    I had Dog Fish Head once, though I don't remember which one. They serve it in a Mexican restraunt across the highway from my Dad! So next time I'm there, I'll will have to ask which one it is.

    Does anyone get their beer in Growlers? I am curious about how long the beer lasts...

    I love all the beers from Red Hook. Their ESB is probably my favorite beer.

    I am going to have to try some Dogfish Head brews when I am back in Philly for Christmas. I keep hearing great things.

    Oh! I heard rumors we're travling to PA for Christmas as well, so it would be fun to try some local beers! My Dad's family lives in Erie...

    Make sure you try Yuengling, especially the Black & Tan. If you can find Flying Fish, that's also very good. My all time favorite Philly beer is Dock Street, but I don't think they make it anymore.

    Well do! Thanks for the sugestions. I've never been to Philly, my grandparents aren't big on traveling, so we usually stay pretty close to home. :p

    The beer should remain fresh for up to twenty four hours if I recall correctly.

If you're a hophead, you'll want to check these out. These beers are made to be poured. I use a beer glass and pour down the side until I get near the top. A bit of a head can be a good thing. If the beer is high alcohol, I use a red wine glass to allow some of the alcohol flavor to dissipate.

    Stone IPA - Never a disappointment, hops galore, drinkable, a winner

    Stone Ruination IPA - Hoppiness is a warm gun. This stuff will clean your teeth. It's bright - too bright for everyday, but a true pleasure treat.

    Smuttynose IPA - Highly drinkable, slightly viscous, but not overly malty. Medium hops.

    Dogfish Head IPA - 120, 90, 60 - The only truly drinkable DFH is the 60 minute, which can be poured into a beer glass. All three are malty. The 120 belongs in a brandy snifter, 90 red wine glass. Both the 120 and 90 minute are great apertifs.

    Weyerbacher Simcoe - Perhaps my favorite, this is a well-crafted IPA with amazing character. The trademarked Simcoe hops are outstandingly delicious. Although it is drinkable, two are plenty.

    These are some great beers to start with if you're interested in getting to know IPAs.

    If you can find a tavern that sells cask-conditioned IPAs, you've found the crown jewels of hops. Casks are small and hand-pumped. They are very low carbonation. Inside each cask is sort of a teabag full of hops (always a different variety of hops from the original), dangling into the brew. This onsite dry-hopping process makes for an uncanny beer experience. The sharpness gives way to a field of flowers. My favorite pale ale experiences.
    Great suggestions Kai and welcome! Next time I'm out of state, I'll try to seek out the 'elusive' cask-conditioned IPAs.

    Cheers!



    I had a rather unique brew from Dogfish the other night called Red & White. Here's a description:

    A big, belgian-style Wit brewed with coriander and orange peel and fermented with Pinot Noir juice. After fermentation a fraction of the batch is aged in Oregon Pinot Noir barrels, and another fraction is aged on oak staves. The beer is blended together before packaging.

    This has been one of our most popular Limited Edition beers at both our Rehoboth Beach, DE brewpub and at festivals. It successfully marries the refreshing citrusy qualities of a Belgian-style white beer with the robust complexity of a bold red wine.

    Red & White sounds yummy...

    Okay, 24 - 72 hours is what the folks at BA said as well...which I wouldn't drink that much beer in that ammount of time. So I guess I'll pass on that option! :p

    They do still make Dock Street! In fact, there is a Dock Street brewpub at 50th and Baltimore now.

    Dock Street Beer - 701 S. 50th Street. West Philly, PA 19143
    Who wants to try a bottle of merc's "Extroversion Olive Oil?"

    I have noticed that there is kind of a new style of beer out there now. It's properly an IPA, and I know, IPA's aren't new by any means... but this is the hyper-hopped pale ale like Dogfish Head's 90-Minute IPA, or Tupper's Hop Pocket Ale, or Victory's Hop Devil. This is a full-bodied beer with a presence of hops so strong it sings in your head! Bitter to the point of tasting metallic, with a finish that lasts fifteen minutes. This is a hop infusion so strong, it's the next best thing to actually chewing hop flowers.

    And I'm addicted. Gimme!
