Is that a real beer, Zack?


It wasn't terrible, even though I understand the instinct to make light of a fruit wheat beer in a can.

21st Amendment makes some solid brews. Their new spring seasonal Bitter American turned into a favorite of mine pretty quickly.

Firestone Walker, outta California, just made it out to Colorado this past summer. Their Double Barrel Ale became a quick favorite of mine. Dangerously drinkable.

If you get a chance try their Imperial Stout - Parabola. Tough to find but it's an unbelievable beer.

Will do...I have heard good things about that and know it did made it out here to Colorado in limited capacity, though I have yet to see it on any shelves.

Their DBA, their IPA Union Jack, their wheat Solace, and their Double IPA Double Jack are the 4 Firestone Walkers I have seen. I have only tried the DBA so far though.

Still haven't found the Parabola, though its out here, but have since tried the Union Jack IPA and Velvet Merlin Oatmeal Stout from Firestone Walker. Both very good. FW has quickly become a personal favorite brewery of mine. Their Double Jack, IIPA, will be next on my try list from them as that one is readily available out here.

The best beer I have had was living abroad in Germany, especially the little locals in each town/brewery. However, the best I've ever had is anything by Andech's brewery, which like most of the better brews was a monastery. There Hefe-weizen and Double Bocks are simply sublime. Weihenstephaner, the oldest continually brewery in the world also makes some the best beers, along with making a sampler, which is great for novices. Either way, I am partial to the wheat and double bocks.

Whenever I go to a restaurant or pub with an extensive beer menu I always look for something I've never had before. I'm also a sucker for seasonal beers.

My favorites are wheat beers, pale ales, and lagers. Some of my favorites are Hoegaarden, Delirium Tremens, Chimay, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Blue Moon, Blue Point Summer Ale, Brooklyn Lager, Sam Adams Boston Lager, Anchor Steam Beer, Sam Adams Winter Ale, Magic Hat #9, Victory Hop Devil, Lagunitas IPA - mostly stuff you can get from FreshDirect or the supermarkets in the City.


Agree Banger, a big fan of seasonals as well.

Has anyone else gotten to taste Bell's Sparkling Ale? I saw it on a menu at one of the classier beer joints in DC and I just had to get it. It's a trippel (9%) but was really cheap so I assumed it would be kind of junky. Usually high alcohol content and low price points do not get along. But it was great! Great for the bar, too, since by the end of the night they ran out and told me that I "drank it all."

Oops.

I wish Bell's was available here in Colorado.

My father grew up during depression-era northern Germany in Flensburg (really a Danish fishing town that flipped back and forth over the centuries) in an apartment next to a brewery. One year he brought back a case of the beer--Flensburger Pilsener. The best overall beer I have ever tasted. Very slight skunkiness, a bit of sweetness, and a freshness that was unmatched. The bottles had those thumb-latch porcelain stops so you could reseal it.

Makes me miss my dad.

My local brewery brews one of--if not THE--best IPA's in the country. Get it fresh.
