Not really "craft" I don't think but found this one at teh Kroger in Auburn....

Tap Room 21 - Copper.

I will be going back to this well again. Super good. I'm big on a rich, Amber lager and this one hits the spot. Smooth as hell. Great taste. Nothing fancy just good. Not water but not heavy either. Reminded me a little of a few of the German lagers like st Pauli girl but also like Smithwicks on the red/Amber side.

The UK are extremely heavy on roasted malt in their beers. Especially Scotland. Suck it up buttercup.

FYI - Black and Tan is an American invention. Just like how we "celebrate" st Patrick's day by getting drunk, listening to drop kick murphys, wearing green and acting like idiots.
I can't ever recall celebrating St. Patty's and I'm 4/10's Irish. And I like the burnt malt. Just not all of the time. I got my b&t info from a native of Edinburgh. Maybe he was just yanking my chain.

Yeah I think he was. It's very "American" and most of them even make fun of it.

Jumbo must have deleted his post as I recall that he liked Good People's Bearded Lady which is what I'm currently drinking alternately with a Lazy Magnolia So. Pecan Nut Brown while smoking a butt. Both pretty good beers although Bearded Lady has been discontinued due to the unavailability of the hops...something about a mega brewery buying them all up.

I do not understand people's fascination with IPA. Why would anyone voluntarily sign up to drink something engineered to taste like ass milk? Do you enjoy punishing yourself? Do you wear a cilice too?

I prefer the bitter notes to those sweeter/malty-er brews.

Soooo, in closing: Fuck you.

You can keep a wooden stake in your trunk
On the off-chance that the fairy tales ain't bunk
And Imma keep a bottle of that funk
To get motel parking lot, balcony crunk.

Just purchased a six'r of 420 IPA last night.  A couple of frosty mugs went perfect with the low country boil.

Just happy we have unrestricted choices in styles. My favorite IPA is Bell's Two Hearted Ale. And I enjoy the Double IPA's too although I'm of the opinion that it ceases to be beer once the alcohol is so prevalent.       

Other dislikes:
Thin beers and adjunct beers.
Our forefather's knew what sugars and fruit worked for each region. The hops, types of malt and yeast strains were limited. And if ie. cranberries were so fucking great (beyond being a good antioxidant) they would have fermented and drank a truckload of it.
The best way to counteract these defects is to try them on draft...far better results and enjoyment. Abita Purple Haze is a nothing beer from a bottle but on draft it's quite refreshing. Same goes for numerous others.

GH seems to be coming up with some good finds and I'm taking notes. That said...I will take a tall shot of most anything on tap before I order a pint. Cheers!

They aren't typically my thing either but I can appreciate a well made one.

Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Avondale Pachyderm has been discontinued because a mega brewery has a deal to buy all the hops for the next 5 years  :facepalm: #rip

Just polished 2 Sweetwater IPA's while taking an hour to catch some rays and tan the flab.

Got a 5 lb. beef tenderloin chilling in a bourbon and brown sugar marinade.  After a 7 hour soak, it'll go on the Big Green Egg while Scalloped Parmesan New Potatoes bake in the oven.  There may be another IPA or 3 consumed during cooking.
