    yes Steel Reserve really is "brutal"
    for a lot of people, Steel Reserve actually gets you way, way, way more fucked up than actual hard-liquor

    I'll rarely get cravings for beer, definitely not a connoisseur. I do like making beer battered things, such as onion rings! XD

    I've had that, hard liquor tastes bad.

    Picked up Clown Shoes Undead Party Crasher imperial stout yesterday. Yummy stout with that dry, smoky taste.

    i bet you cant tell the difference between stouts and porters just like how you cant tell the difference between metal and rock. ;)

    Here's pretty tasty local beer, Pinkus Special.
    IMG_20181007_202259 (1).jpg

    There's small--like, very small--chance you could find this one in the US. It's a very light colored Alt, maybe comparable to the beer above, and doesn't taste like any Alts I've had before. I wouldn't say it's worth the 5 bucks I paid for it, though the experience of having them for less than a euro probably plays more into that than the beer itself. I bought it almost more out of surprise when I saw it in my favorite hometown liquor store.

    Winners o Novo Mango IPA. I love mango and this hits the spot perfectly. Just the balance of sweet, but not too sweet, and bitterness.

    Montezuma's Amber Ale: Great mix of smoke and toffee. Could drink this all day.

    Samuel Smith- Oatmeal Stout. God, such a great mix of chocolate and dried fruit flavors. Why did I wait so long to try this?

    First time trying this one and i really liked it, so rich and flavorful.

    Every beer ive had on tap here has been on point(not watered down and you can tell they take care of their taplines). Will definitely be going back here soon.

    Been MIA for the last month and am still rather occupied, but here are a few I've enjoyed recently

    Delirium in Antwerpen. Never disappoints.
    IMG_20181014_190515.jpg

    La Chouffe in Amsterdam. I totally recommend this hoppy rendition.
    IMG_20181020_143458.jpg

    A taste of Lille. Lille's a pretty cool student city and everybody gets trashed on this because it's dirt-cheap and three is all it takes. Lots of vomit on the sidewalks in the morning.
    IMG_20181013_213201.jpg

    Totally recommend this guy.
    IMG_20181012_203122.jpg

    A little basic bitch, but delicious. I of course had more in Lille than pictured here.
    IMG_20181012_203129.jpg

    I was in the ass crack of England last week and had some lovely Cornish brews. No pictures. I'll be in Düsseldorf next week and am crossing my fingers that the special, strong Altbier that's only brewed in Christmas season will be available.

    I got these Maine Brewing Co. beers from a friend of mine. Lunch, Peeper and Woods & Waters. I had to jump in and try the Lunch right away and it didn't disappoint at all. Super tasty.

    I also had Pliny the Elder, Blind Pig and Supplication from Russian River during a trip recently and those were all very nice.

    ... that Founders breakfast stout is so good. I like all of their stouts and porters.

    edit: oh and Lunch and Blind Pig are great too, two of my favorite IPA's.

    Flensburger is solid and their bottles always have a nice solid pop when opened, but I've actually only ever had their Pilsner. I tend to think of south Germany when when I'm looking for a Weizen or a Hell, so it's just never crossed my mind to pick up some.

    I've guzzled down quite a fair amount of Altbier the last couple of days and brought some home with me. The circulation for a good amount of Altbier breweries in Düsseldorf is super small and can only be bought in the city. I'll post 'em after I drink 'em.

    Any homebrewers here? I've been all grain brewing for a couple of years now although the output has been rather low lately.
