Water...but only from the aquifer that my well water comes from. Intoxicating in it's clean, smooth delivery of absolute satiated thirst.

Boy, I read the title of this thread completely wrong. I was going to answer "my left one."

youare correct, im actually right now drinking a Mission Shipwrecked double IPA that i picked up in a liqueur store in nevada last week, fantastic!

my two favorite beers currently are Goose Island Bourbon County (which is expensive and nearly impossible to find, and Fegley's Insidious, the former is a porter and the latter a stout, both aged in bourbon barrels.

yum!


Oh no, bourbon barrel aged beer is nearly always well received by me. :) We definitely agree on that, and porter/stout is fine... It's that IPA stuff that I just ever so rarely like.

Geez, that sounds good... Mixed with a bit of the finest yeast and starch or sugar along with a few other random bits of vegetation, heated and left alone for a while, and then carefully and lovingly bottled thereafter, I bet it'd be even more smoother and satiating. :D

a Tui or two, but I'm drinking good old Steinlager at the Mo

The best gin in the universe--Boodle's--is back on the shelf at my ABC store.

Single Malt Peaty Whisky such as Ardbeg and Laphroaig
Duvel, Leffe and similar Belgium Beers
Innis and Gunn (lovely Scottish Beer)
Dark beers and stouts
Absinthe (I actually quite like the effect of this though can be dangerous)

Edited to add a couple of favourite cocktails

Mojito
Savoy.com (a super cocktail made with Grenadine, Absinthe and freshly squeezed limes - looks super and sure hits the mark) - not sure if this is the correct name or not but this is what I always have called it.

I like IPA's too. It's hard to beat a Bell's Two-Hearted.

At home, I usually drink whatever I made last, so lately, that's a nice brown ale or my souped up cider (14%)

In the summer, I like a wheat beer like Bell's Oberon or something light, like Oarsman.

Boulevard in Kansas City makes a great Wheat beer too, as does Freestate in KS


never heard of Bell's, i'll keep my eye open. The big problem with Craft beer is the limited distribution area.

actually we should start a beer swapping thread with beers from our local breweries. i used to have a bunch of those beer of the month shipping boxes.


Bells is the biggest brewery in MI, I dunno if they're distributed in NJ, but I know they have distributors in NY state. Some say Two-Hearted is the best IPA in the world...I just know I like it.

If you're ever in the area, I'll buy you the first one.

Founders in Grand Rapids is also good.

You guys talking about IPA, and stuff. Most of what I've never heard of. My favorites are Sandels and Kukko, both beers.

On the other hand a glass of Ardberg or Laphroaig is to my taste.

- Really good micro-brews (I am currently on an IPA kick)


Try Hop-Nosh IPA brewed by Uinta Brewing Co. in Utah. It's tough to find but very nice!


if you can find these, my fav IPAs

Stone Sublimely self rightous, black IPA.
Stone Ruinten, 10yr anniversary of the Ruination DIPA
Stone Double arrogant bastard, DIPA
Dogfishhead, 90min IPA, not the 120 or the 60, go for the 90.
Loose Cannon Hop3
Southern Tier Unearthly


ETA: I seriously enjoy that you used the word tipple. Awesome.

Ruination, and really most things Stone, are incredible if you appreciate west coast IPA styles. I have nothing but support for them. And speaking of them, if you are more on the malt side, SERIOUSLY pick up their Stone Russian Imperial Stout. It is one of the better offerings on the market and ages VERY well.

I would second anything from Dogfishhead as well; they are always interesting, and regardless of if I really like the brew, I appreciate what they're doing. Their IPA's are nicely hopped but also have a respectable malt backbone.

Oh, did I mention I'm a beer lover?
Yeah, I generally stick to the extremes of IPA and stout/porter, with imperials preferred. I also homebrew.

If you can get it, I'd whole heartedly recommend Odell's Rocky Mountain IPA; partly because that's my hometown brewery (the best one, not New Belgium...) and partially because I love citrus notes and that's just full of them. Also check out Myrcenary by them if you can. Absolutely legit imperial IPA with high citrus. Hop Nosh is def. decent for an IPA but not blow my socks off. If you can get it, awesome, if not there are better offerings out there. If you like the malty beers, I'd also recommend Deschutes Abyss. It has a pretty wide distribution and is awesome, both for initial enjoyment and aging.

Beyond beers, I prefer gin, liking either Tanqueray original or Tanqueray 10 (again, prefer the citrus notes).

Friday night. Still no wine. :(

Still have scotch!

(Hey, that could be a Good News/Bad News entry.......

Oh crap. That rolled over several hours ago, didn't it.....? :/ )

And yes, Spat, 'tipple' is a seriously awesome word. :)

Maybe we should set up an exchange program...

I like the bourbon barrel aged beers well enough, but a while ago, I tried Innis & Gunn Rum Cask Oak Aged Beer. Aged in rum casks...phenomenal.

Oh yes I am a huge fan of that one and even have the glasses to match. Great thing is that most of the supermarkets in the UK seem to stock it.

Couple more beers to add to my list:

Hobgoblin
Exmoor Beast

Now this is a discussion I can get on board with ;)

I'm rather partial to Madeira wine after a vacation there a few years ago. Deliciously rich and sweet. Like sherry's more sophisticated older brother!

Coors Light. Preferably in a can. Allegedly I cannot drink scotch nor whiskey (which I adore). Now I have never understood this but apparently my wife tells me otherwise, and I've been known to wake up with a couple of things that I don't remember. Craft beers are overpriced, and well, frankly to upscale for me. Simple beer, good friends, good conversation. That's a nice evening.
03/29/2014 04:11:20 AM · #46
Single Malt - Laphroaig preferably - with a Cuban cigar.

Guinness. Coors light in cans while I BBQ or out fishing.

The mythical beast, KBC… The local stores have waiting lists of people wanting to buy KBC as soon as it's released. It's the same thing with Bell's Hopslam IPA.

And I don't know where else you'd find a beer's annual release considered almost a local holiday

I'm usually fond of Aussie Reds, but this! This is awful. Jip Jip Rocks 2012 Shiraz Cabernet. Don't do it. Really. Blech.

On the good side, it gets you just as sozzled.
04/10/2014 11:34:53 AM · #50
I thoroughly enjoy Vlasic pickle juice. Hoo-hah! That's about as "sozzled" as I get.
