Ok, I didn't think so. That's still a nice night, though.

Back to my non-microbrew tastings... for moving day tomorrow, I picked up a Pyramid winter variety back and Noche Bella. The Pyramid has the traditionally Heffe (always one that I liked), oatmeal stout, chai wheat, and what they call Snow Cap. Had the Chai Wheat and Snow Cap. Both were pretty decent beers (again, in relation to being a Pyramid, not compared to traditional micro-brews).

The Noche Bella is probably the next one I try... it is a Mexican Christmas beer. I'm not expecting much, but I had to try it.

It's a stupid thing to argue and even try to crown a "best place to get craft beer."


There is really no point to argue on this.


Forgive me having a discussion on a message board.

In that case, stop. There is stuff that several other cities can get that Philly can't get. It's a moot arguing point. I'm glad that you enjoy the craft beer that Philly can get, but it isn't a king; there is no clear winner.

If I were to vote anywhere to get some of the best craft beer, it'd be Colorado. They get some of the best craft beer shipped to them (both west coast and east coast) and already have some of the best breweries.

Wow, relax. He stated his opinion and you questioned it. He gave reasons to back his opinion. You're the one who seems to want to make a pissing match out of it, or just be argumentative.

Tried this over the weekend, I loved it and I'm not really a big fan of Sam's

Over the past weekend, tried 5 Golden Rings from The Bruery. A total change from my favorite IPA's. Great flavor of malt and spices with just enough sour to keep it interesting. Label says it's okay to age up to 7 years.

As a special find while cleaning out a closet of old clothes, tucked in a shirt box was a lone bottle from 2004 of Samichlaus. I know they only brew this beer one day a year and it is hard to find. Not sure why it was in a box or how it would even taste after this many years. I recall having this beer along time ago and recall that it was mean, nasty, and all good at the same time. Gonna do some research on this one.

Gingerbread Stout. Tried this on tap last night. Definitely a dessert beer and I don't think I could drink more than one, but I did enjoy it,

Pittsburgh beer geeks, keep your eyes peeled from offerings from Uinta. This Utah brewery is pretty solid. Their hop notch IPA is good. Not the citrusy west coast style but a very balanced hop/malt combination with the right punch. Their barley wine is pretty delicious and I don't even like barley wines. Up til recently I've only seen their stuff on draft but bottles are finally filtering in.

Uinta has taken Western PA by storm. I see it all over the place all of the sudden. Elysian too, to a lesser degree. I have not tried anything Uinta yet.

awwwww shucks

there's a store here in south jersey that had it last year. i'll go during my lunch break and check it out. they'll think i'm a weirdo if i buy a whole case of it - since there's no bulk discount or anything, and it'll probably be like 150 bucks. that sort of opulence isn't really in line with their typical client base.

Oh, snap. They had it in stock and I snagged a case. I also picked up some dogfish head chickory stout and palo santo marron. I've never had a better beer day in my life.

I tried Rogue Christmas traditional... something like that, it was awful, everyone tried in and hated it. Super bitter.

Trying Storm King Stout again tonight. I dunno....I love Victory, and I love stouts. But for some reason, the taste just doesn't sit well with me. A little more hoppy than I am used to...then again, it is a Russian Imperial. Not bad, but far from my favorite stout.
