I can't say I have a favorite "list" with the top being the best, but here's a photo of my recent "beer run"


I'm really looking forward to some Sierra Nevada Celebration this fall/winter. The stuff I have was cheap at $6 six-pack but had been sitting for a while. Still good though!

If I run to the grocery store cuz I wanna get schnocker'd my primary choices are:

New Glarus IPA "Hop Hearty"
Lakefront PA "Cream City Pale Ale"

The Orval I'm sipping on now isn't what I thought it would be. Refresing, yes! Something I'd sip on while mowing the lawn...tasty and dry with a hint of lemon and a fruity aroma.

Ah yes, the Rogue beers I'd forgotten about. And Dead Guy Ale is good too. I should have put those on my list. Abita Turbo Dog is another one I like.

Exo, can you name those in order? I can't make out some of the labels, although I recognize many of them. I have to say I didn't really think much of the Dogfish Head India Brown Ale.

I like Shiner Hefeweizen, Rahr Red, New Belgium Skinny Dip and Fat Tire

Those are my hot weather favorites, at least. Once winter rolls around I'll be buying some 1554 and Rahr Ugly Pug.

I asked my wife to find me some Arrogant Bastard when she goes shopping (to the GOOD store) this afternoon. Hopefully she remembers!

I've got a Dead Guy Ale sitting in my fridge, I keep waiting for the right occassion to crack it open.
