Recently had a friend send me the Stone Lukcy Basartd ale...
It was really good I'm a fan of the arrogant bastard series this one was just a blend of all three regular,double, and oaked. I didn't pick up on the oaked bastard on this but I'm sure w/out it the taste would have been different. It was great either way.
I've been a big pabst naysayer for years....but you know,its growing on me, and I'm willing to let bygones be bygones....
I'll go so far as to say its my go to canned beer these days.
Guess I gotta go grow a beard and go shopping for a fixie now
Oh..and tried Steelhead DIPA from Mad River....great beer, esp. at the price point Fishing reference ftw too
I picked up a sixer of Bristol's Beehive Honey Wheat, and it's great. Wheaty, so it's very light and foamy on the mouthfeel, but doesn't have the hefe banana/clove thing going. The honey contributes a mead-y sweetness. I'm not usually wicked fond of the sweet American wheat ales, but this one was very drinkable on a hot day.
i just turned 21 on tuesday and as far as beer is concerned the world is my oyster. iv never been much for drinking just to get drunk so i figured instead of buying a case of bud i would get some decent beers.
tuesday i got som Huma LupaLicious by Short's Brew. this is a Michigan brew, and since i am fom Michigan all the better. I really enjoyed this beer. It was a little on the bitter side, but it was good just to sip. I dont know the best way to describe it but i did like it and will try more from them.
today i got some Glissade from Sierra Nevada. Today was hot and humid and this beer was really refreshing. Also it is an easy drinker compared to the Huma Lupalicous
MI has some awesome breweries like Bells, Founders and Jolly Pumpkin. You should try some Bells Oberon and Bells Two Hearted.
I cant wait to visit my GF, cus her dad is an avid homebrewer and usually makes some really interesting stuff.
Great Lakes Brewing Co. Nosferatu. it's typically a seasonal fall beer (hence the vampire pic) but the brewpub has a "firkin thursday" event every week, with a special batch of beer. they decided to do some nosferatu last week, and still had some for the tap. got the growler filled, and it's damned good. i'm not big on IPA's, as they're to citrusy and dry, but this is an imperial IPA. i can tolerate it. lol.

IN the crappy canned beer kick I'm on for spring...tried Boxer Lager. Claims to be the cheapest beer available.
Goes in ok...but the morning after, not so good. Will be avoiding this beer
Going to the Twin Cities tomorrow...hope to pick up some sixers of stuff I can't get around here.
I'm really impressed with Peak Organic. I've tried their Nut Brown the other day and it was very, very good. I've tried their Red Ale previously and am looking forward to finding their Maple Oat Ale. They are not that obscure of a company unlike what many of you guys try, but I like it!

So many good looking beers in this thread... Being 18 sucks
anyway the *coolest* (but not my favorite) beer ive had recently is the Sierra Nevada Kellerwies. Too bad I ruined half of mine by leaving them in the fridge too long. Couldnt taste them after that.
over powering. 2x
Also got some Bell's Oberon, this stuff is fantastic also!
Wish my fiance didn't find it, I have one bottle left...

Last and final comment, don't waste your $ on the SA Latitude 48 Deconstruction 12 pack, I was very dissappointed!
Last Friday I picked up the Sierra Nevada Best of Beer Camp 12 pack. I honestly like every single beer in there and will probably pick up another 12er if they're still available. The Juniper Black is really good and hoppier than I thought and the Weizenbock is great.
