The Lounge>50 Beers to Try Before You Die
NewChief 06:18 AM 04-24-2010
Thought the beer snobs here might like this article (and probably critique the hell out of it).

(CBS) You've heard of "100 Bottles of Beer on the Wall"?

How about 50 to try before you die?!
Spoiler!

I will keep an eye out for it. If they export to Colorado I might be able to find some. Love the Rouge stuff I have tried on my own and hovered around their stand at the Great American Beer Fest for a while.

Mostly agree there. It was one of the first micro ish beers to make it big nationally so it's reputation is inflated. I sometimes order one at bars but haven't bought any at the store in a long while.

I much prefer Abby and 1554 to Fat Tire from New Belgian. Their Mighty Arrow is also a solid beer.

Fuck that list for not having the greatest beer of all time on it. Alaskan Amber.

1554 is vastly superior to Fat Tire.

At least these types of lists generate discussion and give me new names of beers to try.
Agreed on St. Bernardus - they make fantastic beers. Abt 12 is one of my personal favorites of all time...

Yes. Exactly.

GTFO, Taco, if you really believe that most CA beer is "bum piss."

Schilling was okay. I didn't get to try Isolation Ale but that clearly looked like their best one.

Levity was awful.

My sister lives right near the bruery, that place is doing some amazing beers. And russian River is knocking shit out of the ball park, their stuff is innovative and great.

I can't believe nobody followed up on my superior suggestion of 'Bison Organic'

YOU ALL CAN STICK IT UP YOUR COLLECTIVE 'BEER TASTING' ASSES.

I love a good saison; probably my current favorite.

I really like American IPA too, but have been taking a break from there for a while. If I could get my hands on some Pliny the Elder, then perhaps I would break my abstention.

MGD & Corona lol.

Seriously though, i wish i had that acquired taste for beer, but i just dont. All of these names make me want to drink them. I dont like that strong Ale taste and prefer the taste of Corona over any department store beer.

Knowing that Corona w/ lime is my favorite, what would you recommend that I try that i may like?
