Well played. I'm a drinking a Hofbrau Hefe right now. Great thirst quencher after a 13 hour day at the office.


That stuff was damn good, I'm not huge on English brown ales, this one was smooth, and more importantly did not come with an aftertaste I find with some in that category.

Not too pricey either, I really liked it.

What else you got?

I've had so many I have no idea where to start. PM me your favorite styles and I can build you a list of the ones I enjoy.

Finally we agree on a beer.

I tried Bell's 25th Anniversary Ale this weekend. Great stuff, and if I had to compare it to anything, I'd say its a mix of Stone Arrogant Bastard with a touch of a Quad. Malty, with dark fruits, a little less carbonation and booziness than the Arrogant Bastard, very easy to drink. There were only a few bottles at the store, so I need to ask if they can get any more in.

Agreed with the Hofbrau comments as I've posted about a few I've tried. Their Oktoberfest is the best and if you like those, do yourself a favor and find a bottle of Stoudt's Oktoberfest. Stoudt's is quickly becoming one of my favorite American breweries and their version of the German Fall Classic solidifies that take.
