Beer Tips: What beer to choose as a gift? (Day 3)

In this series I'm exploring the difficulties of buying beer as a gift. Today I'm using BeerAdvocate to help in my search. I discovered that Bryan listed his favorite beer on his BeerAdvocate profile as Belgian Strong Pale Ales. So I check out the list on BeerAdvocate for that style.

20 most reviewed Belgian Strong Pale Ales

  • Duvel, Brouwerij Duvel Moortgat NV
  • La Fin Du Monde, Unibroue
  • Delirium Tremens, Brouwerij Huyghe
  • Don de Dieu, Unibroue
  • Pranqster, North Coast Brewing Co.
  • La Chouffe, Brasserie d'Achouffe
  • Allagash Grand Cru, Allagash Brewing Company
  • Pauwel Kwak, Brouwerij Bosteels
  • Salvation, Avery Brewing Company
  • Au Courant, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
  • Damnation, Russian River Brewing Company
  • Affligem Blond, Brouwerij De Smedt / Brouwerij Affligem
  • Pangaea, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
  • Lucifer, Brouwerij Riva S.A.
  • Moinette Blond, Brasserie Dupont sprl
  • Demolition 1800 Ale, Goose Island
  • Hitachino Nest Red Rice Ale, Kiuchi Brewery
  • Unibroue 15, Unibroue
  • Southampton Grand Cru, Southampton Publick House

I might just print this out and take it to a store and see if I can find some of them. I have to find a store that sells singles in PA.
