50 Beers to Try Before You Die

Thought the beer snobs here might like this article (and probably critique the hell out of it).

http://www.wisdeo.com/articles/view_post/2984
(CBS) You've heard of "100 Bottles of Beer on the Wall"?

How about 50 to try before you die?!

I think I hear ya here. I, also, have never had a brown ale that made me say 'wow'. I've had a few that were nice solid drinkers, but not an exceptional one.

I have my conception of what an A-range American Pilsner tastes like though: Sam Adams Noble Pils and especially Victory Prima Pils are the class of American Pilsners for me.
How did I forget about Noble Pils?!?!

(you'll probably wonder how I drink that given it's hoppiness but it works for me)

I'll have to give Lips of Faith another go but I didn't care for them much.

Almost had a wine-like aftertaste. I think I was too shitfaced to really get a good impression of what I was drinking. But I did enjoy the hell out of it.

Anybody else have any impressions of this beer?
I LOVE Chimay. Perhaps the most flavorful beer I've had.

Well I'd never had it before, and it kinda kicked my ass in a good way. But I didn't know how to classify it or even accurately describe what I was drinking.

I liked the Red the best, but they were all pretty good....

and now tonight for the ku game:

on recommendation of my beer guy (also have a Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout as backup, i'm reading some very mixed reviews for the left hand, oh well)...he also mentioned a Mikkeller Chipotle Porter, anyone tried it?

hard to imagine liking it for more than a few drinks
Try the Shakespeare apart from some of the other bigger beers before writing it off. A fantastic example of the stout style, IMHO. The Sam Smith is also a very tasty stout...

Have you had the Tyranena Benji's Chipotle Smoked Imperial Porter? I haven't had the Mikkeller, but I loved the Benji's...

Nope. I've never lived anywhere that Tyranena distributes to. They've teased MO for years, the ****s.

Quote:
From classic favorites to rule-bending experimentations, this year was an inspired one for beer. We sipped, quaffed and guzzled our way through bottles, barrels and kegs to pare down the best of the best from 2010.

Angelís Share Grand Cru
The Lost Abbey
Wood-Aged Beer
Angelís Share is one of the most sought-after beers around, but it got even more exclusive this year when co-founder Tomme Arthur opened up his entire barrel library to create a blend of vintages past. He carefully choreographed barrel-aged Angelís Share from 2010, 2009, 2007 and 2006óthe brewís debut yearófor a palate-coating sensation of flavors: Mature licorice, plum, molasses and chocolate layer above roasted bitterness for a deliciously syrupy swallow that finishes remarkably dry.

Ranger India Pale Ale
New Belgium Brewing Co.
American IPA
You may know this brewery best for its ubiquitous malt-driven beer, Fat Tire, but this year New Belgium released another brew that quickly became a crowd pleaser. Ranger India Pale Aleís an Łbercitrusy, Cascades-packed drink that tastes like grapefruit in a glass. Bright, juicy hops and drying bitterness make this an exceptional example of the style, and its approachability and mass appeal make it worthy of the widespread praise it received. Itís undoubtedly one of the yearís must-haves.

Duvel
Duvel Moortgat
Belgian Golden Strong Ale
Delicate yet demanding of your respect, this classic 100-point brew defines the Belgian golden strong style: Peppery spice punctuates pear, orange and floral hop scents, while on the tongue, ripe pear and peppery yeast tango before sweet honey balances a prickly hop finish. Itís a classic, and with each passing year remains a shining example of how an evolving beer world still holds flawless tradition close to its heart.

Yorkshire Stingo
Samuel Smithís Old Brewery
Old Ale
The only beer this year to receive a perfect, 100-point score from our panel, Yorkshire Stingo nails the BJCPís guidelines for old ales at every step, and goes the extra mile by delivering complex malty surprises with each trip back to the glass. Every sipís memorable as rich caramel and sherry flavors play alongside deep, woody oak notes and molasses threads. The complexity is masterful and might be the best thing to happen to your snifter all year.

