Yeah I'm actually in Detroit, but was in Chicago 2 weeks ago and checked a Binny's. No luck.

Dirty25, if you can get your hands on a bottle or 2, I'd be happy to set up a trade with you for some...

Anchor Christmas Ale 2010

Hey All!

I want to do a 5 Year Vertical tasting of Anchor Christmas Ales, but last year, I inadvertently drank my last 2010 instead of one of the 2009s I had, so I am without a 2010 example. I...

I can't believe how quickly they sold. I logged in right at 1, and Groups A and B were already sold out. Snagged some of the Group C tickets though, I'm stoked.

I agree with the fact that you're going to have to age the Barleywine for AT LEAST a few months before it's any good. I'd say you could try it at 3, but you probably won't like the outcome until...

For the sake of simplicity, I say "Bell's Two-Hearted", but in actuality, there is no way to specify a "beer to end all beers". What mood am I in? What season is it? What am I eating? Bottle or...

No it's not. I work in Minnesota, and I went to a few Twin's games. When confronted with a lack of decent beer selection, I reluctantly tried this, expecting the worst. It was quite tasty.

I can agree with rayg on one thing, I don't like American Light Lagers, or most American Lagers (namely BMC) for that matter.

That's where my agreement ends.

To say, though, that homebrewers...

Yeah, start selling your bone marrow, start babysitting, or something, because that $30/month budget has got to go. I probably do twice that, and I usually don't drink much, if anything, during the...

I'm kidding, at this point, I'll get a Scotch or some wine. Like you, I'll take a domestic light beer if offered, so as not to offend, but if I'm gonna pay for it, I want to enjoy...

Guinness lived a very short life in my beer drinking career. At first, back when my favorite beer was Labatt Blue, Guinness was a RARE undertaking, because it was too heavy for me. Then as I became...

I have to disagree with you here. At what point can we define a basis for comparison. By this logic, you couldn't say a McDonald's Hamburger is of poorer quality than a fine crafted burger at a...

Hitachino Nest White Ale, which is a bit ironic, because it was only a sip out of a coworkers glass, and I don't even care for the beer anymore. For some reason, that sip set off in my mind the...

Chicago, as stated, you definitely have to hit up Revolution Brewery and/or Piece. Both are very different in atmospheres, but both make good beer and good food. I've never been to Two Brother's,...

I say, way to go Sam Adams!

As far as size of their production, in my opinion this has nothing to do with whether or not I consider them a craft beer or not. If SA did become the same size as any...
