I like your style. Breck's stuff never hooked me (though I keep giving it a try) but I love me some Arrogant Bastard (or anything Stone) and Bombay (though Hendricks has taken my interest lately) not to mention a dry gin martini (lemon twist no olive) is a glorious thing. Sad to see it's fallen to the vodka "martini" (which is certainly good in its own right).

To iWill's point: If you're going to beer snob and you don't know what makes PBR better than Miller Lite then you're not snobbing hard enough (no corn adjunct for instance. As a brewer PBR ain't great but it's a solid American lager and there's nothing wrong with it which is more than one can say about most in that style). However we're talking apres here - sure I'd love me some Dark Lord, Barrel Aged BORIS, Pliny the Elder (or younger!), Dreadnaught, Hopslam!, Alpha King, Kentucky Breakfast Stout, Abyss, Gumball Head, Rabid Rabbit, or any assortment of other awesome and delicious beers (not even mentioning many of my favorite liquor) but at the local slopeside bar the chance of them having any of them is remarkably slim. Not to mention that there's something nice about a cheap lager, sun, and Reggae after a long day of hitting the slopes hard (love it at lunch too!). It's like being at a football game; crappy beer just works somehow.

Have you started following the Vertical Epic series from Stone?  I got to try the 8-8-08, fell in love, and now I have a secret stash in the garage next to arrogant bastard.  9-9-09 kinda sucked.  I'm not a stout guy though, and think that guiness tastes like it was left outside for 3 days, opened.  Hendricks is good with that rose petal stuff they do.  I tend to drink that straight, Bombay with a splash of vermouth sloshed around the glass then tossed aside.  It's tough to find a place that doesn't give you a half empty glass when you order this way though.

VE never grabbed me for some reason off the bat so I didn't start collecting it. I know this is my loss. :( I have co-workers who have a good deal of the series cellar'd. Jealous. I saw an 08 or 07 hanging about a while back. I need to snag those when I see them since we're approaching the maturity date in a year or so. The only stuff I have set back is a couple hair of the dog brews, and a dogfish head bruce raton. I guess I have a barrel aged boris but I plan on drinking that and one of my homebrews but that's going down soon too (and the cellaring wasn't completely intentional, haha).

I'd like to try Hendricks more. Perhaps that'll be my weekend treat. I had just tried a bit when out after a friend suggested it. I was really impressed. It's def one of those gins that makes sense completely alone. Nom.

Sooo, I just randomly was in a liquor store out here in CO., and saw Pliny the Elder w/out recalling your last post about it.  It said there was a 2 per customer limit, and there was only one left, so I bought it.  Good lord!  Best IPA i've ever had.  So i go online to check it out, and you clearly can not find it anywhere.  This stuff is sooo good.  I'm looking forward to trying Pliny the Younger.

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned Single Chair Ale from Magic Hat.  I did see Long Trail Ale mentioned. 

 

Between the two, I prefer Long Trail Ale, but I prefer skiing the single chair.  smile.gif

Mirror pond Ale is one of my favorites, along with several others from deschutes.

However, a grey goose martini straight up before dinner, followed by Myan coffee afterwards tops my list.

Btw, Gumbo was for dinner.

For hydration Danish beer: Tuborg for many years until they moved the production to Turkey (what were the Danes thinking) just not the same. Now switched to Faxe also Danish. For drinking can't beat a Rusty Nail.

Had a few of these recently.  Tasty stuff.  Tastier after you swallow it.

Is the No 2 a pale ale? Haven't tried that one.

Since I'm in CA for a while, I've been looking for some brews from the Russian River Brewery.
They've been getting high marks for several of their beers.

Homes.  Just go to the tap and wheez the juice at RRB.  

achem.  sorry to not answer your inquiry.  The No. 2 from Deschutes is technically a white IPA, but since no one has had a white IPA before (very assumptive I know), I'd say it is like a hoppy blonde ale w/ a full bouquet of flavors that vary depending on your tongue.  Very tasty.  

But, back to more important matters.  If you are anywhere near RRB, you need to go there.  If they have Pliny the Elder, buy as many as you can.  Even if you aren't a huge fan, all of your IPA buds will be.

Hot chocolate, because I'm not core enough for brews

Cold spring water from a source right on Route 26 near Sunday River, ME.

Early season..

Late season..

For me the brews and bourbon was an after EVERYTHING beverage.  With a 3 hour + drive most times my apre ski beverage should always be non alcoholic.

These are a few of my preferred apres beers. Heady Topper was typically something I enjoyed at the Alchemist in Waterbury on the way home... but now they are canning it. Score! The Lawson's, you pretty much have to know a guy who knows a guy, so people throw a fit when that comes out of the ice chest. The Hill Farmstead is really growing on me too. It's brewed in the middle of nowhere Northeast Kingdom Vermont, and is nearly as hard to find as Lawsons. I'll also throw down a Switchback or a Magic Hat Single Chair. I refuse to drink #9 unless I get it from the brewery; the taste difference is huge, it's like drinking two completely different beers. I also may have to bring some Zero Gravity Sasquatch to the mountain for the early season this year... just had that last night, and it's scrumptious.

 

Oh, and I'm not opposed to PBR or Narragansett pounders when I'm coming off the mountain, either. Particularly when there's football to be watched in the lodge bar. :)

a hot toddy...that mix of lemon, whiskey, some sugar and cloves just hits the spot and warms me up...then i can hit the beers and junk food

post #80 of 84

Mammoth Lakes Double Nut Brown...such a flavorful beer

post #81 of 84

the local tap beer is always nice.... but when a changeup is needed.  grey goose, OJ, splash of cranberrry hits the spot... or for a little warmth - Tuaca in hot cider!!

Diet Coke on ice in a glass glass (not plastic) -- no straw.

post #83 of 84

when i was still in VT it was either a few Switchbacks at a bar in Burlington or a lot of PBRs at my appt

 

either way, couldn't go wrong

Hot spiced cider for me, thanks.
