Beers of the moment

I've been noticing Session Lager because of its really small bottle. Finally got to try it and found out it's made in an Oregon city that Katie and I visited on our honeymoon. Pretty good beer, similar to Red Stripe in bottling and taste. Oddly enough, the bottle actually does hold one ounce less than a more traditional bottle.

:: Leffe, Abbey-style
:: Flying Dog Pale Ale ranked first by NYTimes and I like it too.

I've seen that Flying Dog but never given it a try, I'll make a mental note to pick it up on my next trip to my preferred liquor store.

Around here they sell both New Holland and Founders, which I hadn't had in ages. (I think more MI brews make their way to Illinois than they do to MO) I've been digging on a lot of IPA (which I think is technically different than regular old pale ale) recently— Founders' Centennial and NH Mad Hatter. I think the Mad Hatter is the better of the two (mainly because the Centennial is REALLY strong).

Also, if you ever see it around VA I recommend Boulevard Pale Ale. On the scale between micro brews and proletariat beer it's solidly in the middle on both taste and cost (think in the Newcastle/ Sam Adams/ Stella category), and worth the $7-8.

Golden Monkey Tripel from Victory is the best I've had lately.

I'm always surprised how widely Founder's products are available out of state, especially when so few Southern Michigan stores carry them (none in Hillsdale that I'm aware of).
