I'm always a sucker for a snappy label, and "Old Scratch" got me good.

Microbrews always taste like someone filtered them through a sandbag full of manure. YUCK!!!

I'm stickin' to Coors from now on.

tastes like crap?


laughable coming from a coors drinker
Link Posted: 1/21/2006 3:30:20 PM EDT
The only real microbrews are from Oregon.

I only drink Bud Light in cans.

Somebody told me it was a microbrew, so it must be good.

Try Samuel Adams Boston and Pale Ales, you will not like them if you are into the Coors and Bud thing but if you appreciate a good beer you will like. The Boston Ale has a kind of fruity taste that I'm sure is atributed to the yeast and the Pale Ale has a hopped up flavor that is not as intense as an IPA.

Hell make your own, alot of people do myself included, have a couple of gallons of homemade Muscadine wine aging now and am fixing to start a batch of Irish Red Ale.

Being in and drinking European beer has given me a true apprecitian for fine beers, Belgians are kick ass but are totally unlike the typical run of the mill Americian lagers. American beers tend to be light and crisp everything else is much more complex.

[Denis Leary] So I walk into this bar. looks like an Irish bar. There's a bartender, behind the bar.

Leary: Hey, how about a couple of Budweisers for me and my friends.
Bartender: Well I can't do that.
Leary: Why not?
Bartender: Because this is a microbrewery
Leary: Ohh, Ok. Well why don't you go in the back and microbrew me up some fucking Budweiser right now becuase this is Amreica and I am very thristy![Denis Leary]
Link Posted: 1/21/2006 3:57:35 PM EDT
I have a cream stout and a Bock ale in the ferminters now, and the Peach Chardonay turned out real good.
Canned brews are flat tasting to me, coors is water down crap.
Bud and Bud light give me heartburn, but I can make the knock off home brew that is supposed to be the same and it doesn't

Ok you are wrong, Blue Moon is not a Micro Brew.

You are used to watered down American macrobrews.

The average American Beer Drinker is used to Watery Beer.

Anything other than what they are used to and they call it crap.

Blue Moon is an unfilter Wheat Ale, which is very refreshing and tasty.

I like Beer with Flavor.

Some of the best micro brewed beer comes out of Cave Creek AZ. Crazy Ed's makes some real good beer. I'm not talking about the Chili beer!!!
They have two that are excellent.
Big Horn Bock which is 10 to 12 percent and Ocotillio Amber.
Both are great tasting and are high alcohol content.
My buddies and I went there last weekend and I am sitting here drinking one of them right now.
I agree with most replies here. I've tried many micro brews and most of the ones I've tried were'nt very good.
The two I mentioned, though , are real good.

If you can't find a beer of their's you like then you've probably endured a tongue scalding accident sometime during your life.


+1, even I have been to the Fredricksberg beer garten
Beer is only "good" when you can chew on it, and coors ain't beer.

Agreed, Magic Hat sucks. We have a beer fest every year on the waterfront in Burlington where all the microbreweries give out samples of their beer. There were maybe two brews out of about thirty that were remotely drinkable.

Thanks, but I'll stick to Guinness.

No, Dead Guy Ale and Blue Moon are fucking tits. You don't like how they taste because you've been drinking yellow water instead of beer your whole life.

Arrogant Bastard Ale
Budweiser
Newcastle

­There's tons of good beers. Some American mass-produced beers are good for what they are. They're light and refreshing and don't suck your face up with hops and are good really cold. Micros are more for sipping and enjoying, more of a hedonist thing.

My approach to beer, what little I drink these days -

Looks like beer, smells like beer, cold, and tastes like beer. Beer is good. Beer is probably devinely inspired.

Beer is like sex. Even when it's bad, it's ...

You guys are funny.

If you really like the taste of Coors, then of course you'll dislike most any good beer.

Everyone knows that the best beers in America are made at Victory Brewery. Hop Devil IPA, Storm King Russian Imperial Stout, and so on. They can't be beat when it comes to ale.
Pilsner Urquel is the best Pilsener I've ever had.
Orval, Chimay, Rochefort, or any other Trappist ale will send your tastebuds on a magical journey of happiness.

I would reccomend you try Warsteiner. It is waaaaaayy better than Coors or Bud, and is close enough in style that it won't scare you away. It's not such a dramatic change. That was the beer I used to introduce people to new kinds of beer. Never failed to impress. I have some fond memories of drinking a gigantic mug of Warsteiner in a beir garten in Germany on several occasions. I like Bittburger better, but Warsteiner Dunkel is pretty damn tasty after a long day of touring around.

I agree that Blue Moon is a sub par wheat beer. I wasn't impressed with it. It's made by Coors brewing Co. after all, so I don't know what I expected. If want to try a real wheat beer have a Maisel's Weiss, or a Weihenstephan Heffe Weissen. Those are impossible to top.

Prost!

This is a pretty spot on bit of info. Also, Don't forget Rodenbach, Stella Artois and Duvel.

USA breweries that rock:

Anderson Valley
Dechutes
New Belgium <--- Their Trippell is excellent

Some people actually like the tase of beer. Unfortunately major brand beers are watered down and pretty flavorless. Granted most microbrews are piss in a bottle desiged to lure in the trendy.

Brew your own, Quit yer bitchin. If you don't like what you brew yourself then either refine your recipe or move on to another style of drink. Homebrew is the only way to go.

Nuff said.
