I thought Coors had a distinct flavor of Donkey Piss, although the debate rages on if it is beer flavored piss or piss flavored beer.

The city government in Fort Collins consists of a bunch of drama queens. New Belgium Brewery is cool, and they should be sensitive about what goes into their beer, but I trust them to keep churning out a mass-produced micro-brew (yeah, I said it - Fat Tire is mass produced and it tastes like it)

Coors does not have a brewery in Fort Collins.

There are several other breweries here though. I drink Fort Collins water here every farking day. It's water. It's decent quality. This is a stupid story.

One of these days though we're gonna erect a gigantic dam on the Poudre and we're gonna make everyone downstream die of thirst and I will laugh.

Fat Tire is still pretty good - better than a lot of other micro-brews. So is their newer Shift lager in cans.

Is this going to be a beer snob thread?

Coors Banquet (along with Miller High Life) are the best cheap beers (i.e. available in a 30-pack) going, and I will happily drink either one all night. There.

While I agree with you to a certain extent, and actually have a soft spot in my heart for Coors Banquet, Icehouse is easily the best cheap beer. It's a fact.

I don't get how regular Coors can be good, while Coors Light is so terrible. But, again, it's scientific fact.

Why doesn't New Belgium just make up a batch of Rauchbier and call it a day?

When I was a kid, in the '60s my family lived downstream of the Coors brewery, on Clear Creek. Above the brewery, which Clear Creek runs through the middle of, the water is indeed "Rocky Mountain Spring Water". Below the brewery, however, the creek was a stinking polluted mess, devoid of fish. I doubt this is true now, but I bet the Coors family had to be forced by Libbo tree-hugger laws to clean it up because their past history indicates they certainly weren't going to do it on their own.

Only douchebag college republicans living off daddy's money drink Coors

I thought that Smokey, Coors, and even Bandits all went together...

Coors Light always has that used ashtray aftertaste anyways.

Nice of Subby not to call that swill beer, even in the tags!

Paging TheJoe03 to help me out here..

Colorado has some amazing beers already, but it's really what your preferences are.

I feel like they should just release a year's worth of special smokey brews and laugh all the way to the bank.

Seriously, I would definitely buy a beer made with smoked water. If they brew up some nice once in a lifetime dark malty beers like Porters and RIS they will make a killing. Put some on oak, put some in bourbon barrels, put some with vanilla, put some with cherries, collaborate with DFS for one, collaborate with Stone for another, and wait a year. Put most of it in bombers with wax on the cap, hold a release party to serve the rest kegged, and just rake in the money.

A segment from my favorite show called the word game. Kind of like password. One person knows the word and gives the other person hints to guess it, also, for the context of this skit, I should mention that the show is based in Canada

The word: Water

Red Green "This is something that everybody drinks"

Ranger Gord "Oh, beer"

Red "No, this has no flavor to it."

Gord "Oh, American beer?"

If we're talking Fort Collins breweries, I'm more of an Odell Brewing guy.

here, here. please save a seat for me. have enjoyed both since elementary school days. i'm usually sober these days but man back in the day i was highly self-destructive.

It's going to make Z lager extra smokey!

Agreed. Both of those are fine beers AFAIC.

Those saying Fat Tire is a good beer are crazy IMHO. If you want to have a great micro from Fort Collins, Easy Street Wheat is the way to go.

I'm in favor of anything that preserves the flavor of Ranger.

I swear the sheer smell of it does something to my brain akin to what catnip does to felines.

taste the rockies!

I haven't had a good rauchbier in far too long. Can anyone recommend a good one? Or a pub in the DC area that has/makes one?

Bruxellensis: taste the rockies!
