I'm late to this thread but enjoying catching up while drinking a Weihenstephaner Hefeweiss. Kronenbourg 1664 up next and then I'll have to cut myself off. Darn work. I'm also partial to Red Stripe since a visit to Jamaica a few years back. It looks like my fridge is empty of Hoegaardens right now but that is not usally the case. How many have I named? 4? Hmm, I do like the hefeweissen and light wheat beers....hmm....I'll go with Blue Moon not because I love it as much as the others I named but that's what I'll order most often when out.

Chas and I went to a local bar with Peg and they were out of this. The waitress said that the brewery was back-ordered even. WTF?

My local connection hasn't been getting any 90 Minute in for the last couple of weeks - still hunting for the elusive 120 Minute although I have heard the amount being distributed is so slim that the chances are just that - slim to none.

BTW: Founder's Brewery - Dirty Bastard has been a great alternative.

Avery Collaboration Not Litigation



COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Salvation. The name of two intricate Belgian-style ales created by us, Vinnie Cilurzo of Russian River Brewing and Adam Avery of Avery Brewing. After becoming friends a few years ago, we realized that we both had a Salvation in our line-ups. Was it going to be a problem? Should one of us relinquish the rights? "Hell no!" we said. In fact, it was quickly decided that we should blend the brews to catch the best qualities of each and create an even more complex libation. In April 2004, in top-secret meeting at Russian River Brewing (well actually it was packed in the pub, and many were looking over our shoulders wondering what the hell was going on), we came up with the perfect blend of the two Salvations. Natalie, Vinnie’s much more significant other, exclaimed, "We should call this Collaboration, not Litigation Ale!" "Perfect!" we shouted. We celebrated deep into the night, (or is it morning?). Fast forward to November 14, 2006. After talking about it for over 2 years we finally decided to pull the trigger and Vinnie flew out to Avery to brew his Salvation exactly as he does in his brewery. This was blended with Avery’s Salvation December 11th, 2006. We hope you enjoy it as much we enjoyed brewing and blending it.

Batch 1 (January 2007) - 8.99% ABV
Batch 2 (February 2008) - 8.72% ABV
Batch 3 (February 2009) - 8.97% ABV
Batch 4 (February 2010) - 8.91% ABV

************************************************

Batch #3... Mmmm...

At lunch I bought a couple of six packs, Leffe Blond and Breckenridge Vanilla Porter. I will have to put a couple in the freezer when I get home so I have a couple cold ones for floating in the pool later this evening.

From someone else's review:

As you can see in the picture, there is nice label that was made to look as though it was hand written with all the info on it.

The hop selections used include Saaz, Styrian Goldings, and Amarillo for the boil. It was then dry hopped with Styrian Goldings. Brewed on May 18, 2010 this bottle has a best by expiration of 3 years to the date. It weighs in at a measly 9.5% abv. Cork and caged with a decorative wrapping this special edition brew has a similar appearance as its generic relative. A hazy golden-sunshine hue with a billowing egg shell white head that looked like the top of a lemon marainge pie.

Contrary to the original Duvel, the hops do not get lost behind the yeast, but rather stand out in a big way. They still help to retain an earthy, spicy, herbal, floral aspect to the beer, however there is much more pronounced, crisp, and clean. The abv provides some muscle as it is a little hot on the nose. Sweet light malt notes give some depth as the yeast is still an ever-present part of the aroma.

My first sip was hoppy and glorious. After about half a glass I got used to the taste and other features started to come more vividly. The bitterness was that of a grassy, lemon, herbal character with a somewhat noble finish. Like a fresh Pilsner the Saaz combined with the Styrian Goldings to create that fresh earthy component while the Amarillo gave a minor citrus flare. The yeast was bold and vibrant with a bready, spicy notes and a faint sour finish. Champaign-like carbonation yielded a bubbly mouthfeel that was lively and happening.

I preferred this rendition over the original and green Duvel beers. The hops blend with the yeast making for a very energetic Belgian brew.

Wanted to add few beers to the list that I have just tired over the last couple of weeks that I have found to be pretty darn good:

1. Chief Black Haw Porter - Lake Mills, Wisconsin - Tyranena Brewing Co.
2. Porter - Chico, Ca. - Sierra Nevada - I use to drink this beer a lot when I lived in Chico but haven't for years and just rediscovered why I drank it so much while in Chico.
3. Ipswich Oatmeal Stout - Ipswich, Ma. - Mercury Brewing Co.

I will go against the majority here and state outright that I typically dislike the majority of ales available and absolutely will not drink anything associated with the Belgian brewing tradition. I spent my formative years drinking Canadian and German beer on their home soil and have a very hard time considering anything that's not a true lager "beer." At the same time, I know this is something that's "me" and certainly don't begrudge any of you all of the fine beer you've listed above.



That said, I had a unique encounter this afternoon. I stopped at a grocery store that I typically do not visit and was astounded to see three boxes of Boulevard's "Boss Tom's Golden Bock" on the shelf. This beer is typically available here only during April and May, so it was quite a pleasant surprise to see it sitting there at the end of July.



Anyway, my top five American beers, in no particular order, would be:



Boulevard Boss Tom's Golden Bock



Sierra Nevada Glissade



Sierra Nevada Summerfest



Boulevard Bob's '47 Oktoberfest



Tie: People's Brewing Pilsener/Upland Oktoberfest



I can't do a list of my favorite beers because there is no way to rank the top breweries in Franconia, let alone Bavaria, let alone Germany.
