I enjoyed the shipyard stout, Not as impressed with their wheat beers. Their Hopfest, or whatever it was not remotely good, or even very hoppy. I like the fact that I can go there and get a mixed 6'er that includes some very good, hard to find beers from north coast, goose island, and other small breweries.

I just discovered Trader Joe's beer and for the most part I am pleased. I have tried trader joe's vienna lager, simpler times lager, and simpler times pilsner.

the vienna lager was suprisingly good for a $6.00 six pack and has 5.7% abv.

simpler times pilsner was $4.99, not great but not terrible and had 5.5% abv.

simpler times lager was $3.99 certainly not good beer but drinkable and at $6.2% abv it is a winner if you only have $4 and want to get drunk.

The 2008 Vintage Ale was awesome. Similar to Trois Pistoles IIRC.

Yesterday I got a sixer of Black Hart Stout, made by North Coast. Rich and roasty for a dry stout. I liked it.

Trader Jose Dark is surprisingly good. But our favorite from there is the Oranjeboom which comes in the cans.

The simpler times in Tempe, AZ are 2.99 for the lager and pilsner, and also for the red oval classic. Great buy for the friends you dont really like all that much. Also great for friends who wont appreciate the craft beer you have around.

Revvy,

I'm jealous that you can get Stone IPA at TJ's. No distribution on Stone brews here in IL. They do have North Coast Old Rasputin RIS for $7.49 for a 4 pk., which is cheaper than anywhere else I've found, so it's a small consolation.

EVERY vacation out of Colorado requires a search for ANY Trader Joe's within reasonable driving distance. We even chose camping sites in SoCal based on proximity to TJ's. We continue to advocate for ETOH sales at grocery stores to be able to have TJ's come to our state.

Love Trader Joe's!
