    I find it hard to believe that so many people lack the ability to recognize hyperbole.

  6. All American beer has flavor- it's just usually bad. :ninja:
    I like Sudwerks Doppel Bock.

    arent they going to be bought out by some huge south american brew house?

    but with all these microbreweries being tossed around, look in your area. there must be someone you could support.

    i'm from philly, so cant go wrong w/ Yuengling. cant imagine that being too hard to find.

    in NYC, its all about Southhampton Ale. their double white is flippin' awesome for summer. tho i cant help but feel like i'm drinking the equivalent to liquified cake. :D

    Ooooh! That's one of my favorites too. In fact Rogue's high up there among my favorite breweries. Their Morimoto soba ale is clean and wonderful.

  12. If you have a BevMo near you, your options are numerous.

    I recently discovered a shop next to the Guitar Center in Roseville, CA that has some amazing beer selection, kinda like an alternative to BevMo. I spend $140 on beer during my first visit there a couple weeks ago. I have a whole bunch of stuff in the fridge waiting for anyone who wants to share good beer experience with me.

    I don't know of any other American beers though I'm learning of some through this thread :) If it's an American Beer but not Sam Adams I usually have a local brew called Wachusett.

    Ahhhhh, yes, but for July 4th, he'll want Shiner's Summer Ale (not as good as Sam Adams, but still, good), or their Heffeweizen (a truly lovely brew). Its too hot for Bock! LOL!

    Cherie ;)
     
  16. There are dozens of US beers with wonderful flavor. Anything from the microbreweries in Colorado, Oregon or Washington is a good candidate. Generally the darker the more flavor.

    And having lived in Texas, Shiner Bock is my most frequent indulgence. Nice flavor without getting heavy. To me, it's a great beer any time of year. The Shiner Blonde is good but doesn't have the character of the bock. I'm not a hefeweizen fan myownself.

    Some good beers from the backwards state. Some of my faves:

    Deshutes Brewery:
    Black Butte Porter
    Obsidian Stout

    Widmer:
    Drop Top Amber Ale
    Broken Halo IPA
    Snowplow Stout

    Also like the Sierra Nevada Steelhead Double IPA from Cal
    and if your ever in Fortuna, CA -- by all means drop by the Eel River Brewing Co. America's first certified organic brewery. Great beer! Try the Amber! YUm! GREAT food as well!

    but I drink mostly crappy cheap ice beers.

    Had some Mad Hat #9 tonight after some recommendations on this thread. Not bad...it tastes a bit like Bass only with a slight fruity flavor.

    It's a little hole in the wall bar, but it's not a bad little place. It was kind of dead when I played there because the band I was with at the time didn't promote all that well. On a hopping night, it would be pretty awesome. There is a little Italian place across the street(s) that is amazingly good. Calzones that melt in your mouth.
