Once Old Speckled Hen showed up in cans around here, I've refused to get a bottle since. Can or draft only. If only I could find the Belhaven...

Yeah Epic makes some excellent beers. I haven't seen that one here, but I'll keep on the lookout for it.

I can (haha).... I'm tapped 'til next payday, but I'll gladly do a trade after that. There's plenty of things in VA that we can't get here. And if you're into English/British beers, we get a great selection here. Some, like the Morocco Ale are new to me.

Epic's name says it all. Everything I've tried from them is gold. Hopulent is a stellar IPA, as is their Imperial IPA. The Imperial Red is very good too. They have a golden strong and a wine barrel aged version that I'm looking forward to trying. Great brewery, I'm glad we get them here.


In honor of the hometown team, I'm finishing the night with a hometown favorite.....

Thanks to the Vikes stellar performance this evening, the Bears are in first place and looking good. And this beer is looking nice next to a pipe full of stinky English tobacco.

I've always had good experiences with Bellhaven, even in the clear bottles. Never had a skunked beer from them. It's probably the handling by the distributor, but it sucks you can't get beer you like more readily because someone else doesn't know how to handle it.

Drinking a Deschutes Twilight summer ale. I got two 12-packs for $12 from the store I work at. Woo!

Because it's only 4:30, and I just finished a great bike ride, I'm not drinking anything right now. Last night, I went to a concert, and the local brew pub (the Great Dane, for those who live in or near Madison, WI) had something called Abrikoos. It was fantastic. So was the IPA I had, which they called Texas Speed Bump. No idea why, but it was nice and hoppy.
