Re: Beer Cruising

Another vote for San Diego. Stone Brewery brews a long list of finely crafted beers and ales. I tried to get my yacht club to put Arrogant Bastard Ale on tap, not only because its one of my favorites but I also thought it would fit a lot of personalities!

Re: Beer Cruising

Get 'em to put Double Bastard Ale on tap - for the skipper and the crew... Definitely meshes with sailors.

But even Arrogant Bastard at 7.2% is pretty heavy duty stuff - on tap It'd be tough to get back on the barstool after 3-4 of em.

I was told the English drink their beer warm because of their bad refrigeration. Click image for larger version

Re: Beer Cruising

If you are close to the PNW Canadian border, try the Granville Island Winter Ale.
It's not bad.
Mind you, I have been told I put the 'sewer' in 'connoisseur'.

Re: Beer Cruising

Dunedin, Florida. Anchor just outside or get a very reasonably priced transient slip.

Multiple micro-breweries with walking/stumbling distance.

Probably the nicest stop on the west coast of Florida. The has station on the corner has an unbelievable selection just like the thread with pictures.

Re: Beer Cruising

Drinking beer is like this..... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when a herd is hunted, it the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first.

This natural selection is good as a whole, because the health and speed of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members.

In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now as we know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine.

And that, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

It's more to do with the terrible climate - drinking cold lager in winter is just miserable. Doesn't mean we have heated beers though - they're at cellar temperature not nearly frozen.

So far as locations go, they all seem to be "near me" - I'd have said Belgium or Bavaria personally, but they aren't exactly cruising destinations!

Re: Beer Cruising

I have to vote for my own local brewer, who produces some of the best beer I've ever tasted. So let me recap, good beer, good fishing, good scenery, good people, good harbor, good soon to be legal weed. Remind me again why I want to sail south. If you get a chance come on by.

Our Brews, Homer Brewing Company

As if that wasn't enough, the light switches are upside down too.

Re: Beer Cruising

Slightly off topic but my wife and I are seriously considering altering our plans to include participating in the Single Malt Rally to be held in Scotland in July. We won't be able to make it this year but it sounds like something I'd hate to miss!

Malts Cruise

Fair winds and calm seas.

Re: Beer Cruising

Another for the PNW but I have only tasted the Canadian side. Victoria B.C seems to have a infection of micro-brewers and i personally have never tasted anything as wonderful as the Pilsner from Hoyne brewing, draft of course. Otherwise i would say Germany with its Erdinger and other wheat beers that i am partial to. Like everything else, if you want something really good you'll have to pay but i don't mind. My beer snobbery stops me from becoming a alcoholic
