How does that compare with something like Guinness?

Guinness is water compared to any beer, but with FBS is is like drinking air

I'll have to try that, except it is expensive from what I've found. What's a decent-good beer you can find in most liquor/beer stores?

Speaking from my painfully obvious bias, I'd say the best beer you'd find in your average corner liquor store is a Sam.

you can find pilsener urquell most anywhere, i would give that the edge, but im from WI and you can find New Glarus in any gas station, that wins for me

Unfortunately for me, the only "gas station" beers I've seen so far are Budweiser, Miller, ect. Nothing special.

at every gas station within a 5 mile radius of my house you can buy some form of new glarus

Besides Sam Adams, what other Domestic brew would you all recommend that you could find at most gas stations/beer stores?

I rather like Westvleteren. The fact that it is not commercially brewed and difficult to obtain only makes it better.

Sometimes it's quite nice to live in Belgium...

it is about to be commercialized, i don't have the article right in front of me but a limited number of bottles will go out next year to a special distributor (can't recall the name)

I just found the big brother of Sam Adams Winter Lager:

It totally blew SA out of the water, made SA taste like water in comparison, similar flavor profiles too

Why did you have to change your name again from Jolly to cross or was it cross to jolly?

The way you describe this beer it sounds like orgasms of taste in your mouth.

just had old fezziweg ale and all I can say is go for Bell's Christmas ale instead, i am not a fan of either but they seemed similar with the bell's packing more of a punch.

So far the best winter beers I have had so far were Affligem Noel and Avery Old Jubilation

here is what is upcoming though:

I'm . . . not fond of beer to start with, so it takes me a while to find one I really like. That being said, I drink Molsons Canadian. it's not as watery or bitter as a lot of the American beers I've tried (maybe I'm drinking the wrong beers), and the one German beer I've had was far too malty for my tastes

They're two different styles so you other than the fact they're both dark beers, it's tough to really compare them.

Anyone beer watching Brew Masters on Discover Channel. Pretty entertaining show. As a homebrewer I wished they showed a little more on the brewing process. But I'm not surprised, Sam talking about mash temps and ph levels wouldn't be very interesting.

Picked up the Sam Adams Winter Variety pack, may break out a Chocolate Bock tonight.

Just out of curiosity, what is keeping you from branching out to other brands? Sam Adams makes a good beer and is a good brand to use as an introduction to craft beer. But you live in Michigan, one of probably the top 5 states for craft beer in the country. There's so many good breweries in the mitten, what's stopping you from patronizing them?

I'd love it if I could get Bell's, Founders and Short's (among others) at my grocery store. I've seen a couple of the MBC/Celis beers here in Texas, but that's it.
