Have the Voyager on the shelf , very flavorful with an ingredient list a mile long.
Both it and the Absinthe are made in Woodinville.

Cheap beer!

While it's not really my kind of store, Trader Joe's has "Name Tag" Lager in cans for $2.99 per 6-pack! 5% alcohol and it ain't too bad.

Reminds me of the good ol' days - buying cases of Blitz in the stubby little 12oz bottles!

Oh yeah, there is room in my life for good beer too. Like shoes and motorcycles, you need many varieties and models too be well-balanced in life.

Georgetown Brewery's Lucille growlers are heaven They're a one-for-one swap so non-Georgetown growlers are extra...man up and buy a growler, you'll be back.

Ninkasi "Total Domination IPA" is the choice for 22oz, closely followed by Elysian Brewery's Immortal IPA. (can you see a trend)

In regular bottles anything by Deschutes is a good thing, Mirror Pond Pale Ale is the bestest.

Very true, but once you get a setup sorted out and running they way you want, not as much messing around. The other cost that people forget to add in, is all the extra supplies that add up for cleaning/sanatizing/testing. I swear I spend more on starsan than I do on grain.

To keep it on topic, I just put a 110 IBU and dry hopped Cascadia Dark on tap, the other tap has my 11% winter warmer (sort of a big belgian double pumped up with some peat smoked malt and a nice alcohol bite from some candy sugar added). I need to brew this week to get something kegged for when I blow the winter beer's keg.

Little bro picked me up a bottle of Dry Fly vodka on their initial run. I don't think we've tapped into it yet. Perhaps we should

Not much of a beer fan but I do live with one. She is the vice president of Inland Brewers Unite. She publishes articles on the women of craft brewing site. She loves to brew beer and we have a three tap refrigerator that always has kegs of what ever she made attached to them. When we head out on a two wheel trip and stop for the night the first thing that is done is to search the local area for a brewery for her to try. I am the designated driver we grab a bite to eat and she tries the new brew.

Yeah..

Living in the Columbia Gorge has some perks. Hood river and Stevenson have some good brews. Walking Man in Stevenson, Double Mtn. & Full Sail in Hood River (Along with a few others ;D)

I drink just about anything... the worst being bubble mixture.. the best I would say is fron Henry's Tavern in downtown portland. Belgium fruit beer is like juice, that gets you drunk.

Is it hard to sanitize being plastic? It would be nice to go to a conical. Hard to keep our beer at the right temperature without a temperature regulator.

Ummm, yes have tasted only the IPA from Firestone . . . . .Satisfying.

Anyone up this way (Seattle area) know where these fine CA beers(DBA,or Velvet Merlin)may reside (bar, Tav.) or ? ? ?
Sam's Club on Aurora has the best price for Firestone's Union Jack IPA @ $9 for a sixer. Everywhere else is around the $11 mark. They aslo have the DBA for about $8

The only place I know of that has it(IPA) on tap is McFinsters in Edmonds.

Hey Jim, I sure hope I can get over your way to drink your wifes beer this year.
