It's sad when you are looking at a AV site and the longest thread is about beer. But then again, it is beer.

Has anyone tried Stone Ale. They make some great stuff. I live in San Diego and seem to be surrounded by Ale houses. Green Flash (so-so right now but will grow) Pizza Port (international gold) Carl Strause (Nice after work beer) and Stone (all around great. With 3 out of the 4 within a 10min drive it is like hitting a gold mine in San Diego. With all of these great houses around me I think that I have to tell you all the New Castle Brown is the winner hands down. If you have not tried it do yourself a favor. It is a "Brown" but drinks like a very rich lite.

Really there would be much longer threads if all the posts about their respective topics were confined to one place. What happens though is that topics are raised and forgotten and re-raised, over and over again in various threads. The beer thread just helps us to refrain from thread jacking with beer comments.

Found a beer that I liked. It's Flying Dog Horn Dog. It's a barleywine style, and I really enjoyed the complex flavor. And it didn't have that nasty aftertaste that always makes me want to gag when I drink beer. Anyone else tried this one?

You're a lucky b*st*rd to be living in San Diego.
I usually stop by the San Marcos Brewery on my way to Del Mar every summer, but I've been wanting to visit that PizzaPort place. And I was unaware that Stone operated a brewpub. Whereabouts are both of those places located, if you don't mind?

I haven't tried that Flying Dog, but I do love a good barleywine. I can get some more for you to try.

Cool.
This one's got quite a bit of a kick.

Pizza Port is in Solana Beach, about 1 mile from the Del Mar Race Track. If you know Del Mar well then exit Lomas Santa Fe (off the I5). Head west on Lomas Santa Fe untill you hit the Pacific Coast Highway 1, turn right and the Pizza Port is on the left right as you turn onto Pacific Coast Highway. Easy to find but if you get a little lost then ask, everyone knows where the place is. Good beer.

www.pizzaport.com

Stone Brewing is located in San Marcos, about 20 min NE of Del Mar. They make Arogant Bastard Ale along with a few others. Fridays are great days to hit that place up.

Green Flash brewing is located in Vista, about 20 min NE of Del Mar. They have daily taistings as well and the Brew Master is one of those guys that will keep the beer running free without a limit on the taistings. He will also tell you everything there is to know about beer making.

Awesome, thank you very much.

I really like the Stone Pale Ale - perfectly balanced IMO.

Not a big pale fan from anyone. Have you tried New Castle Brown Ale?

I've probably tried about 2,000 of them.
My wife likes them quite a bit. I prefer something with a bit more alcohol if I'm spending my own money. I tried to make a Newcastle-style Brown Ale at home but I just couldn't stand to make a beer that weak.
BJ's Red comes in at around 7-9% ABV and has the same kind of flavor - just concentrated. Another you might like is the Gordon Biersch Marzen - which can be found in bottles at the supers.
