Quoted from NorCalRealtor:

My new favorite beer! Anyone else tried this? So far I've only found it at BevMo and it's $10 for a 4 pack. Ouch!

I haven't had one in a few years, but vaguely recall thinking it would be good on pancakes or waffles. Very strong!

Has anyone tried Heady Topper by The Alchemist?
Number 1 beer in the world. Been dieing to try some. May make a special trip up Waterbury Vermont to get some. I'm a big double IPA guy.

I wonder if Total Wine sells this? Will look for it on my next visit.

Quoted from Robotoes:

they do not. it does not leave the state of vermont unless in private hands.
great total wine out there in daytona though!

Total Wine is da bomb. I remember when I used to have to look all over just to find Sierra Nevada. Love Total Wine.

Quoted from Law:

It's better than Shiner. I don't particularly miss Yuengling, but I'm pretty sure it's the only beer I've ever bought in a 24 pack.

I'm not a fan of Shiner either. Be careful sharing that opinion in Texas though

Is there such a thing as a low calorie/carb pale ale that actually tastes good? Why don't they make a Sierra Nevada Light Pale Ale?

#1021 3 years ago
Quoted from meSz:

I'm probably one of ten people in the US that hates IPAs.

In all honesty after 3 weeks of eating healthy with no alcohol, I had a few SNPAs on my birthday. The taste was overpowering and that's always been one of my favorites. Maybe that's why people like Michelob Ultra? Regardless, the experience makes it easier to stick to a healthier diet.

So Vegas now has a Total Wine (next to Fry's). My vodka was more expensive than my local Total Wine, but the Lagunitas and Sierra Nevada were a good bit cheaper.

#1169 2 years ago

I did have a great Sierra Nevada Narwhal earlier this week too.

I saw this in Vegas and should have picked some up as my local Total Wine doesn't have it.

Picked up two cases of Waldo yesterday.

I almost picked up some of this Friday. Reading the reviews, it just doesn't sound good to me. Couldn't do it.

#1440 2 years ago
Quoted from swillie:

remove your avatar now!! just kidding, but really dude if you like Lagunitas at all the Waldos is as good as it gets, period.

Ha! I like to read the Beer Advocate reviews and the term "dank" came up a little too often. I guess it was meant in a good way, but it just didn't sound good to me Maybe I'll grab some next time if they still have it.

#1449 2 years ago

There's a new Sierra Nevada variety pack out that's really good (no duds for me). Can't remember exactly what it was called, but it's the one with the Kolsch, which I thought was particularly good.

kolsch (resized).PNG

#1454 2 years ago
Quoted from swillie:

Honestly a little underwelmed by this one. It is good, but not alot of barrel flavor and hops are very diminished.

So is "dank" some kind of new beer buzzword?

Scored some more of this. It's simply called "Party Pack" and is in a tan box. So what's that saying about beer after vodka?

#1515 2 years ago

This is just OK. Doesn't really taste like an IPA to me. Missing the hop bite I would expect. Oh well, 6 packs are B1G1F at Publix this week. It was cheap.

#1521 2 years ago
Quoted from way2wyrd:

Ab inbev at it finest. Karbach does have a few good ones tho . Hellfighter among them

Yeah. Funny how different microbrews all come in the same kinda packaging now. Kudos to Heineken though. That is some nasty f'n beer, but they've owned Lagunitas for about a year now and haven't f'd it up as far as I can tell. Truthfully, I think distribution has gotten better.

#1530 2 years ago
Quoted from High_End_Pins:

On vacation enjoying a favorite. Wife and I are celebrating our 20th anniversary today as well.

Congratulations! So few attain that milestone. We as a society don't give it the merit it deserves. And yes, I've been drinking beer....

#1546 2 years ago

6 packs are buy 2 get 1 free at Publix so I decided to give this a try. It’s supposed to be an NEIPA. It feels surprisingly light for 6.7% ABV. I’m tasting a lot of citrus and not so much the hops. It’s good, maybe even very good, but not great. At the regular price, I’ll stick with Lagunitas.

This was not my favorite year for sure. It wasn't bad, but I wasn't really getting an Oktoberfest style vibe when drinking it.

#1618 2 years ago

Found these at Costco. $30 for 24 pounders. Dirt cheap for Sweetwater. I think I should be good for the long weekend

#1620 2 years ago
Quoted from swillie:

Never tried any of these but yeah can't go too wrong at that price. Thanks

They aren't my favorite brewer, but good beers if you like hops. I think the lowest ABV in the pack is 5.3%.

Quoted from gliebig:

Who makes a good berry sour that isn't overly sour? Preferably something you can purchase anywhere and not some limited release that I have to travel to timbukto to get.

My Total Wine just started carrying this. I haven't tried it, but Lagunitas usually doesn't disappoint.

