HOLY crap !  Dogfish 90 Minute on tap !!!  So much for those new seats we got in Section 117.  I may never get out of the Red Porch.  But really, we can only hope there will be similar variety around the park.

Poor 2IPA's.  She's hoping the DC Sports Bog's list has a typo and it's really the Dogfish 60 Minute.  Please offer her your sympathy, condolences, and understanding to her.  She may find herself replaying every one of our 25+ games to me on the Orange Line on the way home each night.

But for us, it all starts on Saturday.  I promise WNFF a complete inventory of the taps around the park.  So if anyone's interested in taps outside there seats, post you section numbers and I'll do some research.

Well, it's true - the Red Porch has some great beers on tap, such as the Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA and Bell's Kalamazoo Stout.  But I didn't see any good beers anywhere else but in the Red Porch.  The Red Loft had the same old crap from last year, as did all the beer stands we saw on the main concourse.

Bell's Kalamazoo Stout... that just sounds interesting. What is it like?

last year there were decent beers scattered throughout, if that's gone its sad. Then again I consider Hook and Ladder to be a good beer, so maybe my standards aren't high enough.

What we saw on the first level, 3rd base side is Heineken, Dos Equis, and the array of Millar products (Blue Moon, Leinekin (sp ?), Miller Lie, etc).  None of these were good enough for my tastes, but the Red Porch beers were GREAT.

I seem to remember NOTLD likes Young's Chocolate Stoudt.  Bell's isn't as much chocolate, but very creamy and far better than Guiness.  I mixed it with the Dogfish 90 minute IPA (ok - so I'm a bastard - that's Mr. Bastard to you).  All I can say is 2IPAs and I know this will be our 7th inning beer for each game.

Damn Miller, first they block Cap Brewery's Beer Garden now they get rid of the good beer. Speaking of Miller, is there a worse beer, more flavor is only a good thing if it doesn't taste like dog crap

I like both Young's and Guinness. This sounds up my alley. Where in the Park do you get it? It will probably be one of the first beers I try this season.

Out in left center field area, there's the Red Porch on the main level and the Red Loft right above it.  The good beers are in the Red Porch.  It's a small bar/restaurant, but anyone can buy beer there and take it to the seats.

I've been drinking Harp in recent months = awesome.

I'm still a Miller Lite guy and that will never change.  But during this summer I'll be rotating Harp, Sam Adams Summer Ale, ML and probably some pale ales.

Watch it; I found many a night years ago that Harp will leave you totally wasted and you can't figure out why? It must have been that 12th one.

Harp tastes good but it's WAY over priced for a regular lager mass produced in the US.

Bell's is good stuff.  There are usually kegs of it at Eagles tailgates at DC United games, and they have been for the most part excellent.  On Saturday it was the porter, which was a hell of a nice beer.

Harp. *GAG*

A friend of mine bought a six pack of this on the cheap one night and neither of us could get into it.

There's a Bell's Oberon event from 5-8 tonight at Union Jack's in Ballston. I think the featured beer is Oberon, and I will have to walk right by the place on my way home tonight. Temptation abounds!

In all seriousness, it would be interesting to see a comparison of alcohol sales figures at all 30 ballparks.

Bell's had one let the Turtle have a sip. He went and drank the keg dry. They never replaced the keg  :panic:

Had two 90 minutes, so I guess that a 3 hour, anyway they were nice.  :glug: :glug:
