Beers galore!

Standard

S and I have always lamented in Chile about the small amount of microbrewery beers that are available and how few places carry them. Although I really like some of the microbreweries around, for example Kuntsmann (the big one) or Del Puerto and Die-something-or-other (sold at Patagonia), they are hard to find and don’t have the array of flavors and types as in the states. Therefore, we have been binging on beer since we got here. Here are those I can think of:

  1. Lakefront Brewery in WI’s Cattail ale
  2. Lakefront Brewery in WI’s Cream City, a pale ale
  3. Lakefront Brewery in WI’s Organic ESB, which was really good
  4. Lakefront Brewery in WI’s Riverwest Stein Beer, a lager
  5. Lakefront Brewery in WI’s Eastside Dark, a lager we didn’t really care for
  6. Lakefront Brewery in WI’s Klisch, a pilsner
  7. Lakefront Brewery in WI’s Cherry Lager, one of their seasonal beers which is quite tasty and a bit tart
  8. Lakefront Brewery in WI’s White Beer, another seasonal brew
  9. Lakefront Brewery in WI’s Pumpkin Lager, another season that is wonderful in its delicate spiciness
  10. Sprecher’s Black Bavarian which I love
  11. Sprecher’s Hefe weiss, which we both loved!
  12. Sprecher’s Brown Pub Ale, which was tasty!
  13. Sprecher’s Amber ale
  14. Sprecher’s Mai Bock.
  15. Sprecher’s Shakparo, which is supposedly west african in nature
  16. Sprecher’s Octoberfest, which we thought was boring!
  17. Sprecher’s Abbey Triple, which S said was possibly the best beer he had ever tried
  18. Sprecher’s IPA2, which we didn’t care for
  19. Sprecher’s Piper’s Scotch Ale, which was way up there with Sprecher’s Abbey Triple
  20. Sprecher’s Mamma Mia’s Pizza beer which is brewed with real oregano, basil, tomatoes and garlic.  It actually smells like a pizza which for a beer is wierd!
  21. Leinenkugel in WI’s Berry weiss, which was a bit too sweet
  22. Leinenkugel in WI’s Honey weiss, which we didn’t really like
  23. Leinenkugel in WI’s Sunset wheat, which we loved
