3 chugs!!! I'm not taking lessons from you
Honestly though, I'm going to brew something and all the info out there is blowing my mind. There are so many ways to brew a beer.
Teein' Off on Links
Im gonna let this one sit for 3 more weeks. Think I might have opened it a little to soon.
Two of these have me feeling alright though. Has a nice creep to it. Is it against hop law to change a rating?
Of course not.
I think the last Belgian I had was Lucifer. This is no Lucifer by any means but the carryover taste in my mouth is very similar. Two pints and im good. We didn't get to test this one out on abv but im going to guess and throw it around 7-7.5? Not going to change the grade yet, otherwise it would be the beer talking. Fair grades are fair. Its better than simcoe.
Ratings for Double Simcoe IPA; American Double / Imperial IPA style beer brewed by Weyerbacher Brewing Co. in Easton, PA. 92 out of 100 with 1906 BeerAdvocate opinions.
Yep. How that is rated that high is beyond me.
I drank that beer one time. The night I got my DUI. that beer.
Nasty nasty beer. I've always wondered how that's rated high
Maybe you got a bad batch. It happens. I remember it being a decent beer.
I knew there was nothing good with this beer.
Noice! I'll take it easy on you tonight dookie.
If you haven't tried Duvel I would give that a go... great Belgian
Maybe this has been covred already (42 pages, i don't have time to read those), but Thundered out of Kearney is my favorite non-Keystone beer. Peach wheat, when they have it, is the best.
Headed to the world of beer. Pretty pumped.
A lack of transportation limited me but I made it to the brickhouse tavern and tap. Started out with a stone arrogant bastard ale on tap. Next up was a couple bottles of dogfish head 60 minute ipa. Both were really good, I'd go five out of five chugs for the stone and 4.5 for the DFH. I'll try to make it to millers in the next couple nights, thank you for the suggestion!
Millers and Howl are one the same block. Easy to hit up both. It's a fun area. Like 5 or 6 bars in that area.
Have a fun trip
Ft Collins double chocolate stout is severely underrated. A personal favorite.
If you enjoy a rich thick and semi sweet chocolate stout then hunt this one down. I was blown away how poor the BA rating was. I would rate it a 90 or 92. Very enjoyable stout.

Thats funny dude. Remember my number one beer? Hc Berger Chocolate Stout. Well when Hc Berger was shut down they reopened under ft. Collins brewery. Probably the same recipe.
I am a big big fan.
I've never had this kind of love for a beer with an 83 rating. I don't get how they messed up this bad.
AHHHHHHHHH!!! [BOOYAH] Thank you so much!
Sorry it took me so long to notice -- I had to go on a trip for work, so I haven't been on since I got the badge.
Man, top 5 is tough! I've never really thought about it. Keep in mind, I haven't been very adventurous with my beer drinking for a long time, so this is subject to dramatic change over the coming weeks, months, and years. It's mostly stuff I've had a lot of. Also, any suggestions would be much appreciated.
5. Tecate - Have to give some love to cheap beers, and this is probably my favorite one. Cold Tecate + street tacos = happy Mike
4. Two Hearted (Bell's) - I'm always pumped when I see Two Hearted on tap. Definitely one of my go-tos
3. Abt 12 (St. Bernardus) - This is the lone beer on the list that I haven't had dozens of times. It's a heavy hitter, and I love it. I should probably wait for a few more tastings to put it on my list, but, what the hell -- I'm being adventurous.
2. A Little Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale (Lagunitas) - Now, if you asked me: "Mike, what is the second most delicious beer you've ever tasted?", would I respond "SUMPIN'!"? No way. But this is the first beer that made me start thinking about beer in a serious way. I think it's an accessible intro to more interesting beers -- rather, it was *my* accessible intro to more interesting beers; therefore, it holds a special place in my heart. (It also deserves some love because my mention of it prompted bobross (I believe) to direct me to the greatest thread on 247 (here).)
1. Pilsner Urquell - I know this is anti-climactic, but there have to be a couple hold-overs from my previous life. Here's my logic: there are times that Tecate, Two Hearted, Abt 12, or Sumpin' just don't sound that delicious. There is never a time, if offered a Pils Urquell, that I'd say, "Nah, that doesn't sound good right now." Therefore, for consistency's sake, I'm crowning Pilsner Urquell -- the proverbial race-winning tortoise on my list of beers -- the champion.
I'm looking for any and all suggestions, but I feel particularly ashamed that I couldn't come up with a specific stout to crack the top 5, as I love stouts. I'm a little picky, though. Nothing bothers me more than a fizzy stout. I like my stouts like I like my R&B: smooth as . Ideas?

I'm so glad to see you have Bernardis Abt 12 in your top 5. I think I had it as one of my honorable mentions. So basically top 7 haha
Upvote for you mike! Out if those I've only tried the bells, but never on tap. Solid from a bottle nonetheless. I'm not sure where you're at but if you can find founders breakfast stout I'd give that a try. Another one that's less common but quite delicious is New Belgium imperial coffee chocolate stout. I'm not that big into stouts but I love both of these. Good luck!
