    Yeah I think I've come to the decision that Maine Beer is my hands down #1 brewery.

    Ever been to Bissell Brothers Brewing? How do they compare? I’m gonna be up there in late June and will probably hit up both breweries. Heard really good things about Bissell Bros.

    The handful of beers I've had from them have all been great.  Lunch is a great beer.  Really want to try Dinner by them but that's just about impossible to find around here being so far away...

    Lot of good beers yesterday at the Bier Stein Invitational. The great part about this festival is all the beers are special runs. One that stood out the most is from one of my favorite breweries, Boneyard, Mr Centaur Quad a 13% IPA that was rather smooth and easy to drink.

    Ha, I'm sure they don't distribute all of their beer from NE over to Wisconsin. :)

    Is it just me, or there a lot of these "juicy" IPAs popping up from a lot of breweries right now?  Maybe I never noticed it in the past.

    Juicy, hazy, new england, blah blah blah.  I am convinced at this point that brewers aren't even making new beer.  They're just recycling old recipes & rebranding with new names, bottles, & cans to fit current trends.  It's all the checklisters' faults.

    You aren't too far off.  To make it now you have to keep on making something new, lol!

    No kidding.  It does get to be pretty redundant when you do beer flights at breweries.  Pilsner, Porter, Pale, India Pale, Amber, Stout.  Not a lot of difference sometimes, so more seem to be going outside of the box.

    Literally every week in the case of Chicago’s most “it” brewery right now; Hop Butcher. Throw some new artwork on the can, blow out social media to hype it and BOOM...everyone is mind blown!  Don’t get me wrong. Their beer is a notch above the rest.  But if I was blind-folded for a tasting of their last several DIPAs, I’d have a tough time differentiating between them. They’re all good!

    In regards to everything being “juicy,” I’m personally getting a little tired of it.  I like it. Just not every single time.

    Beer has plateaued.

    It's nice that we get to drink good beer now and there is also a reason why Belgium has the best beer in the world and still does recipes that are hundreds of years old.

    One of the best beers I've ever had was a porter/barleywine from a former monastery in Prague.  I'm pretty sure that recipe didn't change much over all of those years.
