    Never been to SCB. If you are planning on going downtown (old Vegas) at all there is the Brewery in Main St. Station I was in years ago. Beer wasn't to bad as far as I can recall :lol: , looks like it's still there.

    That was still there in October. I usually spend some time in the Fremont area. There is one out on Rainbow and Desert or a block north of there in a little strip mall that was not too bad. Seahawky kinda. By kinda, they are kinda in competition with the Seahawks Bar Scooters. For an off season day...probably not a great idea to go to scooters.

    If all else fails, there's a huge brew-pup in the bottom floor of Monte Carlo with at least a hundred brews on tap. That should keep you busy for a minute or two.

    Hey Sox, when was the last time you were there? I was in that one years ago and was going to suggest it as well but I think it's no longer there unfortunately. It appears the Monte Carlo is going through an extensive remodel and being re-branded as Park MGM. Tri may want to double check this, I could be wrong.

  • Although tasty, this doesn't make my current top ten.
    Image

    I can see why some may " love it " though.

    I found it very similar to Dogfish head's "flesh and blood" (also brewed with blood orange)

  • Gilgamesh Brewery out of Salem.....I had a few of theirs on Saturday. One called Vader. Will post pics of what my buddy forced me to consume.....he he he. His uncle owns the place.
    Capitol IPA and Mamba...not too bad.
    All 3 of them under 7 ABV.


    About that orange above.....I had an orange by Leinenkugel and did not like it. The acid flavor aftertaste sucked.

  • This stuff is delicious.
    Image

    Rob, (largent 80) been trying to get me to try it but I assumed it would be the same as last seasons "beer camp", it is close but better.

    I was "ok" with the tropical beer camp but not fully impressed.
    Seems SN took that brew and "tweaked" it a bit.

    If you like a (not super bitter) IPA with a hint of "fruits ", give this one a try but hurry, it's a seasonal and won't be around for long.

    Edit:
    It settles in @ 6.7 ABV so I guy can drink 3-4 without needing an Uber, as long as he takes his time drinking them.

  • Isn't a Shandy just a fancy Zima? :lol:
    I would try their Apple Ale just for the hell of it, but they can keep their Shandys.

    The SN Double-T posted sounds like something I may try, going to look out for it this weekend.

    Based on your review I picked a 6 pack up this morning, sipping on one as I type. Even though the BU's are just a tad higher then a typically prefer, I find this beer "refreshing" for lack of a better word. Thanks for the notice on this one Pmed, I will be keeping this in the fridge for those days I don't feel like a darker choice.

    FYI - I went to the SN website to see what the BU's on it were and it is listed as a "New" Year-Round beer, not seasonal.

    To be honest, I made the assumption that it would be seasonal. Most of that type of brew is.

    Anyway, glad you liked it. I bough a 2nd 6er of it today:{)

  • If anybody wants to add me on Untappd, my username's RolandDeschain on it...my avatar will be familiar. ;)

    If any of you have to ask what Untappd is...Yes, it's spelled that way; and yes, you should install it on your phone and use it. Helps you keep track of all the beer you be drinkin'. ;)

    Keep track of "all the beer I be drinking"?

    Are you nuts?
    What if my wife saw the data?

    I doubt my phone has enough room to store that much either.

    :{)

    Actually I've heard others talk about it but have never checked it out.
    I probably should/will.

    Do they have a way to Trade beers?

    Never heard of Untappd till now, I'll check it out this afternoon.

    I recently picked up a side gig bartending at a local fledgling brewery/brew pub so I've been really fortunate to try a lot of good beers on tap from all over the NW.

    Ironhorse Double Rainbow Red IPA - We've had this on tap a couple times now and it's become one of my favorites. Always liked red ales and have been enjoying IPAs more and more over the last half a year or so. Great mix of both flavors and it comes from the same brewery that makes Irish Death. Highly recommend.

    Fort George's Suicide Squeeze IPA - A spring seasonal that was really nicely balanced between your hoppiness and fruit/citrus. Wasn't extremely complex but relatively light and refreshing as the weather warms up.

  • You're a bartender and you haven't heard of Untapped, yet you play PC games all the time?

    Jesus Christ. Well, install it and add me and start entering your brews. You just enter the beer the first time and rate it, not every time you drink it.

    I sent you a request.

    Wondering when Untappd is going to make the "I became an alcoholic because of Untappd" badge?

    That would be an awesome badge. :) Request accepted. I plan to add a good number of new things weekend after next at the Washington Brewers Festival at Marymoor Park.

  • We made our annual stop at Rogue... I highly recommend the bourbon barrel stout. Sweet, but not too sweet. Also my personal fave is their Fresh Roast. And on a side/football note, Joey Harrington and his family were at the table next to us. Nice people.

  • So, I am in Wausau area near my motel and there is a liquor store nearby that connects to the grocery store. So I wander in there with the intent of finding a beer I never had....and did find one due to some locals that were in the area. Ale Asylum makes a 12 oz Curl and I thought I had seen someone get some. But I am not about to go search the thread to find it. Trying it now......It is not too bad but maybe I did something wrong with it. I did put the sixer in my baggage and let it chill for all day yesterday and up to now...at least 24 hours and more. Probably needed to be poured into a mug or some such. I used a martini glass as that was available and I could see what may be wrong.

    By the way.....the cow beer they sell in Wisconsin is really not that bad. They have a few other ales and IPAs that are not too bad either. I suppose there is some milk in some of them. LOL. Go Hawks.
