i've never tried the amber, but abita bock is a really amazing beer. actually, everything i've ever had by abita has been pretty impressive. even the purple haze is pretty good, despite the fact that every other raspberry beer i've tried has been barf-tastic. you're lucky to live so close! there are only a few places i know of around here that sell it.

I've actually only been there once which is kinda sad. biggrin.gif

Truth be told though I don't drink beer that much, I'm more of a wine drinker actually. Love red wine.

I enjoy Heineken, Fat Tire, Avalanche and Coors Light. I also love having a good black and tan (usually with Guinness and Bass)

mmm....

In fact, I'm enjoying an ice cold coors light as I type this!

Thank you TeeMan for the awesome sig!

Unfortunately, variety is lacking down here and most of its domestic.. the non-domestic stuff is only the big name non-domestic stuff. Nothing like good local brewery or regional stuff. Budweiser (the s***ty American stuff) and Natty Light reigns down here heavily, redneck beers for a redneck population.

As for me, usuals are Sam Adams, Amber Boch, Dos Equis, Bass, Guinness, and Smithwicks.
If some bored artist wants to make me a signature, feel free to cut loose and do so.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.

In no particular order:

Pilsner Uquarell, Murphy's Irish Stout, Leinenkugel brews, Stella, Spaten/Spaten Oktoberfest, New Glarus brews, Moretti, Newcastle, Boddington, & probably a few others that I can't think of.

When i was younger I grew up on the popular crap like bud, miller, and corona. Don't really party anymore and need that easy water tasting stuff to drink easily on drinking games. I've started drinking red seal. Any suggestions on similar tasting beers?

really?
i bought a six of their sunset wheat yesterday, though, and it's not too shabby. i've been super disappointed by leinenkugel almost all across the board otherwise, though. and they also hold the title in my book for worst beer ever: their raspberry hefeweizen tastes like punishment.

Hoegaarden is good for sure. You ever put some citrus in it? I like it w/ food in the summer. That's some tasty refreshment!

Ooo, I've missed a good beer discussion.


First, on a sidenote, I want to write down some of these suggestions and find a good place to buy a few of them. I love trying a new brew.


Now, honestly, I love all beers. IPA, Stout, Bock, Amber, Oh God, I'm drooling. I love microbrews because they have more flavor than the regular stuff (Budweiser, Miller, PBR, etc.). I will still drink the regular stuff, if it's on special or if I'm tailgating. In that case it's usually a PBR.

For some good stuff I like me some Bells. Nothing feels more like summer than drinking an Oberon, barbequing and watching the Tigers game. I also enjoy a nice pint of Guinness. It almost feels like I'm drinking milk - I should probably try dunking an oreo in a Guinness sometime, I bet it would be delicious.
And I wonder
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again

Here is a list of good raspberry ales (IMO):

Dark Horse Raspberry Ale
Founders Rubeaus
Abita Raspberry Cheesecake
Shorts Soft Parade (actually has raspberrys, strawberrys, blueberrys, blackberrys)
Founders Blushing Monk (thisf****** raspberry Belgian is 12% and will put you on your ass)

I've put up reviews of most of these on ratebeer.com

Here's a link to my reviews: http://www.ratebeer....-User-44984.htm

I work at a bar (Brannigan Brothers in Lansing) with over 200 micros so I taste a new micro almost every week. We focus on Michigan beers, although we have beers from as far away as Sri Lanka.

OK, I grew up in Lansing. I spent 3 years at MSU drinking in EL/Lansing. Where the hell is Brannigan Brothers and why didn't I know about it when I was in school?

The Abita Purple Haze is good beer. If you drink it while eating some sweeter, it really brings out the raspberry taste. Last time I tried this we had salmon with some kind of honey glaze on it. Worked like a charm,

I've got a sixer of St. Arnolds Brown Ale sitting in the fridge. I need a couple tonight after a long week.

The demon code prevents me from declining a rock-off challenge.

Because BB was crap until one of my good friends took over as general manager. He's the one responsible for bringing in all the good beer and liquor and he has only been there for 2 years.

The place itself is maybe 7-8 years old. Right on Washington Square downtown.

I know where it is now. I left Lansing about 3 years ago, which would explain why I didn't know about it. Usually if we went drinking downtown it would be either The Nuthouse, Rum Rummers or (ugh) 621. I'll have to give it a try next time I'm home.

wow! i go to a bar that has beer from all over the world, including a lot of micros. i'll have to ask about some of those. especially the blushing monk! though i gotta tell you, i think i'm gonna stay away far away from any beer intended to taste like raspberry cheesecake.

it seems so easy to f up fruit beer and make something that tastes like cough syrup, fruit punch, or (in the case of leinenkugel berry weiss) cheap church wine. not to mention i'm not usually much for lagers or hefeweisens, so i just usually pass anyway in favour of a nice dark stout or porter. tongue.gif

also you have brought to my attention that i really need to make a ratebeer.com profile. hehe...

My brother just got me drinking Sea Dog Blueberry Ale. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!! For anyone who likes beer, and who also likes the flavor of blueberries, it's a must have. I don't know how widespread it is - it's a microbrew from Maine and I'd never heard of Sea Dog outside of New England.

this reminds me: for all the metro detroiters, merchant's wine and spirits on michigan avenue in dearborn is a good place to look for this, and pretty much any other hard to find beer. they have a really good section of new england beers too. it's the only place (outside of the northeastern us) that i can get harpoon munich dark from, and i think i've seen sea dog there too. not to mention the huge selection of international beers (my grandpa buys zywiec porter from poland there!)

they also have a ton of different wines, meades, and liquors. the staff is (usually) super knowledgable. and it's a hell of a lot cheaper than going to a bar and buying the stuff.
