55 Beers for Manly MenJanuary 16th, 2009 by Alex
I know that usually tFS advocates the power of herbal relaxation over beverage-powered relaxation, but don’t let that trick you into thinking we’re anti-alcohol. In fact, we’re quite the beer enthusiasts.
If you like Bud Lime or Coors Light, good for you, but don’t bring any of that over to our office parties. Instead, take a cue from this badass list of 55 strong American brews put together by MyBadPad.
You don’t need to be stuck with Miller 64 or whatever the club crowd is drinking. American micro-brewers have been steadily been upping the ante when it comes to ABV (alcohol by volume) and this list is 85% home grown.
How does a beer get on their list? Simple, contain 10% ABV or more. The list starts off with Bell’s HopSlam Ale @ 10% even and maxes out with Sam Adams Triple Bock @ 17.5% (awesome).
I’ve had quite a few from this list, with my personal favorites being Rogue’s Imperial Stout or Stone Brewery’s Double Bastard Ale. Stone Brewery is top notch, located in San Diego, I suggest you take a trip down to their brewery / restaurant if you ever get the chance, it’s amazing.
Anyway, before I go off on a beer tangent, go check out MyBadPad’s list and let us know if you’ve ever had any of these beers, and which is your favorite. You might even want to pick up some of these bad boys for the NFC/AFC Championship games this Sunday.
