    Sitting in the fridge for the long weekend:

    North Coast Brother Thelonius
    2x Stone XI
    2x Stone '06 Double Bastard - will get the '07 probably today
    Stone X
    Monk's Ale
    Leffe
    Celebration Ale
    Stone Vertical Epic 07.07.07

    For the hell of it, I think I will go out this afternoon to add to my supply. I haven't had a Mephistopheles for some time... I'll pitch a trip to Sunflower in Rio Rancho to see if they have anything new out that way. I did find a place here that sells Stone Ruination sixers for $7.99, but they were out of stock (I wonder why) when we visited last.

    I guess its as good as any time to resurrect this thread.

    I've never really liked beer, but that was until I came to Germany and discovered mix beers. The guys in my dorm love them, and I don't mind them also because the stuff they put in them takes the edge off the bitterness. German beer ftw. I also need to try weizenbier (wheat beer) like the stuff in the first post.

    Samuel Adams cherry wheat brew is amazing. And I generally hate Sam Adams!

    It's fair enough. Sam's stuff is overall good in my opinion. Their Triple Bock lacks balance though.

    I'm not a big Sam fan...on the same level, Brooklyn Brewery is much better.

    Ah, good ol' Garrett Oliver.

    Sam makes decent beers in a wide range of styles. I wouldn't call many of them the epitome of any given style, but they do represent their styles well. I like to think of them as a beacon for beer novices to find in the darkness that is Bud Milloors.

    I had a delightful IPA yesterday:

    [​IMG]
    The Maharaja... a delightful 10.5%, and this, the Ruination IPA, some fat tire ales and a handfull of cheaper "maintaining" brews (not to mention a few shots of Jamesons)... work sucks today.

    Dude :erk:

    I remember going to Wacken last year:

    "Hey what kind of a beer can I get here"
    "Becks"
    ".... Anything else?"
    "Nah, the festival is sponsered by Becks"


    "... NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO"

    Then, and only then I would have become a fan of Becks...I'd drink Budweiser if it was the only beer around...and I'm the biggest beer snob there is!

    really! like Zach said and ...... awesome, maybe the greatest expression ever..... and Im not much of a beer guy.

    I did find I really like lager recently. Had some Sam Adams at my boy Todds funeral.... of all things and made this discovery, so that was fitting.
