IPAs can be good if the brewmaster doesn't overdo it with the hops. If done right it can be a thing of beauty. Unfortunately most brewers get it wrong.

I've always liked a good lager or pilsner from local breweries. It reminds me of when I lived in Germany. The beer was so good because it was fresh and hand crafted.

I've never been a fan of stouts but the Guiness, Murphys and Beamish I had in Ireland in March were outstanding.

I'm not a sipping guy. Years go I had 2 jobs and by the time I got home, I'd eat and hurry up and drink about 8 beers over 2-3 hour span and go to bed. Get up and do it all over again, to where now, it's hard to just sip.

If it's a Stout like CBS (which I'm sure you're familiar with) then yeah, it's a sipper cause I really can't drink more than a few bombers of those types in a sitting.

I take it you like the alcohol content then?

Doubles and Imperials I do when I want to get drunk quicker or smoking a cigar. I'm surprised you can power through them. Definitely not the types I can down

Stouts are strictly a cold weather thing for me. I've had some serious CBS that were like pothole fillers. I like to keep the stouts basic like Guiness. I'm more a fan of the burnt side as opposed to chocolatey.

You're a fan of true beer. Pilsner is as simple as it gets. But a fresh authentic Pilsner is a thing of beauty. People always regard Pilsner as cheap. That's because north america bastardized it and made it to be cost effective mass produced. True beer drinkers can appreciate an authentic Pilsner.

I grew up south of Boston and was introduced to beer with Sam Adams Boston Lager and Harpoon IPA; I skipped Miller/Bud/Coors entirely. That was...call it 18 years ago and the scene has only gotten more vibrant since then. The US has come a long way in the quality of the brews it produces and there's just too much good stuff to go being a snob about it. Just drink and enjoy.

As for the Big 3 brands, it's all wasted on me. Put a Bud or a Miller on my tongue and I genuninely just can't taste anything but slightly grainy water with some carbonation. That said, if someone puts a free one in my hands I'm not going to be a snobby bitch and turn my nose up at it.

I love Sam Adams. That's the beer that started my journey. It was also the first beer I poured into a glass and didn't drink from a bottle. Still a classic beer.

Yep.

Too me, if I'm going to spend $11.99-$13.99 on a 4pk of 16oz'ers or for a 6pk of 12oz'ers, then it better be at least 7.5abv or higher. Cause most times after the last one is gone, I'm usually hankering for one more.

Seems like the a lot of the brewery's put their best imperials or double IPA's in 4pks and charge $12.99 to make ya buy two of them cause 4 beers aint cuttin' it for me.

The way I look at it though, the brewery right down the road from me charges 6-7 bucks for a 16oz pour at 7-8%abv. So at 12.99 for, it's a pretty good deal for that 4pk. Plus I don't have to worry what I look like while drinking in my man cave watching sports.

Also, I think it's kinda funny how early they release Oktoberfest beers now. My grocery store started displaying them in July lol. May as well just have them available year round. Good ass beers.

I'll ask about that. We don't make an Imperial or double. I do know when I bartend an Imperial is poured in a 12 oz snifter. Mainly due to cost and legal alcohol serving.
The brewer pouring you 16oz is excessive. I'm assuming it's a double IPA and not an Imperial. Most Imperials I've seen are even higher abv. I've seen up to 11%

Oktoberfest is just a label for a good Pilsner or German lager. To me it should be sold year round. It's versatility screams for it

Yeah... most of what I've been describing is referring to DIPA from the brewery. Since their other styles are poured into your usual 16oz glass... I assumed the snifters were 16oz also. I very well could be wrong. The Imperials do usually start at 9% and up here.

One thing I noticed about a year ago, is that when chain sports bars have a seasonal from a brewery, they'll only pour 10oz which totally makes sense from a business standpoint
