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?!
Spoiler!

Now imagine how good a bottle that's two weeks old (or less!) would taste. There's a reason why a certain bottle of Pliny the Elder recieved my highest review score ever.

I might have liked it more if I hadn't expected a much hoppier experience.

Anyone tried any others from the "Pugsley Signature Series" Shipyard puts out?
That sounds exactly what I expected XXXX IPA to taste like. I've had the imperial porter from the Shipyard Pugsley Signature Series; I found it pretty blah.

I am definitely going to keep an eye out for it now. A beer guy at the best liquor store near downtown Denver said the get a decent amount of cases in somewhat regularly but it sells out in a day.

**** you bastards with access to Pliny. I love IPA's and it's nowhere to be found in Texas.

Did have Ommegang's Hennepin at the gingerman in Fort Worth last night. Very tasty.

Also tried Bear Republic's Crazy Ivan IPA which was pretty middling of all the IPA's I've had.

Had a third IPA but don't remember the name. It was sort of like Twisted Thistle which is IPA lite IMO.

I liked Hennepin. Surprised since I didn't like Three Philosophers, but I'm giving the latter another try soon.

Orval may just be the best on this list. Of the ones I've had, of course.

Man, I forgot Old Engine Oil is on the list. Damn good one too. Tough call.

Orval is an all-time classic. One of the great treasures of the beverage world.

I hope to one day be in San Diego for PtY. I heard that Russian River is not allowing growler fills of Pliny the Younger next year, seeing as how the beer ran out at RR in like 8 hours.

Orval is definitely awesome and unique. I actually visited that monastery last year, which was pretty cool. Unfortunately, they didn't allow tours of the brewery...

Re-tried Three Philosophers. Much preferred it the second time. I'm not sure why.

No, we have Central Market and Goody Goody if you want good craft beer. Some other liquor stores have decent selections but Goody Goody is the largest and consistently has Blvd.

I feel like a dick talking about De Struise Black Damnation II: Mocha Bomb last week and, now, Black Damnation III: Black Mes because it is nearly impossible for any of you to get them outside of trading. They are not sold in the U.S.; only Belgium gets them. I got them straight from De Struise because I'm lucky enough to have a connection.

Black Damnation III: Black Mes is 100% Black Albert aged on Caol Ila 1995 Distiller's Choice scotch whiskey barrels. It is really, really delicious, as you can tell from my review that I linked to.

this was like finding gold. For those who've had the younger, the sculpin is almost comparable to it. Its also a very limited release and I luckily found it in albertsons backdoor alcohol fridge

Had tonight:

Goose Island's Demolition Ale - Very delicious. At first, I wasn't sure I'd like it as I found it to be a spiced Belgian Ale but, if it was, it was very mild. I liked it, overall.

Hoppin' Frog's BORIS The Crusher Oatmeal-Imperial Stout - Seriously tasty. Has the bite of Avery's Mephistopheles, which is to say it has an incredible and addictive bite. Makes me keep grabbing for more sips.
