Bourbon County Brand Stout - Goose Island - Chicago, IL - BeerAdvocate
Its good, but I can see how someone could be put off
by it. Its dominated by bourbon flavors at first but seems to mellow as you drink more. defiantly a sipper.

Gave one to a buddy that came over to watch some football with me this past Sunday. He got too ahead of himself with it and was feeling a little loopy in no time. LOL

It's great stuff but definitely a sipper. I like how the flavors change as it warms up.

re: Let's talk microbrews good beer

Anybody has anything new that is good in Pale Ales lately? I had a couple forgetables in the IPAs lately. The market is so flooded.

Had to reach back for an old favorite recently : Lagunitas IPA - Lagunitas Brewing Company - Petaluma, CA - BeerAdvocate

When it comes to big flavor with decent balance Lagunitas does their beers right.

I don't think I've ever been let down by Lagunitas. They are top notch.

Lil sumpin ale or whatever it called is sooooooo good.

I've started kegging my own beer now, and i gotta tell ya. It's the way to go. I just find a beer I love... look up the clone recipe- then tweak it myself. Boom- you've got an amazing beer.

UnderDog is the lightness of the lager and the bite of the IPA. Very tasty. Had it at home in cans (comes in bottles as well), and then grabbed a draft at a great sandwich shop in Frederick (a.k.a. Friscos | A Gathering Place for the Hungry). I really enjoyed it and glad it's a year-rounder for Flying Dog.
Frederick Represent! Have you done the Flying Dog brewery tour?

I was out in Denver earlier this year and was asking about good micro-brews to tour in Denver. They suggested New Belgian, Great Divide, etc. Then they said something along the lines of, "yeah some corncob town out in Maryland stole Flying Dog from us."

-Gotta love my hometown.


Atlantic Lager is a perfect BBQ beer. Easy to drink, low ABV... has a nice flavor to it. Raging bitch is there best seller I think.

re: Let's talk microbrews good beer

If you get a chance, try one of Lagunitas' wet hopped beers. They essentially add freshly picked hops to the beer as opposed to the traditional dried out variety.

Hops are super prone to spoiling if they aren't immediately dried out, so they literally wait until the hops are on the truck straight from the farm and time the brew process to coincide perfectly with the delivery.

Next time I'm out in California I've got to check them out.

isn't that standard pricing for any beer at an event like that?

re: Let's talk microbrews good beer

@RobH4413 - Yessir, been on the tour a few times. I live right around the corner from the brewery. First time, my daughter was 6 months old and she and my wife accompanied me for my birthday.

Had 2 stouts recently that were quite tasty.

Lancaster Brewing Milk Stout

Southern Tier 2X Stout

Prefer the Southern Tier one, but both were very tasty.

re: Let's talk microbrews good beer

Had another stout that blew my socks off, and will blows yours off too if you're not careful.

Kujo Imperial Coffee Stout | Flying Dog Brewery

Quite tasty and at 8.9% ABV, it packs quite a punch.

Heady Topper is a nice IPA I just had; it's made by The Alchemist in Vermont. As of now the Alchemist is only brewing that one beer for the sake of perfecting IPAs apparently. And while they haven't perfected IPAs, it's still pretty good.
