place an order soon since I want to try the Riesling and maybe get some more pint glasses.

    I poured the BY UDDER MEANS into the sink... Not enough body...

    Beers I'd recommend from the Mikkeller e-shop:

    http://shop.mikkeller.dk/shop/beer/mikkellerbrewdog-i-hardcore-you/
    http://shop.mikkeller.dk/shop/beer/mikkeller-black-hole-2013-ed/
    http://shop.mikkeller.dk/shop/beer/mikkeller-beer-weak-brunch-weasel/
    http://shop.mikkeller.dk/shop/beer/black/

    Actually: I have all these here, but I paid less for 'm... Léss at a Belgian store than through their webshop... Kinda weird, to say the least... Belgian breweries (eg. Struise) do this as well though...

    Another good alternative for doing an order is:

    http://www.demolenbeershop.com/

    Lotsa €uro and US beers, véry reasonably priced, and boxes are bombproof.

    Not Mikeller but in that shop - Crooked Stave Saison Surrette is really good. I also highly recommend Betelgeuze - if your a fan of sours.

    Anyone had the Sponta- series? The place I stopped by had a whole run. I was intrigued by a couple (Elderflower & Rose Hip) but wasn't sure if they were worth dropping $15/$16 bucks on them a piece.

    Thanks. Just stumbled upon http://www.beergium.com which have extremely low delivery rates (6 € for 27 kg to Germany) and the pices are pretty good. Reviews seem good too. And good selection.

    Something worth trying among these US-beers (AleSmith, Crooked Stave, Lost Abbey, Prairie etc.)--keep in mind that they're likely not extremely fresh? http://www.beergium.com/en/325-us

    Wtf that site is awesome

    I dunno what your preference is (mine is pretty much sours and IPAs) but I would cop

    Logsdon saison bretta
    Pretty things jack d'or
    Prarie artisan prarie ale
    Crooked stave vielle, surette, hop savant

    For porters
    Alesmith speedway stout

    The b nektar Zombie killer is great but pricey (although it is fermented honey so probably should be a little expensive)

    Geuze Mariage Parfait 2010. So delicious.

    Onkel Herbert Rhabarber Weisse. This is relatively light-bodied overall and the hint of rhubarb works well. Refreshing.

    Schönbuch Original. Recipe from 1904. Not bad, maybe a bit too sweet for my taste.
    [​IMG]
    Liefmans Goudenbrand. Very good.

    All: looking for some beer recommendations for NYC. I'll be there in October with no real itinerary -- just accompanying my wife for a conference and taking care of our baby.

    My favorite bar in New York used to be Spuyten Duyvil, but, in all honesty, I haven't been there since 2004. The last time I was in New York, which was already three years ago, I made it to BXL East which was conveniently located and fine. What are the places that I can't miss? I've already got Torst on the map, and maybe the baby and I will tour Brooklyn Brewery (another place I haven't been since the early '00s).

    Unibroue from Quebec is phenomenal. Definitely try the Maudite or La Fin du Monde when you get a chance.

    Torst is great, in Manhattan I always gravitate towards the Blind Tiger if I am downtown or Rattle n Hum if closer to Midtown. Not been to Bierkraft but thats in Park Slope..

    ^ +1 on Rattle n Hum. Visited there on my last trip to NYC. Was not disappointed.

    I really don't like rattle n hum. Kinda dingy and sucky bartenders depending on what time you go tho. Food is mediocre bar food

    Gingerman was my go to. You can get cheap korean food somewhat nearby at pocha or sichuan food at grand sichuan near Bryant park almost around the corner

    If you go torst do the tasting menu at the restaurant. Make sure you get reservations. Clover club is nearby as well if you're down with cocktails

    Also the beer room at the whole foods on Bowery. Eat some ramen at yuji ramen upstairs

    Some underrated recs:
    Top hops
    One mile house
    Ale wife
    Cafe d'alsace
    Grammercy tavern
    Pony bar

    The best combination of high end dining and beer is probably blue hill stone barn in tarrytown (last time I went they had rose de gambrinus for $35) and eleven Madison park.

    Also don't miss other half brewing (awesome IPAs) in brooklyn. Seriously. If I went back and had to choose just one place I'd go to other half and then walk 20 min to pok pok.

    If you end up going to tarrytown my favorite brewery on the east coast (Peekskill) isn't too terribly far away.

    @concealed , @archibaldleach , @indesertum -- thanks for the recommendations. All have been added to the map. Figure I'll just strap the kid on, wander around town, and see where I end up.

    Had a lambic for the first time the other day, it was two years old. It was much more sweet than I thought it would be, but I liked it.

    This should last a while.. thanks for the recs.
    Am I right to assume that I should drink the Crooked Stave Hop Savant and Naparbier / Mikkeller We Brew Gold "asap" while the others (saisons, lambics, stouts, dubbels, tripels, quadrupels etc.) don't have such a short shelf life?
