    It ain't any good to me if I can't have any. But I just had 2 Belgian Ales. Palm Special Ale and Leffe Brown. I tell you what, that Leffe Brown was awesome!

    I'm so vegetarian I don't even eat animal crackers!

      Leffe Brown is the go-to beer at our house.

        They'll tell you that failure is not an option.  That's ridiculous.  Failure is always an option.  It is the easiest and most readily available option.  It's your choice though.

          I used to brew... all grain... then dumped all the brewing equipment after a divorce.  I did everything but roast my own grains.  Lots of work, but also lots of fun!  Sometimes I miss it, but with so much micro-brewed stuff available these days I'm content.  Back then (early 90s) there wasn't nearly the availability of brew that there is today.

            Great point about microbrews - seems like a new one is popping up every day. My brother-in-law started dabbling with all grain, but I'm still using extract kits. There's just something about being able to produce 5 gallons of fairly tasty beer for ~$40 that is quite alluring. 

            I've recently started making hop substitutions with a few kits, and the cranberry is my first attempt at a fruit beer. We'll see - I don't have high expectations.

              I used to, but quit brewing and quit drinking because I was getting fat.  I brewed with extract kits.  I liked brewing porters and stouts the best because they were the hardest to screw up.

                I'm with you on the stouts and porters, especially this time of year, a dark beer just seems to fit. This past year I've moved IPA's to the top of my list. Just recently enjoyed this 'Arctic Panzer Wolf' from 3 Floyds Brewery. It's a double IPA with 9.5% ABV and 100 IBU. Amazing.

                  If there were any available in my area, I'd sure as hell pick it up.  Unfortunately, it's not so I won't.  Then again, I'll be in Canton this weekend and there are a couple of places in the Cleveland area that have it.  I'm willing to waste a phone call to see if perchance they have it.  I think the likelihood is slim to non-existent but you never know.  From everything I have read, there is essentially no difference between the Westvleteren 12 and the St. Bernardus Abt 12 other than scarcity.  On BeerAdvocate.com, the Bros give the St. Bernardus a slightly higher rating than the Westvleteren while the masses go the other way.  Then again, we're talking about 96 vs 100.

                    I do extract, will be brewing an IPA and a APA soon, already have the recipes, the APA is a SNPA clone. Have you stopped into the Drinkers With a Running Problem forum yet, few homebrewers there also.

                      Apparently stores around Vancouver started getting this in a couple of days ago.  I'll have to check a few of the locals, although I wouldn't be surprised if it is already sold out.

                          I do all grain home brewing. I have also made my own recipes and grown my own hops. There is nothing like brewing with freshly picked hops!

                             Are you kidding me? The whole point of this thread was to call out the beer aficianados of this forum, be it connisourer or home brewer!

                              Apparently it sold out insanely fast in Toronto.
