    8 Beers That You Should Stop Drinking Immediately - Banoosh

    all the more reason to avoid the lite beers, but too bad about Guinness. I didn't think Ireland used HFCS at all.
    I BELIEVE I'll have another beer!

    The use of isinglass as mentioned for Guinness might give a yuck factor to those who don't know what it is but I don't think there are any health implications related to it. If someone knows anything different let us know. To my knowledge isinglass is used as a filtration agent.

    Meh. Irish moss aka carrageenan (seaweed) and isinglass (a form of collagen derived from fish bladders) have been used to clarify beer for centuries. Articles like this drive me nuts. They might as well have mentioned chemtrails and fallacies about vaccinations and autism. Of course the beers highlighted should not be drunk - but not for the reasons listed. They all taste terrible (if they have any taste at all) - shouldn't that be reason enough?

    If Stormy says I can still drink Guiness, then I'm okay.


    On another note. Picked up a case of this year's Samuel Adams IPA-Hopology. Was sad to see they did not bring back the Baltic IPA. Replaced it with a Rye IPA. I am going to start with Third Voyage which is a double IPA.

    Has anyone here tried Firestone 805? They had cases of them at Costco, but was leery of purchasing without input from others. Firestone is very hit and miss.

    I'm a huge fan of Firestone, but 805 is their weakest beer so it's shaming the area code IMO. It's being pushed to try and capture the Blue Moon/Shock Top drinkers who want to venture into "craft beer". It's a blonde ale, low alcohol so also aimed at the emerging "session" beer market, i.e. you can drink a a lot more of these instead of just 2-3 Double Jacks. Where have you had a "miss" from Firestone? I think all their beers are fantastic - except for 805. But that's really b/c I don't care for low gravity blonde ales.

    DBA to me is way overrated. An average beer at best. Union Jack IPA isn't consistent. Same thing goes for Wookey Jack.

    I'm glad I put the case of the 805 back. Don't mind a good Blonde Ale, but they are hard to find.
