Just got back from my vacation to Milwaukee. What a trip!
I drank so much good beer.
I brought back a good variety--most of it from Discount Liquor on Oklahoma. This place was amazing. Its a HUGE liquor store, and one complete aisle about 30 feet long is stocked with beers from all over the place, mostly foreign and craft beers. I have never even heard of 3/4 of them, and I swear there was 500+ different beers in that one aisle alone. Anyway, I included pics of everything I brought home. I had an entire suitcase full of beer. Its great!
Here are some of the ones I got:
1. I finally got to try Hop Rod Rye. Holy freaking amazing beer, man!!!! WOW. Brought back two 22 oz. bottles, and one of Bear Republic's others, Racer 5 IPA, which I haven't tried.
2. Got a sixer of Bigfoot Ale by Sierra Nevada. I've been wanting to try it forever but we can't ever get it here and it supposedly sells fast every year.
3. An 8 beer variety pack from Lakefront Brewery in Milwaukee. At a bar I tried the Cream City Pale Ale and was blown away, so I picked up the variety pack. I had thier Cattail Ale too and it was great. Also picked up one bottle of limited edition 10th anniversary barleywine. Can't wait to try it!
4. Sprecher. I was kind of bummed about the selection at Discount Liquor, but I got most of the ones I wanted. Missed out on the Maibock. Tried the Stout and it wasn't the best I've had. Didn't even bring one home. The Amber is great, and of course the soda is great. I had to get a 4-pack each of Cream Soda and Puma Kola cause its such a treat!
Had a TON of other beers spanned throughout the rest of the weekend as well. I'll mention some of those down lthe line, I'm sure. Wow.
Sorry for the long post, but had to share my score!!!!
Full reviews coming on all the ones I got. Of course my buddy Sam will have to try them all too!!!
