Now that the guests are gone...red IPA I made about three years ago that's kept really well.
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".
I believe you. And I envy you that you live in a pub.
My bar takes up a large part of the basement of my home ,so i
guess i do live in a pub. But the brew pub is down the street. I dont have a serious drinking problem ,but i do take my beer seriously.
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.
I dont even drink heineken ,thats been there for years.I built this bar about 30 yrs ago. Used to be 8 barstools. These 4 are the survivors.
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:
Allagash Curieux (barrel-aged tripel)
St. Bernardous Watou Tripel
Tripel Karmeleit (a real bargain, here)
St. Bernardous Tripel (regular, green label)
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.
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.
Sounds like the Goose Island Bourbon County Stout I tried a few weeks back.
EDIT : Ok i just read your review. Sounds like its well worth a try.

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.
would love to try CBS on tap usually a different and way better anything on tap
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.
Yesterday’s treat, Brasserie Achouffe N’Ice Chouffe.
I had a few Sebago Brewing Company Slick Nick's this afternoon while watching my Patriots beat up on the Chargers.
i too watched the pats open a can of whip a -- on the chargers with a few of these. real nice brew
