"It's here! Our latest brew Ddedicated to Beards, Beard Beer is brewed with a yeast created from Brewmaster John Maier's Beard. No Need to freak out, Brewers have used wild yeasts in beer making for centuries. John has had the same Old Growth Beard since 1983 and for over 15,000 brews, so it is no great suprise that a natural yeast ideal for brewing was discovered in his beard."

So who is gonna be the first to try this??

Not 100% if I believe that but I must say it sounds gross as hell.

nice!

I grew up in CO, where were you at? We're you a fan of the CO Native and New Belgiums?

 

I lived in Eagle, Boulder and LoDo. I never had the Native but I really liked many of New Belguims brews.  I've been on that tour a few times and highly recommend it if you haven't been up there.  It's full of awesome info and great beer.  For free.  I also liked Ska a lot.  And of course Odell's, Avery, Twisted Pine, Walnut Street, Boulder Beer, Breckenridge, Crazy Mountain, Left Hand....   ;)  I miss the beer scene out there.  So many to choose.

 

Where did you grow up? It sucks there are so many amazing Colorado beers we can't get our hands on out in NJ.

Oh yeah I've been to Durango.  My old man used to fly out to CO just to go mountain biking with his brother and friend and they loved Durango as well as Crested Butte and Telluride.

Canals in Lawrenceville has Kane Head High on tap.  Never had.  As an IPA lover is it worth the 64oz pour?

So I followed through and got a growler of Kane Head High IPA on Friday and I have to say at first I wasn't impressed but by the time I had a few sips down I liked it more and more.  It's really a nice summer beer.  Lighter than I expected and very drinkable.  I liked it so much I went back the following day and re-filled the growler to take down to a BBQ so my dad and uncle in from Colorado could give it a try.  Both enjoyed it.  

 

Also had the opportunity to try Manayunk Brewery's Dreamin Double IPA.  Not the hop bomb I was expecting from a 8.5% ABV imperial.  On the malty side of IIPAs.  Overall not a bad beer but on the expensive side at $15.99/6 pk cans.  Not sure I'd buy another 6-er at that price point.  Definitely would buy it at a bar though if I ever ran across it.

 

While at Canals filling up growler #2 I saw a Founders (I know, I know) Devil Dancer Triple IPA in the "reserve case".  They had one single bottle for $6.99. I passed on it but wish I didn't just because I've never seen it before.  Has anyone here tried it? Thoughts?

I really like Devil Dancer but because of the price I usually just buy one a year.  Whatever combination of hops they use creates kind of an oniony taste, so if you don't like that you probably won't like Devil Dancer.  I think Deviant Dale's by Oskar Blues has a similar taste, so maybe you should try that first since it's not as expensive.

Did anyone else go to the Founders take over  at Hamilton UNO? It was fun to see a whole bar drinking the good stuff and no crappy Budweisers on the bar.

I went to a nearby bar this weekend known for having nothing but craft on tap and was kinda annoyed how many people at the bar were instead sipping on sh!tty Bud, Coors and Miller at the bar from bottles.

There is another Coors fake Microbrew brand called ThirdShift out there. Saw some college kids raving about it.

 

I am so paranoid now I google unknown brands.

Yeah a few of my buddies and I went down there.  Some of my friends had never had KBS before so they were kinda bummed out that it kicked before we were able to get there.  I was at a couple other Philly Beer Week events though:  the Founders tap takeover at P.O.P.E. (Pub on Passyunk Ave.) and the Firestone Walker takeover at South Philly Tap Room.  Both of them were awesome and we got to try some kickass hard to find beers.

A good indicator is that if it is brand new and suddenly there are displays and signage for it in the store, it is most likely an Anheuser-Busch or MillerCoors product.

That's a pretty good rule of thumb.  Usually the new real craft brews are just sitting there with minimal to no signage.

 

I saw Batch 19 at the liquor store near my work yesterday mixed right in the craft beer section.  That really grinds my gears but if they got rid of all the fake craft beers from that section, about 1/3 to 1/2 of it would be empty.

The Bottle King by me just started stocking Great Lakes, which was a great nostalgia moment for me. Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold was the first beer I ever loved, and I haven't been able to find it since I graduated college and moved back east. It's still a great beer as well.

Yeah Great Lakes just recently started distributing to New Jersey.  Haven't had any of their beers yet but I've heard good things about their Edmund Fitzgerald porter.
