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?!

They changed the recipe to include 25% sour version (via lactic fermentation) blended in. It's a bit of Berliner Weisse like character that really takes the beer to a world-class level.

Most of their beers are gigantic and very sweet. Their historic ales series is pretty interesting. I really like their Sah'tea and Chateau Jiahu historic ales. They have a lot of beers worth trying. What sorts of styles are you interested in?

most anything is worth a try, but one of their most straight forward beers (imo), and absolutely delicious, is the Indian Brown Ale...

I got my hands on some Dogfish Head Chateau Jiahu last night. I highly recommend this one, golden in color, some honey, grape and spice notes. Low carbonation and very drinkable for such a high abv. Very good shit!

This list is bound to piss off the KC beerists:

http://www.thekitchn.com/thekitchn/b...le+Feedfetcher

Quote:
You know those amber waves of grain? Well, it turns out they can be made into some mighty fine beer. These seven Midwestern breweries show us how it's done.

Erase any ideas you might have of Midwestern beers being only of the Miller and Schlitz variety. This new generation of local breweries are reaching deep into the regions beer-brewing roots, adding some modern twists, and producing some outright amazing brews.

• Three Floyds Brewing Co.
Munster, Indiana
Think of this brewery as punk rock meets brewing.
Beers to Try: Alpha King Pale Ale, Gumballhead Wheat Ale, Dark Lord Imperial Stout

• Goose Island Beer Company
Chicago, Illinois
Brewing up some excellent Belgian-style beers along with classic brews.
Beers to Try: Pere Jacques Belgian-Style Abbey Ale, Honker's Ale English-Style Bitter, Bourbon County Barrel-Aged Stout

• Surly Brewing Company
Brooklyn Center, Minnesota
Cooling tempers with full-bodied and full-flavored beer since 2005.
Beers to Try: Bender Brown Ale, Furious IPA, and CynicAle Farmhouse Ale

• Bell's Brewery
Kalamazoo, Michigan
There's something for everyone in this brewery's line-up of over 20 beers.
Beers to Try: Hopslam Double IPA, Kalamazoo Stout, Oberon Wheat Ale

• Founders Brewing Company
Grand Rapids, Michigan
Go big or go home. These beers don't pull any punches.
Beers to Try: Breakfast Stout, Dirty Bastard Scotch Ale, Centennial IPA

• Great Lakes Brewing Company
Cleveland, Ohio
Singlehandedly saving Ohioans and I-90 travelers from bland beer.
Beers to Try: Burning River Pale Ale, Edmund Fitzgerald Porter, Great Lakes Christmas Ale

• New Glarus Brewing Company
New Glarus, Wisconsin
A little brewery with some big beers.
Beers to Try: Back Forty Bock, Moon Man Pale Ale, Dancing Man Wheat
I had a very hard time narrowing this list down to just seven breweries. (Especially in Michigan. Wow, you guys have some good breweries!)
Give a shout-out to your favorite midwest brewery! Whose beers would you road-trip for?

There's some good beers there, but when I think of the Midwest, I don't think of Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio and Minnesota.

Those are awesome (albeit obvious) breweries. Not a single part of me is pissed off that the author wasn't inclusive enough.

As for the defintion of Midwest, I'm a supporter of the all-inclusive definition. The Midwest stretches from Ohio through Kansas. Why? Because everyone in that span thinks of themselves as living in the Midwest, so why not.

Just popped a bottle of Life and Limb, a collaboration between Sierra Nevada and Dogfish Head. Highly recommend it. Fantastic beer.

One of my top two beer events of the year is tomorrow here in Minneapolis - Autumn Brew Review. 89 Breweries, 345+ beers, 4 hours to drink as much as you want on a flat admission fee. An unbelievable event...

Here's the program, if anyone's interested: http://www.mncraftbrew.org/wp-conten...ProgramWEB.pdf

Has anyone tried any brews from Cathedral Square? I have a Belgian White sitting in the fridge awaiting me.

Also have a He'Brew Lenny's R.I.P.A. 4 pack and a sixer of Schlafly Pumpkin Ale. It's going to be an excellent evening.
