Don't you know that Fark stands for Freepers, Ale, Retards, and Kittens?

we really do need a beer tap

What an interesting story - just list five random beers you could find in a supermarket and pretend it has anything to do with anything.

A Little Sumpin Sumpin is one of the best beers to come out of Laganitas, which is really saying something considering their track record of excellence.

Pumpking from Southern Tier might be the star of the onslaught of (usually bad) pumpkin ales.

I'm savoring the last of the Dogfish Head Festina Peche and biding my time until the winter porters and stouts.

All we would do is post funny beer commercials and pictures of scantily clad baristas in it.

/wait, that might be a good thing...

Rolling Rock is the only American beer worth consuming.

I grew up in Nor-Cal, so Sierra Nevada is like mothers milk to me. Alas, I am poor this week so it's probably going to be cheap Trader Joes beer.

i really don't like most beers. but i recently tried sam adams octoberfest, & it was decent. i'll also drink sunset honey wheat, or guinness if that's all there is. any suggestions for other beers i should try?
 
2012-09-01 03:04:00 PM  
Not American, but a great smooth beer for the last weekend of summer. Drinking one right now, in fact.

While I fully appreciate hearty beers, barbecue calls for something lighter yet still great tasting. Something you can drink a lot of without feeling bloated or terribly drunk.

Miller Lite fits the bill every time.
 
2012-09-01 03:04:56 PM  
My BBQ beers are Victory's Summer Love and Dogfish Head's 60 minute (or was it 90?) Light IPAs that don't overpower the food you're eating.

Anyone try Dogfish's Punkin' Ale yet?
 
2012-09-01 03:12:42 PM  
Any good cider recommendations? I've never been a big beer person-- of course I like beer, but cider is just so...YUM!
 
2012-09-01 03:12:46 PM  
It's raining. You can't drink beer while it'a raining.

Aventinus. If you don't like that, beer isn't for you...

It is so darn tasty, and the Little Sumpin Wild is excellent as well. I love that stuff. New Belgium's Red Hoptober seasonal is very good and would go great with slabs of grilled meat. It makes me hopeful that companies are starting to drop back from the "more hops=better!" thinking.
 
2012-09-01 03:16:22 PM  
SN Pale Ale
Bell's Two Hearted
NB Fat Tire
Lagunitas Lil Sumpin Sumpin
Oskar Blues Mama's Little Yella Pils

That's actually not too bad a list. I'll be drinking a Black Butte 24 today, though.
 
2012-09-01 03:17:23 PM  
I wish American craft brewers would come out with an IPA. Preferably one with EXTREME hops.

You might like Harpoon Imperial IPA.

I asked this in another beer thread, but it was in the business tab so I will never get a reply.

Can anyone here recommend a good rauchbier, or any pubs in the DC area that have/make one?
 
2012-09-01 03:22:01 PM  
List is missing Victory lager.
 
2012-09-01 03:22:52 PM  
I live a block from a Rogue Brewery Ale house, so I get most of beer from them, wish I could find some Anchor Steam around here though...

/Astoria Or...
 
2012-09-01 03:24:25 PM  
I like a good IPA/APA, but the friggin' "let's see how much hops we can cram in our" microbrew arms race is juvenile.

Dog Schwarz by Flying Dog Brewery is good. They're in MD, so it should be available in DC...

Wow, Sierra Nevada AND Fat Tire? How overrated can we get?

Right. The instant a beer sells well, it is no longer worthy, right? It's the "Sam Adams" syndrome. Bottom line is all three are very good.

Which reminds me, anyone tried Sam Adams Fat Jack? One of the better pumpkin beers I've had recently. Kinda hard to find actually.

Yep. It's just like the Scoville Unit race that hot sauces have. "Hey, let's turn our tasty food into some kind of endurance test to prove which moron is the manliest!" Way to completely miss the point of your own product, guys.

Anyway, just bought myself the Harpoon fall sampler. Their pumpkin ale is rather delicious.
 
2012-09-01 03:36:20 PM  
Duquesne pilsner FTW , if you can find it.
 
2012-09-01 03:36:58 PM  
Fark that I am not getting anything over $13.99 that come in 24 packs for guests. I'll drink something good for myself.

I was half trolling.

I stand by my statement on Fat Tire, though. It's New Belgium's worst beer.
And I have no freaking idea why it would be a "Labor Day BBQ" beer. I'd rather have a 1554 for a BBQ, for crying out loud. It's a dark beer in color, but actually rather light in flavor and I think it goes better with things like steak.

You can't deny that the list reads like someone just discovered the section for beer that there aren't giant ad campaigns for in the supermarket.

/I actually do think those are mediocre beers
//not because they're well-known, just don't think they're that good
///prefer stouts and lagers
 
2012-09-01 03:45:48 PM  
Though I grew up in N. Calif, am a huge fan of beer, and even went to college just a few miles from the Sierra Nevada brewery, I never liked the stuff.
Sam Adams is my go-to beer for almost any occasion. Man that stuff is delicious. It's not trendy and doesn't have a name like Supa-Triple-Hop-Daddy-Hound's-Ass-IPA, and they don't put cilantro or some other weird ingredient in it, but it's great beer.
