I hope subby realizes it is a three-day weekend.

Well, sure.  I mean, you'll have to slow down a little, but you could probably get by with only 100
 
2014-05-23 02:13:39 PM  
Well... 50 beers anyway.

Brewery: Hair of the Dog Brewing Company
City: Portland, Ore.
Description: Hair of the Dog is one of those wildly creative, boutique breweries that specializes in bottle-conditioned beers that improve with age. These beers are investments in the future. If that's not frustrating enough, they love to produce beer styles that most of us have never heard of. It's not the most accessible beer out there, and Adam might not be your first choice if you're new to the craft beer game, but it's a brew that beer drinkers can strive to grow into. Drink it kind of warm,
and let the notes of chocolate and leather (yes, leather) conquer your palate.

this is a phenomenal beer.  I imagine most responses will be "i don't want to drink a beer that tastes like leather."

Though to be fair, chocolate leather is the most delicious kind.

Posting an unfinished list?  In my opinion, Subby should be flogged for this.
 
2014-05-23 04:30:40 PM  
List is ok, but already too many IPAs.  I know that is anathema to say, but I am burnt out on everyone trying to "out-hop" each other.

Pro-tip: don't drink them then.  IPAs are supposed to be very hoppy.  Drink a regular ol' pale ale if the india is too much for you.  If you've found an IPA that suits your hop zone, drink that one.

Honestly, though, no offense meant to you, it's just that, christ on a stick, I've heard this "the abundance of IPA hops has insulted my taste buds and killed my grandpappy" schtick way too much lately.

I drink beer often, but if subby wants to collect a splash of each one and mix them together, I'll give it a try.

How the hell am I going to drink all 100 this weekend if you don't post the entire effin list?  No, drinking the list posted 2 1/2 times is not the same.  In addition the list should have been posted yesterday because I have to buy the stuff and start drinking NOW. -10 on the submission for poor prior planning.

I used to drink IPAs, but I don't drink them anymore.  It's just seems that they are crowding out some of the other styles.  It probably will come back around in time, but by my count, 15 of the 40 listed here are IPAs (37.5%).  When a non craft beer drinker sees this list, they are presented with one style predominantly
more than others.

For my taste, I stick with bocks and Belgian styles, with a few porters/stouts thrown in here and there.

I've got 2.5 gallons of my own homebrew in the fermenter right now and a few bottles conditioning, so I'm good to go. As others have pointed out, the hoppiness of American beer nowadays does nothing for me, so I make my own. It's also a matter of cost. But whatever floats your boat.

How do you feel about the rise in ABV? Beer Advocate's top beer list features an amazing number of double digit ABVs. I'm more worried about high ABV ruining craft brewing than I am quadruple hopped ales.
 
2014-05-23 05:30:25 PM  
This list will fail miserably if they don't include the first and best of all of the bourbon-barrel-aged beers: Kentucky Ale's Bourbon Barrel Ale.  No need to muck up all of the delicious bourbon notes with a hefty porter.

I don't really know. High ABV messes with the more than a couple of beers thing unless you want to get smashed (which honestly I do sometimes). I guess the only thing I pay attention to is that if I like it I'll drink it.

Charletron: TheShavingofOccam123: high ABV ruining craft brewing

Sorry, what I meant to stress was the rise in ABV will bring down the wrath of Big Religion and Big Beer. Anything to ruin our good time will be exploited by those two enitities.

I have no problem with high ABVs but I do have a problem with small breweries making products that people who want to stop homebrewing and craft brewing can exploit to their advantage.

It is interesting to see some huge brewers joining rather than fighting craft brewing by actually making organic beers and really amazing products. I'm wondering if they'll hang around after all the small but excellent breweries are bought out.

So my argument isn't about taste and higher ABVs. It's about higher ABVs being used by interested parties to ruin my good time.

Look, I like IPAs. I do. When the mood strikes, a big 'ol hop-bomb really hits the spot, and the sleepy body-buzz I get from all that hop oil is almost Indica-like. They're fine beers.

That said, will American microbrewers please please get into some other styles? Yeah, yeah, porters, stouts, blah blah blah. How about Bavarian-style hefeweisens, ala Weihenstephan? That's my personal favorite style, and I have yet to drink a single American-made beer that does it right. Sierra Nevada Kellerweis comes close, but I would love to see a dozen American beers of that style on my local supermarket shelf, instead of just one.

I don't harbor illusions that many other beer drinkers are into fruit beers as much as I am -- specifically beers brewed (not flavored) with strawberries -- but I know there are plenty who appreciate real banana-and-clove tasting hefes.

At least Kolsch seems to be gaining popularity, which is great. So much better than bland lagers, yet just as refreshing on a hot day.

Considering there is already an abomination known as bacon beer, we are more likely to get Wienerschnitzelweisen.

Now THIS is a fair criticism. Granted I'm spoiled living in Portland where I can get pretty much anything (one whole brewery that specializes in sours and lambics for instance), but there is a lack of certain styles in general nationwide and hefeweizens are definitely one of them. Actually German styles like that, dunkels, and alts also on that list.

Best seasonal I've had lately was Occidental's maibock. They do good on German beers. Oooh did I like that.

All I can say is, they'd better have Samuel Smith's Imperial Stout on this "list" .

This one is a seasonal I think, but it's also good.

#92: Green Flash Palate Wrecker

I spotted this on the beer list while I was out with a crowd from work last week, and I was intrigued, but they were out of it. Wouldn't you know, I was wandering the aisles at our local beer store a few days later, and there it was! They sell singles (one of their many winning qualities), so I decided to try one.

Oh. God.

The menu description mentioned "citrus notes". It did not say "tastes like grapefruit juice and vodka".

It tastes like grapefruit juice and vodka.

And I farking hate grapefruit.

Our local beer store has somewhere north of 1600 different varieties to choose from. I know I won't like all of them. But, so far, Palate Wrecker is pretty near the bottom of the list. (The peach mead I tried is still lower.)
 
2014-05-23 11:49:59 PM  
I hope to see Alaskan Amber somewhere in the next 60. That one's all around awesome.
