That's right around what I was paying last year for it. Have yet to pick up this year's release.

Damn, I thought I remembered paying closer to $13-14 for it last year.

Sam Adams Rebel IPA
surprised this was pretty okay considering the source. Not surprised it was pretty boring/mass market considering the source.

Lagu Sucks

Schlafly TIPA (almost done for the year. So sad.)

Tipa is still out? I think it's all gone in ny and nj. Wish I could try a fresh one

I'm finding that when I want a beer, a classic English bitter is the thing that I want most of the time. Had some casked Wells Bombardier tonight and enjoyed the heck out of it. Please suggest bottles I should kop. TIA.

Uncle Teddy's. I love that beer and the style more generally. Goose Island Honker's Ale is pretty decent.

Oh, the States. Yeah, beer is going into the niches it seems. But a bitter is sooooo yummmmmmy. I remember, a few months ago, grabbing a late night dinner at an English place, sitting at the bar; prime rib sandwich, horseradish sauce, watercress. Had a pint of bitter. Pretty perfect. I will keep an eye out for these.

Yeah a pint of classic 4% abv English bitter really hits the spot sometimes. Also you can drink it instead of water. I'm kinda craving one now after drinking pretty much IPAs, sours, and porters.

Don't think I ever posted this.  I commissioned Bridge Brewing of North Vancouver, BC, t brew a cask of White Peach Wheat Ale for my wedding reception.  It was pretty awesome to have a one night only beer.  It was a 40L cask, and it cost... wait for it... $147!

Dude that is pretty awesome. Did they use real peaches?
post #6238 of 7507

Yep, real Okanagan white peaches, which are roughly the size of your head.   We chose peach because they were in season at the time they would need to go into the brew.
