Craft beer Drinkers Unite!

I used to drink the big labeled beers, Sam Adams, Coors, etc... After spending time with my neighbor, he introduced me to the World of Craft beer...THANK GOD!



I am interested to hear what everyone here drinks or collects and what they like. I will go first.



I would have to say my favorite is Dog Fish Head as a brand as well as the collectables. In NJ here there is a Brewer called Beach Haus which i have began to like on a Summer basis, but will indulge a little in the winter with their Winter Rental (Lager.)



My Top 5 that I buy on a daily basis is as follows:



Dog Fish



Dale's Pale Ale (can's)



Lagunitas



Troegs



Full Sail & Session



What's everyone else like?!

    Mammoth Brewery



    Only found in about a 50 mile radius around Mammoth. Amazing beers and I always stock way up when I go up there. Truly never had a beer that from them that I didn't love.



    2. Lost Coast.



    Their Great white is the best white ale I've had



    3. some might call this heresy but Dogfish Head comes in third, possibly just because I've personally been to the other two brewerys.



    Oh and of course the best craft beer ever. Coors Light hee hee

    Lost Abby serpent stout is legit! Need to try some of their other stuff, if it even comes close then I'll be a fan.



    I love the left hand milk stout, and Sonoran makes a seasonal white chocolate ale that is delicious, makes an awesome black n tan with the youngs double chocolate stout.



    Not a fan of ipa for the most part, but I'm drinking a San tan ipa from a can right now and it's going down pretty well.





    I've got to hand out the most disgusting beer I've ever tasted award to bells cherry stout. It was disgusting, like drinking bad tasting robotussun. Not a fan of anything bells puts out.



    Big fan of nimbus, delirium, and fireside beers.



    Had a 3 floyds in Chicago that was absolutely yummy, but haven't seen it in az yet.



    All in all, not of these will ever replace the hole I have in my heart(and stomache) for my beloved cafferys Irish ale.

    I am not a fan of the Cherry Stout but I really like a lot of Bells beers. Kinda surprised you don't like any of their beers. I guess to each their own.

    I picked up some DOG FISH HEAD Pangaea Sunday. One of the best I have ever had. The bad part is it's on hiatus and very hard to find. I was able to pick up a few more liter bottles for $10.

    If you like IPA's their Two Hearted Ale is awesome. I also like their Hopslam and Oberon a lot. Amber Ale, Best Brown and Ocktoberfest are good too.

    My all-time favorite is Founders Breakfast Stout (which a couple of people already have mentioned). I also enjoy the following:



    Delirium Tremens, Nocturnum, and Noel



    Bell's Oberon



    Three-Floyds Gumball Head and Alpha King



    Maui Brewing Co. CoCoNut Porter



    Dogfish Head ImmortAle and India Brown Ale



    Also Duvel.



    And this past winter, I've really, really enjoyed Affligem Noel. I also had an amazing Sam Adams (I know, I know) Double Pumpkin Ale (this isn't the Harvest Pumpkin Ale) on tap at our local pub, and I have to say it was the best pumpkin ale I've ever had. Too bad it wasn't available in bottles.

    Scuplin is one of the finest IPA's money can buy. Living in San Diego, I am proud to be in craft beer mecca. I can't throw a rock without hitting a great bar with a ton of microbrews.



    When you can go to your local 7-11 and pick up a 6 of stone IPA, you know you are in good hands.

    I'm a HUGE craft beer fan and have been quite active in my local craft beer scene (volunteering at events, writing articles for websites, even being used as a sounding board for a brewery that started up a few months ago) and can safely say that craft beer is a passion I have even over golf.



    It's hard for me to pick favorites as they change all the time but if anyone ever needs a suggestion about something to try, just shoot me a BM! I love chatting about beer, or golf, or both!



    Cheers! drinks.gif

    Its rather funny to me how Canada is suppose to be know for its beer and beer drinkers. Our craft (micro) beers are good but never available. Almost ever person here prefers the taste of a commercial brew (coors, molson, bud, blue Brava). If you go into any bar they most likely have one craft beer on tap if any. The only place that has more than one are beir market and places that are know for the offerings which are very limited at best.

    I wish we would support our local breweries more. When I was in cleveland I was shocked at how many craft beers were offered and the varieties. Here we have 5% alcohol and that is about it. Now I dont care about the alcohol content but it does allow for different tastes.

    My point is for a country know for its beer we certainly suck at supporting our local breweries and we definitely have no taste buds for good beer but rather a taste for any beer that is good enough (or cheap enough) to get us drunk.

    What doesnt help in the province of Ontario were I live is the beer is only sold at The Beer Store which is owned by the 3 major breweries. They don't even run credit accounts for large bars or give quantity discounts for them as well. Our Liquir can only be sold at the LCBO. With all these monopolies when you come to our great province you will find you pay roughly $34 for a 24 of blue and about $26 for a 26'er of reg vodka, gin etc.

    We Also cant have any funny names or the governement will shut down the brewery until the name is approved or changed.



    Sorry for my rant but just venting on why craft (micro) breweries are dying in Canada.



    That being said my favourite beer when I was in Cleveland was Dogfish head IPA

    Here it is Creemore springs but I do like flying ****'s offerings (brewery was shut down until the name was approved)
