jeaux65: 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.


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.

Looks like you'd have no time for whiskey snobs either.

FTA: The Verdict: I think Sam Adams is an underrated brewery, but this beer, though easy to drink, isn't among their greatest accomplishments.


This is probably Sam's best seasonal!

New Glarus Fat Squirrel. OK, maybe they make it all year round now, but it used to be seasonal. Of course you can't get it outside of Wisconsin, so sucks to be you but then again you don't have to deal with Scott Walker the douche.

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!

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...

melopene: mudpants: The things that don't make it beer? I like a few black and tan, I prefere stouts but the dang flavored stuff isn't very good. It's like making bacon out of turkey. It is just WRONG !
no juniper in beer, no lime, arrrrggg, it is wrong!

So you stick to the old-school definition, that's fine. Some of us like to be adventurous. It's the spice of life!

If you stick to the old-old-school definition, all of those "things that don't make beer" are actually what make beer. We've only been using hops for a few hundred years, all of that other stuff has been in there for thousands of years.

WinoRhino: melopene: This year's Summer Ale was much better

Did you hear that they lost their entire final batch of summer ale? That's why pumpkin and oktoberfest hit the scene earlier than usual.

That's a real shame - but exactly what I meant about how they still think like a microbrewery.

Also, the fact that they gave hops to small breweries during the hops shortage makes them a bunch of badasses.

I like rum, wine, whiskey, vodka ... lotsa things. But I want a beer that tastes like beer.
Not like mint jeelaps, I don't want beer that tastes like limes,
I don't want beer that tastes like eucalyptus for crisssake.
I want b e e r thet tastes like BEER. Can I make it more clear? I
f I just want alcahol I don't want the flavor, if I got no time to savor.

Speaking of Fall beers, I've had really mixed experiences with PumKing. I had it on tap once and it was like drinking grandma's pumpkin pie. Had it out of a bottle and it was like eating canned corn off a piece of old cardboard.

Anyway, fall in New England is for cider, and homemade cider is always the best. Super easy too. Much easier than brewing. If I have 25 gallons of cider by November, I'll be a pretty happy man. Unfortunately the sh*tty spring we had apparently borked up the apple crop so cider is kinda stoopid expensive compared to previous years. Oh well, sang McWatt, what the hell.

Nice, I'm drinking a Victory Festbier right now. Love Oktoberfest marzen style. Also looking forward to trying all the fresh-hopped harvest beers. Plus, another Victory brew that arrives closer to December, Moonglow Weizenbock.

I have 5 gallons of Oktoberfest in secondary fermentation right now that I'm going to keg this weekend. My taps have been dry for about two weeks. This needs to change.

The Tumbler is good - having some now, and a great value at 12.99/12pk at Kroger. The best Sweetwater seasonals are yet to come- the Festival ale and Happy Ending stout are marvelous, extremely powerful winter beers.
