Been a beerlover well before I reached legal age. Now doing homebrewing and attending local classes on beer judging. Mainly this is for making me a better homebrewer, but it would als be cool to get paid for judging beers:)
Youngs Double Chocolate Stout, Rocky Mountain Brewery Oak Aged IPA (local brewpub), Big Sky 's Moosedrool and Scape Goat are good lower cost ones.
Congrats South Carolina! The State House just approved the so called "Pint Bill" that will allow breweries to sell 48 ounces of beer to a person every 24 hours. No more tiny samples if you're wanting a pint - as long as the Governor signs the bill.
