You got to have the espresso oak aged yeti. Way, way better!

 

Had that one when it was released at their tap room. It's one of a small number of beers I will not bring home (cuz it will be gone too fast) ;)

Do you guys like Bood Light?

Don't ruin this thread

 

 

I'll try not to have the same effect you've had on the "uh-oh, Former Coach Kaz" thread.

Thank you. This one is important. The other, not do much

Ommegang Brewery has just released two new "Game of Thrones" beers. I've never been disappointed by any of their beers, and these two are no exceptions. On Sunday I went to an unveiling at a local taphouse. Try 'em if you can find 'em. They ain't cheap.

 

http://www.ommegang.com/got/three_eyed_raven.php Three Eyed Raven is a dark saison. I've also seen it described as a farmhouse ale but I'm not familiar enough with that term to know how well it fits. Very rich, almost seemed like a porter when I first tried it and I thought it was going to be too much, but it never overwhelmed me. It was like a heavy, dark slightly Belgian, very very good.

 

http://www.ommegang.com/got/fire_and_blood.php Fire and Blood is a red ale. I should have had this first, I think I would've appreciated it more. After Three Eyed Raven it seemed weak and with less character, but as I had more I came to enjoy it more and more.

 

They also had bombers of http://www.ommegang.com/got/valar_morghulis.php Valar Morghulis, a Belgian dubbel. This is my favorite, but the sweet spiciness may be too much for some. I enjoyed it all the way through.

 

My son and I each had a sampler flight of all 3, then split a bomber of Valar Morghulis, and I finished with a 10oz goblet of Three Eyed Raven, while he switched to a salted caramel of another brand, I think from Parallel 49. I'm not a big caramel fan but he loved it, and I liked the sip I had.

Anyone heard of this website called Tavour ?

 

It's basically a beer ordering site so you can get beers that maybe aren't available in your area.

 

The reviews seem to be decent:

Tried this a while back at Old Chicago. It's really good, but I could probably only drink 1 or 2 at a time. It's apparently selling like crazy and they're struggling to keep up with the demand.

Not your father's is great. I've only had on tap and the ABV jumps to 10.5% rather than the 5.9% bottled.

I was looking at their website and they have the 10%, and a 19.5% in bombers as well :waste :waste :waste

Fill a pint glass with 1/2 Smithwicks and 1/2 Harp

 

Works with bottled, but I highly suggest it on tap.

I can highly recommend Oskar Blues Death By Coconut. It is a chocolaty coconutty Irish porter. Very dark, tastes like a stout but has the lighter mouth feel of a porter. Really good, the best really.

Had a Shock Top lemon shandy yesterday. Way too sweet for me.

 

Not Your Father's Root Beer just tastes like a root beer to me. Can hardly tell there's anything in there, aside from a little burn going down.

 

Had dos cervezas at dinner tonight. Can confirm:

 

Coors Light >> Bud Light

Having one of these at my desk at work right now. Don't judge, it's Friday afternoon and in the 90's outside.

Pretty good stuff. Been real happy with all of the Upslope brews I've tried.

Maybe restore 18th Amendment? Beer is more dangerous than MJ users both physically and mentally. My experience in younger age ...... I suffered beer and MJ addictions. Amazing ..... still legal on TV beer commercials, magazines, billboards and newspapers ads plus big sponsors. My guess, powerful lobbyist (i.e. Coors, Budweisers, Millers) by under the table lawmakers. Perfect world ..... banned beer ads just like tobacco. Or else stiff tax, like $10 per six pack. BTW, I remember 40 years ago or so, smokers' was no link causing lung/artery disease. Lighting up!

Very good IPA you guise.

Buddy of mine used to work at Upslope and I got a lot of free beer from their damaged cans. Upslope has the best pumpkin ale I've had.

 

I'm generally a fan of everything from Left Hand brewery. The Milk Stout Nitro is amazing that they can get a nitro in a bottle. It's widely distributed so almost everyone should be able to find it. They have other nitro bottles as well: sawtooth ale, coffee stout, coffee porter, scottish ale, and probably more, but the milk stout is my favorite.

Went to Left Hand last Friday night. The Bittersweet nitro was really good as well as "A Blessing and A Curse" IPA (my gf even liked it). Milk Stout is always good though.

 

My personal favorite was the double-Sawtooth ale they had for a while called Chainsaw

Yeah, I really like their Nitro Milk Stout. I guess I need to try some others. I did have a Left Hand IPA a few years ago but I didn't care for it. I pretty much stick to IPA'S and wheat beers in the hot months and go for the stouts and porters in the cooler months. And then of course pale ales; Fat Tire, 90 Shilling, Boston Lager types year round.

Milk Stout...can someone give me a breakdown on that beer? I see it a lot but have not tried it.

I'm not sure how it got "milk" in the name. Pretty sure there is no milk in it. But it does sort of have the silky mouth feel of drinking milk. It's pretty much just a good, smooth stout. You should try it.

I tried this beer for the first time a few weeks ago. Now, it's sort of my go-to when we head out on the boat with the in-laws. It's fairly cheap, tastes pretty good and has a nice summer feel.

IT'S A "MILK" STOUT BECAUSE IT HAS LACTOSE IN IT WHICH HELPS GIVE IT A SWEETNESS AND A SMOOTH MOUTHFEEL

 

GET THE NITRO THOUGH. ALSO TRY THE BITTERSWEET NITRO IF IT'S ON TAP SOMEWHERE. IT'S LIKE A NITRO COLD BREW COFFEE

Uses sugar (from milk which gives the name) to take some of the sharpness out of a traditional stout. The Nitro Milk Stout is smooth and the nitro gives it a creamy feel. A bottled nitro is never going to be as good as a nitro tap, but it's pretty close.

When I was in Michigan, my GF's stepdad introduced me to this. Had a couple and found it pretty damn good. It's a Scotch ale.

Then I was out last night and I got my first taste of jalapeño ale. Tasty stuff!
