I am also a big fan of Mirror Pond, but Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is my fav! :TONGUE
Mac and Jacks will do!
I would have to make a vote for fish tale brewery in olympia. Couldn't decide on a particular brew from them, but they are all excellent. The wild salmon pale ale has part of the profits going to salmon restoration efforts, as well as being an excellent refresher on hot summer days. They have even sponsored a local river cleanup project and provided us with plenty of free brew.
An excellent brewery, supporting a good cause.
I knew you guys were a bunch of yuppies at heart (fat tire, mac&jack's). Those are all fine when you are sitting around waxing the Beamer...
But nothing beats a warm Schmidt that has been in your backpack all day (makes it nice and frothy). If you get the cans with the bass or the trout artwork you are practically guaranteed to catch fish. :THUMBSUP
Not to mention the fact that the cans are camoflaged and won't reflect sunlight to spook your fish. Hahahahahahahah
Come on, who's with me on the animal beer?
You bring Mac and Jacks and your welcome on my boat any time. It is not easy to come by in the Olympia area.
My last experience with a Mac and Jacks was at Safeco feild where I had to cough up $6 for a cup. I had to borrow a buck 50 from a friend even. When they gave me the cup, I swear there was not even eight ounces in there. I was dissapointed and felt jipped. But then I took a small sip (you don't chug beer at 75 cents an ounce). This was one of those defining beer moments, where you are left speachless. I have talked about that beer for a couple months now, with very little in the way of prodding to coax it out of me. Even as I type this now, I can't find the words to express haw good that cup was. I'm at work, I'm salivating and I just need to stop thinking about it. All I can say is, If I had another 6 bucks in my pocket, I would have easily given it up for another 7 and 2/3 ounces.
sorry ,im gonna have to go across the border here and say kokanee ,good stuff eh?? :THUMBSUP
There's a definite seasonal component to this. Hot summer days call for a light beer, such as mirror pond :YUM , or bud if I'm pinching pennies. Cold autumn and winter days scream for two of my favorite beers, Jubelale :YUM (Deschutes) and Wassail :YUM (Full sail). And a beer I love to drink anytime....Anderson Valley IPA. Good 'n hoppy! :THUMBSUP
While I HAVE waxed a bimmer while sipping my micro brew, I also pack a few bottles (that's right, bottles) in to the alpine lakes. Nothing like humping in a tube 9 miles up some mountain and enjoying good micro. Has created a few beer moments, but I won't go into any more of those.
FYI: I always pack the empty bottles back out, as well as plenty of cans that others often leave behind.
I am a hick at heart! I just happen to like Mac & Jacks after fishing but during; the silver bullet! You can take the boy out of CWU; but can't take the CWU out of the boy!
Flip Down Fly Boy! :BIGSMILE
I would have to go with coors light, but Oly stubbies do fit quite well on the ole' southfork=)
PS...On those cold mornings though there is nothing like a quick shot of Rumplemintz to sooth the throat=)
Mac and Jacks, miror pond, fat tire or a steelhead beer (after landing a steelie). BTW, I can't find it anymore, do you know where I can get a pack of steelhead beer???
excellent topic :THUMBSUP
Regardless of the fact I may be considered yuppie-ish, there is no ale finer than Fort Collins finest, Fat Tire.
I like Warsteiner.
Here's a quick test to see if you are drinking a real beer or not.
Pour your beer into a glass and hold it up to the light. If you can see through it - it ain't real beer.
Lovely day for a Guinness.
For in the field beer.....Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. On tap beer- Mac and Jacks, Wyndemere Hef, Mirror pond, Black Butte, Moose Drool, and Rosyln Brookside Amber.
Just say no to old lady beer....aka LIGHT beer... My brother says I'm a spoiled beer nazi for never having to experience cheap beer...I just say I'm privilaged to know and appreciate the difference. :TONGUE
But, if someone else is buying...I don't complain much.
