    @RK50065 Hop Butcher just released an IPA collaboration with Perennial.  It's called Thoroughly New and I think Perennial released it last year, so you may have had it.  They're releasing this one as well.  In any case, I know you have some interest in HB so figured I'd pass it on.

    Some good breweries. I normally stick to Maui Brewing or Kona when I'm out here. Kona has an Islands only series that isn't distributed. I stick to that. Be here for a while, but gonna try and ship some. If I can, ill hook you up with a few.

    Thanks for the heads up! I'll look for it!

    Canned 1 week ago. Can't get much fresher than that.

    A Chicago brewery I don’t frequently get, but should mix them in more often. They brew outstanding IPAs.

    Hopefully that finds it way up to Milwaukee!

    I wish I was a sacrifice, but somehow still lived on.

    I don't believe they distribute outside of Chicagoland, but if that changes and it makes it up north, I'd highly recommend giving it a try.

    Couple good ones I’ve had recently from Bearded Iris in Nashville.

    That's a really good beer.  Saint Errant makes some great hazy IPAs.  They've been doing some fruited sours lately that have been very good as well.

    Bourbon County anniversary was fantastic.  I heard the birthday is top notch as well.  Nice to see them with a couple variants that are just straight up BA stouts not full of adjuncts.



  • bbiggsbbiggs Posts: 5,850
    ^ I was happy to see them go with some straight forward BA stouts as well, but unfortunately I wasn’t able to get Anniversary or Birthday which were highest on my list.  Looks delicious. It sucks the way Binnys did a lottery this year. I did win the Prop Day lottery but they left those bottles out. I’m intrigued by the mystery beer in the prop day allocation but haven’t cracked it yet.

    Yeah I got lucky with the Binny's lottery so was able to get 1 of each of the variants.  Went on a bit of a hunt black friday and got 2 more bottles of anniversary, another Prop and #4.  It really sucks with covid not being able to go to bars for bourbon county tastings where you can try all the variants.  Hopefully there will be a lot of that in the spring/summer as things start improving.

    That’s awesome. Nice to get a few anniversaries and a birthday. I was in TN so it was Binnys or bust for me with variants. I totally agree about Covid messing up tastings at bars. It sucks. Im very much looking forward to making up for lost time in Spring/Summer hopefully.
