    Some are downright looney. But you never know what people will like given a chance.
    I almost always have some at home and I always enjoy a couple of the brewery only offerings. Enough that I don’t mind shaking my head at something in my flight.

    A local selection from Taxman Brewery, their Deduction is a Belgian dubbel ale that I enjoy regularly. If I have two, I have to rush home before it hits. Can’t be driving after slamming 8% beer.

    I like many beers, But I love some domestics just because it seems everyone dislikes them. I'm a Budweiser guy at heart, but will stoop to Pabst too. I am lucky to work for guys that love more obscure and great beers. Chimay is one of my favorites, Celebrator is another, pretty much any Schwarz beer is good for me. I used to get Kostrizer dark, but it's no longer sold here, so I've turned to Das Schwarz as a fine alternative.

    I can do Guiness, Bass, etc. when in polite company. At home I revert to simple domestics. I'm not much for the Mexican beers except Pacifico which has a bit of a jasmine back which I like.

    Stout isn't usually my go-to beer of choice during the summer months, but this was on the menu and I ordered it. It's surprisingly light and very drinkable. Plus, it has an awesomely naughty name and each purchase helps restore the oyster population in the Chesapeake Bay. Flying Dog - Oyster Stout.

    You know, if it said "with shrimp" or "with lobster" I might be more interested. Not an oyster fan. Can you smell or taste the oysters?

    I was honestly shocked when I learned what that phrase/saying/name actually meant. I've lived a sheltered life.

    Bodia recently made a trip to the PRS factory and he was kind enough to bring me some beer, cigars and other goodies (Hell of a guy!). One of the beers he brought was Two Brothers - Atom Smasher. For me, this is a damn near perfect beer, it's well balanced and full flavored. Two thumbs up!

    I'm all over the place with beers. Frankly, I don't care for the microbrew stuff much, too hoppy in most cases and bitter in others. I won't drink beer for the sake of the label, but that's cheap me. On a daily basis, I'm a Budweiser guy or in famine times (4 days till payday ;-)) a Pabst drinker. Now my bosses, the brothers are con-o-sewers. They travel a lot and bring me back at least a bottle of what ever they encountered, or a six pack sometimes. They last week returned from Czech Republic and Poland to visit ancestral towns and where their relatives died in camps. Pilsner Urquell is fine beer, he bought it locally but said it's exactly the same beer with an English language label here. The other one brought me a single bottle of Kozel from Poland, it too was beautiful but only at "cave" temperature, basically cold but not American cold, another delicious brew.
    I'm a strong leaner toward Kostritzer black or Schwarz beer, something about the coffee and chocolate tastes intrigue me, and also get me mighty fine feeling. Unfortunately my PRS McCarty took on a bit of "Budweiseritis" to the lower bout that cost me 75 bucks to get repaired...;-) Right in the scrape binding... luckily, I've got a fine tech...;-) I even gave him a Kostritzer after I paid him!!...

    My new local favourite is 2nd Wedge. They are cycling distance from my house (about 30km mostly on nice country roads). They brew 4 year round beers and always have 4 seasonal. My daughter and I tasted them all and brought our three favourites home. Rain Maker was number one for me - dark and stormy but still smooth.

    Good thing I'm doing sober October. Ahhh!!!!

    Here are a few I've enjoyed recently.

    These first 2 are from Treehouse in Massachusetts. A friend was out there and brought these back. If you're in the Boston area check this place out.

    This is from Modist here in Minneapolis. It's a bit different batch to batch, but when Dreamyard is on its amazing.

    Glad you like it! It is one of my favorites this time of year. Next time you roll through Chicago you need to make a trip to their brewery. They have great grub in their pub room, too.

    Putting together a plan for me and a buddy to come over to the US for a beer pilgrimage in 2020.

    Will be hitting the West Coast, Vermont etc.

    Hmm maybe I should try and time it with XPRS if it's on that year...
