Ah, fond, fond memories of Max's on Broadway...

Out here in LA, the Costco gets the Guinness 15 packs in on a regular. The price tends to shift a bit, but it's always pretty cheap. Last week, I grabbed 4 cases for $12.99 a pop - economy rules!

Other than that, tho, CA's hard to find a good beer in, outside of a bar or restaurant. The old standbys of Pete's and Sam Adams are easy, but I haven't seen Saranac in years. I'd kill for a good Chocolate Amber.

When I taught elementary at a school nearby, we LIVED at Max's every Friday afternoon beginning at about 4:30 or 5. And if we weren't there, we were at Friend's or the Wharf Rat. Fell's Point has great watering holes.

Ahh, Saranac...Yum!

    Aww, Heineken isn't that bad. For a mass-produced beer, I'll take it. It's better than your average American swill, at the least. Something that struck me as amusing when I was in Ireland was the amount of people drinking Heineken. I expected them all to be drinking lovely black pints, but the lager enjoys a degree of popularity.

    For some reason, one beer I really can't get into is the India pale ale. The Harpoon IPA, at least. (Is that a local thing? Pieman, maybe you know). It just seems too... one dimensional. Sharp, but not full.



I haven't seen the Harpoon up here, but I am a fan of some IPAs. Our really local brewery is called Oak Pond Brewery in Skowhegan. It's not distributed very far from Central Maine and I'm not sure I want to share either. Very nice selection of brews.

I've had Guinness before, and it never put hair on *my* chest.

Seriously, though I usually drink wine coolers, I've also liked Gray's Honey Ale (it's from a little brewery just south of Madison, in Janesville).

I've never really liked the Guinness, its a wee too much like liquid cereal in a bottle for my taste.

Since I was just recently home and my little brother recently turned 21 he was still in a "let's try every beer in the import beer section" phase. So I ended up picking up something called "Delirium Tremens Belgian Ale" I haven't had a chance to try it out but I figured anything with pink elephants on the bottle couldn't be horrible.

Is it Guiness that has that little white ice-cube-shaped thing in the bottle? That thing freaked me out. I like Guiness, but I prefer it in the Black-n-Tan variety.

There's a bar up in Boston (Allston, actually) that has 112 beers on tap, and plenty more in bottles. That was the first place I'd ever had flavored brews. Their pumpkin pie lager was excellent, but I'd crave their chocolate brew -- tasted just like a Reisen candy. Just thinking about that place makes me miss all those flavors of Magic Hat. But on the plus side, I'm finally somewhere where they've *heard* of Yuengling and Pocono Lager. Vanilla cream stout sounds awesome though, I'm gonna have to look for it.

Well, uh...the Guinness and hairy chest thing...uh...you have to have enough testosterone in your system for it to react with, so it really only works on guys, except for that one weird girl you'll see working in some fast food joint in West Virginia or something who's got the super dark arm hair, and she probably already had the chest hair anyway. So yeah. Are you sure you were looking close enough? If not, find someone who will...yeah.

Anchor porter is really yummy (but all Anchor beer is at the high end of the cost scale.) Firestone double barrel ale is great, though it isn't that dark. for a pale ale, Sierra Nevada is one of the best. Albertsons has been selling Redhook for $8.99 a 12 pack which is a fair price for good beer, especially with premiums going for about $7.49 a 6er nowadays. Don't buy beer at Ralphs unless it's an emergency because they cost more than the liquor store.

Guiness does, indeed, have the ice-cube thing. It's a CO2 cartridge that airates the stout when you open the can. Good, good stuff, but don't believe them when they say you can drink it straight from the bottle - it's OK that way, but it still tastes better poured into a pint glass.

Man, I miss the Magic Hat, too, and they haven't heard of Yuengling out here, either. I've just started brewing my own beer again, so I'll have to get ahold of my old roomate and see if he has any recipes for that stuff. If I can't buy it, I'll just make my own!
