Only on good taste! 


Thankfully I have not had a beer that tastes like licorice.  It seems to me that ales may not be as popular in Europe, outside of the UK and Belgium - except maybe for things like Kolsch or top-fermented brews like Hefeweizen.  To me, it seems like few brewers in the US can make lagers or pilsners that taste as good as the ones from Europe, though.

It is named after the river in the UP, but the brewery is in the lower peninsula (the "mitten") - near Kalamazoo as far as I recall.  It's a pretty hearty IPA - good stuff.



Great beer! Bell's makes great brews except IMHO Oarsman Ale...

He's a pretty funny guy.  I can't think of any celebrity who has recently endorsed a beer brand; it used to be common in the 1950s through the '70s for print and TV ads.  I think professional athletes have been prohibited from endorsing beer - at least NFL and MLB players - for quite a while.  NASCAR drivers "endorse" them, but I don't think they can do ads.

* edit - Oh, Will Ferrell apparently did an ad for Old Milwaukee which aired in a few small markets.

Most Oskar Blues stuff is consistently less expensive —$9, and so is Sierra Nevada, compared to the $10 & $11 typical price now. We got them to switch to cans to save them money in distribution and the price went up. EEKanomix!

Oskar Blues, Sierra Nevada, and New Belgium all set up secondary or "satellite" breweries in near Asheville, NC (about 4 hours west of my location) a few years ago, so generally one week a month some of their varieties are on sale (as "local" beer) in the supermarket I go to.  $15.99 a 12-pack of Sierra cans sometimes...

 
Yep. I like the Juicy Haze from SN

Excellent. been enjoying the occasional one for years. @ $12 a six pack. Hopslam comes from same brewer and is good but I don't get the hype over limited offerings. I usually veer away from the "hurry before its too late" stuff. There are too many locally brewed excellent beers.

We've just started seeing this here; the pricing goes from "hmm, a bit premium" to "holy hoo-ha what no" on the same product/different stores, so I've only gotten it a couple of times.

I did snag a 6-pack of their Double Two Hearted 11% and you know what? It's too much. I really didn't care for it at all. Got it 1/2 price though, so I guess I'm not alone... 



They have a double called Hopslam (released in Jan/Feb) that's 10% and not as boozy.  I've had it on tap and it was very good.

Yeah - it can get expensive depending on which store I go to, but it's usually about the same price as Sierra or Oskar Blues beers - though those are on sale more often.  I haven't tried the 11%, but I'm generally not a fan of over-proofed stuff - they usually don't taste very good to me.  They're essentially malt liquor - like Colt 45 or Olde English 800.
