1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    I would add any Chouffe to the list, Hefeweissbier Dunkel if you can find it on tap (The Saloon in DC is a good place), and Saison Dupont with food.

    Tarmac, great choice with the Aventinus--incredible beer. Same with the Spaten and the Sam Smith stout for that matter.

    EDIT: Goose Island makes great beer for their price. And the Reserves are also worth looking into--the Bourbon County Stout is one of the best and strangest "beers" I've ever had.

    Ha. I only drink it on tap if they serve it in the correct octagonal glass...which pretty much narrows it to the one place I know.

    when in Atlanta, I carry my own octoganal glass with me, and only speak flemish to the waiter.

    I really like Anchor Steam's barley wine, Old Foghorn.

    Old Peculier used to one of my favorites, although I have not had it in quite some time.

    I would recommend Crazy Horse to you sir - I think you would enjoy it.

    Is whatever is cheapest and lightest the wrong answer?

    Not if you drink it out of an octagonal glass.

    Probably one I've never tasted. But Unibroue's lineup comes pretty damn close to experiencing Beervana. Last time I was in the US, I almost went mental with the variety of regional microbrews you guys have and the low prices. [​IMG]

    People are going off-topic. *Nothing fancy, strange, hard-to-find*

    I like Sapporo, bang for the buck in the giant bottle.

    If you go to Puerto Rico, make sure to get some Medalla, the Coors Light of PR.

    These beer threads always turn into a contest of who can name the most exotic, never heard of, "this guy must really know what he's talking about" beers out there.
