Cans are easier to store. Bottles can break and take up more space. They also might get a deal on cans vs bottles. They could also just prefer cans

I don't blame them, they're more practical.

All I've been wanting to drink lately are all the lagers this state has been pumping out. They're too damn good. I'll pick up a pack of the summit when I hit up the liquor store later. Stoked to have the Keller pils in my fridge year round soon though

An off flavor characterized by a sulfuric, skunky aroma, typically due to a reaction between hops’ alpha acids and sulfur compounds in the presence of sunlight or electric light, indicating the presence of 3-methyl-2-butene-thiol. Clear, green and blue bottles are most at risk for lightstruck flavors. Also called "skunky."

I just drank a Coors Light last night for the first time in a while and I was pleased, I'm not a fan of that style of beer, but I think Coors Light is the best example of it. I can see myself drinking it if I'm at a barbecue and it's hot out.

Bud Light just tasted like seltzer mixed with Budweiser, I wonder how it's more popular than Coors Light or Budweiser

Let us know where you are too. Regional and local breweries can have some rockstar beers, and everybody has at least one IPA to try.

>>9984683
Not really. Everybody will have their preferences, whether they prefer hops, malt, fruitiness, how refreshing a style is, etc. There was a "widely distributed US craft breweries" tier list a few generals back that was sort of okay, but if you're asking about styles, there are gonna be great examples and horrible examples of each one.

I'm from central Ontario and the only ones I've tried (I think) are from relatively local breweries. Amsterdam Brewery's Boneshaker, a couple from Hop City, and one from Flying Monkey. Of all of them I think Boneshaker I liked the most, but the others all have an extremely overpowering bitter grapefruit flavour. I know ipas are meant to be bitter but damn

(It has been probably well over a year since I've had any of them though, so my memory isn't that good)

It's not the style that's the problem, I had a couple IPAs that were actually good. It's just like with hot sauces though where a lot of them don't go for a good flavor and just add a bunch of capsaicin so they can say it's super spicy. A lot of IPAs didn't go for a good and balanced flavor, just a high IBU because some people would force it down and then make fun of other people who didn't want to drink them too.

Because the machines do have probabilities of having faults in them when it comes to labeling. For example maybe 1 in 10000 bottles might come without a label on.

So if you are feeling extra lucky tonight, you should buy a lottery ticket and drink that beer.

My GF doesn't like beer at all and especially hates IPAs. Had her try several, including Elysian Space Dust (my personal favorite), and the only one she liked was Deschutes Fresh Squeezed. She was actually kinda surprised by it.

Don't think too much about it, though, it's hard to get into IPAs, they're not for everybody. I consider myself lucky. One of my friends actually thinks I'm full of shit, that I pretend to like hoppy beer, but there's literally no way to convince people like that.

Either way, based on my GF's experience, my go with Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA. Less bitter, more flavor.

Best advice I can give you is to pay attention to:
>IBUs
>which hops
>which additions (early, late, dry, etc.)
>which hops used for each addition

IPAs are about as prolific in range as beer is to itself, subtle or no. Take it slow, bro.

Had this last Friday, tasted like I was drinking a heavy shandy with heavy cherry notes and tasted like cake. Friend who's only getting into beer thought it tasted like lemonade. Would've thought it was around 5.5% ABV if I didn't look at the label.

>>9984842
>>9984862
Boneshaker is a good brew, but I feel it's a bit overhopped in some batches that I have tried. When I think overpowering, I think Boneshaker.

Haven't tried too many Ontario IPAs, but one of my favourites that are also consistent are the ones from Great Lakes Brewery, like Karma Citra and Octopus Wants To Fight. Flying Monkeys does good IPAs, and Beau's last year released their flagship Full Time IPA, I suggest checking that out, it's very solid.

>>9984789
thanks for reminding me to get that, tried it years ago and was intrigued by it but never had it since. Rauchbier is a cool style.

>>9985292
Wait until you try St. Bernardus Abt 12.

>>9987255
I think Leffe is a good intro to get into Belgian styles, or abbey styles in general. Shame it's made by AB InBev. Very reasonable price too.

Has anybody tried beer from the trappist brewery in Massachusetts? Wondering if it's comparable to the Belgian trappists or worth picking up, since I actually visit Boston a couple times a year and don't have the means to go to Belgium lmao

You mean Spencer Trappist Ale? I've tried it, it's a solid 7.5, quite surprisingly light on the mouth feel. But I feel it's inferior to stuff like Rochefort or Westmalle. Wouldn't mind drinking it if given it to me, but wouldn't earnestly seek it out or buy it again methinks.

Question for you Euro drinkers out there - can you order beer online and not get fucked over with taxes and shit? Primarily Belgian beers.

if you're into Belgian pales, then you'll certainly enjoy it. It has the spiciness and peppery notes that you can expect from an abbey ale. I just thought it was a bit thin after being spoiled by Belgian Trappists

I bought the 6 bottle mixed pack back in October, loved every beer in it. Love it so much that I bought the 750ml corked Abt 12 on Friday just to try it again. Shame they don't sell the Oak-Aged or Christmas Ale where I live.

Fascinating how these sort of beers apparently get better if you age them in your fridge, never knew beer could be stored for so long. The 750 ml I bought has a best-before date of June 2021.
>>
>>9988021
Yeah, but you're usually looking at 25€+ just for delivery and it's per-box which can hold 30kg. Still, if you're ordering from the source or there's a sale it'll come about the same or even less then if you bought beer locally. Retailer margins re a bitch.

