ALE, That’s the stuff to drink, for fellows whom it hurts to think.
-A.E. Housman

Refreshing on a hot afternoon, relaxing after a hard day, all around delicious and intoxicating, brewed since the dawn of history,

quaffed by Vikings, sipped by scholars, tossed back seven jars at a sitting by Enkidu,

Hailed as a hallmark of the civilized man since ancient times, along with the baking of bread and the wearing of clothes, it is the ubiquitous human beverage,
BEER!


Now, introductions aside, what brews do you fine folks favor? Don’t be shy, even Pabst has it’s place. I was extremely fortunate during my college days to find myself in possession of all the makings for a 15 gallon capacity kegerator while at the same time being but a few blocks from a marvelous microbrewery. For several glorious years at the end of the day I could grab a pounder off the rack and tilt the tap set in the front of a full sized fridge to draw a healthy pint which I could then enjoy on the back deck. Life was good. We of the house would vote for what the next keg would be filled with and it usually came out to be either the blonde ale or the scotch ale. The Boundary Bay Scotch remains one of my all time favorite brews. If I'm just nosing through the beer aisle I'll probaly grab a case of Henry's though occasionally I'll find I'm in the mood for a Rolling Rock (33) or a Red Stripe (Hooray beer!)

and just for fun lets also show off funny beer pics of funny beer.

    Being from Oregon, I like a lot of the local microbrews.

    McMenamins Hammerhead
    A classic Northwest pale ale and McMenamins top selling beer. This rich chestnut colored gem is a model of harmony between hops and malted barley. Hammerhead's signature Cascade hop nose and intense hopped flavor blend nicely with the caramel tones from the crystal malt. This beer has a vocal following. To run out is an unforgivable sin.


    Widmer and Henry Weinhard's Hefeweizen
    hef_top.jpg
    Our Flagship - America's Original Hefeweizen
    A golden unfiltered wheat beer that is truly cloudy and clearly superb. Ever since Widmer introduced Hefeweizen to America in 1986, ours has been the standard by which all other Hefeweizens are judged.


    Rogue: Tracktown IPA and Honey Orange Wheat, and a few others
    Honey Orange Wheat: Honey Orange Wheat is an unfiltered wheat beer and has flavors of honey and orange balanced with a nice medium-sweet malt character. It is medium bodied with no harsh bitterness and a nice honey-orange finish. It is made from Northwest Two-Row and Wheat Malts; Willamette Hops; #48 Oregon Wildflower Honey, Orange Juice, and Free Range Coastal Waters. It is currently available on draft.

    Tracktown IPA
    Offering a hop-heads paradise, this unfiltered Northwest-Style India Pale Ale introduces a big floral hop character to the aroma, flavor and finish. Hops, Hops, Hops from front to back but nicely offset with a malty richness that prevents this ale from being overbearing. Tracktown is made from 100% Floor Malted Maris Otter, 100% Northwest Amarillo Hops, Free Range Coastal Water, and absolutely No Chemicals, Additives, or Preservatives.


    Deschutes (Black Butte Porter especially)
    Black Butte Porter, crafted from chocolate and crystal malts, is Deschutes Brewery’s flagship brand. With a rich and distinctive flavor, this porter has enjoyed a loyal and passionate following since its first pint in 1988.


    Oh and fuck you guys but I like Corona.

    edit: Damn, beat'd for Black Butte Porter!

    I'm so sick of Fat Tire. I can't even drink it anymore. Waaaaaay too nutty. I like Belgian's other beers, though. 1554's great.

    Other stuff I dig:

    Murphy's Stout. Much smoother than Guinness Draft.
    Kirin Ichiban. Who knew the Japanese could pull off a decent ale?
    Prohibition Ale.
    Pyramid Hefeweizen.
    Anchor Steam. Not terribly exotic, I know, but you can find it anywhere around here which is a plus.
    Negra Modelo. I don't like Tecate or Corona; this is the only Mexican beer I like.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    He'Brew is a pretty good beer. Though I can't decide if I prefer Genesis Ale or Messiah Gold.

    I am currently in the middle of the World Beer Tour at the bar Old Chicago, wherein you must drink 110 different beers to get a t-shirt and your name up on the wall. I just finished the Summer Tour and got a shirt for that but I had to drink both Foster's and Heineken Light so I'm not sure if it was worth it.

    However Leinekugel's Sunset Whet was part of that and that beer is jawsome because it tastes like Fruit Loops.

    Also if you are in the mood for a serious drink, try OLD CHUB. It is eight percent in the style of scottish ale and is fucking delicious.

