It's really cool that other half has brought back so many collaboration beers for their 5th anniversary

I was stoked to pick up Superfun again. I wish they would bring Doug or Not My Jam back.

fw mind haze is prob the best widely available hazy i’ve ever had. odell wolf picker is my non-hazy go-to.


Yeah just had Mind Haze this weekend. Hell of a deal at 8.99 for a sixer and tastes just as good as the local hazy 4 packs that are 3-4 bucks more.

hell yeah, i love the lower than usual abv too. speaking of local-ish hazies...i may have asked you before but have you been to barn town/whatcha think of it? been thinking about doing a day trip one of these weekends to check it out.

I haven’t been but have had a couple of their hazy ipas on draft at other places. I like them. Their food looks good but can’t vouch for it. If nothing else you can go to El Bait Shop and/or Iowa Taproom while you’re in town.

for shelfies lately i've been reaching for 4-packs of pilsner urquell, guinness or boddingtons lol. super MOR macro import classics. i just get to drink so much good stuff at work i don't often feel like buying beer. as far as what's been on tap at work lately:
firestone gen-1 is a decent hazy with big sticky west coast notes
BFM bon chien (2017) is one of the most wonderful and complex sours i've ever had the pleasure of drinking. i really get the cognac barrel and i'm for it.
lost abbey ghosts in the forest with guava is a very nice fruited sour, most memorable beer i've had from them in awhile
uneticke pivo no. 12 is like the most elemental perfect lager i've ever drank, worth seeking out for fellow pilsner heads

whoever mentioned the flight prices at mikkeller dtla being out of wack was not kidding. they had a bunch of jester king on for $10/18cl pour but you can get four 5ozs for $20. seems kinda silly but i’m not complaining!

also robo pils at hpb is really damn good

pretty tough. almost all the bottles go to floodland's beer club. there are a handful of draft events around western washington each year. along with roughly one public bottle sale each quarter. sign up for more info on their website if you are curious.

I feel like I'm almost singlehandedly keeping my local store stocked with relatively fresh Crooked Stave Von Pilsner. As far as shelf lagers I've had access to go, it's in the same class as Prima, Pivo, and Jack's and Urban Chestnut for me.

Yeah I was really excited to try the pilsner after how it placed on those Paste lists and while it was pretty good, I liked the Zwickel a lot more.

I was in Wisconsin over the weekend and grabbed some cans from Hacienda brewing up in Door County. Excellent stuff, favorite new brewery. Will be hunting for more.

Alright Barntown started showing up on drafts around here last week and they're not as good as I remember. They're fine, but I think we have better hazy options around, like Pulpit Rock, Toppling Goliath's smaller release stuff, Big Grove, etc.

The rash of old-guard breweries closing in PDX is kinda interesting

Wonder which will go next. You'd think Rogue but they'll probably exist forever. It was easier to support these kinds of breweries every once and awhile when grocery stores would sell them for $6.99. Now most boring shelfies are like $12. The $16/4pk seems much more enticing and exciting to consumers

i should definitely visit russian river if i have the chance right? i'm in sacramento for a few days next week and one of the days i'm driving out to point reyes super early in the AM and thinking about stopping there for lunch on the way back

there seems to be a ton of good options around sacramento these days which certainly was not the case when i went there like ~5 years ago
