Still have a bottle of a local German villiage brew that I 'schlepped' from one of my business trips to Germany. My biz counterpart took me to his village pub and they had wonderful beer and schnopps. It was in the hill country NE of Frankfurt.

Deschutes Cinder Cone Red is out now! Find it at Bevmo. They only carry this once a year. A very good "red ale" if you prefer that type.

We brought some of this back from Hawaii, and I've been able to find it locally in Phoenix, since we drank everything we'd brought back to the mainland.

I've been lagging on updates of my barley and hop adventures- and this thread needed a kick in the butt. Without further ado.....
Stone Old Guardian (2006) This may be my favorite beer. Period. Double Bastard is right up there as well. Typical barley wine style ale kick, with enough flavor to kill a horse. I recommend getting multiplwe bottles to let it age. I had some 2004 last week and it was unreal.
Stone Imperial Russian Stout (2006) - not for the faint of heart, a typical heavy stout with coffee/chocolate tones and dark enough you can't see through it even when it's backlit. If you're a stout lover- don't miss this year's!
Ballast Point Yellowtail Pale Ale - Not too bad for a pale ale. Not necessarily my #1 choice for a pale ale, but it's in the top 5 pale ales I've probably ever tasted. Good enough that I plan on trying Ballast Point's other brews.
Bear's Red Rocket Ale - this stuff was friggin' awesome! If you're an IPA lover, I would recommend this in a heart beat- lots and lots of flavor.
Boontsville Oatmeal Stout - Ummmm, I was under the assumption this was Boontville's best brew. Save the money and get two Stone Imperial Stouts, a Rogue Shakespeare Stoute, or and 8 Ball stout... all of which are better than this weak attempt. Seemed closer to a porter. Young's Oatmeal stout and some of the organic brews blow this oatmeal blend out of the water.
That's all for now, this next weekend our adventure through the land of barley and hops continues.

I recommend the sweet nectar from Belgium known as Hoegaarden. Delicious!

For a very nice pisner, I recommend Quilmes. its from Argintina and goes great with any Mex/Latin style food.
Availible at Bevmo in Pasadena for sure.
