It's known as smokebeer, and it's amazing. It tasted like a smoked steak or some jerky. A very full, filling and rich beer. Try it, without reserve, if you have good taste in libations.

This thread shall now commence to discussion of good beers.

Has anyone been to Thirsty Bear in San Francisco? And if so, has anyone tried the vanilla beer? I really want to know what that's like.

Never tried that one, but I have enjoyed this:

Sounds pretty similar in taste, but it's hard to handle more than a couple. It's a very strong and distinct flavor.

I had one of those last night. It's fantastic, but it's not the same flavor at all. The Smokebeer is so bizarre. My roommate and I figured it'd be like the Porter. Nope.

i had vanilla beer last year. there was a michelob gift set on sale at my roek at the time so i bought it. i'd say that it's a very creamy beer. almost sweet. not really a good creamy though. i prefer the chocolate of the two in the set.

I had an Alaskan Amber Porter when out Friday night. They currently have it on tap at Papago Brewing Co, for any Phoenix people interested. I really liked it.

I also had a Wells & Young's Oatmeal Stout.

Delicious.

And yesterday I had a couple of these, in the bottles.

There is some spruce flavor but it is not a full-fledged Spruce Beer.

I don't know if I'd like beer that tastes like jerky. How do they make it that flavor? I haven't been to the Thirsty Bear. I will google it. Vanilla beer sounds pretty delicious.

According to their site, they smoke the malt before they brew the beer, so it gives it the smoky flavor. There's a german Brathouse in San Francisco that serves that beer, so I might hit it up while I'm up there. And, my roommates and I are going to Thirsty Bear now. Have to try vanilla beer.

I'm heading up on the 16th, and I'll be there through the 19th. I told Pot that I'd better be meeting up with youse guys at Malkmus. Andrew said he'd give me a call too, so maybe we can have a group love-in or something.

I want to go to BevMo and buy strange and delicious beers. I have never been, I have only heard of its glories. I keep thinking of them as mostly having hard alcohol. This changes everything.

We could do a board BevMo field trip. I'm always down to go there and spend moneys.

We ate at Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach last night - good food, good beer. If it's Belgian, it's good. I had a Cabernale and a Vanilla Porter. Yum, yum.

Wheres the beef?

Bevmo is the mecca of rare libations. Kinda pricey. But there is a strong chance they have it there.

Chimay Grand Reserve. A great trappist ale made by monks. It's expensive, but drink the whole bottle yourself and see what happens.

Chimay is overrated. Especially the Grande Reserve. Maredsous 10 is much better. If you go to bevmo pick up Hobgoblin Ale. It's in the English section. Anything from Witchwood brewery is great. Hobgoblin and Fiddlers Elbow are the most accesible.
