Cheers !

Nietzscha I don't know very much about beer sadly, but my husband brews. He brews Amber Ales, IPAs (I can't stand IPAs), and Mead (yes I know mead is not beer). My husband has dreams of quitting his job and starting a brewery. I normally like stouts with dessert, the ones that taste more like coffee the better! My favorite beers though are sours, and beers similar to sours. Rodenbach is among my favorites, but unfortunately it's expensive. To me, Rodenbach is good with Caprese salad or just about any fruit! I also love some Lambics, my favorite being Belgian Framboise Beer in strawberry. Our local beer store had a tasting where they put the strawberry Framboise with the chocolate Framboise to make it taste like a dessert, and it was really cool, although I prefer the strawberry by itself. Of course, there's always PBR :P . If I'm drinking wine, I'm the typical girl who likes Moscato, and the cheaper the better! For some reason I just really like the cheap stuff when it comes to wine; complete opposite of my beer taste. Just about any mead is good mead to me, as well as ciders! We are lucky that we have a local brewery right down the street from us; Thomas Creek. My hubby loves Thomas Creek and I enjoy some of their beers.

In Canada, and that'd be awesome thanks!

I do know that some breweries that make Guinness don't filter with isinglas (sp?), but I don't think there are any in Canada. Mill Street has a Vanilla porter that is nitrogen-charged and they don't use isinglas to process their beers so most are vegan, but you can't really find it outside of Toronto.

BlackBoxed Does anyone have any nitrogen-charged beer suggestions? Guinness and Kilkenny are both non-vegan due to the way it's usually processed -- though, I have been encouraged to see if our local brewery uses the same process. While I'm not a huge Guinness fan, I always did like it the creamy, foamy bits. =)

EvilCartman If your in Southern California or have decent distribution in your area I recommend you get your hands on some Modern Times Beers! They are normally labeled if they are vegan with "This beer is Vegan". It takes all of the guess work and research out.

DTASFAB Best beer ever! This is what Sam Adams Summer Ale tries to be.

LedBoots A microbrewery/restaurant opened near me. The beer is amazing, and they have a couple of good vegan food offerings! The only downside is the cost, of course. smiley.gif

The History of Organic Hefe-Weizen

Wheat beer is a Bavarian specialty. In the 16th century, the Electors of Bavaria declared beer made from wheat to be a monopoly of the state, which remained for centuries.

Taste

Very light in body and color. Crisp, dry, spritzy, and refreshing unfiltered beer. Clean ale-yeast aroma and flavor, without the characteristic yeasty spiciness of a Bavarian wheat beer.

Serving Suggestion

...spinach salads..., gazpacho. Serve in tall vase-shaped glass garnished with a thin slice of lemon.

ABV: 5.1% - OG: 1.048 - IBU: 20

Best beer around? Are the jokes what ever is cheap OR whatever is cold.

Yuengling's, America's oldest brewery out of Pennsylvania . A lot of the nation would not know about them while I know most back East do. It may be a popular beer or ale but is not real expensive. I believe Bud's American Ale emulates them. I first had it while in the DC area.

I do believe this thread needs a resurrecting!

 

Wolaver's Oatmeal Stout from Otter Creak Brewing in VT.  Wolaver's is the organic sub-brand (?) of Otter Creak.

 

Very solid oatmeal stout

 

It pours a very smooth dark black color with almost no head.  There is a bit of lacing from the small amount of head

I am not usually good at picking out smells, but I'm gonna go with a bit of roasted malt and molasses.

The taste is wonderfully complex.  It starts with molasses and some bitter chocolate and ends with roasted malt.  It has a medium feel and the taste hangs around a little

 

 

Overall   :clap:  I like it a lot

Two new beers that I've tried and recommend:

 

Wachusett Larry Imperial IPA. - A well made Imperial IPA with grapfruit overtones (from the hops), not my favoraite hop imparted flavor, but if you like grapefruit, you'll like this beer

http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/20/51428

 

Goose Island Matilda - A Belgian Strong Pale Ale. - A solid offering of this style. A little less "full bodied" tham most.

It seems I was wrong all along. Apparently beer is all about the "image" and "emotial connection", and has nothing to do with taste or quaility...

Well given that 4 of the top 5 selling beers are light beers they may be on to something.

Never seen it around here before... but will keep an eye out if I hit one of the specialty beer/wine stores.

This is my hands down favorite Scotch Ale, I usually pick up a couple of growlers of it when visiting my daughter who lives probably 1/4 mile from the brewery.

I beg all of you, please go out of your way to avoid purchasing InBev (Budweiser) products. Heaven forbid they should use their enormous cash flow to make craft quality beers (under a different name, of course so as not to offend their base)..but no.. instead they have to force the competition off the shelves...

Won't ever knowingly buy or drink their products. We have enough made in Montana brews so it'll never happen.
