    Haha! I was just going to type this exactly! I challenge anyone to brew a better IPA than Bell's Two Hearted...and then there's Oberon.

    Does the beer have a catchy slogan like "Why settle for just one?"

    Haven't read the whole thread, but Maine is Shipyard, New Hampshire is Smuttynose, Mass is Harpoon, Connecticut is Thomas Hooker, Vermont is Magic Hat, and Rhode Island's is too small to see, but i'd bet a buck that it's Narragansett.

    I’ve heard people say they’ve gone downhill since the takeover. I never drank enough of theirs to tell the difference. Never been a big fan of their hallmark Kiltlifter.

    I recommend Pinetop Brewing Co. up in the White Mountains, as they specialize in the traditional Belgian style ales that I favor.

    Indeed! Schaefer "...the one beer to have when your having more than one." ...and Rheingold was the first of several million beers for me.:)

    No offense guys, but to my taste buds, Two Hearted is one of the most overrated beers out there. Not saying it's bad, but I just don't think it's anything all that special - I've had many IPAs I would rate higher. Almost any that I've had from Revision, for example. Treehouse, Trillium, Burial, and The Veil as well. Russian River's Pliney the Elder and Blind Pig, if you lean towards the West Coast IPAs.

    I'm not offended, but I don't think I agree with you.

    I don't like the tone of your post sir. Did they change the title of the thread ? Am I now obliged to mention other states in the post about my home state ?
    Are you trolling me ?

    I remember this as being an absolutely outstanding beer/pilsner. Back in the day, 70s-80s, there was pub in the West Village/NYC called The Peculiar Pub. It had an 11 page beer menu and boasted having the largest menu of international beers in the city. We'd often go and "drink our way around the world". The Urquell was always one of the most popular beers there. I've had real serious beer drinkers tout it as being one of the best beers in the world. Cheers!

    Not at all, please don't be offended. Just a point of interest. I remember as a teen (when I drank Bud in quantity) the story was that you could tell which of the 12 or 13 brewers that a bottle or can came from by which of the breweries was listed on the label was first. We'd explore as many we could to determine which was the best of the Bud brews. The Merrimack, NH brewery usually won.

    I know people who used to have the same feelings about cans, and I was one of them. My reasoning was that cans can prevent beers from being light struck and taste cleaner. Since I worked for companies who formulated can coatings, I discovered that coatings used to protect aluminum cans can produce residual Bisphenol A (BPA) from epoxy based coatings or melamines, depending on the chemistry and the completeness of cure.

    I'm sticking with glass.

    Goose Island is a craft beer from Chicago and so by virtue of its location it would be disqualified to represent Illinois. I've been away from that state for a long time so I can't say what the Downstate Illinois beer would be, but as a kid I'd say Stag Beer would qualify. Brewed in Belleville till the late 80s.

    I took a train from Prague to Vienna once, and that was the only beer on tap in the beverage car. I enjoyed my share of it that trip! Drank a few while in Prague as well.

    Best served fresh. The trouble with Pilsner Urquel in a glass bottle is the green tint. Lets in too much light.
