is a list of the beers that will be at the World Beer Festival in
Durham NC next weekend that I haven't already tried.  Please make
suggestions as to which ones I shouldn't miss.  I usually prefer
darker ales, browns, porters, and sweeter stouts.  Thanks for
your help.

Re: World Beer Festival (long)
Weeping Radish Fest and Black Radish are among my favorites, and having
recently tried Sir Walter Raleigh Ale, I wouldn't wash my hair with it, much
less drink it. Yuck.

Thanks.....yes warnings are welcome too, didn't think to ask for
them in the original post.

Re: World Beer Festival (long)
Dragonhead Stout (I thought) was excellent...

King David Red, Uncle Nut's Brown, Helles Angel Golden Lager, Joseph Hewes
Golden Ale,
Horniblow's Tavern Ale, Edenton Pumpkin Ale, - these are all from the new
Edenton Brewing Company off Wicker Drive in Raleigh - Horniblow's Tavern is a
taproom above the brewery that's open 7 days a week - please come by and try
them there. Definitely a great place to hang out. The Tavern Ale is my favorite
of these (very hoppy)

Steelhead Scotch Porter is one of my faves... Battlefield Black is good...

Thanks very much for the recommendations.  I'm afraid we won't
have time to visit the taproom this time, we're only coming up
for the festival, maybe next time.

It looks to me like you prefer malty tones over hoppy ones?

I haven't heard of many of the brews you mention but...I do want to put in
my 2 cents worth. lol

Rogue Hazelnut Brown Ale is one of *my* favourites. The stuff that I've
tried from St.
Peter's (the organic Ale and Bitter) were very nice.

The Holy Grail Ale..was ok as was the Wee Heavy ale.(Bellhaven, I assume)

As far as IPAs/PAs and Pilsners go....
The Hop Pocket Pils and Ale are wonderful! Also, try the 60 minute from
Dogfish Head and,well, anything Cask would definitely be something I'd try

Have fun!

Best regards,

We certainly plan on it!

Re: World Beer Festival (long)
I would try as many of beers on the list that I could and report back to
the list what you think. Everyone tastes are different so you should try
to taste the beer you want.  I don't like Whit beer that is no reason
for you not to try the style. I would be interested in what you think of
different beers
My advice is just go for it, and have a good time

That is the normal procedure for beer festivals, but look at the
list again, there's no way I can try all of those in only 4
hours.  That's why I asked for suggestions.  Just so I don't get
back and find out I may have missed the best one there.  
I have been to other festivals, but not one with this many
