If you're into the really deep, dark and rich stuff check out this if you can find it. Four pack and case if your lucky. Hide it in your coal bin and you'll never find it again ;)

I like Grolsch when my budget allows. Right now, my budget is cheap domestic lite beer.

Just bought a case of the Victory HopDevil. Great stuff. Also got a case of Sam Adams Cream Stout.

I've also got a couple of partial cases of some home brews me and a friend brewed up. A pale ale and a brown ale. Both very tasty!

I'm not a big fan of fruity flavor beers, but if you ever get a chance and you like Half and Half's, you should try Guinness on top of Sam Adams Cherry Wheat. :drool:

I've reached the stage in life where I no longer view stout as medicine. :) Guinness (draft only) is good, if drawn correctly. Out of a bottle, I've found nothing better than Young's Double Chocolate. Not sweet.

Though Yuengling has improved a lot, I've yet to find better lager in the U.S. than Sam's. And I agree that almost anything German is a treat.

But we had the good fortune to be in Belgium for a week summer before last, and it's the home office for "hi-test" brews, often double and triple the punch of ours. 8-) And nearly every one has its own distinctive glass and pour technique. Mecca for beer lovers.

stockingfull, near cooperstown is Ommegang Brewery. Home of some belgain style ales. My sister in law worked their briefly as a tour guide. She brought me a couple of cases of their "seconds". Partially filled bottles, screwed up labels. It was awesome. Then, without telling me, she quits! All before I could get her to get a truckload!!! ARRRRGGGGHHHH!!!!! :mad: :mad:

Their three philosphers ale is one of the best beers of all time. You need a goblet glass for those abbey style beers, then a skinny long glass for the hennipin.

I could drink beer all day if it wasn't for this damn job!

Before I got into the heating business, I worked for Schaeffers, Strohs and Pabst for 27 years. We brewed Yuengling and Sam Adams and a whole lot of other beers. When I started there and up until about 1988 we had beer coolers in the lunchrooms and it was my job as a brewer, to keep them filled. On a daily basis I would take a large cart from the rail shed where the employee beer was sold. We were allowed to buy 5, sometimes 10 cases a week at $2 per case, with the price going up to $5 per case at the end of my career. I never drank, so I bought for lots of people who did.

The Sam Adams beer was made from good stuff. Alot of the beer was Schaeffer or Old Milwaukee packaged under a multitude of different brand names.

Hey, J.C., does this mean I'm not the only one for whom Yuengling was rot-gut years ago?? :D

But it's fair to say it's quite a bit better now. No?

I thought it was a better tasting beer Years ago when they used the copper tanks the beer had more of a bite to it. Then it has now using S.S. it sure was much cheaper back then 5 bucks for a 1/4 barrel 10 bucks for a 1/2 barrel a case of 24 was 3.00 bucks 3 Qt.for a buck I always liked the lord Chesterfield Ale. I hate the lager :sick:

Victory Storm King Stout when I want to splurge, about 35 bucks a case.Yuengling Black and Tan or Porter in between.

I love the Pennsylvania brews.Tried several Sam Adams offerings but gave it away after a couple bottles.

some of the Youngs brewery stouts and ales of London England are very good.

How long ago did they change to S.S.?

I'll assume it happened long before 94-97 when I was out at college in PA, but I could always taste a difference between Lager I had out there and what I purchased here in NJ. I went so far as to email them many years ago and asked why I couldn't get fresh tasting Lager over here...I don't recall what became of that... :drunk:
