PJ, try checking out a good liquor store, or, if you can find one in your area, a good beer store. There are a couple in town here that have 70-100 beers at one time (as a guess, at least.) You just moved to Denver, right? If you are there, there is a great smallish brewery in town. Great Divide makes 2 awesome IPAs (Titan and Hercules), and a great Imperial Stout. http://www.greatdivide.com/thebeers/ Flying dog is also in Denver, and makes some pretty good stuff. Denver is basically the Mecca of microbreweries, so you are in a prime spot to start exploring.
Awesome thanks. I am moving to Denver next week so i will have to explore.
Typically as a college kid we would get the cheapest so that was busch light or something similar and if we wanted to get fancy we would get bud light ha. Now I am actually making money I am trying to up the quality level.
I was the same way. Once you start drinking better stuff, it is hard to turn back. Also, if you are still in Chigago there is a brewery called Three Floyds from Indiana that has stuff in bars there, and is supposed to be awesome. I can't get it here, but from word of mouth, if you see it somewhere, I would give it a shot.
There are actually also some breweries and liquor stores that will ship beer. Our best source for beers in Iowa, John's Grocery in Iowa City, is one that will ship beer.
has anyone here had skull splitter? http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile...atest&start=20
I am not sure what to think about it since it a little syrupy,but i did enjoy it overall. i think i would give it an A-/ B+. I want to give it another try but i haven't seen it in while.
Never had it, SL. Not a big fan of syrupy beers, in general, though.
On another note, I'll be in San Francisco in a couple of months, and am really looking forward to trying some of the CA beers that I have heard a lot about. Some of the Alesmith and Russian River stuff in particular.
Got to check out a few bars that had some good selectiosn from the local microbrewies. I wrote them all down but dont have the notepad with me. I liked 90 schilling and sunshine wheat was pretty good as well. Me and my girlfriend are going to head out to some of the microbreweries pretty soon. Some are very cheap and some are free.
Anyone had anything good and/or new lately to suggest?
Named for the train that used to run from Downtown Ames to ISU Campus, Dinkey Wheat has a flavor derived from coriander, chamomile, and orange peel, making for an enjoyable and unique drinking experience.