    Oh I can't pass up a chance to praise the beers that I enjoy. So here goes:

    Blue Tongue Lager - Pure sex in a bottle. One of my favourite beers at the moment.

    James Squires - have a very nice selection of beers across the entire spectrum, lagers, pale ales, stouts. I prefer the Golden and Amber ales.

    Boags St. George - This beer is very odd in that it almost disappears down your throat. The easiest to drink beer I've ever seen. You'll wonder what happened to all the beer, till you walk into a door after downing a case. Smooth.

    Trappist Westvleteren...oh my so damn expensive but so damn good. This is undeniably the best beer in the world, and the price shows. These are from an actual monastery that only brews a very very small number a year, and there is a waiting list to get it. The good news? You can buy some online at ebay.

    Shiner is a great choice-but I got burned out on it being from Texas and all, it's really what everyone around here drinks. I had about 60 bottles of it stocked in my fridge at my apartment because my girlfriend only drank that and I got burned out fairly quickly on it because of it. Don't get me wrong though, it's a damn fine brew.

    Hefe-Weizens are my chosen beer though, and there are just so many damn good ones. That and an orange peel on a hot summer day makes even the shittiest of days the greatest. So refreshing and so delicious.

    Made by accident. It was supposed to just flavour some oak barrels that where going to be used for making whisky. It was going to be thrown away. However someone had a fly taste of it and it was saved.

    Praise Be.

    The first sip I had of it I reacted rather negatively to it. But as I had some food and tried it gain a miracle occurred.

    Yes, a Miracle.

    The beer. . . adapts to the flavour of the food your eating like no other that I've tasted. It has cameleon like properties to blend and complement that it is really the ideal beer to have with food.

    Testify.

    It's also nice drunk just straight as well, it's just got such a distinctive flavour, and each bottle does genuinely have it's own taste, that it does take little getting use to.

    Oh, I also like Deuchers IPA, Badger Tanglefoot and basically anything that comes out of Yorkshire that isn't evilly nitro kegged.

    I'm not a big beer drinker, except when pizza's involved, but man I love me some Chimay, brewed in actual Belgian dirt by actual Belgian monks in the actual Belgium, as opposed to all those fake Belgiums lying around. It's spicy and not too heavy and packs a ridiculous punch - a single 32oz bottle got me more deliciously wasted than all the gin martinis and Scotches I've ever had.

    Dogfish Head I believe is the IPA I go for now... not certain that that's the one, there is another with a similar name I might be confusing.

    Hobgoblin is good too. definitely.

    I love wheat beers and Ayinger's Hefeweizen is fantastic. It's imported and fantasticly over-priced for $8 a 16 oz. bottle, but damn is it good. Anyone who's up in the DC/NoVA area can get it at Brickskeller's near Dupont Circle, DC.

    AyingerBrauWeisse.jpg

    A Russian beer I used to quaff liberally was Baltika 9. They have 0 through 10, but 9 is the strongest. Guaranteed a minimum 12% alcohol by volume. That was a promise on the Russian labels, I never saw that repeated on the US labels.

    baltika-nr-9.jpg

    Edit: Translation on the ad: We mixed vodka with beer for you!!! *ah hah...*

    And for those of you who love Guiness, I bring you Young's Double Chocolate Stout. It has a smooth chocolately after taste that isn't too sweet. It makes for a great dessert beer.

    I don't think I could take a class without sparring. That would be like a class without techniques. Sparring has value not only as an important (necessary) step in applying your techniques to fighting, but also because it provides a rush and feeling of elation, confidence, and joyful exhaustion that can only be matched by ... oh shit, I am describing sex again.

    Favorite beer of all time? It has got to be:

    skullsplitter_med.jpg

    I love me some dark ales, and this one blew me away when I first had it. It has a very rich, almost chocolatey flavor to it, and goes down smoooth. Packs a punch too. Plus, it has a picture of a friggin' Viking on it, so there.

    Otherwise, it's usually a mix of Guinness Stout, Killian's Irish Red, or Sam Adam's Porter.

    I understand that a lot of people love their IPA's, but for the life of me, I can't get into them. Stone, Magic Hat, Dogfish Head 90 Minute.....just oddly bitter, with that off-putting perfumey aftertaste. *shivers*

    I'll second Paulaner. Their hefe is quite nice, in contrast to the Shiner hefe, which is absolute sour shit.

