    Ok, label me a snob but keep all those fruity ass flavors out of my beer. Beer should be flavored with varying amounts of hops and barley and brewing techniques.

    Shove all the chocolate porters and raspberry, lime, and cherry bullshit up your ass. I hate it.

    I don't disagree and wouldn't consider it snobbish.

    I personally don't care for them, but so long as they aren't pushing the beer I like out of the cooler I don't care.

    And if you are a person who likes those kinds of beer....I hope your parents were supportive when you came out.

    flavored beers are gross.

    i don't criticize anybody for not drinking certain drinks, particularly when it comes to wine.

    but if you don't like stouts, i question your general virility.

    I assume you're talking about the shitty stuff like Blue Moon and Shock Top, right? There are world class beers with adjuncts like cocoa nibs, cinnamon, fruit, etc, not to mention some of the oldest styles of Belgian beer are fruited Lambic and they're delicious.

    Regardless of the style, shitty beer sucks.

    those sound truly grotesque

    any specific brands you recommend? the fruit ones sound particularly frightening, but i'd be willing to at least try cocoa or cinnamon.

    You're out on the peninsula, right? If you have a good liquor store out there that also carries some good craft beer, see if they have anything from Fremont Brewing. Bourbon Abominable (B-Bomb) is their barrel aged winter ale. It's a big beer but among the best barrel aged beers in the country IMO. Anyway, this year they released a Coffee Cinnamon version of it and it's absolutely delicious. They run about $17 a bottle for a 22oz so pricey for the everyday beer, especially if it's just something you're looking to try. Looks like this:

    The cinnamon and coffee adjuncts really shine in those bigger dark beers where they have the bitter roasted barley flavors to blend with.

    As far as more affordable everyday drinkers, Ballast Point has Grapefruit Sculpin out now and it's delicious. It's a nice fruity IPA (fruity hop character I mean) with grapefruit added. Citrus always works well with a hoppy beer.

    Ninkasi brews Oatis, their oatmeal stout which is pretty solid. They also do a Vanilla version that I like better than the base beer. I think it's a seasonal beer in 22oz bottles. Should run about $6

    Let me know if you get to try anything like these and what you think.

    Lived on the Peninsula from 90-97, but am in central WA now.

    It's wine country up here, and I haven't had much beer outside of a stout every now and then for the past 5 years.

    That B-Bomb looks good, and I don't mind spending some $$$ on a treat like that. I'll look around for it and let you know.

    Sam Adams Cherry Wheat is a great beer.

    Call me a pussy if you want but that is a damn fine beer.

    Also, maybe I just never thought of a chocolate stout as being a flavored beer. When I do pick up beer, I try to get Rogue Double Chocolate Stout....is that really considered a flavored beer?

    If you want to be technical about it, yes, anything other than water, yeast, hops, and malted barley is an adjunct, most of which would be for flavoring.

    1. Sounds like you're more of a German Beer aficionado, where the ingredients are very limited when they brew Beer. I think it is limited to only 4 maximum ingredients to be called Beer.

    2. Doesn't sound like you're a fan of Sour beer. Good, more for me.

    Then I guess I do like flavored beers.

    Going to search for some of that B Bomb and Vanilla Oatis for drinking next weekend.

    Just found a chocolate stout from Shiner here in Texas called "Birthday Beer" that is very nice. Would love to try that Fremont B-Bomb but doubt I can find it anywhere around here

    I'll bet it's good. I like Shiner Bock and would definitely that stout if it were available up here.
