I'm on a sort of vacation right now in Seattle and I finally found a banana bread beer by Well's. This is my alcoholic Holy Grail. Oddly enough, i was at this pkace Smash Wine & Cheese Bar in Wallingford and looking for, you know, a nice wine. And then there she was, just beckoning at the top of the drink menu. It set me back $9, but it was well worth it. Best beer I've had in a long time. Amazing. Seriously, this is a must try at least once.


I'm not a fan of the banana bread beer but I loathe bananas. Their Double Choc Stout is great though, best one I've had.

The best I've ever had, and there is a Pliny the younger which I'm told is even better.

See, I like ANYTHING banana. Maybe even more than actual bananas. And it was such a quest complete at that point that it was even more amazing. This Pliny beer sounds intriguing. Give us some more details.

So here in Scotland the principle pint is Tennant's. Fucker's love it. Non-fucker's love it. Everyone would take a bullet for it. That's fine. It's good, probably better than your standard American piss-bath of Coors, MGD, or Budweiser. But it's standard fare, right?

Well, I present to you (and I realize it isn't Scottish, but listen up anyway) THE KERNEL. I had the good fortune of swigging down two different styles of this Christ juice and it was brilliant. I'm talking Cheryl Cole on a star-shitting unicorn brilliant. If you can locate this brew, murder someone for it.

absolutely delicious if you're into pumpkin anything. i know we're encroaching upon christmas, but i really enjoy a pumpkin beer around halloween. matter of fact this beer tastes like pumpkin pie. i've got quite a sweet tooth normally, so i guess this fits into my palette pretty good. goes pretty good with a BBQ bacon burger on pretzel roll.

I thought Rogue's pumpkin ale was good, but not nearly worth the price ($12/22oz bottle). The best pumpkin beer I had this year was Elysian's Night Owl, which also has a really cool label:

I also tried Rogue's Voodoo Doughnut ale, which completely missed the mark. I wouldn't pay $2 for it, let alone the $12/bottle that it costs. But again, cool bottle design:

I like Blue Moon, but it tends to give me the runs.

Well, he did say the beer sucked, so you might be waiting for a while. That's disappointing. You'd be better off planning a trip to Portland to visit the namesake, and getting some extra fantastic donuts for your trouble.

Head over to Jolly Pumpkin in Dexter, just a wee bit west of Ann Arbor. Prepare to get crunk. You can also plan a weekend up in Traverse City at North Peak. Also crunktastic.
