General question: Does the beer scene in the south(east) just generally suck? I went to a so-called "craft beer" bar tonight with 20+ taps and the highest ABV beer they had on draft was 6.x%. (Not that ABV is how I judge beer, it just gives you an idea of the lack of variety.) All the local IPAs are boring and weak, and there's almost nothing Belgian or Belgian-inspired. This has been the experience I've had the last week I've been down here, not just at this bar.

Its VERY hit or miss. Sometimes you can find gems but for the most part bars usually carry the same crap.

So I enjoyed This One Goes To 11 Ale. It was like a hoppier more alcoholic Hopslam execpt more complex as well. It was a little more boozy than I would like so a little age would probably benefit it.

Got a couple of the tenth anniversary Utopias. The place that I got them had an open one so I got to try it. Its a little hot still, but the flavors are pretty awesome. The rum comes through nicely.

Dogfish Head Burton Baton. It's great and all, but I don't see a lot of difference between this and the 90 min IPA, other than a slightly higher ABV. The hops tend to overpower the oak barrel flavors.

A beer-loving buddy of mine just posted this link on his Facebook wall as a sign of how much things have changed:
