Billy's is one of my favorites. I'm also a fan of Yak and Yeti's Jalapeno Lena. Some friends of mine recently informed me that Amicas has a Green Chili Ale. Has anybody tried it?

Speaking of Two Hearted Ale.. This was my summit beverage on Mt. Shavano this morning.

Made some Boulevard Dark Truth Stout beer bread based off this recipe: http://www.friesema.net/other/recipes.htm
Tried Avery's White Rascal for the first one and it was, eh, ok. Friend who's also made beer bread recommends against IPAs as the hops makes it too floral so you feel like you're eating a flower.

Interesting pairing... That Founders needs more eggs, bacon, and waffles among the ingredients. (Yes, had the voodoo maple bacon donut.)

Not sure if I'll do more 14ers. The trip reports are too tiring. :wink:

I don't want to elaborate but you real drinkers know what a solid drink really means. I don't have pics, but here are the very best brews for the very best times to drink a perfect beer:

1. Hot day: Breckenridge Agave Wheat X 12
2. Cold day: Left Hand Milk Stout (Nitro or die) X 6
3. After work: Avery IPA X 3
4. Woman troubles: Sierra Nevada Big Foot Barley Wine (that s**t has to be like 15%, I don't care what the bottle says) X 6 pack ... X 2 if you're a monster.
5. Why the f**k not?: Stone Anniversary Brews, always something good to be had. I prefer the '03 brew if its available. If not and Old Guardian will always smack you in the right direction.

While you enjoy these delicious concoctions, rock some of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9YxRg5OVwF0

Live up the goodness.

Currently on the last 1/3 of a Castle Brewery "Gueuze Fond Tradition".

Barnyard/horse blanket funk+Apple cider vinager+pukey lactobasillus= Refreshing and goes great with food.
