i need a nice beer to pair with my st. patrick's day dinner. I've already decided I'm getting Lindemans Framboise lambic (for the lady friend and I) and I want something almost like a wine. I'm thinking a Dogfish Head Fort.

I tried it a few days ago. I actually just got a sample pour at timothys and couldn't even finish that couple ounces.

Well thats not to say you wont like it though. I just thought it was sickenly sweet and very fruity.
You work at stateline don't you? I think I remember talking to you before about that. You probably get a decent discount so it might not be too much of a waste if you don't like it.

Yea, I spend way to much time and money in state line. You live in Elkton? That sucks about discounts though.

I know a couple people that used to live back there. I grew up in Elkton (don't like to admit it though). You work tomorrow night or Sat morning? I will probably be in there one of those two?

Something rich, malty and sip-able.

A nice Belgian Dubbel is fruity, bubbly, but very drinkable.

Flavorful enough that you can make a 22 ounce bomber last 30-45 minutes, but easy drinking enough that you can down two good "glugs" after a bite of rich food to wash things down.

I would be there around 7 tomorrow night or when they open on Saturday. Oh well. I spend enough time in there that I am sure we will run into each other at some point. Hell we probably already have.

I second BM's recommendation for a Dubbel, although something like a Belhaven Wee Heavy would fit the bill as well for the brisket that I imagine is on the menu for Tuesday.

For Dubbels: try Westmalle, Corsendonk, Chimay Red, Ommegang Abbey, in that order.
