sweet lord o'mighty!

Dogfish Head 120 Minutes to be in limited supply early September in OH! First time ever since we just repealed that dumb ABV limit law.

The best small craft beer brewery, in my opinion, from the UK are in San Diego for the Festival of Dankness. They're called Cloudwater Brewery so if anybody is local to San Diego they should try them.

 

Definitely recommend their Double IPA v6 and v7 that they are showcasing. Their previous versions are some of the best IPAs I've had.

Ballast Point Habanero Sculpin- good, little spicier than other pepper beers I have had, almost 2 much. Probably would have been better if I was eating something different, like wings or Mexican. Worth trying if you like spicy

 

Nimble Giant by Troegs- I'm not sure how far they distribute outside of PA and since this is once a year and limited it may be hard to find but it is one of the better double IPAs I have ever had.

I picked up Nimble Giant in a tall can a few weeks back, delicious.

I thought the Habanero Sculpin was spicier than most pepper beers too. Still very good.

the 12th of Never, a pale ale from Lagunitas is very good. Get some if you can.

Yes way too early starting in August. Starting around Labor Day I saw more Oktoberfest beers and started to try a few of the regulars. Never been a fan of pumpkin flavored beverages, nor pumpkin pie so I avoid most of that stuff.

Atom Smasher by Two Brothers is a damn good Oktoberfest. They distribute to most of the states on the Great Lakes.

I also have tasted Asian beers like Asahi and Cerveza Negra. I enjoyed drinking it.

Picked up 3 bottles of KBS the other day.

 

This past winter had someone send me some Julius and my wife was able to get her hands on a can of Heady Topper for my birthday.

For the IPA/Pale Ale crowd, been drinking a lot of Pipeworks and Half Acre recently and recommend keeping an eye out for them as they're starting to distribute across the Great Lakes.

Virginia has been booming when comes to craft beer. Amongst others, I highly recommend anything you can get your hands on from The Veil, The Commonwealth, or Triple Crossings.

 

If you find yourself traveling along I95, it's worth stopping in Richmond and visiting some breweries.

I have quit drinking. December 16th will be 6 months sober. I have a disease that I'm happy to say is in remission!

I live in Richmond and can confirm that there are lots of good craft brews here.

Have you always been in Richmond? I am down in VB.

 

Did you get any of the Swimming Poolz from The Veil? Probably my personal favorite of theirs. That or Casual Drinks.
