  • I figured since this has kinda turned into the drinking thread here are a few local brews I am enjoying.


    The Founders Breakfast stout is one of my favorites.  I have a case from a few years ago aging.

    Heard good things about the M-43...
    Kinda reminds me of Bell's Oberon before it was mass-produced - I know Oberon is a wheat ale and this is an IPA but this still has that home-made feel to it.

    M-43 is good for a New England style IPA.  I'm a mug club member at the brewery. It's kinda pricey at $14.99 for a four pack of 16oz cans.  It's way cheaper for me to have pints at the brewery.

    And I did end up adopting a baby rhino anyway. This is Nandi who is currently at the Fundimvelo Thula Thula rhino orphanage in South Africa after her mom was poached. Hoping my small donation eventually allows her to grow up strong enough to be reintroduced in to the wild.
    My favorite animals!

    That's what I'm saying, the whole line of Michters is great! The higher marques are hard finds though. They have a 25yr this year.  Too rich for my blood though!

    Happy hunting! Proud I have a couple before the list came out including the EC Barrel Proof. 

    Take note everyone: no Pappy in the top 10. Probably won't make the 20 either. Save your money.

    The real question is...should it be?

    Wow, congrats. I got shut out, but can’t really complain after winning the Stagg a few weeks ago.

    Anyone have an opinion of the Makers Private Select Barrel? Came across a 2016 bottle.

    Every barrel is custom made with pretty much endless possibilities, so you would have to find out which staves the store you’re buying it off of got. Here is a read up on it. 

    Beginning as fully matured Maker’s Mark® at cask strength, expressions of Private Select are created by adding 10 custom finishing staves to each barrel and finishing them in our limestone cellar to extract more flavor. The 10 finishing staves can be any combination of five flavor profiles chosen especially for this program. With 1,001 possible stave combinations, each expression of Private Select has a customized finish and taste profile that is unique, yet undeniably Maker's®.

    Yep! Here in PA our State Store has a batch of it that I want to try soooooo bad, but I just can’t afford the $80.

    Blantons has been extremely hard to find lately in the Chicago area. I found a local store today that tells me they have it for $60 over the phone. I go to pick it up...$90! WTF. I passed on it out of principle. What are most of you paying for it these days?
