    Re: What Beer Are You Drinking? Spring '09

    I recently returned from a trip to upstate New York and visited the Cooperstown Brewing Company in Milford. I picked up a six pack of each of their offerings but have been particulary impressed with the Nine Man Ale. Goes nicely with Elmer T. Lee, I might add.

    Beer is good, beer with a friend, better.
    Where is the Copper Canyon - I haven't heard of this one?
    I had a bottle of Dragons Milk from the MI New Holland brewery this weekend. Dark, malty, lightly-hopped. Highly recommended.

    Re: What Beer Are You Drinking? Spring '09

    I did go for an eating and drinking day trip to Stockholm yesterday and had some good beers. Mostly Swedish micro but also Titan IPA and Goose island bourbon county stout. I believe Monks café is the only places were they have this stout in Sweden. They give you a chocolate truffle for free when you order it and it tasted as usual very good. When I have had it 2 or 3 times before I think it was about 11 % alc but this time it was 13. I think it must be very craftsmen like when the alcohol level differ that much between different batches.

    I had a Ramstein Maibock last weekend. Ramstein is a wheat beer brewer based in NJ. I had this one on draft and it was excellent. Really nice beer with lots of great flavors. I need to try more of their beers but they are a bit hard to find even in NJ.

    Ain't it a b*tch, too? NJ- one of the smallest states in area (so distribution shouldn't be too hard) yet one of the largest in both population density and per capita income (so, lots of potential customers for craft beer) but with only 5 actual craft breweries (as opposed to brewpubs) - most have very limited available throughout the state. In central NJ, I don't think I've ever seen High Point or Cricket Hill beers on tap, and Climax is pretty rare, as well.

    A new "craft beer bar" (or, at least, an attempt at one- they've gone so far as call themselves a "microbrewery" even tho' there's no brewing on site- The Cellar Lounge ) opened in Hamilton, NJ. When I suggested to them (over on Beer Advocate) that with 15 taps, they should concentrate on getting some NJ crafts, the reply implied they'd consider getting a Flying Fish *or* River Horse beer. In the meantime they have 3 different Magic Hat beers on tap, and 7 different A-B-InBev beers. (And, yeah, A-B's got a brewery in Newark...).

    Luckily by me (Morristown area) I have a few options within driving distance. I can get a lot of good micros on tap and have great selections of everything available to NJ at local liquor stores. I usually find River Horse and Flying Fish but rarely any of the smaller ones. Don't know why.

    Thumbs up Re: What Beer Are You Drinking? Spring '09

    Picked up a large bottle of Lagunitas Hop Stoopid Ale. Enjoying it very much, right now. Very "piney". It's very chewy. Kinda rye breadish. Extremely long finish. This is seriously good beer.

    A local brew from Hangar 24. They are using local ingredients and this Orange Wheat expression recounts the Citrus industry that used to dominate the Riverside area. Refreshing and quite easy to drink.
