post #61 of 1979
I have only tried about 3 dozen different varieties of beer but I'll count myself into Beer-Fi. Tonight I tried Stone Arrogant Bastard Ale and although I generally tend to like stuff with more hop balance, it is some great stuff. Living in Colorado means having a lot of small breweries around. I still need to try more stuff from the local breweries, mainly Flying Dog, Odell, Great Divide, and New Belgium. Odell makes a great, surprisingly easy-to-drink IPA and the night I tried Great Divide DPA (Denver Pale Ale) I couldn't have just one. The best out of the readily available stuff to me is easily Guinness, and I don't even like stouts very much.

I tend to think that the beers coming out of New Belgium are way over-hyped. They're okay, but my experience has been people get really excited when someone brings over Fat Tire or a six pack of whatever else they make. In general Denver/Boulder is a very good place to be for beer.

Pyramid's IPAs are yummy. Rogue also makes great IPAs. If you can, try the IPA by, IIRC, Diamond Knot, or Diamondhead Knot brewery. Its outstanding! Easily the best IPA I've ever had. They are located in Mukilteo.

Mmm I love beer. Pyramid's Apricot Weizen is also very good. Their Hefe Weizen is not particularly great though. My favorite beer is probably Delirium Tremens. I don't really like Guinness by itself, but Irish car bombs are amazing.

Had a really good pilsner tonight...

Kramer, that looks like a very hoppy Pilsner, no? Does it taste like a hoppy IPA?


Anywho, I found a great place in Bellevue, WA that has 160 beers on tap!!

Kostritzer, 1st column 4th row from the bottom.

I need to hit the international beer shop more often, so far only good beer I've had is 1 bottle of that.

Aaaand a point to you!

I kind of cheated, I lived in Germany for 6 months so it wasn't really foreign beer.

Could you bring much back though ?

Ah, now I look I also see Fürstenberg, although imo that wasn't that great, I had higher expectations.

Well thanks a lot guys, I just found out the international beers shop has a website and delivery is pretty cheap...

Well I think I'll go with a 6 pack of Kostritzer as I quite liked it, you guys seems to like Fullers ESB and Duvel so I'll get 4 packs of them and a 6 pack of Little Creatures Pale Ale maybe for something domestic.

I love the stouts, porters, and bitters...

lately, I have been drinking fat tire, arrogant bastard, fat bastard, er, ...and suchlike, and came to the bleary realisation that I was drinking myself!

No Way I am going to try Dead Guy ale!!!

Hahaha, funny. Dead Guy is great though. I've had plenty and I'm still around to tell the story.

I am Awesome!

So today I was at work, driving around Pennington, and I saw my old boss who owns the premier gourmet liquer, wine and beer store in the tri county area. And you know what? He offered me my old job back !! I am going to be the assistant to the beer manager, who is retireing in the not so near future! Not only does this place have the best high end wine and spirits but it has over 650 different beers!!!!! And I get to sell it, all day! Buy it, order it, stock it, drink it...touch it....Top shelf beer will be everywhere!!! I'm so excited that I busted out a one year old Orval, but not before I drank a St. Peters Porter
I just can't believe it! It's not set in stone yet, but they need me, and I need them
WOOOOOOOOPIEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
OOOOOOOHHHYEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAHH!!

Count me in! I usually drink Hefeweizen when available. I'm beginning to like tecate also. I guess it's an acquired taste, since it's the only beer readily available at the Long Beach Grand Prix. Sorry Heineken drinkers, but I can't stand this beer.
