    New Belgium is brewed local in Asheville, NC. Need to pay them a visit.
    Everything I have tried from them has been decent. Haven't had the Trippel yet. What was good and bad about it?

    Belgian Trippels and Quads are some of the best brews out there. Lots of strong competition in this category. This one was just so-so for me. Once you've had a good one you will know the difference. Ashful can point you toward some good ones.

    What's bad about them, is that they are not from Belgium.

    The best Belgian Quad iv ever had is made locally and served in a small brew pub where i live. The owner is a recent immigrant, you guessed it, from "Belgium".

    Nice, I still envy you. My "bar" consists only of a keg homebrew in a modified wine fridge.

    I will take the second chair from the left. You should take that Heineken thing away. It's horrendous.

    been reading some of the brews that some drink and had to try some. founders breakfast stout is definitely a winner. a friend was down in Virginia over the christmas to new years week and brought me a present. a seasonal box of 12 from starr hill brewery. it had 4 types of brew in it and i got to say i'm impressed i really liked what i drank. didn't try the IPA yet cuz i'm not a ipa guy but will try it. little red roostarr is so smooth

    Try the Founders KBS (Kentucky Breakfast stout) its so much Better. About $5 or more though.Founders CBS(Canadian Breakfast Stout) is the holy grail if you can find it ,expect to pay as much as $10 a bottle or $15 glass at a bar.

    I’ve not had the New Belgium tripel, but I’ve had several of their other brews, and they were... just okay. But since you asked, here are some of my favorites:

    Tripel:
    Allagash Curieux (barrel-aged tripel)
    St. Bernardous Watou Tripel
    Westmalle Tripel
    Tripel Karmeleit (a real bargain, here)
    St. Bernardous Tripel (regular, green label)
    Chimay Blanc

    Quad:
    La Trappe Quad
    Omegag Three Philosophers
    Sierra Nevada Ovilla
    St. Bernardous Abt.12

    Anything Rochefort is top-notch, but I left them off the list, since (at least around here) their pricing is just insane.

    I managed to get a growler of my favorite Belgian QUAD this weekend.Up until now the brewer kind of hoarded his supply and didnt offer growlers. As a frequent customer i convinced him to loosen up. Its listed at 10.1% ABV. But im sure thats not consistent batch to batch. This stuff is every bit as strong as the Dogfish 120 i have alcohol wise, which is 18% . Its like a great love ,Intoxicating!!!

    I have had great success with Irish Reds that I have made. We drank a 2 yr old one last fall and it was fantastic. It's become a house favorite.

    bourbon_county_header.jpg The Sports grill across the street has this on tap.
    Bourbon County Brand Reserve Stout (2018)From Goose Island
    It gets very good reviews as world class, from beer advocate. I may have to mosey over there and give it a try . At 15% ABV its a sipper,not a chugger.

    With my ,luck they will be fresh out by the time i get there. Another local brew pub (Bottleworks) had Founders CBS on tap for 2 weeks. Of course by the time i saw it listed they were fresh out. Was a bargain at $10 a glass vs $14 at the sports grill on my block. The best part about the Sports grill is i can walk home as its literally about 30 yards away.

    You’d need to move down this way. My local place had it on tap all last week, but with better options on tap, I didn’t have it.
