    I just got a bottle of calabaza blanca.  Didn't know it was a sour.
    SOUR should be mandated to be emblazoned on the front of a bottle
    so fools like me aren't accidentally purchasing.
    The sour is hard to find on this label.

    The sea dragon from them is now hands down my new favorite beer.  (it's the one on the left).  It is an unfiltered new england style ipa.  
    I'll ride the wave where it takes me......

    I
     didn't know it was a sour either but I really enjoyed it. I think it just made me realise that beer could be anything do long as it was well made. I enjoy the occasional sour but prefer ipas and imperial stouts.

    Could be one of the worst beers I have ever had. Had two sips and dumped it down the drain. My dad brought it over.  Ugh

    Driving in an Uber to the Foo Fighters show with some big ass plastic cups full of IPAs (big gulp style). The drivers looking at us like we’re nuts. Lol. Good times.

    That stuff is a top 5 for me, for sure. Maybe even a top 3. I may also recommend: Foggy Geezer and Salomn Pants.

    ^ It was between this and Foggy Geezer. I’ll get that one next time. Had a feeling you’d like this one, being that you’re the other 3 Floyd’s fan on this thread. ;)

    Lmao...definitely no denying that, is there? Like a lot of FFF brews, the Foggy Geezer and Lazurite do have a similar taste to one another.

    two breweries yesterday!  Four Fathers and spiteful.
    Damn near bought out four fathers.
    The worst of times..they don't phase me,
    even if I look and act really crazy.
  • bbiggsbbiggs Posts: 1,800
    ^ what did you think of spiteful? I’ve only had one of their beers. 
  • MalrothMalroth broken down chevroletPosts: 1,691
    I only had two.  Selfies are for weinies- double ipa - very good
                           Sheffield- hoppy wheat - good.

    That's

    Literally anything that they bring over. Knowing them they will make a late call on what they are taking because they are very into getting beer to places ASAP and in peak condition. They are focused on fresh juicy ipas, pales and dipas (usually in the new England style) although their barrel aged stuff is good too. Everything is unfiltered and they never (almost) rebrew the same beer. It's always variations based on the the season, yeasts and hops. Their dipas are very highly regarded over here. They were ratebeers 3rd best brewery in the world last year ibelieve. And you are correct, they're from Manchester which is my home town although I don't live there anymore.

    thanks, I wish that there were ways where people can get beer delivered from all over the world.  I get beer deliver now from some breweries in Ontario Canada but would be great to get some from everywhere
