Beer Lovers-Come On In

It's fall and I was curious what types of beers our community likes to indulge in during the colder seasons. There is a pumpkin beer called Pumking that is made in WNY (Southern Tier Breweries-Lakewood, NY) that is the gold standard for pumpkin type beers. What other types do you enjoy? What say you?

I like a hoppy type ale... like a scottish ale, But an English Brown Ale.... or a hopped up IPA can substitute. Here is the link to one of the local watering holes that have my vote ... they make a watermelon beer that is a nice summer drink. Apocalypse Brew Works | Drink Beer Til The Endİ

I also endeavor to do the home brew thing.... nothing like the bragging rights over a nicely done batch. I would like to do the keg thing but I brew only two gallon batches in my little Mr Beer Brew kit and do not sip at the brew at a rate that deserves big batches.

I like the Belgiums, the Brits and the Irish. But my standby for any time, any season, any where is a frosty salted mug, a squeeze of lime and Tecate. I don't go in for winter wheat - October pumpkin etc etc. And don't get me started on citrus beer - New Belgium tires or moons of any size or color. No offense to anyone with a love for those - they just don't work for me.

Hello!!

I've been lurking here for a while. I haven't had anything to say yet as I've been absorbing as much information as I can.

But as for beer, I've been researching this for years :-D

I really like the Sam Adams October fest for store bought beer, but homebrewing is a blast! I play the mad scientist...and make 10 gallon batches.

For some reason my friends schedules open up when I have a beer ready. ;-)

David

^^^ racerdave - to the group and Cheers! Funny thing - my friends schedule seems to open up the second I get home with beer. Any beer. Lol. I think they have the guy at the beer store text them when I leave.

Again - welcome!!

Beer sales are declining from big breweries; however micro-breweries are on the rise as are sales from them. Seems like there is a switch from quantity to quality happening.
Sadly, I had to retire my home-brewing equipment when I was diagnosed with diabetes.

Sorry to hear that Ray. I bought a fixerupper RV. Turns out it's more of a fixer than an upper right now. I hardly have time to brew coffee. ..

RAY... you do not have to retire from home brewing ...simply add to your pals list. Find a group willing to work for beer. Hand out scrub brushes and point towards your rig.... then hand out the wax and get them started again.

Racer... Sam Adam's has some wonderful beers. I love the fact that they have a brew recipe contest each year and feature the winning formula as one of their specialty brews. I have selected some of the beers sold locally and small brewers like Boston Brewing as favotites when I am starving for a beer and just want a bottle.

Great Lakes Brewing Edmund Fitzgerald.
Four Peaks Brewing Kilt Lifter Scottish Ale.
Three Floyds Brewing Robert the Bruce Scottish Ale
Sam Adams Latitude 48 IPA
Brooklyn Brewing Pennant 55
Magic Hat #9

Here in Louisville KY and I am sure in other places...we get a great variety of beer samples in the wine beer and liquor stores.... so you can buy just a single bottle and try the beer to see if you like it. Then there are the beer tasting events.....where you go around with a 4 OZ mug and try as many as you like. Some of the dark brews have my fancy too.

We can buy singles here too. I think they have tastings at the liquor stores. We have a beer snobs club that has a monthly meeting to taste beers from everywhere. Some really good, and some are not so good. Others I like are:
Boulevard unfiltered wheat
Boulevard porter
Sante fe state pen porter
Green flash double stout

I'm a purist; Bocks are my favorite. (Texans will recognize Shiner Bock...my absolute first choice.) Currently sipping a ZiegenBock amber but will never turn down a Corona. When my hubby and I order drinks when we're out, he always orders a margarita and I order a beer. The servers will get them reversed every time without fail.

And stout...ick. Do not want.

I have a few favorites
Atwater's Vanilla Java Potter
New Holland's Dragons Milk
I also like the Craft packs from Sam Adams, Lienies and Yuengling's Black and Tan
when we travel we will go to the local liquor store and see what they have in local micro brews.
also check out the documentary called Beer Wars it came out in 2009.
have never had any "home" brew but do enjoy the micro breweries

Michelob Amber Bock, Dos Equis, Yuengling Amber, Guinness, Killians Red, Any Porter. You get the idea. No IPA, no "lite", Not hoppy.
