|SSPey||yes, the Toronado - great beers on tap (the one in SF, right?). I met a nice beer there in 1990, some sort of "Bittersweet" that looked like "Bitters Weet" written on the chalkboard. I was wondering if it was a wheat beer or what? It has been years since I visited the Toronado|

When in San Fran...
Anybody ever go to the Toronado Bar?
Sooo many taps so little time.
"boy am I glad I'm not driving."
Flydoc, Labatt Ice is smoother (Charlie would say light) - better for your head in the morning, if your going to sit down for a few.
And I don't even like beer ,

If you should find yourself in London, check out the Davy's pubs and sample a few jugs of "Old Wallop".
Avaiable by the half gallon copper jug, they give you as many pewter tankards as required and you just keep toppng up from the copper. Gets a bit difficult to keep track of how many actual pints you've had but it doesn't matter because it tastes great!

I live in Holland and close to the Belgium border. In some pubs overhere you can get over 70 different kinds of beer. My favourits are Palm (Dutch) and in summertime a Geuze (sour/fresh) from the Mort Subite brewery from Belgium.
I must says that I too tasted some good beers when I was in Michigan (The Brewery in Grand Rapis) and even Bud is nice if you are really thursty as you can't get drink on it. (or not really) In contradiction to a Belgium beer called Duvel (translated: devil). Not a really high alcohol percentage but a very very nasty bite. If you are not used to it you'd better stop after 2-3 bottles, but also a very nice taste.
If any of you might ever land up in my neighbourhood I will gladly spent an evening with you in one of these pubs.

I spent a few weeks in MI 1994 and my contacts there were friends with the brewer at Bells. yummy.
there are so many fine beers in the PNW that its hard to even start on this one, moreover a lot of breweries and beers are named after the rivers and fish we love. Lately I've been enjoying the Skagit IPA that has made its way to my local small-town grocery in Oregon.

The Dogfish Head IPAs are fantastic...but I really like IPAs.
And Ditto on the Ipswich Ale. It has been a while since I drank that beer. I will have to change that ASAP.
I tried the Long Trail "Double Bag" a few weeks ago at a bar in Portsmouth and I must admit that I love that beer as well (on draught).

My day-to-day- Sea Dog IPA, in my mug at the pub in Bangor;
Geary's Hampshire Special Ale, coming in at a whopping 7%;
Former favorite- Otter Creek Copper Ale- brewed in my last hometown;
Got to agree with Fly doc and the Ipswich- one of my all time favorites.
Anyone have the 60 minute or 120 Minute IPA from Dogfish? Like Barleywine, but tasty- Their worldwide stout is amazing, like port.

Michagain has some good beer.
Has anyone tried Bell's?

I had a Kirin at lunch on Wednesday.
A bit light for my taste, but it was better than Bud or Miller.
