Re: For the Beer Drinkers

I've actually been hitting a local shop here that specializes in world beers.
I've been enjoying Chimay, brewed by Trappist monks.
Unibroue, made in Quebec, VERY good ale!
1. 750ml bottle runs about $8 .00 but you know where the money went when you drink it. Good SHTUFF! ! !

Re: For the Beer Drinkers

I'm spoiled here in the Northwest. The beer on the shelves in the supermarket is good, and there are lots of brewpubs here offering fresh and flavorful brews. One is right down my street. Now that the owner has stopped trying to brew the beer himself and hired a brewmaster, it's my favorite pub in town.

I would love to try some of those expensive bottles of beer, especially the Egyptian one. It reminds me that I've also wanted to try mead and other ancient brews as well.

Re: For the Beer Drinkers

I wonder why the brews are so expensive? They don't really go into the process behind them.

Re: For the Beer Drinkers

£39 a pint? Thats a pricey tipple...

I'm a bit of an ale fan, I even have a Trinkhorn I bought in belgium and a couple of tankards for when I'm feeling medieval. My housemates and I have managed to cover the top of the kitchen units in a couple of hundred different kinds of ales. The best was probably one of the honey ales, there was a banana one I quite enjoyed too. The worst one was heather ale. They use heather instead of hops and it is truly horrible.

I've got a bottle of mead right here. It's been sat next to my pc for about two months now. I've been saving it for a 'special occasion' which hasn't arrived yet...

Re: For the Beer Drinkers

Here's a blurb on the Sam Adams:

Quote:
Truly the epitome of brewing's two thousand year evolution, Samuel Adams Utopias™ offers a flavor not just unlike any other beer but unlike any other beverage in the world. Its warm, sweet flavor is richly highlighted with hints of vanilla, oak and caramel. Our 2005 batch topped out at 25% ABV, beating the records that Samuel Adams® Triple Bock® and Samuel Adams® Millennium had set before it. And like those groundbreaking brews, Samuel Adams Utopias™ is not carbonated and should be served at room temperature. In one of many examples where Samuel Adams Utopias™ pushed the boundaries of beer, it received the highest recommendation (96-100 points) from the prestigious Wine Enthusiast Magazine (November, 2003 edition).

Due to legal restrictions, Samuel Adams Utopias™ can not be sold in the states of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Missouri, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, South Carolina, Washington, and West Virginia.

The latest in our strong brews, Samuel Adams Utopias™ has been brewed in two small limited batches to date. The first batch which was released in 2001 as Samuel Adams Utopias MMII topped out at 24% ABV, while the second batch which was released in 2003 as Samuel Adams Utopias™ rounded out at 25% ABV. Both batches were released only once and in limited quantities.

Samuel Adams Utopias™ was brewed at a very high gravity using a wide variety of malted barley and a touch of maple syrup. It was then fermented and conditioned in a blend of scotch, bourbon, port and cognac casks for up to ten months using a pair of proprietary yeast strains we developed at our Boston Brewery.
The recommended serving size is 2 oz. I'm thinking the 2005 was a typo.

Re: For the Beer Drinkers

The problem with the first one is that there will always be some city twat that will pay that.

Re: For the Beer Drinkers

Yeah we're a bit spoiled for beer up here in (CANADA). So many choices . . . What I love is how many microbreweries we've got around here - maybe more than beer stores! I'll never be able to try 'em all.
