Quoted from ultimategameroom:

HT is excellent! Focal Banger is also amazing. We’ve been able to get Alchemist beers in Pa for the last year or two but it’s always (1) 4 pack per customer which sucks!
Single cut makes some amazing beer too. I really like softly spoken magic spells IPA.

Same in RI, Heady and Focal randomly show up from time to time, one 4pk per person. I used to take a drive to VT and load up from time to time.

Has anyone ever had either of these beers before?
A Deal with the Devil 17%abv
Wendigo 15.5%
Both are Double Oaked

They get great reviews but were stupid expensive.
I grabbed one of each for a special occasion.
The last time I had an Anchorage Brewing beer was when my uncle in Washington state sent one to me. That was probably 20+ years ago.

Here's my current shelf. My tastes tend toward the malty. I also like Belgian ales, porters, stouts, and barley wine. Shiner Bock is my current go-to macro domestic. It wasn't too terribly long ago when you could not buy that around here. The Dark Hollow is brewed up in the Blue Ridge Mountains and is very satisfying.

About the only positive result of covid…The Alchemist distributes to the 5 surrounding New England states once every corresponding week (and sometimes out in Oregon and Washington apparently) to make up for all the lost local VT restaurant/bar sales when on-premise sales got shut down originally for the pandemic. Timing it right, I’ve been able to keep it stocked like Coors Light since 2020. I hope they keep it up.

It really still is the best example of the style, nearly two decades later…

Just had the Ayinger Pils on tap, it has a little hop to it. Not a lot but, not being an IPA fan, I wouldn't drink it again. Interested to get your input as I love a lot of the Ayinger products, especially the Celebrator Doppelbock.

Ayinger's hefe is one of my favorite wheat beers.

I agree with your assessment. The Ayinger Pils is hoppier than my usual tastes, but nothing as heavy handed as an IPA. In the summer months it is a nice, light, crisp change of pace. I have the Celebrator in regular rotation. I have those little plastic goats all over the place!

Lol I was with ya but at some point I wound up tossing them into recycling bin. Had it on tap a few times at the house.

Give Andechs Doppelbock a try.

Sierra Nevada is not doing a national distribution of Oktoberfest this year. That sucks! I always like to try it.

Here’s a light beer that’s great for sun activities, give it a try on taste.

Unibroue also bottles the Trader Joe’s Vintage Ales. They are usually quite nice.

It was homecoming and family weekend at my alma mater this weekend. I had a couple of pints of Vienna Lager on draught. That beer is ok in bottles, but is vastly improved on tap. What other beers do you find are significantly better on draught? Guinness comes immediately to mind. Others?

Pilsner Urquell is better on tap .

Picked up some 120 minute. Clocks in around 18% Had some 60 on hand as well. Was fun to do a comparison.

I've had a 120 in the "cellar" for years with the hopes that at some point it won't be like drinking nail polish remover. Might be time to try it.

#3285 1 year ago

This was a chance find and very very good. Aged in Buffalo Trace barrels.

Quite good

Only drank 1 of the 4 I got but I enjoyed it. Much maltier and sweeter than the 60. Color was also drastically different than the 60. It was definitely a little boozy tasting but not overbearing.

I'll have to rustle up some good photos to share later, maybe, but I have been a homebrewer of beer since 2010... My favorite styles are Belgian Trappist beers, with the top one being a Trappistes Rochefort 10.

#3289 1 year ago

Bought and sold a couple machines since last pst. Here's a pic of Devil's Backbone by RealAle next to a new acquisition.

In nonsensical beer news, it costs less for me to get Other Half to ship me beer from their Brooklyn location than it does for me to go to their Philly location and buy it myself.

That’s bizarre. What’s the story? Shipping beer has to be stupid expensive due to the weight.
I didn’t even know other half had Philly location. I’ll have to look that up.

Philly alcohol tax is 10%
So the $20 4/pack is $22 in Philly, but through the magic of free shipping it's still only $20 if I buy it online and have it shipped to my door. Other Halfs shipping is legit too. Very securely packaged.
The first time I bought some beer at the Philly location, that really cooked my noodle. I was so confused.

Anyway, the Philly location is great. If you ever go to a show at the Fillmore, Other Half is right there. Great place to pregame.

I’m glad you mentioned this as I didn’t even know there was a location in Philly. Is that the old Goose Island location?
I’ll hopefully be checking it out soon.

Yep. Old Goose place. It changed over to OH semi recently. I've been few times. Excellent beer and the grub is solid as well.

Tired Hands Extra Vanilla Chocolate Double Milkshake IPA
It's ok. Kind of tastes like a Tootsie Roll.
The regular vanilla is better.
