The Best Strictly Brewpub Creation You've Had....

    In early 2012 my wife and I were at 3 Floyd's. We had as much grub as we could handle from the kitchen and twice as many drafts. But one I'll never forget (or have seen on their menu since) is Cimmerian Sabertooth Berzerker. To explain it in one sentence, it was Imperial Zombie Dust. Tasted almost exactly the same, but with a bit more burn, and just like Z.D., so hoppy it was sweet. Around 10%, give or take. Sorry I don't remember the exact measurements. Just wanted to hear some similar stories about a beer that you realize you probably will never have again.

    I'd also like to hear what other people who have had this one thought about it. Thanks!!!

    IBUsive at Fatheads. One might classify it as a more intense Headhunter.

    Made it to the final four in this years National IPA championships.

    Best IPA I have ever had. Possibly my favorite beer in total.

    After this weekend, I'd say that would go to Voodoo's Grande Negro Voodoo Papi. It's Big Black Voodoo Daddy with vanilla beans, cinnamon and aged on ghost chili peppers. Very enjoyable and was like Hunahpu with a spicy kick added.

    Most recently, Blot out the sun at fff. Billed as a stout but this one is something more, a stout that has sweet maltiness and an unconventional citrus hop profile. Bitterness is there but is mild and pleasant. At around 10% abv this one is dangerously drinkable, I could go on and on....but i'm drooling now.

    Red hot shocker from darkhorse, believe it's just an ale but as it's fermenting they throw in red hots, depending on if you like cinnamon or not this beer is either delicious or disgusting haha, I've always loved it
     
  9. Pizza Port's 'Bacon and Eggs'. It was a coffee stout, very nice. My wife would vote for their 'Skid Mark Brown'.

    No question, Tröegs Scratch #58 - Triple Mango IPA. Only got to have it once before it was gone but I absolutely loved it. I'm praying this follows the same path as Perpetual IPA and Flying Mouflan and ends up in regular rotation as at least a seasonal release.

    I saw the post headline and came here to say Cimmerian Sabertooth Berzerker from FFF as well. The last time they released a batch it tapped out in a day or two. They need to make that beer more often.

    That 2 Live Grand Cru #1 was amazing too. Big Black Voodoo Daddy blended with Black Magik and aged in Pappy barrels.

    Yes it was. My girlfriend ordered that and I ordered the Papi. She loved the Papi so much that she switched and I got to finish her 2 Live Grand Cru. I didn't really have a complaint about that.

  19. I very rarely buy any "flavored" or spiced beers, yet look forward to hopefully seeing Gose, Jewish Rye or Coffee & Cream Stout on the beer board when I walk into the Triumph Brewery in Princeton, NJ.

    To this day, it is the most amazing and memorable beer that i have EVER had.

    Goose Clybourn's Xocolatl aka Mayan Gold is the best English barleywine, and therefore the best beer, that I have ever had.

    Pretty much any of the big beers from the Bull & Bush fall into this grouping.
    In particular, Pimp my Rye, Legend of the Liquid Brain, and Royal Oil stand out.

    Local option sent a keg of their gose over to against the grain and it was phenomenal. Perfect representation of the style to me. I could drink it like water.

    Raspberry RIS from Wedge. They brew it every winter and it's recipe is designed around it being nitro'd. One of the best stouts brewed in NC and he brews a shit-ton of it so it lasts for a couple months.
    Also, Rye Rye Rocco at CBC. Amazing.

    Pannepooch, at Hair of the Dog. "International Beer project with the fine folks at Brouwerij De Struise, Pannepooch. The famous Pannepot, brewed in Portland, and aged in brandy barrels for 9 months." Hands down the greatest beer I have ever tasted in my life. There was so much going on from just the first sip that my palate nearly exploded. They're going to bottle it this fall for their 20th anniversary beer. Apparently there's a new keg of it on tap now, shhhh I'm going there after work today and I need there to be at least one glass left.

  38. That's easy, Cambridge Brewing Company's Cerise Casee.
    No wait, CBC's The Colonel Porter.
    Crap, wait, I know - that Barleywine aged with Brett from the BW fest.
    Nope, ummmm, how about the Grisette (La Saisonniere) Will brewed last summer?
    Maybe the above beer aged with Brett (Brett Grissette)?
    Damn, how about almost everything on this list:
