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?!

while it doesn't necessarily rank with a lot of the awesome beers listed in here....it IS pretty good. I loved it the first time I had it on tap. then bought it bottled and it was TERRIBLE. I recently discovered it comes in cans with a nitro widget in there to give you that creamy draft texture. pretty damn good!

Hopefully Hair of the Dog is on your list. Fantastic brewer.

Chainbreaker was very mediocre to me, though.
If you ever see this one from Anchorage Brewing, get it. It's one of the best brews I've ever tried.

KC locals, do yourselves a favor, head to Martin City Brewing Company and have a fresh beer.

The wife and I are splitting a growler of their bourbon barrel aged Porter and it's just fantastic, so much coconut and vanilla from the barrels.

Spent yesterday at 2nd Shift Brewing in New Haven, MO. I brought home:

Growlers:
LSD
Katy

Bombers:
Art Of Neurosis
Hibiscus Wit
Albino Pygmy Puma
Brew Cocky

After our tasting, I walked back to brew house and they let me hang out and chat for a bit. I was surprised that they are just a 2 person operation, brew and bottling. They (Steve) hooked me up with a bottle of Grace (unreleased American Wild Ale), a couple 2nd Shift glasses and some stickers. They were in there busting their asses. He said him and his girl work 7 days a week, 12-15 hrs a day and they break even. Super cool people with plus to great beers. Definitely hope to see more of them available in KC.

On a side note, 2nd Shift rents it's building on the property of a resort/retreat outside New Haven. Not knowing anything about it, I stayed the night there. No joke, they were hosting a ****ing ukulele festival on the property. 60 ukulele players from around the country were there. I've experienced some bizarre shit in my life, but getting buzzed on 2nd Shift beers while watching a ukulele open mic jam session is definitely up there. It was like the PBS American Idol.

The Bruery Saison Rue
Crooked Stave Artisan Brewing Project - Surrette Sour
Brooklyn Brewery Sorachi Ace

Arthur deserves all the hype. It's my favorite on that list by a long shot. And yes, I've tried all of them.

Heh. The writeup on Arthur is funny in the article. The brewmaster said, "Why do we only have one beer on the list?"

Thanks for the list. I've only tried four of them, but I've been looking for some of the others, including Arthur.

Honestly though, I'd replace Hennepin with Saison-Brett.

That's not really a surprise coming from Shawn Hill. To be fair though, everything I've tried from Hill Farmstead has been top notch.

From that list only Saison Dupont, Hill Farmstead Arthur, and Brasserie de Blaugies Saison d'Epeautre are actual top 10 saisons.

I'd like to see your list, Reaper. Not to criticize it, just to see what I should be looking for as a new fan of saisons.
