I've gotta pick up a six of Tuckerman Alt as soon as I can:

Doesn't that sound yummy? I am psyched these guys are branching out beyond just their pale ale.

Report on what I got in DE.
DFH 90, was way cheaper in Total Wine, I paid same there in a small store as I do here. Drank 3 of a 4 while at Mom's and picked up another 4 along with Dockside Double Bock,(like it) and two I had already tried, Saranac Imperial Porter and Rogue Mocha Porter which I can only get in 24 oz bottles here.

No matter how slow you run it is still faster than someone sitting on a couch

I was at the Iron Hill Brewpub in Noth Wales, PA, last week for the homebrew competition where they were pouring the most awesome Habanero Stout I've ever had. It was amazing!! My chocolate stout entry into the competition did OK, but no awards.

Sounds awesome!!! Try Rogue Chipotle Ale sometime or [even better] do as rogue.com suggests:

"Blend it with Rogue Chocolate Stout and create a mole black and tan!"

Wow, I just had a flashback to Dave's Cave Creek Chili Beer (or something like that). Remember that? With the pepper in the bottle? Gawd, that was vile stuff. Yum.

Oh, here it is: http://www.chilibeer.com

This thread could end up being something when it grows up!!!!

My new breweries of choice are:

Southern Tier - try the Choklat if you want to have the best Chocolate stout evah. All the beers I've had from here are exceptional.

Lagunita's - (thanks to IR for starting me on this) is another great brewery with a Capacino stout that is amazing. Just sampled the Hairy Eyeball as another winner. No duds from these fellows.

I start cussing at the farm animals as I pass. Really, punk cow? Now you wanna race? WTF where you the first 10 miles? That's right, you were sitting on your ass chewing some cud. lazy POS......refinnej

Hmmm...

I'm sorry ... I started this thread in the wrong place ... I was going for a CR/KR parallel universe. CR: Food Court = KR: Water Stop.

Who knew???

Review: In a nutshell - Great Divide Titan IPA is in the same league as DFH :60, or Stone IPA. It is the local hero's equal in all categories, but suffers from lack of dependable distribution. Oddly enough it's cheaper by the six, but more expensive by the case.

And that contribution would be ...???

What do you like? Where do you live? What have you got?

It's been quoted [mostly by me, and here we go again] that THIS is how the CR Beer Threads came to be:
Okay, it's like this...


You're new to the neighborhood ... there's a pub - bar, tavern, what have you - on the corner.


You walk in, take a look around ... the place is tidy, the people seem nice, there's a good menu on the wall, the jukebox is playing some nice tunes. Being new, you don't want to sit right next to the "regulars", but you don't want to sit in the corner, or in a booth either ... you pull up to the bar with a comfortable space between.


The bartender (that's me) asks "what would you like?" ... you play it safe and ask for a Coors Light or something else "easily available nationwide"


"Bottle or draft???"


Not knowing when the lines had last been cleaned - although the place looks nice enough - you reply "Bottle, please."


I reach into the ice chest, pull out your beer, crack it open and hand it and clean, chilled glass to you ... you put a bill on the bar.


"Thanks, but we don't charge for NASCAR Beer here."


"What's NASCAR beer???"


"Miller, Bud, Coors ... whatever you see on the sides of NAS-cars."


"But I like <name> ..."


"Here try this then ... no charge" and I pour you a Pilsner Urquell.


"This is Pilsner Urquell. It's from Czechoslovakia - or what used to be - I think it's in the Czech Republic, now. Anyway ... This is the ORIGINAL pilsner, a kind of lager that all those NASCAR beers used to be like. You DO know the difference between lager and ale don't you???"


"Sam Adams is Ale and Yuengling is Lager, right???"


"MikeMills, help her out ... MM's our historian. He's from England, but he lives in Texas now. The one kind of offsets the other."


At this point MikeMIlls gives a brief history lesson; therealman equates this to one of his homebrew batches; La Tortuga offers some interesting food and beer pairings; and I hit on you some more.


"Well, I really like enjoy a nice cold, dark beer."


Now, we get into the hoppy vs. malty discussion / arguments ... Paulaner vs. Hacker-Pshorr is bound to come up ... Calagione vs. Papazian ... packaging vs. taste vs. price ... See, we're all friends now.


Ohhhh, you asked what the purpose was???


I'm not sure.

Lets see...Pyramid is just down the street and then there is my favorite San Francisco Brewery: Speakeasy and my favorite import: Stella Artois My favorite local microbrewery: Triple Rock...famous for Monkey Head served in 1L bottles, but only on Thurs nights...

My favorites are normally the Heffs!

SF and PDX are definitely beer hotspots; you are very fortunate.

I'd select HopDevil or Prima Pils to go with pizza ... Old Horiz packs too much of a punch.

seemed appropriate for this thread.

Meatloaf sammich accompanied with a Bell's Two Hearted Ale is about as good as it gets in these parts.

Still a little too cold for Lawnmower Beer, but that does look cool and refreshing ... lose the fruit though.

I still have some good winter beers right now.

New Begian's 2 Below is one of my favorites this year.

I've moved on to Bell's Hopslam at the moment though.....**** good, but it ought to be for $13 a sixer.

Hey Rand.......I saw La Tortuga was in the house and sent her a PM.....

Hey there - big yawn - did someone say beer?

RM - nice to see BEER up and running - yep ... Victory can't brew a bad beer. Having my Canadian roots though, I will place an order of Poutine as well.

muzicgrl - it is finally warming up a bit here and looking like hefe weizen weather.

Hi Hally! Hi (r)oache!

JamesV - nice to hear that your chocolate stout entry did well - don't worry about the award - you'll get one soon enough.
