    If we have a Whiskey thread, we need a BEER THREAD!!

    I recently moved within twenty minutes of Missouri, which has pretty much no liquor laws (yay for booze on Sundays!), and the local *big* liquor store in Joplin has a build-your-own-sixpack setup, so I've been trying a bunch of new stuff.

    I'm partial to Blue Moon and wheat beers in general, especially any and all homebrewed hefeweizen.

    With much prodding from friends, I tried an IPA.
    Pain from start to handing it off after a couple of sips.

    I still don't get how anyone can enjoy a BITTER flavor in a BEVERAGE, but that's just me.

    What about ya'll?

    So you're in the four state area? We don't live more than a couple hours apart, and my uncle lives in Joplin.

    I like Blue Moon as well, but my very favorite wheat beer is Free State (KS)'s Wheat State Golden, or Boulevard (MO) Wheat.

    I don't mind IPAs myself.

      I like Boulevard, but I prefer to use it in beer chili than as a beverage.

        I had the exact same opinion of IPAs the first several times I tried them. Now, I almost prefer them over other beers.

          When it comes to beer, we're about polar opposites. I don't care much for wheat beers, but I really like double IPAs (which tend to be a little sweeter than the usual IPA). I also enjoy stouts and barleywines. Yuengling lager or black & tan are acceptable cheap beers.

          I've tried a handful of Boulevard's products, but they're more carbonated than I prefer. I love building my own six-packs.

            I really like hefeweizens too, though.

              I like a lot of different kinds of beers including wheat, lagers, ales, IPAs, etc. I hated IPAs the first time I tried them. I gave them another try last year and ended up liking them after all. My advice is not to give up on IPAs. They sort of grow on you after a while.

              I really love Stouts and Porters. I like to try different kinds from local breweries.

                I'm a fan of Stout Beers (like Guinness) and Ales (Amber, Dark, IPA/Double IPA). I've been longing to try a Russian Imperial Stout for ages, but alas... I can't seem to find one at my local Liquor Board Store.

                  You can't find any imperial stouts? I feel sad for you. Do they just have a limited number of brands? If you ask for something, can they get it for you?

                    My grandpa used to drink these when I was a kid.
                    Didn't know they were still around until I got to try one over Christmas Break.



                    Good stuff.

                      I think the only Texas beer I've had is Shiner (I've tried several of their varieties, but I think I like Shiner Bock the best).

                        Have you tried the Shiner Wild Hare Pale Ale? I'm a bit biased, but I haven't had a bad Shiner product.


                        I prefer Stouts and Ales myself. But I haven't been drinking much beer lately...

                          No, I haven't seen that one yet. I don't recall caring much for their Oktoberfest, or their Farmhouse ale.

                          Then again, the only Oktoberfest I've really liked so far is Sam Adams.
