    I was wondering what beer inmates were drinking this weekend, I am a fairly modest drinker but like a nice pint and tonight is looking good. It took the Innis and Gunn to inspire this thread but still have the stout and dark Budweiser, the Czech version not the American one, to look forward to.:1drink

    A few weeks ago, I over-did it while throwing a beer tasting party. It wrecked me for 2 weeks. I'm finally over it, and ready go again.

    The local beer pub, The Standard Pour, has guest brewers come in the first Saturday of every month with some of their product. Tomorrow is Tioga Brewing Company out of Fresno, California. The city of Fresno really isn't known for anything innovative, and they don't make a stout as far as I can tell, but I will keep an open mind. I have seen some surprisingly good beer come from other Central Valley towns, so I have my fingers crossed...

    I have some Stone Levitation to finish off :1drink My wife picked up a six pack of Guinness Black Lager for me while at the store the other day. Said it seemed like something I’ d enjoy. Nice gesture, but it’s pretty much a “meh” brew. It’ll keep me refreshed while I work in the garage.

    Deschutes Hop Henge, probably the best IPA out there right now.

    New Belgium Rampant. You can skip it, not a fan of the hop note at all.

    If you like Hop Henge, you would also like Lagunitas Hop Stupid. Both are on my top 10 list.

    Since I kind of bad-mouthed Fresno, putting doubt on Tioga Brewing Company, I thought it was only right to come back and report their beer was good. Their IPA was decent, and their Dry Hop IPA was outstanding!

    Cheers, Fresno!

    +1 on the Hop Stupid. My favorite right now. Looking forward to trying the Hop Henge. I know Deschutes can do better than Inverison.

    Yep, but I am having the Black and Tan this weekend instead of lager. Definitely the king of cheap beer.

    Hop Slam is good stuff, but all the Yuengling talk made me homesick so I had to shift gears... :evil

    Been on a bourbon/whiskey kick lately....I didn't pick up a 18 pack of Labatt Blue for 13 bucks and I'm regretting it a bit now. That's my favorite macro by far.