    My favorites right now:

    del%20tremens.jpg
    This one almost has a hint of BBQ sauce if your tastes are keen. Well, maybe not BBQ exactly, but I definitely felt anything from taragon and brown sugar to very light hints of something like Worchestershire sauce. It's crazy, and you almost have to have a very defined pallette to enjoy it, but it's one of the better, more common Belgian-types out there. Very strong, though; your liver will not be your buddy if you drink as much of this stuff as I do.

    guldrakfls300.jpg
    I can't even begin to describe the rich tastes available in this one. It comes across like a Barley Wine, tasting like any great unfiltered beer should. Cloudy, dark, and heavy, I can't recommend this one enough.

    maudite.jpg
    This is what I'm drinking right now, as in this very moment, so let me take you on a journey. It's French for "the damned," or some such stuff. Another Belgian, it's got an almost overpowering scent coming from a nice, frothy head that smells strongly of the yeast and alcohol, but it drinks smooth as silk with a sweet flavor. Tastes like tart fruits with some traditional spices thrown in. Light on the malt, but you can definitely taste it. Letting it sit, it's still smooth, but feels heavier than it did initially. Finishes with a long, dry aftertaste, strong on the alcohol. Head sticks around for a while, which I really like.

    Overall a good Belgian, but you probably won't get much out of it if you're not a beer snob.

    Seriously though, ALocksly, I was going to make this exact same thread today.

    Gooey's list of good beer

    Spaten Optimator - A true man's beer.
    Maredsous 8 - There's a little known beer mix with this one - the "Ridgeslide" 1 part Ace Pear, 2 parts Maredsous 8, interesting flavor change, tastes sweet but retains a lot of the rich flavor of the beer
    Hobgoblin
    Paulaner Hefeweizen - my personal favorite hefe.
    Blue Moon
    Guiness
    Murphy's Stout
    La Fin du Monde
    Chimay "Blue Label" - It's brewed by monks, and all the profits go to charity. In other words, God wants you to drink this beer.
    Duvel
    Lowenbrau
    Most of what Flying Dog brews
    Fat Tire
    Avalanche (? I think that's the name. Haven't had this in a loooong time. It's a great microbrew from Co.)
    New Castle
    Shiner Bock - This is THE Texan beer.
    Banks - This is an unbelievable Carribian Pilsner, puts Red Stripe to shame. It's brewed in Barbados (in old-style painted bottles! Sweet!), but good luck finding it elsewhere. I'm not sure if they even export the stuff at all.


    There are lots of others I'm probably not thinking of. Or if you want, join the club and brew your own. I love beer.

    I tend to shy away from Dogfish, Sam Adams, and Sierra Nevada brews, they never taste "right" to me, even though they're popular breweries.


    Edit - Also:

    Purple Haze - This is a standard American Hefeweizen blended with a raspberry puree. It's a good dessert beer.
    Franziskaner
    Leinenkugel's Sunset Wheat
    Young's Double Chocolate Stout
    New Belgium's Skinny Dip - This is a summer seasonal that is a very citrus-y American Hefeweizen.

    Edit^2 -

    Basically, anything Unibroue brews. I mentioned La Fin du Monde earlier, Maudite is fantastic also.
    And finally (for now) Moose Drool. Fan-freakin-tastic.

    I've never had the Leinie's Sunset Wheat, but I'll look into that, as I like much of their other stuff. It is a very good beer for the price. Pabst I'll drink occasionally, it is not awesome, but it is probably one of the best really cheap beers you can find. And sometimes I'm just in the mood for cheap beer.

    If you find yourself in Sarajevo ever, go to the Sarajevsko brewery, get yourself a nice meal, and a bottle of Sarajevsko (or if you like wine, some Vronac). Sarajevsko is, in my opinion, and that of everyone I know who's tried it, one of the best beers ever.

    Don't ever drink Pilsner Urquell, ever. Ever. It is about the skunkiest beer I've had the displeasure of drinking. One of my friends tried it in Prague after trying it in the US, thinking it must be better at it's place of origin, but it was not to be so.

    My friends and I have found, that one of the best beer's to go with pizza, is Sapporo. Hofbräu is a nice easy beer to drink, and you can find the weisbier and their normal house ale here in the states. If you go to Munich, hit the Hofbräuhaus, so you can order liters of the stuff, and watch the waitresses bring it out 7 liters at a time. It is so cool.

    everyone's already named all the truly awesome beers. My current fave is 1554, Trippel, and 90 shilling. Odell's Amber Ale is a favorite too.

    A few months ago, I bought one of those homebrew kits, and I love it to death. I've made Amber Ale, a porter and a Dos Equis clone so far.
