I'm a little surprised that no one has mentioned Delirium Tremins yet. It's a Belgian style beer that's apparently one of the most popular in the world. Not one of my favorites though.
As for Bell's, their stuff is fantastic. They were the fastest growing beer brewery in Chicago about 3 or 4 years back before they ran into problems with distributors (I hear the owners a strange guy). They started selling under the name "Kalamazoo" before they got the contracts cleared up. But, yeah, they are great.
Has anyone tried He-Brew? I'm interested in getting some opinions about it.
Also, anyone know of Kronenbourg? It was one of my favorite beers when I was visiting Europe, but I can't find it at all over here. Sad Face.
Yeah, Delirium is great. I like pretty much anything from Unibroue. Someone else mentioned Maudite which is excellet as well as Le Fin Du Monde and Terrible (super ass-kicking strong Belgian-style ale).
My local beer store has pretty much all of the He'Brew varieties but I have never tried them. I'll have to give them a go sometime.
Speaking of that beer store, if anyone lives in the Hampton Roads area in VA and wants to go somewhere with a great beer selection, check out Grape and Gourmet on VA Beach Blvd. It is a wine store, but Kevin, one of the owners, is a beer nut and now has over 500 beers in stock. Seriously, 500.
Heh, I just found their list of microbrews which was last updated in October. http://www.grapeandg.../Microbrews.htm
Oh, and Zen, looks like they have Kronenbourg
