    I cried when Castle Springs Brewery in nearby Moultonborough closed its doors a couple of years ago. Their Lucknow Porter was an all-time favorite of mine, and I enjoyed many a case of it.

    Smuttynose Brewery in Portsmouth (also NH) makes a great Shoals Pale Ale that I am still enjoying, and their IPA is quite good, as well.

    Beer seems to taste best as close to its origins as possible.

    I love the story (and tell it as often as I can) of the brewers' convention in Amsterdam. When a few of the top people went for lunch, August Busch ordered a Bud, Adolph Coors ordered a Coors Light, and Arthur Guinness ordered a Coke. When they asked him why, he answered, "Well, if you blokes aren't going to drink beer, I won't either."

    New Belgium's Fat Tire

    Around the latter part of the year, I like to get some of the Spaten Oktoberfest.

    Saison Dupont.

    A Belgian farmhouse style.

    I'm quite proud of the fact that I have come kinda close to duplicating it in my personal brewery :D


    I like the Begian brews in general, and the various Lambics and Guezes are a particular weakness for me.

    You guys should go and venture to the local Filipino store in your area and get yourselves a bottle or can of San Miguel Pale Pilsen. An American friend goes here once and year and can't get enough of it...says it's one of the best beers he ever tasted...and he goes travelling all over the world.

    Try it! :)

    The only thing is that San Miguel that you buy in the US will probably not taste like the one he had in, say Manila or Hong Kong. It's brewed differently in different locales.

    Boy, San Miguel in Hong Kong... that brings back memories! I remember the draft San Miguel I used to have in the Chinery bar at the Mandarin hotel in HK. Went there on business regularly some years ago. Served in big pewter tankards. I can almost taste it now!

    Cooper's and Sons or Samual Smiths. Or anything sweet, dark, and local. Excepting water I don't drink clear liquids.

    I enjoyed a couple of glasses of Boulevard Wheat a couple of evenings ago. Very crisp and smooth.

    Very tasty...... For "special" beers you almost have to "roll" them around in your mouth like a fine wine..... Nothing better!
