I wish. Just wanted to find other East Coast and Midwest beers that are friendly to my palate. I think my two favorite East of the rocky beers are Hopsecutioner and Two hearted.Wait so are you looking to open shop out here? I can tell you from having lived in various places all along this coast, the east is thirsty. Make a kick a$& west coast IPA that we all can actually get and you'll do just fine.
I disliked smutty. Too dank for meingchr1 said:Plenty of very good IPAs on the east coast. The 2XIPA, Sixpoint Resin, Otter Creek Black IPA, Middle Ages Impaled IPA and Smuttynose IPA to name a few.
The beach was pretty awesome. Very cool. Nope don't surf; Mountain bike and Motorbikes.Last but not least if you do surf, go to the 6th street access in Surf City, there used to be a pier there. There is still underwater structure so the surf is slightly better, and less crowded. Get in with the locals during the winter time and they will take care of you in the summer. I really wish I could get back there, many fond memories.
Im not sure where exactly you were at in NC but I wouldn't just generalize and say "the east doesn't have this..." Bc where I am from in Philly the things you experienced wouldn't fly. Philly happens to be on the east coast and our beer selection and local beer can rival any.HopLife said:Thanks guys, if I find some time I might compile all of the suggestions so future hop heads will have a nice long list of beers to look for on the shelves.
You should come visit Oregon. When I visited Philadelphia I was homesick for all the options. Iron Mountain and Victory were OK, though. The Portland area alone has over 40 breweries. I would like to see Philly beer week when I can to compare more.Im not sure where exactly you were at in NC but I wouldn't just generalize and say "the east doesn't have this..."
