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.


Yeah screw that. I drink whatever I am feeling that day. Some days I feel like a heavy beer like Guinness then other days I feel like a lighter beer like Newcastle. It is all about what you prefer. Beer is one of those things that the more you drink it the more experienced and daring you become. You appreciate it more. What I do not like is those who say, "I drink beer all the time." and they order Choors or Bud off tap.....no.

Ill pay the extra .50-2 dollars per pint over that thank you very much.

Haha I laugh at those who say they like to experiment with new and imported beers and they tell me they order a Heineken once in a while to prove it. Too cute.

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.

Thanks for the info I'll be sure to try those out, and hopefully I can make it to Westvleteren when I'm in Belgium

I also drank Victory Prima Pils (Pennsylvania) this past weekend but wasn't crazy about it. From the reviews I had read, I thought I would like it a lot, but nope.

It just goes to show, I guess, that you can't go strictly by the reviews; you gotta let your tastebuds decide for themselves.

We've done the whole Victory line.

What IS funny about Bud drinkers is when they drink beer at our house they are PLASTERED after 2. You know and I lump Stella in with Coors light and all that. pissewasser is pissewasser no matter where it's produced :uni:

df26, Yeah the one in PR, I live like 5 minutes from there.

DM84, my boss thinks he's a real beer afficionato and trashes my taste in beer all the time at work. I couldn't care less if i spend $2 on a pint or $5, if it tastes good, I'll go for the $2 any day of the week, regardless of name.

maybe I've hung on to my college tastes where if it was a beer and had alcohol in it, I'd at least try it.

OK -- I just went to their site -- we have NOT done the whole Victory line -- I think mostly the yearly... Prima is a nice standard, for me it's a great start of the evening beer when you don't know what you're in the mood for yet - I like it better as an all purpose beer than the V lager.

I like Golden Monkey - to me it's flavorful but more busy than complex if that makes sense. Sometimes I can't get through a bottle - I feel like I'm drinking perfume - other times it's just what I want.

HopDevil is nice (I think I like any Beer with Devil in the title though I DO confess). Sometimes I think I don't understand what hops tastes like -- sometimes I get a very bitter beer and everyone says it's the hops - then I get an herby beer and it's billed as very hoppy. I have to eat a hop flower I think to really understand the flavor.

I've never had Storm King. Donnybrook - I love the name :rolleyes: so I think positively on it...but in truth, it's not earth shattering - I like my stouts with the wizzy ball thing (if it's not on tap of course) - out of a bottle, the texture doesn't suit me now :noclue:

I was just going to say I'd never heard of Helios... I guess it's new... the marketing has me I'll have to keep an eye out :boogie:

I know I've had 12 but I have ZERO recollection - I probably shared it and it made no effect on me so.. :noclue: I had Wild Devil but was disappointed -- I'm sorry I dont remember why. and I dont think I had anything else.

I know it's not very hip, but I am a big Yuengling fan. Good price, good taste.

And I really like Sunshine Wheat, a Colorado beer that's not distributed on the East Coast from what I can tell. It's like Blue Moon but better IMO.

Yeah I have also been into the whole fruity or different tasting beers. Have you tried Sea Dog Blue Paw (Blueberry Wheat)? Thats a very very good fruity beer. They also have an raspberry wheat one that I havent tried yet as well as apricot wheat. If you havent tried it youll have to hunt that beer down.

My wife likes Manischewitz! It's what the bums call ripple. Alcoholic Welch's grape juice. Bleeck!

I stick with Flying Fish myself these days, as it is brewed so close to my home. Exit 4 is a great one and hopefully they'll keep it around. HopFish is another good one.

I really like the 90 Minute IPA from DogFish Head as well :)

Hey I am now home and my husband cracked open the Gnomegong --- it tastes like a really real Belgian. I'd recommend it!

I think it's the La chouffe and Ommegong people

I'm missing my Flying fishes now Weyerbacker is OK but I was enjoying the Exit 4 too! I want to have the 16W! but I can't....

I hate Ray Bourque... maybe it's the half of this 20 proof beer making me say it -- but he stole 16W from us. 10 years and I still want to slap his stupid square fat bearded face --- and ballsac's bizarro unshaped face.

I have book club tonight -- I can't stand Gabriella Hamilton's book but the ladies of Lambertville HAD to read it. I wager we'll all be taking a book club field trip to Prune -- OH NO.... we'll take a drunken stroll to Hamilton Grill!!! :clap: that would be funny!!

I'm sorry guys.... :offtopic:
