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!

I didn't mean to come off as rude...To be honest Im jealous. I rarely allow myself to splurge on great beer because I have trouble justifying it. I love good beer but I think I'm too much of a noob to really appreciate it. See if I spent that much, I wouldn't get nearly the return that someone like Reaper gets...

I hear you. I'm jealous too... but I'm jealous of his ability to limit himself to 1-2 beers. I can do that with wine and with good whiskey, but not with beer. That's why I generally drink shitty beer when I drink beer, because I like to drink 4-6 beers (at least) in a sitting. So I don't drink beer often because 1) it's expensive and 2) not good for me to drink that much.

My "splurge" beer is usually a six of Boulevard. My regular beer is either PBR or Old Style. If Yuengling gets here, which they're saying that it's about to, then that will probably become my goto drinking beer.

I also agree that Bud is not a pleasant drinking experience. You're using figuartive language when you say it tastes like old rotted hay, though. Right? Because there are beers -- saisons, biere de gardes, guezes, unblended lambics -- that have a heavy hay/barnyard flavor to them. Bud isn't one of them. Bud is pretty much straightforwardly cooked rice, green apple, and a bit of those nasty beechwood chips.
I recognize the taste. I've spent far to may hours in barnyards to look forward to a refreshing drink that reminds me of cleaning stalls and scooping poop. I can enjoy the nuances of grass. But rotted hay is beyond a nuance. Cow poop is different from chicken poop but in the final measure its poop.

We enjoyed a number, I would hate to know the number, of different beers in France, Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg, and Austria a few weeks back. In most cases we were in small pubs that had a limited number of brands and varieties but every one had a local or two that we tried. My drinking partner is a huge fan of wheats and we found a number that he really did not enjoy and he found that his normal distain for pilsners was misguided when he had really fresh local pils.

The fun was in the differences and in the variety that we generally lack here in the US.

And the conversations with the locals was fantastic. One German gent, after some heated and spirited conversation on politics and the economy bought a round and said all differences are put aside over a glass of beer!

That is so cool. When I go to Europe I basically want to go on a beer tasting tour.

Eh, better than Blue Moon...but yeah, the sweetness is why I'd be iffy on letting it too close to the top 50. Top 100 of beers to try once, though...in there somewhere.

Now if you want a full-bodied beer that should've been put into the top 50, go to Munich, Germany and get the Hofbraeuhaus Original.

Its interesting that every "bar" basically has a single main brand. They will have whatever varieties of that brand is available. But you wont find a bar often that has a large selection. But generally they will have a local brand as well with a smaller offering. The clientele of bar "A" likes the brand they carry. And if you have a different brand you want, you may have to go 1/2 block to another small place that carries that beer.

In rural area almost every town or group of towns has a local brewery that makes some excellent stuff you cannot get outside of that area. We hit those usually at lunch and they serve some fantastic food as well.

This will demonstrate what vast numbers there are...http://www.beer-club.info/beer-brand...er-brands.html

Then there is chocolate.

And Nuttella.

I lost 48 pounds before we went. I just gained 4.

Nice - I did something similar last year, except we hit the Netherlands instead of Austria. Hard to beat traveling around Europe, drinking beer...

Couldn't disagree more. Shock Top is one of the worst beers I've had.

That said, I'm not a fan of coriander spiced beers.

Mine would be:

Hoppin' Frog's BORIS Oatmeal-Imerpial Stout
Orval
Chimay
Young's Double Chocolate Stout
Rogue's Dead Guy Ale

There's plenty more and those were really a quick thinking top 5. BORIS is my current favorite beer. The Chimay may be the most flavorful I've had, though.

All of these I could get in a liquor store in KC?

Thanks for the list btw.

Someone gave me a six of Bar Harbour's Thunder Hole Ale. I wasn't expecting much for it given the packaging and randomness of gifting but it was a really delicious brown ale. I was impressed. Though, it might have been just me being caught off guard.
