There are many beer nerds on this site, but i'm the first to start a thread! This will be a place for fellow snobs to share experiences, and for normal folk to heap ridicule on our $15 hazy double ipas.

When I go to the beer store, I spend unfortunate amounts of time looking for good beer that I've not had before. Sometimes I leave empty handed. Not today!

The Perpetual was a filler purchase, but is a damn fine beer. Everything else is new to me.

Curious to hear what you think of backwoods bastard.

Also, I've recently been turned onto AleSmith...5/7 beers.

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

this last week I've been drinking A LOT of Einstök beer. They have a Toasted Porter that is a solid 4.57/7 - It's like chocolate toffee butter, and their white ale is 1.9/2 tits. I have a sixer of their pale ale to open next.

Don't think I've ever seen an imperial oktoberfest before. Only in America.

It was good, reminded me of some stronger maibocks I've had.

I'm a big fan of Perpetual - probably my favorite of all of Troeg's lineup.

My biggest disappointment was Troegenator. :(

Interesting. After several sips I liked it, but the pine was too strong.

Haven't brewed in well over a year now. Got tired of 3.5-4hr time commitment per batch.

Also had Growl, a quad by Off Color brewing, last night.

It was good, but not amazing.

Had a bit of Bell's Best Brown Ale tonight - almost stouty in flavor and texture, but not too heavy. I actually enjoyed it.
