    I'll have to say that the Ruination IPA is quite bitter with a little bit of an aftertaste. not to knock the heavy ale, it's a great brew, but I'd prefer an ABA over it.
    I BELIEVE I'll have another beer!

    A couple of things.

    I am all over the LGK beerclub! Great idea Doug!

    Pyramid is not one to be missed. Their Apricot Ale is unique. Not to the standards of all the other beers mentioned here but not a bad brew. It is really bizarre taking the first whiff of a newly opened bottle and smelling apricots! If you don't like apricots don't go there. But if you do you won't be disappointed.

    I agree. I was in Seattle last summer and for the week I was there it was 95-97 degrees. I hit the Pyramid brewhouse right across the street from SafeCo Field and the Apricot Ale was nice in the heat.....

    Man a Pyramid Apricot Ale off the tap? That must have been nice.

    Also does anyone else notice a trend here? Seattle and good beer? I have family and lots of friends there so I am biased but there is some outstanding beers that have been developed there. Red Hook was absolutely great before they went public and were over exposed. That beer was a legend in Seattle for awhile but then they went public too quick. I think Galley and DougW8 know of what I speak regarding Seattle and beer. I would even suggest a trip to the city just for the beer tasting. It would be worth it.

    I think the beer club idea is a very good one. We could pool resources and buy 6 or 7 cases of choice brew at a time knocking the cost way down. This is really the only way to get these good beers down this far south. Let me know about interest. Thanks.

    I loved Red Hook. I recently read that they closed their old tasting room. Shame. Seattle and Portland have a ton of great microbrews. Must be the rain that makes em want to brew?

    Off the tap was actually the first time I ever tried the Apricot Ale. It was very nice especially in the heat. Nice and crisp.

    I loved that place. Right across from the baseball field so I was able to go over to the brewhouse grab a few beers then head to the game. I actually caught three games while I was there for the week. It doesn't get much better than beer and baseball......

    There was a lawsuit over the name. Budvar had been around for a few centuries. Anyway, budweiser is awful stuff. They use rice malt in their brewing process to cut down on cost. That's sinful!

    If you can get it fresh, on tap, in the Bay Area, Anchor Steam is a mighty tasty brew.

    My favorite beer is no longer available in the states...



    That is some tasty stuff!
    And thats how you get ants!
