List your top 5-10 favorite beers here...

Post by onetouchfutbol on Mon Apr 13, 2009 6:43 pm

This should get us 20,000+ posts. Mine are pretty basic, and the top beer really depends on my mood...

1) Any McMenamin's Nitro...
2) Black Butte Porter
3) Widmer Hefeweizen
4) Young's Double Chocolate Nitro
5) Pilsner Urquell--being Czech...this had to make the list.
6) Negra Modelo
7) Bohemia

*Sadly, I still need to try Pliny and it will probably jump abruptly into the list...

1) the "P" beer

2) The Younger is pretty good it you can handle the extra hops and the 11% alky.

3) Jerome - from Mendoza , Argentina is pretty good. The only place in town that has it reliably is Pambiche on Glisan, SE.

4) There's a German Pislner called Dinkelacker., not so much because of the brew, but because of the meticulous way it was presented in a German pub in New Paltz, NY. (Emile's - smile spelt backwards) in the summer you got it in an iced down frosty half-meter tall glass, with the rim flavored with lime juice. Mmmm... and because when the bartender saw me in the parking lot parking the car, he'd have one ready for me when I walked in the door after a day of rock climbing. The bartender was a sparing partner to Floyd Patterson, who retired to New Paltz. Floyd sometime would run past me on my way to the rocks in the early morning - sweat shirt with a towel around his neck, even in the hottest weather. He did that well into his 60's.


5) Just to show I'm not always after hops (some say that's like going for the hottest chile)
Abbot's Ale, an English ESB-style brew that was flown into town in kegs to Portland a few years back. I think 9/11 ended that trade. Served as a Nitro, it was divine - like a desert.

Hmmm, a good topic for discussion. In no particular order:

McMenamins Crystal Ale
Widmer Drop Top Amber
Smithwicks Irish Red
Oly (For camping, and hot summer days after mowing the lawn) Cool
Pacifico (when served poolside or on the beach in Puerto Vallarta...)
Kokanee (hot days on the dock at the lake...)

Well clearly I can't let this go without participating

1. Auguistiner Bier (Straight from the wooden cask is the only way to go)

2. Pliny the Elder (Geezer was right.... It pretty much had me at hello)

3. Steigl Goldbrau (More of a nostalgic choice than anything, but it tastes like damn fine memories)
4. Rogue Morimoto Hazelnut Ale (An explosion of hazelnut flavor... really unique)

5. Guinness Draft (HAS to be off tap, but I love creating new floating mixtures (a la the black and tan)... Some of my faves: Black and Blue (Guiness/PBR), Black Castle (Guinness/Newcastle Brown Ale), Black Top (Guinness/Drop Top Amber), Black Tire (Guinness/Fat Tire), etc. etc.)

6. Gambrinus Pilsner (Had it once by the liter at a smazeny syr stand in a market in Prague... Flat out delicious, best Czech pilsner I've ever had)

7. Pabst Blue Ribbon (Refreshing, delicious, and it tastes like Thirsty Thursdays at the T-Room... Did you know more PBR is consumed in the PDX than any other city??)
8. Rainier Beer (Haha the PBR of Seattle... Must be the Yakima Valley hops...)



I could keep going, but all this typing has made me thirsty...

I cant believe I left Schmidt off my list.

Schmidt deer beer... "The Beer that Grew with the Great Northwest."

I just wish it could be found in Oregon... Sad

I may as well construct my honorable mention list (In no particular order):
Red Hook ESB, Fat Tire, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Bridgeport IPA, Hop Czar, Widmer Brrrr, Mirror Pond Pale Ale, Mac & Jacks, McMeniman's Rubinator (Half ruby, half terminator stout)/Hammerhead, Caldera Ginger Ale (had it at the Brewfest last summer, refreshing beer with a ginger aftertaste), Widmer Drop Top, Stiegl Radler (beer brewed with lemon soda... haha the best girly drink out of a bottle you will find), and Rogue Shakespeare Stout...

The list really could go on and on and on...

You know Schmidt is operated by the Pabst Brewing company... Pour a PBR in a glass and close your eyes, maybe that will work Razz

IF you ever stop at the Echo Inn in Carver, ask for a red beer.

Half PBR and half Tomato juice. Just to show I'm not making this up,

I have been known to consume a red beer or 2 in my life... but I think half tomato juice is a bit much. I would say more like 4 parts beer (lager) to 1 part tomato juice.

I know it may sound awful, but you should try it. It is perfectly acceptable, in my book, to have your breakfast beers be red beers...

What's wrong with a beer version of a bloody mary??

Agreed, i think it was originally the W '08 special beer (or something like that), but they brought it back as Brrrr, considering it was like 6.5-7.0% it was pretty smooth and had a nice finish. Widmer doesn't even have a red out as a mass production beer, I wouldn't mind seeing Brrrr added to the regular rotation.

And yes, Drifter is the name of their newest pale, it really is quite delicious, although if I'm going pale ale I'd rather it be India style and hoppy as all hell... but that's just me

I think Snow Plow was just a limited time seasonal, they might bring it back at some stage (maybe under a different name like they did with Brrrr)

1. Augustiner Maerzenbier - nothing else can touch it

In no other order: the Polish beer Zwyiec (spelling?), He'brew's Messiah Bold, Widmer's Drifter (if you haven't tried it, you're really missing out), also their Drop Top, Pliny the Elder, Zipfer, Rainier, Guiness, and pretty much anything at the Horse Brass Pub

This is a difficult one for me. Spending the last three years in Nashville "land of the lost good beer (or something like that)" where it was darn near impossible to find decent beer, my adult beverage consumption decreased dramatically. Because of this I think my pallete has become unrefined. But here is my list, although I haven't had some of these beers in a long time (no particular order)

Bridgeport IPA
Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA
Widmer ALT
Terrapin Rye Pale Ail
Michelob AmberBock (considering how few stores/bars/restaurants carried anything "better" than Michelob this was my fall back, surprisingly, I didn't feel all that much like I was settling)

Coldsmoke, I'm a little disappointed that the Josef Hoffbrauer (sp?) did not make your list. There is nothing like a good corn beer!

Oh wow... I remember the Josef Hoffbrauer. No

Not gonna lie... I'm not really a beer drinker, and even when I do have a beer it is always the light beers. (I mean low hop content, not Lite beers.)

So really I can't contribute much here. I'm a miserable excuse of a Portlander...

It's okay to like lighter beers. I'm not that big on IPAs and the really strong stuff myself. Although Black Butte Porter is pretty nice...

I also like the McMenamins Hammerhead, Drop Top, Dead Guy, some of the Red Hooks...
