Wow.  I thought I was a beer snob, compared to the "30 pack of Coors Lite" crowd I've been surrounded by for the last decade or so.  Turns out I'm not even close...

    Anyone here tried Samuel Adams Cherry Wheat? I'm thinking about giving it a try (if my local distributor ever gets any single bottles back in stock!)

    INDEED.  Jesse had some of that out that last time the AZ crew were out at his place.  Good stuff!

    I have started to take some wine in the evening for my stomach's sake.
    Strange...I'm not a drinker, but a glass of dark red wine seems to still the reflux at night.

    It's not bad, but Sam Adams has been giving me heartburn in general lately. Dunno why.

    New Belgium has an "Old Cherry" seasonal that is great, as is their 'Frambozen.' I think they hit the shelves on an irregular basis around springtime.

    Yes!  You can actually taste natural cherries in the aftertaste.  I like beer from barley, but this one would be my go-to if I had to pick a wheat.
    CaliforniaThere are many like it, but this one is mine.

    Too much sweet for my taste.  When I get some in one of those Sam Adams variety packs from Sam's Club, I give the cherry ones to the Mrs.

    Then again, one of my favorite beers is Stone Ruination IPA.  Slogan: "I'm very bitter, and I like it."

    Got to try a Rogue Dead Guy Ale last night... *Very* nice... my wife tried their Hazelnut Brown and liked it, but when she tried the Dead Guy, she said "Okay, so we're picking up a six pack of that..."

    Then I reminded her we had a growler of their Chocolate Porter in the beer fridge...  :thumbup1

    Speaking of which, according to Terrapin's Facebook page, it is "International Stout Day"... I don't know if that's true or not, but I'll take any excuse...

    If you liked that one Sam Adams has been putting out one called American Kreik from their "Barrel Room Collection."  It's definitely not a like the cherry wheat but the cherry notes are much more subtle and the type used are more tart.  Almost like eating them fresh.  It's worth a try unless you are hesitant about the price: $11 for a bomber (in CO).

    I'm not a real beer fan, but I'm finding wine a bit more tolerable since it seems to help my stomach.
    Any recommendations?
    I prefer sweeter, let dry wines.
    And dark if possible.

    Are you anywhere near a Trader Joe's? Their 'Moon' series is very tasty, particularly Old Moon - a zinfandel, and not particularly expensive.

    I'll be drinking this wine at night mostly.
    So far the habit has kept my acid reflux at bay.
    Trader Joe's...I'll check.

    I just picked up a six pack of No Label Brewing Black Wit-O. (With appropriate spider on the label.)  Dark wheat ale from Katy, TX.  I expected a Dunkelweizen, but it is definitely not that.  But still very good.

    This will go great with a good dark cigar.

    I decided to live dangerously this afternoon...



    Yes that's bacon flavored beer.  They missed.  It's actually a style called "rauchbier" which is heavily smoked.  It reminds me more of a campfire than bacon.

    I had a bottle of the baconbeer a while back. All smoke and a little maple sweetnessI found the maple syrup dominated, with a little smoke to go with it, but that was about it. Not unpleasant, but I didn't think it worth repeating.

    Edited: Found my post of Oct. 15 on this a few pages back in the thread. Correcting! Memory's a funny thing, alas.
