Not that I even know if I can, it might end up being closer to 8+ which would start to get a bit expensive.

Risky proposition. If one bottle breaks in one of your 50lbs boxes you lose that box. If FedEx is anal and they see you shipped four similarly sized boxes at the same time you can lose all of them.

I am going to Oregon Bewer's Festival next week, wondering anything in particular there I should go out of my way to find? Here's the beer list:

Been on a Belgian-style ale kick lately, as well as imperial stouts.

And a ton of other sours. I should really expand

Had several bottles of my Dad's saison yesterday Man. I need to get into homebrewing. You never would have guessed that some 60 year old IT nerd made it in his garage.

Also had a bunch of Bells, Boulder, Lagunitas, and Samuel smith stuff.

I know this was an old post but I have to agree about the Lagunitas WTF. I bought a bottle of it this weekend for drinking while laying in the hammock. Very disappointed. Much too malty.

I live just west of downtown Birmingham but rarely go out to eat in town because I am usually too cheap but I have been waiting patiently for this place to open up ever since I heard about it because I've had the beer the one time I went to Big Rock and really liked it and would enjoy it even more at a place that isn't the overpriced Big Rock. Last Wednesday I had a dentist appointment in the late afternoon about two blocks from the there and decided to walk over towards Griffin Claw afterwards because I knew they were doing a private preview and I wanted to try my luck at getting in and was welcomed with open arms. I had the St. Clair and the Red Rock and really liked both. The burger was pretty good too.

I'm itching to go back there soon now that they are officially open. One of my bosses really wants to check it out so I keep suggesting to him that we need to find a reason to schedule a lunch meeting there.

I had both of those beers too. Both very good. The bourbon aged stouts were awesome.

Has anyone tried Goose Island Bourbon County Stout? I don't normally love stouts, but this is one of the best I've had.

Newb here.

 

Went to a tasting of Oskar Blues at a favorite liquor store in Columbus, Ohio. I live (unfortunately) in WV as I finish my last year of undergrad, and have only 1 good source of solid beer. My knowledge of crafts is quite lacking, in the process of developing tastest & whatnot. 

 

Since this is my first beer post, I will post the last 2 weeks of tastings:

Also, from the tasting from today, had Oskar Blues Pilsner, Pale Ale, G'knight, & the Chub Ale I purchased. All were fairly interesting, although to my unrefined palate the pils was a tad odd. 

 

Et le crème de la crème was the Trappistes 10 Rochefort :). An inspirational beer which I hope to learn all of the small nuances of by the end of my beer journey!

Welcome. Of the Oskar Blues I've tried, I think the Gubna Imperial IPA is my favorite, but the Oskar Blues Pilsner is definitely not bad (not my favorite pilsner, but not bad).

Really, most Belgian beers are just awesome. Belgians and IPAs tend to be my favorites for quite different reasons.

Imperial was there, but not for the tasting unfortunately and as I was there mainly for the liquor I didn't purchase it to try. That was actually my first foray into craft Pilsner, so that may skewed to my perception of main stream "Pilsner". 

 

I agree with the Belgian reference, I lived in France last year and thus started my appreciation of all things with alcohol. Really learn to appreciate alcohol as a necessary component of wonderful taste as opposed to a social stigma (damn US). 

 

Also went to a wonderful French Bistro today and had a few Kronenbourg 1664 bottles, perfectly representative of my stay in France, along with a wonderful lunch.

I've had all of the pictures beers many times (plusrochefort 10) and they are all great examples of their respective styles. The pyramid is a little heavy for hefe but still very good.
