Friday once again and no real beer general!

Just finished a 700 ml bottle of this /memebeer/ - the brewery collaborated with the creators of a webcomic series depicting events from Czech history using dolanified language.

It's a Rauchweizen so the fact that I hate grodziskies should have caused me to reconsider the purchase, but it wasn't that disasterous after all.

My friend brought a case of Michelob Amberbock and I had to pretend I wasn't immediately disappointed that I'd be drinking a shitty beer. To my snobby surprise this is actually fucking delicious and goes down super smooth. It might be one of my favorite dark beers.

Why is Anheuser-Busch making Michelob seem like shitty brand of beer by over marketing the godawful Michelob Ultra? Is this some elaborate joke that they only produce pisswater except for one brand of beer that they barely market? I don't understand.

A place near me does a pretty solid rum barrel aged imperial stout. Indeed's Rum King. If you can ever somehow get it, give it a shot. Not boozy, and the rum adds quite a bit to the stout.
Another place around me ages one of their signature beers in aquavit barrels and it's excellent. No chance of getting that anywhere but that brewery though.

Newbies should start with a Blonde ale, if you're not used to thick heavy drinks you might be turned off at first by full bodied beers.

After that try a Wheat Beer, they're creamy and a good one will have citrus notes. Just fun stuff to drink.

Remember to experiment, don't be a boring drinker who sticks with one beer and never tries anything out. When you're in a bar ask the Bartender if there's any specials, they often reduce the prices on certain beers because a Keg is starting to get old and they want to move product.

When you have money to spend try imports, I've never been disappointed by Belgian beer. If it's a beer that's been around for 100+ years there's something special to it.

Light beer is for alcoholics who just want to keep drinking something/anything, don't waste your time with that shit unless maybe you're doing a leisure activity like Golfing or hanging out at the beach. I personally say avoid diet shit and just drink Beer and Water.

Most of all don't try to fool yourself into liking a style of beer because while there can be "acquired tastes" beer I've found is more direct of a beverage than Wine or Whiskey. I've had numerous IPAs and I can barely stomach that shit. I have friends though who swear by Stone IPAs, your mileage may very.

Drink responsibly and have fun. If you're a normal adult you're going to go on benders and throw up lots of booze, do yourself a favor and stay hydrated, when I drink a lot I have a glass of water to my left and my alcohol to the right. Hangovers fucking suck and it's because people don't stay hydrated.

Rum king is great. I had a different rum barrel stout when I was on vacation in Maine, but it wasn't quite as good; its rum barrel was lacking in prominence.

Find a favourite cheap beer. Microbrews and specialty beers are amazing, but can be overwhelming. Find something under 5% that you don't mind drinking, something you can drink to get drunk, or just have while doing yardwork. You want to be able to get a light all-day buzz while tasting almost like nothing, and not loading down your stomach.Got that? Keep a 30 somewhere, and move on to the real stuff.

Try to find a bottle shop that offers mix-a-six's. Not every state has them, just ask. Grab six different beers. Try one or two each night, then switch to your cheap-o. At that point you'll probably like everything from cognac to pruno until you build up a tolerance, so just pound the swill and have a good night. Repeat until you find a style and brewery you love.

Warsteiner is the Bud Light of Germany

It's also not even Bavarian
>>
>>7028379
Bud light is the perfect beer in the sense that it has no taste, goes down easy, and gets you fucked up.

Other than that, though, this is my go to. It's cheap and tastes pretty good imo.

>gets you fucked up

Does it though? Is it not like 3.2% or something? I bought a 6 pack of it here in the UK for novelty value and it had very little effect.

Is it stronger in the States?
>>
>>7035327
I believe it's 4.2 here, but I've never had one so idk.
>>
>>7033441

Where are you finding the Foreign Extra stuff for that price?

I really like it, it is infinitely better than the standard stuff. Last I saw it was £1.50 or so in Asda.
>>
>>7035332

The standard stuff we get here is 4.2 I think. It really isn't that great, if you want a cheap shitty beer that doesn't taste of much and goes down well when cold then Coors Light is the best I reckon.

Back to good beer...

