I've never met a good IPA. Or a good pilsner now that I'm thinking about it. I hang out in the Stout and ale part of town, and occasionally swing up for an import lager (Asahi!) or an amber.

You know, I should probably try that one. I had Founders Devil Dancer IPA, and that was good (but too expensive to get again unless I see it on tap somewhere).

I've been drinking a lot of Asahi's stout, which they call Asahi Black. Anything that brewery puts out I'll drink. Guinness is the granddaddy, and there's a local brewery back home that does a Tatonka Stout that kicks all sorts of ass.

After drinking a World Wide Stout, I can't really go back to Guinness. Or pretty much any other stout.

I'm really not a fan of Guinness. If I have to drink a stout/porter manufactured in the UK (and that comes to the Midwest), I'd probably go for Fullers Porter.

OK, from the "there's a first time for everything" department. 

After a year and a half working here, I dropped my first case of beer.  Leinenkugel's summer shandy, bottles.  I think two of them survived.  Fortunately, the case held so there wasn't glass everywhere, and I mopped out the cooler, but I got so much of it on me running it out the back door...

I smell delicious. 


Well, my jeans do.

See, I never understood why people see the word "bitter" is inherently negative. I mean, at least most people do. I'll drink my iced coffee black and people go "isn't that bitter?" and I respond with "...yeah, bitter is tasty". I think that's why I like IPAs. If you like bitterness, then you can actually taste the other things about it rather than just stopping at "this is bitter".

I don't mind bitter (I also drink my coffee black), but I mind it when it's overpowering, like it's been in most of the IPAs I've tried.

I find IPA's too bitter, as well.  But then, there's apparently a genetic link to the appreciation of bitter tastes. 

So it's not our/your fault.

Its also an acquired taste. Most people don't just dive into IPA's and enjoy them, hell most people don't like beer when they first try it.

Even Guinness Draught is 4.1-4.3%, and a lot of the American pisswater is below 5%. And a few states still do restrict beer that's over 3.2%.

Naah, that'll hold us for about 2 weeks.  It's the biggest seller, except when Bud has 36 packs.  See, with a 36 pack you only need to go to the beer store 3 times a week, instead of 4 times with the 30 packs. 


Many of our customers are from a couple of trailer parks and a campground that are nearby.  We also have a factory across the street, so we get a big rush at the shift change...

Oh, I went to the Dogfish Head Brewpub last weekend and tried two beers for the first time, one really good (Burton Baton), and one really not (75 Minute IPA)  The latter was probably the biggest beer disappointment I've ever had, in regards to expectations to actual taste.

Bourbon County Stout by Goose Island. An imperial stout that's been aged in bourbon barrels. It's 14.2% alcohol. This beer is intense, but I loved it.

I'm fairly new to craft beer, but I have found that I quite enjoy Delirium Tremens and Ommegang Three Philosophers-- as well as the classic Duvel. Guess I enjoy Belgian styles. Also, I know Hoegaarden gets talked down quite a bit, but I think it's pretty good for how widely available it is.

"Good evening, Beer Barn." 

"Hi, do you have Molson's?"

"Sure, what kind?"

"Golden."

"Yeah, we have some."

"How much is it?"

"$24 a case for bottles."

"You don't have cans?" 

"No, sorry, we don't stock those." 

"Oh.   


How much is your Miller Lite in cans?"
