Not sure where this thread should go, but DH and I enjoy trying new beers. What are your favorite brews?
I am enjoying a Lost Rhino Brewing Company Face Plant IPA right now. My favorite beer would have to be Cottonwood Pumpkin Ale, and I can’t wait until it is available again in the fall.

I love beer! Definitely my drink of choice!
darker-Lost Coast Downtown Brown (we had a keg of this at our wedding, yum!)
just plain delicious-Maui Brewing Co. CoCoNut Porter. (I hate that it’s like $12 for a 4-pack of cans at BevMo)
I am not enjoying anything currently, because I’m knocked up. But I will most definitely return to this thread in about 8 months to add some new beers to my tasting wishlist.

@NCSUchick27: Also a beer drinker here! For a good summery brew, Thomas Hooker Brewery Watermelon is tasty.

@leenh78: I will have to look for that one. 21st Amendment Brewery has a watermelon beer called Hell or High Watermelon that is pretty good.

@NCSUchick27: If you like Blue Moon or Tucher, try out Julius Echter Hefe-Weissbier Dunkel. It’s a dark wheat beer.

I love beer, drinking might be my only hobby. Elysian Green Peppercorn Saison is a beer I had recently that I just cannot get out of my head. Stone Arrogant Bastard is my everyday drinking beer.

I used to try new beers all the time when DH was drinking but he stopped over a year ago and I’ve become a lot less adventurous.
Most of my favorites are local to New England: Allagash White & Shipyard Pumpkinhead Ale are both from Maine. Another favorite, Wachusett Country Ale is actually brewed about 10 minutes from me. Very convenient for growler fills. 🙂

Mmm! I love beer! FI and I are having our reception at a microbrewery (Schlafly) – we’ll have 10 different beers on tap and I’m so freaking excited! I’m actually terrible and remembering beer names that I like (unless I instagram them, ha!), though, so that makes me the worst beer person ever. One of my favorites I’ve had in a while, though, is Lagunitas’ Wilco Tango Foxtrot. Just good, easy drinking. I’m bummed I didn’t buy more when it was out. I tend to like malty, darker (but not dark!) beers – I love oktoberfest brews the most. I also love basically every Schlafly beer – I’m a local girl at heart.
I was actually just at a local resturant with FI – they brew some of their own beers (but they are not a microbrew – they just will brew some in the basement and then pour it) – they had a hibiscus wheat and it was SO freaking good. I love hibiscus, but tend to hate wheat beers, but it was so delicious. And pink, which was fun.
Has anyone had the Southern Tier Creme Brulee Milk Stout? I have one in my fridge now – I’m scared to try it for some reason (it sounds good…but also weird….)

I really enjoy trying different craft beers, but have had to take a break while adjusting to antidepressants. I’ve had a drink or two this week and it seems to be going much better than when I first started meds, so hopefully I can resume my hobby soon. My favorite bar has 52 craft beers on tap and they rotate them for every season. Some of my favorites are:
Left Hand milk stout and Left Hand nitro milk stout
Left Hand good juju
Lift Bridge farm girl saison
Lake Front Oktoberfest
and Duchesse de Bourgogne which is a sour and tastes like nothing else I’ve ever tasted. It’s a bit like getting kicked in the mouth, it’s so intense, but it is really good. Just don’t drink it with food.

My all time fave is Dogfish Head Raison de Etre
