Firestone Brews . . . . . . . .

I'll keep lookin' for 'em - Firestone brews . . . . . . . . . esp. @ Ballard Market or perhaps @ Central Market Shoreline(same owner) where (2x/month) I take the DL1000 shopping) . . . . . .

Loved the Firestone IPA -




The Ballard Market & Central Market Shoreline seem to have the same owner . . . . . . .

Ummm, yes have tasted only the IPA from Firestone . . . . .Satisfying.

Anyone up this way (Seattle area) know where these fine CA beers(DBA,or Velvet Merlin)may reside (bar, Tav.) or ? ? ?
Have you guys heard of full throttle bottles in Georgetown? Specialty brew store has virtually all micros in stock, and a local company. I go there when i'm in seattle for their amazing selection of ciders. Their website has their stock listed check em out!

I was just going to say this! Her website isn't always 100 percent up to date, but there is almost always DBA, Double DBA, and Union Jack there, I think she may have some Parabola or 14 left, too.

Wow!

I am suprised by all the "Macro" micro-brews thrown around this post: Pyramid, New Belgium, Sierra Nevada, etc.

I prefer going more local. Here in Eugene we have a great local brewer called Oakshire that has put out some really nice ales. I agree that Heater Allen makes great German-style beers. Bend has some excellent award-winning breweries, my favorites being Boneyard and 10 Barrel. Fort George out of Astoria is doing great things too. They sell their wares in the store via 16 oz cans which I actually really like. I can get a pint of great beer for $2.50!

Home brewing is by far the best way to go if you can cover the initial costs. There are some great supply shops around and the recipes are not difficult. The hardest part is the time it takes to complete a batch. However, like all good things, it is worth the wait.

Cheers!

Deschutes Brewery in Bend

I love a good glass of beer/ale and I got the physique to prove it.

I like just about every micro amber and micro IPA and micro brown I try.

But for some reason, the seasonal offerings from Deschutes Brewery in Bend always seem perfect.

Not sure how they do it but they hit home run after home run for me.

I was introduced to Skookum brewery just north of Marysville last summer and can't get enough. First time I've ever liked every brew in a taster flight, each one was distinct and yummy. Getting the growlers refilled makes for a nice afternoon ride on backroads, but I've still gotta come up with a way to keep them from tipping over in the top case. http://www.skookumbrewing.com/

I really like Mac & Jacks African Amber which can only be had in kegs. I always have Widmere Hefe on hand in the summer. The five liter kegs fit in a Polar Bear cooler in a panier perfectly by the way. They have a pretty good IPA Rotator series. Widmere and Deschuttes breweries beer you can't go wrong with. When ever I go on vacation I plan it around the local breweries though.

I really love the beer from Heater Allen too! The Deshutes Abyss kept me entertained during the Holiday season.

Weened on Coors at Tulagi's and The Sink in Boulder, CO (University of)

Raised on Miller Lite (et al.) for 10 years working for MBCo. in MKE.
They used to GIVE US 3 cases of anything brewed by the Company EVERY MONTH.
Had lots of "friends" in the neighborhood who'd show up each month around the 1st to see if I'd share the bounty. I did! Counted towards sainthood..

Miller Genuine Draft was/is clearly my fav.

Seems like somebody was impressed with my Coors weening experience.

NO..it wasn't me who came up with the Miller/Coors idea.

Uhhh . . . . . . . yeah used to comsume mass quatities of that, and other "lite" beers . . . . . . . back in the 1970's, early 80's - Coneheads - Mass quantities of beer ! ! ! ! ! See SNL vid clip below:

http://www.hulu.com/watch/4187/satur...eheads-at-home

. . . . . . . A little barley beverage for breakfast ! Mmmmmm - Mass quantities ! ! !

But, now looking for a little more tasty, and yes heavier brew; hopefully I'll drink fewer pints/bottles of it than back in the good old days ! ! !

And ' I'll have to say dayem, always love the fried chicken embryos ! ! ! Yummmy fer breakfast.

Hope the link works . . . . . Sorry I'm not embed-worthy

Three toed dragon . . . . . Hmmmm. Could be fortuitous ?

Oh yeah, HAPPY CHINESE (LUNAR) NEW YEAR to inmates here, there, & everywhere . . . . . . Happening Monday and beyond ! ! !

Definitely a winter beer; For my taste, I dilute it just a bit with whatever lighter stuff is at hand . . . . . .

Let's see, a game and 1/2 to go -

Skookum is such a fun place to hangout and excellent beer(if you can find it)!

I have been enjoying the 7 Seas British pale ale and double ipa. Manny's from Georgetown is probably my favorite

No experience with these (or other spirits), but Rogue Spirits also claims to have won various awards over the years for their gin, vodka. whiskey, rum, etc. . . . . . .
