    The Taddy Porter is made by Samuel Smith.

    It was one of the original offerings of Merchant du Vin, a Seattle company that introduced a wide range of imported and domestic beers across the country.

    They've got a lot of competition on the shelf now, but in the early '80s having those beers widely available was a godsend.

    Re: What Beer are you drinking summer 2011

    Was out last evening and was drink Sam Adams summer on tap. When the keg kicked it was replaced with Sam Octoberfest.

    After getting over the fact that summer was now over, I gladly finished the night with a few under my belt.

    It turns out that there were more kegs of the Summer Ale that went missed. I was surprised that the Octoberfest was already released. Yes...I checked. It was not a hangover keg from last year.

    Right now I'm enjoying a bottle of Stone smoke porter, which has a very nice smoky flavor to it. great accompaniment to a ground bacon/Monterrey Jack/sirloin burger.

    All this discussion about porter has me thinking of a few other classic American porters--Anchor Steam, Founders and Bell's. I really love these three and would highly recommend checking them out, though Taddy Porter from Samuel Smith is still the benchmark in my book.

    The Founder's Porter is one of my favorites - finished cutting the lawn earlier and downed a Kingfisher - the bottle was 2/3rds gone before I came up for air ... yes, I know, in my younger days it would have been all gone, but, some things do not remain the same...

    I've never had the Founder's Porter, but I like all the other Founder's stuff that I've had (and I was drinking a Founder's Dirty Bastard tonight). I'll have to give it a try.

    I do love the Taddy Porter as well - it's a great beer.

    Seems like it comes out earlier every year. It'll be stale by the time the weather around here is appropriate to drink it. And the winter lager comes out about halloween. seems like they should push their entire seasonal schedule back about a month.

    Anyway, I'm really enjoying Leinenkugels Sunset Wheat this summer. I haven't been a big fan in the past, but something changed this year and I'm loving it.

    So true. I'm almost hesitant to make our monthly trip to Costco, tomorrow. I remember picking up last years SAO at Costco in August. Doesn't seem right when it's 95, outside. Regardless, it remains my favorite Sam Adams seasonal, and fave O'fest release.

    As far as what I enjoyed today...A couple of cans of Dale's Pale Ale.

    Still on a Scottish ale kick: Sam Adams SA, Loch Down SA (from Arcadia Brewing Co. in Michigan) and Founder's Dirty Bastard. Tonight we'll be enjoying a four-pack of high octane Skull Splitter all the way from Orkney. I feel a Highland Park 12 coming on!
