How about a Drinking Thread?
Now Drinking: Schofferhofer
Well, basically, you get what you pay for. If you buy a 30pk of shit beer for $15, you'll get a ton of beer, but it'll be of very low quality. If you buy a 6pk of good beer (some may refer it as "craft beer"), you'll get a smaller amount of beer, but it'll be of greater quality.
Now Drinking: Victory's Java Cask
Tasting pretttty good.
Old picture but drinking this right now. Feeling too lazy to take a new picture of it. This is mighty nice. The base Yeti and all of the variants are top tier. This was before I got my cat.
Don't you work at a bottle shop, employee discount maybe?
The Yetis are some good stuff. Although, most of them sit on the shelves all around town. Some of them on my shelves are like 2 years old. haha
The problem with the Java Cask is that it was a limited release. Something like this went to the top __ (probably 3) stores that sold the most Victory beers throughout the year. That's usually the case for most other special releases, where the stores that sell the most of that brewery's beers throughout the year get the good stuff. All depends on how many cases are sent to the state as a whole, etc.
Anyhow, if my store got it, I would've paid about $10-11.50 for the bottle (I get 20% off).
drinking this shit, was the cheapest wine I could find at the grocery store on my way home from work
listening to folk metal on Spotify and hating myself as usual
Side note: Has anyone ever tried Kronenbourg 1664?!? I tried it at a nice restaurant and I fell in love. Absolutely the smoothest, nicest beer I've tasted. It's a French beer, I think.
Currently at a local brewery. Their double mango IPA is on point. It's called Hamilton Family Brewery if you're ever in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. Their coffee stout is essentially a SN Coffee Stout clone and its darn good.
>mobile keeps changing my ID
I wish I could get a discount on all beers like that. All I get are discounts at the brewery I work at. :/ At least Pugachevs Cobra and Betty are really good.
Speaking of which, the local bottle shop finally got Backwoods Bastard and Breakfast Stout. I am extremely happy and will probably pop one open when I get home. But if you're ever in need of some local stuff and that trade offer is still up, then I'll always be here!
Oh baby, that one is a treat!
hahahaha, it's good for a starter and just to bullshit around with.
Sounds like quite the night.
Never heard of Hamilton Family Brewery. Wait...you work at Hanger 24???
I'm always up for a trade, whether it's for good shelf stuff or rarer things! My username on BA is DrippingI (that's a capital 'i'), so just hit me up.
Now drinking SN Beer Camp Tropical IPA. Holy weed Batman, this is more dank than tropical. Super piney, vegetal, small amount of fruity hoppiness. Not bad but not great. It's ight. Sorry for the mid-drinking image.
They're very small at the moment, they've only bottled three of their beers in limited batches. They had a barrel aged version of their stout that was very nice. Reminded me a lot of a lower ABV Pugachevs to be honest!
Yup yup! It's not a bad gig even though a small portion of my paycheck does go back to them in the form of buying fresh beer!
My store just got some of that Tropical IPA. IMO, if they were to make 6pks out of any of the Beer Camp beers they did last year, they should do the one with Ninkasi. That was probably the the best one of the 12pk. However, all the 12pks that came to Indiana were already, like, a month old.
Interesting. I'll be on the lookout for when they do any releases or whatever. I can't say I know that comparison as I've never had Pugachevs before. :/
What do you do there? And yeah, I know exactly what you mean. A chunk of my paycheck usually always goes back to the store. hahaha
Now Drinking: Lagunitas' Cappuccino Stout
Thought this was ok, especially for being $5/bomber
Now Drinking: Crafted/Cigar City's Criminal KLP (mead w/ key lime juice, graham cracker, pecan, and lime zest)
This is actually pretty tasty. Might have to pick up another bottle.
Now Drinking: Founders' Breakfast Stout
A staple in my household.
Opinions about this motherfucker here? Am in love with it basically. Need at least 2 a day
