it's only 8.5%? http://www.terrapinbeer.com/beers/rye.squared.php

Wow....glad I don't live in your state. No Sunday sales either?

I'm about to settle in on a Moylan's Hopsickle. This Triple Imperial Ale nectar tastes like candy....but at 9.2% you need to watch out.

The Sierra Nevada seasonal Bigfoot Ale is some pretty potent stuff http://www.sierranevada.com/beers/bigfoot.html, tastes pretty good, but I don't like to drink more than 2 of them at a time. My favorite "strong" beer is probably Eye of the Hawk http://www.mendobrew.com/brews/eye_hawk.html It's "only" 8% alcohol, but it'll do the job damn quick, and goes down like it's a 6% beer. Anybody tried the super strong Sam Adams beers? The only one that I've ever tried was the Triple Bock (18% ABV), which frankly, I thought tasted like oaken ass. They say it's supposed to be sipped like brandy, but I think brandy tastes way better (and I'm not even a fan of brandy). The Utopia is 25.6 ABV (!!!!)...that's creeping up on liqueur territory, though if it's anything like the Triple Bock, just give me Jager any day. :?

My favorite high-octane brew is Dogfish Head's Olde School. It's 15% but it goes down dangerously smooth for it's strength. I highly recommend it to any who like strong beer.

Is this the line for the beer? Or the line for the tickets for the beer?

Sorry to tell ya if you didn't know....but mendo brewing was bought by Indian investors in 97 and it started going down hill right away.

Here are two tasty choices though:

Anderson Valley's Brother David's Double and Triple:

North Coast Brother Thelonious:

hehe, well, I'd never had any of the Mendo brews until I moved out there in '98, and I liked their beers all through my tenure in CA...up until the end of '05 when I moved up here to Seattle. I'd still be buying them now if the stores that I go to carried the stuff...apparently they're around though, just gotta do some searchng. I just found out that I have this place http://www.bottleworks.com/default.htm as a resource, though I could easily see myself going wild there. And at the same time, I found out I have this placehttp://www.uberbier.com/ right down the street from me. *sigh* I see many empty calories in my future....

But anyway, you say the Mendo brews have gone way down? Man, I would have loved to have tasted them in their prime then!

Wow...the uberbier place looks sick...but uber expensive? Still, very nice to have access to so much. I'm very spoiled to have the toronado's happy hour as my standard.....pints for 2.50-3 bucks from 11:30-6:00PM.

Mendo this...mendo that...don't sleep on Sonoma. I'm about to enjoy a Racer 5 during the weekly on a wonderful sunny day...highs in the 70's...hopefully my round is in the 40's.

Had my first Samuel Smith beers this weekend... Damned!

Also tried one named India Pale Ale from Colorado that i didn't care for, or rather, I've had better IPA's. Also had the usual, Murphy's and San Miguels.

Where did you see the prices? You weren't looking at the ABV of the beers were you? Cause that WOULD make it uber expensive!

:D

Oh yeah, and I know I've had the Racer 5 before, and remember really liking it, but don't remember what it tasted like exactly. I used to live in walking distance of a BevMo, basically trying a couple new beers every week...it was truly a glorious time to be 22. :wink:
