Drink some Hofbräuhaus with KD and coach Bowden.

I saw something the other day that said Akron is closest place to watch a division 1 football game from Cleveland (duh). A lot of the alumni are there. Glad to see them marketing the area and would like to see more of it from UA in general. I hate when I go to an Indians game and see Toledo advertising.

Don't buy this beer. I have 5 of them left in my refrigerator and don't know how I will suffer through them. Squeeze watermelon rind juice in a Fat Tire and you'll get an idea of what this nasty swill is all about.

I told you I was stockpiling stouts for tailgating, right?  In a moment of weakness, I popped the top on this one tonight.  Good Lord.  I think I'm in RIS heaven.86c5c0ad76fe2c79c9447974c160728a_640x640

Nobody posts in this thread anymore, but if anyone still reads it, I have some fantastic news.  El Lupulo Libre hit the stores in bombers today.  $6.99!

Entering a craft pilsner phase and I can definitely recommend giving Gringolandia Super Pils a try (by 5 Rabbits Brewery in Chicago).

 

Lagunitas Pils, not so much.

I visited my nephew and his wife in Munster IN over the weekend and he took me to a local brewery called 3 Floyds and I had an Arctic Panzer Wolf Pilsner that was freakin' awesome, plus high % content and I got buzzed on just 2!

I go to Ray's Place a lot in the summer, but never in the winter. I know they had some sort of IPA 3 Flyods on tap this summer. I'm not an IPA fan, so it went in one ear, and out the other. They did have Old Speckled Hen on tap this summer. Probably my favorite english ale. 

 

This Ray's list says it was updated 1/1/18, but I know they get new things weekly.

Hey there Doc...I found myself in Munster IN last night on business and found the 3 Floyds Brewhouse.  Wow!  Rather strange place but had a blast.  Obscure music all on vinyl, some decent pub food, and best of all some great beers.  First went with the Behemoth, a delightful Barley Wine with lots of hops and a caramel taste, pretty strong %.  Then went to a Yum Yum,  a solid paleale, and finished off the evening with a Lazersnake.  Hotel was half a mile away so the drive back was mercifully short.

Had a "Naughty or Nice" Christmas Ale on tap at a bar in Twinsburg a couple nights ago. I thought it was outstanding. It had the viscosity and body of Great Lakes, but much more spice-forward.

Still looking for a gift for that discriminating beer drinker on your list?

 

Had this 2 nights ago. Maybe the best barrel-aged beer I've had to-date.

I'm not much of a beer expert, but I know what I like when I taste it.  If you are in the Carolinas for whatever reason, Foothills is popular with those who like craft beer. Www.foothillsbrewing.com/

Well some of us might have gone to the Carolinas next month....

 

I guess there's always Myrtle Beach ?️

Stay clear of South Carolina breweries. I've never had one I liked. Charleston is one of the great food cities in the world and I think as good as the food is, the breweries are that bad. 

 

Myrtle Beach?  That's where you go to drink 30 Coors Lights per day. It's about time for those of us who live here to start our off season visits.

Although I hated to miss the spring game, I had a really nice beer trek while on vacation in Florida.

First place I went was Total Wine and they had an unbelieveable selection of singles, which I promptly made 3 sixers from. I was a little disappointed there weren't more Florida brews available, but there were quite a few labels I have never seen in Ohio, so it was nice. This store is huge. Picture a supermarket full of wine and beer, ONLY. Pretty cool.

The second place I was lucky enough to visit was Mr. Beery's "a craft beer bar". I took advantage of the Monday Happy Hour Special. 3-8 P.M. All you can drink unlimited drafts for 10 bucks. Amazing!

The third place was World of Beer. I wish I could have spent more time here, as it was a great experience. The bartenders are more like your own personal beer consultants. They ask a lot of questions and make suggestions. They advertised over 500 kinds of bottled beer. I didn't count them, but they did have a lot.

I also got to sample some other various treats at restaurants, but these were the big 3 experiences.

Now for the list from worst to first...(with the beer advocate links if any sound interesting)

"Would not try again."

Holy Mackerel Mack in Black

Widmer Brothers Pitch Black IPA

Blue Point Blueberry Ale

Leavenworth Boulder Bend Dunkelweizen

Full Sail Session Black Lager

Fort Collins Chocolate Stout

Ballast Point Barmy Ale

Brooklyn Mary's Maple Porter

"Solid. Would have another."

Spaten Dunkel

Anchor Bock

Ballast Point Reef Rye Brown

Red Brick Laughing Skull Amber

Clown Shoes Lubrication American Black Ale

Belfast Bay McGovern's Oatmeal Stout

Lost Coast 8 Ball Stout

Terrapin Rye Pale Ale

Bell's Hell Hath No Fury Dubbel

Kona Koko Brown

Young's Double Chocolate Stout

Mad River Serious Madness Black Ale

St. Peter's Cream Stout

Cigar City Cubano Style Expresso Brown

Ipswich Original Ale

Coronado Idiot IPA

Highland Black Mocha Stout

Cigar City Ligero Black Lager

Blue Point Hoptical Illusion IPA

Terrapin Hopsecutioner IPA

Oskar Blues Old Chub Scotch Ale

Terrapin Moo-Hoo Milk Stout

"Deeeeeeeee-licious!"

Red Brick Porter

Ballast Point Sculpin IPA

Cigar City Jai Alai IPA

Cigar City Maduro Brown

I am sure some of these may be available in Ohio, but all were new tries for me.

Cigar City is in Tampa and was the most widely available craft beer where I was in Sarasota.

I was told to avoid the Sarasota Brewing pub, so I skipped that.

The one thing I was looking the most forward to finding was The Funky Buddah's Maple Bacon Porter, but they didn't distribute to the Gulf Coast. :(

 

A good Florida IPA I found (recently) on tap at Chili's near Gainesville. Probably only available in that area. Hoppy but not as extreme as most IPA's.
