So at family's house for the holidays, and being in my Quebec area I miss out on the craft brew everyone talks about. This being the first time I trek over the border since I gained appreciation for craft beer. Today 54 dollars later I left with:
-Stone Ruination IPA
-Sierra Nevada Porter
-Sierra Nevada pale ale
-Anchor steam beer
-Not so American craft Guinness Extra stout
I have made my way through a few, everythings getting better. Amazed at the IBU's on Ruination gotta love it.
Anyone got other recommendations I should try I got 2 weeks of beer heaven.

So much beer, so little time. If you liked Ruination, make sure to try Dogfish Head 90 Minute IIPA. Try the 60 Minute for something more sessionable.

What do you mean, "trek over the border"? You're in the US for the holidays?
Anyways, if you're from Montreal like your description says then dont miss out Dieu Du Ciel brewery on Laurier street just at the corner of st-Laurent blvd.!

happy holidays

Hm. I don't like Ruination or 90 Minute. However, I LOVE Stone IPA and DFH 120. Have to always mention North Coast Red Seal in my favorites.

Where abouts in South Carolina? Good Luck with the Dogfish Head Beer here. I've looked all over the area and have found no such luck. In Fact the only time i have had it was in Ohio. There maybe some in in the bigger areas such as Columbia and Charelston though. I did find some Arragant Bastard Oaked ale and i would say give that a try.

Anyways if your around the area I've been known to knock a couple back.

Don't you drink Unibroue in Montreal? It's my all-time favorite non-homebrew! Trois Pistoles is great.

I wish I knew what was available in SC. I would give you 100 suggestions if you came to CA.

If you see anything Slesmith or Green Flash, pick it up. Neither disappoint and there's a chance they could be out there.
