It's hard to find strong beer like that.

I wish i could get some Dogfish Head here. Seems like great beer by posts i've seen here. Maybe i'll have a chat with the manager at my favorite booze store. I've known him long enough he might be able to pull some strings. {#Cheers}

 
If you like Ales like I do, they are your brewery imo.

I really love the Ancient Ales series from Dogfish Head, great concept and some great ales.  I am very fortunate to have a beer store that carries them all as well.  Here are the latest ones in my fridge, not all from the ancient series, but they are all ass kickin' ales:



These beers are no joke and should not be drunk by ANYONE. {#Lol}{#Drunk}

I have tried thousands of different breweries and concoctions over the past 30 years or so and I just keep going back to Dogfish Head, they get me!  They also have so many varieties of Ales in particular that I may never try them all, but I will endeavor to perservere, this is the latest:


I am usually skeptical of fruit and beer, but Dogfish pulls it off flawlessly.  Their Aprihop may be the best tasting beer I have ever had.

mixing up a 6 has been here for a long time but I have never done it
I do however buy a couple of singles at a time and they go for $1.89 to $3.25 and it's no big deal because if I saw the same thing at a bar/pub/resturant I'd pay 7 bucks for it, plus 20% tip

That's what I mean, yeah. I mentioned it to another store owner and he said it's a terrible headache, yada yada lots of reasons but I'm never going to buy a 6 pack of most random oddities without trying one sometime, so I think it's a great way to introduce some new stuff, plus clear out older stuff. And it's $11 vs. getting a 6 pack of a known quantity. I see people loading up with Shock Top and Corona and just shake my head. No, people: You put the Dead Guy in there, the Hop Rising, some of the tiny micros that go for $12/6. They lose money on me, but make it up in the long run with the dopes getting Bud.

Last time we were in Seattle, we went to a Belgian-themed brewhouse, with many sours on tap. I loved the one I had (brewed in Pete, I believe), but no one else cared for the ones they had selected, and neither did I. Don't ask me the name of the venue or of the sour I liked. That was in 2009 and those brain cells have long since vacated the premises.

Had a sour a few weeks ago. My first one that I remember. Couldn't finish it.

Of course you could just use hops to make the beer astringent and hoppy.

Can't reply to Mary's post for some reason but I remember her describing Shiner as tasting like club soda with a brown crayon dissolved in it or words to that effect, so a recommendation for anything from them is to be taken seriously

I can't reply either so I'll just use this.

Saw the grapefruit beer today at the store and thought about it, but I don't like grapefruit by itself so why would this be good? But they had all the Shiner fruit beers on sale so I scored some Strawberry Blonde and it's...ok. Nothing like as fabulous as New Belguim's Frambozen or Leinenkugel's Berry Weiss or a real Belgian Framboise or Kriek or Peche, or the 406 Peach Ae I had Tuesday night at the Museum of the Rockies Hops and History event, it's just kinda...ok.

You can really taste the strawberries, which means you taste less of the boring industrial beer underneath, so it's got that going for it.
