Ghost River is good it's made locally. As far as the best beer period it's Alaskan Brewing Co. amber, summer ale, pale ale, stout are all good.

I've become a beer snob in the past few years, so I stay away from the "American" big 3 anymore, whether it be for cooking or drinking.


LOL, so what exactly does a "beer snob" drink?

FDXX75


Basically, I shy away from the American style "light" and "heavy" designations. My simple answer is Sam Adams, or better. Lately, my non-Boston selections have been the Ghost River lines, New Belgium, Schafly, and McSorley's.

Rendezvous is no longer serving Michelob on draft, as AB no longer packages it in kegs. They are now soliciting suggestions.

But it's not like they can go wrong....anything is an improvement over Michelob anything.


Suggestion......Stone Pale Ale.......Pass it along


Who makes that? I had some stuff in Boston that was awesome. Knocked me sideways, but it was incredibly good. You'd never know (while you're drinking it) that it's an 8.0% ABV until the next morning. Some brew out of New Hampshire called Long Trail Brewing "Double Bag".

Stone is/was available in Memphis. It is a Colorado beer.

Southwestern Distributors was the wholesaler for it and several other micro-brews. Southwestern wine and liquor has recently been sold and I don't know who bought their beer business.

Have you tried Harpoon? Another great Boston beer.

I'm trying to remember if I had Harpoon while I was up there. I was so excited to be 10 miles from the Boston Brewery, that I didn't think much of the other stuff.

This thread got me drooling so I sucked it up and ordered a case of Alaskan Amber yesterday should be here at the beginning of next week. The best amber beer I've ever put to my lips, haven't had one in a couple 3 years now and it's long over due. Best $57 I've spent in a while.
