    Homebrew has ruined my taste

    dont get me wrong I would by far rather have a good quality craft beer than any BMC type, however I am guilty of indulging in a PBR from time to time, but also I am finding I by far appreciate my homebrew to comparable commercial craft beer styles even some that I used to not be able to get by...

Does anyone know of a nice Belgian Strong Dark Ale that...

    I like Natural Light.

    gotta say i pick up a twelve pack or 30 rack of keystone at least every six months, or whenever my BMC friends are coming over, and have to admit I drink any and all leftovers especially in the summer and thoroughly enjoy every one of them even though I love my craft beer more, just takes me...

    Sierra Nevada 30th Anniversary Barleywine
