What are people's opinions of Saisons? I like them and it seems to be the season for them now.

I think I've only had one or two and didn't really care for them. Not saying saisons are bad, just I guess not my style. It's been about a year since I've even tried one though.

I've really been getting into the "Tripel" style of beer, though they tend to be way out of my budget.. Triumph had one a while back that was 9.5% abv (and after not eating or drinking water for a while that day, just one of these hit me pretty hard lol)

I'll be going to Belgium in a few weeks so I plan on drinking tons of beers, especially Tripels which originated from Trappist beers (apparently it's considered by many to be the best beer in the world)

Have you tried Exit 4 by Flying Fish or Golden Monkey by Victory? If you like tripels I highly recommend them.

Westvleteren 12, regarded as the best beer in the world, is brewed by Belgian Trappist monks not for profit, but just enough to keep their monastery financially stable. Trappistes Rochefort 10 and St. Bernardus Abt. 12 are Trappist beers that are high up on the list as well, although St. Bernardus isn't actually brewed by Trappist monks.

Have any of you tried Arrogant Bastards Chocolate Stout? Its a pretty good beer. Different but in a good way. As is Wells Banana Bread Beer. For those of you that like different beers.



Duck Duck Gooze is another great beer. Brewed by The Lost Abby out in Cali.

Also, what are your thoughts on Lindemans Framboise/Kriek?

Do you mean Stone Imperial Russian Stout? Stone is the name of the brewery that makes Arrogant Bastard. If so, then yea that is an awesome beer, it's the one that got me into craft beer. I have one from 2008 I'm holding onto for a special occasion.

My mistake, it was Rouge who makes the Chocolate Stout. Arrogant Bastard is still good beer.

Oh yea that beer is awesome, it has an awesome aroma too. You should try Southern Tier Choklat if you can find that by you.

Yeah Ill check it out. I love different beers. Id much prefer a different beer over the typical "bud light" beer. The whole bud light lime sort of thing is a good attempt Ill atleast give them that much.

Have you tried their Creme Brule stout? Is that any good?


I am a Guinness fan and on St.Pattys day I tried Mothers Milk on tap. *A lighter Guinness* Wasnt really a fan.

Yea I think their Creme Brulee stout is good too, it has a really strong flavor though so it seems like everyone either loves it or hates it.

I've had a few Irish dry stouts that I liked more than Guinness. I think Schlafly makes a good one. Also, have you had Guinness Foreign Extra Stout? Ten times better than regular Guinness.

Yeah Guinness Foreign Extra Stout is very very good. Ill have to check out Schlafly also. Never heard of that. I do like McSorleys Black lager that is very good. Also Saranac's Vanilla Stout is pretty decent as well.

Last night, I went to a local brewery for a few pints: Defiant Brewery

Had the Muddy Creek Pilsner and the Prohibition Lager.

Both pretty good, but I enjoyed the Prohibition better than the two.

Defiant Brewery in Pearl River, N.Y., right over the N.Y./N.J. border near Montvale, N.J.? I like their stout and porter.

This weekend I had Bitburger Premium Pils (Germany), Radeberger Pilsner (Germany), Hofbräu Maibock (Germany), Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout (California), Bear Republic Racer 5 IPA (California), Long Trail Double Bag (Vermont) and Young’s Double Chocolate Stout (England), and I would recommend every one of them.

What is with people who call themselves "beer snobs" and the love for stouts and porters? I have been told my taste in beers is not as refined all because I do not want to drink a beer that is closer to coffee or chocolate milk than a real beer like a lager or pilsner. IMO I just found most to just about all stouts and porters to not be beer and is for people who hate the taste of real beer.

I love stouts and I love just about every other style of beer I've had also. Some people just don't like styles that other people like, it doesn't mean one is "real beer" and the other is not, nor does it mean a person's taste in beer is not refined. Same goes for hoppy beers, sometimes people like really hoppy beers and sometimes people don't. One could easily say that rauchbiers aren't real beer because they taste more like bacon. No need to criticize the other person or the beer, everyone has different tastes.

I have gotten a lot of criticisms from people I know who tell me that I am not really into beers if I do not like stouts and it really seems every beer snob really loves stouts. To me the malt and other crap like coffee and chocolate that goes into them just turns it into something that is not beer. I will have a stout here and there but to me I feel like I am not drinking beer.

Still though I do have to say Guiness and any stout is worlds better than the swill known as Bud, Coors, and Miller that most people in this country live on.

Well that's their problem if they think enjoying stouts is a requirement for being a beer guy. I have a friend who loves beer but can't stand IPAs. No big deal, that is why there are many different styles.

EDIT:
By the way, I picked up 21st Amendment Hell or High Watermelon yesterday. I really enjoyed it, I like how the watermelon flavor definitely makes its presence felt without being over the top. I think this might be my go-to summer beer, so thanks for the suggestion!

Maybe I just need new friends haha.

Glad you liked the Watermelon beer as I thought it was unique and balanced just right with the watermelon flavor. Not my favorite summer beer but def something different and is quite refreshing.
