    Beer Thread :Spinoff

    As I start this I am actually drinking one of these.




    Gonna buy something well crafted for Thanksgiving. Any suggestions for something available in the west central Indiana area? I might drive the hour long trip to Bloomington to get it.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    Leinenkugel makes a Fireside Nut Brown only in November and December. I have only found 1 six pack this year so far. It's a "lighter" dark beer (if I can say that) with faint caramel hint. Will fill you up quick, very good.

    I love how a case of Yuengling only cost $1 more than Bud Light. That's fantastic!

    I'm not a fan. Too many flavors fighting for my attention.

    I like DT a lot too. Have you tried their Christmas Ale, 'Noel?' That stuff is downright magical.

    Good beer and reasonably priced. I had the Leinenkugel Winter Sampler 12 pack a couple weeks ago and this was the best of the four beers in it. The Honey Wheat was also good.

    Everyone in my area are flipping out over that stuff, since it's new here. Is it that good? I'll have to try some, preferably draft, since that's how I roll.

    Hey buddy,

    Yes, the Yuengling is good beer in my opinion. I am also impressed at the pricing as it is around the same price as the Miller Lite that I drink most often. I was in the back patio last night talking to my neighbor and he was drinking a Yuengling Light (Lite?).

    IMO, Yuengling is a very average and highly overrated beer. I thought this the first time I tried it 10+ years ago. When classifying Yuengling, I'd put it in the same class as the Bud and Miller Lite's of the world. It's a very light amber lager. I'm not sure why people are flipping out over it, honestly. It's cheap and it's beer, but that's about it. To me, it doesn't have a ton of flavor and seems watered down. But, that's coming from someone used to much stronger beers like Great Lakes, Sam Adams, Sierra Nevada, etc. so take it for what's it worth.

    I bought Yuengling the other day to try it again and to save a few bucks. I was hoping it was going to be better than I remembered. Unfortunately, it wasn't. I doubt I'll buy it again.

    On a different note, I went to Zip's last Saturday and had the Great Lakes Christmas Ale on draft again. Fantastic as usual. I try to make an annual trip there for a burger and the beer.

    Yeah, Yuengling is overhyped, but for its price range it is still much better than Bud Light IMO...

    Bud heavy please. I think Yuengling is good, but not a world beater. I was pumped to try it, the hype made it sound like it should taste like Paula Dean was making a meal in your mouth, I was a bit disapointed.
