Surly Bender Ale is one of the finest beers ever crafted. And yet it breaks my heart, because right now it's only available in the Twin Cities and Duluth, and I can't instruct my friends in other areas to go out and buy it for themselves.


Duke City Amber; favorite local beer
Negro Modelo; favorite and my usual drink
Permiator; favorite German beer that I can only now dream about.
Black and Tan; a beer mix of two beers poured to form two distinct layers; one dark, nearly black and one reddish that I drink if I go to a bar or such.

Trois Pistoles is damn fine, particularly when paired with a loaf of crusty bread and a bowl of halibut chowder.

Wow...

I am so proud to know that a beer breewed by a company from Quebec (my home province) is known in the States. I realy did not know that it was exported

Trivia: Unibroue was started by Robert Charlebois a popular singer here in Quebec.

My own personnal choices:

Commercial: Good Old Molson EX (known as Molson Canadian in the rest of north america)

Native: La Fin du Monde (same breewer as the Trois Pistoles), Boréale and Sleeman's Silver Creek

Imported: Hoegaarden and Leffe (both are Belgian beers)

Cheers !!!!!

Kilkenny (better than Guinness, IMHO)

In Jamaica, I had the local Dragon stout, which was far better than the much more popular "Guiness" ripoff that was also brewed on the island.


Fovirte Beers? Bet you couldn't fine a thread like this at WotC?

Paizonians know how to live!!!

Rock on Paizo!

I'll have a guiness.


yeah, and this is the second or maybe third time this thread has popped up over the years that I have been paying attention; it is interesting to view the same peoples posts and see how their tastes have changed... hehe not like I am keeping track or anything hehe

Root beer, specifically Barq's

What? I don't drink much alcohol.

Same boat, here.

Barq's is definitely my favorite sippin' (root) beer, but I prefer IBC for floats.

The best beer you can get is the best beer from your favorite local microbrewery. Think global, drink local.

Past that, if you're in a roughly four-state radius of Minnesota (sadly, not in Canada), you should be able to get Summit, and their Extra Special Bitter is a good session bitter.

I've also found a strong liking for the St. Peter's brewery over in England.


Kronenbourg Blanc

Blanc is the refreshing, fruity, white beer imported from France. The 5% ABV premium draught and bottled white beer has been created by the master brewers of Brasseries Kronenbourg, inspired by the 13th century Cervoise simple brewing style.

Served cloudy in a continental style, its underlying tones of coriander and cloves with a balance of subtle citrus and soft fruit flavours are intriguingly distinctive. Best served chilled at 3°c for a refreshing, clean and crisp taste.

I like it with a nice vegetable curry. :)

A couple of the guys in my gaming group have started to brew beer. I'll let you know what the first batch is like.

First Game of the season in Montreal !!!!!! A lot of Molson EX will be drank tonight.

Cheers to all the Habs fans and Booooo to Hurricanes fans (not a real boooo just a you do not like the same team as me)


I live in Belgium, so I can consider myself a beer master.

Try Maredsous (or at least Orval or Chimay... I can accept a good old Leffe), and only then you'll be able to talk about good beer. There's nothing like an abbey belgian beer.

;)


I generally choose beers based on the cartoon character on the label. Hobgoblin is pretty good and in the fall, you can't beat Shipyard Pumpkinhead. Newcastle, Guiness, Yvengling (only when I'm in New York, though, since CT doesn't get it) and Heineken are typical for me when the fun microbrews with the punky labels aren't available.

At Otto's Shrunken Head (I almost typed 'Otto's Drunken Head' which would also be appropriate) I'll also give tiki drinks a try every now and then, though I typically just buy those for a friend that prefers girl drinks.


Boddington, draught only. Never, ever to be imbibed from the bottle.

Its the only English brew I've ever tasted that is worth drinking, but it more than makes up for the others.

So those who don't live in Belgium can't consider themselves beer masters....

And those who haven't tried Maredsous shouldn't even be posting about good beer....

Belgian beer: those most obvious characteristic I noticed was EXPENSIVE. Second: fancy bottles. Third: great beer. I also met a few Belgians and I noticed some of your countrymen, as you, treat their beer like chapagne. I've had Orval, it's good. I've also had Latrappe, Duvel, L'Alsacienne and a few others (Leffe too I think) I've forgotten because I was a bartender in a restaurant with a about 400 labels of beer (on a good week).

Alas, the world moves on and Trappist monks don't and there are great beers all over the world now unless you are a beer snob. And beer, it seems to me, is the beverage of common man, making beer and elitism antithetical.

To be prefectly honest, the Belgian stuff was no better than the great German beers, and I suspect even if I tried the "impossible to find export" Maresdous I wouldn't say that the great search is over.

