Heard Reubens Crikey is real good too.

I liked the Fremont Centennial/Simcoe, though it was wildly bitter in a way I haven't experienced in a long time. Looking forward to the Citra/Amarillo.

You following this thread? https://www.beeradvocate.com/community/ ... 19.619760/


haha, that's what just piqued my interest again. i got a can of the citra/amarillo too. along with the trap door co-hop, crux pert near and matchless fresh fluff. went back to beer junction today and picked up a couple other trap doors and some baerlic beers they just got in too. i'm good for a bit i think.

Had some Cantillon Kriek at the Mecca Grade Estate Malt harvest fest on Saturday. Ruled, of course. Also lots of rare Ale Apothecary, Alesong, De Garde, and Fremont stuff. Rusty Nail was a highlight.

Track brewery in Manchester have got really good lately. The green can is an imperial version of their flagship pale ale Sonoma, brewed at Other Half.

Had a taster at the bar and seemed pretty excellent. Anyone had a can in the US?

This fresh hop stuff is getting out of hand. Picked up the Cloudburst/Bale Break Citra Slicker, Reuben's Fresh Hop Crikey, and Matchless/Skookum The Freshmaker.

They are canning and distributing now. Having their No Mates Citra IPA right now and it's...fine. Really nothing special.

Is anybody heading to Woodshop 13 next month? Last year was a blast, my buddy who makes fun of me for being a beer nerd had such a good time that we're heading down to San Diego for the weekend for it. I haven't been outside of LA in two years so I'm very much looking forward to it.

I'm in South Florida for the first time in like a decade and sampling some local hype breweries and it's mostly shit. Pretty disappointing!

I wonder if the atrocious taste of their tap water has any effect. I know breweries treat their water but still

Suarez pilsners are the only thing in beer that even matters in 2019. Keep your damn lactose IPAs.

Only a few, to be fair. Due South, Khoffner, Wynwood, Copperpoint, MIA, Civil Society. Civil Society and Wynwood were the highlights, but mostly Civil Society.

Are you at their taproom? If so, I am extremely jealous. Nothing like those pours.

i was at a wedding in the Hudson Valley the other weekend and had to visit Suarez while I was in the area; best brewery i've been to in a long time. Got pours of Qualify and Palatine & picked up cans of Crispy Little and Bones Shirt, plus a few of their bottles. No one is doing better lagers right now. I drank that 4pk of Bones Shirt so fast; it's a perfect fall beer. I need more dark lagers in my life.

this Founder's shit is inSANE. fuck founder's.

https://www.metrotimes.com/table-and-ba ... e-is-black

The suit is moving through the trial process and is in in depositions. That’s where Founders revealed a startling and arguably ludicrous defense: The manager who fired Evans is claiming he didn’t know that Evans is Black.

A transcript of the exchange between Founders' Detroit general manager Dominic Ryan and Evans’ attorney, Jack Schulz, shows Schulz shifting from shocked to incredulous and perhaps a bit angry as Ryan claims he had no idea Evans is Black. Instead of just answering the question and moving on, Ryan digs in deeper and deeper, repeatedly asking for clarification when Schulz asks questions like “Are you aware Tracy is Black?”

At one point, Ryan even claims that he doesn’t know if former President Barack Obama, Kwame Kilpatrick, or Michael Jordan are African-American, because he has “never met them.”

good rule of thumb. unfortunately this all stems originally from the Detroit location but Founder's had since made an ass out of themselves all the way up the chain.
