Fathead's Holly Jolly Christmas Ale...solid!
Always good to see this thread resurface.
Last night, I had a Samuel Adams Triple Bock. Believe me when I tell you to NEVER TRY THIS BEER. Horrendous. I was pessimistic going in, as it is described as an "ale brewed with maple syrup." Someone gave it to me, and I felt compelled to try it. Absolutely foul.
After that, I had a Kwak. Definitely recommend that one.
It is Christmas time in my mind. My next trip will include...
Breckenridge Christmas Ale
Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale
Southern Tier 2XMas
Haven't had the Southern Tier, but it is recommended.
The Great Lakes Christmas Ale is already bought. Can't wait.
Found 2 new ones today at Whole Foods.
North Peak HooDoo Midwest wet hop IPA. 99 ibus and 9%. Surprisingly malty for balance but leaves a little bit bitter. I like most from this brewery in Traverse City, MI. Their session ale is really good.
Sierra Nevada Narwhal. It is like Founders Breakfast Stout but cheaper, higher alcohol content at 10.2% and very black and thick. I like it but would not consume the 4 pack in one night- very heavy. Try it.
Sam Adams Triple Bock was way ahead of its time....in the 90's.
It has not aged well at all, from most accounts it is now undrinkable. I had it then and it was not bad at all. Strong, there was nothing like it and it came in a cool blue bottle.
Today was good, I found newly released Founders Bolt Cutter, Brooklyn Black Ops, Goose Island Bourbon County Stout and Great Lakes Blackout Stout. No cash left, but some awesome beers...
Ok guys I figured this was the best place to ask...
where in State College can I find a case of 'Guinness Foreign Extra Stout'
...need it for a secret santa thing & Nittany beverage doesn't have it.

Great Lakes Christmas Ale
Ah, Westvletern 12. Longtime lurker, first time poster. It only took the world's best beer to pull me out of hiding. I work in Belgium a lot and have driven to the St Sixtus abbey cafe for Westvletern while over there. What a treat.
Just popped open an IPA I brewed. Man that's some fine beer if I say so myself.
Your beer knowledge is always appreciated in this thread.
I am a huge fan of Westvleteren 12. Only had it once, but that was enough to know how good it is.
I wish I could get to one of those places today to get it.
Bought this last weekend for some family members that were in town. Perfect combination of Christmas Ale and bourbon-enhanced beers.

I have trouble drinking a beer that I can't pronounce, but I will try it next time I see it...love the Belgians.
Lagunitas Brown Shugga'...thumbs up.
I like everything from them. Also, I've been enjoying the various Southern Tier Imperials recently, big fan.
Screw it, I'm going to go grab one from the fridge right now.
Here's a different one. OV-RAL.
Mikkeller and TO OL. Brewed at DeProef.
"American Style Imperial Pale Ale".
With the crazy Brett yeast its not.
Funky as hell and 10.5%.
Is this the beer made in Akron?
Yes. Thirsty Dog, which was founded by one of Great Lakes BC's original founders, IIRC.
Thanks 42, I thought there was a connection to Great Lakes.

Actually had this last night at around 1am when I was forgetting that I have a baby to wake up with in the morning and thought it was smart to hang out at the WOB at Easton. Tasty, not spectacular (and it cost about as much as Chimay), but very very good.

Not gonna lie. Did not go through the whole thread to see who said what. But gotta say(now damn close to impossible to find) Great Lakes Christmas Ale this year was beyond fantastic. And the snow drift vinilla porter from leinenkugel is a pretty good drop also.

Success without honor is an unseasoned dish; it will satisfy your hunger, but it won't taste good.
The GL Christmas is top notch this year, really really good. Of course I love all Christmas beers, by favorite seasonal.
