Good Beers

155 posts in this topic

Does any one know of a good nut brown ales or honey pilsners available in most stores?

I have been drinking a nut brown ale from the South Shore Brewery that is excellent but it is tough to get (Duluth is the cloesest place I can find it and that is 1.5 hours away).

An excellent honey pilsner is Honey Moon (brewed by Blue Moon) but that is only available seasonally(summer). Honey Wiess is good too but I like to try something different.

Anbody have any other "good" beer suggestions?

Anybody brew their own?

I don't know if this falls within the category you're looking for but I really like Fat Tire Amber Ale.

I haven't had too many beers that are bad IMO. Moose Drool and Samuel Smith are good brown ales. Some good smaller midwest breweries I subscribe to are:

Bell's

New Glarus

Viking Brewing Company

Rush River

Schell's

Surly makes beers that defy classification, but I suppose Bender fits into the Aerican Brown Ale class.

They make the best beers in the world. I love being a part time beer snob (although I have Genuine draft on tap in my basement, the cooler behind it always has craft type beers in it) and Surly is the runaway best beer brewer in America. And they're in our back yard!

Go! Go buy some today!

Oh wait. You can't. It's Sunday.

My favorite Nut Brown Ale would be Samuel Smiths Nut Brown Ale. It's an english beer that you can get in a pint or a 4 pack. It's a little more expensive, but good. They also have a good oatmeal stout.

Oh, and fat tire is pretty good stuff too! But New Belgium brewery offers a lot more than just fat tire.

I am not much of a dark beer guy, but agree that Newcastle is good stuff. One of my favorite beers period is Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat with a lemon quarter squeezed into it.

If you ever go to Germany and order a wheat beer(Weizen) the odds are pretty good you will get it served with a slice of lemon and the brewery that made the beer will have been around at least 800 to a 1000 years so they might know something on how a beer should taste. When you pour that beer into your glass the head will rise up to around 2-3 inches above the rim of the glass and will all settle back in without spilling a drop. Now that's a beer and YES I do miss the great flavors of all the beers they make. If your town had at least a 100 thousand people you would have at least 3 local brewery's and if you were farther away then 30 miles you would not find your local beer.

Right on, I've never been disappointed with any Goose Island beer. I really like their Oatmeal Stout too.

I love this time of year, all the various brands have their Oktoberfest brews available.

Although I whole-heartedly subscribe to "Man Laws", lemon is technically allowed in a Weiss beer; as wussified as that may appear.

Corona is an abomination of that principal. As a matter of fact, Corona is an abomination. However, Mexicans will serve just about anything they eat or drink "con limon", or "with lime". Squeeze a lime on a sliced tomato one time. You'll never go back.

Surly is one of the most wonderful beers out there right now! I just went to the autumn brew review in minneapolis this weekend, and surly was the busiest tent in the place. I discovered bender a few years ago, and buy it every once in a while. I brew my own, and am always trying new things, but surly is wonderful. I also love newcastle, as my avatar can atest to. I do keep Grain Belt on tap, but I am really considering Surly bender for my next keg, even though it is 3 times the price of Grain Belt.

Sleeman quit exporting to America! Darn Canucks! Incredible beer... just no longer available... at least according to my liquor store.

Good Luck!

If you ever go to Australia, ask for a VB or Victoria Bitter. Ask for a Fosters and they will laugh you out of the place.

Another great aussie beer is Coopers Sparkling Ale. I've only been able to find it at Surdyks.

Anyone ever tried Lindemans lambics? Their belgian beers. It's almost like a champagne. But they come in cherry, raspberry and blackberry. Corked and ready to go. They're a good sipper, but at $9 bones a bottle, a little on the expensive side!

Miller Lite just put out a pint aluminum bottle, different than the one Bud has had out for awhile. The Miller version is the same size around as a can of beer, only slightly taller than a 12 oz can, and it has the Mickeys Big Mouth style cap and top on it. Keeps the beer ice cold
