Not even tasted it yet, but just got a bottle of this for later, and it's a favourite even without tasting...

Anyone recommend a decent beer in Boston, please ?

 

If there actually is one that is.

 

Thanks in advance.

I like a light beer and had a belter in California last year. Lightswitch I think it was called. Had a really nice Blonde beer in the Innis and Gunn boozer last weekend. Can't remember what it was called though cos I got nuggets on Red Stripe after it

If you're ever in Vienna, try the Ottakringer Gold Fassl. Never had a bad pint of that.

Quite happy to drink Carling in any UK pub unless they sell Wheat beer, Erdinger whilst not the best is about the easiest to find nowadays, even Stratties sell it. Prefer Franzizkaner or even Hoe but the best I've ever tasted was Hamster beer (Koranwolf) from Holland. Tesco Bathgate had it for a wee while and I bought 3 bottles every week for 4 weeks then it vanished which makes me think they shipped in a crate of 12 and it was only me buying it

Hamster wheat bier ...remember majestic used to sell this over ten years ago...loved it...great stuff...!!!

Samuel Adams Boston Lager.  Lightly hopped, amber coloured Kolsch style at around 5% abv. IMO, probably the best of the American 'craft' beers.

Quite liked the Samuel Adams Honey Porter, don't know if it's still on the market nowadays.

 

I have a bottle of Samuel Adams Triple Bock 1995 Vintage (yes I've had it since then and it's still unopened) it was about 17% when bottled back in 1995.

Did a Brewery Tour at Sam Adams a couple of years back. Some really tasty beers which are not as widely distributed as the Boston Lager. Tour is free, but book ahead. It's in South Boston area of Jamaica Plain/Forest Hills and is near the metro line. You can get a free shuttle trolley from the brewery to nearby Doyles pub, which is a good old fashioned bar to spend a few hours in, and then the metro back to the city centre.

I always maintained that the U.K. could not produce a decent lager, but we were bloody excellent at ales, until I stumbled across St Mungos lager in Glasgow on a weekend away with the wife, and I love it! 

 

My favourite lagers outside of that are Estrella and Tiger 

 

My favourite ales are Tanglefoot and Doombar

 

I also love a Guinness or ten  :toilet:

St. Mungo's is great stuff, particularly if you enjoy a tasty German lager. If you haven't before, give Three Hop by Caledonian Brewery a try: in my opinion it's almost as good as St. Mungo's.

Paolozzi from the Edinburgh Beer Factory is pretty good as well.

Mostly lagers i drink .

 

Dont mind a bit of innes and gunn original or rum casked. They done this Seasonal flavour one year it was Canadian oak aged (something like that) was absolutely amazing.

 

If you have ever been to Habaneros in Musselburgh they sell this fantastic Mexican lager called Pacifico, highly recommend if you like a smooth lager. They sell it in Tesco Musselburgh now as well.

Had a couple of pints of this last week, very impressed. There was a groupon deal to visit the beer factory a while back, which I never took up, wish I had.

Just opened a bottle of this, can't say I'm that impressed thus far, light golden colour, thin white head, really quite mild taste.

Ghost town is fantastic. Really well malted, not too heavy but a good kick.

 

If anyone can get there paws on an Alechemy Bring Out The Imp, dive on it. Majestic stuff.

 

Black Metal beers rock.

At home, it's mostly pale ales and IPAs for me, and these two from Rathmullan, County Donegal are top of my list:

And here we are, nearly three months later, and I just brought home a bottle of each of the above to sip on tonight.

I had a bottle of Edinburgh Beer Factory Bunk last night. Not usually a fan of brown ale but it was top notch. Did the brewery tour a few weeks ago at Sighthill and their unfiltered lager is also really good.

This is brewed just up the road from me. I've tried the Porter and def NOT a fan. Their other stuff is good, especially their lager.

 

I went to see TNS v QOTS last week and had a couple of beers - Off The Rails - beautiful stuff.
