Lightbulb THE Beer Thread


"Beer. The solution to, and cause of, all of life's problems." - H. J. Simpson


My most favorite liquid in the world. I had my best beer in Hamburg, Germany (that was tapped out of a wooden keg, I shit you not). And my life-long obsession all started with a Corona down in Cancun, brought to me from a Mexican waiter who didn't give a shit that I was only 14.

Truely, this heavenly beverage NEEDS a spot on these forums. As so I am henceforth making this thread in dedication to Beer.

In today's market there has been a heavy increase in the demand for micro-brewed beers. I myself used to work at a brewery (and brewed at home - soooo much fun and easy!), as has most my family, and have came to a realization towards the end of college that that cheap-ass beer (keystone, coors, bud, miller, etc.) really don't do justice to REAL beer (I can't wait for the hate responses to that line).

Hefeweizen is one of my favorite styles of beer - the rich wheaty taste, the beautiful golden aura it produces when hailed in the bar lights, that wonderful after-taste that leaves you refreshed with a perfect blend of citrus-ness. And I would be most critical of this type more so than any others (Magic Hat's version tastes like soap, my fav if from Trinity Bar in Providence RI). If there is one thing a girl could do to (guarantee) get me into bed would to buy me this beer (unless they're like 300lbs or something, fuck that).

My life-long love for beer will never end. Please enjoy this thread with me, tell me your beer stories

Questions to consider:

What do you like about beer?
Don't agree with the drinking age laws?
Where and what was your best beer?
Micro-brew or piss-water?
Is it OK to make fruit beer?

Re: THE Beer Thread


This is a FANTASTIC Thread. Nothing goes better like Beer and Planetside lol.

I may not have a knowledge like you just shown of beer. But I know a fair amount.

My Favorite type of beer is Bud light (LOL kidding, i dont drink that garbage or any other cheap beers.)

But back on topic. I really damn enjoy dark beers. Any Microbrew I can get my hands on Ill gladly be happy to try Some local places around which I would drink almost every day. They are soo good.

The one beer I can drink any time of the year is. Sam Adams Boston Lager. Dont ask me why. But Love it way too much. Great damn tasting dark amber beer. Which im sure everyone has had it before.

I cant wait to get home in 3 hrs to have one. damnn this thread ha

Re: THE Beer Thread


I love my Boston Lagga (accent). Seeing that I'm from the great Commonwealth of Massachusetts, I have indeed toured this facility.

A couple great points I would like to make:
-Budweiser spills more beer than Sammy Adams sells (per year)
-Their Boston Lager is one of the only American beers to have won highly acclaimed awards in Europe (I'm thinking Germany, I might be wrong)
-I have had their bottle opener on my keychain and it will remain there forever
-And I totally didn't pass on their "sample" pitcher down the line during their tasting part of the tour

A fellow masshole!

In Texas now but raised in Massachusetts. Love me some Boston Lager as well. Now that I am in Texas I quite often drink Shiner beer - a Texas institution and some awesome stuff.

Some of my favorite beers are also wheat beers, I love me some wheat beer..

This week when we head out on vacation we are actually going to go on a trek to find some Yuengling in Tennessee. I've heard it's good but it's not available everywhere so I want to give it a try.

The only beers I am not fond of are dark stouts never been a fan really.

Re: THE Beer Thread


I'm a wheat beer guy as well (Boulevard out of KC makes a great unfiltered wheat, if you ever see it). Also like Bocks (Woo Shiner!) and stouts.
I don't tend to like pale ales.

When it comes to a tailgaiting/cheap shitty bear I tend toward the PBR...it at least tastes like something, even if it's still kinda shity.

An yeah it's ok to have some fruity-ness. I've had a few, like a blueberry wheat in Maine that was good. Sam Adams cherry wheat ain't bad either.

Re: THE Beer Thread


What do you like about beer?
Hops are close relative to weed, thus it is a drink induced high, yay. Not to mention tastes great...

Don't agree with the drinking age laws?
18, nuf said.

Where and what was your best beer?
I like my dark stuff, so far my favorite is Ommegang Three Philosophers (look it up! http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/42/3457 ). Saranac's Black Forest and Murphy's Stout are close seconds.

Micro-brew or piss-water?
Microooooooooooooooooooooooooo! Labatts if I have to drink on the cheap.

Is it OK to make fruit beer?
Yes, one the best beers I have ever had was a cherry blossom beer. The reason it is is not above because I cannot remember the brand or can find it anyways

Blue Moon, Guinness, Arrogant Bastard, or Sam Adams Winter Lager for me. No piss beer. I love seeing those people bitch over having to drink Coors Light instead of Miller Light .

Re: THE Beer Thread


My favorite are dark beers. Probably my favorites are strong smoky stouts and porters. Sam Adams used to have their Scottish Ale that was my favorite (it was like drinking a good cigar), but they changed the recipe in the last few years and it's not nearly as good now. Guess it was too strong for people to like...now it just tastes like a regular brown ale. Moose Drool brown ale is pretty good for that.

I love wheat beers too. One of my favorite untraditional wheat beers is the Sam Adams imperial wheat. Hard to find and expensive, but crazy good (and strong, but you'd never know it).

I can't stand pilsners for the most part, unless they're mixed with sprite or lemonade. German Radler FTW!

I love Sam Adams Summer Ale, Heineken, George Killian's Irish Red and O'Fallon Gold.

I fucking hate Guinness and virtually every dark beer that exists.
