Your last five beers

Three additions thanks to a wonderfully languorous meal at Brasserie V.

To start, Rodenbach Original (bottle). Sour, sweet. Similar to Monk's Cafe Sour Flemish Ale. Lovely with the Montrachet goat cheese tart.

With the seared black cod with sweet pea puree and sweet-and-sour ramps, a Saison de Lente from The Bruery (draught). Just grassy enough.

For dessert, my first choice was out, so I had an Ommegang Abbey (draught). Fine, and a decent accompaniment to the chocolate mousse pie.

I've tired of defending Blatz over the years. It's good to see someone else appreciates it.
I'd love to hear the results of a blind taste test of PBR, Schlitz and Blatz. (Hell, throw in any other cheap brews, while yer at it! My money's on Blatz.)

Speaking of Blatz, I grew up in Milwaukee and during the late 50s, early 60s I saw their ad nearly every evening between the weather and sports on WTMJ-TV. I searched for that ad on youtube, but to no avail. Luckily(?) I still remember the jingle, an earworm permanently engraved in my gray matter.

I'm from Milwaukee,
and I ought to know
that Blatz beer tastes great,
wherever you go,
smoother, refreshing, less filling that's clear
Blatz is Milwaukee's favorite beer.

It's OK to hijack your own thread, isn't it?

And no, I've never been a fan of Blatz.

A subject dear to my heart:
Allagash Musette
Drei Fontainen Oude Gueuze
Ichtegem's Grand Cru Flemish Red
North Coast Old Stock 2008
Duvel Special Edition Tripel Hop mixed with 25% New Glarus Belgian Cherry

and for number six, my usual: Stone Arrogant Bastard :P

One correction: Blatz is Milwaukee's FINEST beer!

def. been on a hop/cheap beer kick these days...as it should be for spring

Ale Asylum Bedlam - had my one for the year, not my thing, but its good for what it is.

Pabst (actually about 12 of my last beers)- I've ridiculed pabst drinkers for years...but I gotta say, its been damn good lately. Between Brewfarm Select and Pabst..I'm set for canned beer these days.

Mad River Steelhead DIPA - pretty decent DIPA, esp for the price, got some when I was up at the Brule a couple weeks ago...haven't seen it around here though.

NG Moon Man - another staple of the summer fridge

Tyranena Scurvy - great seasonal, get it while its fresh.

I've also started to switch over to "summer" beers as the weather gets nicer.

Potosi Pilsener - bottle. This is fast becoming one of my favorites. I had a one with last night with dinner and another sitting out on the patio at dusk.

Potosi Snake Hollow IPA - pitcher, with dinner out on the Paisan's terrace Tuesday night. It went well with a Garibaldi.

New Glarus IIPA - bottle. One of these before dinner on Tuesday and I no longer felt all that hungry.

Capital US Pale - can, Sunday afternoon after taking down the heat tape on the roof. 20 minutes on asphalt shingles worked up a mighty thirst.

Ale Asylum Hoppalicious - on tap at Union South Saturday night at the Felice Brothers show. The new Union is pretty sweet.

Blatz: the beer that says its own name the following morning.

Point Whole Hog (Brewmaster's Series) Six Hop IPA-I'm not an IPA fan and tried a drink from my DH's glass. It was heavy on the floral nose. You floral and citrus blend hop lovers would like it.

Some citrus IPA I hadn't heard of: at the Mason. Light on hops for big IPA fans, but refreshing.

Sprecher's Black Bavarian: At the Echo. A decent standby when nothing else is sounding good.

Bell's Porter: on the firkin at Maduro. Gawd I love Bells.

Capital's Supper Club: Only because bottles were $2 at the Annex.

Three Floyd's Dreadnaught
Three Floyd's Brian Boru
Chatoe Rogue OREGasmic

and a whole buncha Bedlam with some habanero sauce and windex in the background in case anyone -really- wants to make things interesting.

What style of beer is OREGasmic? Not oregano, as I infer from the name, I hope.
