I love this German beer. Easy drinking pilsner that enables you to anchor yourself to any bar and talk about anything for hours and actually make sense. Session city.  They should hand this out at marathons instead of Gatorade. Reinheitsgebot, a lot.

Bourbon Sour Porter

Almanac Brewing of San Francisco has it's own unique approach, coining the phrase "Farm To Barrel",  where they select a certain farm for each beer in the named series exclusively.
Tart, vanilla, bourbon and chocolate are what lurks in this gracefully complex beer. Lots of work went into this beer! Developed in twice used bourbon barells, (first bourbon, then beer) impregnated with sour cultures, then left to mutate and take on the qualities of it's host barrel and contents kinda how The Thing imitates other life forms. Don't let this one get away.
