Default Edmund Fitgerald

I'm not sure this is the correct forum. However with all the talk about EF I really wanted to try this beer. Have never tried the "other", but I digress. The swmbo and I were in the OBX this weekend and went by Chip's Wine and Beer Market at mile post 6 shopping center. I did not see any EF there, but when I mentioned it to Chip he gave me a bottle from his personal stash. Told me it was an Xmas gift and would not let me pay him for it. I did buy an assorted case of other beers from him, but still thougt it was a nice gesture from him. The beer was simply wonderfull. I can see why it is listed in Beer Advocate as one of the 50 beers to try before you die. Anyway, if anybody is planning a trip to the OBX next year be sure to include Chip's store in their plans.

It's my favorite porter ever, if that helps.

Sorry, it's not my taste. SWMBO has a taste for in occasionally, but not often...

I'd like to try it...in every sense of the meaning. Never had it in the bottle, SWMBO's never had it in the can.

It's the right time of the year OSU is in the BCS championship game.
I wonder if we'll get a review this time?

Very solid porter....perhaps my second fav behind Fullers when it's on draught.

Chip sounds like a stand up kinda guy!
