i just went through every page and got a good list of 14 beers to try. every saturday i'm gonna hit the beer distributor and cop 4-6. i used to get the $10 six packs of Brooklyn or Sierra Nevada but after trying Founders a year ago i've been trying to taste new beers. so far Founders Double Bastard if my favorite.

last weekend i tried the Delirium Nocturnum which was okay but the Noel was better. for $4.35 each i was disappointed. also had Left Hand Milk Stout and Dogfish Punkin Ale. I don't see myself buying any of these again. they were good beers but i'm looking for mainstays in my rotation.

my first trip to the beer distro was overwhelming. too many beers to search for by name so i try to remember the labels. prices were high. Mikellers were $6.90.

i'm in nyc so there's no Pliny here but is there a similar beer i can cop? someone mentioned Hop Stoopid but i don't think i saw that at the distro.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_and_Tan
scroll to the half & half section. order one of them. depending on the competency of the pub/bartender, try something that will layer. getting a botched black and tan is especially crushing, if not even just for the lack of 'wow' in the murky mess in contrast to the... contrast of a legitimate layering.


I rarely drink beer anymore. If I do, it's something light like Steamwhistle, Granville island, Asahi, or PBR(on the cheap). During BBQ season I tend to grab craft singles every now and again, but I don't think I could name a specific one. At bars I have the tendency to put too much faith in the bartenders ability and end up with glowing green Tom Collins(bar lime? usrs?), or a bright red Manhattan(made with Canadian 'Rye', puke)

ask for a black castle, or a black and tan. guinness poured over new castle, or bass. Pretty solid, especially if ur not yet big into good brews.

i Had a couple of these the other night. Pretty damn good.
And I also had some of a laguintas imperial stout or ipa. It was kinda sweet and fruity.

very good ale. for a 9.2% beer, you don't taste the alcohol. Plum, grape flavors and notable yeast on the bottom. i'd like to try the Rochefort 10 and St Bernardus abt 12 next.
