Had it at the cloudwater tap at the weekend. Very tasty.

Wish they would get their non-hoppy beers in the same league. Not sure any of their sours have been good. Some of the imp stouts are decent

yeah I've never been particularly impressed by cloudwater outside of the hoppy stuff. I've been p unimpressed by most of their beers so far this year but their recent low abv and ddh beers pulled me back in. enjoyed v3.1 too.

They need a solid core range! Most of their beers taste so similar so why not perfect a few and keep putting out specials along side

yeah I think the whole 'seasonal' beer thing worked initially but it's seemingly just turned into them pumping out sub-par sours/stouts/helles/ipl's book-ended by some very good mid-abv ipa's and dipa's

They just have very good marketing and a few exceptional beers. Pretty sure everyone in Manchester thinks the main cloudwater dude is a knob.

I really like Chorlton brewery. Track too. Some really decent Manchester beer about.

Where are you from?

yeah chorlton are a perennial fave. real good bretted ipa's.

I'm from birmingham but I've spent a lot of time in newcastle so I'm familiar with a lot of the pubs/breweries up there. wylam are doing great things imo.

at the minute burning soul and glass house are pumping out decent beers in brum. feels like we're slowly catching up with the rest of the country.

A bit disappointed with the new HPB coconut hazy, probably because of how much I loved Hyperload. I guess the green tea did a lot more for that beer than I realized.

Outside In is pretty good, I’ll probably let the cans sit for a few weeks.

I would say this of pils generally this time of year.

Also, started seeing schlenkerla helles in tallboy 4pks at my local bottle shop, apparently canned stateside.

Had some of the Schlenkerla Helles last weekend. Even though no smoked malts are used, there’s still a pretty strong rauchcbier character. Still really refreshing, but not as clean as I usually prefer for a helles

the new modern times helles from portland is $12 a four pack. still a bit spendy, but considering how much other modern times special releases tend to cost, i can live with that and still be excited to try the beer.

I would love to find it on draft; finding fresh bottles around here is rare, but it barely matters. I've picked up sixers that had been on shelves for 6 months and it still tastes amazing.

but how much is it? always thought one of the best parts of alchemist was the pricing. bought a mixed case for $75 when i went there. doubt anything is being sold in LA at the $3 a can price point.

Brouwerij West is consistently so good with the hazy IPAs - I just had their most recent releases of Ask the Dust and Tahiti Substation, both were excellent. Supercollider remains a favorite in the style. And they seem to be getting improved distribution, I saw them in a tiny little liquor store in Santa Barbara County last week - usually nothing good but some of the better Firestone beers can be found around SB

Yeah friend of mine brought a couple Growlers back of their Pilsner and some other things and I wouldn't stop drinking them if they were closer.

There aren’t any amazing breweries really, Third Window is probably your best bet. Or drive the 35 minutes to Ventura and go to Casa Agria and Madewest :)

Llama Dog has a solid selection of beers on tap + two beer fridges, but it is a really popular spot, especially on the weekends
