    Don't Mess With...

I live with my parents while going to college locally, my dad is into craft beer so he buys a lot of it. I also live between chicago and milwaukee and have access to a huge selection. I generally only buy singles which is way cheaper than 6 packs of each beer. I also have beer loving friends that share, or for instance if I am at a brewpub or bar I will always order samplers. And it is safe to say I spend all of my money on beer, though I am gonna graduate soon and will have to cut waaaaaaaaay back.

Just get a decent paying job (I know, easier said than done). My craft beer consumption went up when I got a real job, since I could afford to drink good stuff. Then I got into homebrewing. So not only was I drinking my beer, I had to drink different craft beers to find different styles I liked. There's always a keg of homebrew and various craft beers in my house. Rough life...

If you want an American lager but don't want a BMC product, go with Kona's Longboard. No adjuncts and perfect on a warm day.

The demon code prevents me from declining a rock-off challenge.

Had Hopslam at the Lewis Black show in Michigan Theater. I really really really liked it. That flavor is unmistakable. A+++ in my book Posted Image

I prefer new glarus two women lager to kona, i found kona to be rather crappy despite no use of adjuncts.

get it soon, the flavor is already probably faded more than it should be, it is one of those beers you have to consume within a month of bottling or it starts to go downhill.

Molson Canadian is now the official beer of the NHL. Probably the most obvious choice.

It's the official beer of Wings games for me. Posted Image

Review for SA Boston Ale -

A: Pours a brown-amber color, very nice head that leaves plenty of lacing

S: A good combination of sweet malt, yeast and hops. Not overpowering, but a very pleasant aroma.

T: Tastes of caramel malts with a bit of a hoppy and dry finish. Very well balanced.

M: Very good mouthfeel, medium feel. Similar to Boston Lager.

D: Good drinkability. Not the beer to slam back, but to be enjoyed, and more than one can easily be had

My beer goes like this:

1) Do I have money? - Yes - Blue Moon or Shock Top.
- No - PBR or Natural Light.

I'm also new to the drinking game, so please don't judge :)

PBR is great whether you have money or not, especially on tap. Get that Natty Light out of here, though.

Taking a couple of friends to Founder's on Saturday. I rarely go because I prefer other places in town, but I'm excited to see what they have on tap now. Maybe I'll fill my growler so I can enjoy flat beer on Sunday.

Posted Image Definitely. I love the breweries around here. Definitely an underrated part of Michigan. The craft selections and tastes are second to none.

This. I believe its one of the worst rated beers in existence.

In spirit of St. Patty's I have been partaking in some Harp. It is made by Guiness and quite good. Finishes real clean and one of my favorites. Posted Image

There are few brews from Samuel Adams that I haven't tried, but among them are Cream Stout and Honey Porter, which I intend on remedying soon.

Thinking we need a GTG @ Rochester Mills or another local brewery during a Wings game
