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!
So, the bill that the legislature in Florida is submitting for a vote allows the sale of 64 ounce growlers by breweries. The big caveat is that the breweries have to sell the beer to a distributor then buy it back from the distributor to sell in their taproom. Sounds like a dumb way to do things to me.
