Re: Beer

Currently I'm drinking a beer. It's nothing to brag about since there were only two of us throwing down cash and about eleven willing to drink the beer. But, I am drinking a beer, so that counts.

Also, my grandpa says there is a pork chop in every beer.

Re: Beer

I have forsworn the deliciousness that is dark beer because I don't want a fat tummy.

I may indulge in it later, but for now, they are a no-no.

This is my current favorite beer... in the city I live in now (and don't let that discourage you - Bud Light Golden Wheat totally ripped this beer off).

Re: Beer

Oh, yeah... and did I mention this beer is expensive as all hell?

$10 for a SIX PACK!

But I pay it anyway. Well worth it, imo.

Re: Beer



Had this while visiting Oregon!!! Strong stuff... and definitely an acquired taste.

You should try it at least once!

I haven't had a Yank beer in ages, but I do recall liking Sierra Nevada, if that's the one I'm thinking of.

Had this tonight (Traquair Laird's Liquor):



A little too much licorice and spiciness for me. Probably wouldn't have it again.

Most of the micro-brews are hard to get in Canada. I like Canadian beer fine, but I missed the MBs and craft American beers terribly.

My government controlled store managed to re-stock Anchor Liberty Ale, so I'm in a better mood.

Re: Beer

Spoiler:


Quote:
Despite the quip about American beer being like making love in a canoe, the US produces a multitude and a variety of brews that belie the homogenised tastes of the most popular brands. At its annual Great American Beer Festival, the Brewers Association awards gold, silver and bronze medals to the best beers produced by the hundreds of breweriers in the US, from the largest to the micro-est.

Compiled by veteran drinks journalist (1) Rick Lyke and his son-in-law Mike Wirth (2), this map charts all the gold, silver and bronze presented by the Brewers Association since 1987. “Looking at the pages of medal winners from the past does not give quite as clear a picture as the state map showing where the winners come from,” says Mr Lyke (on this page of his blog, lyke2drink). “Clearly, beer fans in California, Colorado, Wisconsin, Oregon and Pennsylvania enjoy some of the best beers in the land.”

Top 10 medal-winning states are:

1. California – 474
2. Colorado – 322
3. Wisconsin – 232
4. Oregon – 170
5. Pennsylvania – 162
6. Texas – 133
7. Washington – 114
8. New York – 98
9. Missouri -90
10. Massachusetts – 76

Of course, this does not take into account the population size of the states listed here. The top 10, reshuffled to reflect the number of medals per million of inhabitants, looks quite different, reflecting a dominance by states with a strong micro-brewing tradition:

1. Colorado – 64.4
2. Oregon – 42.5
3. Wisconsin – 38.6
4. Washington – 16.2
5. Missouri – 15
6. Pennsylvania – 13.5
7. Massachusetts – 12.6
8. California – 12.8
9. Texas – 5.6
10. New York – 5.1

Reversing the map slogan, the “worst beer in America” is brewed in the states with the least medals, i.e. West Virginia (0), North Dakota, Oklahoma (both just 1), Alabama, Rhode Island, DC (2 each), South Dakota, Nebraska, Louisiana (4 each) and Connecticut (5).

Most highly decorated beer in America is the Alaskan Smoked Porter (15 medals; 6 gold, 4 silver, 5 bronze), followed by the New Belgium Abbey Belgian Style Ale (10 medals; 6 gold, 4 bronze) and the Genesee Cream Ale (10 medals; 2 gold, 5 silver, 3 bronze).

Even though these and most other decorated beers are produced by small “craft” breweries, it’s still the large brewing conglomerates that rake in the highest number of medals among them: Anheuser-Busch (65), Miller (55) and Pabst (50).

Brooklyn's Black Chocolate will age for a few years as well. Had some 07' at a beer dinner with the brewmaster that was amazing.

Re: Beer

I wish I could find the other Brooklyn beers here. I had only seen the lager (which I really like with dinner) and the chocolate. Their website makes me drool.
