2010-05-05 Open Beer Thread



So from what I've heard, the local nine isn't playing very good baseball right now. Apparently one of the players had a bit of a blowup in the game last night, the local legend is playing actively preventing some of this fans from touching themselves and the team has now lost four straight games, two of them very tight losses that the team should have won.

On that note, here is a thread about adult (alcoholic) beverages such as beer, wine, whiskey and other liquors to A) discuss and B) learn new things to help you drown your sorrows in the wake of the Mariners being bad again and Griffey really sucking.

Current beers of the moment - New Belgium La Folie, Saint Somewhere Saison Athene

Lately I've been really into saisons and lighter spring beers, as well as sours and the usual porters. Also had a few IPAs I've really liked recently, even though I'm not a huge IPA person. I particularly liked Dogfish Head Burton Baton as an IPA. As for saisons, I've loved Saison Athene, really like Victory's Saison and was impressed with Dupont Avec Les Bon Voeux. Also particularly liked New Belgium's Biere de Mars and Lost Abbey's Carnevale.

On my list of beers to try is New Belgium's Eric's Ale, Bruery's Barrel-Aged Autumn Maple, Lost Abbey's Framboise de Amarosa, and Jolly Pumpkin's Noel de Calabaza.

What have had recently? Liked/disliked? New brewers discovered that we should know about? Funny homebrewing experiences? Awful times at breweries where you were the second to last person to not get bottles after waking up at seven in the morning on your Saturday and then watching said bottles immediately go on eBay for $175/bottle?

Also, I'll be going to Chicago in a few weeks, and making two separate brewery themed road trips up the California coast. Recommend beers I need to try and ones I should bring back with me as well (bottle space is no object on either trip, and neither is cost, really)
