New Hermanator is real good.

Is there a Vancouver in Taiwan?! I had no idea!!

Nothing sums up my life's achievements like my stuffed corpse, suplexing a cougar.

Finished off a growler of Bridge's black IPA, pretty nice. It's like a nut brown ale meets porter meets IPA. Agreed on Hermannator - I wanted to keep a couple around for a while but that might not end up happening. No loss there.

I grabbed a good whack of Woolly Buggers but haven't cracked one yet, I hear it's delicious fresh this year. ABYSS SOON. Too bad it's gonna be hella expensive.

Longwood Extra Ale - gave me a headache
Steampunk Dunkel - I like this
The Big One IPA - High alcohol low cost, interesting taste

Yes, it is nice. The tastiest Ice Wiesse Bock I have found is this one.

No, not a micro craft beer, but it is about $5-7 a bottle and at 12%abv, it's good value.

Well as a rookie, i have never even heard of one of these ( or this style of beer). I will have to check it out.

Been enjoying the Pumpkin beers lately, the Pumpkineater from Howe Sound brewing is damn tasty, so is the offering from the Nelson Brewing Company.

Somehow I am finding myself not drinking much beer lately; something must be wrong :S

I concur. Huge and tasty. Great winter warmer. Have to pick some up…

I cracked open one of my two Belle Royales last night, and both my wife and I really enjoyed it. Much more than I expected, actually, being new to the sour genre. She was bummed to find out that it was a limited release.

Any recommendations for readily available cherry, or similar, sours?

Not cherry, but grab an armload of New Belgium Le Terroir while it's still on shelves. It's amazing and very palatable for non-sour beer drinkers. It has a great sour base with a healthy dose of citrus hops that are not at all bitter.

I bought 6 and am contemplating more.

Again, not cherry, but there are a bunch of Oude Geuze that are reasonably priced and not too intense.

Storm Flanders Red is my local 'go to' but it's an imperial so it's a bit extreme.
