re: Let's talk microbrews good beer

My last few were

DFH Black & Blue
Trappistes Rochefort 10
Delirium Nocturnum

I'd had the last 2 before though

The black and blue was nice for an occasional beer.. nice tart from the berries, well-carbonated, nice and crisp malt, not much alch taste for being 10pct abv.. just a little.. a bit overpriced though

the trappistes rochefort is one that I go to every now and again, very well balanced beer, one of the 7 trappist monk breweries in the world (think Chimay if you're not familiar).. flavor has a lot of "winter weather" components like figs, raisins, a little nuttiness, a bit of malty sweetness, the head lasts awhile like any good head should .. I've never tried the 8 or the 6 (diff alch levels, the 10 is 11.2 I think) though, but no big reason to, plus the 10 is easier to find.. all around a great beer

by now pretty much everyone has tried nocturnum I believe, got it to split with a friend who had only tried the tremens

They had the Dominion Brewing Company, a Virginia-based brewer, brew the Hop Pocket. However, a couple of years ago, the Dominion owners sold their brewery (the Dominion name and beers still exist, but are simply being brewed and sold by another brewer), and Bob and Ellie went looking for another brewer. Two years later, they've found another brewer, and Tupper's will officially be back on the market. They are having parties in the area to celebrate its return in the next few weeks. The first is at Hard Times in Bethesda on Jan. 19th, and then the DC Brickskellar bar on the 20th. I'm going to the latter event.

If you live in the area and haven't tried Tupper's, I recommend its purchase when its finally back on area beer shelves. More info about the upcoming events through the link below.

Thanks for the tip man, I'll keep my eyes out.

I like the sound of that.

I mean I guess you could say Heineken or Grolsch took me out of Miller Lite Land; but I wouldn't call it good enough to be that bridge by any means. Never have been a big fan of Guinness and drank a bit of Newcastle before "moving on up." For the life of me I can't remember what my first microbrew was.

You know that Bud light wheat isn't half bad I have to admit.

Yeah I'll actually give that one a bit of credit myself.

re: Let's talk microbrews good beer

So tonight was Sam Adams Double Bock, from the Imperial Series, which I've had before

It's not bad but a couple of things could make it so much better.. great head, very malty, very alcoholy.. it's almost like they tried to hide the alcohol behind the sweetness, but it didn't quite work, the alcohol comes in strong towards the end

an interesting beer to try, but we'll leave it at 2 times not completely sold on it

picked up a 12pk of otter creek variety.. winter ale, copper ale, pale ale

otter creek winter ale - solid brew, chocolatey malts, some berry (raspberry or such), a bit toasted in the malt, could finish a bit sweeter.. good for 1 or 2 bottles a sitting

otter creek copper ale - solid head, nice natural taste with earthy hops, a bit starchy (bread taste?) with higher carbonation, finishes pretty quickly.. liked this one the most out of the bunch

otter creek pale ale - like many other american pale ales, starts off with a bit of sweetness.. caramelish.. becomes apricoty and maybe a bit of honey, crisp dry and hoppy floral finish.. very easy to drink, would recommend

re: Let's talk microbrews good beer

Legend Brewery here in Richmond puts out some decent stuff and recently have started bottling in 6 six packs (before they only did 22 ounces). Check it out, especially their Brown Ale. I rarely drink anything other than Pales or IPAs, but when I take a hops break Legend's Brown Ale is in the rotation with Guiness and Newcastle. Try it out.

re: Let's talk microbrews good beer

I had the Sam Adams winter lager recently for the first time, and I really liked it. I actually don't go to Sam Adams too frequently--it's not that I dislike Sam, but I'm just not as big a fan as many others are. The winter lager, however, was very tasty.

The Boston Lager might be the worst tasting beer of all time.

I had a 6er of the Bock yesterday. It was good, but didn't blow me away. There wasn't much depth, but maybe I was reaching too much.
