Troeggs is okay. Smuttynose from NH is awesome. Brown Dog (Brown Ale) is super. Anyone in Lancaster, PA area should check out Stoudt's Brewery. Scarlet Lady, Old Fat Dog, and their Belgian trippel and dubbel are great. Weibacher in Easton has some great brews too.

Siper2- Have you been to Klingers near Reesers Summit? Great place to go if you've not been there yet. Also in Carlisle, PA there is the Market Cross Pub who has a great selection.

PM me, we'll have a tasting meet.

My favorite too. Even better from a keg although hard to get where I am (NW DC).

Victory Prima Pils is good too: http://www.victorybeer.com/Beers/PrimaPils.htm (yes I like hops)

I'm down for a brewery tour trip.

I haven't! In fact, we haven't been to any local breweries. I know, that's awful.

I'd love to meet up! My wife would to, she likes meeting clubbers.

Oh, Smuttynose is indeed awesome. (But I'm a NH native, so I'm biased. )

So is Red Hook, which is out of both Portsmouth, NH and Washington state.

"Tröegs Rugged Trail Ale is a unique rendition of a classic English Brown. It has a deep bronze color, rocky head, and prominent Fuggle hop aroma. Toasted amber and Chocolate malts impart a "Nutty" richness and creamy velvet texture."

Some of my other favorites include
CottonWood Low Down Brown: The Low Down is an American style brown ale brewed with pale malt, crystal malt, and a touch of chocolate malt. This medium-bodied brown ale has a distinctive Mt. Hood hop finish.

Cottonwood Pumpkin Ale (unforunately seasonal): Sep-Oct

Apparently cottonwood is owned by Carolina Beer & Beverage Company

Flying Dog Tire Bite: A golden ale based on a german style lager, brewed with imported German Perle Hops.
and something from my home area
Victory Sunrise Weissbier:This unfiltered, Bavarian style ale is true to its origins with all ingredients except for the water having been imported from Germany. It remains unfiltered to feature the tangy, fruity flavors of its unique yeast.


Of course I love many other wheat beers but there are to many to list.

Troeggs Mad Elf was very good, but I haven't tried the Oatmeal Stout.

Sammy Smith's Oatmeal Stout is delicious.

I had the privlege of trying some of the early batches of New River Pale Ale.
It is wonderful, but I still have to put it second to Sierra Nevada Pale Ale ( Celebration Ale, Bigfoot Ale F'N Remarkable)

Dominion Brewery is fantastic. I love Dominion Millenium and this year I purchased Millenium Oak Aged. Wow did my palate every enjoy that beverage.

Richmond has a wonderful brewery "Legend Brewery". www.legendbrewing.com

Also DogFish Head Beer is something to die for. I'm not sure if it's the taste, smell, or your wallet running dry, because of the price. www.dogfish.com

For all of you beer enthusiast who are looking for that beer you can no longer find try this web site. www.vintagecellar.com

They ship beer and supplies to most states and if you live in S.W. Virginia their store is like going with a women shoe shopping. You will never be able to make up you mind on what to buy.

No offense women, just stating the obvious.

Last , but not least for all of the Penn residents, Beware of the I C Light ( Iorn City Beer) It makes Olympia taste like Mille Lite.

Would be a great mid point for another richmond/HR meet

Indeed, Richmond has a few good breweries here. Richbrau has a good oatmeal stout and a "Mean and Nasty Porter" . Hops is worth tasting as is Extra Billy's in Midlothian. Also we can't forget Legends Brewery.

What? No mention of Mickeys??!!!!

Seriously though, I love beer. There are a few home brews (Im from New Haven) and the BAR up in New Haven brews some great beer and single malt scotchs.

You cant get Magic Hat here, which sucks. On the upside, the Farm Fresh is pretty good at stocking/special ordering microbrews. I was elated to see an old favorite there, La Fin Du Monde, a 9% wheat ale that will make you want to slap yo mamma. Seriously though, all the beers from Unibroue in Canada are great, and Bob made an awesome clone of Blanceh du Chambly. Bob is at the top of the list of favorite local brewers! They also carried Newport Storm, which I had forgotten about until some of Duncans friends mentioned it.

I also used to love Ipswich. They used to sell it in big glass bottles, not sure if they have it down here, but it was some good stuff.

Great thread!

My favorite beer is Gouden Carolus Grand Cru of the Emperor from Het Anker Brewery in Belgium. They sell it at Wegmans maybe Total Wine or really nice resturants. Its the best! you should try it. Gouden Carolus

Another good one to try if you Travel is Fat Tire from New Belgium Brewery. It is only sold on the Western half of the country though
Fat Tire

I would be interested in doing one of these brewing trips to make beer maybe someone can arange that....I know Old Dominion does tours im not sure about making your own though

Not local to Mid-A but still good--

New Glarus brewery (WI)- Spotted Cow ale and Uff-da Bock (my personal fave)

I usually try to pick some up when I drive home

Maybe a mid-A microbrew/rare beer tasting meet? Also +1 for the brewery tour or brew your own gathering, lets plan one!

Check post #49. They are the ONLY brew-on-premise place in the DC area.

PM me if you're interested. I can send out a copy of the list of recipes I picked up when I was there.

Are you telling me that the resturants I have been to east of Old Dominion with SS kettles and everything needed to brew beer are for looks? Like Sweetwater Tavern, Rock Bottom Brewery and others?

He meant the only place where the patron can brew beer (which I personally can't verify).

I misread his post then. I would like to brew my own beer and be able to keep it somewhere to go drink it. There are beer brewing kits for that but most frigs aren't big enough to hold it unless you have a keg-erator.

I like the Widmer Hefe the most out of the US brewers. Maybe because I've worked the Widmer stand once at a beer fest.
