Kölsch? You really are evil, aren't you?

I'm not much of a beer drinker. I'd rather have a pint of Bulmer's. The real stuff, of course, not that watered-down English swill.

Someone surprised me by leaving an old copy of a homebrew magazine in my mailbox today. I think it might have been my neighbor.

I looove irish Bulmers and that says something coming form Hessia, the applewine capitol
of the world.
sadly we only get the ebglish bulmers here in germany

are you irsh?


I was brought up in SW England, and the cider I like best is the heavy duty scrumpy made with fertiliser runoff and containing anonymous bits of what you hope is apple - hard to get much further North, although Old Rosie gets the job done. Bulmer's sounds like Guinness, i.e. the Irish keep the best stuff for themselves :)

Interested to hear about applewine, though - what's it like? Clear? Cloudy? Fizzy? Still?

Nope. German as well, from Berlin. There are a few places here where you can get Irish Bulmers, although it's mostly pubs and bars and therefore pretty expensive.

Funnily enough, my local supermarket has begun to stock the English version, mostly the pear variant. I can't see how they are going to sell much of the stuff.

@Limeylongears: The Irish Bulmers is sold in the rest of the world under the name of Magners. There was some kind of legal hassle over the brand name, I believe. I think both companies use the same basic recipe, because the English variant tastes more or less like the Irish one, except it's much more watery.

As for applewine, you can get various drinks with under that name. Never tried "Äppelwoi" (the official Hessian name), but there is a local Brandenburgian brew which is pretty cloudy (with 18% Alcohol; tastes like nothing, but does funny stuff to your head).

Apfelwein or in hessian Äppelwoi is a big thing in my german homestate of Hessia.

it has around 7% alcohol, usually is clar (but cloudy once exist)
in Traditional hessian taverns you get it in a kind of earthenware Pitcher called "bembel", the glass is called "Geripptes"
pic

you drink it either
-pure
-sour (with sparkling water)
-sweet (with orange lemonade)
-diesel (with coke, this is more rare)
the last two variants will get you a nasty look in Frankfurts Applewine taverns, some will refuse to mix it and bring you the lemonade separatly

where I live every village still has a small local producer where people bring their apples

Picked up some Hobgoblin yesterday. It had been awhile.

I'm rather fond of Bear Republic Brewing Co.'s Racer 5 IPA. (The tavern that's staggering distance from my house has it on tap.)

Closer to home, I'm a big fan of Magic Hat's No. 9 Ale.

This year's Samuel Adams Oktoberfest is also pretty darn good.

My good friend has an unreasonable hatred of all things Sam Adams. I'm not sure why. He's missing out on some good beer though.

Gahering apples over the next two weeks, my friend's father has built a cider press and we're going up to try it out.

I need to pick up some more Old Chub Scotch Ale in a can.

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Sweet! Found out yesterday that one of my co-workers lives close to Total Wine & More and stops there regularly.

So I asked him if, next time he stops, he could look for a few things for me and pick them up if they have them. WOOT!!!


There are so many. Quebec also has several micro-breweies and brew pub.....

here is a list of my tops

Anything from Unibroue in Québec
Guiness, Ir
Newcastle, Uk
Old Speckled Hen, Uk
XO (cognac beer)Qc
McCauslan's Pumpkin Ale, Qc
Rickard's Cardigan Bc
Grolsch, Denmark? but only in a can
Krostinger (sp?) Germany

In the summer, when I want someting ligth in tase and and alcohol... drum roll....
Miller Chill! Yes folks, an american beer is on my list which may be surprising to some since, as Monthy Python said, American beer is like making love in a canoo.

Sadly, there are no US microbrewery imports available at our liquor stores, which is to bad because I hear there are some great ones out there.


Drink Allagash Curieux.

If I remember:

Red Cullen & Black Cullen from Isle of Skye Breweries are nice.
whilst
Isle of Skye Beers from the Cullen Breweries taste of PEAs.

Köstritzer ?

it is the most popular "Schwarzbier" (dark lager) in Germany,
Schwarzbier= bottom fermented wih a specialy roasted malt

Köstritzer is produced since 1543


That's the one. Was doing this from memory from the office. My third favorite dark beer. Only available in cans in my neck O'the woods.

Wich I could. Looks like a great brew.


Enjoying a glass of Brains Dark at the moment.

The blurb on the back of the bottle reads, "The intense flavour of Brains goes well with pork and chocolate puddings"

One for the zombies amongst us, perhaps...

Hopefully, while I'm here in Sasebo, I'll get over my cold in time to enjoy some fine Japanese beer.

Osirion

On the other hand, drinking some of that fine Japanese beer seems to have cured my cold! Woohoo!

Picked up a 6 pack of Lagunitas IPA at the minimart here on base. Never had it before. Good beer.

Not an avid drinker but my players are. For them though it's something of a combo between makers mark for harder stuff and Guiness for beer. Luckily we have one of these within driving distance for just about anything they could be looking for.

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Was out the other night and had some Asahi. Good beer.


Wytchwood Brewery's Bah Humbug! is what I'm drinking at the moment, but I'm not sure whether I like it or not - regular bitter with a sort of cinnamon-y aftertaste. Weird. Still, it's wet and alcoholic, so I'll persist with it.

Taldor

Had a bottle of Lighthouse's siren red imperial ale. It was pretty damn good.

Going to have a bottle of La Trappe Tripel tonight.

Forgot about this, it made delicious apple juice. We're still waiting for the cider.

Looking forward to drinking a Dogfish Head when I get home. It's been way more than my three weeks away, since I was sick before I left.

Taldor

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Tales Subscriber

I had Betty Stoggs, St. Peter's Mild and a Thornbridge Kipling.

Betty Stoggs is an old favourite, the mild was really nice and the Kipling was a nice surprise.

Kipling is full of grassy hops with a bitter edge. Not something I'd drink a lot of but a nice change of pace.

The mild was great: roasted, malty, with a bitter edge and a hint of licorice.

Betty Stoggs is just a lovely classic summer ale. Not really appropriate for the time of year but great stuff.

I like dogfish head.

I've been into Rye IPAs lately. Harpoon makes a good one and I had one made by Saranac last night.

Taldor

Don't think I've ever had a Rye ipa.

THe Mc Chouffe was delicious. Now trying Maredsous brown abbey style beer. http://www.maredsousbieres.be/. So far, so good.

Rye IPA? That sounds interesting! Not sure if I've ever had one, but I'll have to look out for them.

Harpoon makes one called "Rich and Dan's Rye IPA" and I just had a pretty good one brewed by Saranac out of NY. The Harpoon one is availabe year around in 6 packs and the Saranac one I got out of a summer variety pack. I'm on the lookout for one made by Sierra Nevada but every store here in NH seems to carry a different selection of Sierra Nevada beer (mostly the pale ale and the IPA).

Andoran

I'm partial to Sly Fox's offereings, particularly their Pheonix Pale Ale and Grisette.

I'll also be going to a tasting of Dogfishhead at my local beer snob taproom tommorrow as a birthday outing.


Possibly my first ever homebrew, a dry stout. I apparently made a good choice, there! Come to think of it, all three homebrews I've made so far were absolutely amazing. Who knew I'd revere a plastic 6 gallon bucket?

Or if we're talking strictly commercial beers, I think I'd have to go with Guinness. There are a lot of good choices out there for "favorite", but it's my old standby. A classic. I'm never not in the mood for Guinness. And I've only had the import version -- I need to try the real stuff someday!

Which I do. In my suburban yard. Hops, Malt, sorghum, boil down maple tree sap for syrup, and raise bees for honey.