To stay on topic I found Benediktiner a perfectly drinkable dark beer.
>>
>>9988021
Swefag here. The monopol has moste belgian avaible via online order. It's not that expensive since taxes are mostly for hard liquor. Last time i bough a 6-pack of 75cl ABT12 it was like 360kr (36€) for it all.

Trappistes Rochefort 10. Very good but not a beer according to the 1516 Bavarian reinheitsgebot. The brewery adds candy sugar and granulated sugar during the brewing process. Nonetheless, 10/10 'beer' imo.

>>9988034
The original Pilsner beer from the city of Plzeň in the Czech republic. Urquell translates to "ancient spring/source" Among the best mass produced beers. However, and this is not a unique problem with Pilsner Urquell, but the beer can give an unpleasant bitter aftertaste back in the throat and it takes a very long time to recede.

>>9988047
Excellent beer but same issues as with Trappistes Rochefort. Not really beer but 10/10 nonetheless.

The Belgians dont care and that's why we have such a variety of fine beer. Germany was once a major beer superpower and the law was set in place to protect the consumers. The reinheitsgebot was probably the worlds first consumer protection law. Many people appreciate the art of crafting unique beer within the boundaries of the reinheitsgebot.

>>
>>9988228
keep in mind that reinheitsgebot never had anything to do with "purity" and was only ever designed to stop brewers from using any grain that was useful in bread making at the expense of beer quality and diversity. Barely just happened to be shit for bread, but the southern german feudal overloads wanted to keep the wheat, rye, and oats for bread to artificially lower the price of bread to keep the peasants happy.
Later on during the days of german unification in the mid 1800s the Bavarians insisted on keeping the law as a bit of economic protectionism as brewers in the North of germany and the low countries were much less likely to be making all barely brews at the time

The whole "beer purity law" nonsense is mostly just marketing spin added much further on down the line, but many modern germans actually do believe the marketing
>>
>>9990184
The German reinheitsgebot saved millions of lives unlike eastern Europe and Russia where millions starved to death due to economic malpractices by Jews who profiteered by using the potato harvests for vodka production. At the same time, the reinheitsgebot acted like a consumer protection law by standardizing the beer production. Good on Germany.

If you don't have the palate for IPA, you don't. It's not a huge deal, man. You definitely won't like space dust. If you really want to get into them, start with pale ales. Sierra Nevada is pretty safe, then spread out from there. Try to look for more dry-hopped ales, they're usually the most flavorful and you can pull out a lot of citrus. You may get a taste for bitterness after a while.

All Day is a good light beer, that it is. It will not change your life. I am more partial to PC Pils but it is summer only, good session beer.

Chimay is a decent stepping-stone to get into Belgians, and I think Chimay 750cl is quite nice but it costs $15 where you live? Here it costs $7.50.

Glassware makes a slight improvement to the mouth and nose of the beer, I think it's a worthy investment if you're going to get more into Belgians. Some mixed-packs sell it included.

You should try Blue Chimay, but stuff like St. Bernardus, Westmalle and Rochefort I think are much better than Chimay.
>>
>>9999168
Houblon Chouffe is my favorite. Best of two world's with that hoppiness and Belgian yeast. I like how they're not holding the bitterness back and try to be balanced and discreet or something.
I haven't yet been able to find and try McChouffe, their Bock or their new Sherry beer though.

Ive had some local chocolate/espresso stouts recently that completely sold me on darker beers. is there a good brand that i can actually find at a store that tastes good?

To this day Blue isn't really my cup of tea (or beer) but you should try it anyway of course and decide for yourself.
As for recommendations Westmalle are good, many from La Trappe are good and on the cheaper side. Bock, Puur, Dubbel for example.
Engelzell Benno is great. Gregorius is decent too.
I haven't had the kingpin of Trappists westy XII but it's considered great. Chimay doree goud remains the best Trappist I've had. It's divine.
Also there are many great Belgian Abbey beers that aren't true Trappist like St Bernardus for example.

Got my extra booze back from my friend's house. 4 Mickey's grenades, a 40 of King Cobra, and two 16 oz cans of Beast Ice.

I buy this once a year. Sadly, the monopaly requires that i buy 24 at a time. It costs me 96€ to do so, but it's worth every penny and i drink one every friday. Sadly, 9000 was a huge let down. So i just drank 4-5 of those each friday instead of buying other beer.

It's not even close to the regular one. Spend your money on other beer unless you just want to try it. It's very booring for a quad.

Dont age in the fridge if you can help it, it will slow down the active yeast a bit much. cellar temp is preferred.

Had these last week. Vengeful Spirit was a little disappointing (but still good), but the other two were ace.

Stone's Delicious IPA is a better alternative, also their Enjoy By... series. Come to think of it, they're pretty heavy into the IPA's.

Very white. I'm drinking the Cobra now. When I was buying this the guy at the liquor store said he didn't need to card me because only decrepit old men buy this stuff. King Cobra is very mild. I don't think any standard gravity malt liquor has any harsh taste. Even some of the ~8% ones like Hurricane HG are pretty mild. But there isn't any real flavor. Just a malt and corn taste with lots of sweetness.

Ritual Brewing Co. Hop-O-Matic IPA

It's a bit underwhelming but what it lacks in complexity it makes up in smoothness. I'm drinking it straight outta the bottle and there's hardly any carbonation. Be careful with this one; down the gullet it goes easily.
