Default Organic Beer

Have your tried any?

I went to a grocery store that has the best beer selection for where I live and I noticed a decent amount of organic beer selections.
Are there any types that you guys have tried and really like, or any that you would stay away from. Sorry I can't remember any of the types I am in Northern Arizona.

I tried Stone Mill Pale Ale recently, just to try it. I was not impressed, seems like the gimmick is that is it organic and that's about it. To each his own I guess.

I think New Belgium's Mothership Wit is supposed to be organic. It is a decent beer, but I don't know that the "organic" has much to do with it.

There are several locals that are 100% organic, Eel River, Roots, Hop Works, as well as breweries that make one or more organics. None that I know of shipping outside the area. As Matt says, organic has nothing to do with the flavor or quality of the beer. One of the larger problems for organic brewing is the small number of organic hop growers.

Made by Anheiser Busch read the bottle, thats why its a gimmick.

My fav if Butte Creek Brewing they are out of Northern Cal I think they make some pretty good beers that are USDA organic. They won a gold at the Great American Beer Festival a couple years back. They also have very cool labels.

I've switched to using 100% organic ingredients... it's exactly like the conventional stuff, but I like supporting organic growers. It's better for the earth, and I don't have to drink pesticide. Win-win.
