gpat wrote Yuengling. Unfortunately, you can’t get it in Ohio.
is this true? i’m not a yuengling drinker, so i’d never know. but that seems odd. It is true. You can only get Yuengling (America’s Oldest Brewery) on the East Coast. They have been talking for quite a while of buying another brewery, but the problem is they are brewing at capacity so they haven’t been able to expand. Good stuff for the price. Went to Philly often in school and would pay for the trip by bringing back cases of Yuengling. One trip to Philly we had 19 cases in the car :shock:
ahh, got it. i’m from new jersey so it was always available. i just assumed it was this way everywhere. interesting…January 20, 2008 1:54 pm at 1:54 pm #164582
I am also a big fan of Barley’s in C-bus here. I would say the best Ohio beer is Barley’s and Marietta Brewing Co. http://www.mariettabrewingcompany.com/beers.htmJanuary 20, 2008 3:09 pm at 3:09 pm #164583
My favorites are
*Hoegaarden (a nice Belgian white beer)
*Burning River beers–Dortmunder Gold especially
*Belle’s Two Hearted Ale.
*St. Pauli Girl is a good everyday beer.January 20, 2008 4:07 pm at 4:07 pm #164584
holt wrote Bar Harbor Blueberry Ale…. It is on tap at the Mohawk…
Do they throw a few fresh blueberries in your glass when they serve it to you?January 20, 2008 4:11 pm at 4:11 pm #164585
So hard to pick just one. I’m usually a fan of the hoppy/citrusy IPA’s, so here’s my short list…
Great Lakes Holy Moses IPA (burning river is good too)
Dogfish Head 90 minute IPA
Rogue Dead Guy Ale
I’ve only had it a few times, but Rogue Brutal Bitter is phenomenal. Tip Top has it in the big bottles.January 20, 2008 4:23 pm at 4:23 pm #164586
Mercurius wrote Anyone want to go to this??
I went a couple of years ago and got a really crappy beer. So I said to the bartender, I says: “I thought this was brew week, not weak brew.”
He didn’t like that so much and I’m not welcome back to O’Hooley’s.
All in all, though, being an OU alumna (even though they started this well after I graduated), brew week a rather fun time and relatively (and shockingly) student-free.
But to answer the thread question, I’m a sucker for Octoberfest. Anyone’s Octoberfest. I live for Autumn because then I know my favorite beer is “in season.”
For all seasons, though, I enjoy Barley’sJanuary 20, 2008 4:34 pm at 4:34 pm #164587January 20, 2008 4:40 pm at 4:40 pm #164588
PBR, great lakes christmas ale and elliott ness, brooklyn brown ale, la fin du monde, kirin ichiban, and pretty much any summer brew pale ale. mmmm beeeeerrrrJanuary 20, 2008 4:45 pm at 4:45 pm #164589

With the winter weather I’ve been drinking lots of stouts and porters and other darker ales, they’re all good really. I just drank a six pack of breckinridge oatmeal stout, perfect for the 14 degrees outside.
Oh and throw in the occasional 40, OE or Mickeys…yes, seriously.January 20, 2008 6:27 pm at 6:27 pm #164592
This all really depends on the season, but:
– Dogfish head 90 min IPA. It really is, by any standard, one of the greatest beers you can get in the US. Bar none.
– Chimay, blue label.
– Bridgeport IPA (God, I miss this beer)
– Franziskaner Hefeweizen
– Pyramid Snowcap
– Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout
– Beamish (on tap)
In the summertime:
– Full Sail Fish Tail (THEY SELL FULL SAIL AT THE BEER/WINE PLACE AT NORTH MARKET, YAYYYYYYYYYYYY)
– Red Stripe
– Pyramid Curve Ball
– Red Hook ESB
On the cheap:

Dang, and here I thought I was going to end up being somewhat original in this thread citing Great Lakes … and it’s got to be one of the most frequently-listed ones in this thread.
(Just means Undergrounders have good taste, then!)January 20, 2008 7:54 pm at 7:54 pm #164594
I forgot about these favorites….
*North Coast brewing CO.–Scrimshaw ale.
*Bigfoot Ale–I think it’s an IPA
*Anchor Steam (especially the Liberty Ale)
*Goose Island–Honker’s Ale.
I have never had Chimay, but I have heard great things about it. I need to try it soon.
Mike really likes Bellhaven on tap. #1 on his list.
