Upcoming beers

You’ve noticed that I’ve been reviewing more beers lately. I’ll be doing a lot more of that over the coming weeks and months; part of what I’ve done with some of my Christmas and birthday money this year was buy a bunch of beer that I haven’t had before, and I plan to post a review and tasting notes for each.

I suppose if I’d made any New Year’s resolutions, this would be one: try as many new beers as I can!

Anyway, I thought I’d post a list of the beers I’ve bought recently to try. Not counting the ones I’ve already reviewed this year. (Not doing links, either… I’ll link them as I review them.)

  • Celis White
  • Alaskan Winter Ale and 2005 Smoked Porter
  • Otter Creek Copper Ale
  • Siletz Chocolate Porter and Winter Warmer Ale
  • Melbourne Brothers Strawberry
  • Pelican Brewery India Pelican Ale
  • Saison du Pont
  • Rogue FestivAle
  • Trappistes Rochefort 10
  • Dogfish Head Aprihop
  • North Coast 2004 Old Stock Ale
  • Anderson Valley Winter Solstice

I’ve also been eyeing Widmer’s Snow Plow milk stout and Goose Island Stout, which I saw at Fred Meyer…

Side note, to Central Oregonians: I’ve said this before, but I think Newport Avenue Market on the westside really has the largest and best beer selection in town.

    My advice is GO GET some Snow Plow. If you have a WinCo nearby, they have it for $5.88.

    I’m not crazy about the Celis beers (but others like them) offered by Michigan Brewing Company.

    The Goose Island Stout (and all of their others) are excellent – out of Chicago.

    Another good one to look for is Dragon’s Milk, brewed by New Holland in Michigan. They now only sell in 22 oz. bottles for a little over $7.00.
