My most recent beer was a Scofflaw Double Basement IPA:



Delicious, and 10.5% ABV.

Scofflaw Brewing Company has some good beer.  Basement IPA is good at 7.5% ABV.  They also have a version called POG Basement (POG stands for passionfruit, orange, and guava) that is mighty tasty.

You may notice by reading my posts that I live in the Atlanta, GA area.  There are a lot of great breweries here.

Sounds great. Yeah I like this age of independent breweries.  :P

I've been drinking Samuel Adam's Boston, And a few others made by Samuel Adam's. I used to drink lighter, more watered down beers. I look back now and I get the shivers. So glad I tried something different.

Beer must be an acquired taste, when I tried a pomegranate flavored beer I didn't care for it, though it probably didn't help that the beer was room temperature instead of cold.

Yeah, that definitely wouldn't help. I can't think of any beer that tastes nice at room temperature.

Was that the only time you tried beer?

Start with a chilled Lager, ideally from Germany or the Czech Republic.

An argument can be made that pomegrenade is an aquired taste  (laugh)

Found this fancy little trio in a local supermarket.

Tasty stuff. Pretty strong for beer (around 7.5 revolutions), but man. Dark and tasty. I glued a cog to my glass to drink in style.

It was indeed the only time I ever had beer.

Oh wow, well yes I guess luke warm pomegranate beer would turn someone off for good. Reminds me of the time I had a luke warm Spitfire ale. Horrible. Absolutely horrible. Undrinkable. (When cold a very nice beer!)

If you're willing to give it another go, follow Khris' advice. An idea might be to get yourself a well known lager (something pop culture has given a thumbs up might be the best introduction as not too complicated for the taste buds - Amstel, Heineken, Foster's, etc) and make sure you serve it cold this time!  :P

Interesting cans! I'm glad the beer turned out OK. Once in a while, I'll pick up a handful of beers simply for their unique marketing approaches, but it's really a crap shoot whether they are going to taste nice. For example, there's this Canadian brewer called Flying Monkeys (http://www.flyingmonkeys.ca/). Really elaborate cans, but the few times I tried them have been disappointing. This one is sort of a flat, drab, mildly fruity offering (not recommended):

I've really been enjoying this Aussie offering lately. Brewed in bottle, so they've got a natural cloud and bit of sediment. Really classic flavour and very nice colouring:

Been growing tired of the Orpheus Transmigration I talked about earlier.

Lately, I've been drinking Wicked Weed's Pernicious IPA.  Yum.

Not as strong, but much tastier, and it has a gorgeous label style:
