  • Semi-annual BEER thread

    This beer is insanely great. Southern Tier Imperial Oat Oatmeal Stout. Runs about $8/bottle and is easily worth it.

        Not a criticism at all Hoopo....but how much money do you estimate you spend per week on beer? Just wondering.

        (and, btw, you were right....Kona Brewing puts out a lot of good stuff. Their Pale Ale was my favorite).

          I spend about $60/week, plus a monthly visit to the specialty store (either Knightly Spirits or Total Wine & Spirits) where I probably drop $100 easily. Included in my ~$60/week is my once per week visit to the local brewery, on $3 beer day. $15 + $10 tip (I'm smitten by the bar girl).

          In all, not a major expense. About what I spend a week on gasoline and toll roads.

          I estimate the annual expense at about $3000.

            $60 a week isn't bad. I easily spend that on useless shit at Target per week.

              I didn't include the annual Germany trip, which is about $3000 for four weeks, mostly on beer, lol.

                I picked up a 6-pack of New Belgium's Pale Ale (Mighty Arrow -- a spring seasonal). Pale Ale's are probably my favorite type of beer and I really can't believe I haven't tried this before. I think it's been out a few years (last year was ruled out since I was pregnant). Having lived in Fort Collins for 9 years, we are big fans of New Belgium.

                So this was ok. It seemed less hoppy to me than most PA's. I am a fan of hops so this wasn't necessarily a good thing. It also seemed a little (GASP!) fruity to me. But since I am a chick, I have no issue with a fruity aftertaste.

                My goal going forward is to buy a new, never-tried 6-pack of beer every Sunday when I do my weekly grocery store run. I welcome any suggestions.

                I was also thrilled to see that my favorite beer that I drank nearly everyday while in Hawaii (Kona's Fire Rock Pale Ale) was at my Safeway.

                    Two new flavors I'm enjoying: Sam Adams Alpine Spring and Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye IPA. Thumbs way up for the Rye. I enjoy the midwinter replacement for Winter Lager. But a bit too citrusy sometimes.

                          I've got as many miles from KC as you do. Get your lapdogs Oobers or Wave to do it.

                            Boulevard tweeted a link to a blog post on their site basically saying to stop bothering them, when and where it's available is up to the distributors now.
