I'm going with Great Lakes Octoberfest.
I didn't see an official brews thread, so I figure I'd add one. (Apologies if there's already one. I did search.)So what's everyone drinking tonight for the poll results? Favorite beers?As I stated in a specialty thread, I'll be drinking my favorite affordable tonight. A 6-pack of Spatan Optimator. Doesn't get much better than this. $7.99/6 pack and oh so good.
I think you've mentioned this one in another thread. Can you describe it for an ignorant man, such as myself?
I like draft beer so I get growlers to go from the local breweries. It is always fresh and tasty. Locals we go to:Rock BottomGreat Lakes (which offers no savings on beer to go. boo!)Chop HouseWe rarely have bottles around.
My buddy's coffee shop/gallery/indy rock venue Bela Dubby on Madison in Lakewood (gratuitous shout out) has it on tap, I love to sneak in for a pint or two after work before heading home.
That's a crime. A clean growler is a clean growler. They should fill up what ever you bring in there.....I think that the 64 oz is a pretty standard size, it's not like you are trying to scam more beer.Sounds like Rockbottom is a pretty good deal.
I have a year long project for 2008. My goal, by the end of the year, is to have tried 365 different kinds of beer. It may not sound like much, but it is actually quite a challenge to find 365 different brands/types of beer. The local grocery store my top out at around 50, if it has a good selection. The key to this will be microbrews and brewpubs, along with some specialty shops in the area that carry a wide selection of beers. (Namely: Jungle Jims in Fairfield, OH and Tha Party Source in Newport, KY.)The list is slightly interactive, allowing the user to sort by various parameters, in ascending and descending order. If anyone has some suggestions for making it better, feel free to let me know.The list may be found here.
^That sounds about right. Trappistes Rochefort 10 is 11.3% ABV, and it goes for $5.99/bottle.

Can you describe it for an ignorant man, such as myself?Well, it's considered to be a doppelbock, but it goes down so smoothly. It's the only relatively "affordable" dark beer that I can drink one after the other like juice. It also qualifies for the European definition of "malt liquor", which basically means it's higher alcohol (7%).I'm not great at describing flavors but I strongly suggest you give it a shot. You can just buy a single bottle from the cold section at Party Source, if you don't want to shell out for a 6-pack.
Quote from: hydrobond on November 05, 2008, 09:38:11 AM(words)I'm absolutely shocked that you didn't enjoy (and rather hated) the Goose Island Matilda brew. What did you not like about it?
Just three stars for Burning River? BANNED!!!
Hydrobond, why only 2 stars for Dogfish 120? Thats something I really enjoy...can't have more than one though; its 20% abv! Be sure to add some Founders to your list, especially their Breakfast Stout- delish!
I wonder if The Party Source has Dogfish 120. I'd love to try it.
Can anyone tell me why the Morelein Emancipator Dopplebock is so difficult to find? I enjoyed it at Highlands, a couple months ago, but then it was gone. More recently, I had some at Grammer's last week. The bartender told me that not many people have been ordering it. What's the deal with that? It's the best Morelein beer of them all!
Grammer's should be praised for carrying so many Cincinnati recipes. I had a Burger, a Little Kings, and a Hudy Delight yesterday, after the OTR 5K. I call it the Cincinnati Sampler.$1 Burger at Grammer's, just so you know.

^ you should go to edwards in tribeca. its mediocre, but its nice anyway the thing is once a month they have a cinci import night w/ chili, graeters, larosas and i think i saw beer too. i read that the connection is that the red sox kevin youkilis played ball at univ of cinci, his uncle owns this place and they have been doing it since then:http://www.edwardsnyc.com
Does anyone know the reason why Yuengling isnt sold in Ohio? Me and some pals were talking the other week about it and some said that there is something in Yuenglings distributing contract that doesnt allow them to ship to Ohio, but no one knew if that was actually true or not. Its a shame we cant get it here because it is one of my all time favorite beers, along with any Great Lakes beer, Newcastle, and Tenants.

Its a shame we cant get it here because it is one of my all time favorite beers, along with any Great Lakes beer, Newcastle, and Tenants. i believe it is the incentives that are provided by the major brands to the local distributors. iirc, local distributors could sell YL (and other beers that aren't available), but by doing so, they would risk losing incentives, marketing dollars, etc. that are provided by the big companies. it becomes one way to maintain market share.it is sold in the youngstown area, so not sure if that distributor bucked the trend or it could be that being closer to PA, they recognized the benefits of providing the beer.
Thanks for the explanation, maybe ill have to start making trips to Youngstown and stock up on Yuengling, and sell enough of it to friends to break even on gas expenses.
