Everytime I'm up in the Seattle visiting my girlfriend I have Manny's because it's on tap everywhere. I can't find it where I live very often, there's one place in town that has rotating taps and they will cycle some Manny's or Lucille through on occassion. Can't go wrong with a Manny's at all but I've never seen it bottles either.

It won't be too much of it, trust me. I wasn't brewing last year and made sure to stock up on it before it went out of rotation. Great beer.

Have you tried Sweetwater 420? Its made here in Atlanta and is delicious, i believe they only service Ga and the border states, try it. They also have a very good IPA if you are looking for pales.

Belles pale is pretty good, and they sell it everywhere. I used to live in NY and they sell an awesone beer called Saranac, its amazing and i miss it, its actually what got me into pales, now its my fav type of beer!

The problem with that is none of those beers make it to Washington. I might have seen Saranac a long time ago.

Agreed, i cant get saranac here in Ga and it kills me, but the Pac NW is a great place for beer in general, especially craft, im sure you have a fine assortment within reach

Really? Are you crazy? Mirror Pond is a great drinkable beer. It gets almost universally favorable reviews on RateBeer.com

Why don't you like it?

Definitely SN, I can't stand Mirror Pond. It always tastes so earthy to me, which is a bummer because I really like Deschutes other offerings, especially Black Butte Porter, and oddly enough Mirror,Mirror.

Yes, I know that both SN and Lagunitas both mark their bottles this way

Also, Firestone walker and others lazer print the date into the neck of the bottle, it is hard to see but look for it
