yeah for me.... finally finished the soda pop beer. Next up... Raff's choice and her tastes are SO much better than mine.

ohhh... that woman knows me too well. Better than myself I suppose...




nice to see what it looks like in a glass... no glasses here.. Micky takes his beer like his Jack. .straight from the bottle.

*sound of top popping*....

ummmm... oh that is good...  definitely having one with breakfast in place of the morning coffee LOL

I saw those when at Total Wine when gearing up/spurging for Progday mass consumption of fatally lethal brews... since my toes were in the fetal position without choosing that... it was probably wise I passed.

I'll pick that up next time (just went today in fact) we go to Total Wine. My favorite beers are the ones best served not cold. In fact this damn fru fru soda pop ale I've been nursing for 2 hours tastes slightly better now at room temperature.

as far as beer reviews..... like music. I enjoy being surprised as much as I enjoy being disappointed. Tastes are so damn individual to ever really have someone else guide what I may or may not like. You only find out by trying it out yourself!

Though I'd agree.. I find music reviews more entertainment than informational.   I bet beer reviews would be in the same boat.

Anybody read "Beer Advocate" reviews?  The only thing as fun as reading music reviews is beer reviews.  People can get pretty entertaining in their description of beers.

^Don't believe I ever have? 
Unfortunately money is tight now so I'm drinking mostly Summit.  One of the decent cheaper beers.

ever tried a a Belgian framboise lambic Jim?  I've met very few that have and didn't like.

That Founders is the closest American beer I've found to those.  It is good... really good. In fact.. just opened my 2nd. Beer

Founders is a really solid all around brewer.  However I've never like a "fruity/berry" beer yet so I'm a bit hesitant on that one.

I'm going to try that Founder's raspberry...I usually like their beers.
Abita has made good beer for a while now....I need to try one again.

Anyone else prefer low carbonation?  Or do you like lots of carbonation?


Abita is a classic and great brewer.. even if they.. like many of the great regional brewers we used to have .. have been swallowed up by the mega-congramerates.

Abita's Lousiana Spiced Ale ranks in my top 5 American beers... it is a trip to New Orleans in a bottle.  It is a party in your mouth.. yet without feeling too kinky...
