I 100% love a DBA any time of year. Maybe not a whole six pack on a hot summer's day, but once it's cool out in the evening give me some malty, nutty, slightly hoppy goodness any day.


ok, well make the mixed 12ers seasonal then and give me DBA in the winter. Cause its 101 degrees here in LA and I have no desire for a DBA. especially the nitro DBA they are including in the packs.

Not blind but some friends and I did Hill Mary vs Suarez Palatine last week. I think they were both canned within a week of each other.

The biggest thing that stood out to me was that Mary seemed considerably hoppier (weirdly enough, almost danker) when placed alongside Palatine in a way I never really noticed at all on other occasions I've had it. For that reason I kind of leaned towards Palatine strictly on flavor, but the thing Mary did have going for it was the better and fuller mouthfeel.

For fans of HPB’s west coast IPAs, Radio Hill hit the spot along with their fish sandwich for me today. I’d recommend drinking it on tap as fresh as possible, it smells fucking fantastic right now.

having a dry hopped 'session lager' from Stillwater and it's ok I guess but for fuck's sake does a lager really need to get any more sessionable than a pilsner already is?

not saying every craft lager has to be a classic pils but pils is by definition somewhere in the 4.5-5.5% abv range and you're not making this $10 four pack any more crushable by slimming it down to 4.2%. I was doing just fine slamming bohemia all these years at 4.7%.

the session modifier is a bullshit idea imo.

Excited to grab my first 6-pack of Weihenstephaner Festbier for the year. I've been anticipating the Sierra collab too, but it sounds like it's closer to a Märzen this year so I may just wait until it gets a bit cooler to try it.

The Sierra Oktoberfest collabs always end up being a little sweet for my tastes, but they're still solid beers and great for the price. I do wish they'd actually drop during fall though.

I remember being jealous of all the juicy, hazy ipa's people were drinking in this thread a few years back. but now even the UK scene seems swamped by hazy ipa's. don't get me wrong I enjoy a lot of them, but I'm definitely burnt out on them and have been for a while...

I drink enough different styles regularly that I’m still not burnt out on hazies. There have been a lot of really mediocre ones showing up lately though.

I’ve been on a saison kick again lately.

Seems like a lot of breweries are trying to do the style with some mixed results. If they get them right they're hard to beat though.

I was in Milwaukee this past weekend and stopped at City Lights before a Brewers game. Their "hazy IPA" was neither hazy nor juicy. I did have one from Blue Blood (Justifiable Hopicide), brent, that wasn't too bad though. I didn't realize until after the fact that it was that brewery that was started by cops.

If not, you're at least close to Jack's Abby for non-IPAs. And even if you don't make it there, their Post Shift is all over the place and is probably the best shelf pilsner in the area (besides maybe Notch, but Post Shift is cheaper and easier to find in my experience).

I have not been to the brewery proper, but had Neon on tap at El Bait Shop. It was outstanding.
