My personal favorite is their porter, the Edmund Fitzgerald. It's so thick, you could cut it with a knife.

Unfortunately Great Lakes beer is tough to find outside of the Ohio/S Michigan/W Pennsylvania area, so the next time you're in Ohio (see Oct 2012) seek some out. It's life changing!

Great thread.

To the Blue Moon/Shock Top drinkers: Hoegaarden is a great choice, as is Leffe, Wittekerke (in a light blue can), and Duvel (Awesome stuff, 8.5% alc)

Are there any Chimay fans out there?

How about Fin du Monde from Unibroue? One of my favorites.

Lastly, if I'm cuttin the grass on a hot day, it's got to be Bud concrete.

I don't always drink beer.....but when I do, I prefer Dos Equis. For those who have not tried it, I really suggest trying it. I got hooked on it.

Not really funny for somebody who does something like beating their wife, but for a guy like me who thinks men who fight women or children are pussies, well then I think its funny.

Dos Equis is really good, and I also like Corona. I've heard good things about Landshark too. But my beer of choice is Budweiser.

Not sure if already posted but this is where it begins and ends for me. Tastes like liquid butter. Not too light, not too dark. Everyone I've put onto it now regards it as their favorite beer. Hoegaarden baby!!!

Posted Image

A somewhat distant second is Newcastle. Totally different than Hoegaarden and a little more main stream and commercial. Darker, but still very good.

there is a lot of buzz about LandShark right now. We call it the white mans Corona. You have got to try it on tap, its even more delicious.

If you haven't had Boulevard's Tank 7 yet, then head and get your beer game right. Its a saison which means you are going to get some pretty high doses of zest and clove/coriander tastes.

The beer is 8% alcohol but everything going on hides the high alcohol level well.

I've been pretty blurry eyed after a couple pints of this stuff.

New Belgium Belgo Belgian-style IPA (wow that is a lot of Belgium-related stuff going on in that title)

Pretty good stuff. Its not your typical IPA, it's more fruity and complex. If you like IPAs, it is cheap and worth a try.

I'm a HUGE Leinies fan, I pretty much like everything they make. Last spring they released the Leinies Limited for a short time and I picked up about 6 6 packs of that stuff. Another beer I like is Widmer Brothers Hefeweizen out of Portland, OR. Good stuff.............Summer Shandy is my favorite of all time though.

haha glad to hear it, Leinies Red and their bock are my favorites...anyone that likes Leinies and ends up in the Northwoods of Wisconsin should definately stop by their Lodge outside Chippewa Falls (Eau Claire area), they'll give you free beer and a tour! Fun fact, the Leinies Indian Maiden's face is based on the St. Croix and Mississippi rivers that form the border between MN and WI...

Yes, bump. I've got an updated Top 5 to list.

(in no real order, all are amazing)

Bell's Hopslam (seasonal, Michigan brewery, regional distribution)
Three Floyd's Dreadnaught (Hammond, IN near Chicago, should be able to find this across the country)
Revolution Brewery's Anti-Hero IPA (local Chicago brewery, local distribution)
Half Acre's Double Daisy Cutter (seasonal, Chicago, regional distribution)
Half Acre's Daisy Cutter (Chicago, regional distribution)

I feel very lucky living in Chicago with the beer selection here. It is hard to beat anywhere in the world, imo.

I like the dark beer's Heiny dark, Beck's dark, New Castle Brown. Not much of a selection in Oklahoma. All cold beer is 3.2%. All 5.0% and above in liquor store's only. No Coors, A-Busch or Miller product's.

Each beer variety they sell has a unique number assigned to it. Like, a coors light is a 24. You need to collect 121 of these unique numbers on your beer tour card to finish the tour. Duplicates numbers (if you drink the same beer multiple times) do not count towards your total beers drank.

Some mini tours - 6 to 10 beers introduced for a holiday or season - will have different numbers for the mini tour compared to the standard beer numbers. So you might drink a guiness and get credit on your beer card. Then come back for the St Patty's day tour and get credit for Guiness again. Because the mini tour uses a temporary alternate number for the month or so it's going on, for the specific beers on the mini tour.

I believe they can only give you credit for 4 beers per visit. Some nicer waiters will also give you credit for mini tour beers, even when you don't drink them. For instance, two years ago on the St Patty's day tour, there was a vile drink that was half Sprite and half Guiness. The kindly server let me order another Guiness to count towards that drink's number on my card.

There was a tapping party here at Jake's Cigars for a couple of Lucky Bucket brews. One was a dark Belgian Ale. I forget the name, but it was above 10 abv. It was dangerously delicious.

Its only 110 beers you have to drink in Omaha. Im on beer 24 of the second tour. Im getting that damn silver mug!

But to answer your question Lyons, they have a bunch of beers on draft and the ones that are not on draft are served in bottles. I know here in Omaha, on Thursday nights they have 25 oz. drafts for the price of 16 oz. I don't know if they do in Lincoln. But Id suggest saving all the drafts for Thursday nights if they do and drinking bottles the rest of the time.

And like Bradr said, the beers that have set numbers you may only drink once, but they have rotating beers every few weeks (usually for the mini tours, but sometimes they just get new beer in) and you may drink the rotators as much as you want. I don't like that rule because some people probably just drink 110 of the same rotating beers and that negates the purpose of the WORLD beer tour.

I don't think so . . . I think it was very small batch and only available in kegs.

Too Far North is actually the only place that I know of that serves it.

I'm currently drinking (of course I am) some Empyrean Dark Side Vanilla Porter. Definitely my favorite offering from this local brewery.

Chaco Canyon is also good, and their seasonal stuff is always worth a try.

If you're into stouts, you MUST try this:

It is like 7-8 bucks for a 650mL bottle, but if you're looking for a nice treat you will absolutely not be disappointed. Sweet, syrupy, dark with a nice thick mouthfeel (giggity). Chocolate makes up the base, but other coffee and very slight fruity notes there with some bitterness. I mean this stuff is absolutely top of the line, best you can get. So effing good. (of course if you don't like stouts and dark beers then don't waste your money)

Guinness foreign extra it's mother milk.

This too. You'll have to get it at HyVee or The Still, and its $10-$11 for a 4-pack, but it is good. Don't let "Guinness Draught" fool you...that sh#t was introduced in like 1975 and beer drinkers scoff at that watery stuff. Foreign Extra is the real Guinness, the stuff that the Irish drink. And it is fantastic.

Fallen Angel? Yep! Good stuff if you like a less bitter stout. I was happy to see that they offered it in bottles this year. As far as I know it was tap only in previous years. Get some quick . . . it usually doesn't last long.

Thanks for the recommendation! Very good stuff.

I see a lot of New Belgium products have already been listed but some of their must trys are; Fat Tire, Sunshine Wheat, and Abbey. The Abbey is an amazing Belgian style ale with unbelievable notes of banana esters derived from the yeast they use. If you like Hoegaarden, Abbey will more than satisfy you. If you have to have lots of hop character or bitterness, this one isn't for you.

Abbey is the beer that started New Belgian Brewing but Fat Tire is the one that took off for them. I like most all their brews except for their high dollar artsy fartsy iambics and stuff that tastes more like wine than beer.
