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!
not much beer drinking of late. Hubby's been ill....need to catch up with the Pale Ale tasting
Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, festive Solstice, Joyous Kwanza, and blissful "enter your winter-time holiday here" to all and hopefully you'll be able to enjoy the brewed malty/hoppy beverage of your choice with loved ones surrounding you!!!
