    I miss living in CO.

    However, this season has brought back the wonderful, seasonal Bell's Best Brown Ale. MI ain't bad, I suppose.
    I miss living in CO, too, Jeremy....New Belgium's Fat Tire is my all-time favorite beer and, for a while, they had a seasonal called Loft that was just outtasite! Also, Deschutes is available out there and I love the Mirror Pond Pale Ale.

    Re: What beer are you drinking Winter 2008

    And to keep up with the Colorado theme, I've been switching back and forth between some Oak Aged Yeti from Great Divide, Frambozen from New Belgium (one of few fruity beers I like) and Deschutes Jubilale. Avery's White Rascal is becoming my go to lighter beer and I try to keep it on hand at all times.

    I don't drink to excess. But I'll drink to most anything else.

    Phinney Flats Imperial Stout

    I made it this summer (long enough ago that our newly-crowned BOTY 2009 had some of the Pale Ale I brewed the same day when he was our guest of honor at the EBSG), but only just started tapping it this week.

    Beers of 10% or more (I know...malt liquors or barleywines, but they're still beer) should always get several months to compose themselves. I once worked at a pub in the Woodland Park area of Seattle where the owner bought up the winter stouts, barleywines and strong ales put out by the micros that were left after the holidays and let them sit for a June celebration. They were always much better after that aging.

    I am drinking Fat Tire now... a gift from my stocking. I really like Mothership Wit and find La Folie to be an absolutely outstanding beer to have every once in a long while.

    While I think fat tire is really good and worth trying (or picking up a case or two when visiting), I like other micro brews better. I am a huge fan of Alaskan Amber and Moose Drool.
    Hope is subversive, for it limits the grandiose pretensions of the present by calling into existence the possibility of something better.

    Tonight I am drinking Stegmairer Porter as it is cold out and Porter is a great way to forget about the Cold and even though it is not really Expensive it is one very good Porter! It goes good with my Shot of Peanut Liqour and Rye Whiskey washes things down! It is very cold tonight and I have always enjoyed Porter in the Cold weather.

    Getting ready to open a Rogue's Chocolate Stout...and a nice plate of brownies. The perfect combination....

    Boy You Can not go wrong with their Walt Wit and If you get to Phila you can buy it right at the brewery and their Tour is awesome and you can drink as many beers as you want at the Bar in the Brewery as long as you behave!
    I had the tour this fall on a Sat in Nov and tried all their beers and the Walt Wit was so good I bought two fresh cases that were filled about a week before I bought them!
    If You ever get down there on a Sat take the tour it is alot of Fun!

    Re: What beer are you drinking Winter '08/'09

    I hit the Rock Bottom Brewery in downtown Denver today with a friend to try the Dirty Bird, a pale ale aged in Wild Turkey barrels and then dry hopped. Good beer with a great nose. The bartender also poured us samples of the '07 barleywine that has aged 11 months in WT barrels...exceptional stuff. It's definitely a sipper and has intense Turkey flavor.

    After that, we hit the Great Divide Tap Room for some Espresso Oak Aged Yeti. Truly a meal in a glass with roasty notes and lovely hop balance.

    Here at home I've been enjoying Dogfish Head Palo Santo Marron, Sierra Nevada Celebration, Great Divide Hibernation, Abyss...too many to count.
