Default My Companions for the weekend




SWMBO kinda likes the lambics. She's getting there.

I've NEVER had La Fin Du Monde or the Hobgoblin or the Three Philosophers, or the Stone Smoked Porter.

I thought that La Fin Du Monde was just ok. Not anywhere near as good as their Trois Pistoles. The Stone Smoked Porter is very good.

I had picked up three philosiphers a month or so ago and it was very good. Definitly a sipping beer, pretty big. Thought it was almost champaignish

The only one I've tried is the Stone. I liked it a lot. It's a very mellow, tasty treat IMO.

Three Philosphers is a rad brew. One of them alone will put you in high spirits. La Fin Do Monde, save til the next night after Three Philosophers.. =) Stone's Porter is a work of art in itself.. As for the others, cant comment.

Can't go wrong with the Hobby Gobby. Great with a nice sandwich.

Three Philosophers is a brilliant beer. Is that a real fruit gueuze, or a sweetened, pasteurized "lambic"?

Pretty sure that it's a Lambic.

What do you think of the Sam Adams Brown? I had one in a mixed six pack and thought it was pretty good. Other reviews out their seemed to be mixed at best.
