Re: Let's talk microbrews

So bad news, I won't be watching the Skins game this weekend. The good news? My wife is taking me to a beer and bacon event. They will serve us different bacon dishes and pair them up with local craft brews, as a bonus she also ordered the gourmet cheese side plate.

Can't go wrong with that at all. It's just rock solid. I always have some on hand since it's the best option at the gas station around the corner from my place.

Re: Let's talk microbrews

amnesia ipa from somewhere in california. i really really really liked it. ive never seen it before. i recommend. sadly they dont list the abv which i thought was required in the america.

drinking blackend vodoo now . . its okay, not buying it again though.

im gonna look hard for that rasputin beer tomorrow. kinda like a treasure hunt. for what ever reason i imagine it being like sammy smith's oatmeal stout.

Re: Let's talk microbrews

the rasputin stout is good borderlining on great for me. but i feel like its just a really good stout and not worth the 10.99/4 pack but i will keep it in my arsenal for the occasional purchase.

any wine fans? i find myself buying a bottle of red with a good sixer on any grocery run nowadays. if anyone can recommend a good of red at 10 or under im all ears. i normally do the standard mark west pinot noir, mondavis pinot, diseno's malbec and a few other well known but respected reds.

any red wine suggestions?

Try the Cab Franc from any va winery. Their my favs.


When it starts getting cold around here like it is now, Guinness is the go to. Feeling warmer already.

Re: Let's talk microbrews

I tend to favor drier Reds. A good bordeaux goes a long way. Check out Chianti. My wife didn't care for red wine until she had her first sip of Chianti. Most cheaper end chiantis run $8-12. Just make sure the chianti is made in Tuscany.

Went to my favorite beer store over the weekend and made a mixed 6er, mostly stouts. Here are the 3 I had yesterday:

Fuel Café | Lakefront Brewery - Great dark coffee flavor. I enjoyed it and could see buying 6ers of it. Although I'm still waiting for Kujo Imperial Coffee Stout | Flying Dog Brewery to come out, but Fuel Cafe is a great alternative.

Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout : Brooklyn Brewery - Good chocolate flavor, it was ok. I'm a big fan of Young's and compared to this, I'd rather have Young's.

LTD Limited Lager Series - Looked like a stout, went down like a lager. Could be a nice stepping stone for those people who think Guinness is too dark or "thick". I really enjoyed it.

Re: Let's talk microbrews

I had a pretty good boxed red wine last night. Big house or something like that. weird shaped box. Crowd-pleaser for sure...

It was about 20 bucks and much better than any of the other boxed wines I've had (bota, Blackbox, etc).

Re: Let's talk microbrews

Here are the other 3 from my mixed 6er:

Baba Black Lager - Very good, another beer along the lines of 21st Amendment Back in Black. Very drinkable. The store I got these from has several beers from Uinta, and I'll go back and try some more.

Wolaver's Alta Gracia Coffee Porter - I really enjoyed this. Strong coffee and caramel flavor.

Full Sail IPA - India Pale Ale - I also really enjoyed this IPA. Has a good hoppy taste, but the aftertaste is quite smooth. Not as harsh as Flying Dog's Snake Dog or Dogfish Head's 60 Minute.

Re: Let's talk microbrews

Let's see. What have I had since my last post...

Brew Dog Punk IPA: After watching their show on Esquire Network, when I ran across this at the store I bought my losing Mega Millions ticket, I had to pick it up. Not very hop forward, quite smooth, good citrus flavor. Would be a nice intro into the IPA world for those who don't like the hoppiness of most IPAs.

Lancaster Brewing Double Chocolate Milk Stout: Had this while waiting on a carry out order at my favorite sandwich shop. Took me back to my childhood. Well, in an adult sort of way. Just like swigging a glass of your favorite chocolate milk. Quite tasty.

Full Tilt Berger Cookie Chocolate Stout: Berger Cookies are a Baltimore institution, and so this Baltimore brewery used them to inspire this chocolate stout. And the taste is quite similar to the cookie. Another quality stout.

Starr Hill Snow Blind: A dopplebock lager, had it on tap at Hard Times. Pretty tasty, went great with the wings I had.

Re: Let's talk microbrews

Not sure if DFH is a microbrew any more, but I tried the DFH sixty one.

It's essentially the 60min IPA with grape must or something. Kinda weird, but really good.

Give it a shot.
