* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Favorite Beer?
« on: December 29, 2012, 10:29:38 pm »
I always like trying new beer, so I thought I would ask everyone what their favorite beers are. Mine is Shiner Bock or Shiner Kosmos from Spoetzl Brewery here in Texas.

You seem to like the malty end of the spectrum.  I'm a bit of a Left-Coast hophead and a Big Beer fan.  I'm also a massive beer geek for a couple and a half decades, so it's really tough to play favorites.

That said, right now I'm lovin' session IPAs, which are finding a foothold here in the PNW.  My current fave is Lagunitas' Daytime.  In the realm of big beers, I love various barleywines and imperial stouts/porters.  I just had this one on tap.  It was magically delicious.  Unfortunately, most of my other faves are local and tap-only.

I tend to go towards German or Czech style beers. I like beer with a lot of flavor and fulfilling. I guess growing up in Texas where there's lots of German and Czech immigrants that's probably why.

I do have a fondness for Black Butte Porter!  I used to ride my bike past where it's brewed near every day, growing up, when it was just our local small-town beer.
If you like imperial stouts, have you tried North Coast's Old Rasputin?  I have a passing fondness for it.  And, I think from the same brewers in more of an abbey ale bent--I do love a nice brown abbey ale--Brother Thelonious is quite nice.

There's a brewery in Raleigh (about 2 1/2 hours from me) called Natty Greene's that has some interesting stuff, but I'm an IPA girl, and I haven't tried theirs yet. The stuff in my fridge right now is the IPA from Highland Brewing Company in Asheville.  J's a cider guy more than beer, so I've also got a couple of bottles of Angry Orchard in there.

I so very Old Raspy.  I just had a burbon-barrel aged version that I adored.  I'm not a big fan of Belgians because of the intense estery yeast profile.  Brother Thelonious was decent, but again not a style I enjoy much.

Does anyone care for wheat beer? Shiner Hefeweizen is a wheat beer I like to drink from time to time.

I tend to consider wheat beer "summer" or starter beers.  But if you like gentle phenolic notes (without being overwhelming, like a lot of Belgians), you'll really enjoy Weizens.

Raspy's good.  The only Belgian brew I've tried is Duvel.  Pretty good, though a tad sweet at the finish, but overall not something I'd enjoy often.

The last couple of years I've been a rabid fan of IPAs.  Sierra Nevada's 'Torpedo' is great, but the one out of Stone Brewery in the San Diego area is awesome.  Matter of fact I enjoy just about the entire Stone line, most especially Arrogant Bastard Ale.

I prefer nicer, crisp, clean pilsners, lagers, and pale ales.  For some reason, I don't enjoy the darker beers any more.  I used to love Guiness.  *shrug*

My very favorite is called Blonde Bombshell.  Unfortunately, it's made by a local microbrewery and only available on tap in their restaurant.  Sigh.

I enjoy trying craft beers, but don't have a favorite at the moment.

My go-to, (usually) easily available stand-by is Stella Artois, although I like Moretti, too, when I can find it.  I also have to admit to a fondness for Corona, as pedestrian as that might be.  ;)

Lagunitas had an imperial stout out last year, but this year I can't seem to find it. Imperial stouts are my all-around favorite.

Wheat beer is my favourite beer style. I love hefeweizen, and Schlafly makes a great one (also at their restaurant in St Louis they batter their cod using it--yummy!).

Hoegaarden--Belgian White Beer--was the beer that spurred my love of wheat beers. I just love unfiltered beers. The cloudier, the better! I hear those Budweiser commercials about how their new beer is 'triple-filtered' and it just sounds terrible.

I love Shock Top and Blue Moon--both wheat beers flavoured with citrus and coriander. Shock Top has a new beer that has a hint of a raspberry flavour added to it. It's fantastic!

Speaking of fruit, I do love a good fruit lambic. Again another Belgian beer. I do not like lambic beer without the addition of the fruit, but with the fruit it is truly scrumptious. I enjoy the kriek (cherry), framboise (raspberry) and the pomme (apple). Lindemans have a great variety of these beers. I first tried them when in Belgium and am very happy that they can be found over here too.

My husband is the same. His favourite pilsner is a Spanish one called Estrella Damm that is from Barcelona (we were there earlier this year--beer is cheaper than soda so we had a beer with every single meal of the day). There is also a pilsner we sampled when down in the south of Spain called Cruzcampo, and it's nice too.

Ooooo!  I'll look for those.  Thanks!

A brand new liquor store just opened within walking distance of my house, and it's HUGE.  I'm looking forward to working my way through their beer section.

Within walking distance? Nice ;)

We live out in the middle of nowhere and the closest town is very small. Therefore whenever we're in St Louis (about six times a year usually) we stock up on beer. Our car is full of clinking the entire journey home.
