Becks and Heineken both taste horrible....lol

Absolutely agree. Both have a nasty skunky taste. I was just finishing out the quote.

How about anything from the smokestack series from Boulevard? Just had their Collaboration #2 white IPA. Really good summer IPA, not overly hoppy at all. My buddy just found 2 cases of Bourbon Barrel Quad in Iowa and is bringin some of that home. That stuff is amazing, especially after it has aged for a few months/year.

It's hard to find green bottles fresh, but when you do the taste difference is night and day. Just like Corona and Landshark. That's why I go for Rolling Rock, it's easier to find fresh.

Absolutely! Love that stuff. I get quite excited when I see it on tap at Jakes or Bricktop (before they closed.)

Sours are definitely a love it or hate it style. There doesn't seem to be much middle ground.

Goose Island's Bourbon County Stout. A stout aged in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels for a few months. Great flavor (if you like bourbon)but don't drink too many. It's 13+% ABV. I believe.

Here's the issue with green bottles and clear bottles. They allow light to penetrate the beer and give no protection to the beer. The brewing company tells these liquor stores, grocery stores, etc., how to store their beer, but they refuse to do it because it's a pain in the arse. As a home brewer I can tell you, light equals bad flavors for your beer. After making a few batches of beer you'd be surprised how difficult it can be as far as sanitation is concerned and how careful you have to be with the beer. You have to sanitize everything, syphon the beer slowly without introducing oxygen to the beer, etc. etc. Makes you appreciate how much work goes into a good beer when you pick it up at the store.

Well, I started my beer tour on Friday. All the beers I drank were pretty good. I started out with Blue Moon. Obviously, I said that was one of my favorites.

Then I had:

Never had it before. Usually do not like dark beers, but I actually really like it. Would recommend it.

Then:

Had it before, but not for awhile. Still good.

And lastly:

I know I live in Nebraska and this is a Nebraska based brewing co., but this was the first time I've had it. Very good.

Next four beers of the tour. If people get annoyed by me posting these, please tell me. I'm just trying to let everyone know maybe some beers they have never tried that are good so they can try them.

Posted Image

Very good.

Posted Image

I'm sure most have had this. A different taste, but still okay.

Posted Image

Never had it before. Never heard of it. It's brewed in Washington state and it is damn good.

Posted Image

Had it once before and it is still pretty tasty. Recommend all the beers I had tonight for people to try if they have not yet.

Was in Milwaukee this weekend and attended the 2nd annual Brewfest, it was amazing. If ever in Wisconsin check out some of the local brews up there, they know their beer. You wont be disappointed.

Exactly. That's why Heinekens, Rolling Rocks, and Corona like beers get a bad wrap. I wish more brands did those tall boxes like Sam Adams does.

Always on tap at Huber Haus (basement of the Crescent Moon.) You can get it in 1 liter mugs or 2 liter boots. Warsteiner Dunkel is definitely in my top ten.

Yep. I'm not sure (beyond tradition) why those bottlers insist on using the green and clear bottles. It seems like that would be an easier change than getting all distributors/retailers to have separate storage and display methods.

I've dabbled with the homebrewing as well. A few hits and a lot more misses. I think I might have enough spare time now to make a proper go of it.

Bought a 6 pack of this last week after trying it at the free monthly Empyrean Beer Tour.
Posted Image
It's not at all like the regular woodchucks. This has a slightly burnt brown sugar taste with just a hint of cider. Excellent stuff but a bit pricey. Apparently it's a one time only thing so if you'd like to try it you'd best buy some soon.

This is what I always have on tap. Always. Since my junior year of college.

By the way . . . if you don't have a kegerator you should probably get one. Best couple hundred bucks I have ever spent.

FWIW, I hate Sam Adams, I think it tastes skunky. I just bought some Coastal Wheat the other day, tasted horrible! I've had it before and thought it was decent.

Honey Weiss, not Summer Shandy, which is also very good. Pretty sweet taste, but good.

Meh. Most of you have probably had it before.

Rasberry beer. Very good. Reminds me of Upstream Rasberry beer for all you Omaha natives. Its called Abita Purple Haze.

Blueberry flavored beer. Reminded me of an IPA type beer. Pretty good, but kinda strong and hoppy. Called Boulder Kinda Blue.

In Mannheim Germany, we traded a 5th of Jack about a fifth of the way full for a case of Warsteiner at concert

Australian beer. Gave it to us in a 25 oz. can. Monster can, average beer.

English Beer. Pretty strong taste. Not bad, but not something I would drink again.

Could quite possibly be my new favorite beer. Blue Moon type beer. This is why I'm doing this beer tour, to find beers like this. Thank you beer tour.

