Another awesome thing about my trip home - they still had Abita Strawberry Harvest Lager for sale! Woot! I can only find it during a few weeks timeframe here in Philly, so I usually pick up a case or 4. But down there in NOLA it's much more plentiful.

If you like the Abita Strawberry and you're willing to splurge a bit for a more expensive beer, you really should try Fruli. It has a much more natural strawberry flavor than the Abita. (I'll happily drink the Abita, but the Fruli-- especially on draft-- is a whole different experience.)

Personally, my favorite of the Abita beers I've tried is their Pecan Harvest, which I first had a few years back when some friends and I ran away to New Orleans for Thanksgiving. It's seasonal, and hard to get around here, but whenever it makes it this far north, I'm a happy, happy person.

Three Floyds' Ragnarock, a beer made in Indiana with help from Amon Amarth. Hard to beat my own homebrews, though.


"Groeninger Copper", local brewery, on tap only; limited amount each night. ( basically only available in Hamburg )

Majestea is surprisingly good! I say surprisingly as I've had the standard T.E.A. brew before and rated it as a passable C. This is certainly an A-. God save the Queen!

You're doing it wrong.

Red Stripe should be drunk at four in the morning, out of a can, at a drum n bass all-nighter, surrounded by people just coming down from their second lot of pills.

Or...

Out of a can, surrounded by old carribean men who are drinking rum and playing dominoes like thier lives depended on both. Bought from a barman who also charges you for his next glass of rum.

Those are your only options, sorry.

Done that, and thankfully departed the open-air shanty bar soon thereafter -- one of the domino players got knifed to death over the game later that night. Village life in the Caribbean is seldom as bucolic as people envision. But there were no cans there -- only bottles.

9 gets you drunk quick (16 proof and it's sold by the litre? Yesss), while 8 is just delicious.

There's a wrong way to drink beer?

Crap! I actually shouldn't have said that. Now my overactive imagination is busy contemplating a multitude of wrong ways, each more horrific than the next.

AAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH.....Not strained through dirty underwear.....

NOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooo........


Did I mention Ommegang?

Or Hennepin specifically?

Drove by Cooperstown today on my way back from Cape Cod. Gotta stop in for the tour one of these days.

My absolute favorite beer glass is my gold-rimmed Ommegang teardrop with the Lion-O insignia. In fact, I'm gonna pour a Saranac Kölsch into it right now! Good to be back in NY!

Ha fun topic.

I'm not a big fan of beer or alcohol, but a few beers I like.

Blind Tiger is a local brewery that has some nice dark ales and pale ales I like, and various seasonal beers.

Commercial wise, I love Woodchuck Hard Ciders:P Not sure if that's considered a beer or not heh.

Andoran Contributor

My favorite beer is whatever you put into my hand (unless its got some screwy pumpkin spice or something in it, in which case its not really a beer).


Guiness
Sam Adams- October Fest
Hobgoblin (not just cause I'm a gamer either. On tap it is my favorite. From Wychwood Brewery in the UK if anyone is interested.)


I like "Rogue Dead guy ale." I tend to stay away from it while I game though because I end up waking up under the gaming table not remembering anything about the adventure lol.

And I'm not that naive. I've never been to the Carribean, that was a description of a place in Rugby, Warwickshire, UK.

I once had the pleasure of quaffing a Hobgoblin while playing a hobgoblin in Jason Nelson's Kingmaker game. That was awesome!

After I moved from NY to VA, I made a road trip up to Cooperstown with a buddy. We took the Ommegang tour (which seemed to have more to do with smurfs than it did with beer -- those crazy Belgians!) and loaded so many cases in his trunk to bring back I thought the rear axle would snap.

Ooh, and I miss Saranac. I miss Upstate New York. If there were enough work there to keep me busy, I'd go back in a minute. Even in a New York minute.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Well, as the adage goes, "There are three kinds of beer: good beer, free beer, and cheap beer. I don't drink cheap beer."

I do live in upstate New York, and I'll second Evil Lincoln's admiration of Omegang. It's widely available in my town.

There are so many good beers out there, that it's hard to say which is my favorite.

At the local ale house, my go-to is usually Bear Republic Racer 5 (an IPA). I have to pace myself with that one-- it's 7% alcohol!

More local, I'm partial to the Ithaca Beer Company's Pale Ale and Apricot Wheat.

However, Saranac Pale Ale is the beer I tend to buy by the case and almost always have several bottles in my beer fridge (which I keep at 50-deg F).


Doesn't hurt that the Saranac 12 packs are usually the cheapest real beer at Wegman's.

Upstate shout out!

One of my very favorite summer beers, although they haven't distributed it this far south for a couple of years, is the Saranac Summer Shandy. We can get the Leinenkugel (sp?) Shandy, but that tastes like furniture polish. The Saranac Shandy is just lemony, beery deliciousness.

Methinks it will need to be over 95 degrees before I will break my personal prohibition of shandy, so I will have to take your word for it!

Sssh! While I agree with you personally, Mrs Gersen thinks that swill is just the bee's knees, as it were. Thankfully, I think she's come to prefer Bad Orchard's ginger hard cider.

