I'm this very moment having a SN Celebration Ale, but ever since my visit to the Czech Republic, my true love has been Pilsner Urquell. I've yet to find a suitable, reliably available domestic alternative, but every time I find it on tap my face just lights right up...

Had a few good ones at our weekly tasting last night
DFH World Wide Stout
Keegan Ales Mothers Milk
Wagner Valley Sled Dog Dopplebock
Ommegang Tripel Perfection
Ommegang Hennepin

The DFH World Wide Stout and the Tripel Perfection were absolutly fantastic. The WWS had quite the kick.

Comparing to Pilsner Urquell, Live Oak Pils might be the closest American brewed pils.

Prima is my favorite Pils. Hands down best American IMO.

Fully agree on that. It's my favorite commercially available pils. Just that Prima Pils is hoppier than Pilsner Urquell (and probably less residual malt). Which is a good thing for some and others not so much.

There are some American versions on this list that might be worth sampling.

http://www.beerinfo.com/index.php/pa...anPilsner.html

For me, I'm not sure how well Summerfest & SA Noble Pils stack up against the original Urquell (especially on draft,) but you might find something you like here.

I hope it turns out to be a blessing that these guys decided not to open the pub back up. Maybe they'll get more beer into circulation.

Drinking Bells Two Hearted.

By the way, Heady Topper is really good stuff! Wish I could get it more often than trades.

In an IPA mood...

Caldera IPA
SKA Modus Hoperandi
BrewDog Hardcore IPA
LD Sneaky Pete


Nice to see others not be scared of cans. I love the fact I can take my favorite beers with me to the river, lake, hiking, etc.. and not worry about glass.

I had to give up craft beers to afford more cigars! couldn't afford both vice's. But occasionally I do have a N/A beer.

They had the Pilsner Urquell on tap at a bar down the street from me for a while. No one there drank it and it went on sale for 2.50 for a 20 oz. tap. I think I drank at least 2/3rds of that keg. Love that stuff.
