    I'm usually hard-pressed to answer the question "What's your favorite beer?" because it changes so frequently, but Hi-Wire's Bed of Nails Brown Ale is so glorious, that it's easily my favorite right now.

    I'll have to remember that one. If you're into browns, I'd recommend the Dogfish Head Indian Brown. It's wonderful. And good year round.

    I'm taking a tour of the new Sierra Nevada brewery here in Mills River, NC tomorrow. Mmmm, fresh beer sampled straight from the barrel.

    I just had a Boulevard Wheat Amber Ale and a I.P.A Single-wide. Excellent.

    Picked up a four-pack of Great Lakes Nosferatu. Really coming around on Great Lakes as a brewery. Was never particularly excited about their beers in the past, but between this one, their Oktoberfest and Elliot Ness (Vienna lager), I'm becoming a big fan.

    Tried a 90 minute IPA today from Dogfish Head. I don't see how it's worth $10 for a four pack.

    Love this beer. Glad you are coming around. Have you tried the Burning River?

    Yeah, I thought it was good... but not that much better than stuff I can get for cheaper.

    Re: Beer Thread :Spinoff

    I am trying to acquire a taste for Chimay's stuff. Had a bottle of the Cinq Cents last night. Have to say the carbonated thing threw me off a bit. Liked it, but I don't think it did enough to pull me away from my three current infatuations and go-to brews:

    Victory Prima
    Sierra Nevada Torpedo
    Anchor Steam Porter

    I've given up on acquiring a taste for Chimay's. It doesn't even taste like beer. I can drink almost any kind of beer but this is why I say "almost"

    I was at Deweys in Oakley a couple weeks ago and noticed Upland's Bad Elmer's Porter there. It's probably the beer they distribute most widely from their Bloomington brewery. Upland's got some nice ales and they bought the recipe for Champagne Velvet (once brewed in Terre Haute), which they brew regularly now. Had a glass of it last night, a nice, light pils.

    Recently exchanged some local micro brew from my area with a friend in the Cincy area. For a pliny, racer 5 and a couple others I received several Cincy brews. Being a IPA fan I asked for hop heavy assortment. The two I've tried already are Mystic Mama from Jackie O's and a PsycHOPathy from MadTree. The Mystic mama had a fantastic aroma while the bitter taste with a citrus finish of PsycHOPathy was very pleasing. Well done.

    I totally forgot to mention that my wife and I went to the Beefsteak Club dinner at the old Hudepohl Bottling Building on E. McMicken in OTR. That building was where the original brewery was, and then of course the facility moved to Queensgate sometime in the mid twentieth century. But the bottling building was used for administrative offices up through the sixties. For those who know the area, it's the former free store food bank building, a block from McMicken and Vine.

    It was a great dinner, a fundraiser for the Brewery District. And we got to take a tour of the old tunnels that still exist under the parking lot behind the building. They were originally the tunnels of the Buckeye Brewing Co., which I think was one that may have merged with another to become Hudepohl. Anyway, the guys giving us the tour said there are dozens of these tunnel networks under the OTR and downtown area, dating from the early lagering days prior to refrigeration. They said breweries would buy adjacent buildings and lots, filling an entire block with subterranean lagering tunnels.

    A little off-topic (but germane to SunDeck's avatar), Bockfest is just around the corner.

    Two weekends I'm sure to make it to Cincinnati each year: Opening Day and Bockfest. Strong beer and goats!
