seeing bitewerks on this thread is a novelty.
any bud type beer is greeted by euro drinker as crap, special reserve or not.

In Paris, France I remember drinking a can of something that had Tequila in it. The imagery on the can was like a gun-totin' Mexican bandit. It was good!

Was it called Desperado? Tequila flavored beer made in France. They have it here as well. Pretty good

today, post payday, drinking expensive, strong imperial stout.
tastes of marshmallow and goes down a treat.
from tiny rebel brewery, 9% proof, so not as strong as some imperials, but yummy for an evening.as flavour sweet but shallow.

Yeah, that was it. Maybe. It looks like Heineken made it for the U.S. but is or has stopped:

I use to like Guinness Extra Stout but sometimes it just didn't sit well. I like(d) Young's Oatmeal Stout a little more. I'm guessing an 'imperial stout' is higher in alcohol?

Yeah, Budweiser sucks. I only drink it if it's free or the absolutely only thing available at the time.

guiness have seemingly looked to their 'back catalogue' and come up with several bottled stouts/porters. all drinkable and better than the usual guiness extra cild sold via pumps.
imperial stout is indeed generally stronger than normal stuff. believe the name comes from it being drunk at/by imperial russian court pre revolution-initial contact with this brew was as a russian imperial stout and was 11% plus in alcohol.

Melvin Brosaic IPA

ABV 5.4%
IBU 55

the lowest ABV that I have ever drank from Melvin.  had three last evening.  was already a few beers in prior to.  maintained a nice buzz without getting ripped.  A session IPA done right!

just starting and will be drinking the Lush IPA today.  checked the freshness date on the bottom of the cans and it was canned two weeks ago.  super fresh!  this is probably my second favorite beer.  it has Citra Lupulin Powder.  for those that don't know:

Picked up a 6-pack of Dale's Pale Ale brewed by Oskar Blues Brewery out of Austin. 6.5 ABV. It's okay, has a bit of a sweet taste. Not sure I'd buy it again.

Has anyone had beer brewed with bourbon? Saw a 4-pack but cannot remember the name of it. Kinda pricey but I'm curious.

Had a really good sour last evening at Boundary Bay Brewery after having the Inside Passage Ale and a Cedar Dust IPA

Small Talk Holiday Tart

4.9 ABV
6 IBU
9.75°P OG

A kettle-soured brewed with cranberry and cherry puree from Oregon Fruit Products and fermented with Boundary ‘Sourpuss’, the house lactobacillus culture.  dry finish.  served in a Tulip glass for sipping.

Yeah I've had a few, normally I really like them. The slight flavour of wood and whiskey on top is great. Depending on how pricey it might be worth it.

Not cheap, but not pricey either; Goose Island's Bourbon County stout is probably the best Whiskey-brewed beer I've ever had, though this was at least 2-3 years ago. I think they come in 4 packs and generally run 14-14% abv, so a fair exchange in less booze for higher quality.

yeah.  there are many to choose from.  I can highly recommend Bell's Bourbon Barrel Aged Hell Hath No Fury.

Speaking of Bell's, this double IPA is amazing!

That description is what I was thinking it may be like.

I've got another liquor store a bit further away I need to check out. I'm thinking they have a walk-in cooler loaded with single beers. The place nearest me, does not.
