My boss got me an Arrogant Bastard, Three Philosophers, and Corsendonk for Christmas. Big step up from the $5 gift card to Dunkin' Donuts I got from him last year haha.

Also I don't remember if this beer has been mentioned yet in this thread, but Celebration by Sierra Nevada is definitely a hugely underrated IPA. If anyone here who likes IPAs hasn't had it yet and finds it still on shelves, definitely pick it up. It comes out every year around late November/early December.

And has anyone had Old Man by Southern Tier? I got this for Christmas as well. BeerAdvocate has it listed as an old ale, but it tastes very different from the only other old ale I've had, which is North Coast Old Stock Ale. I find it to be very good, and I must have overlooked it in stores a hundred times for whatever reason. North Coast Old Stock Ale is much better, but it's also pretty expensive.

We had Scaldis Noel last night. A little syrupy for me... may have been my mood. I drank it, it was OK but I wasn't thrilled.

Jeez, never thought I would see the day. I enjoy a good Yuengling black and tan when budget is tight.

Had the Rouge Hazelnut Brown Nectar the other day.....freaking awesome.

I actually drank it while eating fish and chips which worked out pretty well. Then again, anything deep fried with any beer is usually a safe bet.

I love Rogue!

Went to Hyde Park Brewing Co yesterday. They had some decent stuff. The porter was okay, but nothing to write home about. I liked the red lager a lot. Their special right now is a decent dunkel. In general, they tend to make more lighter stuff; they had a good variety of lagers. Overall, solid, fundamentally sound brew pub, worth going to if you end up that far (poor word choice, because it's not actually really far away) upstate.

A nice article for a good laugh:

Beer Taste Test

The best line is the last:

"None of these beers has enough complexity and balance to be excellent, but Coors comes fairly close."

I didn't know that piss-water can be described as tasting excellent.

This month I have been seeking out session beers. Good tasting beer with low ABV%, picked up Bitter American (in cans!) it is pretty decent. A little more hoppy than I like but it was a refreshing change.

You mean Session brand name? I am into Session Fest. Session Black was kind of average. I like their 10oz bottles. I also noticed they're made by Full Sail. See what looking for calorie info teaches you!

session beer

A beer that is low in alcohol and has a balanced flavor of both hops and malt. The purpose being so that it can be drank over a long session of time with out overwhelming the palate or getting the drinker too intoxicated.


Like, duh!, just kidding. I just heard the term myself and it made sense.

Ahh 21st Amendment brewery! I just looked it up -- I think I'd heard of/wanted to try Monk's Blood...

I have been looking for 21st Amendment's Hell or High Watermelon for ages, but haven't found it yet. I know it is seasonal but even in season I have been having a hard time finding it.

Also looks like Flounder Brewing in Hillsborough, NJ is coming along based on his Facebook site. He should start brewing sometime this year and will make his beer available in local bars and liquor stores.

Yes Killian's is brewed by Coors, and FYI Schmidt is brewed by Miller.

Miller Lite is not even all that cheap. Here it's like $20 something for a 30. PBR is like $14 for a 30. I like drinking good beers like Sam Adams, but if I'm down to party Miller Lite is the way to go.

Cousin Robbie... ??? Is that you?!?!?!

One of my husband's cousins nearly got sneered out of a brew pub when he asked if they had Mi... ahhh yes... It was Michelob, not Miller light.
