Best beer you've ever had.

  1. I don't want to go too overboard just yet with the praise, but I had Half Acre Daisy Cutter last night for the first time and it's legitimately one of the finest beers I've ever had. I'm going back in on some tonight to confirm, but I'm fairly certain it's already in my top 3 favorites. It's outstanding.

    Stone Pale Ale was the first "true" craft brew that I tried back in 2000 so it holds a certain place in my heart for favorite. But if I truly thought about it with feelings aside I would probably pick Bell's Hopslam.

    Apple Brandy Hunapu with Pappy Van Winkle 23 on the side, followed by 07 Fou Foune on tap.

    FBS is easily my favorite beer. I liked Heady Topper a lot, but I only had that once. For nostalgic purposes, I love Cara Pils.

    BB4D is the best, but Dragonmead Killer Bee my current guilty pleasure.

    Duck Duck Gooze is the highest review I've given, so I suppose it must be that, but generally my favorite beer is the one that's currently in my glass

    KRBC Citra DIPA. I'm driving five hours to the brewery, each way, to pick some up next weekend. I've got other beers like Lost Abbey's Cable Car that I think are pretty spot on for there style, but I could drink Citra DIPA all the time and not get tired of it.

    Heady Topper, but Breakfast Stout, Wake N Bake, Temptation, Zombie Dust, and Lagunitas Sucks are all very high on my list.

    Overall mind blowing beer experience...Founders BB Sumatra Mountain Brown

    A pretty easy access beer that makes my lips tremble after each sip...Kuhnhenn BB 4D

    I've had so many good beers...this is really difficult. But that Sumatra...Oh that Sumatra...

    Gotta be Zombie Dust, all things considered. Not only does it taste and smell fucking amazing, it's drinkable as all hell.

    3 Floyds Conquistador de Muerte. Awesome peppers, chocolate and bourbon will slap yo tastebuds silly!
  24. Probably 1998 vintage JW Lees Harvest Ale. It left me picking up the pieces of my shattered mind.

    It's gotta be Rare Bourbon County Brand Stout, but Fantome's flagship saison also comes to mind
