Three Floyd's or bust. That's an absolute requirement if you come here seeking good beer. Every beer they serve is an impressive feat. They're that good.

I'm back in Mississippi, just now checking back on this thread, and did not go to Binny's. It's at the top of my list when I come back to Chicago, though.

I did, however, manage to score the last bomber of 3 Floyds Imperial IPA at Jewel Osco last night. I brought it home and had it tonight with dinner and absolutely loved it. I see what you guys are saying. It's on the same level as Stone Ruination.

All in all, over the past weekend, I had around 10 new beers that I've never tried before. Not a bad haul. I definitely returned to the south with the inspiration for a few new batches of homebrew.

Dreadnaught or Artic Panzer wolf?

And ruination is not on either of their levels....

Arctic Panzer Wolf. I'm already planning another trip up there so I can visit 3 Floyds.

I'd vote Dreadnaught. To me, it has better balance and is a lot more drinkable. I'm done after one panzer, but I can drink Dreadnaught all night (assuming I don't have to get up early).

Three Floyds' bomber prices are insane. $12 for a bomber of IPA ?

No thanks.

Agreed, their prices are out of whack. Huge demand + small production = ridiculous prices. I enjoy tasting occasionally, but rarely purchase anything to go. Dreadnaught is insanely simple to brew though.

Their six pack prices are more reasonable. I buy Zombie dust, Alpha King and Gumballhead occasionally. $12/6

I've never seen Dreadnaught in anything but a bomber.

I haven't tried Pipeworks but it sure is a cool label!

I only paid $8.99 for my bomber of Panzer. I wince at paying that much but it's much better than the $12 mentioned above.
