My friend Evan convinced me to have some Pisgah Pale Ale a couple weeks ago. It was quite tasty. I haven't been drinking much at all lately, but I plan to return to it fo' shizzle. Sorry, but only a few of you will be able to find this one, I'm guessing.
Oh. And. Weird beard.

I am still quite enamored with the PBR... however I have picked up a taste for the Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar... which is the most amazing beer I have EVER imbibed. Pic for reference. Image

Wooo, one of my local packies carries a good portion of the Rogue line. I have yet to try any of their beers other than Shakespeare Stout. Something about a beer being named "Shakespeare"... I just had to buy it. And it was quite good.

I'd really like to try that out.

My work carries the Shakespeare Stout, Dead Guy Ale (another favorite), and the Santa's Private Reserve (seasonal). The other good ones are the Chocolate Stout, and Kell's Irish. I don't think I have ever tried the American Ale or whatever.

Needless to say, I loooooooove my Rogue.

Edit: Holy crap! I just went to the Rogue Brew List and there are a LOT of brews I have missed out on. The east coast can be a bummer sometimes.. and this is definately one of them.

There is an imperial stout by Great Divide Brewing that is called The Yeti. It is delicious! I highly recommend this! It comes in regular and oak aged versions. I prefer the regular but either one is a good bet.

I tried this Bass that E was talking about. It's distinctive, but it's kind of thin-tasting to me, whatever that means. Overall a decent brew, but I'll take a Köstritzer or Guinness instead.

I thought about making a thread about drinking games... but this should be just the place for discussion of that matter. I was watching the new episode of DIGGnation and they talked about a drinking game called Wisest Wizard. It seems to be super fun.. here are some quotes:

Quote:
Requirements: At least two participants (you can play by yourself but then you are an alcoholic) but the more the better, as much canned beer/beverages as you think all participants will drink (trust me, you don't want to have to get more later), at least one roll of duct tape, at least one (but preferably multiple) type of hard alcohol, one shot glass for each player. Bonus points if wizardesque clothing is worn!


Quote:
After rules are decided and agreed upon (might be a good idea to write them down in case any late comers come in), all players open their first beverage. When a player has finished his or her first beverage they are now a "Level 1 Wizard". This is important since you can only call yourself a "Level X Wizard" when you have finished X number of beers. They must then "Level Up" by retrieving a full beverage, placing it on top of the now empty can, and securely taping the two together. FYI one or two good wraps of duct tape where the cans meet is usually sufficient, you don't want to over do it or you'll run out. Game play continues in this manner, leveling up after finishing each beverage until the pre-determined "boss fighting" level has been reached.


Check out the website, this is freaking epic.

Haha.

On the rare occasion that I get upset with my wife I usually just lock myself in our music room and play my guitar loudly for awhile.

This. I hated beers until I was like 28 years old (3 years ago). I didn't see the point, since there were much tastier ways to get a buzz if that's what you wanted. Now I do enjoy the occasional beer. I'm not into super hoppy beers or really deep lagers, but I love Blue Moon, Leinenkugels and the like.

If you really want to try beer, then go to a decent pub/brewery and ask to sample a few local beers. Don't start with Bud Light out a can and expect it to not taste like crap.

Did you like coffee the first time you tried it? Or fish? Or meth?
No offense, Doombot, but microbrews are better for people who really love the taste of beer. They tend to be strong and hoppy. I'd go for something more balanced, like Yuengling (which may be available there by now). Otherwise, look for a light beer or a brown ale. (Newcastle is a brown). You can go for the crazy hops and malts later.

I live in beer town USA and it's still my default, my "safe" beer, if you will. I'm not a huge beer fan, so when I'm unsure of the other choices I reach for Yuengling Ale. It's cheap and tasty. PBR is the most popular cheap beer here, but it gives me a headache.

Yuengling is a great standby beer. I usualy go for Sam Adams Boston Lager if I can't find something I like. I just stocked my fridge with some Blue Point summer ale, Saranac's summer sampler, and some other local brew that I can't remember off the top of my head. Lighthouse Ale I think.

poop is right though. Local microbrews tend to be real strong, so start with something good, but not shitty.

Actually I did like fish and coffee the first times I tried them. The only taste I can remember having to 'acquire' is for certain vegetables.

Sam Adams has a pretty wild aftertaste for a lager. Everyone should like Yuengling. My brother has started liking beer and Yuengling was his intro. He also likes those wheat beers with the oranges. mleh.

Sorry. I have not tried that, but you should try something else.

I'm unfamiliar with that myself. Also, Belgian beers can be good. Heineken is a good starter, but I prefer Stella Artois over it.

If there were a way to derive all my sustenance from Black & Tans, I would do that thing.

Maybe that is all you need. Only one way to find out.

I had some really good home-brewed beer while I was in Seattle. I don't drink a lot, but I have tried at least a dozen different beers, and this was probably the best.

I've returned to Irish ales for a while. I can't find Caffreys any more (I hear they no longer import it), so i'm sucking on Kilkenny instead. There's something mystical about waiting for your beer to settle before you drink. mmmmmmm....creamy
