Same.

I WILL NOT eat wings without a beer. I don't see a point...they go together.

I go off the menu hot to help put hair on my chest

Generally though, I go Hot BBQ or Hot Buffalo. If I'm going something without heat, I will do the salt and vinegar dry rub.

I enjoy a variety of different flavors, including hot bbq and buffalo of all heat ranges (except burn-my-lips-off hot).

And, yes, MB, all MUST be enjoyed with beer.

A non-chain wing place I used to frequent in VA had some of the hottest garlic flavored wings I've ever tasted.

Hooter's has a dry rub wing, best thing they've got on the menu.

Side note: Ford's Garage. Great place, famous for their burgers; helluva tap list, rotating local brew menu. Ordered their "Cajun" chicken & shrimp mac... ****ing thing gave me the sweats, and this is coming from a guy that eats ghost peppers. Asked their manager if this was their normal recipe, apparently the cook messed up the dish :lol:

That Avery is great...a little over priced for the size and ABV, but that entire series is delicious.

I know I've touted D9 for their excellent sours (Systema Natvra and Cape Canavaral are two of my favorite sours period), but they make great other beer as well.

Their Swell Rider Tangerine Sessions IPA and Brown Sugar Brown Cow are awesome and well balanced beers. These and Anderson Valley's Blood Orange Gose are my go to beers. I always have a 6 of each in the fridge.

Their Hakuna Matata is their only bad brew I've had.

If you are a hop head.

Hopslam by Bell's is probably the best DIPA for the buck, IMO. Their newest version usually comes out around January, but it's great for the ABV and balance. Not too bitter and really good. If you see it around, I'd grab a bottle or 6.

If you're in the area, Big Storm just released their Oktoberfest and still has the Belgian flights (single through a 15% quintuple) available. It's a good time to swing by if you haven't checked them out before.

I don't frequent "Off-Topic" boards much but this thread was mentioned in a team discussion thread and I had to pop in. I love beer. Will try to post in this thread fairly frequently. I usually go to the craft beer store about once a week. Never had much of a "collection" because when I buy it I want to drink it, but i do have a few stouts that I've been able to put away and leave alone for a month or two now, list below.

Mostly a hophead. Big fan of Stone Enjoy By - Fresh IPA 10% ABV. Drank 4 during the Bengals game LOL, Friggin preseason.

Favorite new beer i've tried this year - Troegs Nimble Giant Double IPA. Super smooth and 9% ABV.

I'm currently aging:
Evil Twin - Mexican Cake Break - never had it but a buddy of mine raves about it. Gonna let it sit for a month or two
Deschutes Black Butte 29 Bday Reserve - Never had it, but it sounds fantastic. Cocoa, cinnamon and cayenne 50% aged in rum and boubon barrels
Avery Beast CRU - Belgian strong ale. 18% ABV. Yowsa.
Dog Fish Head Oak Aged Vanilla World Wide Stout - Really excited for this. Was able to grab 2.
Founders DKML - Malt Liquor aged in Bourbon barrels. Not the most tantalizing sounding, so I'll let it sit and mellow for a bit.

I know I'm bordering TLDR territory so I'll cut it out. Hooray beer.

When I first saw the press release for this, I thought for sure it was a joke. Aging that one has to be a tough call. I'm sure fresh it's hot and boozy as hell, but I don't know what aging malt liquor would be like. Definitely keep us updated.

I never miss an "Enjoy by" they are always fantastic. Did try Hopslam by Bells? It's pretty great for the abv.

I've aged a similar beer to the Evil Twin, Westbrook's Mexican Cake and I didn't think it enhanced it that much. IMO the best of the spicy chocolate beers is Prarie's Bomb, but that's just an opinion.

I really have had some success aging sours and farm saisons (Maggie's Balckberry Cobbler by Terrapin was great a year later). It does mellow out the booziness of bourbon barrel stuff, depending on the beer, can be good or bad.

I have been looking everywhere for the Dog Fish Head Oak Aged Vanilla WWS...Their beer for breakfast made me try everything they have...I hated and quit on my quest after drinking Olde School, but let me know how that turns out.

Welcome to the beer thread! I just started posting a few weeks ago and I'd classify myself as a sour/gose connoisseur. I enjoy all beer, though.

Love my lager beers though!!!!

That's a good enough excuse for me to go ahead and drink it haha. Popped it in the fridge this morning and will enjoy watching the game tonight.

Ever had 120min? Probably one of the more unique beer experiences IMO. 18-20% ABV. Which I really like because I can sit and drink one over the span of 45-60 minutes and it's like drinking 5 beers in one. So you catch a really nice relaxing buzz without feeling bloated, having to go pee, etc. Just super relaxing. People may see 18-20% ABV and think "let's get trashed", but it's a strong tasting beer so it's not one that you would drink quickly. You're almost forced to drink it slowly and mellow out.

Ever age one? I know it's somewhat blasphemous to age an IPA, but 120 min can withstand the hops being toned down a bit. Split a 5 year old one with a couple friends and it was a pretty unique taste.

Bought a 4 pack this past April. Had one right then and one a couple weeks back. Idk why but the one a couple weeks ago was super boozy tasting. Gonna age these other ones and see how they turn out.
