...and is that draft list, or a beer list (Brennser)?

I mean, if it's a bottle list, my basement has it beat...

its a bottle list, and yes, my basement has it beat too

but given that K'zoo stout retails for 8/9 bucks a sixer and hopslam for 20-25 I thought it was a pretty decent deal

That was my though when I first read your post. Good restaurant price for a bottle of Hopslam.

If it was draft, a different size pour would have helped explain the pricing.

[Wow, where is this?  Funny that with such a great beer selection, they still pander to tasteless hipsters with PBR.

the same can be said of Meridian Pint...



Meridian Pint is hipster dbag ground zero

Really?  I think your referring to Red Derby or Black Cat.  Haven't seen too many hipsters at Meridian Pint.  A bit on the clean cut side but definitely not hipster.  As for PBR, turn your nose down just a bit and learn to appreciate all beer....well...except for Miller Lite and Bud Lite.

Just as I don't want to fuck every person on earth, I don't want to drink every beer on earth either. It's called having taste.  ;)

I guess props should be given to local Bell's distributor as an Old Town establishment still had Hopslam as well. Curiosity got me on the second round and I was very pleasantly surprised by Firestone Walkers Double Jack on draft. A well balanced double IPA that was hoppy without getting close to over the top like Hopslam. It was on the sweet side but had a nice malt middle to avoid being too sweet for drinkability. I want to go back and see if the start with Hopslam is affecting my judgement.

Did anybody get any Founders Imperial Stout?

I went to three places today. One had sold out. One was limiting your purchase to one 12 oz single. The third had one four pack left, and I got it. Next up, Founders KBS, which will be even harder to grab.

Drank two Founders Double Troubles earlier today. Damn, talk about a beer that sneaks up on you. It's 7pm and I'm done.
