state your beer, drinkers


Recommended Posts

do you have access to cans concealed?

I live in Hartford, CT now, so about 3 hours south of the brewery, definitely going to make a trip up there eventually, totally want to support those Alchemist guys during their tough times.

RE: Surly Five. That beer is so fucking good, my favorite beer at the last Beer Advocate Fest I was at.

Have been drinking less beer lately, nothing too noteworthy, following the paleo diet, which calls for a lot less carb intake, but I have been getting my red wine on :)

wrote a quick article on Portland, Maine's Beer Scene, feel free to check it out and spread it around if you are planning on going there, thanks.

Yeah I passed on the whiskey as well. The liquor building was our last stop after the beer and wine so all I remember is the vodka flight, which was awesome. Everything after that (they gave us a free tasting of everything else) is pretty blurry, although I'm sure it was tasty, haha.
