I am no connoisseur but did try this over the weekend, so good, bonus points for ridiculous label.

And this thanks to FM The Canadian, also dangerously great.

Bell's Hopsolution has been released.

The bottling date is like 05/05/2016.

I'm drinking one presently (05/23/16), and it's worth every cent of $14 out-the-door.

I had a Thornbridge beer a couple of times recently that was stellar. Man, so, so good. It was on tap so I'm not 100% on which one it was. I'm fairly sure it was Jaipur, but could have been Kipling. Either way, it was one of these two:

Stella is great!

I feel like it must be some kind of unspoken rule around the bars in this country to hate on what the other guy is drinking. Every time I walk into a bar I've never been to before seems like I have people criticizing me for what I drink and it never occurred to me til recently that maybe I should be offended if they don't like the beer they're not drinking. What do you guys think? certainly punching them out for it would be disproportionate (or would it?), but maybe I should start criticizing their beer too? Not sure. Guess I don't care.

Anyway. Not familiar with any beers I seen around here but Guiness and Sam Adams. Good east coasty beers so far: Milwaukie Best, and Saranac's Legacy IPA.

New Glarus is making Cranbic again. I learned this when I stopped by woodmans a few weekends ago. We bought a case of it.

Probably my favorite beer, currently, and a ridiculous price.

Yeah I love the Oud Bruin, I bought a pack of those on the way to Thundersnows and that was my favorite from the weekend. So I bought two 4-packs of them at Woodman's as well on that last trip, and I think we're almost drank through them already.

Sour ale brewed with black currant, 10% alcohol, from Cologne.

A top 5 beer, easily. It was so damn tasty.

Spent so much time insulting Berlin beer with my cousin from Hamburg that I decided to ask a Berlin bottle shop for a local recommendation. They came back with this, an "old" Berliner weisse. Not as sour or pungent as the other weisses I was getting, not a drop of raspberry syrup in sight, and there was even some sweeter notes in the aftertaste. I guess it's brewed by Marlene in her basement brewery? Something small time like that. A great buy, I haven't insulted Berlin's modern brewers since.

I've had good beer, don't get me wrong. But for 10 bucks at a gas station stella has got this crispiness kind of like canada dry that at least beats most any Lagunitas or Sierra Nevada likely to be in stock. Jaipur sounds like an 80000 muscle car for middle east barons and brokers. How much for a six pack, 25 bucks?

great IPA, ballast point can do no wrong in my book, but this one has a lot more pineapple in the nose than in the actual taste.

their grapefruit sculpin is my favorite IPA out there.

I don't much care for the pineapple, but I really dig the habanero sculpin. Isn't overly hot at all, just flavorful.

What's the PRF thoughts of Brewdog?

Obviously they have douchy promotion but their beers are solid. Kind of the Deftones of craft beer...

Brazil is having it's own explosion of Craft Beer. My favorite brewery is https://www.badenbaden.com.br/

Brewdog featuring in the chiller cabinets of cornershops is great as far as I am concerned. I cannot drink so much Tiskie these days. But I would not necessarily order one as my drink of choice in a decent or decentish pub.

Really like the Punk IPA and 5am Saint, wasn't so into the Hardcore or lager. I'll definitely try whatever they cook up next.

I guess that puts them in the same category as Lagunitas or Madtree or Revolution; hit and miss, but the hits are good enough to trust their instincts.

And their bars in Britain were a safe haven of sorts with solid beer lists of other great breweries. Not Crap for that.

I've decided that sour beer nerds are basically closet wine geeks. You guys spend WAY more than you have to for a tart sparkling beverage to pair with you dinner.
