Thread Details

I've given my opinion in many places about the beer's i've tasted. Might as well have a thread about it. Feel free to add.

Currently having a Shiner Blonde.

A bit too light for my tastes, but a good Spring/Summer lager. Light, crisp, not too hoppy. Kind of like a hefeweisen without all the yeast. I tasted a little lemon at the first taste. Prett good. On a scale of 1 to 10, i'd give it a 7.

I can't say I've had it either... weird huh? Actually, I went through a phase where I hated all pumpkin ales... now I like certain ones.

Methinks it was not an accidental puncture, which gave you an excuse to drink it. Wink

D'oh! Well, you could've thrown it in the freezer for 1/2 hr. to chill it a bit. Cool Or pour it in a frozen glass. Speaking of which, does anyone keep an empty beer mug in the freezer so that it's really cold?

I have 2 of those mugs with liquid in the middle that are supposed to used for being frosted out of the freezer.

Cask fest this weekend in NYC! I'll probably be at Jimmy's 43 tomorrow hoping they didn't sell out of Black Ops tonight.

Had a couple of new beers recently:

Finally sampled the Pretty Things American Darling lager on draft. It was fairly good, nice and easy drinking. A little strong at 7% but you wouldn't know it from the flavor. I would drink it again, but it is pretty expensive for what it is.

Had the Harpoon Leviathan IPA this weekend again after my original mix up with Imperial Pilsner. Not bad at all, but not one of my favorite double IPA's either.

Saw the Sierra Southern Hemisphere Fresh Hop Ale on tap this weekend also. Looks like it just came out, but I haven't seen it in bottles yet. Looking forward to grabbing more of these when I do see them.

I usually have 2 pint glasses in the freezer upside down. Some will tell you that you shouldn't drink from frozen glasses. But, I've never noticed anything negative from the way I do it. Anything that touches my beer is washed with odorless dish soap.

I see. I thought about putting a pint glass or 2 in my freezer.

I don't see what's wrong w/ doing that, as long as you don't try to lick it and risk your tongue getting stuck to the glass. laugh out loud

ASG, enjoy cask fest in NYC. Too bad I'll have missed it by a couple weeks. Sadwalk

Grabbed 4 bottles of 2008 Alaskan Smoked Porter while out in San Diego... looking forward to drinking those! Got PlinyE, Hop Juice, some Ballast Point, 9/9/9 (thanks Matt!), Alaskan Stout, and a nice Carmenere while out there as well.

Oh and an AB tap handle (60% off, thanks Matt!) and 2L growler (like $8 incl. glass and fill)!

hop juice is decent but not a standout beer...i almost worked at that brewery, but it was too far of a commute for $10 an hour...stone is much closer and a lot better deals! Whee glad you were able to get those bottles still...not too many know about that little shop in poway, they have a decent selection, but a little pricey.

I think I'm heading over to Taylor Brewing for dinner tonight. They are only 2 miles from my hotel and have their own beers along with some guest taps.

it doesn't take much to ship beer... last time i shipped i used a "singles" case box and just put a single wrap of bubblewrap around each bottle...though i did put a layer of wrap on top and on bottom of each bottle...works awesome...as long as the bottles can't really move, there won't be breakage...
I picked up some Kalik in the Bahamas this summer...wrapped them in my clothes and into my check-in baggage. During the flight I started having visions of them exploding, Got to my home airport, no luggage, found out it was detained in Atlanta. I was a wreck til I got my bag back...They ended up making it safely...

I'm having zero luck so far finding Surly here in the Chicago area. Sam's Spirits has a keg of it though.

While there I bought a 6 pack of Victory Hop Wollup. Brian said Victory is a solid brewer. He also said this was an APA which I thought was odd considering the name. I just cracked one open. Holy hops!! This may be one of the hoppiest beers I've ever had. It's 8.5% abv. Very tasty. I like it.
