I loved that Belgian Shop link, Peter. Thank you.

I thought this thread needed a bump. Lots of newbies around who may not have yet experienced the glory of the Beer Thread.

Speaking of experiencing the glory, I recently had the good fortune to drink some Cazadores Reposado. Changed my life, I tell you. While it will be difficult for me to justify spending $36.95 on a fifth of Tequila, this stuff transcends.

Yes, we do have a lot of tax on the state-controlled liquor sales in Washington.

New Belgiun has a summer brew out called Loft. Its pretty interesting, almost a wheat beer but crossed with a lager.

Boulavard also has new one out, called Zon or something like that. It's sorta is like a wheat but has a touch of orange in it.

BigHombreTom! That Cazadores is good stuff. I was first introduced to it by a student in my class a few years back who said his dad and uncles would "drink the tequila with the deer on it and sleep in the front yard".
My Costco has it at $30/L.
How about Herradura? A little more spicy than the Cazadores, but very good and in the ball park price-wise, too.
Lots to choose from in tequila.
I picked up a bottle of Unibroue 2004 and Terrible after reading pmb and his crew go on and on about the stuff. Gonna lay them up in the frig for a while.

Hola, Bigwill!!

My Costco doesn't sell spirits because my state is retarded. But at least our governor doesn't hate the citizens.

I have not seen the Herradura here, but I'll look.

I really dig those Unibroue beers. Let me know what you think.

Don't lay 'em too long. You'll just have to let them sit out that much longer to bring them to the right operating temperature.

Where'd you find the 2004? I've been having a little trouble getting my hands on it. Guess I need to look around some more.

I tried both Optimator Spantin Munich and Salvator Double Bock. I liked them both very much but probably the Salvator better because it had less texture in the aftertaste.
Any other suggestions along those lines?

Celebrator Doppelbock is my favorite of the German double bocks. I haven't been able to find it locally, though.

EDIT: Another great beer along these lines is the Schneider-Weisse Aventinus. It is wonderfully dark and drinkable.
