No Craft Beer Thread?
Color me shocked that my in-depth, 10-second search found no such thread.

Obviously these small shops are my preferred beer makers.

Found one today that will fudgeing wreck you:  Green Flash's Green Bullet.

It's a triple IPA (you read that correctly, 10.1% ABV 100+ IBU....only available Sep-Dec so get on it).

These guys said "fudge the American hop shortage/prices" and went with all New Zealand hops.  The result is a citrusy, tropical fruit (mango) front end, a nice bitter back end and none of the alcohol wallop of a DIPA.  So smooth you will not realize how quickly you're drinking it.

Get some.  Now.  It's fudgeing delicious.

The Green Flash website tells me that Modica Market stocks this delicious product.

If they're out, you'll have to trek into Sandestin/Destin to visit Chan's or Beach Liquors.

Also, World of Beer (spit) at the Commons is pouring it on draft.  If you're willing to come to town, I'll swallow my disdain (teed that one up for you editing miscreants) for this establishment and join you there for a few.

Saw the edited post.  Will be happy to ride into the jungle and leave the classy, rich, pampered, shaved pussy back on the A for few beers with a friend.  You name it, I'll be there.

Yes it is.  And I sought out and hooked up with the male who started this thread last Friday.  Took his recommendation and picked up a carton of 4.  This is the commercial description:

"A full-bodied Triple IPA, Green Bullet combines New Zealand grown Pacific Gem and Green Bullet hops. Significant pine and citrus hoppiness hit the palate at first sip, accentuated by tropical notes of mango and pineapple, ending with a moderately aggressive, bitter finish."

I'm not sophisticated enough to put those words together.  I would have said great flavor with hints of fruit, but the finish was a little bitter for my taste.  But here's the thing.  At 10.5%, the bitterness goes away very quickly.

Can't teach this gaggle of humps any football nor will I waste my knowledge of beer on you.

NO!


Just drink your malt liquor and be happy.

Kroger keeps LITE on sale for $10.49 a 12 pack of tall boys. Some of you little people won't understand.
Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Good People brown and Back 40's Truck Stop Honey are two of my favorites right now. Both are local brewing companies and they are solid.

I don't drink high ABV at the tailgate.  Rookie move.
