Let them rest for a few weeks after you buy them and chill them well before drinking. Also be very gentle when handling the bottles just before consumption. Avoid shaking them as much as possible. Also the shape of the glass and the pouring will have an effect. Try to choose a weizen glass with a wi...

I am originally from Europe and I can tell you I have never seen food or beer without an expiry date stated on the package, at least in the western countries (maybe sugar didn't have it). They don't call it "best before" in Europe as far as I remember but rather "expiry date". I ...

I suggest you don't consume the Westmalle right away. You're right, this batch has got the larger flakes of yeast than usual. I wasn't able to decant it properly so I'm going to let it settle for a few weeks/months. Personally I don't mind powdery yeast in my beer but flakes turn me off. I just open...

Totally agree Perry. I've been saying the same for a while. Guinness is not what it used to be.

Just opened a 2004. Seems to be relatively well balanced. In fact I enjoyed it a lot. Maybe aging does help.

The reason I never buy Tankhouse ( anywhere else other than their brewpub) is because the production date doesn't seem to be printed on the bottle/label. I don't like to take chances when it comes down to local products that sell relatively slow in comparison with some imports... which, BTW, all hav...

Consumer's beverages

I've dropped by their location in Williamsville (Transit rd.) close to Buffalo (they moved in a new bulding). I was really impressed by their selection of american most at prices lower than Premier. Also lots of Belgians ( Rochefort, Chimay, Westmalle...) at resonable prices - can't remember all of ...

I'd go for Stone Brewing but either of Hair of the Dog, Bear Republic, Anderson Valley sounds good too.
