After downing the last 4 bottles of my Sam Adam's Cherry Wheat Ale, I came up wiht a good idea. We should all pool together our beer experiences and come up with an Icrontic approved list of beers. I know Fatcat is doing the beer reviews on the Livin the Icrontic Life, but the more us who contirubute to this list the better. We can add "win" beers and "fail" beers.

Eggroll's Win Beer List:

Blue Moon
Rising Moon

    OOOOOh I got 1!!!

    It can currently only be found in Wisconsin made by a small company called New Glarus. They are building a much larger plant currently so it should be available nation wide soon. There are several flavors, but the best by far is Spotted Cow. It sounds strange, but where I think it gets its great flavor is from sweetcorn. You MUST try this beer if you get a chance!


    Here's a link to the beer on their website!

    Ahh beer... I have been enjoying Bavaria lately. Inexpensive for an import (around $7 for a 6 pack). I am partial to some of the Belgium beers, but they can get expensive. :beer:

    I also liked the Grape Pale Ale, was delicious.

    My list of "Win" beers is fairly long and includes a few people have mentioned:

    -Almost everything Dogfish Head brews. I say almost everything on the off chance they have something I don't remember not liking. I've had the World Wide Ale, and its delicious, better be for $10/bottle.
    -Yuengling, includes the Porter and Black & Tan
    -Anything from Tröegs
    -Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, ESP (Early Spring Beer), and Porter.

    Edit: Well, I guess it's not that long unless I start listing specific brews...

    I've had Hobgoblin, I like it a lot. A few of those are carried by "The Yardhouse" here in San Diego. They have quite the beer list - they try to keep it regional, too. The Glenview, IL (my first hometown!) location has Great Lakes stuff.

    I'm going through a Brahma phase at the moment, very easy to drink.

    Good choice with the Banana Bread Beer, some of the other stuff tastes like dirt though D: not a big fan of ale.

    I'm not a particularly big fan of barley wines to begin with, and this one felt a little heavy on the cherries. I need my cherries sparingly and usually in combination with honey. As in Troegs Mad Elf Ale.
