Riff, I'm not saying those people are right in the ranking bias, I just think that bias does exist. So when you look to a site like that for rankings, it helps to be aware that they're skewed.

Fosters and Harp are now made in Canada, too. I noticed at the store yesterday that Kirin Ichiban is made in Los Angeles.
This is all the result of NAFTA, I think. Good and bad to it. The foreign beers are no longer true, but I can buy Moosehead on sale at $8 a twelver. And the price of MGD, Pabst and King Cobra has fallen for you Canadians, eh? LOL

This thread was in need of a bump. Anyone have access to Magic Hat beer? (Something of an interesting site to navigate, mouse over the red button to get an idea where things are...) It's all over the place up here in Boston, and spreading from what my friends tell me in Philly. They are able to get more and more varieties of it lately. Not sure on how large the distribution has grown, but I think they're worth checking out if you want something new.

Another bump.

I am in the process of trying to finish my first bottle of Anchor Brewing's 2004 winter seasonal ale: "Our Special Ale" (Yes, I realize it's not even noon yet on Sunday. )

Yechhh! It pours like a porter/stout and even has the roasty aromas of one, but flavorwise, it has no center. By this I mean it has plenty of foretaste (aroma) and aftertaste (which is metallic and bitter), but not much in between.

I had my brother try it to make sure I wasn't crazy. He agreed that it wasn't worth buying, especially since a sixer cost me $8.39.

If you doubt that this brewery can turn out something substandard, don't take my word for it and try it yourself. But if you want to save your cash for more worthy beers, please pass this one up.

Hmmm. Other reviewers don't seem to agree with me: here and here.

That Jubelale from Deschutes in Oregon is excellent, if you feel like trying another winter fest beer. It's not overdone, very easy to like.

I see Mark has been converted to a Jubelale evangelist. Good!

Peter, I've never really loved the Anchor winter seasonal compared to some of the other west coasters (like Full Sail, Sierra Nevada, etc.). I've not yet tried this year's, and I appreciate the warning. I'll look for a single instead of a sixer

I'm going to try to convince my wife to stop by the Deschuttes brewery in Bend, OR on our drive up to Yakima for Thanksgiving. We'd just have to break left from the 5 onto the 97 in Northern California and it would take us straight through Bend, and the rest of the way to Yakima.

I'm sure the Jubelale is even better fresh from the source.

It's not exactly beer, but I guess you can call it seasonal. Only the flavor-adventurous should try it.

i saw that stuff on TV.. it is more of a novelty thing that this company does around thansgiving every year. the price is supposed to be $15 to $17 bucks for a 5-pack. seems kinda high for a beverage that you hope you will never have to actually drink..

at the grocery store last night, i bought some Peroni beer(italian). it was warm off the shelf, so i am giving it time to cool off.. i will drink a few tonight and relay my impressions. at my grocery store, it was $4.69 a sixer in bottles. not a bad price.

BTW- i was in the mood for fish last night, so i bought a nice grouper filet. it was a little more expensive than i would normally pay, but i like grouper, and our market rarely gets it, so i figured it was worth it. i had never blackened grouper before, so i gave it a shot, and it was by-god the best fish i think i have ever made. it came off the skillet with a nice crispy edge, and a bold, spicy kick.. yet was flakey and moist in the middle. delicious!!! they had some fresh talipia, i think i might swing by after work, and get me some of that.. might go well with the peroni?