You're crazy man. I like you, but you're crazy.


Made me :LOLtartar at that one GSG. Good ole Will Ferrell.

I agree with every beer aspeedlin posted. I drink them all and love them. Bud Light is my fav. domestic. 312 I had in Chicago and was really good. Blue Moon is my fav. beer to drink at a restaurant. I just had Summer Shandy a few weeks ago and might have become my favorite beer.

I decided last night while I was out to dinner at Old Chicago that Im going to do their World Beer Tour, so I'll post any good beers I have while doing that for everyone. It might take me more than a year to complete, however, so bear with me.


did the ole world beer tour in college. some very good beer and some very bad beer! but i had fun, and it only took 2 months!!

@ Po Belini, if you like shocktop or blue moon, I suggest Hoegaarden...its tasty.


Where can I find this beer? Do they sell it in Nebraska?

Im not sure if the sell it in Nebraska...they sure as hell sell it in Connecticut!

We recently had a new liquor store open up in town, and they have the "make your own six pack" deal, so I imagine I'll be bumping this thread fairly regularly ;)

Pretty light, nice smooth creamy taste. Nothing to write home about, but I could drink a few.

Posted Image

I kinda freaked out when I opened and poured this one. The smell was beyond fruity. The color was sooooo freaking dark purple. But it wasn't really that sweet. Actually turned out to be something I wouldn't mind drinking on a hot summer afternoon. Plus its got 8% ABV!

Posted Image

I nearly creamed my pants when I saw this in the cooler. It's kinda pricey (I paid $11 for a 4 pack). Totally worth it though. I used to drink it a lot when I lived in Phoenix because we actually had stores that sold good stuff. I'd give it a go, and if you absolutely hate it, send me the bill and any remaining bottles!!

I've got a few more to try tomorrow. Might have to make another beer run too!! :lol:

Honestly, I can't remember what these beers tasted like last night. I was drunk and everything tasted the same. But here goes nothing...

Posted Image

Called Cornstalker. Brewed in Kearney, Nebraska. I know it was a dark beer. From what I can remember, it taste kinda like coffee.

Posted Image

Called Golden Frau. Brewed in Kearney, Nebraska. That's all I remember.

And finally...

Posted Image

Shiner Blonde. Brewed in Texas. Probably the best tasting beer of the night. Don't remember the taste enough to make a comparison.

They do. Check HyVee (sometimes), N Street (usually) and the Still (always).

Don't know why I haven't looked at this thread yet, but anyways I went to Grandmothers the other night with the girlfriend to have some nachos and a beer. Was feeling like something different so I asked what they had on tap and the waiter mentioned Schilling Bridge which I had never heard of before, apparently it's brewed in Pawnee City. I'm guessing the kind that I had was Lemon Lime Lager. It was perfect! This stuff is what any lime flavored beer should be like, doesn't have that pine-sol taste like bud light lime. Pretty sweet with excellent flavor and a smooth finish no bitterness whatsoever. It was dark in there but it looked almost like a blond wheat beer with the slight cloudiness too it. I think the best part was when I burped afterward and it tasted like lemon/lime/orange (that citrus taste they have in common).

I would highly recommend this beer if you're looking for a change up for the end of summer and a really refreshing beer. Could of drank 6 or 8 glasses without batting an eye but I had to drive. GF even loved it and she's pretty picky about beer, usually doesn't like my Guinness or wheat beers.

So this is off-topic, but how about we get rid of Herbie and Lil Red and use this guy as our mascot? ;)

More good options:

Moose Drool Brown Ale. Big Sky Brewing. (Sort of like Third Stone Brown. Mellow brown ale with sort of a graham cracker taste.)
Posted Image

Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout. North Coast Brewing (Fairly intense. Not for beginners.) Note that EVERY beer I have ever had from North Coast has been outstanding.
Posted Image

Claymore Scotch Ale. Great Divide Brewery. (Easily in my top ten. Thick consistency . . . but more sweet than bitter.)
Posted Image





Alright . . . here is the most intense beer I have ever had. In fact, it's a bit too much for me but my fiance loves it. Huge bourbon flavors . . . one bottle has more flavor than a couple cases of your average beer.

Bourbon County Stout. Goose Island. Crazy stuff. If you are someone who thinks Guinness is a little on the wild side, don't go near this one.

I don't have a pretty picture of it, but my favorite beer is Lazlo's (Empyrean Ale's) Chaco Canyon Honey Gold.

This. I'm a fan of the Third Stone Brown also.




My cheap beer of choice has always been Busch Light.
