Rubaeus is wonderful. Glad it's in the seasonal rotation.

Its my first ever 100% Galaxy hops beer. Really cool. They really are tropical... Pineapples/mango. Fuck yeah. The beer itself is also just really solid IPA in terms of body and bitterness.... But these hops, fack!

Munch, where do you go to get good beers in the Big D?

really love galaxy hops. tooch sent me a bottle of galactic double daisy cutter and i still think about it sometimes. the mango notes and other tropical fruit notes was particularly impressive. was almost like juice.

Yeah, I had no idea. They're so distinctive. Insanely yummy.

CM of course, but you can get a lot of good stuff at Specs. Total Wine has an insane selection but kind of pricey.

Honestly, though, I see good craft beers at gas stations a lot of the time. There are a lot of beer lovers in Dallas. We've even got a handful of local microbrews doing good stuff. Lakewood Brewing is great, especially their milk stout.

So Duvel bought Boulevard for only $100 million? confused.gif seems way cheap.

AB-InBev bought Goose Island for $38 million...

True. GI had more nerd cred at the time of sale.... But blvd is larger than GI was thrn and has a big distribution network. Didn't Two Brothers sell for north of 70?

rubaeus is definitely better than cerise. they had it for a long time at the ginger man. maybe they still do? it might not have been very popular since i saw it in their rotation for quite a bit, but then again, very few people really go for those fruit ales.

the mango magnifico, on the other hand, was really not my cup of tea.

Volume-wise Boulevard produces only 22k more BBLs than Goose Fulton each year and has far less cache as well...
post #5684 of 7226
Goose now or then? I still think Boulevard is a bigger and more widely available brand than GI was before the sale.
post #5685 of 7226
Quick Google search shows GI at 127k barrels before the sale and Blvd at 180k+. Not that it matters. I was surprised at the low price for Goose and Boulevard.
