    I wasn't sure whether it'd be better to start a new thread or bump a two year old thread. If the existence of this thread is problematic, I won't cry too hard if it's deleted.


    That being said, what are you fellas drinking nowadays? Post some of your all-time faves, and any new brews you've tried lately that are worth mention.

    A couple of my faves:

    Moylan's Hopsickle. Go ahead, find a hoppier beer. I dare you.

    Orval trappist

    Goose Island Bourbon County Stout (to be enjoyed slowly. It WILL knock you on your ass if you aren't careful)

    And I had this on thursday, and I've never had another brew like it.
    Dogfish Head Sah tea:

    It's brewed with black chai and juniper berries. That sounds weird, I know, but I've never had another beer that tasted anything like it. That should be reason enough to snag a bottle if you ever come across it.

    I've never tried Hopsickle, but it sounds good. Several other hoppy beers as far as IBU's are Pliny the Elder, Stone Ruination or DFH 120.

    I make my own beer but when I buy something it's usually Surly Furious which has an IBU of 99 and tastes fantastic.

    I love beer.

    One of my favorites would be Abita Ale - "Turbodog" - it's pretty wicked

    Guinness Extra Stout, anything by Sam Adams, but I particularly like their Cherry Wheat, Blackberry Whitbeer, Summer Ale, and Latitude 48.

    My top favorite is Franziskaner Weissbier. Lately Asahi (in the nice big 33.8oz cans) has been a secondary favorite for when I want a nice crisp lager type beer. Being seasonal my favorite pumpkin beers are #1 - Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin Ale #2 - Dogfish Head Punkin Ale.

    I have waaay too many favorites to list but a quick few are Schneider Weisse (both regular and Edel-Weisse), Fullers 1845 (and London Pride), Samuel Smith Old Brewery Pale Ale, a number of Unibroue beers, Omegang, etc.

    Crazy how many thousands of gallons of Bud Light and Miller Light I served when working in a bowling alley restaurant for 6 weeks, yet no one here names anything that can be found at the corner drugstore.
    Anything Sam Adams for me.

    Bud still own's over 50% of the market and Coors/Miller take most of the rest while Sam Adams is less than 1%.

    I think people's tastes are changing in a good way, they are starting to appreciate good beer.

    The big three's recipes are relics of the prohibition era because they had less grain, hops etc....to work with at the time.

    Honestly, I rarely order these beers when I'm just going out drinking/hanging out. I keep the "good stuff" around when I'm at home, or eating a nice meal.

    Having a $60 bar tab for five or six beers isn't as conducive to "social drinking". :lol:

    Yes franziscaner! It's so hard to come by in Mexico tho :squint:

    to flux architect. I tried the abita turbodog in New Orleans, even though it's nothing fancy, loved it! I think that being able to drink it in the street till you can no longer walk helped make that bond with that beer tho :lol:.

    We do have some great beers in Mexico, if you ever come visit, try a Victoria, that one is only sold in here and is the "working man's beer". also, if you ever see the bohemia, try that, or the negra modelo.
