I run a risk mentioning this in here...I felt like getting some Miller High Life tonight. Used to run through this stuff, haven't had it in years. Same ole same ole. It ain't bad man, I'm cool with lagers man. Just another style of beer. Not heavy on flavor, but BEER. And beer my friends, is glorious.

 

Nothing wrong with that.   Back in the day, after working in the heat, we'd pick up an 8-pack of Miller pony's, and pound 'em down in one, to two, gulps.   I used to love those 2 pony-beer-buzzes!

Yeah, nothing wrong with that. Too many beer snobs in this country anyway. Seems like everyone that tries one or two brands with a wacky flavor is all of the sudden a beer expert. Drink what you like.

Just like music. What I like to listen to will be different then others. I hate when they look down on me for my tastes, because I don't look down on theirs. I remember when being a Phish fan was like being a part of the Free Masons or illuminati. In the music thread I lurk mostly to see who tries to come up with this off the wall band nobody has heard of just to be unique.

Did you see the "Seek a Brew" site I posted a couple of posts up?  I'd be curious to get your take on how accurate it is:

 

http://www.seekabrew...stro/index.html

 

Their list of breweries is amazingly long (they list Atlas, for example).  But my random browse of three or so showed an inaccuracy (Great Lakes Brews not in Virginia??!?)

Yes indeed.  Granted - I LOVE craft beer.  But, for me, there is a time and place.  For example, if I'm drinking at tailgate, or want a beer after/while doing yardwork - I'll grab some simpler stuff like Miller, Coors or whatever.  It's all good.  No judgement here at all!

I am a craft beer drinker but I can always go for a Mickey's 40oz in the right situation. Nothing wrong with it. The big beer brands have their place & time, even in a craft beer drinker's life.

I guess I wasn't clear. The site showed Great Lakes Brewery products are not distributed in Virginia. In fact, I just picked up a six pack of their Conway's Irish Ale. At a Giant. In Virginia.

Highly recommended BTW...

I'm pretty sure Norm's in Vienna has some Great Lakes stuff.  My dad bought some for me the last time my family got together and I think that's where he got it.

Picked up a sixer of Flying Dog Doppelbock, and a can of Shock Top Honeycrisp Apple Wheat. Haven't had FD's Doppelbock before, but love Doppelbocks in general. 8.3% alc, $10.79 a sixer.

Believe me Great lakes brews some awesome beers..Chill Wave should be next.

 

I haven't tried Chill Wave Double IPA, but I haven't had a bad brew from them yet. I've had Elliot Ness Amber Lager, Dortmunder Gold Lager,  Edmund Fitzgerald Porter, Burning River Pale Ale, Conway's Irish Ale, and their Oktoberfest, and they've all been quite good.

 

(All bought in six pack bottles in Virginia, BTW.)

Stone's Smoked Porter w/Vanilla Bean has started showing up in stores again, and is pretty cheap by craft beer standards. I highly recommend picking it up.

Pliny the Elder is supposed to be the best brew in the universe. I've never had the pleasure.

It's definitely the best IPA I've had. Maybe the best beer.

finally got a chance to try Deschutes Obsidian stout, a bit disappointed after the high ratings but a nice enough brew.(the creamy finish didn't work for me)

 

Karbach's BB Hellfighter made the trip worthwhile though , probably now my second favorite beer (have to try again)

Yeah...I can see that, but for some schmo,( like me), who isn't in the industry, the site was an invaluable resource, when I re-habbed an old kegerator...

Its amazing. Best IPA I've ever had and in the running for best beer.

You can find it here in San Diego you just have to ask for it as people don't put it out on their shelves (they keep it in the back).

 

Pliny the Younger is supposedly even better than Pliny the Elder.

I miss beer.

 

All my coworkers were talking about Pliny the Younger (which sounds like a rapper name to me) being on tap nearby. When I looked it up, it sounded awesome.

Some dude told me they weren't brewing it this year. Maybe that's a lie...

 

Anyways, I heard when its on tap people line up out the door to get a glass

Trusty ole Talbott Beer & Wine on 355 (Rockville Pike section), across from the Taco Bell. Props to this store for saving me several times when I've wanted a brewskie late at night. Close at 1 AM every day of the year. Only beer store around here that didn't close early due to snow today. Its selection isn't great, it's little, but they stock random craft beers for sure. They sell a $25 four pack of a Deschutas beer. Random.

So I was craving some Shock Top Honeycrisp Apple Wheat, but since they don't have it, I got the Stella Artois Cidre, and a can of Strongbow Cider. Been ages since I've had a cider, so I figure since I like the Shock Top so much, why not try it!? Will be back with reviews.
