SN Pale is pretty common all over. Even my corner gas station has it.

I used to love SN - especially the pale ale. I remember hearing they sold out to one of the major breweries several years back? Not sure if this is true or if that means it isnt an official microbrew anymore but for some reason I stopped drinking it at that point.

SN is by far and away my favorite brewery, I always have something from them in my fridge. I just had a four pack of Bigfoot Ale Barley Wine recently, I'd never seen it before. For a barley wine style w a 9.6 alc % it was damn smooth. If you happen to spot it I would highly recommend picking some up if you like SN.

This is just making it down to our favorite watering hole here and man, it is amazing. Only the pils and lager right now, but both are ultra complex considering the styles. The lager is one of the best I've had in a while (Helles I believe?).

As much as the Philly area sucks (Eagles fans etc.) it is a great area for craft beer. If you like Sly Fox, do yourself a favor and try anything by Victory Brewing or Troegs.

re: Let's talk microbrews good beer

I'm throwing these down right now. Beats SN Pale in hop flavor, smooth finish, and best of all alcohol content!

re: Let's talk microbrews good beer

So many beers, so little time...

During Preakness weekend, I finally got my mitts on Dead Rise | Flying Dog BreweryFlying Dog Brewery and wasn't disappointed. It's a good summer beer. You don't get the Old Bay flavor in the beer itself, but I got it in the back of my throat as I drank it down. I know this beer has been a love it or hate it beer for most people, but I enjoyed it.

My favorite beer of late has to be Summer Helles - New Belgium Brewing - Great beer, easy drinking. I always feel being in the minority when I tell people I don't like Fat Tire, but everything else I've tried by New Belgium I've liked, and their Summer Helles is no exception.

https://www.samueladams.com/craft-beers/porch-rocker - Wife got a 6er of this for her, and I had one. It's a shandy style beer, but to me it was more of a beer with a slight lemonade taste, whereas most shandy beers I've had were lemonade heavy. I found it refreshing.

Took a mini vacation over the past weekend and got a 6er of Summer Lager :: Cisco Brewers, Triple Eight Distillery, Nantucket Vineyard - Decent beer. First thought in my mind was a better tasting Natty Boh.

Also got the misses a 6er of Saranac Shandy and wished I had gotten another 6er of Sam Adams Porch Rocker. Very lemonade forward. Geared towards those who live off of Mike's Hard Lemonade.

re: Let's talk microbrews good beer

drank a couple flying do blood orange ale last night.

not bad. about 7% abv so it just barely passes one of my mandatory requirements. i think im turning into the cheapest dude around. i wont pay $8-10 bucks for a sixer unless it is at least 7%.

im finding with flying dog, there isnt much difference taste wise btw their raging bitch, snake head, the truth, blood orange (noticeably more fruity)

interested in the Sly Fox. will try to find when im up there

re: Let's talk microbrews good beer

I think we need to agree to a definition of a micro brew -

for me, it has to be localized. any beer i can get coast to coast is a domestic beer, not a micro beer.

Microbrewery - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

seems some consensus is that a micro brewery cannot produce more than 15k barrels per year.

this is kinda interesting below re craft beers (which i think a lot of folks are talking about in this thread)

"regional craft breweries, which make between 15,000 US beer barrels (1,800,000 L) and 6,000,000 US beer barrels (700,000,000 L), of which at least 50% is all malt or contains adjuncts that are used only to enhance flavor"
