    Beer Thread

    So in honor of Tailgate here's the BEER thread.

    Yeah we've done this before but not to the scope and complexity of oil, and as beer is much more important than oil. Here we go!

    List your favorites and the WORST beer you've ever had. You I know some of you will say, "Hey a FREE beer is good beer, so there is no bad beer." Well...I beg to differ.

    Feel free to show your passion and justifications for your brands, just like oil.

    Favorites:
    Fat Tire Ale
    Guinness
    Gary Beer (my friend Gary home brews the best stouts in the world, sorry Brits)
    Left Hand Pale Ale
    Any Pilsner

    Not so much
    Coors products, especially Keystone, and whats up with the cold labels - that's stupid
    Most Bud products
    Most Miller products
    Red Stripe - What crap!
    My first batch of Pale Ale using the Mr. Beer kit. Welcome to MR.BEER® - Home

    Whiskeys - yeah its not beer but I like a good whiskey too.
    Middleton - straight, can you say smmmmoooooth?

    Sam Adams!

    Fat Tire Ale is good but have you tried their Skinny Dip?? Very Good

    Oh and I got to try some Budweiser Select this weekend and it is terrible!

    Funny you should say that about the Labels because I heard that "We Salute you Commercial" about the Blue bottles and thought it was hilarious! Not as funny as the Mr way to proud of Texas guy though....lol

    Re: Beer Thread

    Let's see....


    The Good:
    Sam Adams - Any flavor except the Cranberry.
    Smuttynose - S'muttonator Double Bock and Imperial Stout
    Redhook - Blackhook, ESB and Winterhook
    Harpoon - UFO Hefeweizen
    Seadog - Old East India Pale Ale

    The bad:
    Most domestic beers although MGD isn't bad.
    Sam's Cranberry
    Anything fruited!

    Want to try BADLY:
    Smoked Porter - Alaskan Brewing Company
    Tröegenator Double Bock - Tröegs Brewing Company

    I am a fan of beers that offer some body and weight along with great taste. I love the Stouts, Ales, Porters, Bocks and Hefeweizen so long as it is true to form (unfiltered)

    Hard stuff and I don't get along... we don't go there.

    Wine: A lot of them, depends on the mood, the atmosphere and the food. A good wine isn't necessarily an expensive wine. I'd had some really good ones for under $10 a bottle. I'm REALLY linking the Aussie Yellow Tail wines a lot! The land Down Under grows some very good earthy tone grapes! Between Australia and California, I'm all set with wine!

    Oh I do like Skinny Dip! Very good.

    I lived in Ft. Collins while I was in college began drink New Belgum back in '88 or so. When we moved to TX in '94 it wasn't sold here so whenever I went home I loaded up the back of the truck and hauled that and Left Hand home.

    I am known to drink a Lone Star from time to time but my guts regret that the next day! Kinda like KBR chow...Oh!!! Gotta go!!!! MAKE WAY!!!

    Re: Beer Thread

    The Best:

    Bumble Bee: Only brewed for a couple of months in the summer and fermented with honey. Yum Yum.

    Stella Artois: Lovely nutty flavour, just before you go nuts.

    The Worst

    Kronenburg: It absolutely kills me, to the point where on my stag do I hung the Union Jack of the Eiffel tower in France to claim it for the Queen. The French police were very good about it as it was a non violent protest.

    Hogarden: Why try to turn a beer into a drink thats palatable for posh people who think that the bread line is the Que in bakery.

    Some beer brewed with chocolate that I rank in Brugge, I had to swim that one off in the fountain.

    Re: Beer Thread

    I love wheat beers:
    * Paulaner
    * Franzikaner
    * Pyramid Apricot (sounds weird, but it has a nice fruity flavor)
    * Corona doesn't fit the mold, but I drank a bunch on fun trips in Mexico during college and it reminds me of that

    Crap:
    * any high volume American beer
