Kane Head High
This is a tough question, but I came up with five contenders (RR Temptation, GI Matilda, Surly Bender, Pretty Things Jack D'or, and Bell's Two Hearted)... Assuming I would still have to pay for the beer, I cut Temptation first... Next, I only had Surly Bender once and while my recollection is stellar I don't want to make a mistake so that's eliminated next... Next, Jack D'or is probably least versatile of the remaining three, so that one goes bye bye... Down to a head to head between Goose Island Matilda and Bell's Two Hearted, I have to eliminate Goose Island Matilda and declare Bell's Two Hearted my choice... While I'm not an insance hophead, I can't imagine going a year without hops... Even though that is one ugly fish to stare at for 365 five days, it's my final answer... Cheers...
If you don't feel like reading my logic above, the cliff notes version is Bell's Two Hearted...
I'm not gonna go into as much detail as philbe311 did...but he got the right answer...Two Hearted.
Edit: I see CellarGimp agreed as I was typing my post. Two Hearted FTW!
As tempting as it is to say Heady or KBS, I think a year of those beers exclusively would burn me out on them forever. So I want something that is mdidle of the road, easy to drink, and I have loved for a long time.
Long Trail Ale
Sierra Nevada Northern Hemisphere Harvest.
Tank 7 or Mirror Pond, it's a toss up.
I'll stick with what I can actually buy locally and would buy if available year round.
Wake-n-Bake or Narwhal
I hate these questions. I can never answer them Even if i can then i change my mind in a week anyway.
Creme Brulee or Pumpking?
I don't know, really. Probably something easy drinking like Lagunitas Pils or Sam Adams Boston Ale.
I third Zombie Dust.
Id rather have none than just one
My initial thought was FBS as well...but I think it might be hard to get through the summer on Stouts alone so I'll say DFH 90 minute. What a boring year though.
Celebration everyday please
Heady. No other beer compares.
Zombie Dust, Heady or SN Torpedo
Lot's of great choices made already but I want my only beer different than yours so I'm going Odell Myrcenary.
LaCumbre Elevated IPA or Hoponious Union
Orval. It's so different between fresh and aged it'd be like cheating and having 2 or more different beers.
Hill Farmstead Susan
Hoponius Union, or Fuller London Porter
It would need to be something I could enjoy any time of year and be able to have 1 or 10 in one session. That being said...Victory Hopdevil.
Deschutes's Red Chair
Brooklyn Lager, or Victory Prima Pils.
OOH, good choice!
I think I may have actually come close to this a few years ago with Allagash White when I first discovered it, so as they say "dance with the girl that brought you"
That's difficult... because my hot LI summer beers are very different from my chilly winter beers.
I suspect I would choose either BCBS or Mikeller weasel poop... and then drink sangria in the pool instead of my usual koko brown.
Well I basically drink ZD year round. So... Bbpt5.
Orval, easy pick.
Tough question... but Surly Abrasive would do the trick.
+1 to this. Very tough choice but it's such a great beer.
Probably DFH 90 Minute. Honorable mention to Troeg's Hopback.
Alpine Hoppy Birthday, pretty much the perfect beer for all occasions.
