Well guys:

good topic!

 

I love good beer,and in france we don't have so much good beer.

BUT i'm a big belgium beer fan!

Trappist belgium beer is incredibly good.

Just taste:

Chimay,la chouffe(my favorite),duvel,la biere des ours...etc etc

 

These beers are the best way to share a perfect friendly moment with all my friends after playing music.

I've been lucky, lived in Seattle before coming to the Bay Area, lots of great local breweries in both places. My wife and I like to vacation in Bend, OR, which might have the best collection of breweries anywhere. Per capita, at least.

+1. Just had a couple bottles of Deschutes Fresh Squeezed at a holiday party tonight, A plug for Bell's from MI: love both Two Hearted Ale and Oberon.

I love a good IPA, but I've also been on a Stout kick lately. There is a local brewery that makes a nice Expresso Stout that is 10% ABV. I have a few of those in the fridge, and Lagunitas Day Time IPA (which is a "session" IPA with lower alcohol), Lagunitas Maximus which is a double IPA, and Kona Castaway IPA all in the garage staying chilled.

You're in Delaware and no shout-out to Dogfish Head? :confused:

Dogfish is one of my favorites! I don't have any on hand right now though. Last weekend I had a big bottle of their American Beauty, it's a great brew.

Love me some Lagunitas. I'm actually kinda impressed that their beer is available in Delaware.

Their distribution in the northeast is excellent. Same for Stone, Bear Republic, and Green Flash, all of whom make outstanding IPAs (and other beers too). Now if we could only get Russian River out here... :cry:

Same here. :cheers:

 

I've toured their brewery (loved the free samples) and eaten at the Dogfish Pub in Rehoboth, Delaware. Can't wait to go back next summer.

A weekly gig of mine is at this great bbq/gastropub about 5 minutes from my house. This past year we've had New England Brewing Company Gandhi Bot, Fuzzy Baby Ducks, Supernaut, Maine Lunch, Maine King Titus, Stone Enjoy By, Jack's Abby Kiwi Rising, Ithaca Flower Power, Victory Dirt Wolf, Victory Hop Ranch, and a lot of other great ones on tap. Pretty decent $ plus free food (excellent) and drink for a two set night with a band I get to hire and music I choose. It's been nothing short of ideal. Did I mention they have a piano? I get stroll in with my Ipad for charts. Certain themed nights have required the Nord, but that's few and far between.

15 years ago I used to play a small club in Reboboth Beach once every couple of months. I would go to the Dogfish Head Pub during my breaks, as it was just a few doors down. MMMM

I don't know how much Boulevard gets out to the rest of the world, but I once played a wedding reception gig at the boulevard Brewery in KC. That was pretty sweet. We usually only get the wheat here in St. Louis, which I like, but they had every variety free on tap that night.

I got out to St Louis about two months ago. Grabbed some Four Hand Ca$h Mony double ipa's. Out of all the stuff I tried out there, that was my favorite. Nice little taproom there too. Not everything they have there is great, but that Ca$h Mony was real good. Reminded me a bit of New England Brewing Company's Gandhi Bot or Alchemist's Heady Topper, but a bit heavier and maltier than Topper. I tried Schafly's and went to Urban Chestnut. They were good, but nothing too crazy.

I'm a serious witbier/Hefeweizen snob.

 

When a bar has Franziskaner on tap, it's a good day.

 

Drinking a Franziskaner on a sunny patio was the right way to start off my first (and so far only) visit to Berlin. :cool:

 

I've also visited the Steam Whistle brewery in downtown Toronto. Great tour, even if the beer is a fairly pedestrian pilsner.

Before I left Washington State for Florida, my band played a birthday party at the Red Hook Brewery. We went on a tour, got to taste the Wort (The beer before fermentation) and taste all of the varieties they had at the time.

 

This was the first party I ever played where we didn't have to worry about running out of beer.

 

Not long after that my wife and I went down the road just a bit to the Chateau St. Michelle Winery, and saw Ray Charles in concert.

 

Lately the best, most commonly available on tap beer around here is Kona Fire Rock Pale Ale. Yum!

Well, this is what i thought before a friend took me to some serious beer

drinking in Paris. I had an incredible Stout done in Ile De France.

 

Just google "biere artisanale paris" to find some pointer to good beer places :->
