Jalapeno Ale - sounds interesting; could be good with the right food or a complete disaster. I like most of what Rogue offers, so may have to look for that one and try it with some nachos.

Current favorite beer is Shock Top Raspberry Wheat. There isn't a lot of beer choice where I live, and this I can find just about anywhere depending on the time of year.

True, I did see a watermelon wheat beer that sounded fairly enticing

The best craft beers are only available locally. Fresh. Its like asking "where can I get the best chili?" If it has to be shipped to you it will be bear piss.

I shall respectfully call you a moron (in a nice way)...

While some of the best IPAs should be consumed fresh and at the source, they're one of the simplest beers to craft and least complex to drink.

Quadrupels, stouts, any form of strong ale, barley wine, etc etc etc often are bottle fermented ales that age very well and are often at their finest 3-5 years after bottling.

Each beer pictured below is an age able bottle, upright in a a cool, dark environment. The bottle of rochefort 8 Christmas was 3 years old and one of the best beers I have had to date. The westvleteren 8 was 2 years old, the 12 was 2.5.

the westvleteren 12 in the picture of multiple bottles (with the wax around the cap) was bottled in 2004. I'll be drinking it next week. That same picture has a 2009 pannepot grand riserva, a 2005 cuvee delphine. All far superior than fresh from the source.

If you look at the bottle of Kopi loewak (they stopped making it, animal rights issues and all that), it's an enjoy within 5 years bottle.

That said, you can still trade for the fresh beers...I have had shipped bottles of pliney the elder, blind pig, heady topper, swami, Blazing world, and many other overhyped American IPAs, and enjoyed them all the same.

For the record, Blazing world is an imperial amber, not imperial pale ale, but is considered a fresh from the can beer. I'm not generally a fan of ambers, but if you're local to San Diego, do yourself a favor and grab a 4 pack of that glorious brew

I am truly jealous of the journey you have taken your taste buds on. Ever had Dragons milk? Also, if I were to mail order a beer as a present for my father, do you have a recommendation?

Dragons milk is a glorious ba stout! Pour a little over some vanilla bean ice cream...sounds girly, but you can thank me later!

What's your dad normally drink?
