    Moylans Celts Golden Ale – Nice rich flavor without being too bold. A bit hazier than a domestic golden lager. This beer had medium flavors without being biting or intense which gave it a very good “drinkability”. It had a caramel sweetness with a fairly liberal taste of honey and a clean finish. I really liked this one!

    Oskar Blues's "Gordon" was out-effing-standing! I was also really impressed with Lagunitas's "Pale Ale" which might crack the top 5 for my favorite pales. Stone's "Juxtaposition" was pretty nice, although not a hot weather beer despite its classified style as an Imperial Pilsner. It really would have made a great winter warmer, rather.

    I wasn't big on Oskar Blues's "Old Chub", too damn smokey for a Scottish Ale. Their "Mama Little Yella Pils" was great and easy to put down. I also had Kern River Brewing Company's "Sequoia Red" and "Isabella Blonde". Those are two styles I am not huge on, but kick me in the balls, they were ****ing GREAT!!!

    Where are you buying these obscure brews?
    You're in the IE, right? I only know of one decent place in Redlands (whose name eludes me at the moment) to find beers like this.

    Please enlighten me and the others with this wonderful market.

    Thats kinda wierd, because its a malt liquor. Since it violates the Reinheitsgebot, it can't be a Bock beer.

    Good beer, but way too expensive at the Yard House before a game.

    I tried a Unibroque beer the other day- La fin du Monde

    It was decent, and very drinkable. It was light enough for late summer early autumn. The bonus is that its cheaper than comperable Belgians. I think $6 ish...

    Had a few of these last weekend:



    Dogfish Head 90 minute Imperial IPA was outstanding. Hoppy, rich, and very complex. STRONG mofo too. Like a punch in the face. LOVED it.

    LONE.HILL.LIQUOR! It's on 66 & Lone Hill in the Stater Bros shopping center. Hands down, the greatest selection when it comes to obscure beer. You can find Bell's, Goose Island, Russian River, Three Floyds, Deschutes, Jolly Pumpkin, Dogfish Head - the list goes on! Ask for Stan and tell him that Rich sent you in.

    Liquorama is a decent shop in Upland, but is nothing like Lone Hill Liquor. However, Liquorama is good for buying in 6 & 12 packs, both refrigerated and warm. Everything at Lone Hill Liquor is sold cold, and they have more in the way of 22 oz bottles than 6 & 12 packs (although that selection is nice too).

    I do acquire the stuff they don't distribute out here from a few websites:

    www.liquidsolutions.biz
    Buy beer online @ BeerGeek.biz
    Micro Brew Beer of the Month Club Buy Beer Online

    I am sitting on what I'd call a rather impressive Stout/Imperial Stout/Barleywine collection right now that I've built up in the past couple of months:

    Brooklyn - Black OPS
    Dark Horse - One Oatmeal Stout
    Dark Horse - Too Cream Stout
    New Holland - Night Tripper
    Goose Island - Oatmeal Stout
    Gray's - Oatmeal Stout
    Millstream Colony - Oatmeal Stout
    Oscar's - Chocolate Oatmeal Stout
    Schlafly - Reserve Imperial Stout
    Otter Creek - Russian Imperial Stout
    Nogne 0 - Sunturnbrew
    Schlafly - Reserve Barleywine Style Ale
    BrewDog - Devine Rebel
    Deschutes - Mirror Mirror
    Norrebro - Little Korkny
    BrewDog - Isle of Arran
    Stone - 06,07,08 Old Guardian

    I plan to break some of these out during the fall when the weather cools down a peedge.