This weekend I was reminded why Batemans is probably the best beer in the UK.

I also had Umbel Magna, which was surprisingly tasty, I'd enjoyed Umbel before but didn't really expect the same trick (toasted coriander seeds) to work in a porter: happily it did.

Do you mean the Angry Orchard ginger cider? That's very good too, although my current favorite cider is probably Crispin's Honey Crisp.

I also had a sour cherry wheat beer made by Flying Dog brewery over the weekend that was pretty amazing, as fruit beers go.

(Really, I drink things other than fruit beer, but the summer weather makes me want lighter, fruitier drinks. :) I'll talk about stouts in the wintertime.)

Yes! -- sorry, I'm used to my wife's pet name for it -- she says it in the same voice as the "bad robot!" at the end of Lost.


Yesterday I tried Alaskan Brewing Company's Alaskan Amber, which was excellent. Per their recommendation, I had it with an excellent salmon dinner I'd cooked, and it really tied the meal together.

RPG Superstar 2011 Top 8

Widmer Pitch Black IPA is my current favorite. I have some of the new Sam Adams (Norse Legend and Verloren) but haven't tried them tonight.

Favorite Beer(s)?

#1 Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout (probably the finest beverage ever brewed)
#2 Stone Brewing Arrogant Bastard Ale (you are not worthy)
#3 Stone Brewing Smoked Porter
#4 Barley Creek Brewing Antler Brown Ale (currently available only at the brew pub in Tannersville Pa on tap or in 22 oz bottles by request - they will fill a quarter or half keg for you by request as well) They sadly stopped 6 pack production altogether on all their beers.

Right back at you. I really wish Saranac Irish Red Ale wasn't seasonal...

I've tried each of those top 3, and they are indeed awesome. I even homebrewed a clone of the oatmeal stout.

Your number 4 sounds intriguingly delicious.

Last night I had something I'd been saving for a few weeks - Pike Brewing's Pike Pale Heirloom Amber Ale. Very not bad. A respectable 5% ABV.


I just bought a mixed six-pack of specialtys from a local nortern bavarian brewery: Schalppeseppel

2 Weizbier, ("white beer") top-fermented, yeasty wheat beer
2 Kellerbier (cellar beer) unfiltered but otherwise regular beer (barley, bottom-feremnted)
2 Landbier (country beer) copper colored smoky

all of them have one many awards in different countrys, they are in the fridge now, waiting to be tasted


and now I have talked so much about beer that i have opend one,

a "König Ludwig Weissbier" a pale yeasty wheat beer from the royal bavarian brewing house in Kalternberg
I got it as a free sample at the beverage store yesterday

it tastes quite good, light, yeasty fruity almost a bit like bananas (and no, I did not put banana juice in it, we germans stopped putting banana juice into wheat beers at the end of the 90s, really)

And todays favourite is: Anglers Reward from the World Top brewery. It's a pale ale, and it is wonderfully sharp and refreshing, with a lemon-like fruitiness to it. Only 4% too.


I enjoy Piraat 10+%. Then after that I defend things and stuff from peasant mobs! Then when Its all drunk up...bring out the King in cans..Ya


My current favorites are Belgian style yeti (which is even better on tap) and Smokestack Series Bourbon Barrel Quad from Boulevard Brewing Company. Though I'll drink anything produced by Great Divide, and just about have.

Last night I had Stone's Old Guardian Barley Wine Style Ale. Very good. 11%. Very headache-inducing.

Had some Diamond Knot IPA at PaizoCon. Good stuff.

Saturday we bottled up our homebrew: The Dream Kölsch of Unknown Kadath. 5 gallons.

To be opened August 3rd, as refreshment for my final session of Rise of the Runelords.


Sampled a number of local beers in New Orleans this weekend -- aside from the ubiquitous Abita (Turbo Dog rawks!), some Tin Roof and NOLA Brewery examples that were also quite tasty. Who knew that Lousiana was a major repository of the brewers' art?


Oh man, that is a great idea, EvilLincoln. Sad to see your campaign ending, though. Be sure to post on the AP forum when it's over. I'd love to hear how it went after all the lurking in your Runelords threads.

Saturday, at a block party put on by one of my gaming buddies and his neighbors, I broke out a bottle of Hellhound on my Ale that had been sitting in my basement for a few months. Damn, that's a great beer.

Here at my hotel bar in San Diego. Had a Coronado Brewing Company Idiot IPA. Very tasty and a respectable 8.5% ABV. It reminds me of something, but I can't recall what just now.

Though I dont drink Alcohol I like the smell of Brandy so I learned how to brandy Grapes so I can make Brandied Grape Bread (You stick fresh grapes in a antibacterial see-thru tupperware and seal it tight and sit it on the dining table for a few weeks tumbled and dusted in a tablespoon of fine white sugar).


Ahhhh I miss upstate NY...from the finger lakes, went to school in Rochester.
now getting back on topic....
Some current faves in no particular order

Victory - ole horizontal
Strongbow- English pub cider
Wierbacher- imperial pumpkin
Omegang- three philosophers
Castleel - rogue
