I kinda thought everything on the upper east coast was local... jk

It certainly seems that way from where I am. I'm in the center of Texas and it takes virtually all day to get out of this place! Was kinda nice when we stopped in Belmar, NJ, but visited NYC, as well as Annapolis, MD and it didn't take all day!

And it can take an hour and a half (one way) to get good BBQ.
They are talking local and not local for up North. We are Texans, so you have local stuff (meaning: "from Texas"), and the foreign stuff (meaning: "from anywhere else").

They burn the malts in dark beers so that they can cover up bad favors.

I guess it's all about perspective; everything's local when you come from a state that's just shy of 4,000 times the size of DC.

Y'all do have some damn good BBQ, though...

Cheers! [[]]D

"And it can take an hour and a half (one way) to get good BBQ."

I can't believe I posted it that way! It should have read:
Ain't gotta go anywhere for good BBQ unless you want someone else to cook it!

Despite having been close I can't say I've been to a place known for BBQ on the east coast (Carolina style), but I do enjoy the BBQ up in KC.

That's where SWMBO is from, and she claims everything, including the hills, are better there! Funny that she left it so fast!

That's got a touch of backdoor truth to it

Look, I learned in a Sam Adams commercial from years ago that beers brewed according to a 500 year old law from a foreign country are superior to modern beers. Is that not true?

Different, not necessarily superior.

(corrected production volume, original was 2005 #, updated with 2011)
Ok then, Yuengling is at 2.5 million, versus the 6 million limit to be called "small"
They are independent, still owned and operated by the Yuengling family.

And with a history of nearly 200 years, I think we can safely assume that most of their continuing recipes are fairly traditional. Their popular Lager perhaps is the exception since it was introduced in the 80's, but many of their other recipes are supposed to be pretty much the same as they were.

Yay! I get to be a craft beer snob without breaking the budget!
