If Hockey Players were Beers: Part II
Jeff Halpern: Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA
A local, obscure favorite. Most people don't even realize the brewery has its own restaurant in Montgomery County. It's not as strong as some of the other IPA's, nor the best tasting. But a good introductory dogfish and a good pick when you need something with just a little flavor and a little class. It's not the kind of beer you want to drink all the time, but when an out of town friend comes to visit, you try to show your snooty knowledge of local micro-brews by grabbing one of these. It will make you look like an experienced beer drinker. Often seen in the same part of the beer isle along side much more potent beers like the Rogues.
Dwayne Roloson: Chimay Grand Reserve
As cliche' as it sounds, it's one of the few beers that actually get BETTER with age. A lot of hipsters have just recently got into this beer, not realizing it's been around FOREVER. You can't drink it all the time or you'll either end up broke or blind. It's better left as a one time purchase for a celebration. Plus, if you look at pictures of Scourmont Abbey, where it is brewed, it looks a lot like Skeletor's castle.
Matt Hendricks: Shiner
Boch WHEAT Beer. Thanks D'ohboy (ya jerk!)
I've said this before: Not just a clever name (I'll give you a moment). Blue Moon was once the king of popular
heffeweizen wheat market, but the growing popularity of this reletively new out-of-towner seems to be taking a chunk out of its market share. A lof of heff fans have since adopted Shiner as their new favorite Wheat beer. Blue Moon will alway hold a dear place for many fans, but Shiner is just as good. Plus. the Spoetzl Brewery makes a few different non-heffeweizen types as well... if you really have the hunch to change it up every once in a while.
Trevor Gilles: Olde English 40 oz
When you're a white guy trying to look tough, but really just end up looking like a douche, then this is probably what you're drinking. It has no real purpose other than to f$!k you up or to make you think you look intimidating. If anyone makes fun of you for drinking it, you can always crack a bottle over that persons' head and then taunt that person while hes on the ground bleeding as the cops haul you away for attempted murder. You'll probably just get a slap on the wrist for it anyways.
The Staal Brothers: The rainbow of Sam Adams beers
Some people love them. Some people hate them. There's plenty of heated debate on both sides. The point is, people won't SHUT THE HELL UP about them. Oh wait, I'm talking about the beers? Sure well, then definately above average, when you consider some of the other garbage in the beer isle and if someone hands me one, I'm not going to turn it down, but it's definitely not the beer I would have in my fridge if I wanted a combination of good taste and descent price. Sure, one of them won some kind of award in the past, but who cares? He's still an assh.. oh.. sorry, we're supposed to be talking about beers here?