Because the search is 90 percent of the fun, and during my search I have found dozens of great beers coming from every country I have visited.

;)

Cheers to beer!


cold, wet


Wow, I was just joking... and I'm french by the way... I thougt it wasn't so serious there...


well, I have yet to have a Belgian beer I like; maybe it is just my bad luck in choosing.

The Exchange

As weird as this may sound to some, I bought a mixed case by Michelob (Ales and Lagers Collection)that had 5 each of these beers:
Porter
Pale Ale
Marzen (an Octoberfest brew)
Wheat.

I loved the Marzen and the Porter was wonderfully delicious (slightly chocolate flavouring to it). I am trying out the Pale Ale tonight and the Wheat tomorrow night.
So far I am loving them all and $17 for 20 beers makes me very happy!
I got it at my local BJs (wholesale club warehouse).

The Pale Ale was a typical english beer (Pi$$-water, imo) and I didn't really enjoy it, but the Bavarian Wheat was excellent! And rather potent, hee-hee, Fakey found himself staggering about a bit last night after 4 of 'em.

All in all a great case where 15 of the 20 were of excellent quality for $15.99 (I posted a higher price previously). Pretty cheap considering that most 6 packs are running $8-10 bucks for specialty beers.

I just tried a coconut porter. It was really good.


Has anyone mentioned these little boozy D&D beauties?

CHEERS!

I've only tried the WychCraft blonde myself though. :) Quite nice.


I'd love a few of these for our game group (but without the crappy bud logo). :)

The better importers in America sell them on occasion. I've found the huge bottled Hobgoblin in one of those big liquor stores where you can make your own six pack of microbrew beers.


In no particular order with the exception of the 1st one...

Shiner - Bock
Live Oak - Big Bark Amber
Independence - Pale Ale
Sam Adams - Octoberfest (yeah, it's the only non-Texas beer listed, hence the reason it's at the bottom)


ooooh; Big Bark Amber
nice name, is it available nationally? i wanna taste a quart or two.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion Subscriber

Newcastle Brown Ale (from tap preferably)
Kronenbourg 1664
Tuborg

Carlsberg had a Beer Election in 2003, where the second place went to a beer called Carlsberg Capo. That was absolutely positively delicious.
7.7% and with added elderberry juice. Sweet taste and would get you hammered quicker than you thought.

All of the mainstream American beers I've tasted have seriously let me down, they're all basically like having sex in a canoe.
Haven't tried any of the beers from US microbreweries, though.

Scarab Sages

Theakston Old Peculier is a great beer as well. IIRC they are a short drive from Samuel Smiths brewery and the beers have a similar character. Yorkshire water and all that. The ferment the beer in vats made of slate. Its an excellent beer if you like porters and stouts.

Sovereign Court Contributor

My father in law tells me that they've stopped making Trois Pistoles. I have not verified this. It's also possible I misremember and it is Fin du Monde being discontinued.

HOW DID I MISS THIS THREAD THE FIRST TIME 'ROUND?!?

My current favorites are...

The first two are by New Belgium Brewery (the guys that make Fat Tire)

  • Mothership Wit - New Belgium

  • 1554 (which Lilith has already endorsed) - New Belgium

  • Lazy Boy Belgian Strong - Lazy Boy Brewery

  • Old Rasputin Imperial Stout - North Coast Brewing Company

  • Rolling Rock

    Spoiler:
    [From memory] From the glass-lined tanks of Old Latrobe, we tender this premium beer as a testament to your good taste. It comes from the icy mountain streams to you. "33" [/from memory]

    ***EDIT***
    the actual text:
    Rolling Rock, from the glass lined tanks of Old Latrobe we tender this premium beer for your enjoyment as a tribute to your good taste. It comes from the mountain springs to you. “33”

    K... so I'm not a complete drunk.

    I'm pretty sure you can't even get it outside of Austin. Sounds like a road trip is in order.

    Draught Guinness, from a tap pressurized with Nitrogen (I've ordered it many times, unknowingly from CO2 taps... and it SUCKS). Very cold but not frozen - I let it warm up a bit and rest for the flavor.

    Kilkenny.

    Blue Chimay is good too.

    Or Canadian Beers, particularly Amber Ales.

    A cold Kro 1664 is great on warm days. With Sauerkraut too.


    In an approximate order,

    Hoegaarden
    KLB Raspberry Wheat Ale
    Guiness
    Leffe
    Rickards Red
    Strongbow Cider

    and of course, whatever the other guy's buying....

