Drinking a Weyerbacher Merry Monks. Nothing fancy, but I quite like it.
post #5749 of 10998
Hated the Merry Monks when I had it a year or so ago, don't know why. I'm not a huge fan of barleywines in general, but that one was even worse than usual. Maybe I'll give it another try to see if my taste has changed at all.

^ The bottle I had last night turned out not to be as good as I'd remembered the beer being in general. Is it considered a barleywine? I thought it was a tripel, but perhaps there's some way the two categories can overlap (I'm not a beer expert)?

Stone IPA. Pretty good.
post #5754 of 10998
Okay, I like the IPA a lot. Might have something to do with having had 5 of them in the last 90 minutes.

Ruination IPA is even better
post #5756 of 10998
So I've heard. Will have to try. Arrogant bastard, BA arro bas, and some other stone beers are really not that impressive to me. Good, but not worth the hype and/or price tag.

Try the Suede Imperial Porter too

But for reals, my fave customer says the same thing. IHard to find here though. Re: ruination, i do like me some DIPA but I prefer the nicely aromatic non palate wrecking straight IPA.

Along that vein, today I tastes Sam Adams rebel IPA. West coast style. National release Feb 1 2014. Really similar to Lagunitas minus the malty finish lagunitas has. Pretty exciting. Maybe the best $8.99 IPA I've had.

what's the craft scene like for u? Can micros seld-distribute in TX? Here they can if they're under 30k brls a year.

I rep Lagunitas, bells, Schlafly, Breckenridge, boulder, and a lot of the other medium sized but well known craft guys. And another guy does great lakes, founders, and the rest of them. Is selection good in TX for non-TX beers?

I don't know the laws exactly but I know there's a lot of stuff we don't get at all. It's getting better though. We just got Founders, Firestone Walker and Hitachino this year. I really want Bells and Schlafly. We do get Lagunitas, Boulder and Breckenridge, but I've never tried the latter 2. Which ones should I try?
