Sounds interesting...like those chocolate covered orange candies.

I bought a 12 pack sampler of Tommyknocker last week. I think I've tried every one, and haven't been disappointed with any of them

i've been in the wine and spirits buisness for a little while now. ive had most of the micorbrew and very few brewerys are impressing me.

anything from bells is gold. victory makes killer beers, the golden monkey (belgian style tripel) is out of this world. i also like north coast and dogfish head. summit and sam adams really bores me to death, nothing special. good beer but, meh.

i've been on a huge belgian beer kick. nothing compares, high in acl&, exciting flavors not found in other beers and the fact that there are so many different ones that taste completely different. from sweet to bone dry they are awesome. (i'm not counting stella, that stuff is average and bland)

Checked out that site. Pretty cool except for the fact that some of the reviewers are the biggest beer snobs in the world. I thought I was a beer snob, but it turns out I'm an uncultured redneck.

I did like the article on light beer.

Those Trappist monks know there stuff. If there is any better beverage on the face of this earth than Chimay Red it should be illegal. I also love teh Corsendonk. I plan on cracking open a few magnums of that during the World Cup.

You're not expected to drink anything more expensive than Pabst while in college. :wink:
Where are you enrolled?
I first learned of beer pong while living in CO long after my college days were far behind me [sigh]

So true. Recently my youngest brother (who had just finished his freshmen year at Michigan State) was over my house and I gave him a Killian's. He looked at me like I had just handed him the Holy Grail itself, stating "Oh man...I could get $5 for one of these up at school!" :D

Dang kids. :wink:

I lived on 10th St. and right around 14th Ave. in Greeley for a year. Got my first ace on what used to be hole 1 at the course in town. It was a forehand that was looking too low, and skipped off the walking bridge. I didn't even know it went in until I walked over the hill. Too bad they pulled a bunch of baskets.

The Fort Collins course is very cool tho. I gotta make a sumer trip back out there and play a bunch of courses. When I lived there I was just getting into disc, so I haven't played any courses other than those two.

yeah, epple (old greeley course) is down to 6 holes, UNC has a 9 hole course.

Im in ft collins often, they have Edora aswome, but the only CO course theres always a wait. Theres also a tight short 9 hole course in Le Porte just north of ft collins.

Did someone say Trappist monks? Chimay any one?

This thread has grown; wish I'd kept up with it. You say bluemoon and guiness? I'll get some tommorrow.

Guiness and sprite=shandy. Quite possibly the most refreshing beer to drink after 18.

Try it, you'll be suprised.
