All this beer talk made me decide to go out and get several beers for our barbecue this afternoon, granted I know nothing about beer so my choices were based on beers I've never tasted and bottles I liked . I picked up a Chimay Premium and Grand Reserve, a Scarecrow Golden Pale Ale, an Arrogant Bastard Ale and a Stone IPA India Pale Ale. Normally I enjoy a Guinness, so this should be some fun and different tasting.

You're in for a few surpises and a hell of a lot more flavor than you're used to from a Guinness. The Chimay beers will be altogether different than you're used to. Don't drink them too cold and try to use a goblet-shaped glass with them. The Arrogant Bastard Ale is very strong and hoppy with a deep reddish color. The Stone IPA is also hoppy with many spicy overtones. It's got an orange hue and is very refreshing on a hot day.

I've never tried Scarecrow Golden Pale Ale, but I can pretty much guarantee it'll be the tamest of the bunch.

Sean, I can't believe there is something NOT available at BevMo.




You'd think I could find it there, but no. Website doesn't offer anything, either.

I have a Chimay in the 'fridge I can try out this afternoon. Looking forward to it--new to me.

Tom: I was going to say Gouden Carolus, but apparently now they carry the Triple, in a 12 oz bottle for $3.50, nonetheless! Hey, didn't I pay $12 for that thing at that pub?

I am just now fully recovered from yesterday's Brew at the Zoo. I had some very good beers, including the best beer I've ever tasted. Lots of great IPAs, a few good pale ales, one good stout, one skunky Pale Ale w/ 9.5%abv.

So on to the best beer ever. Dogfish Head 120 minute IPA. One of the pourers brought a bottle from the brewery and he allowed my friends and me to split a 2 oz. pour. Absolute heaven. Best thing ever. Bar none. I left one of you a borderline drunk dial voice mail about it.

My friend Jason -- Tom, you met him in DC when you were out -- will be attending the NASCAR race next Saturday in Dover, Delaware. Dogfish Head isn't far from there so he'll stop by the brewery and attempt to bring back an ample amount of 120-minute for me. It will be a long week. ..




ah... well now I guess you see what I meant in the 4th post before yours

St PatGuy, if you have not been to Hi-Time Cellars in Costa Mesa, you are in for a treat. They have EVERYTHING - and better prices, to boot. WWII era Armagnacs?!

I didn't look for the Dogfish Head last time, but I saw it there a year or two ago.

GET YOUR BUTT DOWN THERE!!!!!

Picked up a sixer of Kulmacher Eisbock on my last trip to Hi-Time. Lo and behold it is not the beer my friend's dad had on tap 20 years ago. LOL

Still, a very fine brew. Deep and dark, full of fine malt flavors, nuts and caramel. The palate doesn't at all reflect the 9.2% abv. Not nearly so cloying as Samiclaus, much more intense than the commonly seen doppel bocks.

2 thumbs up!

Just wanted to report that the Edition 2004 is still to die for.
