What kind of beer is everyone drinking tonight?

Recommended Posts

Steel Barrel Brewing... Frost Crushable Ale.

Crisp ale good alternative for a lighter feeling beer.

Which is good because I started with a Boulevard Restless Nights.  A heavy coffee porter aged in bourbon barrels.  Not a huge fan of this one.

My latest trip to the beer distributor I got

Straub American Lager

Yuengling Golden Pilsner

I was in a PA beer mood.  The Straub American Lager really surprised me.  It is a very crisp clean and refreshing lager, definitely not heavy.  It had a very subtle hop finish that I really liked as well.  A college friend of mine is a sales rep for them and introduced them to me and I was very impressed and would buy it again.

If you like Gose style beers, and like tequila and margaritas, try Founders Mas Agave.

I got some of this on draft at a local craft place, and fell in love - I've been cleaning out the local stores stocking up - it's seasonal, and I think they're done for this year, but you can still find some in stores.  You'll either love it or hate it honestly, depending on your taste.  It's 10% ABV, so for me, it's pretty much a weekend-only beer, but f-ing fantastic.

How was it? I've never had one more then 3 years old.

ETA: it's a.decent beer, I'm not a huge fan of CCB stouts though.

It was really good. Had an old Dark Lord type of taste to it and somehow there was some coffee aroma even after 5 years.

Pseudo and Pompeii are my staples now. So tired of 15 to 20 dollar IPA 4 packs and TG usually crushes it.

My grocery store now sells Houblon Chouffe in 4 packs. Unbelievable.  One of my favorite beers ever. I’m drinking one tonight.

Cheers everyone. Having a Founders Canadian Breakfast Stout and Barrel Aged Ten Fidy tonight. Had a Marble White with dinner. I'm old, so 3 or 4 strong beers is about all I can handle in one evening these days.

Last night I had Dogfish Head Suddenly Comfy - Imperial Cream Ale brewed with apple juice, cinnamon, allspice, & vanilla beans.  It is the equivalent of apple pie in a beer.  It was delicious.

This weekend I found at the grocery store:

New Belgium Nitro Cold Brew Cream Ale crafted with High Brew coffee &

Lexington Brewing & Distilling Co. Kentucky Vanilla Barrell Cream Ale

I am loving the fact that I am finding a lot of different cream ale varieties.  Very cool.

Just opened a crowler of Founders’ Canadian Breakfast Stout. Have a crowler of Oskar Blues’ Ten Fidy for later. Should be a good Christmas.

I'll revise this... chocolate is very subtle. Cherry is more profound.

I liked it quite a bit. Had the Zamunda Forever too which was a very honey tasting mead, but quite good as well. 
 

ETA: I’ve still got a bottle of the Oak Meadowfoam and Red Skies at Night left plus 2 bottles of some stuff I got in Hawaii a while back.

Figured I should pop something for the holidays. Went with Bells 30th and it has aged gorgeously over the last 5 years. Dark roasted cocoa and fruit.

I got one of these 67 ounce growlers  for Christmas and I'm looking up all the local breweries by me.

I assume most of them will fill a 67 ounce growler, right?

I didn't realize growlers were that big.

Most will fill without issue, but some have varieties on tap which are small batch and not available for growler fill.

I got a "no". The lady bartender said they have had "bad experiences" so they stopped. :shrug:

I ended just buying a growler (32 ounce sealed can) for 8 bucks plus tax. Gonna look for a different brewery that can fill a 67 ounce growler on Tuesday.

As ditka said, very coffee forward. It's lacking in the bourbon department though IMO.

Nice share tonight. I brought the 18 Marshmallow Handjee. We also had 19 Rye Barrel Dark Lord, 18 Hung, Drawn, and Quartered (basically 18 rye barrel aged dark lord), BA No Cake, 19 Assassin, others. All awesome. 

Was an incredible beer year for me. 13 Prop, 14 Prop, Vanilla Rye, multiple Assassins,  KBBS,  many Dark Lord variants, plenty of Bottle Logic and Angry Chair stouts, and more than I can remember.  I think I've hit peak beer. 

Drinking an 18 Deth by Currants but time to dial it back in the new year. 

Happy New Year, FBGs.

Preparing for the big snow storm and figure a BA stout is in order. Going with a 2016 Bourbon County.

Never had one. I am interested to hear from anyone who has.

I haven't either.  I hear it's more like a brandy than a beer and that it ages very well. I bought some of their triple bock back in the early 90's when it came out.  I thought it was pretty cool that some of that same beer is part of the blend in Utopias.  It's almost 30 years old at this point.