    Ok, might be a little dated, but I'm adding to my list:

    Had the chance to try mead for the first time. I know technically its probably not a beer, but it was a pub with a microbrewery on the back brewing their own stuff so I'm counting it as one. Apparently they brew up a batch once a summer. Anyway, it was interesting, Lion's Mead (might have been Lion's Head Mead - it was a long night). I think its an acquired taste, but cool to drink something I've ordered "in game" so often.

    What an encouraging (and thirst-whetting) thread! Is there some correlation between imagination and good taste, or did people half in love with the middle ages just naturally gravitate towards more traditional beers?

    In recent years, I've regularly enjoyed Koningshoeven Trappist Ale (quadrupel more than dubbel). Though this is made across the border in the Netherlands, all the Belgian ales mentioned above would make my list.

    Did Duvel and la Chouffe already get mentioned? Heck, even Stella Artois is more drinkable than your run-of-the-mill beer, especially in the summer time.

    Since we have a few root beer drinkers, and in light of the situation on Galveston Island, I must say that the best root beer I have ever had in my life comes from the fountains of La King's Confectionary on the Strand.

    Gamers do love their brew. Locally, we have Oktoberfest coming up, and while in general it is quantity that garners the most attention this time of year, it does start to whet my appetite to try some brews I haven't before.

    I knew this of my own little circle, but I guess I never had anything to compare it with it, and just figured that the generally horrendous taste of Americans when it comes to beer would fall out the same proportionately among gamers.

    There's a microbrewery local to my hometown area called the Weeping Radish. I love their "Black Radish" - porter, I think.

    I also love Guiness and Blue Moon...
    ... there's a Greek beer that I really like but the name escapes me right now.

    Rogue's Dead Guy Ale was a favorite of mine and I also usually went with Bass, LongTrail or Sierra Nevada.
    I liked Yuengling when I lived in Philly, but they don't sell it around here. Check out this guy's website btw. He mentions a local brewer who is making pizza beer! (wtf?!)
    http://www.joesixpack.net/index.htm
    Also for anyone ever in Philly, I recommend Monk's Cafe for Belgian beer goodness and Ludwig's Garten to get your German fix.


    Mmm, beer...

    I'm a cider supper lately, favouring Scrumpy Jack and Kopparberg Perry, but I do enjoy my beer as the colder months approach. (Cider being reserved only for the summer months of course).

    Abbot Ale is a wonderful smooth ale, nice easy drinking for an afternoon session. A hand rolled smoke adds a lot to it's flavour.

    Newcastle Brown is the nightclub beer of choice, since it's fairly light, and the indestructible bottles ensure a lack of breakage in case of dance-related accident :)

    Pendle Witch is a local brew, so always welcome and I've a soft spot for Leffe at times.

    If I'm drinking at home it's either Hobgoblin or Fiddler's Elbow. Maybe a bottle of Champion Badger. My indoors drinking is normally either Tequila or Johnny Walker Black Label though.

    I am partial to ciders too, though Kopparberg Perry (and Kopparbergs in general) tend to be too sweet for my taste...but a pint of Magners is always welcome.

    Of the traditional beers, I had an opportunity to recently taste a Belgian lambic beer, cannot remember the brand, but apparently the most hardcore of them all...and it was quite "this is what evil must taste like".

    Oh man, first a heavy metal thread, now this? It warms the heart...

    Here's my list:

    1. Sapporo
    2. Orion (if you've been to/stationed on Okinawa, you know what I'm talking about!)
    3. Guinness
    4. Killian's Irish Red
    5. Asahi Super Dry
    6. Most of the Pyramid brews
    7. Margaritaville Island Lager


    Stouts and Brown Ales in general, especially Beamish Stout and Boddingtons Ale. Unfortunately the later is not available in Germany. Newcastle Brown Ale makes a good substitute. I also like Früh Kölsch and Paulaner Hefeweizen.
    If we're talking non-alcoholic: Erdinger Alkoholfrei

    Not big one beer myself, but heres a list of my favorite beverages

    Smirnoff Ice/Triple Black
    Bacardi Silver/Raz
    Jägerbomb

    Sweet! My beer thread lives.

    Since I started this, I've come to expand my list of favorites:

    Young's Double Chocolate Stout, Hobgoblin and Scarecrow from Wychwood, Sam Smith's IPA, and Stoudt's Fat Dog.

    I've also started drinking more of the Abita beers. The store I go to sells a "Party Pack" that has 6 different beers (2 each): Amber, Turbo Dog, Purple Haze, and an IPA are the standards. The vary the remainders, among Abita Golden, Abita Light, and their seasonal beers. My favorite's of their seasonal's have been a Red Ale, A Wheat Beer, and Abita's Restoration Pale Ale.

    I finally purchased by brew kit recently, and I'm looking forward to brewing my first batch.
