drinking the southern star right now. haven't tried the other two. the gf wanted something hoppy and i haven't had it in a while so i picked some up. worth it just for the aroma alone, smells like grapefruit. and it's brewed locally so that's always a plus in my book. really interested in the other two brews. don't know if i'll get to them tonight...

Finally got some of this last night. It was good but I wasn't blown away, kind of disappointed since it was almost $10 a bottle.

Just saw that there's some on ebay for $25/bottle + $9 shipping. Dang.

did you drink it straight up or against food? it works really well against turkey... anyway, good stuff

http://hoosierbeergeek.blogspot.com/200 ... table.html

if you get boulevard where you're at, their brett saison is pretty nice as well - maybe not as funky as you'd expect a brett beer to be, but i'd imagine that it'll get weird the older it gets. and saison dupont is pretty much the standard, and maybe a little cheaper than the bruery stuff.

and if you knew all that already then i'm sorry if i came across as a know it all.

Did it straight.

I have a bottle of the brett saison at home...haven't tried it yet. So far the Smokestack series hasn't blown my hair back.

i've had a couple of these since i moved, and you're absolutely correct, tasty, cheap, and gets the job done.


worth mentioning they're contract brewed by unibroue


I got a bottle of this last night, and a sixer of their Stockyard Oatmeal Stout, which is made by Goose Island, so I'm wondering how similar it is to their own Oatmeal Stout.

i almost bought some of that oatmeal stout the other night. picked up the vintage ale, though. the dude at the register told me that i should stock up if i liked it and let it age a couple years, and that they aren't going to be getting any more shipments of it.
i did get some of that JB Winterfest, and damn, for 5 bucks a sixer it was much better than i expected. just really smooth for a 7.5% brew.

The Stockyard Oatmeal Stout is, I think, the worst stout I have ever purchased: thin, watery, and coffee/cocoa-flavored with all the authenticity and subtlety of, say, a Cherry Coke.

I mean, I wasn't expecting the BCS at $5/six, but still...

Going back to school has really hampered my expensive beer habit.

But I am drinking some Old Speckled Hen right now; it's been a while. Obviously nothing amazing, but it's always welcome and incredibly drinkable.

I discovered I still have a couple bottles of Boréale hiding in the back of the fridge from my last Québec trip. Those will be a nice Christmas treat.

So i got real lucky at my local today and snagged a couple sixers of real rare Short's brew company sixers. Like, I basically got 1/4 of all that store's stock for the year.

Short's Brew - Kind Ale , Its not even on their website (that i can see). I guess its an a super hopped wet hop ale. **edit wow thsi stuff smells like I'm in some underground bunker where all the best hops are kept** NO WAY
