Okay, bigjohn, I'll bite.

Yesterday, purely on impulse, I picked up a sixer of Old Chub Scotish ale from the pioneer of canned craft beer, Oskar Blues in Lyons, Colorado.

It was strong, malty, balanced and tasted very fresh. It was, by a wide margin, the best tasting canned beer I've ever had (displacing Boddington's-with-a-widget). I totally buy-in to the concepts (and descriptions) on their website, and I will be giving them more of my money. I might even stop on the way home and pick up some of their Dale's Pale Ale.

Enthusiastically recommended. But pour it in a glass if you're drinking it at home, willya?

or drink, as the case may be!!

thanks for the review. i dont believe i have ever heard of that beer, but i will definitely be on the lookout for it. i agree, it is hard to find good beer in cans, so i am curious to see just how good this brew is.

I had a sixer of E.J. Phair Lager over the weekend (actually a fiver - got one left). Strong lager, noticeable alcohol content. Lots of malt body. Huge billowy head - almost over carbonated. Some sediment in the bottle, but the packaging made no mention of it being a live beer. Maybe it was not entirely filtered and the remaining yeast made use of some unused fermentables while in the bottle?

Also grabbed 12ers of Red Tail Ale and Blue Heron Pale Ale from Mendocino Brewing. Both good beers, but I prefer the Red Tail by a fair bit. Sweet, estery amber ale, plenty complex, but still easy to like. The pale is a more typical example of west coast pale ales, well hopped but not overly citrusy.

That help, bigjohn?

Beer is readily available in large quantities and tasty varieties. A beer will never say 'not tonight, dear.'

Well, I'm finally going. Tomorrow night, Adam and I are taking beer-virgin-tastebudded Ken to The Toronado for a guys-only belated-birthday night. (Happy 28th, Ken!) The goal is to not stop trying beers until he finds a kind he likes. I hope they do tasters!

To help make this possible, we're all loading up on pizza beforehand, and none of us is driving.

(Adam, this is your officail notification of the plans.)
