What kind of beer is everyone drinking tonight?


Recommended Posts

Hey Hawks/Ditka, can you get Daisy Cutter? Its been high on my list for a while...ever get lucky and see Galactic Double Daisy Cutter?

It's here all the time...if I had known would have brought some with me. Galactic is a once a year beer at the brewery only and they just released it. Released on the Friday I got back from FL and bombers were sold out and the growlers were done at noon at Sat.

I didn't even realize DC was a Half Acre beer. I'll have to get some next time we swap.

Just picked up a mixed 6 pack of Funky Buddha More Moro (Blood Orange IPA), Sixpoint Jammer (Gose), Boulevard Hibiscus Gose, and Brooklyn Sorachi Ace. While I was shopping I had a draft of Two Henry's Roasted Jalapeno Blueberry Porter, it was pretty good.

They have 12 packs of Racer 5 at TotalWine for $14.99. Can't pass that up.

BTW, TotalWine is the greatest store for beer/wine/liquor on the planet. Selection of everything is incredible and prices are lowest. See if there is one near you. Not too many of them but they are in 16 states.

Yup, the ones in Tampa and Sarasota have the best craft selection Ive ever seen aside from actual craft beer stores. I love having one 45 minutes away.

Eta: I haven't had a Racer 5 in a while. Great beer, one of the first IPAs that got me hooked on craft.

stores also can't refill growlers or sell those mini bottles of liquor they serve on airplanes in Chicago.

One of the silliest alcohol-related laws here is the single beer law. You cannot buy a single 12 oz beer from a store. But you can buy a single 22 oz beer from a store. :loco:

So the Sixpoint Jammer Gose I picked up earlier to try now has me wondering if it even resembles a Gose...from a review on BA:

Subtly salty (just a hint of Maldon), ocean-y and savory with a hint of crab and wind-combed beach sand.

lol a hint of crab and sand?

:lmao:

This is the most Un-Gose-like Gose Ive ever had. No salt, no sour...it kind of has a hint of soap taste. Horrible representation of the style. The slim cans are cute though.

That at the place you sent us to for the Carmel Flan ale? That place was cool as ####.

I'm trying to think if CA even has any alcohol laws

We have terrible growler laws. Most states let you fill any containers anywhere (think bars and whole foods taps). We have to have a growler from the specific brewery and fill it only at breweries. Most people are pretty confused when I explain that to them.

If you know anyone up in Maryland have them send you cans of Union Craft's Old Pro. Great Gose.

The first part is f'ing horrible. Place in FL that Wing sent me to had a good beer selection and 5 drafts.

Yep. They opened a place by me called Open Bottle that last weekend had Maine Lunch, Grapefruit Sculpin, and others on tap. Would have been great to just show up with a growler or 4 for those alone.

Same here.

When was this put in place? I remember when I lived in Lincoln Park in the mid to late 90's and going to Sam's Wine and Liquors (now Binnys LP) and getting single Belgian bottles.

Do you have Friday's restaurants in Chicago? How do they operate because they advertise every hour is happy hour. If the law was put in place to ban Friday's than it might be worth keeping around.

IIRC there isn't any alcohol specials only appetizers or other food specials.

It's my local Pizza Port's anniversary party today. Started at my soccer bar at 930am for the FA Cup final. Walked across the street to meet the lady and drink a Nelson. Now back at the soccer bar for the Copa del Rey final. Then finally hit the port party. :banned:

I'm on my way to the Burning Can beer festival hosted by Oskar Blues up in Lyons, CO. It's a really cool festival. We're camping in this scenic spot in the foothills of the Rockies directly next to the beer festival, which features canned beers from 50+ breweries. They have all kinds of sporting events going on, a beer relay race, lots of food trucks, and a concert by the Revivalists tonight.

Picked up a six pack of Not Your Father's Root Beer. So good. Perfect beer for enjoying the weather outside.

Um...it's not a beer though. It's alcohol root beer.

The side of the bottle says "beer with natural vanilla extract" and flavors. I don't know anything about the process they use to make it, but they at least describe it as beer.

Knee Deep Hoptologist DIPA. Good, not great. Was hoping for some of their other beers, which were listed on the beer shop's site, but I guess they sold out.

I will see that for a 9% beer, it is pretty clean and not overly sweet or with a syrupy mouth feel. Interested in trying their other double and triple IPAs.

I've had their Simtra Triple IPA (11.25%), and it was one of the best high ABV IPAs I've had. Super hoppy and not too malty. Dangerous drinkability for 11+%. Edited by Wingnut
