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 got drunk off Milwaukee's Best one time in college. Never again and there is a reason why they call that shit The Beast. That shit is nasty and it doesn't taste any better coming up.

What is my attitude? Civil? Fair? I think so. If only that were actually trendy.

I don't know what turdcorn is, but that sounds like an accurate description of Milwaukee's Best. Yeast infections are bad. Beer can certainly get infected though any number of bacteria. You don't want infected beer; it's gross. There are classic beer styles over a thousand years old (lambic, guezue, some Saisons) that are spontaneously fermented b the yeast in the open air. These beers have naturally occurring Brettanomyces yeast which causes funky, barnyard, horseblanket flavors (this yeast is absolutely feared by winemakers. Funk is a definite flaw in wine, but in beer it can be something transcendent) and they can also have some bacteria, such as lactobacillus or pediococcus, that cause lactic or acetic sourness in a beer. When controlled, those bugs can do nifty things in beer. But you don't want your bottles or brewing equipment to get overtaken by those bacteria; that's how infections happen.
Maybe turdcorn is huitlacoche? Wonder if anyone has ever worked that into the brewing process.

Boulevard Bully! Porter -- it helped me to appreciate the darker malt flavors and was instrumental in getting me to appreciate roasted malt character. It's also a good beer to show off how hops can be an important part of a beer even when the beer isn't trying to show off the hop flavors.

Bell's Two Hearted Ale -- the first India Pale Ale I fell in love with. It happened on first sip. All those floral and grapefruit hop flavors. This is a stellar beer, period, and a great way to appreciate high alpha acid beer.

Rogue Dead Guy Ale -- A wonderfully balanced beer. It's brewed in the Helles Bock lager tradition but it uses ale yeast, so its something of a hybrid. This is a great example of a full-flavored beer that shows off what malt types and hop types that play well with each other can do together.

Goose Island Matilda -- this is a Belgian Pale Ale. It isn't nearly as hoppy as an American Pale Ale; the yummy Belgian yeast is the major player here. Brewing spices, airy malt, some grassy hops, wonderful fruit flavors of lemon, pear and white grape, and a lively effervescence. This beer is very refreshing yet complex. And it is insane to pair with all kinds of food, from grilled salmon to a simple turkey sandwich.

Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier -- this is the gold standard of German hefeweizen. You're not going to find a better straight-up German wheat beer. Again, refreshing, easy-drinking, yet rich with complexity.

Not only will those five beers help your palate along in different ways, they are each deep enough to keep revisiting. They will get even better the more you learn and grow.
Well, at least we overlapped on one. dirk, Matilda and Weihenstephaner are really, really good choices as well. And, I stayed a way from BLVD products figuring you've tried them but if you haven't, the Porter may be their best year round effort. Also, Bob's 47 may be their best seasonal - scratch that - it is.


Shag - Good point. Chimay Blue is the one I love but none are terrible. They're just varying degrees of goodness with Blue being far and way the best.

Chimay Blue...fun to watch someone not familiar, slam like its Coors lite grab a second and do it again, see the eyes dull, roll back into the hole where their mind used to be.

But....it is a great brew.

Yeah, not many people realize the little bottle packs the punch.

Another stout I like though, dirk, is Avery's Mephistopheles Stout which has this aftertaste that leaves you craving for more.

I did a personal IPA taste testing this week, and Anderson Valley's Hop Ottin' IPA was the clear cut winner - at least for what my pallet prefers in an IPA.

The hops, while obviously noticeable as the style demands, was extremely well integrated into the ale, creating a very pleasant and enjoyable alternative to what is typically an over-hopped style that leads to single note obnoxiousness in the nose and on the pallet.

Typical American IPA's are reflective of the brash and raw nature of what the brewers think of this style. They tend to remind me of the incredibly over-oak chardonnay's that came out of California over the past two decades. An overall lack of finesse and layering permeate this beer style, particularly in the US, but the Hop Ottin' went against the typical brutish and raw offerings and provided detail, ambience and style.

There are a lot of people that prefer the East Coast style of IPA to the abundantly-hoppy West Coast style IPA. It's fine to flat-out dislike the super-hoppy, unbalanced IPAs. But to say that they are one-note is indicative of one of two things: 1.) your palate specifically can't handle the hop bitterness at those high levels, so the nuances are lost to you (I know a few beer drinkers that I respect who have this particular palate sensitivity) or 2.) your palate just needs time to adjust.

The most complex IPAs are the ones that you might describe as "one-note." Some of the west coast IPAs do amazingly intricate things with lupulin. No one is going to say that Pliny the Elder or Alpine Nelson (or Hell, even Midwest IPAs like Bell's Two Hearted Ale) are one-note.

How long does an IPA (or even PA) taste take to acquire? I'm wondering if it hasn't come to me now if I'm not getting it.





Also, had some Ommegang tonight. Not outstanding but very solid.
