    Help! Need 3 More Tap Beers!

    I have 7 taps that will be running beer at my pub. the first four taps are:

    Harp
    Bass
    Guinness
    Hacker Pschorr Wiessbier

    I have 3 taps left to fill. Please post suggestion on what might go over well. I will be telling the distributors what I want on Friday. I would appreciate the help, and thanks!

    You need a bitter or good English Ale.

    EDIT: Oops, I didn't see Bass the first time. Make that a REAL ale.

    Bitters:

    Boddington's, Tetley (most likely to be available to you) If you can get Caledonian 80 Shilling, that's my personal fav.

    REAL Ales: Theakston's, Fuller's, Marston (Old Speckled Hen). Any good cask ale...the way good english beer is meant to be enjoyed.

    I have no idea what your chances are of getting Canadian Microbrews, but you might want to look into getting Creemore, or any of the Unibroue (Fin du Monde, Maudite, Trois Pistales) line.

    Besides seeking out a local favorite, Abita Amber, I look for my favorite non-local brands:

    - Anchor Steam
    - Goose Island

    How about a Texas favorite: Shiner Bock? It's brewed right here in the Lone Star State in a great little town called Shiner! It also comes in Blonde and Lager.

    I second the Boddington's and will add Newcastle Brown Ale. Perhaps Carlsberg?

    You need a porter and a premium brewed in the region.

    Remember Cyburbianites, this is your party headquarters. Actually perhaps this thread needs a poll.

    You need a beer from the New Glarus Brewery. The Edel Pils, Spotted Cow, or Uff-da would work.

    PBR!

    Samuel Adams
    Smithwick's Irish Ale (brought to you by the fine people at Guinness)
    Made by Guinness in Ireland, Smithwick's is inspired by John Smithwick's original recipe, which was first brewed at St. Francis Abbey in Kilkenny, Ireland. St. Francis Abbey has been in operation since 1710, making it one of Ireland's oldest breweries.

    I had Abita while I was visiting New Orleans and would vote for that. I like Sam Adams also.---Abita and Sam Adams in the next two taps

    I second the Samual Adams. It's a good choice for those young'uns who won't recognize most of the other beers on tap.

    Good point. Some young'un, or random off the street who might usually drink Budweiser, may be a little intimidated when confronted by all of those fancy, schmansy German sounding beer names but will order a Sammy just becasue he's heard of it before.

    A good beer that the unwashed masses can feel comfortable ordering.

    I was planning to say that, but see you beat me there, so I will second it.

    If a place has PBR on draught, I need to look no more

    I agree in part with Michaelskis ; you should offer a Bell's but would not recommend any of the wheat beers they produce, seeing as how you are already offering one world class weiss beer. I think you should consider offering something that will fill some of the style gaps in your initial four, such as their Harvest Ale (think IPA), or Two Hearted Ale. I also give their regular Brown Ale high marks in both flavor and originality. I suspect your Green Bay distributer should have no difficulty getting Bell's either.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor
