    BB-Inversion_IPA.jpg

    Well I bought a 6 pack of Inversion IPA today (brewery is in Bend Oregon) and it's pretty good but I think I like the Supergoose IPA (Seattle Brewery)just a little bit better. Perhaps the Supergoose is a little hoppier and I actually find that to my liking (as regards that brand anyway). Problem with the Supergoose is that it only comes in the big single bottles where I shop and I don't necessarily always need to drink quite that much in one sitting.

    Tend to agree... swung by a tasting room for 1/2 pint yesterday... 2 bucks... single hop IPA, nice citrus aroma, 5.9 abv. Quenching.

    Tasting Room : Societe Brewing Company The Bachelor: Citra

    Best $2.00 I spent all day. Just stood there in the breeze of the outdoor patio, slowly sipping.

    Should you find yourself in Northern California, Fall River Brewing is excellent. They have a taproom in Redding. Hexagenia IPA and Widowmaker are in stores. The taproom always has a selection of good stuff.

    sierra nevada torpedo IPA.jpg

    Well I picked up a six pack of Sierra Nevada Torpedo Extra IPA today and found it to be a very good mellow IPA that I'd recommend to anyone who doesn't like their IPA too overly hoppy. This is also a beer from a bigger brewery that's likely to be pretty widely available. I'll probably buy it more often than the Inversion which is pretty hoppy. If I want something with more hop bite I'll stick with the bigger bottles of SuperGoose.

    I've always liked Sierra Nevada's pale ale about as good as anybody's as well, outside some home brew that I've tried.

    Beer is the reason I ride bicycles. I love many styles but have a fondness for lagers. The best beers around here are brewed by BBC (Berkshire Brewing Co.....Deerfield, MA). Steel Rail, Cabin Fever, Lost Sailor Pale ale...the list goes on.

    My folks live in western Mass. We always manage to pick up some BBC when we visit. Their Traditional Pale Ale is good too.

    I have to 2nd this one ... an outstanding IPA that's generally very available. Plus it comes in 16 oz cans which are good for trail heads after a nice mtn bike ride ....

    Yep. Dark and heavy. Love it. Had a Ballast Point Black Marlin Porter the other day. Fantastic!

    Least favorite are IPAs. Disgusting. Nothing but corrupted malt beverage. Pale Ales are fine, but IPAs are just hideous.

    You owe it to yourself to try Chimay. Liquid silk. Red label is the best.

    You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
    You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
    You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
    You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
    You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.

    Well here's another really tasty balanced IPA from the Sierra Nevada Brewery called "Flipside Red IPA". I like it at least as good as their Torpedo IPA. Perhaps a wee bit hoppier but not too much.

    Went down to the local Redhook brewery and had one of their experimental Pease Pilot specials, a red moderately hoppy nitro which reminded me of a stronger Boddingtons, and a really fantastic Widmer trial run black lager.
    I know next to nothing. I am frequently wrong.

    my current so cal fave brewery-alpine brewing in sd co-is in serious danger of ceding most favored drinking brewery status...

    Well, the hop knife is delicious. I also got a 4 pack of the Midas Touch from dogfishhead. Not terrible, but I mostly wanted to try it after reading about how the recipe was constructed.

    The sad thing about this thread is that there are so many local microbrews that don't bottle or distribute out of a particular area... Heck I can think of 6 or 8 locally that offer ales that none of you would ever have the chance to taste, yet these can be quite interesting.

    I saw a "Modern Marvels" show the other day that talked about brewing in America... the show emphasized that Anheuser Busch was still the largest brewer in America, followed by Miller, then Coors, then some other more localized volume brewers... encompassing some 98% of all the beer in America.

    The show also noted a surge in local microbrews, (and a resurgence in good tasting beer) but also indicated that these microbrews were barely a drop in the barrel when compared to AB et. al.. Yet, if you truly want a good brew, you no doubt steer away from the volume brewers.

    Locally, I have available:
    Stone Stone Brewing Co.
    Green Flash Green Flash Brewing Company
    Ballast Point Ballast Point
    Rough Draft Rough Draft Brewing Company San Diego, CA
    Societe Societe Brewing Company
    Coronado Coronado Brewing Company

    And these are just the larger microbrews... the ones that actually bottle and distribute.
    There are quite a few more that just brew, keg and deliver to local pubs and restaurants. Stuff you would never taste unless you went to a local tasting room or pub or eatery.

    Alpine Brewing company Alpine Beer Company: Drink Alpine beer or go to bed!
    Alesmith AleSmith Brewing Company
    Mike Hess Hess Brewing
    Helms Brewing Helm's Brewing Co.
    Modern Times http://moderntimesbeer.com/
    And many more... these are all "small operations" about 3-4 2 car garage sized sized shops.

    And then there was (note, I said "was"):
    Wet and Reckless Wet n Reckless Brewing ? San Diego, Mira Mesa just about 1 garaged size of an operation. It burned down a few weeks ago. Fire destroys Wet ?N Reckless Brewing | San Diego Reader

    wetnreckless_01_t658.JPG

    As you can see, Wet and Reckless was something of a spartan operation... but yet another growler fill resource of interesting ales. Too bad they were just a bit reckless.

    So with just a few of these locals in mind... really, how can we honestly "talk beer," when odds are, you'll never taste that which exists locally...
