Ok planeteers, this is my first poll so dont laugh if i screw it up.

I was curious what planeteers favorite type of beers were. could be anything from india pale ale, imperial stout to the cheaper (and crapier in my opinion) american light lager. poll forthcoming

Generally any Belgian Brown for me. But I also like American Pales a lot. Black lagers are also high on my list.

06-21-2007, 04:40 PM
i tend to stick to the heavier and thicker bodied type stouts and porters. I love any type of cream stout or vanilla stout or porter. Its getting harder and harder for me to enjoy any type of ale these days.

This is my current favorite.

http://www.unibroue.com/products/3pistoles.cfm


Type Strong Dark Ale, refemented in the bottle
Alcohol 9 % alc./vol.
Color Dusky black
Taste Wild fruit with an aftertaste of port
Aroma Ripe fruit and chocolate
Shelf Life 8 years or more
Serving Suggestions Pasta, game and wild fowl, desserts

Trois Pistoles was launched in June of 1997. It contains 9% alcohol and is brewed with roasted malt. Its rich, smooth texture, and the presence of yeast used for in-bottle refermentation give it a very distinctive flavour.

This dark beer and has an aroma of ripe fruit and a pleasant aftertaste that lingers like old port wine.

Trois Pistoles can be enjoyed before a meal or after, and is excellent with pasta as well as game meat and wild fowl.

It also enhances the flavour of desserts like chocolate mousse and fruit salad, and can even replace coffee as an after dinner drink.
------------------------------------------------------------------

I've tried this...I think it was this one. I drank it with some french silk pie. if you like dark chocolate, try this Ale with it. (not something you want to try if you are planning on getting wasted BTW)

My 1st comment has nothing to do with this thread, but, geez. Why don't you throw Boy George in there for the perfect circle ....

Now, on topic.

I used to be a beer snob and only drink micro beers.

I now drink Bud Light because I never get a hangover or full. The Monks used to drink 1 glass of water for every beer so they could work in the morning. There was no calling in sick back in the day.

They couldn't water down their beer because it would not last and would be too heavy to transport.

Bud Light is liked a glass of water with every glass of beer.

When I want to drink for taste I open a bottle of wine. There is much more a craftsman can do with wine than beer.

My current favorite wine's are:

Rombauer Zin
Seghasio Zin
Kenwood Zin (Jack London Vinyard)

...notice a theme?

If you're going to go Micro Anchor, Sierra and Fat Tire are the best in my opinion.

Where is the "Bitch,go down to the corner and get me

Back in college we used to get stupid drunk while
drinking 40's of Mickey's and the politically incorrect
Crazy Horse(anyone remember this one?)

Now,i tend to choose a Pale or a Stout.

And,being from KC,i will always favor Boulevard's
seasonal brews whenever i can find them.Nothing says
Christmas more than Nutcracker Ale.

I noticed that ciders weren't listed.I suppose they aren't technically a beer...but,they serve the same purpose.Hornsby's Amber Draft is my current favorite in that area.

Amusing comparison but while its kind of the same it's not at all. Crappy light beer serves a very good purpose of being cheap and extremely drinkable in mass quantities while doing many things. Its hardly something you are going to savor or an alternative for an beer special of something better for the same price.

If you are sitting around to enjoy a beer its right to scoff at it but if you are somewhere like a ballpark after a few beers deep already...it serves a purpose.

It is fictional and not the reason they make it light, however, when I drank Anchhor, Sierra, etc, all night I would feel full all night and wake up with a hangover.

Now I don't. Drink your micro and be happy. I'll drink my water beer and feel the same way.

If you want real craftsmanship there is a lot more you can do with a grape.

I will drink some wine for the taste and then swithch to Bud Light so I feel OK in the morning.

Just giving you a hard time since I don't really care for zins which is ironic since I'm drinking on another grape variety I don't care much for right now. I opened up a bottle of Columbia Crest Merlot which is very drinkable for being really cheap.

I mostly stick to Cabs, Shiraz, Rhone Vally, Chianti and Malbec's and go thorough phases of any of those or the other dry reds.

$5 a bottle is hard to beat if it tates good. Costco has a wine called Menagois a tois at about $7 a bottle. It is a good wine if they have it in your area.

I have gotten into the zins lately and like the 2 types. There seems to be peppery ones and fruity ones. Each has its place depending on whats being served.

Agreed. If you can find something that is somewhat enjoyable at $5-7 a bottle it will work well enough. Good suggestion with Menagois a Tois which is a pretty tasty inexpensive red blend.

I have honestly not really sampled a lot of zins since all of them I have tried have been of the fruity/semi sweet variety which I dislike for wine. Might take buying a decent bottle of the right type for my taste I guess.

Mojo Rising
06-23-2007, 03:23 AM
If you don't like the fruity then don't buy the Rombauer. The Kenwood Jack London can be had at Safeway for $15.

Bevmo has a coupon code for $10 off a $30 purchase (google to find.) I have cleared out all of the local supply. The shipping might make it un-affordable for you.

It is on the peppery side... so is the Seghasio.

Here's a tip on how to get rid of all the wine glasses in your cupboard from events.

Pour the same wine into a crystal glass (Rydell, Waterford) and regular glass.

Crystal allows the wine to breath in the glass. Taste each and notice the difference.

Everyone I know who has done the blind taste test, and drinks wine, has bought some crystal.

Unfortunately the grocery stores can't sell wine in Colorado. However it has a nice side effect with the mid/larger liquor stores being highly competitive when pricing whine.

06-23-2007, 04:09 AM
I forgot about CO being a dry state in the grocery stores. I was in Winter Park in Feb. with a cart full of Bud Light.

My wife noticed there wasn't a wine/booze aisle and we figured it was headache beer in the cart.

You are right that it forces the liqour stores to carry good wine. We found better wine in Winter Park than some places we go to in No Cal.

It is a pain in the a** though.

Reminded me of growing up in Leawood and having to drive to Martin City to get beer on Sundays.

Miles
06-23-2007, 04:42 AM
It really isn't that big of a deal usually since liquor stores can stay open till midnight. Though during football season it is quite annoying that you can only buy "near beer" on Sunday if you forget to stock up the day before.

It's not about spending money. I used to drink micros, then I decided I wanted to drink more than 6 without getting bloated and having a hangover.
