    What Beer Are You Drinking? Summer '13

    I rarely drink beer now due to my bourbon problem, but I'm enjoying an ice cold Peroni on this beautiful SoCal afternoon.

    Yuengling Porter. Lots of it.
    If you have anything Michter's or Pennco and would like to sell it or share it with me, please let me know.

    My in-laws brought me one of these over the holidays and I drank it along with Christmas dinner. I thought it was amazing.

    My buddy and I had a few sessions this weekend while our wives played with their kid. From what I recall I had some:

    Harpoon Leviathan
    Stone 10/10/10 (brewed with white wine grapes, very interesting and refreshing)
    Lagunitas Brown Shugga (absoultey love this one, maybe my favorite brown ale)
    Avery Ellie's Brown Ale (this was very good as well)
    Avery Joe's American Pilsner (a little "small" for my preference but well crafted)
    Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA
    Sixpoint Sweet Action (this really surprised me. The kind of beer I want to take to the golf course)

    And capped it with some Four Roses SmB and banana bread with chocolate chips.

    Sounds like a good weekend!

    Don't they make a few different Leviathans? I haven't had it in a while so I'm not sure about that. I do know the ones I've had where the blue label. Good stuff.
    St. Arnolds here in Houston makes a pretty good brown ale. It's a little too sweet to drink very much of though. Do you get that out there?
    I've never tried GTS with any sort of soda. Maybe I'm missing out; but I'm OK with that.

    I've been mostly drinking sours recently since they're mighty refreshing in the heat. I've also been digging MadTree's Gnarly Brown - it's a big (7%ish) brown ale from a local brewery that is canning. The place is less than 10 minutes from my house and the Gnarly Brown is the best beer being produced in Cincinnati right now IMHO. Their PsycHOPathy is also being canned and is available at the ballpark, which is great.

    Anyone else had any beers from these guys?

    A couple of cold bottles of Founders Centennial IPA for the drive home with the car AC on super high.

    Yuengling is a Porter that is cold-fermented as in N. Germany and Baltic countries. Tried some, very interesting. My favorite right now is Deschuttes Black Butte Porter.

    Not a knockout by any means but Ebel's Weiss makes for a pretty good summertime pour,light fruity,sweet and loads of underlying banana in the mix.I would recommend this while tending the grill,because they go down oh so easy,maybe a bit too easy.
