You make it sound like IPA is a bad thing? My preferred style of brew also.

Oh, I have noticed that variety in your life...Zin, Australian wine and bitter beer. Razz Wink

All kidding aside, I enjoy beer with IBU below 100'ish, but some of these 200, 300, 1000+ are not for me.

Wow. I'm a hop-head and frankly don't think they'd be for me either. I'm with you at or below 100 IBU. Otherwies, it's kinda like the hot sauce that burns the buds off your tongue. More isn't always better.

Magnifique.


I'm a big fan of Unibroue.


Are their beers readily available down there W+A? Same question for you Irwin?


Got it in a restaurant. The restaurant had a beer list with a total of 5 choices. I really liked it.

Curious to know what you thought of the Two Brothers. That is one of their standard year-round offerings. The brewery and tap house is 3 miles from me.

I like their stuff. I know I have had the Ebel's Weiss (not sure if that's the exact name or not) and another one that I can't remember, but I think I've enjoyed them all. Definitely worth checking out.

For tonight i bought apair of sixes of oaked Arrogant bastard ale. Will admit it, i bought it strictly for the name And the oak propaganda. Has anybody tried it? What should i expect?

I tried this a couple weeks ago at the Stone brewery. I'm interested to hear what you think; I thought it was definitely a unique smell & taste for a beer, although it's probably not something I could drink too much of
Hopworks Urban Brewery IPA
Boundary Bay IPA
Hale's Supergoose IPA
Racer 5 IPA

Wife and I did a blind tasting (really) and I choase the Hopworks as my favorite (by quite a bit) followed by the Racer 5, then the Supergoose (which technically is an Imperial). Anything the HUB does is just friggin' awesome. The seasonal 'Ace of Spades' IIPA is an earth-moving beer.

Just picked up a 6 pk myself. Re the oyster thread, what are some of your go to american lagers?

Edit: Hate to say "lite lager" so we'll just go with "pilsner color".


Not addressed to me, but I like the Lagunitas Pils a lot.
Good call on the Lagunitas, Jc. It's not my "go to" genre so there are probably better people to ask, koc. When I'm the mood for something in that genre, I'll just get a Kolsch or a "lawnmower" beer from the pub. Dogfish made a lager called Johnny Rawton that I liked a lot. Not sure if it's still being made or not. Had a few Heavy Seas Lagers on a sailboat this summer that were very refreshing on a hot day. That's all that is coming to mind right now.

PH,

That should be a great night. I distribute Dogfish Head and they only allow me to sell the 90 due to capacity (cannot even get enough to sell that much less the 60). It is so bad that I had to buy some 60 in NC. If you know where they sell the 120 in DC, please let me know.
Dogfish's production has always been a little erratic. There was a period that even the Dogfish Pub was out of 60 minute! Kind of like McDonalds being out of french fries for god's sake! I actually prefer the 90 in bottle to on tap. Not the case with the 60 at all, which I much prefer on tap.

The 120 is actually slated for re-release in keg shortly according to the Dogfish website. They've dialed back on the ABV a little, apparently.

I know the pub often has 120 in bottle, and I'd be more than glad to pick some up for you. purplehaze1956 at yahoo dot com.
