Re: Budweiser American Ale... 


Dogfish Head is next on my list (my dad LOVES it and wants me to try it).  I've just been on this "kick" recently.

And I typically prefer hoppy beers too.  IPAs, PAs, etc are my favorite types of beer overall.  But I find myself driving 30 minutes to my favorite liquor store just to get one bottle of these trappists.

I think I may go get some Dogfish Head IPA this weekend.  After all, it's obvious that money isn't an object to me when it comes to beer cool

I also think the title of this thread should be changed.

Something like "Beers That Are Absolutely Nothing Like Budweiser American Ale"

Just don't buy the cheapeast Dogfish Head, the 60 minute IPA.  It is just okay.

If you can, grab some 90 (or 120!) and maybe some Indian Brown and Raison D'Etre (which is a Belgium brown ale brewed with beet sugar and raisins).  Good stuff.

Thanks for the heads up.  Some 120 minute is in my weekend future if I can find it.

Well, last night I got some Sierra Nevada Torpedo and yet another sixer of Victory Hop Wallop...and the Hop Wallop is definitely still numero uno on my 'list'.  Awesome.  The Torpedo was solid, too, but not in Hop Wallop's league.

Hop Wallop and Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA on my shopping list for tomorrow afternoon.  Very excited to finally have a night off to drink some quality brews again.

The Southern Tier 2xIPA is maybe an 8/10.  Really good, but not Hop Wallop level.

Man, this thread has some dust on it. Has anybody tried any of the Magic Hat beers. I've heard some good things, so when I get out of work, I'm going to pick up a variety pack. I'll post the findings at a later date.

Re: Budweiser American Ale... 


Sorry late to the thread I like your list. I too while not snobbish prefer beer that I like. I will and have drunk coors bud light, Heineken and such but if I can help it and i have  a choice I choose beer that tastes better to me.

I like hoppy beer but I like variety. What is your opinion Easton on Hops mixed with Gruit like a lot of Belgian or Dutch witbier use. I like the taste personally. I also like Dark and Red beers.

Phil - I would hate to see your stomach on that Dogfish Head 90 or 120 Easton mentioned...that stuff packs some hops.

O'Fallon 5-Day IPA is a good session beer if you like hops. It has just the right dose for those who like IPA's.


Hops MAKE beer.  If a beer isn't hoppy (that is supposed to be) isn't, then I am not interested.

My garage fridge currently contains:

Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale
Rogue Shakespeare Stout
Rogue Hazelnut Brown Ale
Rogue Dead Guy Ale
Rogue American Ale
Bell's Oberon Ale
Bell's Java Stout
Bell's Pale Ale
Mad Anthony Pale Ale
Mad Anthony IPA
Warbird Pale Ale
Warbird Wheat
Upland Dragonfly IPA
Sierra Nevada Anniversary Ale
Guinness Draught Cans
Young'd Double Chocolate Stout Cans
Bass Pale Ale
Red Hook ESB


I am actually equally, if not moreso, picky about rums...interestingly enough.  I have over 40 bottles in my collection...up to 40 years old.

 

EDIT:  Oh, I also have about 10 bottles of Tequila...about 7 of which are not sold in the U.S.  Authentic anejo tequilas are a thing of beauty.

I've tried torpedo on a few occassions I agree solid beer. I need to try the Hop Wallop. I had some good winter ale over the Holidays.

Since this is a thread about beer and I'm the first poster in the new AutobodyCAD Garage, I suggest we raise our mugs of whatever we're drinking in a toast in memory of Greg Wallace.

I'm having a nice Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon right now. Rest in peace, ACAD.

Good idea, Diz, but I think this deserves its own thread. I hope you don't mind if I start it.

Well, believe it or not, I actually gave up alcohol, as a joke initially, as a New Year's resolution.  But I've had nothing since.

The weirdest thing about it is to see how much money I spent on the good stuff before.  Holy cow.

I initially said I would do it until the Super Bowl but then just decided to keep going.  Now, my ongoing rule, for now, is that I can only break it on vacations or special occasions.  So I may have a few beers in Florida in a few weeks.  But maybe I won't.  I told myself I could at our Super Bowl party too and i didn't.

I do (or did) like the European wheat beers - especially in the summer - but I liked the overhopped American wheats better generally.

In the end, there is probably twenty varieties I would rather grab than any kind of lager.  I just think lager is blah - and that includes the good stuff!

When I do have my first beer as a part of my resolution, I can assure you that it will not be a light anything.  And it won't be a lager.  It will likely be an Imperial IPA.  Or maybe an Imperial Stout.   Until then, I have replaced my glass bottle fixation with the occasional high end ginger beer - specifically those made by Reed's.

Cheers!

Re: Budweiser American Ale... 


Awesome good luck its definitely will save yous ome money. I tend to be a moderate drinker. Alcoholism ran in the family so my father set an example and quit because while he was a happy drunk he was embarassing himself and his children. My brother and I drink very moderately by comparison and I myself rarely drink more than a few times a month unless its a special occasion. But I like good beer and will go out of my way to find it. I like Imperial Stouts in general. Had a good one recently. I like imperial IPAs but not as much as imperial Stouts. Hawaii is not the best place to like good beer until recently. We rarely get a good variety and usually have a hard time getting really good stuff. We do get more and better asian beers that most but its expensive. Such as Echigo, Hitachino's nest, Yebisu and Coedo. 2 of those are rice beers definitely interesting and pretty smooth.

I hear Kona Longboard sales are up. Their big wave is good. Pretty much was the only real good local brewery for awhile. Maui and Molakai have now established good breweries. If anybody likes Porters the Maui brewing Coconut porter is good and relatively inexpensive if you buy it here.

Re: Budweiser American Ale... 


We had a St. Patrick's Day-themed dinner party on Saturday.  The Guinness was a-flowing.  And my craft ginger ale was delicious.

;)

So was my "clean" main course - fish and chips...

Bake-fried haddock crusted in homemade toasted whole grain breadcrumbs and oatmeal, baked sweet potato steak fries with coarse black pepper, sea salt, and cinnamon, and an arugula salad with cucumber, grape tomatoes, bias-sliced carrots, fresh-shaved parmesan, and a dijon-rice wine vinaigrette.

Easton, you still sticking to your no beer policy?

I got a home brewing kit for Christmas. Waiting to see how my first batch turns out.

Also should recomend "Old Leghumper" Robust Porter. Yum.

No.  I drink far more sparingly now though.  Quality over quantity.  I was a teetotaler for nearly a year.  It made it much easier to lose weight.  I was down as much as 45 pounds at one point - but I've put on some weight since I got into weightlifting/bodybuilding.

I am going to be in Colorado next week - both Denver with family and boarding in Breckenridge.  That is one of the best places on the planet for craft beer lovers.

I've brewed my own beer twice.  Both times turned out good...and both times I failed to clean everything before all the little tubes and junk were ruined.  I have another full size kit (does like 10 gallon batches) in my attic just waiting to be ruined also...
