Quoted from Deaconblooze:

How often do you have to clean the lines? Difficulty?
I've been debating whether to get a kegerator or not for a loooong time..

Cleaning the lines is not hard at all. Takes a little time but again it's not hard!

Whether or not to buy a system, depends on how much you drink and what beers you drink! Domestic beers typically last 30-45 days. A lot of beers you can get in a sixth barrel (2.2 cases of beer) which is nice! When you get into the beers that are not available in a sixth you need to make sure you can drink 4-7.5 cases of beer within that 30-45 day window or you will be wasting beer!

If you decide to go with a system look in Craigslist as they're often up for sale as a lot of people buy them only to find out that they don't use them often enough. I was already to buy a commercial unit for 1200$ but the guy I was purchasing from sold me on a used larger unit (3 taps) for 500$. He had taken the unit in on trade as the person upgraded their business with a walk in unit. For 500$ the guy cleaned the unit, added all new lines, included the couplers and taps. When I redid my bar I replaced the 3 taps with a 6 tap tower. Its great to be able to have a party and put 6 different beers on tap!!!

One thing to consider when purchasing a system is their is additional cost for things like couplers, tanks, spouts etc. For example different companies use different couplers. Last time I checked there were 7 different couplers. One beer that comes to mind is Guinness. To have Guinness on tap you need a special coupler, tap/spout and it takes Co2/nitro mix. If you're someone that just drinks domestic then you just need a US Sankey!

If you have any questions or concerns feel free to PM me. Always willing to help out!

Just put Weihenstephaner Vitus on tap. If you ever get a chance to have this on tap it's well worth it. Very good tasting beer with an even better after taste. Hard to believe it has a 7.7% ABV

Quoted from Jackontherocks:

Have not tried this beer yet but have bottle in fridge. Iron Maiden can version coming to states.

JotR, it's a very weak Ale. Not bad but not a lot of flavor! The can states on it "Charged with Flavor" so I wonder if the cans will have the "widget" in it that disperses nitro upon opening the can. If this is the case it would make it a creamier ale and may provide the much more needed flavor.

Here's a beer I had that has a lot of flavor and is very smooth to drink. . . .

#643 4 years ago
Quoted from way2wyrd:

I see you did black friday.
Did you get any of the Coffee, Barleywine or Vanilla?
Im really looking for a Prop but they were only released in chicago
I also agree on Iron maiden. It made me want to run to the hills.

Actually no Black Friday. Have someone in the business that gave me some.
I haven't tried the others as of yet. I always liked the Stout so I get it every year! It reminds me of the Thomas Hardy!

#654 4 years ago
Quoted from Jackontherocks:

How is the cigar City beer, have not been able to find them out here yet.

I have had only their Maduro which is the Brown Ale and it's not bad at all. Good tasting brown ale at 5.5%

#659 4 years ago
Quoted from Jackontherocks:

I loved the Goose before Budweiser bought them out.

If it's any consolation AB ruined Rolling Rock as well. Rolling Rock was never a great beer but it wasn't bad. Once AB bought them something changed! I was hoping when InBev bought out AB this would change as InBev has some great beers but nothing as of yet!

Anyone else pick up some Parabola this week? Like a beautiful bourbon macaroon. I swear, every drink tastes different than the previous.

I had a 1/6th barrel of a 2012 Parabola. Looking into getting another!

Quoted from someoneelse:

I'm kinda surprised that you guys have been posting about beer for years in this thread and no one has even mentioned the undoubtedly best beer in the world! http://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/252/731/
The brewery ist just 10 min. driving distance from my place...

I mentioned this beer on another thread as I purchased a half barrel (50l) of this last year for a party I had. It's a great beer but here in the States it's not the easiest of beers to buy as the place that imports forces Wholesalers to purchase a minimum amount of barrels. I had a representative from the Brewery try to help to no avail. I wound up getting the barrel from another Wholesaler 2 hours from me that had one in stock. For the best rated beer in the world it shouldn't be so hard to get!

Quoted from way2wyrd:

Will trade for bcbs barley wine

PM me with what you have and an offer and see if we can work something out! I actually am not a fan of the Barley. The guy offered it up to me so I took it!

Quoted from Jackontherocks:

I still have an original bottle before Budweisre A Busch bought them out. Goose use to be one of my favorites micro breweries but feel the taste is not the same since buy out.

I have a bottle of the BCBS for the years 2007-2015. Have a gentleman that might sell me a 2006!

