i don't drink anymore, but when i did i never tasted a better beer than Goose Island Christmas Ale. Unfortunately it's seasonal, that's what makes it even more special.

3 pages and no mention of Stella? By far my fav.

It's been brewed since the 14th century. Crazyness!


I have a definite aversion to Stella because of an experience I had in New York. I was there on a history fellowship, staying at NYU and learning about the historiography and study of slavery in the United States with fifty other kids. A bunch of us went out to some bar (I was over 21 at the time, but I was never carded at any bar or when I bought alcohol at the store. Is that common?) and when we ordered our drinks these two guys from Yale told me that Stella Artois was kind of a rich man's beer. Not that it's that expensive, but that it's favored amongst the financially elite. They both had a kind of haughty attitude, and the result is that I've stayed away from Stella ever since. Maybe I should just say fuck 'em and give it a shot anyway, reclaiming the brew for the little guy.


You forgot to mention that Stella tastes horrible.

This perfectly illustrates my opinion of pretentious beer drinkers:

The funny thing about that clip is that now Pabst Blue Ribbon has become the pretentious beer. I see PBR at all trendy spots and other hipster hangouts and in some cases they will charge a high amount for it. And people will go out of their way to buy it too. Its one thing to drink crappy beer because its cheap and you have no money and its just there, but over paying to drink swill just to prove a point is pretty sutpid.

Just turned 21 yesterday, never really drank beer or alcohol for that matter, at least it never tasted any good. Someone school me on what I should try.

I mean I should put my new priveledge to good use, right?

Nice, thanks for the update on Hoegaarden. You're from Belgium, I assume? I had the best beer of my life there but it was ordered for me and I completely forgot the name... it was dark and the first one you posted looked a lot like the bottle.. I'll have to look for that one and see if it's the same.
