    Had a few Anderson Valley "Fall Hornin" last night while watching the The Louisville Crashers. Excellent beer. Going for some Great Lakes Oktoberfest in the growler today. My favorite. Great time of year. Enjoy!

    Great band BTW.

    My kids turned me on to Kona's Big Wave. Got to say it is pretty tasty.

    Braxton Labs NE IPA #004 was fantastic. My favorite of the four that they've put out. I rarely drink two of the same beer back to back. I had two pints there and got a Crowler for home.

    So the first craft beer that I truly loved, and actually got me into wanting to try new beers and homebrewing was BBCs nut brown.

    I'm drinking a Goodwood Walnut brown right now, and it's total crap compared to what it used to be.

    Saw in the weather thread my friend that you all were heading to Gulf Shores about now for the week. We’ve been in Orange Beach.

    Some reccomendations:

    Good People IPA (out of Hunstsville)
    Anything Southern Prohibition (out of Hattiesburg)

    The Best?

    Red Hare SPF 50/50 IPA. My wife doesn’t really do IPA’s (I’ve gone all in, though lol) and she loves it. You can get it at the Publix in Orange Beach I know, but a place called Rouse’s in Gulf Shores has a heck of a selection, too.

    I agree on Rouse's, I went to several places and they by far had the best selection of craft beer in the area. I got a variety of beers from Fairhope Brewing which is in southern Alabama, which were all pretty good.

    There is also a relatively new brewery, Big Beach Brewing, I think they opened in October of last year. As of July, they did not bottle or can yet, so you'll have to go to their taproom to get a pint, flight, or growler to go. I sampled about everything they had, worth the stop if you like craft beer. They are located across the street from Tacky Jack's.

    We went to Tacky Jacks and as bad as this sounds; I didn’t see the brewery.

    I had something the other night from Fairhope Brewery; can’t remember the name of it though...one of their IPA’s though.

    Probably "Take the Causeway IPA" That seemed to be their most prevalent beer when I was there.

    Heading to a wedding up near Columbus for the weekend. Going to have some time to kill this afternoon. Think I have the wife convinced that we need to stop at Hoof Hearted.

    Just had McPoyle by Mile Wide in Louisville. Had it on Nitro and really enjoyed it.

    Didn't want this great thread to get lost in the shuffle of the Cheap Beer tournament.

    Wife and I got back from St. Lucia late Saturday Night. After drinking Pitons throughout the week, which were a little more tolerable with a lime, I had to get my hop fix yesterday. We went to Casual Pint, Listermann, Woodburn and Braxton Labs.

    Love that Listermann does $4 pours on Sundays.

    Heading down to Taft's Ale House after work tonight. Wife's dad loves their Cherrywood Amber, so probably getting a growler for him for Thanksgiving.

    Hoping they have their Santa's Bribe on tap. Saw it was a new seasonal they just started canning.

    @MJAlltheWay24 I know you like Nutcase, you may want to pick up a 4 pack of Hoppin' Frog Infusion A Porter. Chocolate and Peanut Butter, a 4.3 on Beer Advocate. I think they still have a few at Party Towne.

    I do like Nutcase. That does sounds pretty good. Thanks!

    Have you tried Satisfied from Listermann? That's in this realm as well.
