    Outstanding in my field.
    Tried two new brews this weekend.

    Coffee Bender

    Buffalo Sweat Vanilla Stout.

    Both pretty damn good beers in my book.

    That looks rather good, I am pleased I asked this question now, it shows what a discerning bunch of inmates we are.
    I was expecting more replies from the UK and Europe, but it is good to see so much quality beer available in the US. I read the other day an English brewer saying he had brought back a particular technique used in one of his beers from the US which I was not expecting to hear, it looks like Bud and Bud lite are not the only things on offer.

    Oh, you Brits... :norton
    I had a Thornbridge Raven Black IPA yesterday at Trappist Provisions in Rockridge (neighbor to Berkeley) - it was really good. Surprisingly good. Thinking I should pay more attention to English beers. :freaky

    Blew my keg of Lucille IPA :cry so I'm reduced to bottles of Deschutes Inversion IPA. Darn tasty but not as good as keg beer.

    IPA all the way.

    I've been drinking the crap out of Lugene since it came out. Really damn good beer. Anyone in here get a chance to try this year's Pliny the Younger?

    I had the Enjoy by April 1st IPA off draft at the Hoppy Monk yesterday. It was pretty good, less of a bitter punch in the mouth as some IPAs tend to be, and more of a fruity freshness.

    90m ....

    I've been after the local liquor stores to get the 120m for months, they keep promising it and it never seems to show up. I'm about to haul my ass down to Delaware and go get the shit, its only 45 minutes and a $5 troll.

    I had a mixture of Shock Top Belgian White, Dogfish 60m and ......um, oh yeah, Blue Moon Short Straw (which was actually surprisingly good).

    Last week we were on vacation in Roatan, Honduras, so I spent the week drinking Salva Vida (kind of reminded me of PBR) which was the only local macro brew I could stand, along with Imperial. The other common beers were Barena, which tasted like Grain Belt Premium, which I dislike, and Port Royal, which may be the single worst beer I've ever had.

    Now that I'm home, I've been drinking a homebrew Irish Red I have on tap that's just sort of okay, as well as a couple of homebrew stouts I left in the fridge.

    I'm about ready to try some of my first attempt at brewing a chocolate stout - we'll see how that goes.
