I would like to try Old Foghorn but can't find anyone who sells it.


I'm guessing they only brew it a couple times a year.

A call up to the Anchor brewery would give you a heads up as to when they are brewing it again, and where you can gitcha some after that.

The Beer of Danish Kings

After seeing it on the Simpons I was in doubt, but actually drank some at the Orange International Street Festival...a great beer drinking adventure for anyone!

I have both in my fridge right now, left over from a party I just had. I like the Franziskaner more.

If you can find it, be prepared to pay a pretty penny for it. The market down the street from my house has is for $14.99/ 6-Pack

Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Barleywine Style Ale should be out soon :pint:

My classmate's boyfriend is a TV/film producer and apparently he finished up a pilot episode of The Local Brew (their Myspace page), which showcases local breweries around the world. The pilot episode will feature Stone Brewing Company in San Marcos, which I've been to. Not a big fan of their beers or the food of the restaurant, but a cool experience in taking the tour.

Unfortunately, it's not on any TV/cable channel right now as the show's creators are trying to pitch it to the networks. Hopefully it gets picked up cuz I'd like to see what breweries they'll feature.
"Last month I was in the Canary Islands, and I met up with Armada Sur, the supporters group for CD Tenerife. When the subject of MLS comes up one of the first things they ask me about is if I've heard of the Riot Squad and they mention that one of them has a LARS shirt, and describes the gask mask guy logo.

Halfway around the world and I can't get away from you guys?!?!"

I got a few Winter Brews at the store.

To me, the Anchor Christmas brews are the standard I measure all others against. This one delivers exactly what I expected, a complex spicy taste but still satisfying to drink. I love them after Turkey dinner.

Haven't had this yet. I bought it mostly for the wife who loves New Belgium brews, though I'm sure I'll enjoy it. It was described as an American-style India Pale Ale and has 6.6% ABV.



Not seasonal, but I also picked up a Green Flash Barleywine:

According to the bottle, it apparently has "an enormous Pacific NorthWest Hop charge".
It was good, but I liked Red Car's Night Train barleywine style ale better. Old Bob there is about to start making it again soon since 'tis the season.

Finally, I am stuck on and addicted to Bell Haven Scottish Ale. This shit is good.

Interesting, but I think I speak for the posters in this thread that when it comes to beer, cost is generally not the key factor.

If you drink enough you can make up for the price hike with the $ you make back for recycling. :pint:

Just Saying.
"No matter how many time you beat them it's always 'whose the best team in CONCACAF'. Why don't you look at the results? It's pretty clear. That's why they're talking and say what they do, because they can't do it on the field. That bothers them. That being said, all it takes is one result and they're going to run their mouths until the cows come home."

Just to prove I read the article...
This mainly affects the small brewpubs, that don't bottle and order ingredients as needed to make what they serve in the short term. The canning and bottling breweries probably have arrangement for deliveries in the future at set/pre-negotiated prices (aka "Hops futures"). If you are able to recycle it, it probably won't go up in price until far far off in the future.

Phishy or Haggis may have more insight on this though.
