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'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.
I like their Hop Devil better than their Hop Wollup. The Wild Devil is just a mess though IMO. Most agree of those I speak to that Storm King is their best.

Hoppiest beer I've had is probably Smutttynose Finest Kind but I thought it was waaaaay to bitter.

I haven't had Hop Devil. But, I had Wild Devil when I was in Minneapolis a few months ago. Interesting taste. But, I don't really care for soured beers.

This Hop Wollop packs a hop punch. Even hoppier than Hop Stoopid.

Hi guys...have any of you ever tried orange slices in your beer? I was just turned on to this ...first was with a Blue Moon, it's quite good with many beers! People put Limes in Corona, heck...this could be a nice summer drink...

I went to a Hard Rock Cafe in the Bahamas and asked for a Kalik with oranges...the bartender never heard of it. Well, he liked it and is naming a drink - Kaco's Kalik after me, so he said...I almost want to go back to see if I can order one!

Beer is good!

Finally found Surly Furious on tap. I'm eating and drinking at Sheffield's Beer Garden in north Chicago. The drive was a bitch. It's right in a college campus. Parking is horrible.

I was wondering when this thread would get snipped. It finally did. Sadwalk

I'll have to pick up some booze for the Giants/Cowboys football party I'm hosting on Sun. night. I'm not sure what I'll get or what others will bring. I may pick up Oktoberfest seasonal beer.

BIG score today. There is a beer/wine store in SA that is going out of business. 65% off everything. Got 8 bottles of DFH 120 . 2 6ers of Victory Storm King for $4 each. 4 bombers of Hop Stoopid and Lagunitas Sumpin Sumpin for $3 each . I will be going back next week on Tuesday for the final day to buy him out.

drinking devils dancer triple ipa from founders....holy crap i didn't realize this was 12% abv... pours a minimal head... cloudy but i am cool with cloudy beers... has a cherry taste, kinda reminds me of 90min in some small ways, but this one is delicious... kinda syrupy, sweet with a nice crisp bitterness at the end.... quite tasty...i wish i had more drool

this was after meeting a buddy in the bistro which i got a free stone ipa... then i paid $2 for a fish tail poisidian(sp?) russian imp stout which was fantastic... then i had a bomber of red rocket ale from bear republic which i got for free from stone... so yeah, this 12% abv devils dancer is going to be a sipper laugh out loud
