Bad Elf
Dog Fish Chicory Stout


So many more domestic brews. Flying Dog and Heavy Seas are okay for what they are.


SN, Troegs, and New Belgium are in my dog house right now. Not liking them too much currently.


Imported, currently, I'd suggest Stella for an easy drinking beer. If you want something off the beaten path, get Chimay. It's a little steep in price but worth it. Can't go wrong with anything really, except for Smithwick's - stuff is bad. Skullcrusher Ale is awesome if you can somehow find it.

YOU sir... are.... a beer genius!!

Duvel, Chimay... some of the best Belgian beers.
As a belgian myself i can stronly recommand: 'Jupiler' - 'Hoegaarden' - 'Leffe'...

Plan ahead; take some with you.

I frequently take beers back that aren't readily available in certain parts of Kentucky when I go back to visit my dad. It's fun for him to sample things like that. It also makes visiting the family easier since I have an easily accessible supply of good beer to drink when folks begin overstaying their welcome.

Back to the subject at hand, currently in my stockpile:
  • Chimay Blue
  • Noble Trappist Ale
  • Ft. Collins Brewery Chocolate Stout
  • Stone Smoked Porter
  • Yazoo Sue
  • Magic Hat Howl


We don't do light sissy beers at my house.

Terrapin also just released their once-a-year limited edition Wake-n-Bake, one of my favorite stouts. It normally flies off the shelves at Total Wine, gone in a couple of days and you don't see it again until the next year. So I tracked it like a crazy person this year and bought a bunch of it before it was gone.

Homebrew!

You get the best beer when you roll your own.

On tap for the holidays is:
Brown ale
Raspberry wheat
Dunkelweizen

And - to stay true to my heritage - MEAD! :-D

Partially true...

I'm certain there are exceptions - but PACKAGED beers are pasteurized to give them shelf life - draft beer is not (which is why it must be kept cold from brewery to bar).

If the actual reason you don't like American beer is because it's pasteurized, then grab yourself a nice, cold, draft Pabst Blue Ribbon and bottoms up!

If not, then get yourself a nice craft-brewed beer - preferably from a local brewery - and enjoy! And help support the demand for "real beer" here in the US by not hatin' on domestics. There is PLENTY of good beer to be had - all you have to do is raise your glass.

I wish I could give you some good suggestions, I'm just not too familiar with local NM breweries. TW's are going to be in NM very, very soon, go and check it out when they open, they'll have some great local brews. Get a keg if you can, problem solved.

Awesome! That stuff will literally be gone in no time with special orders and what not, glad you got it!

Can't say I've ever had it, but I've seen the hype around it, must be great.

Last year was the first year I knew about it, I went to a bar in my area that has over 500 beers with 40 on tap. They had gotten their keg of WnB and they had hooked it up just before I got there. So I tried it and loved it.

The next day I went to Total Wine to ask about it, and they said they were already sold out for the year! So I went back to that bar on the third day to have another pint and it was gone. This year that same bar had it again and they told me it hadn't even lasted a day.

Magic Hat #9
Chimay
New Belgium Fat Tire


Those are my standard "go-to" beers. However, I'll try pretty much anything.

Right now I have switched to straight up Knob Creek Whiskey, though, until the holidays are over.

I made my first attempt at brewing something similar this past Spring. I've made oatmeal stouts in the past with good success, so I figured "what the heck?".

Put a good sized addition of oatmeal into the brewpot along with a strong dose of coffee. Too heavy on the coffee as it turned out...my "breakfast porter" didn't come out as anticipated...

On the downside - coffee flavor was WAY too prevalent
On the upside - beer energy drink anyone?

Fat tire is a good beer but a little light for me. I'm surprised you can't find it in upstate NY. Lots of people drink Labatts Blue I bet they would really like Fat Tire. Haven't had that beer in a few years.

The coffee flavor adds a nice bitterness to it with this one. It's not so much "coffee flavor" in the sense you'd imagine, but more of a "coffee flavor" in the "chewing on a roasted coffee bean" sense.

I guess I'm a peasant at heart -- I like Yuengling's Porter -- "The Pride of Pittstown, PA". And I'm NOT from there.

It's lighter than most English/Irish porters, but it's hard to beat at $22 a case.

A good second choice - which I can't get near home - is Abita "Turbo Dog".

I like the Turbodog. Have some in the fridge right now. You might like the Kona Pipeline Porter -- it's a little on the lighter side like the Turbodog. Normally I like them a little thicker, but they're great outdoor-in-the-sun type beers.

Red Brick makes a good porter too.

Out of all the beers in my short time, I've never had Shock Top. Have one in the fridge now getting nice and cold. Not expecting anything great, just some friends saying how it's good. They also think that Natural Light is an acceptable drink, so we'll see how this goes.

Franziskaner Hefe and Shiner Bock are usually in the beer fridge. Lately Sam Adams Winter Lager has been keeping them company. IMHO Shock Top is a hefe wannabe. Go grab a Franz hefe or dunkel to see how it's done and don't fruit the beer. German monks have been perfecting beer for centuries. If they don't put it in there, then it should be in there

Not sure where you are located, but Santa Fe has 2nd st and the Santa Fe brewery; ABQ hosts Marble and a couple of others, Soccoro Springs has a great craft brewery, Las Cruces as well, and Taos used to have three. Grab some growlers and make a road trip and stay away from the swill! I was actually living in NM for six months last year, developing a business plan and financing for a brewpub in conjunction with Spaceport America near TorC. For various reasons I moved back to Denver and invested in a brewery here instead. Renegade, which brews more unusual/extreme beers (high ABV, mixture of styles, odd ingredients) along the lines of Rouge and Dogfish Head.

What I have in my fridge right now is Renegade's Una Mass (a chipotle pepper mexican amber), a Delirium Tremens clone from my homebrew club, and my own rhubarb wheat cooked up on my stove a month ago. Homebrewing and Craft Brewing RULES! ! !

Shock Top is OK, if nothing else is available......

My favorite Beer in that style is Bell's Oberon
