    I'm a sucker for these, it's usually in the beer fridge as a "regular"



    I have found that I love liquor that has been bourbon barrel aged, like this cab. It's delicious.

    My train of thought derailed. There were no survivors.

    Bourbon barrel aged wine has just seemed like a gross combination to me, but maybe I'll have to give it a try sometime.

    Definitely take a leap. It gives it a kick, but not in a bad way. Not sure how to describe it, but it works, at least for me.

    Tried this again somewhat recently and it was a much better beer than I remember it being. It was on Tap at a bar near the Sprint Center when Iron Maiden played there earlier this month. Damn good ESB.

    The wife and I are going to Montreal, Vermont, NH and Maine here in a few weeks. Will post my discoveries from Hill Farmstead, The Alchemist and Maine Beer Company plus others I might find in this rich brewing region.

    I tried these beers this week. The Purple Train is a sour beer, but not too sour, all in all, it's ok as I'm not a fan of sour beers. The Rahr pale ale was really a nice beer.

    Do any of you fellow, um, Wheaters(?), track your beers using Untapped?

    That pale from Rahr is pretty good every day drinking beer. You in Texas, or are they shipping it out of state now?

  12. #12

    They're shipping to Kansas now, found it at Justin's Liquor on Shawnee Mission Pkwy. I visited the brewery the last time I was down in Ft. Worth. It's fairly small and not anything that catches your eye, but a good showing of people and food trucks keeps it packed.

    We visited it when we lived down there. Have you been to Collective Brewing Project? Best brewery in the DFW area IMHO.

    I'll have to look around for the Rahr, they have some pretty darn good bombers as well.

    I was only down there visiting friends and only had time to hit one brewery. I'll have to remember CBP when I'm down there next time, thanks for the suggestion!

    If you have time look for Foam, Fiddlehead and Lawson's Finest Liquids in VT. Bissell Brothers and Allagash are in Portland, ME.

    It doesn't look like you're going far enough south to deal with Massholes, but if you find yourself down that way... obviously Tree House, Trillium, and Night Shift

    This is another beer that s really good. Along the lines of a sour, but called a tart German wheat beer. Tasty.

    I've had the raspberry, but not blueberry.

    Lately I've been into Urban Chestnut's Schnickelfritz (Bavarian wheat) and Ballast Point's Sculpin IPA.

    Jester King is the tits, the vag, and the sweet sweet booty. I recommend picking up a bottle of El Cedro if you ever come across it.

    Lived in Texas (DFW) nearly 7 years, and Jester King is indeed all of that. Been to their brewery several times.

    Yeah, samesies. I'm in DFW for the Summer, but Austin is home. I've been out to JK a few times myself.

    I really like Tallgrass as a brewery. They make some fantastic beers.

    Premiere destination for sours maybe in the country. Their sherry barrel aged atrial rubicite I had a couple years ago is in my top 5 beers I've ever had.

    I don't drink often; typically only a few times a year, usually only holidays or special occasions. (Of course after a particularly lousy day at work, it's amazing how 8 o'clock can look pretty "special"). Last time I had a drink, my sister bought some of this stuff.... Not your fathers root beer. Supposed to taste like A&W root beer. It doesn't. I like beer. I like root beer. But this combo doesn't work, IMO.

    I'd post my standard Busch Light Olan Mills pic but I can't figure out how. I think maybe my adblocker is messing with the toolbar in 'advanced reply'.

    Not good. We bought a six pack intending to make floats with it, that was last year sometime, there are still 3 in my beer fridge.

    Not trying to be a dick, but this is one of the worst beers I've had. I'm sure it's a matter of personal preference. I was served it by accident and decided to try it. Way too sweet and fruity for my taste. Calling it jam is very fitting because that's what it tastes like.

    Yeah, it's pretty nasty. She also had some beer/lemonade by the same company. I didn't try it.

    Dale's Pale Ale has been my go to for most of the summer. There's a great brewpub here called Pinthouse Pizza where I had a flight of random beers last weekend. I love that Austin has a ton of local breweries who basically just cater to Austin and many of them are really good.

    Took down a couple more from Crooked Stave tonight. If you dig sours, Crooked Stave is up there nearly on Jester Kings level.

    Ha. Interesting, as I am usually pretty sensitive to sweetness. Too sweet and I usually don't like it. As noted, each to their own, but I did find this tasty. Not something I could drink one after another, but good for one or two.

    I had never had a gin gimlet before, and I have a friend who makes the most kickass gin gimlets ever, so now I stop by her place about 5 times a week and drink gin and now I'm going to be an alcoholic.

    I found a few more Rahr and Sons beers at a KC liquor store. Tonight I'm enjoying the Summertime Wheat! I really want to try Boulevard's new Tough Kitty Milk Stout, but it's not in stores yet. May head down to the tasting room tomorrow night to get it.

    I don't drink much anymore, but this is my favorite summertime beer for when I'm in the mood for a cold one.

    Happy National IPA Day everyone!

    Going to have a nice mix of local beer with Torn Label doing a special dry-hopped batch of Alpha today and then some fresh beer mail consisting of Tree House Doppelganger, Green, and Eureka.

    Cheers!

    I'm contemplating what I'll pick up after work for NIPA day. Probably this one, it's IMHO the best IPA available at the liquor stores in Wichita.



    Though I might get ambitious and run down to Central Standard Brewing and snag one of theirs in a crowler.
