Default The New Beer Thread

Yuengling Lager Light is my go to brew but stopped at my local Wegmans yesterday and picked 12 off-the-beaten-path (for me) brews. Sitting on my patio enjoying the first one now and realized we need a Tried A New Beer thread here.

Right now having an "In-Heat Wheat" hefeweizen, from Flying Dog Brewery, Frederick, MD. Good to very good . Added to my Buy Again list.


Post 'em up.

Have been enjoying Magic Hat #9 for the last 2 years. Also Heavy Seas Loose Cannon. Guinness Black Lager is nice. While in Ireland last year I also enjoyed Smithwicks ("Smitticks").

Had a Loose Cannon last Friday and liked it

Smitticks is one of my top choices, one of my happy hour places has it on draught.

Got a case each of Sam Adams Boston and Winter Seasonal and we're enjoying them quite a bit. For mass produced they're very good imho.

The largest American owned brewery, and they do produce some awesome beer! It's always my go to beer when in a bar with limited selection.

All of the above sound good. I've been into the local breweries lately. Pensacola Bay Brewery Little Napoleon IPA. Monkeynaut IPA out of Birmingham, Al. So many choices these days...
