Beer in Quarantine

Prospect in Other

Quarantine without beer just doesn't make sense. It just doesn't. Which beer do you guys/gals think is best for a time like this?

Founders All Day IPA is a pretty good price/performance, IMO.

All Day IPA is good. Bell's Two Hearted is my favorite IPA and go-to but when I can't afford to get obliterated by it's 7% ABV, All Day IPA is usually what I'll have

Love Guinness - if you ever want to try another great stout that comes, in my opinion, try Left Handed Brewery's Milk Stout

I haven't ever found a beer I could tolerate. I do have two bottles of Balvenie (Rare Cask and Caribbean Cask) that I have been depleting.

Open to suggestions for beer. I've tried the full range, light all the way to obscure IPAs.

I used to be in the same boat - it's an acquired taste. The more you drink the more you'll learn to differentiate/discover what you like.

Mar 31, 2020

Do you fancy any other beverages?

Mar 31, 2020

Absolutely. Scotch, tequila, and rum. Rum being my personal favorite. I haven't found any "normal" hard liquor I don't enjoy. I'm sure there's some odd flavored hot Cheetos vodka that would make me vomit, but outside of that I like just about all of them.

No but I got a friend from there that says that's all that everyone drinks there. In college my friends and I drank Busch lattes when we pooled all our money for beer for the weekend and it was the cheapest, until we had enough to buy kegs.

How much beer has everyone been drinking during quarantine/WFH? More than usual?

    • 2
Mar 31, 2020

Less than usual on weekends, more than usual on weekdays. Trying out some new brews to branch out from the usual suspects (coors, bud light, high life, etc).

    • 2
Mar 31, 2020

Agreed - actually drinking less now than normal during weekdays. Not going out with coworkers, dates, etc, has contributed. First week of WFH I did drink more than normal (think this was more celebration of not having a long commute) but have dropped consumption over the past few weeks as quarantine has set in.

Massachusetts based. Usually would do Fiddlehead IPA after work at South Station which is based out of Vermont but can't get it at home so have been doing Wally IPA (Wachusett Brewing, MA) and Pulp Daddy New England IPA (Greater Good, MA) . As we move into warmer weather and my back porch opens up I will move to some mixed drinks. Mostly Titos, Cran, splash of OJ and any fruit/berry mix And for a Saturday of pure day drinking: Bud Light

You are right - quarantine without beer would be fucked.

Stella is the go to, but when I'm feeling cheap gotta go with Budweiser - The King of Beer. Drinking a tallboy from a frozen glass as we speak.

As much as I'm tempted to, I avoid it all day until 1030-11pm hits. Nothing better than cracking open a much deserved cold one, Something to look forward to amongst all this bs.

A friend brought Duvels from Belgium a while back and I still have some to enjoy during quarantine. Upside of Duvel is that they taste great, downside is that I'm not always in the mood to get fucking hammered when I have a beer at home but Duvel doesn't really give me much choice.

Belgium has exceptional regional beers, too. Even better than German beer, in many instances.

Apr 1, 2020

I'm not aware of many non-commercial lighter Belgian beers. Stella is fine but nothing special. On the other end of the spectrum you have Duvel, Chouffe and Chimay which are excellent but are heavy hitters (ABV 8%+ for all of them). Know any lesser "commercial" good Belgian beers between 4-6% ABV?

Sierra Nevada Hazy Little Thing IPA. Those discounted 12-packs are a blessing.

Edit: Brewdog came up with a hazy IPA as well, not bad but on the expensive side

Apr 1, 2020

Miller Lite is my go to. However if I'm feeling an IPA, Tropicalia is unbeatable. Unfortunately it's tough to find outside of Georgia.

Elysian Space dust which is an I.P.A or Goose Island which is also an I.P.A too. The best I.P.A that I have heard of is Heady Topper which was ranked #1 on beer advocate. I wish i could get my hands on some of that stuff but it so rare but Dogfish head I.P.A will do. Yes, I do like hoppy I.P.A if you haven't noticed.

"It's okay, I'll see you on the other side"

Apr 2, 2020

Big fan of Dogfish's 90min IPA

Apr 6, 2020

Hate to burst you bubble but as someone who has had heady topper--I can say that its good but there are dozens of beers our there on its level. I think it is considered the best because it is so difficult to get your hands on. Definitely worth a try if you're up in Vermont, but it isn't life changing in my opinion.

If you're in NY, a fun friends trip on a long weekend (or solo tbh) would be to do a beer drive up thru western mass and vermont, maybe bounce over to portland. Just load tf up and come home with a great stock.

Definety agree with most of you on here, especially the New England folk. Any light beer is fun to put down, but its also nice to sip on a couple IPAs and catch an easy buzz. Favorite IPA for me for the past year or so has Been Jai Alai from Cigar City Brewing. A 6 pack at 7.5% for ~$12 is a great deal too.

I actually had a virtual beer pong tournament with a bunch of my friends through google hangouts on Saturday and it was a blast. Had some Bud Tallboys for that and it hit the spot

Apr 2, 2020

Jai Alai did not live up to the hype for me. Decent IPA, but not really my style for some reason

Apr 1, 2020

If you live in the northeast and like IPAs, try little sip of sunshine from lawson's liquids... one of my favorites, not too heavy and with 8% abv it'll get you there

Answer 2: snakebites. It's the original FourLoko. 50/50 mix a beer (usually a Guiness) with cider. I find dark beers too bitter and apple cider too sweet but mix the two and you get a real smooth and refreshing beverage. Oh, and with two alcohols have the added benefit of getting you f*ed up faster.

Apr 1, 2020

Answer 3: gin + soda (not a beer obviously, and yes, soda not tonic). Gin's real nice and smooth, and a soda doesn't interfere with the taste, plus both gin and soda are low carb. Avoid tonic water if you're trying to keep it low carb.

Apr 4, 2020

Can recommend this one too. Otherwise you could opt for a low carb tonic water to strike some middle ground. Currently lounging around with one of these ones at home.

There is also the option to go for vodka and soda, if you are into that sort of thing!
