In no particular order:
Pilsner Urquell (sp?)
Xingu (a very dark beer from Brazil)
Sweetwater Brewing Company – Sweet Georgia Brown Ale
Kona Brewing Company – Longboard Ale
I wouldn’t know where to begin….
Locally there’s Newport Storm. by the Coastal Extreme Brewing Company…
I also enjoy just about anything by Magic Hat out of South Burlington VT and Shipyard from Portland Maine…
Of course Seattle and the Pacific Northwest definetely had the monopoly over great craft beer….
My favorites (and I don’t know which are still around) were Hales Ales out of Kirklane WA, Grant’s Ale’s by the Yakima Brewing Company in Yakima WA and Thomas Kemper in Poulsbo WA….Red Hook in Seattle used to be really good before they expanded a’la Starbucks.
Anything by Bell’s Brewing out of Comstock, MI. Everything they brew is excellent.
I’m just curious.
Harpoon has some great beer as well…www.harpoonbrewery.com[/url]
New Belgium Brewery.. Fantastic Colorado brewed beer…
While I am certainly going to miss many of the fantastic PacNW beers, I am looking forward to again drinking many of my Midwest favorites in a couple of weeks. Bells, Great Lakes Brewing, Dark Horse, Founders, Three Floyds all leap to mind.
I also enjoyed Ringnes (I believe it was called Ringnes special) I haven’t seen it since the 70’s. I did some checking and as far as I can tell it’s not available anywhere. I recall being in Denver when I drank it.
Ringnes was bought out by Carlsberg in the 90s and I haven’t seen it since. It was indeed a very good beer.
I keep hearing that Rhinegold is once more on the market, but it hasn’t reached the Delmarva area. Does anybody know anything about this?
I might be big, but was never a big beer drinker yet from my younger days I recall a Norwegian beer called Ringnes that I really liked.
Does anyone else remember that?
For that matter, has anyone seen it lately?
If I recall, it was shipped here in bulk and bottled here.
Aside from Ringnes, I enjoy a Tsing Tao once in awhile
