Sorry if I forget to add some of the great brews I've tried from the fine brewers on this board but here goes;
No particular order;

palerthanale-
American Wheat;clean crisp wonderful summer beer!
1492; he used my recipe and made it BETTER than mine!

Skotrat-
Oatzen pale ale; just a fantastic beer all around!
ABC; awesome beverage, hard to describe but easy to drink.

Paul Hayslett-
Berliner Weisse; a favorite of mine! Clean and crisp and oh my....
Flanders Red; nice sour beer!

Pacman-
Kolsch; the Kolsch man!
Helles; one of the best homebrews I have ever had!

Hophead-
IIPA; schooled me on IIPA's!

Chumley-
Wheatwine; beat my a$$ at my own game!

MJR-
Orval clone; say no more!

Just felt like throwing out a pat on the back to a few of the dudes here who make killer beers.
Hope I get the chance to try more!!!!
Please feel free to post some of your faves!
Nothing heavy here, just a "feel good" post!
cheers,tim

Tim,
I sure hope you're not starting the process of deifying these beers.

Tim's Wheatwine is by far the best example of a wheatwine that I have ever had.

I have not.

I wish I could.

I'm on a deserted island.

Even Les Stroud would be challenged.

The only B&Vers whose beers I've tasted are Tim, Greg Gettman, and Scott DeWalt.

Tim's beers are always excellent, especially his 1492, but his wheatwine is just outstanding. I find it hard to believe that Chumley can better it.

Greg has brought me a number of great beers. In particular, there was a wee heavy that was perfect. I wish he'd drop by more often (hint, hint).

Scott's Flanders Red has won a bunch of awards and deserves them all. Very complex, with just a bit of oak. Mmmmm....

I can't think of any others from this board. Maybe it's time to start a round of trades?

Never underestimate the power of chumleybrau, Paul.

I have participated in the BrewRat's BABE online beer tasting for the past three years, some of them being B&Vers. Skotrat, The Gimp, Steve Jones (sorry for breaking your cover, FR), Macker....all are excellent brewers. Even that expelled buttwipe MacGregor Outkast can brew some killer beer.

I have had several chumleybrau's, one of macker's and one of dan's beers. Most good to very good.

No problem Chumley. I've never hidden the fact that I'm a member of the brewrats - it's just that I'm one of the more 'civilized' ones

Skot's Oatzen Pale and ABC were indeed great brews, as was his Olde Ale a few years ago (the BABE winner in 06 I believe).
I've had dozens of Gimp beers (we're in the same hb club) - Night Terror (a DT clone) is one of his best, and his 7 yr old pLambic is GREAT.
And yes, even chumleybrau is quite good (ouch - it hurt to say that! ).

I don't think I've had any other BnVrs beers, tho I may have had one or two of Dan's if he had some at the BBL booth this year.

Oh yes....I forgot to mention Dan Listermann's most excellent Iced Imperial India Pale Ale. That was one of the best IPAs I have ever had.

His pale ale, however, tasted like cooked corn. I suspected he cooled that beer with a fan...

Scott, I did not "throw it away." I passed it on to somebody else who reported it here as being quite good. I would have cheerfully tried it except that Chumley could not pass up one of his "Brett digs." That ruined it for me.

Oh, and Chumley, the 3PA was also fan cooled.

Skot's Oatzen pale ale kicked ass! The schwarz beer was killer too!

Now that I live in Canuckistan it's a lot more difficult to exchange beers with others here. I have to have them shipped to a US address and bring them across the border myself.

But let me think whose beers have been memorable over the years. I've had a couple of Bob G's beers that were very good, as well as his raspberry melomel that put me way over the limit. Paul Edwards' beers have been tasty, and Dan's 3IPA was very drinkable. As for Canadians, I've had good beers from Onebarrel.

I'm sure I'm leaving someone out. As they say, memory is the second thing to go, and I forget the first.

you know...

Thanks guys. Honestly... Thanks

That Oatzen was something I really liked a lot but was never sure how much others would like it.

I guess we never really know what will work until we try it

Thanks Bill... your Adventinus clone was great! and your summer ale - the one made with Maris Otter that you had on tap was good also.

I still have plenty of English Barley Wine left and am planning on bottling a Braggot and a US hopped Barley Wine soon - some will probably make it's way to Burlington.

Sorry, Chumley!! I didn't mean for that to sound the way it came out. I just meant that I like Tim's wheatwine so much, I find it hard to believe that anyone can make a better one. I shouldn't have singled you out.

Skotrats Imperial Russian Stout. Brewed this 2 years ago and have a few bottles left. Absolutely awesome stuff
