I'm not sure how this slipped past me, but the ABV cap on beer in WV was raised from 6% to 12% on July 1!
As soon as I found out I went to Slight Indulgence in Morgantown and bought some Harpoon IIPA, Samuel Smith's Imperial Stout, Great Lakes Oktoberfest and Elliot Ness, Ayinger Celabrator and Rochefort 8 and 10.
I drank the IIPA and Elliot Ness last night. I'm not a huge fan of super hoppy beers but I liked the IIPA a lot, so I may yet become one. I think I'll try the Imperial Stout tonight (awesome!). I may let the Rochefort age in my basement for a while before drinking. Any thoughts on this?
Anyway, I'm really glad I can get a wider variety of beers locally, even if the prices are somewhat steeper than what I've seen in other states. Anyone know of another shop in WV where I can pick up some good beers?
