I had a harvest ale once, and didn't really like it. It was the blue label one. I'll stick to the Pale Ale, Wheat, and Celebration.

Your ideas intrigue me and I would like to subscribe to your newsletter. But seriously, this Wet Hop Ale should not be confused with the much hoppier Fresh Hop Ale in with the blue label. It is less hoppy than Celebration, yet full of flavorsplosions. It's amazing. I also didn't care for the blue label one too much...

Yup - that is the more hoppy one. It can be very good but if you get a skunky bottle hoooooo boy watch out. Last time I had that stuff some friends and I were just strolling around SF with a few of those bottles in a backpack w/ ice. It was nice. People confuse the Harvest beers because it says "Harvest" in big letters, but then which beer it is in much smaller letters.

Yep, I was confused by the large "harvest" on the bottle (the fact I was already three beers deep didn't help either). I did find the wet hop ale yesterday though and found it pretty tasty as well.

So, I found out you can only work on an argumentative essay for so long before you need to drink and/or take pictures


Tonight was Big Sky Brewing's "Scape Goat" Pale Ale. Its nothing special. I've had their "Moose Drool" Brown Ale or whatever its called in the past, and it was really watery and lacking flavor. The "Scape Goat" Pale Ale is better, bust still not amazing.

did not enjoy.


It had a really weird creamy aftertaste that I just could not stand. This is only the second beer I've just not finished (the other one being the Speak Easy Prohibition Ale).

Edit: I know its supposed to age for another 4 years, but I'm not going to do that.... however, that is why I'm not flat out saying it sucks, because I did not drink it properly.

Mmmmm..... Beer. Here's a pic of me halfway through my 2nd beer. This was a Weltenburger Helle and it was pretty nice.

What, no love for Russian River?

I could make a top 5 list of just their beers...
Damnation... Oh man...
The Plinys...

And what about the Brothers David from Anderson Valley? You guys are missing out on some steller brews.

And the locals from Magnolia? Their IPA is phantastic! And we cant forget Beach Chalet...

I mentioned both. At Maggies, I like Proving Ground the best of their 3 IPA's. It's $2 cheaper/pint if you get it at Toronado...

I love beer.....

I am currently brewing some right now and am hoping that it comes out as good as it looks. Anyone who is interested in brewing should definately do it. It's a good hobby because you can really enjoy it and share it with others (if you want ahaha) and it is really easy.

My five favorite beers would be:

1. Lagunitas IPA
2. Sierra Nevada Pale Ale
3. Guinness
4. Newcastle
5. Corona (nothing better when sitting on a beach chillin)

I like to hit up Moylans in Novato when I am visiting my dad and head over to San Francisco brewery every other week.

Anyone know where I can pick up some Ringwood brewery - old thumper extra special ale? I had a bottle one day and loved it.