My local Aldi is selling Orkney Blast. It is absolutely brilliant, recommended.
>>
>>7035265
if I wanted to get fucked up with something that has no taste, I'd take shots of vodka

>>7034745
Green flash has indeed bought out alpine and some have noticed the beers tasting different since they are brewing at green flash now and using their water source. I think it's great new because all it means is more alpine for everyone. Six packs coming soon.
>>
>>7035359

I would rather drink pisswater than shot straight vodka. That sounds horrible.
>>
>>7035274
Exactly my thought.
>>
Someone recommend me a nice coffee beer thats relatively widely available
>>
>>7035929
Throw it in the freezer for a few hours and itll go down like water
>>
>>7035998

Does that actually work?

Tempted to try, I tend to avoid vodka because I don't like it straight and I don't like soda so mixing isn't really an option
>>
>>7036019

Of course. Lowering the temperature of a volatile liquid lowers its vapor pressure. That means you can't taste the alcohol as much compared to room temperature.
>>
>>7036031

Interesting, I always thought it was an urban legend.

Thanks mate. I assume the vodka has to be reasonably decent and not the bottom shelf own brand shit?
>>
>>7036035
Just get some Russian standard or luksusowa. Both are great and inexpensive
>>
>>7033441
>>7035333
Can confirm; The cheapest I've seen it is £6 for 4 at asda
>>
>>7035251
I'll have to try it. I've only had bits and pieces of what indeed has to offer.
>>
>>7035327
4.2 by volume in the states, but i have heard that the uk might do by weight?
>>
>>7028560
>I've had numerous IPAs and I can barely stomach that shit.

Maybe you should steer clear of American copies of pale ales altogether?

They're overhopped in general and rarely a patch on the original.

I'm not big on their hoppy stuff, but most of their other offerings are great. Hot Box is a personal favorite and they just released this year's batch so try that if you haven't. Also Old Friend is a good one. LSD is one I have yet to try
>>
>>7037067
I love bitterness (note that hops are used for both flavour and aroma). But Americans pale ales are overhopped. It's their trademark. Matter of fact, most American 'craft' beers I've tried lack balance and subtlety and go straight for massive doses of hops.
A proper IPA has both bittering and aromatic hops, but you should also be able to taste alcohol, malt and yeast. American Pale ales seem to have nothing but massive hops flavour that drowns out many other flavours.

YMMV.

Founder's Breakfast Stout is the shit tho. Just more oats and chocolate. VaS just has a shitton more coffee flavor, with a mild vanilla aftertaste.

Epic Big Bag Baptist was FUCKING INCREDIBLE. This is immediately one of my favorite beers. I'm going to go pick up a few more as soon as I can. Seriously, highly highly fucking recommended, this beer is amazing.

Pic related for me. I've liked everything I've tried from this brewery, and while this seems to be the most simple brew from them, it's still pretty damn tasty. Standard schwarzbier really, but has an nice alcohol bite on the finish. Not taste wise, but warming in the back of the throat. It's kind of strange since it's only 5% abv.. Would by again though. Extremely smooth and tasty.
>>

Also opened one of these guys. I have two left from a 6 pack I got as a gift a few months ago. Really not the hugest fan at first, but this one is tasting pretty damn good. Wouldn't buy a pack myself. Better local stouts around I think for the same price or cheaper.

let me know how it is. i would like to do my own mix rather than from a package, but i would also like to know how a kit might fare with ones own ingredients

So I live in a pretty hick part of america and this Indian gas station here stock these craft beers (I'm talking hundreds of brands) I want to try some but don't know which ones to try.

Fucking Japan. Damn near impossible to find good beer here.
>>
>>7050082
Kits get you about 80% of the way there with about 10% of the effort. You can also mix them up a bit by steeping grains whose flavor profile you want to accent and adding them to your kit pseudo-wort, or adding hops either by way of a tea or dry-hopping. Plus all of the parts that comprise your starter kit will serve a purpose if/when you step it up and go extract/all grain.

Basically get a starter kit, make it according to the instructions, try a few more kits throwing grains/hops in as you see fit, then take it from there.

I brew my own, nothing to laugh at there. It would be hard to justify the money for something you find out you don't like

>>7050082
if you have the money or feel reasonably sure that you will enjoy it, you can get a kit like pic related and brew some pretty top notch beer. The equipment in there is basically what I use, but I also have cooled/heated fermentation space (a chest freezer with a light bulb and temp controller) and a kegerator which also improves the results.

