    I received my nectar of the Gods



    Westvleteren 12, elected Best beer in the world by Ratebeer.com.

    http://www.ratebeer.com/RateBeerBest...ers_012012.asp

    The beer is made by monks in Belgium in ridiculously small quantities and not sold in stores. Ever since it was named best beer in the world a few years back, it's a sort of quest for all beer amateurs. Anyways, this year they exceptionally made more beer for sale so they can pay for a new roof. I was lucky to get my hands on a pack (60€ for 6 bottles ).

    In the end I'm sure it's going to be a great beer, but not worth the money or hype.

    I'm preparing myself mentally to taste it Friday night.

    Seems like a Maudite drinker would like it.
    Yeah we went to the Ommegang brewery two summers ago and tried it. She loved their saison, Hennepin. If you get a chance try their BPA (Belgian Pale Ale). Good stuff.

    She's more into the Belgian styles. Beers you sip from a goblet and can only drink one of before it hits you. I prefer the German and English styles. Beers I can drink 5 or 6 of out of a tumbler or mug. I guess I'm kind of brutish when it comes to beer.

    Finally made it to the tiny Hill Farmstead Brewery in Greensboro Point Vermont.
    Vermont has three newer smaller Breweries - Hill Farmstead, Alchemist, and Lawson's Fine Liquids. All three make killer brews. I've always claimed not to be a hops guy but it turns out I love Double IPA's. All very hard to find in the stores even around here.

    Love Torpedo IPA. Then again I love all of Sierra Nevada's beers.

    I have a few bottles of Saranac's new White IPA. It's almost like a cross between an IPA and a Belgian White ale. IPA-like hoppiness, with a portion of wheat in the grain bill, plus orange peels and coriander added. Interesting beer.

    Sierra Nevada's Ruthless rye IPA is absolutely delicious.

    Never tried it.

    I've had the pale ale, Celebration, Tumbler, Torpedo, and Kellerweis. All are excellent. The Tumbler (their Fall Brown ale) is one of my favorites. Love that beer.

    There was just an article in the WSJ about Rye beers and "Rye-p-as" this weekend...

    What are some other good rye beers or rye p as?

    Goose Island IPA
    Sixpoint Bengali Tiger
    Blue Point Hoptical Illusion
    Ithaca Flower Power

    Goose Island is a Chicago-based brewery. I think their IPA is really nice. The three below it are all NY-based micros.

    I've had Goose Island once, gotta see if I can get it in my local store.
    Had Sixpoint other stuff, will try the BT, had Blue Point others, will try the Hoptical and had Ithaca, but not the FP....


    Thanks for the suggestions. I will check em out

    Blue Point's Spring Fling and Rastafarye are rye based beers. SPring Fling is the spring seasonal offering and is very good. The Rasta is outstanding. I'd give them both a try.

    I am going through a "BEER" infatuation.

    Anyone try any of the following

    Ranger IPA
    Sea Dog Blueberry
    Anchor Steam Ale

    Been visiting this NY style "beverage" store every Friday trying different beers.

    Just noticed that one; and off to the left, just below was a 12 pack of Torpedoes for 13.99. It was a no brainer; $9.99 for the Ruthless 6 pack

    That White IPA sounds terrific. Seranac

    A couple of Pils brought back from Germany by a buddy well worth the experience:







    And this wheat beer which was excellent




    In the Belgian Trappist category had the Rochefort 10. Very good. Also tasted the Rochefort 8 which I didn't like at all (had a licorice aftertaste..).

    New Belgium's beers (Ranger IPA is one of them) is hard to find up here. Fat Tire is their flagship brew, and it's supposed to be awesome.

    I've had Anchor Steam. That beer is a craft beer icon. Basically the whole craft beer "revolution" in America started with that brew. Personally I don't care for it.
