Probably an occasional thing, like when they ship cases to NYC or Philly for on prem consumption only. It was nice to drink Focal Banger in BK, not so nice to spend $9 a can.

Every Brut IPA I’ve had is terrible. I don’t understand the fascination with this.

a restaurant in my hometown made the first brut ipa i've liked

they did it with a different method that the bartender explained very thoroughly and which i immediately forgot

it was called champagne problematique

I found a couple of Maine Brewing bottles (Peeper pale ale and Another One IPA) at Whole Foods and gave them a shot, they are both so crisp and crushable and pure. Made me realize that I'm a bit tired of all the super flavorful robust hazy nonsense.

HPB is very good at this also

This beer is underrated and I can't believe I didn't start drinking it until this year. I've been into their amber ale as an easy drinker too. Such a classic.

It's a shame they haven't put out a memorable new beer in a long time. They badly need a new pale ale, among other things.

I would take a decent hazy over a brut any day, I have yet to try a brut IPA that I found remotely appealing. I still love a good hazy

Man I love pizza port bacon and eggs. So coffee forward and in a way that isn’t just your usual chocolatey coffee dark roast way. So good even from the can

love that beer, need to remember to pick up cans

went to hpb with friends for griffiths last night, tried and ranked:

jamaica blue (perfect, unexpected coffee complexity)
coconut and chili (three times as spicy as last year but coconut holds its own, great for sharing)
colonel griffith (nice balance, not 'pastry' even with more body and vanilla)
wash-prosessed ethiopian (boldest coffee flavor of all of em)

griffith park (modern times collab bba blend, balanced but forgettable)
chocolate, coconut and cinnamon (big on coconut and light on cinnamon, okay)
bba batch 3 (big bourbon hit but thinned out unfortunately)

Lagunitas IPA has arrived in 19.2 oz. cans, only $2 at my local bottle shop.

The pop top on the can features a die cut of their red blotch ‘Sucks’ logo!

Yeah, all of their cans have that die cut. It's pretty rad.

the 4.0% abv version is not going to be for everyone, but personally i really like it. it tastes like hop flavored sparkling water, virtually no malt presence.

I don’t know if I got a fresher batch this year or what, but Nugget Nectar is everything I want it to be right now. Maybe I just missed crisp, hoppy beer with an actual malt presence. Either way, it’s good and I will keep buying it every winter until I wise up and quit drinking.

Hop Wallop still sucks. Just stupidly bitter and that's it. Don't miss beers like that.
