Ramblings: I don't need a reason to talk about Beer. Ever.

Just read an article all about New York Craft Beer week, and it inspired me to make a list of the Beers there that would top my list of 'Must have touch my lips and give me pleasure'. It is as follows:

Collaboration Not Litigation, Avery Brewing Company, Boulder, Colorado

In 2000, Russian River and Avery Brewing Companies discovered they were simultaneously brewing Belgian-style ales called “Salvation.” Instead of suing each other for trademark infringement, they combined forces, brewing the two beers side-by-side and then mixing them together to form a hybrid.
{The concept of the Hybrid, combined with the name alone makes me want to sample}

Joe Mama’s Milk Coffee Stout, Keegan Ales, Kingston, New York

A heavy, full-bodied beer that gets it unique character from Keegan’s skillful use of milk in the brewing process. “Lactose won’t ferment,” Philips says, “so you get a milky sweetness and a full, unctuous texture that’s not from carbonation.”
{Coffee Milk Stout? I needn't Read any further...}

Monster Ale, Brooklyn Brewery, Brooklyn

“Some beer really benefits from time, just like a fine wine,” Schaffner says. Brooklyn’s barley wine has been aged since 2003 and is now ready to be served. “The aging mellows it out and helps all the flavors meld together so it becomes a much more balanced beer. You’ll find a lot of plumlike characteristics in this one.”
{Barley Wine....MMMMMMMM}

Adoration Ale, Brewery Ommegang, Cooperstown, New York

Available to the public for the first time, Brewery Ommegang’s holiday ale will have a bouquet reminiscent of late fall and winter. Adoration was brewed with coriander, cardamom, mace, grains of paradise, and sweet orange peel
{I love Winter Ales, almost always. To add a sweet orange peel, with cardamom and coriander makes me mouth water simple typing}

On the same note, I would love to take part in this Beer Celebration:
