I always take my time when deciding which beer to purchase. I am always looking for somethin I have not tried to see if its worth trying to duplicate. Or I just like to try the same style by different breweries to learn style differences. All of which I find very important as a homebrewer. I dont purchase very often due to stocked shelves but sometimes its worth going to the store. I have also found that alot of the bugger stores are carying non traditional brews which is a great sign of the overall feeling that the mass produced beers are just not that good. The on;y thing that sucks is the 6-9 dollars for a six pack, ouch!.