The biggest improvements that I have been able to notice from working up to the equipment that I have is:
-Much better clarity and less off flavor from the secondary fermenter being used
-Ability to target flavors from the yeast by controlling for temperature (also if making sours you can ramp up the temp to sour more quickly)
-Better/more consistent carbonation and a lot less work form kegging

Out of the whole process I would say that bottling is the hardest part, but it is also the most expensive hurdle to overcome. Do yourself a favor and bottle in the largest bottles that you find useful (750ml, 22oz bombers, etc) and it will save you a lot of time and work.

Using Star San from Five Star Chemical will also save you a lot of time.

Let me know if you have any questions, i'd love to answer them for you
>>
>>7050159
I think by kits they mean the smaller cheaper kits, but i'm not sure. My guess is that they want to do their own recipes, which if you are still using extracts is not hard at all. I still brew extracts because I dont really have the space for an all grain setup, but i'd say my beer is pretty damn good. The only problem I have is the color comes out a bit dark, but i'm finding ways to get around that.

>>7027865
I bought a sample case of Great Divide. Everything in it is over 7%.

Orabelle is so delicious.

I might switch to "He Said" a pumpkin tripel which is a collab between 21st Amendment and Elysian.

I also bought a case of Founder's Breakfast Stout. The possibilities are endless as I preload Fallout 4 and binge Halt and Catch Fire.

Im pretty new to beer and had this yesterday. I drank it with some SN Oktoberfest (wanted side by side comparison for some reason) and it didnt turn out so well. Maybe its because im new, maybe its because i was drinking a very fresh beer with it, but it had something horribly off about it. It tasted of some dark malty sweetness with wine-like dark fruitiness. Where it went wrong was at the end it had this taste that i cant pinpoint, but it kind of reminded me of age (in a bad way, like a spoiled old wine or something).

So i got a couple questions. First, do you guys know of the taste im talking about? Is it possible it was a bad batch? Secondly, is this a belgian thing? Are english brown ales and bocks etc more just malty less winey flavors? It was quite destestable, so i cant help but think it was an off-flavor from a bad batch, but i only got a single so i cant know.
>>
>>7060820
There's a lot of different tastes.
I'm also pretty new to beer, living in Belgium, and been tasting one or 2 every week for the past few months.
Some beers I really enjoy, even though I can't put into words -why-; it's kinda confusing because I used to think most beers tasted more or less the same. Now I try a new one, and while I can tell it tastes somewhat like one I like a lot, I can still hate the taste. It's a very subtle yet strong difference at the same time.
I started with light white/blonde beers. Tried a darker one, didn't like it, and stuck with blonde for a while longer. A few weeks ago I tried a very heavy darker beer (>>7060666), and really enjoyed it. I don't think I would've liked it half a year ago.
>>
>>7060820
Can't say I know what you're talking about since I haven't ever had Leffe anything. That being said, belgian beer has a completely different taste than American beer. It's usually a yeast thing, I think. I don't drink many imports with the amount of variety we have in the states though so I don't really know.

Yeah this guy does have some booziness for the ABV. Not all that much rum flavor, but like the Apple Brandy Noir it did feel extra chocolatey possibly due to the barrel choice.

Green Flash quality has been declining hard over the last few years.. Alpine Hoppy Birthday is so underwhelming now that it's a totally different recipe. Duet and Nelson are fine, but I'm still disappointed with both now compared to how they were earlier. Have yet to try Pure Hoppiness.

I'm gonna second Breakfast Stout and Victory at Sea. Victory at Sea has more coffee flavor however so I'd say get that one over the other if you have to.
>>7040425
This was good, but there was too much bottle variation. My bottle had next to no doughnut flavor, but on draft it tasted/smelled just like doughnuts. Same shit happens for me with peanut butter beer. Nukin Futs on tap = amazing. Nukin Futs in bottle = pretty alright. Karl Strauss PB was also great on tap..Not sure I'll take a chance on a bottle however.

Phantom breweries that make too many beers and don't seem to have enough QC going on... not really worth. Same goes for Evil Twin. I did really fucking like the Mikkeller/3 Floyds Blueberry "Lambic" though. The oatmeal stouts from Mikkell are also pretty good, but pricey.

Had this one before once and just had to find it again, got a couple of bottles and felt like having one right now.
Probably one of the best stouts brewed with adjuncts ever made! If you like sweet stouts that is!

I've always found the stuff outside of their core range to be really hit and miss.

