    The Beer Thread

    I'm not sure how this topic was brought up in a politically charged thread, but I consider it my duty to shift the atmosphere to something that welcomes the opposite of a thoughtful, serious conversation... that would be beer, my friends.

    My go to beers as of late have been 3 Floyd's Alpha King Pale Ale (a phenomenal brewery from Munster, Indiana), and since I'm a Chicagoan anything Goose Island.

    Attachment 369435

    Goose Island's Honker's Ale is a standard around here, but what really shines are their premium beers that come in 4 packs (their Matilda (belgian-style) is one of my favorites, as well as the Pere Jacques and the Bourbon County Stout). Both have great brew pubs with excellent food, if you're in the area.

    You like hops? A lot of hops? Dogfish Head's 90 Minute IPA (or 120 if you're into 10 bottles of beer OUTSIDE of the bar) is a fucking champ, one of the best of it's kind for sure.

    Attachment 369434

    As for Belgian Styles, I'm a fan of Delerium Tremens (named after the withdrawal shakes an alcoholic gets when they abstain from drinking)... Duvel is tasty too. Chicago has a fine restaurant called the Hopleaf with, I believe, the largest international beer selection in the city. Food is bitchin', too.

    When it gets cold as hell and my balls begin their ascension into my abdomen, I usually go something darker and fuller like a stout or porter to knock them back out. Great Lakes Brewing Company's Edmond Fitzgerald porter is fantastic, and Anchor Steam's porter is delicious as well. I like New Holland's The Poet stout quite a bit, but an Old No. 38 Stout has been my go to towards the end of the winter.

    Obviously, I like beer. I can talk about this shit forever, so hopefully there are a few more out there that can do the same.

    nice variety- I love finding a place that has a huge selection and just going crazy- easy way to blow 50 bucks no doubt.

    Can't think of too much off the top of my head but can make some recomendations as far as decent price-

    tetleys- nice and creamy english ale
    The Beer Thread

    Smokin up some BBQ? Nice sunny hot day? Yuengling is nice and light but flavorful-

    The Beer Thread

    Blue Moon- belgian on a budget- sweet creamy -not as heavy than the micro brew or more expencive belgian though- they also started doing other brews like a winter ale and summer ale but I haven't tried em.

    I know theres more but it's early

    Gloominati, if I go German I usually go Spaten Optimator (usually out of a ginormous 64oz glass boot around Oktoberfest). Beerfrau! BOOT!

    Attachment 369447

    Hacker-Pschorr is a perfect spring beer for me... light and crisp as hell. I'll be having a few tonight if all goes well.

    Attachment 369449

    DECYPL, Tetley's is pretty tasty... after a few it becomes a challenge to keep all that head off of your nose, haha. You had Fuller's ESB? Great English style pub ale.

    Attachment 369450

    Out in Seattle for the workshop I drank the shit out of Red Hook's ESB... that area of the country was a whole new beer heaven for me to explore.

    Aw, Oregon. Why I won't move from this grand state. Beer. Craft beer...microbrews......no need to touch the foreign products as the local offerings are so damn good. Screw coffee, the beautiful landscape, the Cascades, the amazing restaurants... I'm here for the beer.

    A meal in a pint....

    Just looking at that fine brew brings a tear to my eye. sniff.

    As far as cider goes, on a hot summers day, Magners is the champs drink to have in a glass with some ice. There's also Bulmers which I believe was the old name Magners went under in the past, but it's just the same, although a little sweeter if I remember coorectly.:

    Additionally, Strongbow, which i'm having a pint of right now:

    As far as Ales go, I tried a few when I was down the south of England for a couple of days, but i forget their names. I just remember they were tastey as hell. Black Sheep is is a pretty good ale, though. Good to have when you come in from the rain and cold:

    The Beer Thread

    I love the taste of all the I.P.As that i've tried, too. From what I hear, though, most UK I.P.As arn't the real deal compared to the originals, but they still usually have a good strength and taste to them.

    For lagers, I prefer Red Stripe. Tastey, and fairly stong, too.

    And also Kronenbourg, which is nice and crisp.

    See, that's half my reasoning right there for why I want to make a transition to the Northwest coast. Manny's, Pyramid, Red Hook... it's goddamned delicious out there. I've never had that particular brew before, I'm going to see if I can find it around here.

    And Fat Tire is delicious Mark, you're damn right. 1554 is a nice black ale made by the same brewer, New Belgium.

    By the way, am I the only one who went out and bought some alcohol after viewing this thread? I'm too weak, dammit.
