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 am not as knowledgeable as most but enjoy a lot of different beers.

At the office right now and finally had a Mojo IPA my friend brought me from Colorado. Really enjoying it a lot.

If I am out and about I am drinking Boulevard because I like to support the company. Singlewide IPA if they have it or Pale Ale.

Tired most the smoke stack series and have enjoyed it. I lost a bet to my business partner and there is a Tank 7 for him sitting in the fridge for him that I am hoping he cracks open and shares with me.

Some random beer thoughts from the past few months.

My roomie let me try a hoegarden or whatever it is...the one DaKCman posted. Not impressed. I also heard everyone falling over themselves for Hopslam. Tried it at Foundry in Westport and it just was not for me. I am not there yet, couldn't even finish it.

I still love love love Bell's (except for Hopslam) beers so much. Big fan of their Amber Ale. I also love having the occasional Blue Moon...reminds me of college. I feel like the only person that doesn't mind having a Boulevard Lunar Ale.

HopSlam is the bessssssssst. Well, not the very best. But nearly.

I likes me a BLVD Lunar Ale. It isn't the best beer in the American Dark Wheat Ale style; it isn't even the best American Dark Wheat Ale in the state of MO (Schlafly No. 15 is probably the best beer of its style in the world). But it is darn fine beer to have at lunch with a nice sandwich or at dinner with some pork loin. It is one of those beers that improves with food.

The Top Five Beer Towns in the U.S.

1. SAN DIEGO

An eagerness to experiment and a passion for a pint (or three) put these cities on top.
by Christian DeBenedetti and Seth Fletcher

it’s the new beer capital of the U.S. Stone (maker of our number one ale) exemplifies the local approach, with aggressively hopped but completely drinkable brews. The variety of beers across the city is the most eclectic in the country.

Where to Drink: Thirtieth Street in North and South Parks is easily the nation’s best beer boulevard. Start with any of former firefighter Pat McIlhenney’s range of tap-only ales at the laid-back Hamilton’s Tavern (which taps special casks every Friday), then head to the beer-focused Linkery restaurant, which has frequent beer-pairing dinners. For your after party, hit the Toronado. The beer lists at all three are deep, stacked with the freshest local beers and exotic imports.

Beer Culture: The sheer number of breweries (33) blows us away. (It has crept past Portland, which has 29.) Visit almost any of them and you’ll find the brewmaster on hand, happy to chat over a pint.

Best Brews: Alpine Ale, Lost Abbey Duck-Duck-Gooze
theyre right about toronado's and hamiltons, their bar/lists always come through. Im surprised my watering hole isnt mentioned, obriens.

If I am picking best beer towns in the U.S. then I am starting with San Diego, too. I disagree with that list only in having Chicago there. I'd put Minneapolis ahead of Chicago. Why? Surly and Town Hall, that's why.

Sipping on a bottle of 2009 Founders Nemesis. The 2009 vintage of this annual one-time-only recipe release is a wheatwine aged in maple bourbon barrels.

It needs more time in the cellar. It is still too hot and too sweet.

Saw a Boulevard Tank 7 for the first time in Minneapolis today, and picked up a bottle, based on it being mentioned around here all the time. Hope it's tasty.

Also grabbed a bottle of Boulevard's Imperial Pilsner collaboration beer, which I'm excited to try...

Both are really good. Tank 7 is great, even. I've only had one Saison from America that is better than Tank 7.

Boulevard have mastered the Saison style. Their brewmaster, Stephen Pauwels, is from Belgium.

Is that distributed outside of MO? I'll have to keep an eye out for it, if it is...

It is a limited-release beer. But Minneapolis gets some of all the Boulevard limited-release beers. You should be able to find some right now.

Awesome, I'll have to keep an eye out for it. Wish I could find Bully Porter up here - I'm having a hard time imagining it being better than the Edmund Fitzgerald I'm drinking right now, but I'd like to find out first hand...

Its basically a wash. I'm just enamored with the contrasting bitternesses in Bully! Porter. It is super-roasty and pretty damn hoppy, and you perceive both of those bitternesses as distinct, playing off of each other.

Picked up the last bottle in stock at my local liquor superstore today.

Can't wait to try it. Might save it for my FF draft next month, though.

I've been suffering from major allergy bullcrap lately, prohibiting me from enjoying beer. I feel fine tonight, and as a result I'm decently intoxicated.

I had a bottle of Boulevard [Smokestack Series - Limited Release] Collaboration No. 1 (the Imperial Pilsner w/ Jon-Marie Rock of Orval). It is holding up very well; it is less fruity now but more pils-like than it was when fresh. The Saaz hops are really coming out right now.

I'm moving in two weeks and I have a 100+ bottle beer cellar. I'm thinking I should drink some of those beers so as to make moving easier. Right now I'm attempting to polish off my stash of Great Lakes Blackout Stout.