A lot of people say the same about Rolling Rock! After AB bought RR and moved production to NJ people complained the taste was different! Now the old Rolling Rock plant produces beers like Guinness Blonde, Iron City, Southampton brands and Stoney's

Just completed a vertical of Thomas Hardy's Ale! Now have at least one bottle from every year it was produced back to 1968! If you're not familiar with this beer it's one of the few beers that continues to mature up to 25 years (almost like a wine)!

When am i flying up ?

June/July is the plan to start opening them up! Also have a small vertical of Goose Island Bourbon County Barrel Stout (06-15) but my understanding is this beer only matures for up to 5 years. Also have read that it goes sour.

#951 2 years ago
Quoted from Jackontherocks:

Here are a few that have been with me awhile waiting to open.

I have few verticals of some of the ones you have:
JW Lees: 1996 to 2015
Goose Island BCBS: 2006 - 2015
Old Stock Ale: 2012 - 2016
Also have Samuel Smith Stingo: 2009 - 2014

Bad thing about Goose Island is, from what I have read, it doesn't last. It supposedly has a shelf life of only 5 years but I have read that people say after 2-3 years its bad! We shall see!

Quoted from Leakyfaucet:

After almost 30 hours of hard labor the past 2 days I think I'll down a few of these! It's not Shiner Bock, but it's cold and in my fridge. If it's not Texas beer, I try not to drink it.

Well its technically a Missouri beer as it's Brewed by Anheuser-Busch (even more technical it's a Belgium beer as AB is owned by InBev) but they subcontract it to a brewery in Houston! Remember when beer use to be easy??

#1033 2 years ago
Quoted from 30FathomDave:

I picked this up last night. Multi-tap system coming soon!

Scour the internet (places like Craigslist, Letgo etc) for a used tower. You can get a 6 tap tower for a lot cheaper than a new 2 tap tower! 6 taps is a bit overkill for the home but I use all 6 for a few parties I have during the course of the year! Nice to be able to put a selection on and with sixth barrels it allows you not to have too much beer for bigger parties!

#1103 1 year ago
Quoted from Frippertron:

What do you guys think of temperature? Most people in the U.S. throw all their beer in the fridge no matter what it is. Try big imperial stouts, barleywine, old ale, and Belgian strong ales closer to room temperature. Most beers that are lower in alcohol or lighter in color taste better colder. Pilsner, pale ales, lower abv ipas, even Belgian Tripels are nice on the colder side, but never ice cold. Serving beer ice cold numbs your taste buds, so if you have an awesome Belgian beer you have been waiting to try, you might as well let it warm up for an hour or so or it's a waste. If you want a thirst quencher, there are plenty of good beers for that too, like Franziskaner Hefe.

Agree, a lot of beers are better around room temperature. What i have been doing is chilling a glass and then pouring the beer, that is room temperature, into the chilled glass.

#1305 1 year ago
Quoted from trilogybeer:

How was this ? Came accross stingo for the first time tonight , not from 2014 but maybe I should pick some up ? Got some Samuel Smith , but I got a four pack of one of my fovorites from them .

I always liked the Stingo. Have, well had, 4 bottles of each year going back to 2009. Problem is....aging them is a hit or miss. The 2014 I had last night was sour. First one out of the 4 I had from 2014.

If you go to buy a Stingo stay away from the 2013. The had to have a bacteria issue or something as every bottle I had from that year tasted bad!

In my opinion you can’t go wrong with Sam Smith. They make some good beers!

#1309 1 year ago
Quoted from trilogybeer:

Cool thanks ! I'll pick some up , I found a new place near me that has an awesome selection of great beers .

Let me know if you get a 2016 bottle. Unfortunately the 2016 bottles didn’t make it to PA this year!!!

You’ll want to look on the back label and it will show you Brewed in 20XX

Quoted from trilogybeer:

Checked today , only 2015 on the shelves . I'll keep checking , maybe the 2016 will make it to the shelves once the 2015 is gone . I did pick up a bottle of the 2015 .

Let me know what you think! Starting with the 2015 bottles they changed the labels as the original labels looked a lot like their Taddy Porter. I will also say that the 2015 appears to be darker in color than in the past!

The Bruery makes some great beers!

Quoted from AAAV8R:

Good thing the bottle says "CONTAINS ALCOHOL" or someone drinking it may never have figured it out.

well have to realize we live in the "it's not my fault" era so if they dont put that on there and someone drinks too much, goes out and drives large machinery and kills someone they cant say "well the Bruery should've told me there was alcohol in their beer" (but not really)

Latest Bruery Haul

The Bruery makes some exceptional beers. Haven't ventured into their Sours yet (not a big sours fan) but with their beers being so good I may have to give them a whirl!

