They had to move it this year, it was originally scheduled for March at the Dilboy but I think they were renovating or something. Guess we'll have to see what happens next year.

That makes sense. I guess it usually is the beginning of March because I would go on Friday session then go to redbone's for some friday night oysters.

have fun.

Great Lakes Edmund Fitzerald Porter is pretty excellent. Might be better than Founders, still not as good as Sinebrychoff or Olfabrikken, which is close to impossible to find in America now anyway.

The Revenge of Goldilocks and Night Train were two from that day that I can actually remember considering I probably sampled, spit out, tossed and pissed out 100 beers at the event...

ya I'll be there. I really wanted to make the opening of their brewpub a few months ago but had to cancel last minute. They are definitely on of those breweries to be on the lookout for. I'm going to be back up in milwaukee next weekend and am definitely bringing home a trunk full of their goods.

Just ended up buying a case of Singha beer, hopefully I will be able to pick it up sometime next week. Now I just need to find a way to get some Union beer from Slovenia and also Goose Island. I have to say the beer store I was at in Austin, back in March had a really great selection.

 

Interesting thing is, I drink mostly Guiness and Sapporo two of the most common beers that are at the grocery store. Don't get me wrong, Quebec does have some decent artisan beers, but those are for some really refined pallets.

Gross, stop drinking Asian beers.
post #4477 of 7650
i dont really see a big difference between singha, sapporo, and stuff like budweiser and coors. the asian ones are a little better maybe, but not really


i want to leblue release today. spent so much money on beer. met some BAs and they shared some beers (old rabbit's foot and 50/50 eclipse, both were just fantastic. eclipse was rich with honey, ORF is a fantastic barleywine, really true to type).

If you guys find 14 in your area i would encourage you to pick it up. it's a black pale ale, but instead of being super hopped up like most american pale ales, it's more on the sweet, fruity side of things. at $9 a bomber imo it's a pretty good deal. like a far better ithaca ground break.

can't wait to try this.

GTFO

You kidding? No relation at all. Prefer Sapporo to Singha but cannot be compared to that bud and coors urine water.

I'd rather drink Asian fish water, over what the major breweries here in North America put out. Don't get me wrong I do like my St Ambroise (QC micro brewery) Stout though. Nothing like a stout. True the beers I did mention in my other post are completely different than the Stout, but they are enjoyable to have while at work or for a pool party.

i drink sapporo and singha occasionally and coors, bud, yuengling and their light versions for beer pong but honestly asian macros are not that much better than american macros. basically taste like malty water. american macros are maybe more bland. and seriously if you're advocating that asian macros are far superior your taste buds need a check.

also st. ambrois is really not a major brewery...

there's quite a few big breweries in the us that put out some great consistent delicious widely available brews. sierra nevada, anchor, brooklyn, sam adams, dogfishead come to mind. maybe magic hat. honestly never had a drain pour from any of those breweries

My bad forgot to put in (Quebec micro brewery).  It was more a comparison of what I drink, depending of the occasion or the time of the year.

Sapporo Black is pretty good from what I remember.

The little store up the street from me carries every Dogfish Head variety available, and I've been trying them out as much as I can. Nothing really beats the 90 Minute IPA but I just got some of this last night and it's pretty great. http://www.dogfish.com/brews-spirits/the-brews/year-round-brews/palo-santo-marron.htm

Ommegang Hennepin

tried this at a restaurant tonight and would like to buy it if I could find it

It's not that hard to find. Even Trader Joe's has it here.
