    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
    I
     know what you mean. I am quite lucky in that there are a couple of really good bottle shops near me and they do get good beers from all round the world but a lot of the stuff posted here I will never really get the chance to try. I get jealous everytime someone mentions zombie dust :bawling:

    in case anyone here is planning on coming to Toronto this September Bellwoods brewery is having their Witchstock 2018.  great craft beers from all over the world.

    I am looking forward to trying Other Half.  i have heard nothing but good things about them. 

    here are some of the other brewers coming.


    Other half is my favorite brewery. So much so that I keep track of there beers I’ve tried on my phone and I’m at 97 unique beers right now. I’ll hit 100 this weekend when I visit the brewery again (I go once a month). Hope you enjoy!

    This thread can’t be on the second page. Another very good beer by Hop Butcher. I’m really digging their beers.

    They are so good.....all of their beers are top notch.  Hopefully they get their own brewery with a taproom at some point.  Them and Mikerphone are my 2 favorite breweries in Chicago right now...

    ^ Im really eager to get to Mikerphone based on your recommendation and others as well. I hear nothing but great things. I might stop in for one next Saturday before I head to Wrigley. Noon Whistle is near the top of my list too for local brews.

    I just read Bells and Founders were named the top two breweries in a recent poll. Both MI breweries. Also, Bells Two Hearted was named the best beer overall. I’d have to agree they’re two damn good breweries.

    No arguments here.  Two Hearted and All Day are two IPA's I could drink on a consistent basis.  I recently had Founders Rubaeus on nitro and it was incredible. I've had it in the can before but the nitro pour really smoothed it out and made it like dessert.

    Having a "Space Force Pale Ale" at the local brewery. At least I know this space force was a success :lol:
    It's a hopeless situation...
