    I'll probably be getting some St. Benardus (Is that how it is spelled?) soon.

    Stuff is really good.

    Guessing you mean Yuengling? One of my favorites. Was all over the place back in PA since thats where its brewed. At that price point, not much competes with it.

    Unfortunately its not out here in Cali. I miss it greatly.

    I had one of these last night at dinner, enjoyed it quite a bit.

    That Snow Cap stuff looks tasty. As for Yuengling, they sell it in Ohio, and I live right on the border and can go there and get cases whenever I want or go get it on draft at the bars. The stuff is really good. I don't know why they won't sell it in Indiana yet, and if I'm not mistaken it was not until recently that Ohio got it. Good stuff for a cheap price.

    I was sippin' on some Sam Adams Winter Lager tonight. I know, nothing unheard of, and I know it is everywhere, but it was good.

    After my Sam Adams tonight, I might get back into drinking darker and different beers, besides the usual, Bud Light, Coors Light/Domestics. So much for losing weight.

    Yeah Yuengling doesn't ship west really. Only reason they are in the south is cause the opened a brewery down in Tampa (i think its Tampa, I know its in Florida). I really do miss the stuff. Also miss getting a keg of it for $60 and having a good weekend

    With the B-ball talk being kind of slow I was poking around the site and found this thread. Big craft beer fan and think Indy has a pretty decent local beer scene. Every time I come through I load up on Sun King Osiris, Flat 12 Pogues Run Porter and a few others. Also try to visit 20 Tap for a burger and some beers if I can squeeze it in.

    Have a friend that lives in Lowell, IN and have had a great time hanging out at the Three Floyds tap room. This year we are planning a MI beer tour. Going to hit Bells, Founders and the Hop Cat among a few others.

    Here is what is in the fridge now and should also be available to the Indy guys. Great beer if you like a big tropical IPA.

    It's really hard to beat the Tripel de Ripple from Brugge. Great flavor, high alcohol content.

    Beck's Sapphire - lousy commercials during the Super Bowl. Pretty good beer.

    Strangely enough, the bottle says both, "brewed under the German Purity Law of 1516" and "Product of USA."

    Go figure.

    Lately I've been sticking with authentic brews from the motherland - Radeberger's Pilsner and Warsteiner.

    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    i picked up some normal Becks actually cause it was on sale, or else i was gonna try the Beck's Sapphire. And I also noticed that Becks is brewed in the US and thought wtf. my bottle says originated in Germany, product of US. Bremen 1874, Philadelphia 1876.

    InBev, the Belgian company that owns Stella Artois, acquired Beck's somewhere along the way.

    InBev merged with Anheuser Busch a couple of years ago. In the past year, most Beck's brands sold in the US have been brewed in St. Louis, not imported from Germany.

    A friend of mine is a visiting brewmaster at Sun King (he is starting his own brewery in Cincinnati)

    They have an event but it may be full:

    I don't drink Stella so I don't know, but with some beer you can really tell the difference. Red Stripe in Jamaica is the nectar of the Gods, but that stuff that passes for Red Stripe that they bottle in Latrobe PA and sell up here pales in comparison. I swear if I did a blind taste test I could tell the difference.

    Anyone try anything from Triton Brewing Company? They have some at the liquor stores in Plainfield. I've been hooked on "Fieldhouse Wheat".

    http://tritonbrewing.com/year-round-...ldhouse-wheat/

    Their beer tastes sooo good. Figured some Pacer fans might like the design thats what made me want to try it.

    this thread needs to come back.

    Looking back at drinking Beck's.... what was I thinking. I have fallen down the rabbit hole of craft beer and dont even want to come back out.

    Anything from Lagunitas always hits the spot. Loved the High Westified barrel aged stout they had out earlier this year. And how can't you like some Brown Shugga???? Anyone that visits Norther California and enjoys beer needs to check out their brewery, they always have some 1 offs there that are great. And just down the road is Russian River. Just get the flight there. Definitely worth it. really want to get a trip to San Diego soon to check out all the great breweries down there. Ballast Point, Stone, Alesmith, Mission and I know I'm leaving some out.

    If you're talking San Diego breweries, you gotta talk Lost Abbey. Which coincidentally enough is the brewery that helped spawn this thread 6 years ago.

    Glad I'm not the only one who cringes at some of the stuff I posted on this board years ago...

    I was in San Jose CA a few months ago, if you're ever there you gotta try out ISO beers downtown. They have lots of offerings from smaller breweries out West that you just don't see much of in the Midwest or the East Coast. Here is their Yelp page: http://www.yelp.com/biz/iso-beers-san-jose. They don't offer any food but there is an awesome sub sandwich place next door, and they don't care if you take in outside food.

    My Dad is a big craft brew guy and is obsessed with Gumballhead from Three Floyd's. Last time we were in Indiana he found a six pack at the local liquor store and was surprised they even had it in stock. He bought it the day I left town so I didn't get a chance to try it, does it really live up to the hype? He prefers it over Zombie Dust but he loves that stuff too.

    Yep, definitely on the list.

    I'll have to remember ISO beers in SJ. I'm sure something will take me there sooner than later. If you are ever in Oakland, gotta check out Beer Revolution. Have a friend who works over there now, just a great selection, 50 beers on tap. Also in SF, go to Mikkeller Bar. Great selection and they brew some damn good beer themselves.

    Gumballhead is awful good and a great summer beer IMO. Awesome use of Amarillo hops and low enough in alcohol that one can knock back a few without regretting it.

    I think Three Floyd's is a little overrated in general but their hoppy beers are usually top notch.
