To be honest craft brewing has always been on the rise in popularity and it's becoming even more popular in the recent years. Even 7-11 is catching on. The one near me stocks plenty of Sierra Nevada, some Stone, and a few others.


yeah, the Save Mart here in town has an end cap fridge full of craft brews

i'm the best mayne, i deed it

^ double Indian Pale Ale which usually have alcohol content above 7% by volume & it tastes VERY HOPPY and BITTER. We had to drink it down with the bite of chili fries and burgers lolol.

im thinking of trying Duvel next time :D It has over 9% alcohol content

Good fucking choice.

I couldn't stand beer until I tried Sierra. one and a half Torpedoes and I'm talking shit to EVERYONE. The friendly kind of shit talk though. smokeyface

If no one's mentioned it yet try Old Foghorn. Nowhere near as stout/bitter as Torpedo. Smooth citrus wash that leaves a pine aftertaste. Or something like that.



There's another one that my beer connoisseur friend has me hooked on, I'll throw it up later.

The perfect beer. Not to light that it tastes like piss, not too dark that it tastes like rubber, but instead it's a sweet, smooth, refreshing taste.

Leinenkugel Sunset Wheat, baby.

So over the weekend the gf wanted to hang out and do something rather than the usual. I found this as a perfect opportunity to visit Russian River Brewery in Santa Rosa, Ca. I basically disguised the trip to the brewery by going out to Stinson Beach, site seeing, etc then when it was time to eat "Hey let's go to this one place I heard about..."

I tried their Blind Pig but obviously the main reason to go was for Pliny the Elder. Had a few pints there then got a 1/2 gallon growler of Pliny to go.

If you're ever in the Bay Area/Northern California and enjoy beer, I'd recommend making the trip to RR Brewery. The menu didn't have that many items on it. I believe they have sandwiches, salads, pizza, and appetizers. No huge meals or anything. The pizza I had was good but nothing amazing. You go for the experience/beer, not the food.

Had Delerium Tremens a few weeks ago. Not sure if I'm a fan or not. The initial fruity taste is great, but it generally just doesn't agree with my stomach after about 3/4 of a pint.

Leinenkugel is one of my favorite breweries here in Wisconsin. Their Sunset is alright to me. For the summertime I love their Summer Shandy. I'm usually not a fan of the taste of it, but summer in Milwaukee, that's a staple beer and everyone drinks it. Leinenkugel Classic Amber is my favorite from them. If you like the wheat from them, you should try to find Blue Moon, their Wheat Ale.

Yeah. Blue Moon is a classic. It's a bit over done now and really popular (at least on the West coast). I switched to Leinie's. I would like to thank Milwaukee for such a wonderful present that has been given to the world.

Fuck Beer
Hard Liquor all the way
It does what beer does but more efficiently and without the added pounds

Leinenkugel Summer Shandy is pretty damn good. I've had it once and its nice and refreshing. Not a typical beer, but really enjoyable on a hot day

I thought this was pretty dope considering I go backpacking a couple times a year u in the Sierra Nevada. It's one of my favorite places in the whole world. Might pick up a few seasonals to show support.

I wanna try these craft beers reading this thread was really interesting. For a begginer what beers are the best to try out. Like what different types to see which category or types are my favorites. Also in what type of places can i find these beers? Im in Miami i'm sure i can find the places to get them just asking where i should look.

The Bruery in Placentia is a nice chill spot. I think they're open Thursday through Saturday, but cannot be sure.

$8 gets you six tastings and a glass.
