    Are you impying I sound like im pointing the finger or being houlier than thou? If yall can handle it then kudos to you. Im talking about strictly for me. I dont know if I could, I see the worse examples and it scares me away. I thought I could handle sex, and became DEPENDENT on it....i'm easily hooked. Now i got a lil 1 to look after at 18. Im not sure I personally could handle it, which is why I will never try. No benefits for me, just a possibility of big trouble in the future

      3. Anchor Steam is very good. I have to drive to this liquor store pretty far away from my house every year just to get a case of their Christmas Ale which has become standard in my house on Christmas. I'd love to try their Summer Ale but have yet to.
      Dude. You gotta try Alesmith, Stone, Pizza Port, and Green Flash. Those are the ones that I've tried, and they are all regarded as some of the best breweries in the country. I've loved every beer I've had from those 4. There are many others, but I haven't yet had the opportunity of trying anything from them. Here's a link I just dug up.

          All I had there that was native to San Diego was Carl Strauss, and it was very not special. Not bad but not special. Their brewery/restaurant was the next block over from my hotel. And they seemed to have it at every bar.

              Huh, well that sucks. I'm don't think you'll be able to find anything in your area from the other 3 breweries I listed, but Stone does distribute to Jersey. I'd recommend any and all their beers. You missed out on this years Russian Imperial Stout though.

                Nice. Dude, I can't believe I forgot about Avery in my earlier post. My second favorite Colorado brewery. Have you tried anything from them?

                  Never had Stone but that gargoyle logo definately is familiar. I've seen it around here. I'll try it. I think the problem was I didn't really go to any of the brewery's. Karl Strauss seemed to be in every bar imaginable.

                    I think it's pretty good which says a lot cuz i dont really like stuff like that, i like to just stick to the Spotted Cow if i have a choice.

                      Nice. If I ever see anything from them around here I'll definitely pick some up.

                        Is that where I was? I was really hammered.

                          Their next limited release is the Vertical Epic. It will be out on 07-07-07. I hear this years version will be a Saison/(some other belgian style.) The idea behind the vertical epic was to come out with 11 beers starting on 02-02-02 and ending on 12-12-12. Then they would be consumed in a vertical tasting at some point soon thereafter. So far, they've all been belgian styles. Anyway, I've only got the 05 and 06. Wasn't around when the others came out. But I thought I'd give you the heads up because those things will fly off the shelf. A bottle of the '02 recently sold for $400 on ebay. Look for their anniversary ale in August as well. Last years ranks as one of my favorite beers of all time.

                            I wonder if those Epics will even reach NJ. We may only get their "core" styles.

                              I'm with you there, I;ve never liked Sam Adams, also with you on Anchor, Anchor Porter is one of my favorites. Smithwick's is probably still my favorite, but being in upstate New York a lot lately I've had a lot of Saranac and their Black and Tan and Black Forest are both excellent.

                                I can typically handle dark beer, but the last Russian Imperial Stout I had (Rasputin's? I'm not sure if that's the name of the brewery, but it's his picture on the label) was just far too much for me to handle. The moment that thing stopped being ice cold it was like trying to drink a loaf of dry bread covered with cough syrup.

                                Ugh.
