Rogue Dead Guy. Hands down my favorite beer (at the moment). A little pricey, but also higher ABV.

I never have been able to get a taste for Rogue. It has never really become popular around my area. However, Delirium Tremens is a very delicious pale ale. How can you not enjoy a beer that shares its name with the condition suffered from withdrawal.
I swear once you get into IPAs it's hard to find anything else that satisfies! Best beer I've had was Sierra Nevada Northern Hemisphere Harvest Wet Hop Ale (a mouthful!). It is a rare find though. Fullers ESB on tap is pretty damn good too.
My two favorites are fat tire and Rougue Dead Guy Ale.......
Another one I highly recommend, if you can find it.
Anything and everything 3Floyds. One of the only benefits to living in Indiana, I'm able to find it on tap.
Y'all should check this list out if you're beer lovers. It's a local hole-in-the-wall bar in Muncie, IN (where I go to school). It's been voted one of the best beer bars in America. Every beer listed is available. Needless to say I spend a lot of time there. Prices are reasonable as well.
I love 3 Floyds so much. We get a lot of it here in Chicago. Alpha King is my favorite but Robert the Bruce is great too. I need to visit the brewery.

Your team. All the time.
The bar I referenced gets Alpha King and Gumballhead on tap. Gumballhead is definitely my all-time favorite beer. Also a fan of their Dreadnought. Thinking about going to Dark Lord Day if I can find a ticket.
Haven't actually been by the Wrecking Bar yet (moved here about a year ago after graduating from UT), but I've been to the Porter Beer Bar a handful of times, which I'm pretty sure is pretty much across the street from the Wrecking Bar in Little Five Points. The Porter is probably my favorite place so far, but the Wrecking Bar has been on my to-do for a little bit, just haven't made it there yet. Will have to make it a priority next time I venture over there.
In honor of our beer thread, cheers to a sunny Friday afternoon in Knoxville!
I had this before the NC State game last year. I don't remember the specific name, but it was a German beer...
Got to sample nearly 40 different home brews yesterday at my first meeting with the Midstate Brew Crew, Had an awesome time, good group of guys.

Not sure how I've skipped over this thread for so long but I've been big on IPAs for about 6 or 7 years now. Pint night at Barley's in the old city is where it all started haha. However, I do love me a nice skol! Bud after cutting the grass in the summer.
I tried your beer yesterday and thought it was good. Didn't really know what to think when I saw a bacon beer, but had to try it. The three guys I was with and I enjoyed it.
Please tell me you were the guy with the black UT shirt and not the dude with the Bama shirt and the houndstooth cape. J/K, glad to hear you enjoyed it! I was the guy with the Power T hat, stay and talk some football next time!
I actually didn't see this post prior to the Thirsty Orange or I definitely would have stopped and chatted with you.
The four of us that went together are all big UT fans, so there was no Bama crap on us. All of us were dressed in regular clothes and I was sporting a Braves hat (which got a lot of comments).
This was the first time I had been to the fest and enjoyed it. Tried some really unique beers. Your bacon beer was good and I had never had anything like it. Also, had a beer called "Black Smoke". It was smoked blueberry or something, but it taste like a plate of smoked barbeque. It was one that was interesting to try, but wouldn't try it again. Was really interesting to see what all of the home brewers come up with because I had never had anything like a lot of the stuff that was over there.
That was probably the thing I enjoyed the most about it was how well represented the homebrewers were at the event. Don't get me wrong, I very much enjoyed having Wicked Weed, Calf Killer, Studio Brew, and the other regional professional brews, but the homebrew guys went above and beyond on Saturday.
I was also happy that we got a medal for one of the media outlet's pick, cannot remember which one at the moment, for our Chocolate Covered Cherry Stout. Although my favorite ones that we brought were a traditional German Rauchbier and a Double IPA, we got quite a bit of positive feedback on all of our beers, so overall it was a great day.
Happy Friday! Who's thirsty?
If you haven't tried a beer from the Stone Brewing Company, I recommend doing so. You can usually find their Pale Ale in most chain groceries. But if you have a liquor store nearby with a good beer selection (i.e. Busters in Memphis), Stone has a lot of high alcohol content varieties that are phenomenal. My favorites: Stone IPA; Stone Vertical (12-12-12). The latter is brewed with chili's and cinnamon. Delicious.
