    If you are ever in Fort Collins stop by the New Belgium brewery. They have some pretty high gravity stuff over there that is absolutely the best tasting beer you could ever imagine.

    I like beer at isn't flavored like a bar of soap. You can take your IPA and shove it.

    Yeah, not sure about the idea.

    Frown on a light beer all you want but until you've tried something like Mephistopheles you aren't exactly taking a whole lot of risk.


    Give that one a shot. Spendy and usually sold as individuals but I dare say that nobody would want more than one.

    BTW, that Scottish fool in the video is completely full of crap. That beer's name is perfect because it's absolutely evil.

    Not discounting lighter beers at all. Plenty of outstanding breweries (like Avery) make good ones. The mass produced ones that have zero taste or complexity are what I've been criticizing

    You're right. A .16 BAL is enough to make you plenty silly and stupid acting, but it wouldn't take 16 beers to get there. The alcohol to blood ratio is pretty constant...it's how he manifests that .16 that his body weight will dictate to a degree.

    If you like those beers -- look for versions of those styles from a more local brewer. That's a good start. Instead of Red Stripe try Session by Full Sail. Instead of red hook try Jolly Pumpkin ESBam. As a general rule, stuff made by smaller companies tends to knock the socks off the major brands
