    Yeah, a pretty good day. This is what I do instead of looking for a(nother) job.

    I'm currently sipping a perennial favorite: Anchor Steam beer.

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

    I am drinking a budweiser 24ouncer tonight, but planning to go Pliny hunting tomorrow. Curious what everyone's (anyone's) thoughts are on Pliny the Elder? For those unfamiliar it is a glorious beer from Russian River Brewery in Northern California. They don't call it an IPA, I think it is an imperial pale ale, I am sure many here know a hell of lot more about what makes what beer which than I - all I know is I like it. A lot. And it's in and out of stores very quickly.

    After I find some I'll try to do some tasting notes in a new thread. Maybe some for Jubelale also.

    We cannot get Pliny in NJ, next time I'm in PA I'll have to look for it. I've heard great things about it.

    Fat tire ale is about the only non-monounsaturated 'fat' allowed on my diet. Good stuff.

    I purchased a pint of it on draft back in late October and I found that it was nothing spectacular and just a novelty.

    The best part was the neat ceramic goblet that it came in .

    M,
    I've had the Holy Grail Ale a couple of times and it's pretty good stuff. Definitely nothing special, but enjoyable enough..very English (if THAT makes any sense). Sorry I missed you tonight, hope you guys had a good time.

    Since it came in six packs (12 oz. bottles one assumes), that means it's the new, US-brewed version from High Falls (formerly Genesee, of Rochester, NY). The UK-brewed version came in a 16.9 oz (500ml) bottle. Still credited on the label to "Black Sheep Brewing" company.


    I've heard some reports that the beer is entirely different BUT some of that is based on a reported call to the "importer/distributor", Eurobrews, in which they said it's now a "domestic" beer and the caller took "domestic" to mean "US adjunct light lager".

    High Falls is a pretty respected contract-brewer (some Samuel Adams Boston Lager and perhaps other SA beers are still brewed there) and they can brew a pretty nice UK style ale for those that remember the pre-1980 version of Genesee 12 Horse Ale. The brewery once (1930's) claimed to have the "only Burton Union fermenter in the United States" (tho' I'm guess that was scrapped years ago...).
