I don't drink beer much anymore but in my younger days we enjoyed Coopers Ale from Down Under. Nothing like drinking that yeast on the bottom of the bottle to wake ya up.

My father was a beer appricianado(sic) and when I brought back some Coors, before it was available in the east, he wasn't too impressed as I remember him commenting that it tasted like beer flavored water. When they came out with Coors Light he really was at a lost for words.

Sounds like we have a few who enjoy the finer beers like I do. How many out there can enjoy & handle the barleywine style ales?

Ahhhh, Beast, why did you have to bring up the barleywines....my mouth is salivating right now. Many a time have I enjoyed a hand pulled from any of the Brew Pubs during the winter months.

Victory makes Old Horizontal. Wonderful if you can get it...only distrubuted in the Phila PA region. Victory

Another is Blithering Idiot made by Weyerbacher, also a Phila PA regional micro. Weyerbacher

Sorry! That is by far my favorite style of ales. You have named two of my favorite ones that I'm sorry to tell you is availible just over the line in W. Springfield MA. This liquor store stocks both of them year round. Have you tried the Sierra Nevada "Bigfoot Ale"? That was my first barleywine that I tried years ago. At first I hated it but with time I learned to love it.

Yes, Bigfoot a few years ago, and Old Salty from a local micro by me Heavyweight Brewing. Also, Monster Ale is a good selection Brooklyn Brewing. Basically, it seems you just cannot go wrong with any barleywines.

Two local brewpubs in the Berkshire area I remember having wonderful barleywines are The Peoples Pint in Pittsfield MA and McNeils in Brattleboro VT. Took a self-guided brewpub tour with the wife on our first wedding anniversary back in 2000. Hit those two pubs and about 6 others on a long weekend. Needless to say, our first child was born 9 months later.

Lots of Long Trail fans in this crowd- I have to agree, it's my all-time favorite micro. Tuckerman's Ale is pretty good too. I used to like Red Rack from Woodstock Brewery, but the last time I had it, it didn't taste the same as I remembered it from before. I used to drink a lot of Canadian and German beer before the local microbrews came into their own.
Hey Woodcore- I've heard of Mosse Drool! Big Mountain/Whitefish Montana, correct? Did a trip out there a few years back...

My preferences are pretty simple. Avoid canned or plastic bottled beers at all costs. Drink drafts before bottles.
Drink local or microbrews whenever possible. They are fresher than imports or the big brewerys. Avoid all light beers. Never, ever mix fruit with beer.

I had a prototype brew of Anchor's Barleywine, which was way too sweet for my taste. (Although, in fairness, they did say that they'd by adding more hops as they developed it). I really haven;t tried one since (about 1982). I supose I should give SN Bigfoot a try.

Every Sunday after we close the mountain we head over to the Charlemont Inn for a couple!

I think that the ski industry would find some value in this discussion thread. NELSAPers are so unlike the general population in their tastes it is incredible. But I think that we are completely mainstream among the skiing population. This thread should be a marketer's dream.

Maybe I haven't read the thread closely enough, but has anyone mentioned Red Stripe??

I have started a small personal tuning shop in my basement and on the shelves on the wall I am trying to collect one bottle of each microbrew I have consumed since moving to Bennington. It's going pretty well... I am pretty proud of myself if I may say so
