That's become my favorite beer. The brewery is dangerously close to me and even they could not keep it in stock until they moved their bottling operations to larger facilities. At $42/case it's an expensive habit...

Another Mexican place in town, too, somewhere near the Boat Haven. I almost bailed on Sirens and took my guest there. Five Mexican restaurants in/near town and the food truck at the market is the best.

hard to find good mex in Seattle. The Tamale lady was not at the market this year either. Some one said she is selling retail, but no one knew where.

Stairway from the top is the stupid way to get there, if that's where you're going. Ask me why I (bad knees and all) know this.

Yeah, the 'next to the surf entrance'. There is a stairway from the top too, just before the main door in the hallway where the mermaid used to live. I didn't know the menu was different though, think I've only had beer there. One of these days I'm going to start a kickstarter fund to return the mermaid.

Had a Mac 'n' Jacks at Sirens yesterday. Have you checked out their lower deck? Outdoor only, from street level. You want seafood? They got seafood. Different menu from upstairs. You probably already know this.

Was not overly impressed beyond the exemplary marketing.  I did not ask them to take my name off it, but I would not endorse.  I'd still probably get the t-shirt though.

Edit: they do have islander beer vending machines though, I might get one of those and just stock it better.

I've been trying a few lawnmower beers this summer and maybe they're not the amazing things that my favorite cooler-weather beers are, but they do hit the spot.

first Ninkasi beer I've liked" and he's
right. I would have skipped it but it
claimed to be a faithful pilsener
plus it was marked down to $5 from 
$10. At $10 it's spendy but at $5
I should have bought out the store.
 


I haven't had that Ninkasi beer; I'll have to look for it.  By the looks of their site, I may have to sport a wool cap and Civil-War-era beard in order to buy it.  I've had the other three at some time.  The Anchor lager is quite good and I've enjoyed most beers from those other two breweries.

New Belgium's Summer Helles...
I think I posted this one before
and it's so far my favorite of the
bunch. The faint praise I have
for it is it reminds me of how
Coors used to taste. That is,
when Coors used to taste
different from other beers in
a good way. The problem with
a good "session" beer like this is I could easily knock back
2 or 3 of these in the time it takes me to savor one good
heavy beer like a Sucks. Which makes these more
dangerous in a pure ABV sense and also in a $$ sense since
it costs the same. But still, I recommend this one a lot. 

 
nice

i've tried this one with a neighbor (new bel sum helles) and i'd rec it

i also enjoyed a florida beer brewed in tampa

Cigar City Brewing

Hotter Than Helles

Availability: Year Round

Why so punny? “Helles” is German for “light colored.” Hotter Than Helles is more than just a (very) silly pun; it perfectly reflects the nature of this beer.

A lager meant to be consumed when it’s truly hotter than helles outside. So there are no peppers or spices in this beer!

  I also grabbed 6 cans of Anchor 
 California Lager. I thought it tasted
just a bit "canny" but I think that's
often just a mental hangup. It's good
and worth having on hand. One of
those beers that everyone will enjoy,
from Bud Light fans to craft beer fans.
 
 
 
 
 Lagunitas DayTime is a "fractional" IPA
that is 4.9%. It smells great, grassy and
citrusy but I thought at the time that it
felt watery. I think I prefer my IPAs to be
heavier and my lighter beers to be not as
hoppy? I dunno. Of course, I tried this
one last fall. I would probably enjoy it
a lot more in July.