Pursuit of Hoppiness
Grand Teton Brewing Co.
American Red Ale
A bold, bright mouthful of hops, Pursuit of Hoppiness is one of the standout brews leading the burgeoning American red ale movement, and this year it transitioned from limited-release status to year-round availability. Sticky caramel flavors balance brawny bitterness while piney, citrusy hops deliver on the beerís name. Displaying a stunning balance between hops and malt, this beerís new distribution earns it a regular place in any discerning beer fridge.

Saboteur
Odell Brewing Co.
Specialty Beer
Odellís Single Serve Series is full of perennial favorites, but this yearís addition of Saboteur set a new benchmark for the brewery. The brewers age a traditional English brown ale in American oak barrels once used to house the breweryís refined, cork-and-cage Woodcut series, then inject rowdy Brettanomyces yeast for a secondary fermentation. The result is a sophisticated blend of toasty brown ale notes, tart Brett, vanilla and rich, dark cherries. A subtle pineapple note beneath the funk tips this beer into the realm of excellence.

Monkís Blood
21st Amendment Brewery
Belgian Dark Strong Ale
A collaborative effort that took a year to complete, Monkís Blood is the brainchild of 21st Amendment owners Shaun OíSullivan and Nico Freccia, chef and DRAFT contributor Sean Paxton, and the team at Belgiumís De Struise Brouwers. This brew packs in a laundry list of ingredientsódried mission figs, caramelized sugar syrup and American hops, to name a fewófor a sugary-sweet profile thatís spiked with spicy cinnamon, dark fruits, vanilla and oaky
tannins and wraps up with a fun, sour finish. Thereís simply nothing else like it.

Hop in the Dark
Deschutes Brewery
Black IPA
This year saw a tidal wave of bottled black IPAs, but none caught our attention like Hop in the Dark, a Cascadian dark ale. It may not be credited as the first of its kind, but after 22 attempts to perfect the recipe, it tops the list. Cascade, Citra and Centennial hops offer citrusy, piney hop flavors over a bed of lightly roasted, coffee-infused malts. Itís a blend of two worlds and a standard for those exploring this new style.

Tripel
Westmalle
Belgian Tripel
As DRAFTís first-ever 100-point review, we just canít help returning to this beer time and again. Westmalle embodies the tripel style with a thoughtful balance of sweet, fresh pear, lemon zest and a dash of peppery spice. Its flirtatious effervescence sweeps the mouth clean, while lingering lemony hops leave the mouth pining for more. Quaffable yet world-class, this beer displays a quiet elegance achieved over a few hundred years of monastic dedication, and for that, the beerís a timeless favorite.

Happy Ending Imperial Stout
Sweetwater Brewing Co.
Russian Imperial Stout
Big beer continues to bubble up from the South, and this 9%-ABV, ink-black brew from ATL is the one worth noting. Lurking beneath a robust blanket of roast, chocolate and coffee, plums and raisins sink into the taste buds while a bright flash of citrus hops introduce a wave of bitterness that cleans the luscious, heavy flavors from the tongue. Itís bold, complex and unsung in the world of hyped-up stouts.

etc....

Hard to go wrong with Samuel Smith. I'll have to be on the lookout for the Yorkshire Stingo.

Did the stop off at Lucas today. They didn't have any Erdinger but I got a few new ones. Trying Vat 7 now. I have to admit, its not bad at all. Not something I will long for but it is pretty nice.

For a guy who bought his first tv in 27 years its a nice way to get over buyers remorse.

Picked up a couple Moretti La Rossa Birra Doppio Malto's in a mix-a-match 6er at Red X today. Got the sauce going early and the ol lady is rolling the meatballs.

Also in the 6er is a couple Schlafly Coffee Stouts that I haven't tried yet.

And of course Miller High Life Tallboys for the crew.
