Beer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - Page 2

post #16 of 28

Re: Beer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Some of my favorite's that can be bought in the store are Bass Ale, Whitbread Ale, and Killian's Red.

We've got a lot of micro breweries locally that have some really tasty beer too...but, I don't remember any of the names. ***hiccup***

Re: Beer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'll have to try out some of these suggestions from you all. I do remember liking Blue
Moon when I head down south. With a slice of orange. Gives it a refreshing
taste.

Ant of you guys try some Sleeman or Upper Canada brews from up here? They both started off as micro breweries but eventually blew up and got huge.

I drank plenty of perroni in Italy. Don't rate it too high though. But when it's handy, it's plenty good!

There are way too many micro beers available up here to keep track of.

Two thumbs up on this one.
Unfortunately no chance of getting it here in the land of the hobbits, so there are a couple of good local alternatives.
Epic IPA and Tuatara IPA
Also Epic Mayhem.

Moretti is a waaaaaaaaaaay better Italian beer.

If you're in Ohio, Sam Adams hardly qualifies as "local" - company is located in Boston.

Add several dashes of Angostura bitters or a small shot of Campari and serve cold.

Re: Beer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Radler or "Cyclist" cocktail is half lager beer and half lemon soda. I guess the idea is you can drink it for a bit of pep but it's too diluted to seriously impair your cycling. There's also the Shandy which is made with half ginger ale.

Re: Beer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Has anyone else seen "Beer Wars"? Interesting film about the brewery business and how the big three (Anheuser-Busch, Coors and Bud) control the market and how upstart micro breweries try to get a foot hold.

I am a fan of craft beers and hate the dishwater that big three offer and I make every effort to avoid supporting those mega corps.

If you love beer and the vast varieties available today then please support the smaller brewers.

Stuff from the Big 3 tastes nearly as good as warm, three day old urine from a nursing home patient with a urinary tract infection, and that's a scientific fact.

Problem is A-B and Coors are going undercover and trying to offer "off-brand" stuff that LOOKS like craft brews. Or in A-B's case, buying up craft brewers and appropriating their product.

Not that size is an impediment to flavor - I do believe Newcastle, Guinness, and Sam Adams all qualify as "sizable" operations and they're all pretty f'in good. Not "the best" but pretty good.

I am told they use pilsner or lager beer. I basically mentioned it because it was cycling-related. I only tried it once, with Pilsner Urquell and Sprite, and concluded that they must have a very different type of lemon soda in Germany. Way too sweet. Maybe half beer, one quarter Sprite, one quarter seltzer, and a dash of lemon juice would work. Or maybe just leave out the Sprite.

Edit: Well, I looked online and apparently, that's how people have it, half 7-Up and half beer. Maybe 7-Up is drier than Sprite.
