/without a Leinie in the mix, all you got is less


Leines has been phoning it in the past few years, i think since miller and coors merged, blue moon has been their pseudo-craft beer darling for whatever reason.

Skarekrough:Dry Cider is for people who hate themselves and feel the need to punish themselves for no good reason.

Actually I did a gallon experiment last year of dry cider and handed off to a buddy who enjoyed it thoroughly.


Ahh, cider talk. I was hoping the article would sneak a cider review in there -- they do sell it right alongside the beer for whatever reason -- but no alas... I'll probably end up trying the Fall Woodchuck this year, anyway.

Tawnos: The_Tawnos: The_Sponge: IMHO, it is the best pumpkin beer out there.

Southern Tier Pumking rules the pumpkin beer category.

Another good one.


BTW, have you tried Howe's Sound pumpkin ale>

I wish I were a beer snob, but in general, I hate beer.

Then again, I've only had Bud Light years ago and whiff of Old Milwaukee from my alcoholic uncle's breath.

Recommendations?

zobear: Anyone tried a Bob's 47 from Boulevard yet? I remember back in the day when Boulevard sucked (very early 90s), and then while I was away from KC, they figured out how to make some really kickass beer.

Weyerbacher sounds interesting. CO has a great selection, but we definitely miss out on the regional gems as well.


KC represent!

The new 80-acre rocks. I've probably had Bob's 47, but like most Boulevard it didn't stick out. Zon was pretty good this summer--nice and spicy.

I usually prefer Schlafly as far as Missouri brewers go. Yes, I feel ashamed.

I think the Boulevard master brewer and I simply have vast differences in taste.

Smokestack series is mostly pretty good, though. The much-hyped chocalate ale was stupid and awful, and insanely expensive when you could find it. Not as bad as Sam Adams Hazel Brown, though, which tastes like an even sweeter version of those shiatty Dum-Dum chocolate suckers. So gross. Avoid at all costs.

/ $5 Tank 7 on tap at The Brick FTW.

Have a snort of some local moonshine, it is around. then have some tea or lemonade or cider or something that tases good. Moonshine then some pie would be my recommendation.

It could stand to be a little drier, but the spices are dead on. Quite tasty.

Yeah- not buying cheap crap designed to make you drunk and nothing else.

Try a pale ale (don't go as far as an IPA), a porter or stout, and an amber (ale or lager). That'll give you a pretty decent range of beer styles. The Pale is hoppy, the porter/stout is gonna be malty, and the amber will be a middle of the road balance. There are variations within each category, of course, but those will generally give you a good assortment.

Does your grocery store have a make your own six pack option? Those are great for trying out new beers, give them a shot. And hey, you're only out ten bucks at most.

Saying "Best Fall Beer" is like saying "Best punch in the nuts" It all sucks.

I love beer, but if there are two beers I can't stand: IPAs and Fall Beers.

Try tracking down some black or barrel-aged IPAs.

I do agree that IPAs with nothing to offer but hops are lame. A double/imperial IPA that manages to achieve balance and complexity, though, is a thing of beauty.

Black IPAs:
http://www.ratebeer.com/beerstyles/black-ipa/114/

I can vouch for Mountain Standard on that page. It's great. Seasonal, though, IIRC. Try again in 6 months. Any of the others are there are probably very good.

No category on Ratebeer for barrel-aged IPAs. Just google it.

mudpants: fallingcow: WinoRhino: mudpants: But I want BEER, a beer that tastes like beer. ya hear?

When I am feeling that way: Weihenstephaner Original. Beer. Simple. Perfect.

Stone's Double Bastard.

It's the beeriest beer that ever beered. It's the beer that beers drink in the fine taverns and hobo tents of beersville, beersylvania. It's like a farking beer singularity.

I will try that !


I'll just go ahead and say it...

Southern TIer Brewing actually does a pumpkin beer in the fall, and it is pretty spectacular (and I normally do not have anything to do with "fruit" beers outside of some lambics and Ephemere). I also give the founders props for starting up a brewery in the heart of Chautuaqua county. They are chest deep in the middle of Bud and Miller country back there. I never would have expected a brewery to start up and not only survive but also thrive. I just wish they had started up before I moved out of the state!

Oh yeah, I am a serious beer snob. I look down upon beers like Bud and Miller, so much so that I will pay for bottled water rather than drink free Bud or Miller. With that being said, I do not look down upon people who drink those beers. I believe that people should drink what they want and be happy. What I do look down upon, though, are people who are unwilling to try something new. I just cannot fathom people who will not try a new beer (and far too many people I knew back home were like that). Do not get me wrong, I am not saying that you should try some super exotic beer that runs $50 a bottle, but if you see a new tap in your local watering hole, be brave. Have a pour. Or if a new beer is stocked in your local grocery store and the price is reasonable. Give it a whirl. What have you got to lose? If you do not like it, then fine. You can back to drinking what you normally prefer. But what if you do like it? Maybe it is better than your normal beer. But, you will never know unless you try it.

Founders Breakfast Stout (fall seasonal) is the best beer available ever forever. Bought a case Sunday and I might get another tomorrow.

They missed Weyerbacher PunKing.
And even though it is a poor Oktoberfest, totally need the Spaten Oktoberfest. It tastes the way lagers should taste all the time, not just fall.

Weyerbacher PunKing Imperial Pupmkin Ale.

Not usually a big fan of Sam Adams, but their Oktoberfest is damn good stuff.

And I don't care what time of year it is, Leinenkugel's Sunset Wheat is one of the best beers ever made.

I like a good local beer - Blackstone Brewing Company's "Nut Brown Ale". Their "American Pale Ale" is good too.

/Look them up

Can't drink anymore due to migraines so you can all go to HELL.

It's the season for it, after all.

Well, late to the party, as usual. But, as a brewer with a batch of Märzen currently lagering, I got a kick...etc.

Oh, and WinoRhino, nevermind that cider nonsense, make mead! ;)

Agreed. My earlier post saying Bud (NOT Bud Light!) was good for all seasons was made in all seriousness.

HOWEVER....I do like trying new things, and if I had my druthers, it would be some kind of stout. ANY kind of stout, but preferably...

www.genx40.com 

Though I can't find it anywhere in Maine.

Or...
