Well the Beer of the Week was a great idea. I like it a lot and would enjoy participating, adding my own input, and having an excuse to drink beer. But it seems the idea has passed.
I'm sad.

What can you get over there? Perhaps we should consider something reasonably easy to find for most people such as Newcastle or Sam Adams. Is something like Weihenstephan easy for most people to get?

Yeah, I wanna keep it going. We'll have to pass around the torch to different people to decide what we will do for the week. I'd like an advance schedule of what we have in mind so we can plan for it. I'm a shift worker so it is hard for me to be around on a Fri/Sat every week to get a thread started and/or participate in the tasting right then. Maybe we could make it a beer of the month, or a bi-weekly thing?

I DO want to keep it going though. I do agree about Newcastle (everyone should be able to get that) next.

I'll be in Minnesota next weekend so I'm out, but I'll gladly get some Newcastle when I get back and add to the thread.

My sellection is pretty limited; I just found Red Hook and a half dozen Rouge beers at a new store. They also have Gulden Draak, a Belgian srtong ale. Also a few German things.
You name it I'll try to find it.

In the interim.... Let's consider the Steel Reserve Triple Export.
The can claims an ABV of 8.1 %. They say it is " Slow brewed in limited batches using only the finest barley & selected hops. We believe this to be the among the very best beers in the world. ".

The taste leaves something to be desired. I actually enjoy the regular Steel Reserve. This isn't as good. My palate isn't educated enough to distinguish the difference enough to describe it.
The ABV is kicking, though ! I'm down to the last 2 or 3 swallows from a 24 oz. can and I'm really feeling relaxed.
I've had to stop and edit 3 or 4 times so far.

I'm gonna go drive the tractor !
Don't try this at home......

I think we should try and use this Beer of the Week to both educate our palates and learn to describe what we're tasting. If you know of a commercially available beer which really showcases a certain flavor. (My Pale Ale #3 tasted a lot like Red Hook ESB when I bottled it, was that diacytel?)

Can everyone get Chimay? I have a Chimay 3 pack here that I need to crack open one of these days...it has a white, blue and red bottle in it. Which one is the grand reserve or whatever?

At any rate, we should "beer of the week" all of the Chimays at some point.
