What Beer Are You Drinking Today?

#1 Post by Scott » 22 Feb 2014 17:40

This should be a fun thread. At the very least at this website, I know Mark, Mike, and me are all craft beer aficionado's. We're always trying something different. So, here's how this thread works. Let us know what you're drinking and post a picture of it poured and ready to go with the empty (or less volume'd) vessel next to it. It doesn't even have to be beer....if it's whisky, wine, or gin....you're in!

I'll start....and this isn't a craft beer per se, but instead is a limited edition from an Irish "giant". As good as their draft, maybe even slightly better, with a nice roasted caramel type finish. Cheers!

This is a Pic I used recently for a simliar thread on Facebook with my old college buddies. Not poured as requested by Scott, but I did polish off two of these earlier tonight! My current favorite (love hoppy IPA's).

No need to pour them if you don't want to....I just think that every good beer needs to wind up in a vessel of some sorts...that looks like an interesting one. I'm not huge on IPA's, anything above 50 IBU or so doesn't work for me. I'm more of a fan of the Pale Ale style, but every once in a while. Had some Cape Cod IPA's last weekend while out for Valentines Day dinner with the wife at The Oyster Company....they go great with oysters on the half shell.

A great choice! Had many a bottle of that one out in the Bay Area while visiting family. Goes great with barbequed oysters on the half shell!

Goose Island "312 Urban Wheat Ale"

#20 Post by Scott » 28 Feb 2014 18:00

Tonight's extra curricular sampling comes from a Chicago based brewery that was unfortunately bought out by Anheuser Busch and then mercifully left to continue to brew beer without any influence from their new parent. Note the Baldwinsville NY on the label which is always a clear indicator. Goose Island has continued to be a quality beer though, and a keg of their "Honkers Ale" recently resided in my kegerator.

This is a good but overall uneventful wheat ale with the usual light body, unfiltered appearance, and banana/clove type finish. This one is being quaffed at room temperature and is doing quite well. Not one I'd go out of my way to order, but not bad at all to try.

High marks for Goose Island also. Have had a few versions of their beers, and not a bad one yet.

Always a good choice. One of those no nonsense classic craft beers, and local too!

Nice Choice. Last year when out in Chicago had the chance to enjoy them.
The local 99 also has begun with the Goose Island

I am not sure why this thread didn't show up when I saw the new threads. Anywhos. You like really hoppy beers? I have four, top notch, super hoppy ales for you to try. Warning, for the rest, these are NOT beginner beers, they're for the refined taste of good balanced floral in your face hoppy beers.
* Stone - Double Arrogant Bastard Ale (Double Bastard)
* Oskar Blues - Gubna
* Weyerbacher - Double Simcoe IPA
* Sierra Nevada - Bigfoot Barleywine Ale.

All A - A+ Beers.

Not just another beer from Mayflower Brewing, but an A+ effort from Mayflower Brewing. If you truly enjoy a nice Porter, you MUST try this!
