    Same. I've long been taking a pic of each new one I've tried. If I ever get to organising all my digital data, I'm in for a massive shock, I suspect.

    Oh, did I put this in the wrong place? This falls under Lifestyle, Health, Fitness & Food, surely? I'll have to go through that thread. Since I joined up I've mostly just used the New Posts button, so I missed the sticky.

    I'd not caught the Entombed vid, that was fun.

    Not sure I've ever had a Berliner Weiße without the "Schuß" (flavoured syrup). Been years.

    Desert beers are the shizzle. I love Schneider Weiße's Aventinus Eisbock with chocolate cake or pudding. :nom: One of my very best mates was instrumental in getting me into more interesting beers and he introduced me to Evil Twin Imperial Biscotti Break stout. A true liquid pudding, that.

    He also raves about the Delirium Tremens, which I must try some time. I'm also into Belgian beers and I was very to be stricken by the real 'flu on a recent trip to the lowlands that severely curbed what I could try. It's. Just. Not. On. :cry:

    By way of return, here's my drinks fridge:



    As it's actually in the cellar I can refer to the stuff on the top as "cellared" and not feel quite as much of a pillock as that makes me sound.



    Yeah, I'm also a about beer.

    So in there I've got:
    Schneider Weiße: Tap 7 Original (their standard wheat beer), Aventinus (their doppelbock, possibly my favourite beer), Aventinus Eisbock (oh yeah baby )
    Possibly still a dark Weizen by Hopf
    Bayreuth Aktien Zwickl (Franconian Lager, sorta)

    That's all "normal" stuff (apart from the Eisbock) left over from parties, which also explain the alcohol-free Weizen and the (whisper it) Beck's Green Lemon.

    On top are some limited edition barley wines from Schneider ("Maries Rendezvous"), and Faust, as well as the latter's Eisbock and Jahrgangsbock. Over to the right you can see some of my shameful collection of empties, which over here are generally deposit bottles, and need sending round the recycling system again. Apparently a single regular beer bottle can do eight "tours of duty".

    Yeah Schneider Weiße tap 6 is one of my all time favourite beers. Almost as good as Kasteel but not quite.

    Delerium is good but I find it pretty pedestrian. Its a nice beer but its not going to make you think 'fuck me I am trying something mental here'. Its just a good 'vanilla' beer. The delerium cafe in brussels however...dear god its amazing. I was at a festival in brussels a few years back meaning I was in that place till 5 am 6 days in a row. over 4000 beers available in the one place (world record) and a great atmosphere. You must go if you havent been already.

    Anyway some pics of my own








    (this one was wild)




    (this was actually a barley wine)

    I also collect these and frame them from all over the world were i've been drinking beers. In there you have Brussels, Dublin, San Francisco, Saint Louis, Frankfurt, Glasgow, Melbourne, Hobart (Tasmania), San Diego, Chicago, Prague and probably some more - A Beer Odyssey!

    Yeah, in Berlin, people pretty much only ever drink Berliner Weisse with a syrup. The last time I brewed a Berliner Weisse (a pretty awesome one, actually), I had German raspberry and woodruff (Waldmeister) syrups, but I drank the beer without any syrup at all more often than not. I think most people aren't fans of sour beers, so they need the syrup to tone down the sourness and add a bunch of sweetness.

    I've been a pretty huge Belgian beer fan for at least 15 years now. My favorite Belgian beer styles are: Lambic, Gueuze, Flanders Brown Ale, and Flanders Red Ale, but I pretty much love any Belgian ale. Most people have only ever had abbey ales and the typical dubbels, tripels, etc. so they just assume "Belgian ale" means "Chimay and beers like it."

    Aaaaand, of course, experimental beers are just the most awesomest ever.

    Yeah to be fair its the trappist stuff I like. Belgian Ales I find not that interesting a lot of the time. Trappist Rochefort (6, 8 and 10), Westmalle, some Leffes amongst other things are what I'm after.

    My pics are now fixed thank fuck. Also this was a pretty crazy one:

    Makes me look pretty pedestrian, really! There are so many different breweries in this part of the world, it's not really the same thing as the "craft" scene, though that's definitely helped. As you can see, the mainstream stuff I like I can buy by the crate, so an Aventinus costs only about a euro...

    Of course the experimental/wild craft stuff is available here too, but the prices seem crackers, especially given that local(ish) beers are so cheap. That said, the most I've spent on a single bottle yet was on a Fullers' Vintage Ale (€10), and I did not regret that at all, it was a great taste explosion.

    My mate is into Brewdog, there isn't one down here yet, though there is already one in Berlin. I've been to one in Newcastle with him, and amongst other things tried sours I really liked. I have got pretty anal about food pairings recently. It makes all the difference. I almost never drink without eating something with it, or before it, mind.

    Yeah finding something you like that's reasonably priced often gets in the way of being more adventurous. Im that way with leffe.

    Brewdog is good. Their blackheart stout is good on draft when it's nitro. My only complaint with them is a lot of their more niche brews often come out as fairly uninteresting ipas probably because hipsters love ipa. Never bad but less wild than they would have you believe. 'Mr president' is a good double ipa from them

    Definitely. The most I've ever spent on a single bottle of beer was $40, but I've seen single bottles of beer going for more than $150. One brewery that I've always wanted to try but never have is Cascade, because most of their beers are between $40 and $60 a bottle. (For comparison, the most I've ever spent on a single bottle of wine is $100 and the most I've spent on a single bottle of whiskey is $250. Normally I never spend anywhere remotely near that much).

    Most of the craft beers I drink are about $3 or $4 a bottle for something more normal (as in IPAs, stouts, pale ales, blonde ales, etc.), $10-15 a bottle for something that takes a long time (a lot of sours are like that), and up to about $20 a bottle for something extremely unique (usually using very expensive ingredients and aged for a while).

    Craft beer is definitely a very expensive hobby.

    So like what Dominic said about the "local stuff being super cheap," here in the states you can buy a 24 pack of a macrobrewery's lager for about $10 to $13, while craft beers will range from $1 a bottle to, well, like I said above, over $100 a bottle. They're not really even in the same category. But I will say that all German lagers here in the states are imported, so their prices are usually at the lower range of craft beer prices. Pricier than any domestic macrobrewery lagers, but cheaper than most craft beers.
