I love the name "Arrogant Bastard".

Portland is full of brew pubs. One of my favorite beer names is "Old Knucklehead" made by Bridgeport Brewery. Every few years they name a new knucklehead and let his picture grace the bottles.

Hey everyone!

I still can't get arrogant bastard ale here in a six-pack. I can get it on tap at a local pub, or I can buy the way-too-big bottle of it at the beer store.

But, there are a few spots where you can buy a six-pack of the stone brewery IPA.

Lady J have you had it, then?

Don, what happened in Towton in 1461? Pardon my ignorance of european history.

I have littlek and enjoyed it very much. I'm a real lover of good microbrews and for some reason here where I live in Northern California, we not only have a good deal of microbreweries ourselves, but our finer beverage stores seem to stock a good many "out of staters" as well as imports.

I look forward to every March when we have "The Battle of the Brews" About 30 or so of our local microbreweries team up with about 20 of our finer restaurants and for about $30 you can go and drink and eat to your hearts content! It really IS a battle as well as the attendees get to vote on the favorite microbrew of the year. That's a prestigious title to have around these parts! Smile

I had a new beer this weekend in Chicago: "Bells."

I was told it's high alcohol content. It was pretty good, and did it's job nicely.

Bell's is from Kalamazoo, MI. They brew a broad range of excellent beers.

I saw something you may all be interested in (if it hasn't already been mentioned here: Double Bastard Ale, by the same folks who brew Arrogant Bastard. It weighs in at 10% alcohol. I found it at a local supermarket.

Clearly this is no session beer. You have been warned!

I've seen the double bastard, I think I've tried it too, funny I can't remember.

Lady J - Every year I impatiently await thec 2 month long availability of Anchor Xmas Ale. You live in a tasty area! We have a few good breweries around here, but not as many as out there.

Bell's eh? I'll keep an eye out for it.

I have sat at that Anchor Steam bar on more than one occassion and have never walked....errr....stumbled away disappointed! Their Christmas Ale IS yummy, isn't it? If I was actually going to BE here in March, I'd invite you out for the Battle. Alas, I believe by then I will be in another state, very, very parched! Smile

The Anchor Xmas Ale is always interesting, as they change the recipe every year.

As has been noted, Portland OR has many wonderful brew pubs. I plan to be there over T'giving. Have you been to the New Old Lompoc, boomerang? It's on NW 23rd, a bit past all the boutiques. I love one of their IPAs, C-Note...

I haven't been that far north in my brew travels. I have yet to still get through all of the ones in Northern California! I was in Portland not all that long ago too, darn it. Wish I had known you then D'artagnan, I would have taken your recommendation and gone there!

Another good brew with an evocative name: Smuttynose (Portsmouth, NH)

ABA might be an appropriate gift for our Chief Engineer.

Duly noted, George!

Lady J, have you been to the Anderson Valley Brewery? I gather that's worth the trip, though I've yet to go there. I have had their IPA, though. Great stuff!

That is one I have been to, yes. Right in Boonville which is not too far from where I am. They make a great Boont Amber and as well as their Poleeko Gold Pale Ale in addition to the IPA you mentioned. Funny, I really do look forward to the seasonals. They have a good Winter Solstice. Oh mon dieu! I won't have room in my refridgerator for anything but Winter Brews if I'm not careful this year! Smile I've already got a 6 pack of Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale to start off the line up this year!

I've had the Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale on tap at my pub here in Seattle, Lady J. It's crisp and refreshing!
