that oatmeal stout is delicious. chimay is also good.

i don't drink as much as i used to, but i had a young's chocolate stout the other night and tonight i had a blue moon winter ale 'round the corner at mac's. it went well with the salmon sandwich and mashed potatoes. yum.

i really like aventinus...mmm...dopplebock. and delirium tremens. and anything from new belgium brewery in colorado. i love throwing a scoop of vanilla ice cream in a pint of guinness. and any time's a good time for lambics, especially green apple. i'm kind of a beer nerd :oops:

Hey man, what's wrong with good old Miller High Life? Nothing. Nothing is.

I've always been a Bell's Two Hearted guy myself. When Earwig played Kalamazoo last fall (at a brewery), Justin & I naturally sprinted straight across the street to Bell's, where we tried almost everything they had on tap. Their Hopslam is AWFULLY tasty, and it is finally available here in town. On a day that I get decent tip$, I go to Culpepper's and pick up a six-pack. Downside: $16 after tax. Plus side: in addition to being AWFULLY tasty, it contains a whopping 10 percent alcohol. I can't even finish a six-pack, and I can put 'em away (as anyone can tell ya). I happened to be drinking the Hopslam last night when I posted some bizarre rants on this very message board. I need to put a breathalyser on this damn thing.

hmm...trying to think of something good to recommend. i tend to go for stouts over porters. unfortunately, my favorite porter is brewed about 2k miles away in boise. it's called total disorder porter and it rules. i miss pacific northwest breweries :( at least i can still get pyramid apricot ale here in OH.

I've been working my way through all the Bells cold weather brews before they disappear for the season. The Expedition Stout makes me want to drive to the U.P. and sit naked in the snow.

I've also been stuck on anything by Full Sail (IPA, Pale, Amber, Wassail).

The Organic Porter by Butte Creek is a solid choice, I know nothing about Port.

great lakes. ballantine. victory prima pils. and a considerable amount of basil haden's whiskey has gotten me through the winter thus far. my stomach, is, as usual, not liking me... but laying off the blow helps.

I have really been enjoying the Bells Winter White this winter. I was very happy to go to Surly girl and find it on tap! I also enjoy the Great Lakes Conways Irish Ale and the Brooklyn Winter Ale. Then there is always the backup Stella 6 pack in the fridge.

yep, they know what they're doing out in the pac nw. are you thinking of flying dog? they're out of denver and ralph steadman does their stylin' artwork. i've always considered denver to be honorary pac nw. i think i've seen their stuff at andersen's....my columbus beer mecca. hmm...other than that, nothing comes to mind off the top o my head.

i'm heading out to boise/seattle later this year to see the in-laws and am already scheming about what i'm gonna have first. these two will be repeat offenders:

i really don't know anything about wine except that i love shiraz. that is all.

I was a total hops addict until about a year or so ago, when I guess I OD'd on it. That's when I got completely hooked on high-gravity Belgian beers...golden, amber, brown, doppels, tripels, etc. And they sure don't have to be from Belgium, especially when places like Weyerbacher and Brewery Ommegang make 'em. But I love the ones from Sproutland, too, like Piraat, La Chouffe, and Gulden Draak. Frankly, in that company Chimay comes off like weak cheese, not just in terms of alcohol content but also in flavor.

If you can still find Trader Joe's 2007 ale, snap it up! It's a Belgian-style brown ale made by Unibroue in Canada...it not only beats the pants off Chimay, it's also half the price.

How are you guys finding New Belgium beers around here? I've been looking for Fat Tire Ale east of the Mississippi for-freakin'-ever.

Oh, and many of my bandmates are rather partial to Oranjeboom (Dutch for "PBR")...it's actually a pretty damn fine lager, and it comes in tallboy cans.

A friend of mine makes an amazing faux Fat Tire among other beers.

yeah...new belgium has always had limited distribution, but it looks like they've expanded their area a bit. at this point, it looks like the nearest place to get anything is IL. i love fat tire, but their 1554 black ale is also REALLY good...ah hell...everything they do is good. new belgium beers are as commonplace as budweiser out west...wish that was the case here.

new belgium is a great company as well. they give their employees a bike after one year of employment and are the first windpowered brewery in existence, a conversion that their employees dipped into their bonuses to make happen. and of course, they take home free beer every week :)

I think Illinois is as close as Fat Tire comes to Columbus. I used to LOVE Fat Tire, and I can't believe I'm typing this, but I think its lost a step. I don't know if the Fat Tire now just isn't as good as it used to be because they're producing so much more of it, or if everyone else just caught up and are now making better beer, but it's not nearly as tasty as it used to be.

Nonetheless, New Belgium is still a cool worker friendly and environmentally conscious company. Their 1549 Black Ale is pretty awesome, I still have one bottle tucked in the back of my fridge from our last trip to Chicago.
