    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:

    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    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.
