Down with the same drink!
So I say, down with the same drink! Every day is a new day and your dinner does not have to be the same ever again! There are more grapes than Merlots and there are more beers out there than Lagers.
Try any of these brands for quality beer drinking bliss. You can find these products in World Market, Whole Foods, Wegmans, Harris Teeter, Trader Joe's and maybe one day at a grocery store near you. Support your local and regional brews and experience something different.
Chimay Blue Label
Tröegs Dead Reckoning Porter
Oskar Blues: Dale's Pale Ale
Bell's Oberon Ale
Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA
The great thing about the bulk of these beers (The Chimay, Dead Reckoning and 120 Minute IPA) is that they can be cellered and consumed a year or two after purchase much like some wines and will receive very enhancing flavor notes similare to a sherry or port. The Oberon, an unfiltered wheat beer, is a fantastic summer option and the Dale's Pale Ale is the leader in debunking the myth that good beer can not come from a can or that a can will ruin the flavor of good beer.
So go out there and make some new friends and find some new favorites!
