I bought some commercial beers!!!
So I havent really bought much commercial beers since I started brewing my own in September. I have a Bass clone that will be bottled soon and I thought I'd buy a commercial one and see how they compare in taste. I bought yesterday for $10.49 for a 6 pack (+ deposit) and had it delivered (online supermarket delivers to my house). Today I went to a beer distributor and guess what 12 pack of Bass is $12.99. Sure makes sense to buy it from there and not supermarket.
So while I was in this store I decided to buy some new beers I never tried. Here is what I got:
Weihenstephaner 16oz - hefe - $2.69
Rogue Santas Private Reserve Ale 22oz - $5.99
Youngs Double Chocolate Stout 16oz - $3.89
At the cashier they had a cart full of 12oz beers which were all labeled at 50 cents each so I picked up 2:
Brooklyn Summer Ale
He'brew Genesis Ale
The store has a large selection of beers, I saw so many Belgian stuff - Chimays, lambics which I will try next time. One thing I noticed is that Budweiser has a new kind of swing top bottle. It looks to be more then a litre bottle and I believe its for some kind of promotion.
Old school or the new, doesnt mean a thing if your heart's not true!
