    Give me Treehouse or Trillium all day every day over Sam Adams or Harpoon, though.

    I would have picked PBR for Tennessee but maybe that's more of a Nashville thing.

    Four Peaks Brewery sold to Anheuser-Busch in 2015... Is it still a "craft brewery" if it is owned by Budweiser?
    I tend to prefer the smaller Breweries since I don't drink much and I like to try different non IPA beers.

    Since you brought up the subject, I'm forced to post this picture. Again. :D

    Bells makes some good stuff.

    For some reason, a couple restaurants in far western North Carolina can get a number of their products.

    I just wanna make full use of this post to complain about beverages in cans. I don't care for it. I'm WAY more likely to try your product if it comes on draught or in a glass bottle.

    +1 on Burial Beer!

    However, yes, you'd think Foothills Brewery would be the logical choice.
    Don't know who created that map or why Aviator was chosen, but it obviously wasn't chosen by a Tarheel!

    I didn't know that.

    What I have found was, a really large percentage of drinkers of San Miguel, think they're drinking a beer from Latin America (probably Mexico).

    I think a lot of the beers that were once imported (such as Beck's) are brewed under license in the USA now and people are oblivious - caught in a time warp.

    Not any more - it's been brewed in NJ since AB-Inbev bought them.

    Cans are much much better than they used to be. I used to share your feelings, but I'm pretty much the opposite now - if I'm buying for home, I prefer cans since they take less room in the fridge, and are more convenient to carry.

    Young 'un is in a strange place. IMO it is in between the Big Boy Breweries and the little Craft outfits. You can find it in all sorts of places in the eastern half of the USA and as long as it is fresh (and even when it isn't) it is decidedly better than something like Budweiser or Busch or Corona. And it is very reasonably priced. A pizza place in Jacksonville Florida will have pitchers of it around the same price as Bud Light. A pitcher of some of these other products might be three times more expensive.

    But I will admit that my taste for it has been on the decline. Yuengling is what is in the fridge right now, and it doesn't clear out the way it used to.

    Dixie Beer (the original bottlers) actually canned beer in sketchily lined steel cans. Since the product was chemically fairly active, it would actually etch in the inside of the cans. People talk about the acrid taste of Iron City, but I found a number of beers that were like that. The "advantage" of Miller, Budweiser, Schlitz, Stroh's and etc., was, they didn't taste like much but they weren't acrid like that.

    People are "joking" about all the wrong things, these days.

    I'm fed up with it. Call me uptight if you like. A man's word should be protected with his life - you lose your Word of Honor and you're nothing. I'm sick of all the lying, and people pretending they're serious until it isn't working - and then it is a joke.

    Utah was settled by Mormons who at the time practiced poligamy or having multiple wives. The practice was outlawed in the 1890s to allow the state into the union. It’s still practiced by a small faction of splinter groups in Utah and Mexico.
    Poligamy Porter is a dig at the Church who practice abstinence from alcohol.
    Just so you know I can’t have alcohol for health and safety reasons. I’m a nasty drunk and I’ve just received a new liver. But I’ll settle for an O’Doules any time.
