I have a couple friends that are gluten free, so I've tried a couple types. Redbridge is pretty good and if you can find it dogfishead tweason is great.

Guess I will be hitting up every store in the Midtown/Westport/Plaza area since they are byfar the more influencial districts oh and will be swinging by Trader Joe's as well. Maybe I can sweet talk my liquor store into carrying them IF I like them. I am not really a beer drinker but loved Boulevard unfiltered wheat so much. It boils down to beer or cinnamon roll and sandwich once every 9 days.....lol the choices I have to make

I recently learned why I don't like Absolut vodka but love Monopolowa: Monopolowa is made from potatoes, not grain. It tastes smoother and sweeter to me, no freaky aftertaste. I wonder if that was the gluten I was tasting in the other one...

I now have a new favorite (for now :wink: ) black stout: Fort George Cavatica Stout. http://www.fortgeorgebrewery.com/beers/ ... ica-stout/ Brewed in our own Astoria, Oregon, it's dark, rich, and potent without being thick or sweet. At 8.8%, it'll knock you on your hindquarters but it'll be a fun ride. And at less than three dollars per pint, it's also an affordable one. The black can is decorated with arachnnids and prose, so you'll have something to read while you descend into ecstasy.

Fort George Brewery says of this concoction: An immense, bold, black as night, American stout beauty; Cavatica is no dry Irish anything, one sip and you’ll surely take notice of what you’re drinking. The name honors this brewer’s affinity with arachnia. Be forewarned, this beer will stain your clothes. This is Fort George’s house stout that has gained a reputation for being mighty and contagious among the locals. Thank goodness they ship it to Portland.

Note: goes freakin' well with dark chocolate with orange peels in it.

Hmm I wonder if that is exported around the country or not? I will have to try next time Im back in Oregon. I have cut down on my drinking a lot in the last couple of weeks. I feel good, but I miss it. The cut down wasn't even intentional I have just seen less of a few big drinker friends lately, thats not intentional either. I head to Googa Mooga Festival which is a food, drinking, and music fest, this weekend. So I will have some updates on new beers i'll try over the weekend posted soon.

Just when I thought the deep, dark, black stouts were awesome enough, they just got awesomer. Stone Brewery's Imperial Russian Stout is as regal as it sounds. It pours blacker'n asphalt and goes down sweet as molasses on a warm plate of pancakes. The 10.5% ABV dances a slow winter tango with a whole lotta roasty-cocoa-coffee goodness. This is a rich, sexy beer. Make sure you're laying down when you bring the brown glass bottle up to your lips. You're gonna wanna lay there all night long.

It's the tenth anniversary of the birth of this dark lovely: http://www.stonebrew.com/irs/
It emerged victorious from a brutal naming war with the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau: http://blog.stonebrew.com/?p=3135

Plus, the label is just freakin' cool.

Tried a Pauwel Kwak Belgian over the weekend. It was really tasty. Check out this ridiculous bunsen burner contraption you used to drink it out of, I enjoyed using the wooden handle.

Is that a pint? In the photo, with no frame of reference, it kinda looks like those gigantic things the Brits sometimes quaff....http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yard_of_ale

Ok found a grocery store that carries Redbridge a gluten free beer.... I have to admit for being a Anheiser Busch product it tastes like beer minus the bitter bite!!!! Even my mom loves it and has agreed that this is our new beer of choice :)

Synny, nice. My friend put in a request at ht hood meadows ski resort every weekend for an entire season and now they actually have redbridge on tap there. Pretty rad of them.

Baby Herc, What is that thread called where you listed coconut milk quinoa recipe? I made my own take on it yesterday and it was really good. I want to see how you did it again and comment on that thread as well.

ooooh hemp seed! Fancy, I want to try. I just had dogfish head gluten free tweason'ale. I like it a lot. Its a little like an IPA but not too bitter. Has a nice euro flavor, kinda like a french or polish style brown, but lighter and hoppier.
