Announcing: Beer Style Wars

2 Mar

I hinted at this in the last post before getting my tonsils hacked out, so here’s the rest of the scoop:

A little while back I read a great post on Billy Brew about improving your tasting palate. The first suggestion was to put styles head to head and compare them. Well, that’s pretty much exactly what I’m going to do. Once a week I’ll be doing Beer Style Wars. I have a nifty little heart-shaped box of the styles, and one will be randomly selected each Monday with the beer showdown happening on Friday. Why the lapse in time? That’s where you come in! I’ll announce the style, then you, my faithful readers will throw your favorites at me. The three with the most votes will enter the arena and be subject to my nose and taste buds.

Lets get started! This week’s style is:

Stout!

Ready? GO!

    Most of my favorite stouts are imperial or barrel-aged, but one of my favorite “regular” stouts is Firestone Walker Velvet Merlin. It’s a fall seasonal I think so it might be tough to find right now.

      Right on! Thanks! That’s two votes for Velvet Merlin. I’ll see if I can scrounge some up. I’ll look forward to your input when I draw Imperial Stout.

    I just love me some stouts. My three favorites are Iron Fist Velvet Glove, Green Flash Double Stout and Port’s Santas Little Helper. Not necessarily in that order.
