Beer-Thirty, Anyone?

I feel like a Beer Hipster right now...

My favorite brew?  You've probably never heard of it...

During my quick trip to California, I made sure to pick up a couple cases of my favorite beer.  It is called Red Trolley Ale, and is made by Karl Strauss Brewing.  They are a San Diego-based brewer that have a good handful of amazing beers.

Red Trolley, by far, is my favorite.  Woodie Gold is amazing, but RTA takes the cake.  (and goes well with cake, I might add...)

Sadly, they do not distribute into Idaho just yet.  But when they do, I'll be one happy guy.  Until then, I'll just have to load up whenever I go down to California to see my boys.

Oh, and if you're reading this, O Fine Brewers at Karl Strauss, hook a brother up.  I miss your beer, and once in a blue moon isn't nearly enough...  email me at lostinidaho@ymail.com if you know of a way for me to enjoy this brew more often... *cough*
Please Share it! :)

The American beers are no good. If you want a good beer, you have to go European.
Also, bare in mind that beer doesn't go well with weight loss. ;D :P

Best beer for me is Newcastle Ale, when I'm in the mood for ale it's my first choice. The beer that I see drunk the most around CT is Heineken, and I don't like it.

So not being knowledgeable in beer or any other alcohol at all since I don't drink... I've heart that Duluth is kind of a beer town? I know we have our huge Fitgers Brewery/hotel/shopping plaza (just a cool building to walk through) and now one of the Irish Pubs downtown (which I do love to go to because it's gorgeous in there) is it's own brewery, though I haven't heard about it yet.

What's the alcohol content in beer in Idaho these days? It used to be 2.5%. When I first went out there I kept drinking and drinking with no buzz and everybody else was drunk. I came from NJ then and it was like 7%. Idaho used to be big on Oly beer (Olympia). Gross!!!!

Yay for beer!

Brandini. OK, first, every person needs to have a favorite beer. Beer is at the very heart of human socialization ever since the first Neanderthal spilled grain into the water well.

Second, I feel it my obligation to expose you to the world's very best beer, cerveza Carta Blanca. As the designer of my line of FUCK RICK PERRY! merchandise, I feel responsible for your beer happiness.

Cheers!

I like that. Beer hipster. It's funny, nice.

Well if you're looking at Coors and Budweiser and stuff but, if you go out of your way to find the good ones, America is where it's at. Europe has some good ones, I'm a fan of Belgium's beers.

Hehe - love the plea there - nice and straight to the begging point.

Steve Bailey said...

Nice .... I will have to try that beer. But you know what my favorite beer is.... the seventh or eighth one.

Samuel Smith's India Pale Ale is classic.
