Not the biggest beer fan here, but I do enjoy Coronas, as well as Davidson Brother's Oatmeal Stout. Davidsons is a great microbrewery here in Glens Falls.

It's not that I dislike the boutique beer, I just dislike overpaying for it.
I prefer to pay a lot less and drink Iron City or Stroh's, from the same vats.

Here's where Samuel Adams beers are brewed...

Boston, MA AKA Jamaica Plain. Former Haffenreffer brewery, a company-owned facility brewing the Boston Ale and doing R/D work on other recipes.
Pittsburgh, PA: Pittsburgh Brewing Co. (Iron City) brews the largest portion (by volume) of Sam Adams beers, mostly lagers for eastern distribution.
Lehigh Valley, PA: Stroh Brewery Co. brews the ales for eastern distribution.
Portland, OR: Blitz-Weinhard Brewing Co. (owned by Stroh/G. Heileman). Most Sam Adams brews for western distribution.
Nagold, Germany: A Gambrinus brewery brews the Boston Lager for the European market.
The relationship with F.X. Matt of Utica, NY has ended and Sam Adams beers are no longer made there.
There is also a Sam Adams brewpub in Philadelphia, PA which brews ales from malt extract recipes.
Also, FYI, the Sam Adams Triple Bock was brewed at the Jamaica Plain facility and then shipped to Bronco Winery in Ceres, CA for aging in their vats.

I'm not a Corona fan, (but will drink a couple of free ones). Sam Adams doesn't taste like soap to me, but taste is an individual preference.

Many years ago I did a blind taste of eight different beers and was surprised at the results of what I liked and didn't like. Heineken was the lowest ranked beer I tried even lower than the Schlitz Light (which was a miserable beer by most standards). The moral of the story is we can let our tastes get manipulated by marketing versus what we enjoy.

Long Trail Two Bagger is my favorite. Shipyard IPA probabaly next.

I for one have fond memories of Corona from 20 years ago. 50 cents a bottle, sitting on the Mission Beach Sea wall and watching the girls roller skate by! Life was (is) sweet!!

After breaking my ass in the yard and garden, give me three of four PBR's. Then the good stuff my fav. Sierria Nevada Pale Ale. Dogfish Head from Del. is very good. Anyone ever been to the Lake Placid Pud & Brewery? Very good suff. The Frostbite Ale will knock you on your ass.

a corona without lime is nasty, with the right amount of lime its ok i guess. the one i had last night was free (then again my wife gave it to me- is that really free?)

This is ski related:
i still have my empty bottle of Cowboy Beer from my Jackson Hole trip. I think the beer is/was from Montana. I probably got it at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar-whicH I liked a lot

Happy Trails

Rstuthill,

When you said Castle Milk Stout, is that the South African beer? I've never seen that over here.

For me, I like Kenya's Tusker Lager, but it's very, very, very hard to find. It's less an "imported" and more a "smuggled," I think. Same with Namibia's Windhoek Special.

Daily drink is Yuengling.

I'll take anything from a micro & brew pub, but my favs would be:

Anything Long Trail, especially Double Bag
Anything Magic Hat, Hocus Pocus this season is wonderful
Anything Victory, especially Hop Devil & Hop Wallop with Storm King Stout in the winter.
Anything Troegs, especially Sunshine Pils & Hop Back


Have also visited Davidsons. If I recall, chili was wonderful...they cook it with their stout (correct me if I'm wrong Jeremy).

interesting, i didn't think sammy brewed in bean town any more. i stand corrected. used to be really into sammy but once you try some good beer, you realize most sammy's are not so great. don't get me wrong, they are probably the best commercialized beer out there (imo). i really like the double bock. i used to buy two cases of double bock in january and it would literally keep for the entire year until the next production.

C'mon, guys. When you come right down to it, has there ever been a beer that was truly bad without ANY redeeming features?? I think not. Including Fort Schuyler which used to sell for a buck a six around here a couple of decades (alright maybe three decades) back and which we affectionately referred to as Fart.

Porter, you are correct about Lion and Castle, the SA beers. Smuggled in is the appropriate term. Haven't found them here although I have not tried on the theory that the volume of boutique brews would have drowned out any demand. But I will try my buddy Septimus to see if he knows.

Now, Sled, I am going to have to bite. Is there really something called Polygamy Porter? Gotta think you are putting us on, buddy

that about sums it up. beer and fruit should not be mixed. further, corona with lime is proof that good fruit does not make a crappy beer any better.

and i would have to disagree regarding no beering being completely lacking in redeeming quantities. i can think of many beers you would have to pay me to drink. in varrying amounts depending upon the beer.

Would a sledhauler steer you wrong? Take a peek at Wasatch Beers' Web site. I believe they still have Squatter's in SLC, but they seem to be favoring the Park City Location. It's good. Bring some home to the wives.

[/quote]

I'm not big on fruit and beer, but on a really hot day, a REALLY cold Corona with a lime is not bad course of action. (You can save some change and substitute Coors light and save some money...both are nearly equally devoid of flavor.)

The Wheat beers with fruit in them do nothing for me. The only thing a little more bizare is taking three things I like: Green Chiles, Taos and beer and combining them. Eske's "Taos Green Chile Beer"

Despite this misguided creation, I highly recomend a visit if you're in NM.

Sled, I'll be damned.

Works for me ... but I doubt it would work for my best buddy of almost 27 years.

Had some Polygamy Porter at the Wasatch Brew Pub in Park City last March -- even got a hat. It's a good brew, just not my favorite style of beer. Nice place to grab a bite too.

Someone mentioned Shed Mountain Ale and I agree that it's a terrific brew.

I've really been into Keegan Ales in kingston New York...
They make a chocolate stout called "Mothers Milk" thats incredible!!!
http://www.keeganales.com/ourBeer.html

Also been drinking lots of Long Trail "Double Bags"... Great taste.. High alcohol content...

Like Anchor Steam on tap.... also Brooklyn Lagers.. Guiness... Heartland Brewery in NYC makes a nice "Harvest Wheat" that I love alot...

Refuse to drink Bud, Coors or any other crap... Just hate the taste...
I'm a total beer snob.. I will drink a Yingling or Corona if I need to though..
