I read online (no I don't believe everything I read here) but it said that their Vienna Lager is brewed by Gordon Biersch. I don't know if it's true and can't get a GB for comparison but they are both tasty!

Dang, and I just polished off my sixer of the TJ's Doppelbock last night. I bought it for the original $4.99. Yes the TJ's beers are made by Gordon Biersch. They are pretty good representations of classic european beer styles and you can't beat the price.

Speaking of shiner, sure am glad that they finally started distributing that in IL (least, when I make it back there I will be).

I'll put another vote towards TJ beers not being great, but definitely good for the value, esp for $3/6. They have a good selection of inexpensive wines too. Their CHilean collection is a consistent good buy ($4-5/750 I think).

Nice find, BP.

I always love it when I visit my sister in Milwaukee and we take a pit stop at the Discount Liquor. They always seem to have $3/sixers there trying to clear our shelf space; it rocks!
