That looks delicious. I wonder if I'd be able to find it at Total Wine, out here on the West Coast.


It is terrible. Was talking about it earlier this week at a local beer store. Owner told me he tried it and dumped most of it down the sink! I disliked it, but still drank it. I expected more from these 2 brewers.

Not the best choice I guess but I'm getting wasted.


Teachers is ok for a cheap blend.

The reason is the high percentage of Ardmore malt, which is much higher than in most lower shelf blends. However, in recent years the quality of Teacher's seems to have gone down somewhat and turned the whisky hotter and more spirity, not sure if it's the grain or the malt at fault. In all honesty, in this category I'd probably rather go for Ballantine's instead these days. Not that it's better but rather unchanged, easy-driking and, at least over here, cheaper.

If Teacher's was cheaper it could be a regular but when the price is practically identical with these (for example), there's little point in wasting your money:




Or, why not even indeed go directly to the Teacher's source with one of the cheapest single malts available:

You're spot on. It was a gift, when it comes to cheap blends I usually go for Ballantines, Glen Grant or Famous Grouse. If I have some spare money, I go for Talisker, sometimes Glenmorangie. Ardbeg is a little fishy for my taste. Might try Laphroaig in the future. I'll definitely try the Ardmore!

In Australia, Teachers is around $32-$34. Same pricepoint really as Ballantines, Grouse and J&B (which range within $5). Ardmore, Bowmore and Old Pulteney are all in excess of double the price and range between $69 and $75. So, for us down here, it's a decent cheap blend (JW Black is probably my favourite cheap blend though it's not so cheap, around $42-$45). Only Ballantines I've ever had is the 17 year old, which is nice and due to a bad hang over from J&B, I avoid it.

For good price-point blends, we usually opt for White Horse. It uses Lagavulin, Talisker and Caol Ila in the blend and is a really creditable drink for the price. We used to be able to find it for about $20US for 1.75L. Yes, I know that sounds like a disaster in the making, but it was really underpriced.

Never had WH as we don't get it here but always understood it was in the sturdier side of blends as the list of malt components will attest.

On topic, a nice & quiet evening at home with Bowmore Darkest (frankly, decent but meh) and Goose Island IPA (brilliant, as always).

This if you can get it:

Also can't go wrong with about any Pils you'd pick up or Gaffel Kolsch.



I will have to try that, I have seen 6 packs where I normally buy stuff and other Anderson Valley beers I've had have been good.

They have this on tap where I work :

Most summer ales are wheaty/fruity/light. This is actually fairly hoppy but still drinkable and refreshing. For someone who's into IPAs, I'd recommend it. It's by far the best summer-labeled beer I've had.


I've had some of those, enjoyed it. Drinking Bell's Two Hearted Ale (one of my goto beers when buying cases) and listening to tapes tonight.

The people at Victory are my huckleberries. They make lagers I like, and that's saying something. Plus everyone I have met there has been a stand-up individual, and that's rare, even in the independent brewery world.

Tonight I drank Founders Devil Dancer (shitty day at work, so why not kill the pain with a 12% tripleIPA), followed by Lagunitas IPA, followed by Victory Prima Pils. A friend was doing a panel/book signing, so I wanted to be at least moderately sober for that. Didn't want to show up wasted and frighten any unaccustomed fans. Laughing

Tried all of these for the first time. Would drink all of them again (except for Satan, only the name is cool), especially the Westmalle!

Victory is definitely a top notch brewery. Storm King is an underrated stoudt, I can drink that stuff like water.

Really sucks that we don't get Punk IPA in Finland anymore. As it is, I only have access to their 5am Saint red ale which is great as well and one I tend to stock up on regularly but obviously quite different.

Couple of very popular German beers there. Have you just got to drinking age or just not really had any interest in beer up until now? Just curious.

Can't say I've been down the road as much I'd like to.
Also can't say those are that easy to find.
