I used to pound Molson Ice anywhere I could find it when I was in college back in 1986-1990...
Funny story; first time I ever had this was on tap at a local gyro/bbq/hot dog place. I think they were one of the first places to carry it.
If any of you boys are fans of stouts, make sure you check out B.O.R.I.S. The Crusher Oatmeal Imperial Stout from Hoppin' Frog Brewery. Yummy stuff. Their dopplebock, Karminator Imperial, is really good, too.
Another great one from MD., and among the very best of its style in the country:
Duckpin Pale Ale from Union Craft Brewing in Bmore. Seriously fantastic!
I kind of forgot about this thread but I had a really great beer journey this summer.
I found out I'm really really sick of IPA's and I'm really into sour beers. I found the sour beers amazingly refreshing in the summer heat. Anything that says "gose" on it, I'll buy it. Triton Brewery in Indianapolis has a couple great goses. Also dogfish head has a great "seaquench ale" that's pretty sour and available at a lot of grocery stores. Rhinegeist bubbles is a sour rosé beer that looks a little feminine but, dang, it's great.
I suspect @Elliot will not like this one...
I'll try some with supper whilst watching the game.
Probably not. Cant do those anymore
I totally hit up the sours in the summer. Seaquench pair so well with Mexican food.
OK, well just so you know... this one is excellent.
It's got that murkier/cloudier look and feel. The flavour is a fair bit heavier than the aforementioned Spinnaker, but again makes a nice mate to the homemade pork schnitzel supper I had.
A little bit more tart.
Yup... I like it.
Avery Liliko'i Kepolo is a white ale with passionfruit, and I guess that's a sour ale of a sort. Good stuff! You could tell me the passionfruit was grapefruit and I'd totally believe it. I think it's the first sour I've tried (so far) that I've wanted to buy a second time.
I include a sour in every tasting. Some have been hideous, but a few have been excellent.
Sweet and savory?
Not too heavy or thick.
Lovely flavour for an occasional treat. Brewed in Vancouver.
A friend of mine sent me a tankard for my birthday. I don't think I've ever had beer from a tankard before, but it has become my go-to vessel for beer drinking. It has a handle and double wall insulation, so the beer stays colder, longer. Plus, when I "Cheers" with someone, my metal tankard crushes their beer glass.
Please tell me you "ARRRGGHHHH" like a pirate when you use it, too!
Thanks for the trip down memory lane!
About 30 years ago (cough, ahem, ahem!) I used to drink in a small country pub, in a village I lived in. Me and my friends all had tankards at the bar. Mine had fish as a handle. A couple of friends had ones with a glass bottom. So the story goes, the glass bottom was so you could see if an adversary was about to launch an attack on you, as you drank your real ale. This, I am told is from medieval times!
Really like this one.
Palm-Belgian Amber ale -full bodied taste that’s easy to drink. Found only in the finer liquor stores...GOOD LUCK ‼️
Innis and Gunn makes some very nice beer.
Today I tried Frank and Sense. Made with frankincense and myrrh. Really good and packaged in an orange bag.
My son and his GF got me a gift basket for my birthday with a dozen different lesser known and local brews to try.
Not one had I tried before, so nicely done!
Anyway, the Innis and Gunn were at the top of the list.
