I think my brew stand will be based on this one. I like the footprint when storing

:cheers: Beercuer you have been on a mission finding new brew. I did a search on that beer it is from the Pabst brewing company it is 4.6 ABV. From my research this is the recomended food pairings for that beer. Cuisine (Barbecue, Indian, Latin American, Thai, Pan Asian) Cheese (peppery; Monterey / Pepper Jack)
:bbq:


Thanks, Wiseguy! That food pairing sure makes perfect sense to me. :cheers:
Got beer???

Geez. I figured I'd just see a bunch of specialty and micro brew beers in here. Remembering where I am, I should have known. Anyhow, I like a good Sierra Nevada. Haven't gotten to the point of mucking with beer making equipment. Maybe someday, but I'd have to give up something else. No room for another obsession!

Thanks for your continued input, Comrades! I'm back with another one. It's called RedTrolley Ale, handcrafted by Karl Strauss Brewing Company in good ol' San Diego, Californy. Won the Gold in the World Beer Cup for 2010 and 2012. 5.8% alcohol. Call it an Irish Red, if you will, and it is brewed with caramel malts.

I'm thinking for those of you who enjoy George Killians, you[ll enjoy this all the more! I've got to make this one of my go to's! Fantastic! A bit more refined and greater depth and body is my assessment. And don't be deceived by how little head this produces. Nothing flat in the taste. One potential caveat, however-- It's got the kick of a jackass. Image

Now this beer I am very familiar with. It's one of my top 20 favorite beers and I buy a 6-pack of it regularly. :D
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

You guys may enjoy looking around the BJCP (Beer Judge Certification Program) website. You can find the style beer you are drinking and see what it should taste like. You can also download a score sheet and score your beers.

This is my favorite period. I can't actually remember when I first had an Andy Gator but ever since then I have been hooked. It is brewed by Abita Brewery in Abita Springs, LA.

Hey I'm not beer expert so I will let their website tell you about it.

Abita Andygator®, a creature of the swamp, is a unique, high-gravity brew made with pale malt, German lager yeast, and German Perle hops. Unlike other high-gravity brews, Andygator® is fermented to a dry finish with a slightly sweet flavor and subtle fruit aroma. Reaching an alcohol strength of 8% by volume, it is a Helles Doppelbock. You might find it goes well with fried foods. It pairs well with just about anything made with crawfish. Some like it with a robust sandwich. Andygator® is also a good aperitif and easily pairs with Gorgonzola and creamy blue cheeses. Because of the high alcohol content, be cautious — sip it for the most enjoyment.

Suggested temperature: 42°
Suggested glassware: pint, goblet, stein, flute or snifter

Beer Profile
ABV 8.0%; IBU 25; Color 8; Packaging 22oz Bottle

Once again, you and I are in tune, CG. I am actually amazed you can find it... I'll be. :D

Thank you most kindly for sharing that link with us, Wolfpack. Most interesting. Must give this some thought. :D

Turbodog's pretty good, too. A local restaurant that specializes in Louisiana/Cajun food often has it on tap.

It does pack a punch, and it goes down so easy you have to be careful with it.
