      Those are AZ breweries, right? AZ gets some other good stuff from CA like Lost Abbey and Port Brewing. You should check them out. I think you may also get Bell's. Oberon is a great summer beer.

      Had a 4 pack of Three Philosophers last night. Very tasty, 9ish% abv, so 4 of them will do it for you. kinda pricey, $14 for the 4.

      i wish i could afford to not buy from the big ones, but being a broke job-hunting college grad means i have to make do with natty light until i can afford good craft beer all the time.
      Have you ever thought about brewing your own?

      ditto..do it you'll never look back.

      Recently had a friend send me the Stone Lukcy Basartd ale...

      It was really good I'm a fan of the arrogant bastard series this one was just a blend of all three regular,double, and oaked. I didn't pick up on the oaked bastard on this but I'm sure w/out it the taste would have been different. It was great either way.

      I picked up a sixer of Bristol's Beehive Honey Wheat, and it's great. Wheaty, so it's very light and foamy on the mouthfeel, but doesn't have the hefe banana/clove thing going. The honey contributes a mead-y sweetness. I'm not usually wicked fond of the sweet American wheat ales, but this one was very drinkable on a hot day.

      I swear I was the only one at Dubs In The Valley last year bot drinking the PBR. It ain't bad, I bought a 30pk when I moved and I think I am good for a while.

      i just turned 21 on tuesday and as far as beer is concerned the world is my oyster. iv never been much for drinking just to get drunk so i figured instead of buying a case of bud i would get some decent beers.

      tuesday i got som Huma LupaLicious by Short's Brew. this is a Michigan brew, and since i am fom Michigan all the better. I really enjoyed this beer. It was a little on the bitter side, but it was good just to sip. I dont know the best way to describe it but i did like it and will try more from them.

      today i got some Glissade from Sierra Nevada. Today was hot and humid and this beer was really refreshing. Also it is an easy drinker compared to the Huma Lupalicous

      You're off to a great start and have a great approach to drinking. Sometimes, though, it is nice to let loose and get drunk. I find that lately my body cannot handle mass amounts of booze. I found this out when my buddy brought over a mini keg of Bell's Hopslam at ~10% ABV and a glass that always seemed to get refilled for me, it made for a bad Sunday.


      MI has some awesome breweries like Bells, Founders and Jolly Pumpkin. You should try some Bells Oberon and Bells Two Hearted.

      i have had Oberon, probably pick up some more soon though. I would have hit up some bars with some buddies, but i stayed in my college town for summer, and everyone else went home

      I cant wait to visit my GF, cus her dad is an avid homebrewer and usually makes some really interesting stuff.

      Great Lakes Brewing Co. Nosferatu. it's typically a seasonal fall beer (hence the vampire pic) but the brewpub has a "firkin thursday" event every week, with a special batch of beer. they decided to do some nosferatu last week, and still had some for the tap. got the growler filled, and it's damned good. i'm not big on IPA's, as they're to citrusy and dry, but this is an imperial IPA. i can tolerate it. lol.

      IN the crappy canned beer kick I'm on for spring...tried Boxer Lager. Claims to be the cheapest beer available.
      Goes in ok...but the morning after, not so good. Will be avoiding this beer

      Going to the Twin Cities tomorrow...hope to pick up some sixers of stuff I can't get around here.

      Working my way through the sierra Nevada best of beer camp 12 pack. So far the Weizenbock is outstanding and the DIPA is great. The California common is not bad but nothing spectacular. I'll probably hit the Juniper Black tomorrow.

      I'm really impressed with Peak Organic. I've tried their Nut Brown the other day and it was very, very good. I've tried their Red Ale previously and am looking forward to finding their Maple Oat Ale. They are not that obscure of a company unlike what many of you guys try, but I like it!

      Evolution Craft Brewing Co. PRIMAL Pale Ale.

      Not bad, but I'd go with Dogfish for the same price.

      In honor of the Timbers vs. Flounders match tomorrow I drank my Hopwork's Secession Cascadian Dark Ale tonight. Stupid Sh*ttle.

      This was delicious!

      So many good looking beers in this thread... Being 18 sucks
      anyway the *coolest* (but not my favorite) beer ive had recently is the Sierra Nevada Kellerwies. Too bad I ruined half of mine by leaving them in the fridge too long. Couldnt taste them after that.

      =====
      ===== Mine: 2010 Black Golf TDI
      =====
      ===== His: 2011 Black JSW TDI

      I just got three of these from a friend, I was REALLY impressed with this one, the vanilla is there and not
      over powering. 2x

      Also got some Bell's Oberon, this stuff is fantastic also!
      Wish my fiance didn't find it, I have one bottle left...
      Pic for reference:


      Last and final comment, don't waste your $ on the SA Latitude 48 Deconstruction 12 pack, I was very dissappointed!

      Last Friday I picked up the Sierra Nevada Best of Beer Camp 12 pack. I honestly like every single beer in there and will probably pick up another 12er if they're still available. The Juniper Black is really good and hoppier than I thought and the Weizenbock is great.
