After moving back to Illinois from Asheville, NC last week, I have gotten all settled in and went out to find some good beer today. Last week I found Fat Tire at Wal-Mart. I went to the Liquor Store, since there are no beers stores here and they did have a decent selection of Sierra Nevada, Rouge, Flying Dog, Avery, Left Hand, and Bells. They do have a good Belgium section.

It gets bad tho, the closest homebrew store over an hour away and I have not heard good things about it. I guess I could go through Northern Brewer but I am not going to be home during the days for the delivery. I will find a way to make it work.

Drinking - Craft Brews
Primary - Surly Bender (clone)

Sounds like somebody needs to start a yeast bank and ordering in bulk.

Fat Tire at WalMart + all of those micros and imports at a nearby liquor store...WTF are you complaining about?!?! The WalMart here sells BMC and Shiner (bleck!) products nearly exclusively. I'm not a huge New Belgium fan, but I'd be thrilled to see one of their brews for sale at a mega mart here. There's a little store in town that very occasionally has a limited supply of Rogue or Paulaner beers. There is NO liquor store with a good selection within 150 miles.

I've NEVER lived in a place with local homebrew store worth using. Mail order works very well. None of my orders have ever required a signature.

That's the problem with moving away from Asheville Looks like you don't have it that bad, but you got used to Asheville: which has an unusual number of breweries and beer selection given its size. Wish Atlanta had the same number of breweries
On Tap: Barleywine, Coffee Oatmeal Imperial Stout (big big beer)
Conditioning:Baltic Porter
Fermenting: Double Simcoe IPA
On the Bench: Racer 5 IPA

Sorry, but SC is not even close to beer Hell. Beer Purgatory maybe, but beer Hell is in Provo, Utah.

I miss Bells so much! We can't get it here in Oregon, although I think they could easily compete with many of the breweries here. Go drink some Oberon/Two Hearted and you'll feel better. Welcome to the Midwest!

not to be argumentative but move to mississippi and come back and talk to me....

archaic nothing over 5% for sale beer wise, no LHBS to be found and a state legislature FULL of idiots that won't allow a higher alcohol content (and/or breweries to distribute by default) yet receive checks from budweiser.....rent seeking basturds.

rant over, gator

From the title I though you moved here, but Ed is right, Utah County is hell.
Everything is better with a beer.
