Red's Apple Ale

<< < (2/3) > >>

Jimmy K:
There have been a few apple beers put out in recent years - at least in the northeast such as Shipyard Applehead. Most are light lagers with overwhelming fresh apple flavor.
 
Funny story - I ordered one in a bar in Providence, RI once and the waitress asked "Would you like an 'east side rim job' with that?"  Is that legal? I thought.  :o   My friend said "What the hell, sure" and the glass came rimmed with caramel and dipped in brown sugar. It looked ... like the worst thing you can imagine from that name.

I'm headed that way this year - I'll make sure to scratch it off the list.

Actually, the only two things on the list are Cantillon and Westvleteren. After that, I'll have to do some research on what's close and worth going to.

theoman can chime in here more than me, but the only part of Delirium Bar worth going to is the Hoppy Loft at the very top of the building.

If you want beer mecca, go to Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas (http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/21739). Every time I'm there it's really great.

When are you planning to be in Brussels?

After reading the above reviews, all I can say is thank heavens I did NOT pick up a 6-pack for $6 yesterday when I was tempted at the grocery store.  I actually looked at the bottles and packaging trying to figure out what this stuff was, and who made it.  Nothing - no information.  So I figured it must be a bad idea.  Wise decision apparently.  I hate artificial apple alco-pops.  No better than Woodchuck.

Jimmy K:
It is a Miller-Coors product. I figured it must be a big beer brand if it was advertized during the superbowl.

The website is pretty ambiguous too, except for the 'Great Beer, Great Responsibility' logo at the bottom. There is only one brewery in Albany, GA that I can find - Miller.

Probably August - I told my wife we had to go to Europe before we had kids.

We each picked a country, and we're going to end up in Germany because her sister lives there.
