    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.

  • 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.

  • Been a while since I’ve tried something new worth posting about.

    This one is worth it.
    Poured beautiful, smelled of fresh hops (citrus hops, not piney).

    Crisp, clean, no long lingering after taste to speak of.
    ImageImageImage

    The first one of these I️ tried was at about 8AM after a tough shift at work. It was amazing, and later that night when I️ had a 2nd one, still loved it.
    It’s a “one off” brew, if you’re interested, grab a 6er when you see it. They won’t be around for long.

    Cheers.

    Edit: 7.2 % ABV

  • Another first time try for me.
    Image

    This stuff is delicious.

    I get it, IPAs are not everybody’s cup of tea but this one is good.
    It’s even a double IPA, and in spite of its name it’s not a bitter “hop bomb”

    It is a spring “seasonal” so if this post spikes your interest, don’t wait to try, it won’t be around for long.
    8.0% ABV

  • Gonna try this one in a while. I am a little under the weather as it was a hot mid 50s yesterday. And I feel like garbage. There were about 3 or 4 different types of Ayinger on display at Groc Outlet but I picked this one of them.

  • I was given a bottle of Bourbon Barrel aged Pale Ale from Full Sail. If you can find it, get it. That was some delicious stuff.

    I haven't really had too much new (to me) stuff since Halloween. My bro-in-law and I got various beers to drink for the annual family pumpkin-carving gathering. 2 stood out... Dark o' the Moon pumpkin stout from Elysian (very tasty) and some stuff called Pump(KY)n from Avery.. wherever that is. That one stood out because it's 15%ABV... it about put me on my ass. For your consideration for next fall...

  • Pmed - finally tried Tank 7 that you recommended. You were not wrong. That was delicious. Also, I wish I would have noticed it was 8.5 before I decided to crack it open, but that’s ok, it was the weekend

    Other stuff I’ve tried that was really good:
    Buzzsaw McThunderjuicy IPA from Iron Goat in Spokane.
    Everything at Daft Badger Brewing in Coeur d’Alene

    I assume you had a “bomber”?
    I have noticed they started selling 4 packs of 12oz but usually it’s in the big bottle.
    Don’t know about your ETOH tolerances but I won’t drive after a bomber of anything “high octane”.

    Haven’t had a T7 in awhile, this reminds me to pick one up.
    I’ve been focused more on locals to me, and I forget about some of the others I enjoy.

  • Miller Lite with a dash of vanilla. If you haven't tried it, you haven't lived.

    lol

    I hope nobody actually tried this...I tried making a sugary mixed drink with vodka in my blender last week by just throwing random stuff in there and one of the things I put in there was vanilla. And let me tell you, vanilla does not mix with fruit...at all. It was one of those drinks where adding more alcohol actually made it taste a lot better.

    As far as beer goes...I might have to turn in my man card for this, but I've actually been drinking Michelob Ultra more recently. It's less filling and has less alcohol in it, which is perfect because half of my love for beer is just holding a bottle in my hand and taking swigs. The only downside is that it doesn't really taste that great. It's decent. But that helps me enjoy my craft beers even more when I do drink them.

  • This may have been mentioned up thread but I’ll comment because I just recently tried it.
    Image

    I was surprised twice with this brew.

    1) was quite enjoyable, has most of the qualities that I look for in a brew.

    2) had no clue that they know how to make beer in Oregon.

    Living in Texas, I’m at the mercy of the distributors, and one of “my guys” recently started stocking Full Sail’s Amber.
    I had heard rumors that FS’s IPA was decent so I asked him to get some. He got one case and had to stop a guy from buying all 4 six packs so he could save one for me.
    He told me the guy was from Oregon and was shocked to see this brew in his store.
    Anyway, it’s a good brew, I’d buy it again, and will be expecting “my guy” to order more.

    A friend of mines uncle owns Gilgamesh Brewery outside of Salem Oregon. They have a few that are not too bad. Mamba is pretty decent.

  • Went to Hood River last weekend. Went to Full Sail, Double Mountain, and Pfriem. Then drove over the river and went to Everybody's Brewing, Backwoods, and Walking Man. The weather was great, all of the beers were awesome, and best of all - the nachos at Everybody's Brewing are always the best part of the trip - worth the drive alone.

    That’s an awesome way to spend a day.


    I’m jealous.

    Good for you:{)


    And hopefully everyone knows, I was just bustin’ balls with my comments about Oregonians making beer.

    Is there a bag limit on Stouts?? Where do they herd up? Are they in the rut? I am not getting an out of state permit for them.
