Re: No Craft Beer Thread?
I don't drink high ABV at the tailgate.  Rookie move.

Yes but watching Buzz dance like a drunk monkey is sooooo worth it.

New Belgium Fat Tire is a very smooth amber ale.  Solid choice.

Back 40 has a coffee stout called Trade Day. 

Samuel Smith's nut brown ale, for those brown ale peeps.

Samuel Smith's NBA is an old go-to for me.  Love that stuff.

Re: No Craft Beer Thread?
There's a brewery here in Dothan that's really taken off in the few short years it's been open.  Folklore Brewery and Meadery.  They've currently got 6 different high gravity beers.  Very popular in the Wiregrass area.  One really good Pale Ale.

Snags is all fancy and shoot.  He drinks Landshark in front of the plebes.  He even salts it.

Had four SixPoint Hi-Res IIIPA with the game.

10.5% each.  Delicious, if you like the style.

Two would have been plenty.

Re: No Craft Beer Thread?
This is a local brew, ( don't know if they sell it nation wide yet) good starting taste with a very hoppy finish.  A very good wheat beer for those that like them.

interesting a wheat beer is "very hoppy" much less "hoppy"

I had been hitting the Sweetwater 420's and IPA's recently and decided to switch it up.  Tried Samuel Adams Crystal Pale Ale and was very pleasantly surprised.  A good bit lighter and not nearly as full flavored or bold as the Sweetwaters.  Definite hint of citrus, possibly lemon. I believe I'll have to pour one up this evening.

Temps in upper 70's right now, throwing some deer jalapeno sausage on the grill and having a few of these.

Re: No Craft Beer Thread?
Picked up a sixer of Ballast Point's Pineapple Sculpin.

Love the original....love love the Grapefruit...sorely disappointed in the Pineapple.

The smell is amazing and sets you up for a big letdown in the taste.  Not bad...an average IPA, but the fruit flavor is flat and a little off-putting.

Maybe I expected too much based on the prior iterations of this brew, but I wouldn't waste the time/effort/money to grab this.  $16.49 a six is robbery on this one.

Enjoying a Murphy's Stout on a Friday. Minus the burnt flavor of a Guiness this is still one of the best and I can only imagine what the real deal is like on tap. And for the authentic black and tan I have it on good authority that it's a Harp Lager and a Murphy's just so you know. Now kiss my ass.

Re: No Craft Beer Thread?
One of my favs as an all around brew is Anchor Steam. It is top flight and the best bet to be a hit at any gathering among those that are accustomed to the mega brewed swill. It's a 5.6 with all the qualities of a solid beer for leisure or thirst and a goto at jmar's.

The UK are extremely heavy on roasted malt in their beers. Especially Scotland. Suck it up buttercup.

FYI - Black and Tan is an American invention. Just like how we "celebrate" st Patrick's day by getting drunk, listening to drop kick murphys, wearing green and acting like idiots.