So far my 3 fav US brewery's are Jackie O's, The Bruery and Firestone Walker

I am a huge fan of Samuel Smith (Nut Brown Ale, Oatmeal Stout, Taddy Porter and Stingo) and, up till now, it's never been available in anything other than bottles. Just recently they started to ship barrels to the State in very limited quantities so I snagged up a barrel of the Nut Brown. Apparently Winter Welcome is next!

Quoted from ultimategameroom:

That is great to hear! I love all their beers especially the nut brown.

Yeah took me by suprise. I was able to get the last barrel the wholesaler had. The Nut Brown actually came to the States in late April and was "Draught Release No. 002". Not sure what No. 001 was but Winter Welcome will be No. 003 and released in late August.

Quoted from ultimategameroom:

At 13.2 gallons I guess it’s a little smaller than the American half kegs.

Correct, it's a 50L so just a little smaller than a half

Quoted from ultimategameroom:

What did you pay less the keg deposit?

I believe it was 220$

Quoted from ultimategameroom:

What style tap does it take?

Type “A” (German Slider) Coupler

Quoted from ultimategameroom:

140 12oz beers for $220 seems very fair! Especially for Sammy Smiths!
I stopped buying kegs due To : less guests coming over and guests who prefer different styles.

I tell everyone to reconsider a draft system as most don't consume enough beer to justify it. I on the other hand have/had a minimum of two events every year where I went through 7-12 barrels of beer. Also, today a lot of breweries make sixtels (2.2 case) so you can have barrel beer and drink it before it goes bad. Which leads to your next question.........

Quoted from ultimategameroom:

Most people couldn’t tell but after two weeks I could taste a slight flavor change even though I had a CO2 tank and the pressure was correct. Do you have similar issues or do you and your guests go thru barrels fast enough that it isn’t an issue?

MOST people will never tell after two weeks as most beers aren't really affected until 3-4 weeks or longer. Of course this all depends on style of beer you're serving. I've had some "aged" beers on tap for 6 weeks and due to the low carbonation they stayed pretty much in tact.

Quoted from Beechwood:

I own a liquor store with over 150 craft beers. I like beer.
PS. Founders KBS hits this Friday if anyone wants some

KBS is good but I like the CBS a lot more!

You ever get the Goose Island BCBS Rare in? Always wanted one but where I lived it was such a small GI market we never got it!

#1768 5 months ago
Quoted from Beechwood:

I was not terribly impressed with the last CBS release. We have had the rare BCBS variants in the past but it is very limited quantities.

Not speaking of the variants, they release a BCBS RARE that comes in a wooden box.

Agree with you on the variants. Not impressed at all. Still thing the regular BCBS is very good and cheaper than any of the variants!

GIBCBSRare (resized).JPG

Just a word of caution .... watch storing these longer than 5 years. It's been noted that the Bourbon County beers start going bad after 5 years....which stinks as I have a bottle of the regular BCBS going back to 2007

#1774 5 months ago
Quoted from way2wyrd:

Oh i drank that one lol . I havent seen any of this years. I guess i posted the prop. Might have an extra have to check. Ive found the pre 2010 turn to soy but the 14 15 16 are still great

Yeah the golden rule is 5 years .... appreciate you looking into an extra. Let me know!

Quoted from JayDee:

Very nice! I can’t wait to get my hands on some of those again. So tasty but so hard to get unless you want to spend a lot of money! Any Belgians on here willing to get on the waiting list for me?

Waiting list? My daughter walked into a Belgium establishment and just bought it for me.

#1790 5 months ago
Quoted from JayDee:

That’s awesome! I’ll have to seek out if there’s a place like that around Chicago. Unless they changed something, you can only buy the beer from the monastery itself as they don’t distribute anywhere. And there’s a waiting list to even purchase it, with a case (24 bottle) limit per group at their appointment time. Apparently the wait is months. Plus the monastery only brews enough to cover the costs to keep the place running and nothing more for profit. So once their run is out, it’s out for the year. Your Belgian establishment must have a connection to keep them stocked. Cheers!!

To clarify ..... my daughter was in Belgium and just went into an establishment and they had it!

But, a few years ago they actually sold Westvleteren XII here in the States in a package deal. What happened is the Brewery had a fire so in order to raise funds to rebuild the monks allowed it to be sold in the States to raise funds.

There were reports in late 2017 that the beer was coming back to the States but I never heard anything further. I sent the importer an email today to see if this ever happened!

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!
