That gets high ratings. I'll have to look for it and check it out. You know, see what the Kiwi's know about beer...{#Wink}
Hoppy makes you happy I always say. Good old hoppy pops. I had a couple of these from a Winston-Salem brewery last night while listening to a local band led by Roberto Orihuela playing Latin Jazz. He is an incredible percussionist, vibraphonist and band leader. Good stuff; the music and the beer. I joined in on a conga for one song and It felt so good to play.

No but I think I've seen it in Montana. Very little from the Midwest gets to us here. No Great Lakes but Goose Island got picked up by InBev so we get their big sellers, Nothing at all that I can think of that's an "East Coast" brewery. Colorado and California. Nothing exotic from the NW, just Red Hook, Pyramid, Full Sail and Rogue. Oh and Widmer. I guess I shouldn't complain; it wasn't that long ago that Fat Tire was absolutely the only craft beer available here. I just wish the distribution system/laws would allow a retailer to stand out from the competition and stock something more obscure. But if one place gets it, they can all get it, so it punishes competition... the one place that carries the best selection, if they do well with one particular flavor from one brewer, in a month the shitty stores and gas stations will have that *one* on their shelf... which is fine if they're doing their own research, but you know it's the route drivers tipping them off that this is a hot seller, that one's not.

We did get a new store in town just this month, and they're going to up the game for everyone. Plus a brewpub/restaurant is opening but he sucks at marketing and is taking years getting it all going, but both places are offering tastings, growler fills, and carrying more obscure beers/whatever the distributor has that the gas stations don't have.

There are a few brewers down there, Squatters and Wasatch (part of something like "Utah Brewers Coop") are both good. Wasatch makes fun of Utah "Polygamy Porter" (why have just one?), and they do some fruit beers ... you might see their Apricot Hefe, and Devastator Double Bock (If you're going to sin,sin big. With 8% alc/vol and a creamy richness, this brew has developed a serious cult following. Imagine that - a cult following in Utah?!)

Squatters does Hop Rising, a double IPA, and Wee Peat; we get a couple others here but not much. They hired a new design department and their prices went up by about $2 a 6-pack but it looks better than it did before.

It's just made an appearance here too. I tried their Hop Notch (:squint: See other thread. Should that be hyphenated?) and it's a very solid option. They're a good brewery with a stunningly good design department but they only recently got distribution here. I wonder where their infusion of cash came from.

I liked that Oskar's Pinner - a little sweet, not over-hopped.  I  like their Li'l Yellow Pilsner and Dale's Ale too.  Oskar Blues and Sierra Nevada have both opened breweries in the NC mountains recently and they're somehow linked together to provide for transportation among the breweries and nearby Asheville, which is a big tourist destination.  It seems interesting - I'll have to get out there soon.  I think they both want to increase their East Coast distribution without the shipping costs making the beer too expensive. Anyhow, I had some of this yesterday, pretty tasty, not extraordinary but good, especially since I don't often like "summer" beers.  You may want to try out this one as a "lawn-mower" beer if you can get it where you are - it's from Utah.

It's Lawnmower Beer season, almost, so I wish I could remember which ones I actually liked and which ones I don't want to revisit. Because I just got some Oskar Blues Pinner and it's very meh. Lagunitas' Day Time is too.

I think the premise of a session beer just lends itself to non-IPAs. In fact the Oskar Blues Session IPA is called "Pinner," a reference to a weak, skunky Marihuana Cigaretto. Because it's weak and smells like weed.

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.

I picked up some Ninkasi Pravda in
Montana this weekend and shared
one with Lazy8. He says "this is the
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 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.
 
 
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.
