Default Lookie who stopped at trader joes

I've been wanting to try the chimay for a whole now. Plus the guy at the counter ordered me a case of their anniversary ale.

The Chimay blue was good. Haven't had the red yet.

Some of their botswain beers are ok. I really enjoyed the botswain HLV strong ale. The stockyard i was not a fan of. I really didnt like their xmas ale either (maybe it was the anniversary ale) - lot of hot alcohol flavors.

For the price - it's ok. Their ales are better than their lagers.

We have one in Westlake a couple miles before the lhbs. Not much of a selection at this one though. More wine drinkers it looks like.

their dunkleweisen is surprisingly good. can't be beat at $5.99/6 pack.

love me some chimay, of any color.

who brews the "Providential Golden Ale"? can you look over the bottle and see who actually made it? i'm wonder if it's Unibroue again, the folks who make TJ's annual Vintage ale.

No wine allowed in NY State, so we don't get that. Their beer selection isn't very good for NY (stakes are pretty high here). Their private label beers are really all they have that's unique.

Some of their beers are decent. I like mission street pale and IPA ( brewed at firestone walker), stockyard oatmeal stout, and bohemian lager. They won't blow you away, but IMO are good for the price.

The Golden Ale and Vintage Ale are both brewed by Unibroue. Very tasty and reasonable at $5.

Stakes are high in NY? WTF is that? The rest of the world settles for dregs? Hilarious comment.
