Tried the new Budweiser Copper. Nice color, aroma, and head. Unfortunately a little too sweet.... Perhaps a 7 out of 10....Cheers, Menko

I just had Hoplife's seasonal offering that had some sort of coffee in it. The first two sips were good but each additional sip just became more and more cloying. It wasn't all bad, just a little too much for me personally. It was one of those beers where it would have been better as a beer slurpee.

Best Bavarian beer from a small brewery.
You gotta try it, when coming to Munich.
What style of beer is this Augustiner Edelstoff???
Never heard of it, after living in Germany for many years!?!?
My preferences are amber colored, heavy hopped, Lagers.

Treehouse Julius

Great with Indian food last night -- the last of my Treehouse supply that a colleague gave to me as a wedding gift. Will have to find a way up to MA sometime to stock back up -- they were all top notch (though Julius remains my favorite).

A few tallboy cans of Kirin, Asahi and Yebisu from the corner 7-11 here in Tokyo. The Kirin is probably my favorite, and IIRC the Kirin we get in the US isn't made in Japan.

Another one of these -- absolute killer NEIPA followed by another Sip of Sunshine. Think the BBC Bionic Beaver easily held it's own.

Unfortunately BBC Bionic Beaver is a limited release and I can only get Sip of Sunshine a couple times a year when I get up to VT so will have to savor my last 3-4 cans of each

Atlanta has had a recent blow-up of craft beers but no one is pushing out high-quality beverages like Scofflaw. The POG Basement still beats out Tropicalia any day!

New Belgium's "The Hemporer". It's pretty good.

Slowly working my way through the Aslin Black Friday lineup (7 different stouts) that I stood in line for a week ago... very tasty, if coffee-heavy. I love the adjuncts in these, but wonder why they need so much coffee with all of them. A strawberry or peanut butter stout on its own would be great without competing with coffee (and I love coffee).

Heck, you can get them from vending machines in Japan--don't even have to go to 7-11!

I would second this - Sip of Sunshine seems to be a lot easier to get my hands on nowadays than it used to be. Some random sellers of craft beers a few blocks from my place in Chelsea carry it.

I grabbed some of Stone's entry into the NEIPA crazy yesterday. It's called "Fear Moves Lions"...not sure I quite get the name. The beer itself is pretty good, but I think Stone does West Coast-style IPAs better and should stick with that.

I'm in NC so no luck but we used to live in VT so I get up 1-2 times a year and my parents 3-4 so always get at least a 4pack from each visit and try my best to hoard while also drinking before they go bad

Schneider Aventinus doppelbock. Nice heavy beer for drinking by the fire on cold, wet days.

OT: it is mind-blowing to me how much cheaper beer is in Germany than Belgium. Even a higher-cost beer like Aventinus is less than 1 for a 500mL bottle, and my usual Weissbier is more like 65c. Good thing my trunk holds a few cases.
