    Re: The Beer Thread!

    Any opinions on killkinney Irish cream ale? Sounds good but what do I know?

    I finally tried Smithwick's yesterday (I even pronounced it correctly!) honestly I really like it! It had a bit of a coffee taste to me which I normally wouldn't enjoy but I'm finding I like beers that aren't as pale anymore. Since last here I've also tried a variety of others.

    Liked:
    Hopfenkonig German Pilsner
    Krombacher pilsner

    Meh:
    Twisted Thistle IPA
    Boddingtons pub ale
    Leffe blonde


    I still have the list of what you guys have recommended, I was just busy studying so have only tried a few I could get at a pub that does samplers

    I'm back :3

    Leffe is one of those beers people buy because it's Belgian, but honestly it's pretty bad IMO

    Re: The Beer Thread!

    Yeah I really did not like it. I saw "blonde" and thought "oh, I should like that!" aaand I didn't. Fortunately it was just like a sampler of 5 different beers and only 1-2oz each, I think, so it wasn't like I bought an entire draft and hated it.

    This is the "beverage bible" for the place. I plan on going back (food rocks). Any suggestions? http://parklanetavern.com/Beerbible_HAMPTON.pdf (If you have ABP enabled, it may not load)

    Young's Double Chocolate Stout. It's inferior to Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout, but it's still good.

    Duvel - a way better version of what Leffe Blond tries to be

    Anything Sam Smith makes in the bottles.

    Anything in the Belgium category for the bottles, except for Leffe Blonde. Nice to see they have lambics, even if they're sweetened, they're still worth trying.

    Re: The Beer Thread!

    So recently I've been hanging around the May Day Brewery,a local brewery here in Murfreesboro, TN. One beer in particular makes me drool uncontrollably. It's an Indian Brown Ale called Evil Octopus. It's so good.

    I've been digging darker beers lately. My go to at the bar is Guinness Stout or Black as of now. Though I did find this local (I think anyway) beer here called Messiah. The company that makes it is called He-Brew and it's tagline is "It's the Beer You've Been Waiting For" It's got a nut taste to it and is also so freaking good.

    I got by Kaiten.

    Re: The Beer Thread!

    Well like usual I've been hitting the IPA's, lately two of my favorites, both happen to be from Great Lakes, and both seasonal that just passed their season. Great Lakes Chillwave double IPA, easily my most favorite beer currently (9.4%ABV, 95% score on beeradvocate, and previously called Alchemy Hour fwiw). Will be a long wait until next spring And also Great Lakes Rye of the Tiger, a rye IPA (7.5%ABV, 90% on beeradvocate). Much cheaper that Chillwave, but still great strong IPA with a punch of peppery rye make for a beer with some bite! Both are pretty potent and I'd only recommend to hard core IPA fans.

    Re: The Beer Thread!

    Smokey Mountain Brewery in Pigeon Forge, TN. I had the Cherokee Red Ale there, and it was DELICIOUS. (Also, AWESOME wings! Never had a sauce quite like theirs; ended up having them make me an entire bottle of sauce to take home xD) It's supposed to be similar recipe to traditional Irish red ales. I wish I'd bought a growler of it while I was still there, but I forgot

    I'm back :3

    Drinking a Duvel Tripel Hop 2014. Very tangy, almost a grapefruit finish, with an almost herbal taste. Light tasting and crisp for a 9.5% ABV tripel. Very good.

    Re: The Beer Thread!

    Sounds good Kaiten I might have to try to find that one.

    Tried a new to me brew from Ommegang...



    I usually don't like wheat ales, with the exception of a couple wheat IPA blends, but Ommegang Witte was actually nice, and seemed to go well ice cold on a hot summer day after some hard work outside. Perhaps its the Belgian yeast and flavors that make it nice compared to most wheat ales I've had.

    Re: The Beer Thread!

    Hmm interesting timing for this to be brought back up. Just went to an Oktoberfest party the other weekend thats put on by a few home brewers that got together and started sharing tips and equipment, etc. Guess it started several years ago, and has grown each year. Now its a huge event they even hire entertainment, setup food and desert tents, have games and activities, porta-johns lol and even commemorative glass beer mugs. And most importantly... tons and tons of beer all home brewed!


    The Tap Wall. Each has a tag with the name of the brew and who made it.


    Backside of the tap wall. About 200 gallons of beer!


    The alphorn players were a nice touch!

    I had a long drive home solo so didn't go too crazy. Was there for several hours, tried maybe about a dozen or so brews, just filled up the glass 1/4-1/3 each time, enough to get a good sample, and ate a ton of food and talked with friends. Two of the brewers I knew from work which is how I was invited. One of them was my ol shift supervisor when I joined the company.
