I know and enjoy all types of beer but you would never catch me dead extolling the virtues of spices, hops and wheat. Don't even get me started on the nonsense they market as session IPA lol.
After a couple of beers I always switch to vodka rocks and am glad to pay whatever for one of my favorites but again you won't find me gushing over how many times distilled and what bs fresh mountain spring provided the water.
Now get off my lawn!

Well this one is delicious and highly recommended for the IPA fans in the house. A tasty 7.0% to boot.

In this order-Bud light, Fourpeaks or the occasional other micro brew. Rarely wine (headache!), even more rare, liquor (I hate forgetting ).

So many good brews, too many choices, so little time. really, too many choices. Find a good one, or two or three, and stick with it or them. This afternoon I've been drinking Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA. When I want something not quite so, um, heavy I often go for DFH 60Min IPA. I haven't had any hard liquor in ages. Maybe I'm missing something.

I'm currently enjoying Threadless by Finch's Beer Co but I love IPAs in general. Misty Mountain IPA by Back East Brewing, Sea-Hag by New England Brewing, Cranky by Stony Creek Brewing, Anti-Hero by Revolution, anything by Baxter. I currently have a six-pack of Bengal by Sixpoint waiting in the fridge.

Try the 120 minute. Very good- but be careful.

Huh. Pretty close. One of those is within walking distance. Maybe we'll catch each other out sometime.

Very nice. I've been enjoying the recent boon in CT breweries, although it's made it difficult to remain without a beer gut.

I have no idea what you're talking about...

OEC and Kent Falls are other good up-and-comers. Cheers.

Newer Distillery in North East Minneapolis. Been there a few times already now.



My favorite drink I've had so far. The Residency; gin, their sour cherry liqueur, lemon, basil.

I had this one this weekend. An awesome IPA. But I hardly buy beer anymore. Brewing my own:

That's in the Thorp building, right?

My sister works down the hall in a leather-work shop, which is also down the hall from Handsome Cycles.

She's told me that Greg Lemond's got some sort of bike trainer company in the building too. Cool place to hang out.

Yep, same building. It's actually got a cool history as that building manufactured equipment for WWII and guard towers overlooking the site still sort of exist.

Tattersall is great though. Especially if you enjoy gin.

Are You Over the Age of 21? | Free State Brewing Company
Scooped up a six of Free State's "Dirty Kanza" brew. It's named after, and brewed to spec, for the premiere Gravel Grinder bicycle race in my part of the state. Looking forward to popping one, as I missed out on last years run (it's a limited run, so I'm told).

my 'recovery' drink is a Manhattan.

Rittenhouse rye, a dribble of sweet vermouth, a dash of bitters, and a couple of dried sour cherries.

Campari and soda.

If a guy runs out, move to a Surly Todd the Axe Man, Ten or Furious.

Trust me.

My cousin is a Brewer at Surly, unfortunately it's not distributed in New Jersey, so happy to have a relative inhouse...very delicious.

Two of my favorites tonight

Surly has one of the best beer gardens this side of the Atlantic.

Super fun and great food.

...and it's just off the bike path that leads back to St. Paul.

Next time you are in town, it's on me.
