OK, I'll chime in with a good one..... Four Peaks - Kilt Lifter or their SunBru for a light beer.

and I know it's not a local beer by any means, but has anyone tried one of Iron Maiden's - Trooper Ale?

Cheers!

Today a friend gave me this to try out. Kinda tastes like molasses! Yummy! 10.2% ABV.

Well, I bought a 6-pack of this last week and truly enjoyed its unique flavor. HOWEVER, I decided to part ways for 2 reasons: 1) I drink 2 beers before bedtime every night. I enjoy the relaxing kick I get out of doing that (Budweiser 5% ABV) but don't like going to bed half cross-eyed (6th Glass 10.2% ABV). 2) A 6-er costs over $14! So hellooooo Bud at just over $6!

Wouldn't that be the masculine side in search of the feminine?

That's good stuff - tasty. One of them knocks me out (I'm a small guy).

Well, I relented and treated myself to a 6-er of the 6th Glass this afternoon in anticipation of the excellent pain relief it will provide tonight before bed. We're under a severe weather watch to include tornadoes for the next 24 hours so it will also help with the stress associated with that. :icon_lol:

Them's fightin' words... :D

I like the "real ale" style you could only find in the UK, until recently. There are now a couple of local breweries around here experimenting with it, with proper hand pumps, etc.

Coffee and Instant Pots have their place, too!
Within staggering distance of Manchester Polytechnic were two brew pubs, The Lass O' Gowrie had an awesome 80 shilling calld LoG42. The other was the New Quay brewery.

I would say the most British Beers I've had in California are June Lake's Deer Bear Brown Ale and from Santa Barbara, Figuero Mountain Davey Brown Ale. I'm trying to remember the last time I saw anyone do hand drawn in the US.

Fort Point Kolsch (SF?) is my favorite real beer. My spousette and I mainly drink non-alcoholic beer (Erdinger or similar) as I like the taste of beer but don't care to ever get drunk again. When not drinking Fort Point I'm equally likely to drink a Guinness Stout, oddly the opposite of Fort Point's light taste. I've found I almost never like any beer that has a "fruity" taste. My son-in-law has opened a Brazilian Restaurant and I occasionally will sample one of the 20+ beers, but after a while I just go back to what I think are simple beers.

I only know of one place in Santa Monica that has the true cask ales, occasionally. There's one in the Valley and one in Torrance where I met The Knack, and installed body side moldings for him, in exchange for a couple of pints, LOL!

Ah, but is it a Kölsch? You'll note is called KSA, Kölsch Style Ale.

You are right, SF. The art on the can is reminiscent of the truss work on the Golden Gate bridge above Ft Point, but the brewery is at Chrissy Fields, and the tap room in the ferry building at Embarcadero and Market (or it was when I was there 18 months ago).

I like the KSA, a sharp, dry, fruity beer but I am too a stout drinker. My go-to stouts are Sweet Henrietta from Cleophus Quealy, and Calf-eine from Half Moon Bay Brewing Company. Both are coffee milk stouts.

Damn, I spent two nights in Torrence, and didn't know there was can she to be had. I was stopping by at a friend's on my way to San Diego. Had a great time at the Lyons Air Museum. The local car museum had no Subarus, it was all Italian sports cars and American muscle cars.
