While playing 27 holes of golf in Vegas yesterday, I was drinking mostly water and gatorade. However, I was pleased to find some Fat Tire Amber Ale on the beer cart. Smile

Sam Adams autumn variety pack. The pumpkin is interesting, I prefer the Octoberfest the most.

I really enjoy the Oktoberfest as well. I've seen it on draft at several places in Vegas this week. I will definitely enjoy a couple before I leave.

Saint Bernardus Tripel

Today, I was shopping at the local Whole Foods, which is one of the pilot sites to sell and serve a variety of draft beer. You can sample a number of beers, and then have it served and sold in a re-useable "growler", or rubber stoppered bottle (think Grolsch). Brilliant!

About 10 beers on tap, half IPAs. My first experience with Saint Bernardus was a bit overwhelming (the Christmas Ale). The Tripel was absolutely delicious. Looking forward to refilling my growler soon.

Stopped by Three Floyds on Saturday on the way home from apple picking to eat at the brewpub, but the wait was going to be too long. So, I picked up some beer to go:

Gumball Head
Zombie Dust
Jinx Proof
Arctic Panzer Wolf

Had a Zombie Dust & Jinx Proof while watching the Lions game yesterday. I think I preferred the Zombie Dust.

No offense but this cracked me up. Reminds me of when my grandfather discovered the internet and email.

Trumer Pils-truly remarkable. Probably my beer of the year (BOTY).


Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.

Too funny! I was just going to come on and post this, too. I liked it quite a bit - a nice, easy-drinking and lighter version of an Oktoberfest beer. Then again, there isn't much that Widmer makes that I don't like.


Cheers!

It's alright, an easy drinker as you say. But I was hoping for a little more heft.

A sea of Guinness. Love it but was very disappointed to see that all draught Guinness in Ireland is now served cold. No more room temp taps. Frown

Blame Budweiser!

The Irish I asked about it thought it was probably done for sanitary reasons. Room temp beer lines can breed bacteria.

I ain't buying it though. Last time I was in Ireland (mid 90's) there was already a move, because most pubs had both cold and room temp Guinness taps as a choice. That was in response to the appearance of the Ice Cold Budweiser taps, which had become popular with the disillusioned Irish youth. Fast forward 15 years and all the room temp taps are gone. Not only that, but there are Coors Light, Heineken and MGD taps taking up the elbow room. Sad. God save the village green! Wink
