Sam Adams winter sampler was quite enjoyable. Have to say the chocolate bock was not for me but the rest...mmmmmmmm

Sounds like my kind of beer. I just finished up a 6 pack of McSorley's Black Irish Lager. Delicious!

This has probably been discussed already, but I'm fairly new to this thread. Has anyone watched Beer Wars? It's essentially about the battle that smaller breweries - specifically Sam Adams and Dogfish Head, but there are others involved (like Yuengling) - are left to fight against the giants at Budweiser, Miller, and Busch. Pretty good watch.

I don't remember McSorley's being anything memorable. It comes from the oldest pub in NYC. They serve beers by the twos - overfoamy small mugs. Then again, I haven't been there since college 15 or 16 years ago, when the bartender told my Dominican friend to get off the pay phone because they didn't want any more of his kind there. They also didn't allow women until 1970 when the law made them do it.

I have begged a few friends to ship me one of those mini kegs of HopSlam. It may work out. I can't get Michigan beers down here.

Well, I've mentioned I'm a dark beer kind of guy - so it wasn't freak-out worthy or anything, but it was very enjoyable. That really sucks to hear, though, on all accounts. =/

Yeah, I've seen it. Its a real eye opener as to how much the big 3 of beer will fight to keep the little guys out of the market. This article I found interesting regarding Chicago's beer politics, this kind of thing probably happens in every major city. http://www.chicagobusiness.com/article/20101120/ISSUE01/311209986/pay-to-play-infects-chicago-beer-market-crains-investigation-finds#axzz1AWIZZlIB

All I have to say is, your product should stand on its own. If you have to use shady politics and what amounts to as bribes for bars to exclusively stock your beer, the beer probably just sucks.

Can't wait for Hopslam to drop!!! Any day now...

Even though its expensive, and I'm broke these days, I can never resist picking up at least a sixer when it comes out each year. Just too delicious not to.

Review for SA Scotch Ale -

Poured into a Samuel Adams perfect pint glass

A: Poured a deep, dark ruby red. Appearing was a two finger width head which lingered, and left behind a good amount of lacing.

S: Scents of roasted malts, with hoppy and caramel undertones. Subtle earthy notes also detected.

T: As with the scent, roasted malt with caramel and earthy undertones. Hoppy with a bit of smokiness. Very well balanced with a bit of a bitter aftertaste.

M: Full bodied and rich with a good amount of carbonation.

D: Very nice. Just around a session beer.

Doesn't matter how much I drink it, nothing quite delivers like Mr. Killian's Irish Red. It is like angel's urine. If they had bladder infection because that is some red piss. Oh well, you get my drift.

Guess who's got Bell's Hopslam.

<-- This guy :thumbup: :beerbuddy:

Word, son. I grabbed a sixer today too!

I walked back to the beer section at the store I stopped at, and they literally had a wall about 6 feet high and six feet wide of Hopslam stacked up. I could see a halo around it shining like an angel. What a glorious sight!!!

Drink up while its fresh my friends!
