My absolute favorite (but do not drink too often due to cost) :
Name: Delirium Tremens
Style: Belgian Golden Ale (8.5% ABV)
Cost: $12 / 750ml Bottle (retail)
Random Fact (from wikipedia, but still true
) : Delirium tremens is Latin for "trembling madness", commonly nicknamed "the DTs", indicating a violent sickness induced by withdrawal after alcohol abuse. Although it is commonly thought that sufferers hallucinate pink elephants, which may explain its use on the beer's label, the most common animals seen in delirium tremens hallucinations are cats, dogs, and snakes.
Favorite "Normal Beer"
Name: Stella Artois
Style: Belgian Lager (5.2% ABV)
Cost: $12-$18 12 Pack
Style: ??? Water?
Cost: Expensive now in SoCal, up to $10 a beer at concert/sporting venues
Why? It is now the defacto d-bag, trendy beer to drink (not that everyone who drinks it is this way, but currently that is the case in Southern California and probably other areas as well) Still can't wrap my head around it (for a cheap 12er, fine, but not as a "concert" beer!)
