Costco Beer?
 
Hey what do y'all think of this?

Costco beer? Anybody try it? I wonder who their contract brewer is?

For much of the country, it's Gordon Biersch. I've had their variety pack before. Nothing amazing, but very decent.

That is worse that the Coke and Pepsi taste test. Why do they always do this? “handcrafted” beers.. Sorry thinking of a different thread.

PBR number 2, got to love that. Cheer

I've had their pale ale and each time I get diacetyl, not a lot but enough to not ever have it again

It's decent. If you're having a party and want to get some empty bottles quickly without paying very much it's a good buy.

Ah yep, Gordon Biersch - that makes sense. I might grab a case next time I'm at Costco. I heard GB brews Trader Joe's beer too.

So they're pop top? I'd be willing to give them a shot if that's the case :)

I've had it and thought it was pretty good for the price. Thought the pale and wit beer were the best. And yeah they're pry offs

They are not too bad considering its about 20 bucks for a case.
They are pop top, so why not spend $20 on a case of bottles WITH BEER than $17 on empty bottles?
Especially if you are going to have a party and have other people empty them for you.

"Simpler Times"? - that's the cheapest beer I've ever seen.
