Snapshot has a nice tart citrusy taste and Citradelic by New Belgium is also good.
Big smile
 
They have several' FOLLY 12 PACKS' out right now so time to pick up a couple to sample all the different flavors.

New Belgium is pretty widely distributed and makes consistently good beers in my experience.  Haven't tried them all of course.

It was Mick, but a bit "fizzy".....had they toned that down just a little it would be a home run

We had a local beer fest at out fair grounds in town and over 40 micro brew vendors showed up....too many beers to recall but one I really liked was a vanilla blueberry porter that one of the groups made just for the event.

Yeah, they are overpriced compared to the big dogs....but I think its cool that some people will pay higher prices to get a little culture and mood with their goods.  I hope they never completely vanish.  Everything about the modern retail experience is so soulless and uninteresting...same chains, same cookie cutter storefronts no matter where you are.

We used to have quite a few;  a convenient place for basic groceries, late night booze, food and ciggie emergencies, and the occasional meat & cheese sub.   Only a handful still exist.   As you say, they have the old-school feel (and in SF, beautiful Italian tile work adorning the outside).   They are generally overpriced and often don't have one's preference but they will be sorely missed when gone, I'm sure.

yeah... we don't have those.

I agree with your sentiments however. We practice that religiously when it comes to eating out. Rarely if ever eat at chain restaurants.. mom and pop local restaurants is where it is at.Thumbs UpIf we had them here I'd sure support them

Little guys?  We don't have much in the way of little guys here in Virginia Jim.  You get your beers at the large corporate Grocery stores, the neighborhood corporate convience stores like 7-11, or do the Total Wine.  I spread the wealth and do all 3 I suppose.

yeah.. Bourbon Ales are not for the weak I suppose. Of liver or constitutions/metabolisms. LOLThey hit hard..

You have Total Wine out there?  Do you feel like an a****le when you shop there?  I can't get past the feeling I'm killing the little guys by going there....so I rarely do

Bourbon ales....oof....good stuff but they just kill me...I"ve had to throw in the towel and admit my liver is too weak to handle themLOL

Hmmm haven't seen it before at the place by my house....but If I make a trip to the evil corporate Total Wine superstore, I'm sure they'll have it. 

They have every beer and wine ever created....the only problem is they put the little mom and pop stores out of business with the dirt cheap prices.  I feel like a complete a****le every time I go there...but the selection is amazing
