what would you say was the ideal temp? I liked that one, but i drank it on a hike where it was in the 40s out so it might just have stayed at the right temp.

I’m not sure what temp it was served at, but it started out pretty bitter then about halfway through I got the really nice malt taste from it, then as it continued to warm up it got kind of chalky, I assume from the ovaltine. I’m sure I’ll have it again soon so my opinions could change. I didn’t end up buying any cans though.

ooooh you are in for a treat. Also best/cheapest place to buy New Glarus is Woodman's Markets across the state - usually $8 for 6 packs.
I would also recommend Funk Factory in Madison for sours. Be on the look out for Brewing Projekt beers for NEIPAs.

Industrial Arts Wrench is really good. There are so many bad NEIPAs right now, so finding one that is actually refreshing and not just yeast slurry is a big deal to me.

I had the same experience with my crowler last night. Cold it was a bit like a lighter Abyss, but with more roast and less hops. A little warmer and it tasted really nice. I didn't let it get too warm, though.

Picked up both of the Taking Donations variants today, psyched for those.

My gf just got a job at Modern Times here in LA. Their employees get quite a lot of free beer every week. I am extremely pleased with this new development.

I'm guessing a lot of people might have issues with Taking Donations being a bit thin, but I find most barleywines to be too thick and sickeningly sweet, so I'm really digging the single barrel version I just cracked. Gonna be hard for me to save my other bottles.

I am moving apartments and I just found a box of 8 remaining gap earth tulips. If anyone wants one, you have two weeks to email me at gapearth at gmail. I forget how much these cost, but I am pretty sure I recouped the money I spent getting them made so I am happy to just send them out for cost of shipping. Otherwise, they are going to the goodwill in January.

Industrial arts make very solid beers and I highly recommend visiting. It's not the best place to hang out but it is a really cool/unique space (some kind of old Mill/factory?)

I prefer wrench to Sloop JB, but they are another brewery I've randomly been into twice in the past few months. They make great stuff all around too but have a very strange Nickelodeon Studios vibe to their branding and decor which is extremely odd.

Hudson valley beer scene is heating up, sloop has another spot right near Suarez. Hudson valley brewing is good. In the Catskills you've got west kill and catskill. I think Woodstock is supposed to be good but haven't stopped in.

Picked up some other half for the first time in a long time

what are the chill, readily available canned stouts / porters these days? something that is 6-8%, non-barrel aged, with no adjuncts. just want to drink something in the cold without getting blitzed or smelling like a coffee pina colada.

I think what I am thinking of is something like la cumbre malpais stout or fremont dark star. both in cans, both lower abv, neither have any adjuncts.

are there other widely available beers like this out there?

honestly, I've never brewed beer but I figure porter is a hard one to fuck up, as I've never had a bad one.

atm I'm drinking a collective arts brewing stranger than fiction, 5.5%, cascade & nugget hops, unfiltered, 16oz can.

but I'll drink an anchor porter or a great lakes edmund fitzgerald any time. Bottled not canned but that makes no difference to me.

like I wouldn't over think porter as a style. my preferred bottle shop gets new ones all the time from a raft of downstate IL brewers and they're always.... good? Satisfying? again it's just an approachable style, pick one out of a hat and you'll be fine.

was lamenting tonight that even though deschutes is canning they hasn't expanded to the obsidian stout.
