that sounds like a great time peter

if he has to drink til he finds a good one, start with the dark bocks. those are super heavy, and way strong, so chances are he should have a plenty good buzz once he gets thru those.. after that, a small pile of dog poo should taste good.. hell, he wont know the difference, or even care for that matter!!

OK, j/k.. i am not into abusing the drunk and defenseless..

















BS.. ok, i am.

That doesn't sound like the right place to start for Ken. From what I've gathered over the years, we need to start not necessarily with a lighter beer, but one which emphasized malts over hops. Big on the midpalate, soft on the aftertaste.

Bingo!

The one beer I can say conclusively that I enjoyed was Horn Dog. That was also how I realized that beers have to be at the right temperature. The first one I had was great. Then I had another a week later that had been in the fridge, and it was horrid! Surprised the hell out of me...

I love barleywines, and not just because they're typically around twice as potent as your average brew. The Toronado is having a barelywine festival next month. We'll have to go back. I know Adam and I are already planning on it.

You'll have to remind me when that festival is again, Peter (hope I'm not working nights those days...). I've never had barleywine, either.

I know it's not the greatest beer in the world - according to Tom, what's he know? - but my Costco discounted their last 3 cases of Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale to $9.97 per case. I grabbed them all and even managed to get them to discount the last one to $7 - it was missing 3 beers.
I haven't tried it yet, but at that price (and with 6.8% abv) I figured it was a pretty solid bargain.
Everybody on the Axiom forum seems to appreciate a bargain, eh?

Hey hey hey now! I don't think I said I didn't like it, I think I said I was disappointed, especially in the context of all the other wonderful winter seasonals that are available.

Good find. How does it help the rest of us, exactly?

Oh, and to answer your direct question - Not much. You?

Snipes Mountain Brewery, a smallish operation in Sunnyside, WA (near Yakima) is making darn fine beer. Highly recommended.

Tom, you sarcastic a$$. I advise you to go check your Costco (clearly what I implied).

Actually, I'm having the second one of those Sierra Nevada's right now (finals week - minimum day - hope I don't spill beer on someone's essay). What struck me immediately is the spruce and pine with citrus hop character - not at all in style, is it?

Too bad, too, because the body is excellent, great head, clear as day - a well made beer. The hop character has subsided some with a temp increase and it is definitely drinkable.

I'm envious of you guys in the northwest - all the pubs you link to seem cozy and nice. Ours tend to be large and corporate down here - or small, grimy and dangerous. And the people here aren't quite as warm and friendly either - maybe friendliness is directly inversely proportional to the number of freeways an area has?

Just for kicks, what does that brewpub charge for 1/2 barrels?

My latest Costco score was a case of Lagunitas IPA. Tasty!

Haven't had that one. Have you supplied bigjohn with a review yet?
