I Need beer recommendations

Discussion in 'Beer Talk' started by BeerBeerBeer, Feb 22, 2013.

  1. Hi there,
    a new beer store have opened yesterday, and I don't know what should I buy there.

    Here is the photo from their website:


    Which beers do you recommend on?

    I spy with my little eye some Brooklyn black chocolate stout.

    I can't see nada on my iPad.
  4. Is it worth buying? 'Cause it costs like 4.5$ for 0.3 liter bottle.

    Hmmm...not to sound like a smart a** but that is a little bit of a vague question don't ya think? What types of beer do you like? I see some Belgian beers there (Chimay) that i would get if I were in the mood for a Belgian..
    mp19 and Kyrojack like this.
  6. I don't like the heavy beers, like Murphy's. My favorite is Weihenstephan hefeweissbier , I don't like pilsners, lagers and that fizzy mouthfeel.

    "good" beer usually costs more than your average beer. I find that for me personally that any beer that peaks my interests and taste buds has a higher price than your average run of the mill beer. Seems as though my starting price point for a 6er of "good" beer is about $8.00. Bomber $5. Please understand that I am not trying to say that the pricier the beer the better but I am saying that there is a lower threshold where you get below the figures I mentioned the quality of the beer is not quite so good.

    Try some IPA's or Double/Imperial IPA's. This is a very popular style. Not "heavy" as you say and not "fizzy" like a pilsner. Do they have Sierra Nevada Torpedo? That is a good one that represents the style and has a pretty low pricepoint. $7-$9 usually for a 6pk.

    Show us the loons! Show us the loons! I definitely see Lindeman's way to the back w/ its' paper wrapping but that's all I can make out for Belgians. :)

    They got any Ayinger? You'd probably like their beers if you like Weihenstephaner.

    That Brooklyn Monster Ale (barleywine) is quite tasty. Israel's got a great selection of Brookyn it seems.

    Oooh, Corona on the bottom.
  10. Ofcourse, the average lagers here are like 2$ for 0.5 liter. I have no problem paying 5$ for a beer, as long as I won't get disappointed.

    We don't have Sierra Nevada here, are there any other good beers in this style?

    They don't have Ayinger, I've heard it's great though.
    I'll find out some information about the Monster Ale.
    Yes, this beer store is one of the largest in Israel, located in Tel Aviv.
    I've heard some bad things about Corona unfortunately...

    I think Schneider & Sohn Aventinus would be right up your alley if they have it (can't really make out the picture too well on my phone)

    I've heard awesome things about Duvel Triple Hops. I'd be all over that shit if it was me shopping in that store.

    When I see beers like Fuller's London Pride or ESB sitting on a shelf without refridgeration I just hope that they are "display only" like the fake desserts that some restaurants use.

    Get Duvel! It's awesome. I see it in the picture. The Chimay's are good too. If you want something easier to drink try Hoegaarden. It's a witbier and it's delcious.

    Ah Tel Aviv - one of my favorite cities. I miss Israel dearly, to this day my favorite place I have ever visited. I remember mostly drinking a ton of wine when I was there for some reason. Cant wait to go back there as I have family that still lives there. As for the beer, go with the Chimay Grande Reserve (Blue) if they have it.

    This store's in TA? I'm going in acouple months, wines great there and all but it would be nice to hit this place up for my beer fix...
  34. Go straight to the middle shelf and check out the top 2 rows. Pick out a nice Belgain ale like St. Bernardus, Chimay, or Westmalle.

    A belgian is the choice if you want something special and want to spend a little bit of cash. Anything from the middle top shelf will do you fine. But if you want to drink a few and enjoy your weekend grab that 6er of brooklyn brown and don't forget to grab some of those free sample pastries!

    I'd go nutso on the Belgian section, which is the 2nd section of the shelving unit from the right. Chimay, St. Bernardus, Le Trappe, Duvel - all delicious, classic Belgian beers.

    I can't tell much of what's to the left of that.

    I was wondering if that was actually a Thomas Hardy. It looks more like a key hanging from that string than a medallion. :confused:
