Unlimited BEER thread. Who's game? (Read 197 times)

    Ballast Point just arrived in the area this past week, their Sculpin IPA is incredible.  Drinking one from the stash right now.

      My husband bought a Sam Adams winter variety pack so I stole a White Christmas last night. VERY tasty.

        Beer threads make me sad ... I can't have it any more. And all those stouts and porters on LTH's list sound so good! My favorite post-marathon treat was a local stout "Oscar's Chocolate Oatmeal Stout" from Sand Creek Brewing.

        Now I have to stick with wine, cider and cocktails - think tonight will be a Angry Orchard Ginger Apple Cider.

            There's a local microbrewery that makes a chocolate stout that is ah-mazing!  And I'm a big Angry Orchard fan.  My favorite is their crisp apple.

             

            Do you even run?

              I am in love with English Pale Ale's right now. Not sure what it is - maybe that its not OVERTLY hoppy? Either way, this one was delicious. Drinking it after hard-run trail 5k? Even tastier.

               

               

              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.

                Samuel Smith makes some pretty good ales and lagers. My wife likes their organic strawberry ale.

                  The Alchemist was a great brewpub in Waterbury, VT that was destroyed by the floods from Hurricane Irene.  They found a new location and ditched the food and other beers to focus on canning their flagship beer, the mighty Heady Topper.

                   

                   

                  If you can lay your hands on some, I suggest you grab it.

                    You say that like it's a bad thing.  I can appreciate a good cabernet!

                        This is a great beer.  Hard to get.

                          Hill Farmstead is great as well, and also difficult to get outside of VT.

                            I've got these on my mantle as I wait to find the rest of the set... and there are cold ones in the fridgeBig grin.

                              I was just in Vermont a few weeks ago and I agree with this. I stayed overnight in Waterbury and was able to to have The Alchemist Heady Topper, Lawson's Finest Kiwi and Hill Farmstead Abner in the span of about an hour. I was in hop heaven.

                                I've heard great things about Lawson's finest, but have yet to see it down in Southern VT.