#1822 1 year ago

Ok, I just drank a dank beer. Yuck!!!!! I'll save the rest for the end of the night. I'm pretty sure it achieved what it was going for, just not my thing. It was kinda like licking a skunk's ass..... I think....

#1823 1 year ago
Quoted from gliebig:

I'll give that a go. Thanks.

My Publix just started carrying it too. Let me know how you like it. I'm kinda enjoying a Sweetwater Sampler tonight.

#1826 1 year ago

Avoid these. Dogfish Head has something similar tasting (Sixty One) that is at least better. Nothing special about this to me though.

True story: I didn't have another taste of an alcoholic beverage until I turned 34 after that beer.

My 2 greatest foes in the battle to maintain a healthy weight are craft beer and Blue Diamond almonds. If you haven't developed a taste for either, I say don't start

How was it? I read some reviews and they made it sound kinda like Dogfishhead 61 which is OK and different, but not really my thing.

#1851 1 year ago
Quoted from gliebig:

It was good. I'm just getting into some of the sours, so it's hard for me to give a proper rating. I'll definitely drink the 2nd bottle of it that's in the fridge.

Cool, thanks! My Publix was cleaned out already. If I see it again, I'll grab some.

#1866 1 year ago

Publix has been doing me right. I've gone from Kona B1G1 Free 6 packs to Goose Island B1G1 Free 6 packs. These aren't great, but they aren't terrible either, and they are cheap. I do envy Georgians living near a Costco. 24 packs of Terrapin Hopsecutioner are $25. 24 packs of 16 oz. tallboy Sweetwater are ~$30. Can't beat that!

Quoted from meSz:

If it's anything like their sandwiches it will suck! Primanti's is one of those places that locals don't care for but out of towners love the nostalgia of it!

I can't imagine it tasting good, but I think it has potential as a marinade for chicken.

2 sips and it went down the drain.
Just horrible[quoted image]

Yeah, I don't get the push they are making with this stuff. It doesn't taste good. They have a few different varieties of it too. They screwed up my Costco Sweetwater Value Pack by sticking 6 cans of this shi* in it. Though, I can tolerate it once my taste buds are sufficiently numb.

Victory 6 packs are B1G1F this week at Publix. I've been wanting to try the Sour Monkey. It's pretty good, though I wouldn't mind a bit more sour. I'm surprised it is 9.5% ABV. I can't taste it.

#2234 5 months ago
Quoted from Jackontherocks:

I liked the beer by them called Hop Devil but can’t find anymore out here in AZ. I discovered it when it first came out many years go, is it still available?

They still sell it at my Total Wine. I'm kinda surprised that my Publix has 2 of their 9.5% ABV beers, but not that.

2 months later
#2327 3 months ago

I think Publix has been offering the great B1G1F deals on better beers because of the Covid and lack of demand from restaurants and bars. This week Elysian 6 packs are B1G1F. It packs a punch, but is pretty darn good!

elysian (resized).PNG

#2335 3 months ago
Quoted from Bax1:

I would love to try this one. No one near by has it

Space dust is a good one! Wish we had a Publix here

Yeah, but it is too f'n strong for having more than a couple. I'm liking their Cosmic Haze just fine which is 6%.

In Florida, the Publix Deli has popcorn machines. They make it fresh. Not so in North Carolina. They get the frozen shi*. I like my fresh Publix popcorn.

#2338 3 months ago
Quoted from trilogybeer:

Don't waste your time , the vast majority of sours are horrible . Why spend time trying to enjoy a beer that sucks ? Yeah I know it's trending right now and a lot of people are pretending to enjoy crappy infected beer because that's what is hot right now but screw all that nonsense . If you can find a real Belgian Lambic , I suggest trying that . Otherwise forget about sours almost everything out there is complete garbage .

This is the truth. Sour Monkey is pretty damn good though...

#2355 3 months ago

Cheap beer of the week @Publix. Terrapin 6 packs are B1G1F. This is Luau Krunkles. It's fruity but not too fruity, at least drinking from the can. I like it.

Sweet Liberty has too much pineapple in it. Wasn't a fan of it! Same with this one (to much strawberry)...

Try drinking it straight from the can. The fruity taste shouldn't be as pronounced.

Do any of you guys collect tap handles? I'm downsizing and have no idea what these things are worth. I also have a Guiness Last Call Brass Bell that I think is supposed to be kinda rare.

#2385 66 days ago
Quoted from meSz:

Yeah prices for tap handles are all over the place. A lot of the common ones you'll be lucky to get 5$ for. I have a hundred or so of them and they just sit in a cabinet.
The Guinness Bell, one on Let It Go right now for 45$

I checked a few on ebay completed listings. A Lagunitas 13th Handle that I have went for ~$30, but I'm trying to avoid ebay, though some stuff is better sold there in spite of the haircut.

Quoted from pinballjj:

That's cool! The worst beers for me always taste like butter in a bad way. I think it's diacetyl. Our local micro brewery has this problem, at least to my tastebuds.
