They have a beer like that at Racers in Parkville, MD... it's their own brew and it's called "89 Octane" ... something like 8.9% alcohol by vol. or something seriously strong like that!

I will have to agree with a lot of you on some of my favorites;
-New River Pale Ale (Whitlows on Wilson has it on tap)
-Arrogant Bastard
-Bear Republic's Racer 5
-Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and Celebration Ale (you've either heard of or seen these)

And my favorite and by far the most delicious winter brew out there;

Harpoon Winter Warmer (go to total wine and more, but I caution you that you will be extremely lucky to find any left)

Oh and if you like the lighter stuff; I love Stella Artois, a very delicious and smooth belgian beer.

-James

not a micro/macro beer but still good

Mackeson Triple XXX Stout made by the same people that make stella artois and TGI Friday's. Found that really odd since their beer is good but their restaurants aren't.

I will be making some beer at Shenandoah Brewing Company next week. I'll let everyone know how it went and maybe we can organize a group brewing session?

I think we need meets. Lots of 'em. Particularly for we PA folks.

The HR gang seems to get together a lot, but we need to have more in the north!

Forgot to reply to you.

Some people just don't like beer, like some people don't like wine. Or maybe you've had the wrong beer.

I also like wine, and my wife and I lean toward non-dry, sweet-ish reds. We had a very good, Lancaster, PA made Sangria wine a while back. Very tasty.

Dogfish Head 0wnz me. I'm partial to Raison d' Etre, but I have yet to be disappointed by any of their beer. (And then there's the World Wide Stout, *drool*) They're up in Rehoboth Beach IIRC. I have a couple WWS's, and some 90 Minute IPA chillin in the beer fridge.

Magic Hat... I think these guys are microbrew. #9 is the most popular but I got a variety pack and liked most of it.

Finally... Rock Bottom Brewery in Ballston... I am a huge fan of their Hefeweisen and Kolsch. But you have to go there to buy it.

Some friends of mine are planning a road trip up to Troeg's though, so I will have to figure out whether I like their beer...

I picked up some beer tonight since I'm using the kegerator to lager in right now. Legend chocolate porter is a great beer I'm enjoying right now.

Also picked up the troegonator dopplebock and a raspberry stout I will try later. My friends chocolate raspberry stout was my favorite beer I have ever had. Funny too because he said he didn't even remember making it (not a normal thing at all for him). It had a dryness to it that you don't normally find in beer. I tried to make it when I was still an extract brewer and it sucked

Troegs Troegenator - tasty, pretty potent. one of my favorites.
Troegs Mad Elf - different, not my favorite flavor, but very alcoholic.
Victory Imperial Storm King Stout - makes guiness look like Key Light. very alcoholic, espresso like taste and thick texture. another favorite, but more of a winter seasonal beer.
Victory Golden Monkey - not dark, but packs a hell of a punch. spiced beer around 9.4 abv iirc.

ive been to the Troegs brewery a few times, its only 45 mins away. Appalation brewing company is in harrisburg too, id like to go there sometime. id also like to tour the Victory brewery in downingtown pa. i think its less than an hour outside of philly on the PA turnpike

Updated Post #3:

Beer: Troegs Oatmeal Stout
Comments: The tasting notes will have to wait, as they didn't have any cold ones. I've stuck some in the fridge though


Troeg's mad elf holiday ale.
Comments: This is a really good beer. The label says its brewed with "Honey & Cherry", & you can tell. Its not overpowering fruity in a Zima kind of way, but has a definite fruity taste. Before I read the label I thought it was strawberry or cranberry, but I liked it then too. It has a very light (not "lite") beer taste, which mixes well with the cherry. Nice & Fruity. I think this would be a great spring/summer beer - it seems like a great thing to drink when you're just hanging out enjoying some warm weather. Is nice & refreshing. I drank this with a Supreme Lean Pocket Ultra (basically a supreme pizza with wheat dough) and it wasn't overpowered by the food flavors at all, which is a good sign.

Anderson Valley Brewing Company:
Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout
Hop Ottin' IPA

Rogue Brewing:
Dead Guy Ale
Hazelnut Brown Nectar
Shakespeare Stout

The Anderson Valley beers have never disappointed me. Their Oatmeal Stout surprised me in being better than Samuel Smith's. Their beers are true representations of each style. There are no annoying flavor extremes, and they know how to use hops as balance.

That said, Rogue's Hazelnut Brown Nectar is heaven in a glass.

If I could replicate it at home I would never brew anything else.

I don't know if you can get UFO heffeweizen here in NoVA but it is by far the best domestic weizen I have ever tasted. It is all I drink when I am in the Boston area. That is unless I am at the Sam Adams brew pub in the airport.

So I did the whole make-your-own beer thing last weekend - and it was a lot of fun! I would highly recommend it to anyone. The whole process took about 3 1/2 hours but it was a great learning experience. Plus, you get to drink some great beer while you make your own beer!

For those in NOVA who like Dr. Dremo's, this is the brewery that makes their beer so you know they're good.

And as a bonus: about 50% of the customers were female. Right after my group came in, a group of 10 (mostly female) college students came in to brew some beer. So we had some nice scenery while drinking and brewing.

Now I gotta wait two more weeks for it to ferment and go back to bottle. Anyone want to get together for a MAIC beer brewing session?
