It's not the best beer, but by far the best name:

Re: Let's talk microbrews

If anyone decides to make the trip for the Dogfish tour, let me know. The owner is an acquaintance of mine and the brewery is about ten minutes from my house.

Re: Let's talk microbrews

Saranac is great stuff... but I'm also pretty fond of Otter Creek (Stovepipe Porter and Copper Ale).
My ATF, however, is Yuengling (love the Porter).

Re: Let's talk microbrews

I have to say that I feel that Dogfish Head is easily the best brewery in the U.S. If you like IPAs, nothing beats them.

I have yet to taste a better beer than the 60 Minute IPA.

90 Minute is pretty good too, but man that 60 is just flawless.

Dogfish Head 60 is an excellent beer.

I like a DC/Baltimore area brewery called Clipper City. They make some great beers. My personal favorite is of theirs is called "Small Craft Warning." It's a malty, bock style lager. Excellent. The "Loose Cannon Ale" is great too.

Check 'em out and all you DC/Baltimore folks- support your local brewers!
Hail Beer! (And Skins of course).

Re: Let's talk microbrews

A buddy of mine has been on the Clipper City Brewery tour...I may have to check it out.

As far as Dogfish Head is concerned, if you get a chance, either take the tour (crash on Brud's couch...his family won't mind) or hit up their Alehouses in Gaithersburg or Falls Church (Seven Corners). The food is quite good, and getting their beer on tap is incredible.

I used to live right down the street from the G'burg one, and was up there pretty often. Not sure if they still do it, but I used to get their 75 Minute IPA...half 60 Minute and half 90 Minute. And for those not ready to be adventurous, try their Lawnmower Light (only available on Tap at their locations). A great way to ease yourself into their beer selection.

Re: Let's talk microbrews

I picked up a sixer of this last night, very good stuff



TOASTED LAGER

Blue Point Brewing's award-winning Toasted Lager is our flagship product. Copper in color this brew is made from six different malts including: English Pale, Crystal, Munich, Carapils, Wheat and Belgian Caravienna. Toasted Lager displays a balanced flavor of malt and hop which makes for easy drinking. Special lager yeast is used to produce that long lasting, smooth finish. The "toasted" part of the name refers to our direct-fire brew kettle’s hot flames that impart a toasted flavor to our most popular microbrew.

I tried a sixer of the 60 minute last weekend and I was really impressed. I'll be hitting that up again no doubt.

We went to their Falls Church restaurant on Friday - great food, reasonably priced, and the beers were very good.

Sounds like you're ready for a transition to the 90 minute. Alcohol content is around 9%, similar to a Chimay triple. It's an IPA, but obviously bold due to alcohol content. The whole 60-90 minute thing has to do with a stage of the brewing process. The longer it's left in a certain stage, the higher the fermentation rate, thus higher alcohol %. That's why the 90 is so strong.

Re: Let's talk microbrews

I tried a bottle of the 120 minute IPA last night and let me tell you, one bottle and I was good for the night. It has something like 21% alcohol and this thing knocked my socks off. I think I drank it a little too quick though. It's definitely one you'll want to sip on.

Re: Let's talk microbrews

That's funny - when you order it in the restaurant, you get about 3 ounces in a brandy snifter. You power bombed about 4 beers.

Probably made 30 Rock a little more entertaining.
