Moose Drool Brown Ale. Much tasty goodness. Didn't know they could make great beer in Montana, but this one proves that they can.

Moose Drool is not bad for a brown ale.

I have to admit liking paler beers ala' Pike's Naughty Nellie Ale.

I liked Pike's Barleywine too. In fact, everything they made.

Moo Brew pale ale from Tasmania is a tasty drop too.

Sam Adams Double Bock. Best double bock I've had, but they only brew it late winter, so if you like that style, get yours now!

I've been enjoying their winter lager. But I tried their winter sample pack; avoid the cranberry at all costs. veil stuff. Black Lager is good too.

Pete's winter cream ale is pretty tasty.

Is it as good as Boddington's Cream Ale (from the tap of course).

Ooh! Scary! Scary! Don't we look mean? You can't see me! But I can see you!
The best (IMHO) was Caffrey's Irish Ale. It was sold domestically but was bought by another company who doesn't distribute in the U.S. I now settle for "Boddy's" when I'm at the pub. That and a nice belt of single malt Scotch whiskey of course.

Robb, pretty tasty doesn't compare to lip-smacking head-shaking MMMM. But it's a very good cost-effective alternative. It's called Wanderlust, btw. Not a winter beer.

In America, the only respectable form of socialism is socialism for the rich.
Had a tasty Shiner Bock while visiting the family in TX last week.

Now it's back to Sam Adams "Prelude" and "Brewer's Choice" ... both quite tasty.

For those who might be interested and in the general vicinity of Reno:

CANFEST - Reno's International Canned Beer Festival (canfestreno.com) coming up 9-Oct.

Named a "top 10" beer festival (http://www.roadtripsforbeer.com/2010/09/top-10-fall-beer-festivals/)

If anyone comes this way, let me know. We could do a SporkUp.

Ooh! I'll be there in spirit, P.

If you're ever in the antipodes, you must try the Monteiths brewery. It's official, New Zealand does better beer than Australia.

Sorry Tony, it's only beer. No spirits.

It should actually be a good time. Sampling glass, unlimited samples, ...

My turn for double posting (no sir, no abbreviations here!)

I do still hope to get down there. The whole long-term-unemployment thing kinda dampens the international travel options for the time being.

EDIT: and now I have *another* cider to add to my list... CIDER GOOD.

Got a six-pack of Sierra Nevada pale ale from the bottlo' the other day. After getting over the shock of import duties etc ($20 for a six-pack! I remember buying a six-pack in death valley for $6 - yep a buck a beer...)

Not as nuanced or awesome of some of the microbrews I tried in the US but damn, it's still a nice tasty beer...
