Default Finally found a place to buy USA beers!

After a lot of looking, I've found a site that I can buy US beers here in NZ! At last I can taste some of the beers that get talked about here and other places. New Belgium, Dogfish Head, Sierra Nevada, Samuel Adams!
Looks like the credit card is about to take a pounding! Not just US beers either though, have a look :: Welcome to The Beer Store :: NZ's Online Beer Source ::, I'd love any recommendations!

Not USA, but UK... if you've not had the Wychwood Hobgoblin, give that a shot. Also any of the Bath Ales are nice.

As for the Dogfish, they only carry one type according to the website... the 90 min. IPA. Might as well give it a try to say you've tried it. I'm not a huge fan... many of there beers are unbalanced, overly hoppy to me. That's too bad since I live 3 miles from their main brewery.

You gotta try the Stone Ruination.

You may want to ease into it after the SNPA.

I can't get a quarter of those beers in my own state! Stupid state.

Deschutes Black Butte Porter

For the Sierra Nevada, I'd go for the Celebration Ale over the Pale Ale. Great hop flavor and aroma.

And it sounds dumb, but it might be fun to throw in one bottle of cheap American lager, just to see what the typical American beer drinker consumes. Like a Pabst Blue Ribbon, served very cold.

Cheers for the posts guys! Really the only US beers available here easily are MGD and Bud..... and they're somewhat..... well, insipid. I'm stoked with the choices they've got. I'll definitely have to go through all of your suggestions and check them out!
