Awesome that you can support your local brewery!


I'll be taking mine over...


...ever hear of Lazy Magnolia Brewery?




They don't know it yet, but they're going out of business...

I was over at Pelican yesterday (not local, but close enough to go there for lunch). They missed Small Brewer by less than a barrel a day. So, they had to settle for Large Brewer/Brewpub and five medals. I picked up a growler of the Bridal Vail seasional and one of their Elemental Fresh Hop ales.

It's nice to see them win again. Darrin, unlike many brewers, hones his styles to perfection and saves inventiveness for seasonals. He also doesn't chase trends.

I think Mark at Golden Valley could do as well, but his management won't fund something like GABF. Bloody shame.

Rhoobabr doesn't show up much anymore, but he goes to Flossmoor a lot I think.
We'll be up that way over Thanksgiving, I think I might stake that place out.

Also, did you see Pliny won an award?

And Leinies, and New Glarus kicked butt as well. Go Wisconsin breweries!

I also thought that Pabst winning a gold medal was pretty funny. Old Stinky took another gold! (Old Mil Light)

The station is pretty far from downtown Chicago, but the nice thing is that you can get on the metra line (train) in the middle of downtown and it will drop you off right at the door. Since Flossmoor station is the old converted train staton for Flossmoor, and its still used.

I know that Rhoobarb likes the place, I have heard him talk about going there. I have not seen him around much either.

I don't even want to think about how many Mickeys 'Big Mouths' we killed in College. Lets just say 'A lot'.

The New Glarus brewery once again is the mid-size brewery of the year. It's so sad that Spotted Cow is their best selling beer. Most of the beers are very good.
