fretwalkerFor a change, I have a little (very little) advance notice on a trip... this is very rare! I'm going to be in Beloit, WI, Monday morning, Sept 9. Can anyone recommend a good beer store? I'm looking mainly for Central Waters' Brewers Reserve and Tyranena... moreFor a change, I have a little (very little) advance notice on a trip... this is very rare! I'm going to be in Beloit, WI, Monday morning, Sept 9. Can anyone recommend a good beer store? I'm looking mainly for Central Waters' Brewers Reserve and Tyranena's Brewers Gone Wild series. Also, a good brewpub for lunch! Thanks for your help!
Grew up on local Cincinnati beers; Little Kings Cream Ale was the fuel of my misspent youth. Joined the USAF in 1970... when I finally got enough stripes on my sleeve to join the NCO Club, I discovered Guinness, and stayed comfortably there for the next 35 years, or so.
Fast-forward to spring 2007, attended a RV show/beer tasting... might have been a dozen beers to sample, mostly unremarkable ersatz-craft from the Big 3, but two that grabbed my attention and ushered me into the age of craft beer! I just happen to be drinking one of them right now, as I type this - Christian Moerlein OTR.
Funny, I seem to have lost my taste for Guinness!
Mercy sakes, there's 2500 breweries in the USA; I don't have room to list my faves.
However, there are some assumptions that may be reasonably made about what I won't drink!
This is the place to warn people of the truly bona fide, thoroughly vile alcoholic malt beverages out there. From Colt 45 to Camo Ice, from Joose to Tilt - if it's available in a tall can or 40 oz, it goes in here.
This group is designed to share notes about beer, as well as tasting notes and suggestions and get to know beer lovers from all over the globe. Here's the idea: We have themed tasting. In advance, if possible, we will pick a Style of Beer we're going to taste, then we trade tasting notes. The tasting period will be over two weeks so we get an outpouring of related tasting notes, which will spur deep discussions.... Check the Discussion area for what the tasting will be.
