i drank miller lite out of a can all weekend.  they went down like water and i couldn't stop drinking them.  i thought it odd that i only found myself peeing in the woods and not really getting hammered.  but maybe hammered is overrated and i should just be happy with the fact that sometimes beer in a can is ok.

Anyone know how long the Hopslam keg lasted at Big Hunt on Friday?   Big fan of the nugget nectar as well.  Seems to taste significantly better on tap though.  Tried the Lagunitas Hopstoopid over the weekend.  Thought it stood up to the hopslam pretty well

I love Fat Tire.  I pretty much only drink drafts when I travel to places that have it.

My favorites right now are Allagash White and Oliver Three Spires.

Fat Tire seems to have a decent distributor in NC as it was even in grocery stores on the Outer Banks this summer.
I kept it local by getting growlers from Outer Banks Brewing Station. Their Lemongrass Wheat Ale is good for hot days on the dunes.

I'm really digging this:

I think you can find that at either Ramparts Tavern or Rustico Restaurant, both in Alexandria.

Here is what I tried last month after going to Total Wine & Beverage and the Target in Burke. And the only beer that I did not enjoy throughly was the Pilsner Urquell:

Had this from the tap last night. A truly world class beer. Thankfully not as crazy as the Goose Island Bourbon Stout.



Also had this from the tap. Not in the same league, but still very good.

in the country, if you live there . . . it is difficult to find good beer, sometimes because the snobby owners of the store thinks people in the area only want "whatever" microbrews.  so i was elated when i came across



a few days later, actually tonight, i was in a good mood so i opened up one of

(Not wanting to start a new thread so I'm borrowing this one.)

Hey Seth, this would make a nice addition to your bar selection.

Dixie Elixirs



At the moment, the thing that I'm the most curious about is why the dark brown bottle is taller and the silver/clear one is ever so slightly different in shape.

finally got around to trying delirum tremens.

people have been talking up DT as if it was the holy grail of beer.  maybe my expectations were too high... or maybe it just isn't my idea of the perfect beer.  it was certainly above average, i liked the creamy feeling each sip left behind, but it was almost too sweet for me.  at that price there are other beers i'd rather spend my money on.