This was mine tonight. Don't think I've had a bad beer from The Kernel. Probably should have let the yeast in this settle a bit more before I poured it.

Very experimental at times yeah, the misses i have tried so far has mostly been just bland beers that seemed to lack the little extra they advertised as being there!

Actually got one of those to drink tonight, the bourbon baby!

Pic related is not a holiday beer, but a pretty decent IPA no matter what the label says!

I jelly.

You're from Sweden right? Do they sell that at Systembolaget?
>>
>>7071426
Yeah that is right. They got them on the seasonal Christmas holiday line, had forgotten all about the christmas beers so i was surprised to see this one one the shelves! Very good offering from them!

Loved these stouts. Wished I had gone to their brewery during GABF.

>I think it's great new because all it means is more alpine for everyone
exactly. people think a brewery being bought out is the worst thing when in reality its a good thing, it gives them more distro.

I'm slowly getting into more pils. Pick Six isn't the best pils from the west coast but this one is decent.

>Essentially an "Imperial Rübæus," this ale contains four times the amount of raspberries as Rübæus and is fermented with a Belgian yeast strain.
Holy shit, that sounds fucking awesome because Rübæus and lambics are both godly

Already drank it.
Had the blue Chimay yesterday, very tasty indeed.

Had this the other day. One of my favorite brews from lift bridge. Not overly sweet, and pretty much exactly how you'd expect it to taste. Always tempted to have it for breakfast desu
>>
>>7073389
I like stouts, but any products (food, drink, or other) with the word "irish" in the name is instantly garbage in my eyes.
>>
>>7073406
I know how you feel. I was hesitant the first time I tried it, but man its good.

That's pretty much how I'd describe leffe brun. I hated it when I first had it a couple of years ago, could barely finish the bottle, but then I tried it again a couple of weeks ago and it's pretty much how I remember. It is partly a belgian thing, but I'd say leffe brun is a particularly bad example

I note that you let the yeast settle; isn't it meant to be cloudy?

I had that shit at Thanksgiving 2014. Disgustingly sweet IMO.

George Killian's Irish Red here. Not too bad considering how inexpensive it is.

Hey guys, NJ fag who just moved to quebec here, and now I'm starting to get into beer

>glorious drinking age of 18

I've tried most of the standard Quebecois brews like St. Ambroise and Unibrou and I'm looking to try something new and expand out a little. I've heard that Charlevoix is very good, but I haven't tried it yet.

Does anyone have any Canadian recommendations, specifically for IPAs, pale ales, blondes, and wheat beers?

Also, is Delirium Tremors worth it, or should I save my money?

Now drinking this, one of the best Belgian strong ales I've ever tasted. I love fall/winter in Ontario, it's the only time you can get truly good beer like Belgian/Imperial stouts/Dubbels, and Unibroue is one of the best brewers I've ever tasted.

Finished a four pack of Brooklyn Blast. Now working on a bottle of saumur rouge in honor of France

This was the beer that taught me I liked beer.

I had no real awareness of craft beer really being different from rice pilsner mass garbage, which was all I'd had, so I never bothered. One day, someone convinced me to try this, and I actually liked it.

Funny how now I would probably never drink it. My understanding of beer and standards for taste have grown immensely since then. Still, for opening me up, it's a very important beer to me.

Boy is your coming-of-age going to be awesome.

Go visit Stone. Try everything they've got until you find your style preference.

Sam Adam's Sparkling Ale

Really weird. It's almost completely forgettable in every way, nothing bad and nothing good. It's kind of like a more palatable version of what, say, Miller is trying to be.

That said, paired very well with cajun seared tuna with how light and crisp it is.
>>
>>7030240
God, that shit is amazing. The local video game bar down the street has it on tap; at least until they inevitably run out.

Get it every time I visit if they have it in stock. Easily on the top tier of beers I've ever had. Goes really well with Frogger and Punch-Out!!

Yeah, but not usually stand alone. They're pretty common as part of a hotel or restaurant.

>>7052955
I was not a big fan.

>>7060820
I think Leffe is okay, but I'll completely agree it's downfall is the aftertaste.
>>
>>7074745
Holiday Porter, Chocolate Bock, and Old Fezzewig are actually delicious, and the christmas pack is $11 when it's on sale.

No regrets whatsoever.

It's a beautiful day here in Western Australia, so I got some local beers to match the weather. Lovely stuff.
