    I've been trying to clear some of the Alchemist limited release beers out of my fridge so I can fit groceries there. It's been tough.

    We've had about 5 micro's start up in the last year in the area. Not a beer drinker....might have been too much at University. Did try a new one from Beau's in Van Kleek Hill last weekend that I could get down, Buenos Dias it was called.

    I might have to stop by the store on my way home from my 12 hour shift tomorrow. Hope they're not already out!

    It's not for everyone. I only like IPAs and some extra pale ales and American pale ales. There's something about the taste of lager that I just don't like. Nor do I like stouts or porters. I'm very limited in my beer tastes, so I'm glad there are so many IPAs to try :)

    You can say EpicSki. ;)

    I thought you had friends who could help you with that. ;)

    Meanwhile, look what popped up in my news feed.

    Lagers, blech! I spit them from my mouth! :poo: There are sooo may other styles of beer that are better tasting, IMO. I rate lagers last out of all styles I've tried. Light/lite lagers are the very worst.

    My key take-away from this post is: There are sooo may other styles of beer.

    You probably like corduroy over powder, too. ;)

    I'll say . It seems to be who can outhop the other too hopped beer. A funny sailing cartoon nailed it. "Death by Hops" 2016-10-16_17-22-05.jpg

    I used to feel like that too until a local brewery, Chuckanut, put out their Vienna Lager. It is incredibly tasty and if you think of lagers as being like Lucky Lager or that ilk, you have no idea what this stuff is like. Chuckanut Brewery (owned and operated by the Kemper of Thomas Kemper fame) has so many medals from the world beer competitions that they just put them on a bar on the wall where they slide another bunch on every time the worlds come around. This year they got something like 7 medals, including several golds. The Vienna Lager took second and their Pilsner took first, neither of which tastes anything like the mass produced garbage you find at the AM/PM. Strangely they sell lots of kegs in Seattle and other urban areas, but here in Bellingham they don't have a huge following. Everyone wants IPAs with too much hops so the subtle flavors get mowed down.

    We have lots of breweries here in B'ham (I've lost count), many making fabulous beers. Melvin just opened a new one here, so our beer crew has a field trip scheduled for this coming Monday to try it out.

    Of IPAs:
    Funny. I was brewing IPAs in the 80s. I guess I was ahead of my time. That they have been popular recently is just a matter of 'what is hip'. They are on the way out now, it would seem. It's all sour this and sour that around here these days. Talk about yuck!

    Here's another IPA vote. But my son is the real beer geek of the family. He likes IPA's, but is really into the sours. I can't do much more than choke a sour down under protest. "à chacun son goût" - each chooses his own goat.

    Funny. He brought a beer to us when he stayed here. I'm not a beer drinker at all and Phil only likes the occasional beer. The beer he brought is a sour. Its still in the fridge ;)

    I know people who drink Coors Light like water after a bike ride or skiing. They even say it's like drinking water.

    It is low alcohol (4.2%) compared to 5% for Banquet. Banquet is the only Coors guaranteed to be made from Rocky Mountain water as it is only brewed in Golden. For the record, I despise Coors Light. Any light, pretty much. When I want water, I run the tap.
