      I haven't had a new beer recently.

      I need to go to Brouwers again soon to try some new stuff.

      There are many great choices for beer in this thread, keep it up!

      Got some Bell's 8000 at home that I scored in a trade. Should have some more fun stuff coming in the mail next week.

      Real Ale's Full Moon Rye and Barnyard Brown tonight. The rye is outstanding, the brown is average.


      Sent out a bunch of Saint Arnolds Divine Reserve 5 on trade for some interesting craft brews... should have some fun stuff later this week.

      I lived in Michigan for a while and the Bells Brewery ( in Kalamazoo i think) puts out pretty good stuff. Lager of the Lakes is good and their summer brew Oberon is good too. Its like Blue Moon, you gotta put an orange in it to make taste right. I dont normally drink beer with fruit in it. But it was good.

      Last night had a Clipper City Heavy Seas - Below Deck, Barley Wine style ale.


      Enjoyed it to the last drop. The only thing disappointing was watching the last drop leave the glass.

      Two of them, thanks to my brewer and beer guru friend:

      Ommegang: Three Philosophers

      New Belgium: Mothership Wit

      And both are just . First domestic white for me, much milder than the Belgian ones, less spicey, but man...sooo goood...

      And that Ommegang, like all of there brews...just delicious...

      My $0.02 and my two offerings...

      Have been having to travel down to Ft Collins to get it because it was only being test marketed, but it appears that it is being disrtibuted on a larger scale. I have seen it at a few different places now. Makes me happy, becasue I love it!
      I drive by the windmills up here in wyoming that power their brewery too

      The local AF base started carrying Yuengling... I've had the Lager previously, but picked up some of their Black and Tan and it's pretty tasty.

      I found this beer at the European deli I normally shop at. It's what you'd expect from quality European lagers, smooth and strong...

      I had several new beers this weekend


      Kashmir IPA
      Clipper City's IPA
      Bell's Old Ale
      and funny you mentioned New Glaurious because the best new beer I had this weekend, hands down, New Glaurious Bourbon Barrel Bock. I HAVE to get my hands on some more of that!

      I'm not a Sam Adams fan, but I decided to pick up their Octoberfest brew a few weeks ago and was really impressed! I've been picking it up as much as possible before they stop brewing it for the season.

      Went to Destin a couple weeks ago, went back to McGuire's Irish Pub, instead of having the Irish Wake I went for one of their home-brewed beers, The Irish Red. They don't bottle it, but they sure should. Very good.

      Oberon is a a full on cult up here!

      I recently went to Ireland and had a guinness special brew called North Star. it's not available in the states, but it was incredibly smooth, especially the finish.

      I've got a 6 of this I just picked up... I'm a fan of Damn Sam's special beers, but have yet to have this one...

      Flying Dog's Double Dog DIPA (very good... nice hops!)
      Bell's K-Zoo Stout
      Duck Rabbit's Milk Stout
      Independence's Bootlegger Brown

      I like this stuff too. I have been trying as much different Octoberfest beers as I can before they stop brewing them.

    26. 10-01-2007 05:30 PM #96
      I saw that the other night, I'll have to try it.

    27. 10-01-2007 11:15 PM #97
      I picked up a few different St-Ambroise beers this weekend, my favorite was the Apricot Wheat Beer, but the Pumpkin Ale wasn't bad either.

      Yay for local microbrews!

      I'm lovin' the Autumn brews! This is the first time really experimenting with them and really finding out a lot about the beer world. We have a Trader Joe's and love mixing a 6 pack from their small collection of brews. My wife picked up a bottle of Kennebunkport Pumpkin Ale about a week ago with 5 other beers in the 6 pack.

      I finally got around to opening it up this past Sunday while sitting on my back porch watching some NFL games and really enjoyed it. Nice pumpkin spice flavor that wasn't over powering. This is my first pumpkin ale of the season so I can't really compare it to any others but definitely one that I'm going to pick up again just as soon as I can get to the store.

      Any other pumpkin ale's that people could recommend?

      Try Dogfish Head's if you like a larger beer... It comes in right @ 7%...


      Heard great things about South Hampton's, Southern Tier, Wyerbacher's Imperial Pumpkin(g), Brooklyn Post Road, Smutty Nose, never had Wild Goose...
