re: Let's talk microbrews good beer

Best micro brew I ever had was the RATTLESNAKE IPA at the Big Texan Steak Ranch. Two problems, they don't sell six packs to go and you have to drive to Amarillo Texas to get it. Hopefully some day they will sell it in an internet store. The micro brew had only been open for a few months when I first stopped in around October 2011, when moving to Virginia from California.
I stopped in two more times on cross country trips just for the beer.

Trying these new IPAs now. Beers sure are a lot more tangy (hops) than they used to be.

Over the weekend, a buddy of mine brought a growler of Tiller Brown Ale from 16 Mile Brewery - Bold Session Ales, Georgetown, DE. A nice drinking brown ale, with coffee and chocolate notes.

re: Let's talk microbrews good beer

It's beer week in my town, lots of beer dinners going on and tastings. Dogfish Head did a tap takeover last night at one place, had something like 25 taps going. Saturday is my favorite event, the beer summit. A 3 hour festival, 80 breweries, live music, $40 for all you can taste.

That's my go-to. I generally find if the scores are 95 or above, I end up loving the beer. That seems to be true whether I see the score first and then taste, or taste first and see the score later.

re: Let's talk microbrews good beer

BA is awesome. Great beer resource. I usually salivate over what they post on Twitter.

I'm always proud of myself when I try a beer and love it, then look it up and see it's highly rated LOL. Or the other way around if I don't care for a certain beer. BA is usually pretty spot on with their reviews.

re: Let's talk microbrews good beer

Was at a taphouse a week ago, keep drinking this 3 Brothers Brewing IPA "The Admiral"

The Admiral | Three Brothers Brewing | Harrisonburg, VA | BeerAdvocate

Really good local stuff. To be honest, in the last year Ive been leaving the national beers and just drinking the Virginia stuff. Fresher and taste just as good.

re: Let's talk microbrews good beer

These are the Virginia Breweries Ive really been enjoying:

Three Brothers Brewery, As I mentioned above very good beer, first time trying and will be drinking more:

Three Brothers Brewing

I grew up down the street from this location and Im not being a homer here, but these guys probably have the best lineup, best tasting all-round of what they offer: Center of the Universe Brewery: Welcome « Center of the Universe Brewing Center of the Universe Brewing

Devil's Backbone Brewery. Discovered these guys about 5 years ago on the Virginia Wine Trail area. I was tired of drinking wine and needed a beer. These guys are solid, but their brewery and location is amazing: Devils Backbone Brewing Company

Our Beers | Hardywood Park Craft Brewery Hardywood Brewery has really taken over Richmond. I met the owner/brewmaster when they first open and got a personel tour with a couple friends. Their overall lineup is ok, but their Burbon DIPA Beer is simply amazing. One of the best original tasting beer all time. Their brewery is near the Skins camp in Richmond.

Blue Mountain Brewery | The Beauty of Virginia. The Bounty of Nature. The Art of Brewing. Blue Mountain is brewing my favorite beer right now: Full Nelson Virginia Pale Ale | Blue Mountain Brewery | Afton, VA | BeerAdvocate Full Nelson Pale Ale, cant stop drinking it.
