I miss Founders. With that said, there are a shit ton of options out here as well. I still have a lot of brewery hopping to do.

Although, I miss Bell's Two Hearted the most. Parents brought a shit ton out here when they visited.

I'm starting to try to get away from drinking piss beer all the time. Grabbed some Founders Centenniel IPA last weekend and enjoyed it..that stuff will put you on your ass too. Similar to Two Hearted.  Still a total rookie when it comes to this stuff though..anyone have a 6 pack recommendation?
Jai lai is good if they have that. Same with hopsecutioner.

WBH...try Delirium Tremens or Kwak. I usually only see these in 750ml bottles (looks like a wine bottle)

Both are Belgium ales and are strong but outstanding.

Cheers!

If it has to be an IPA try and find Bedlam. Its a Belgian IPA from Ale Asylum in Madison, WI.

Been drinking Moon Man from New Glarus Brewing Company. Great pale ale that I'd recommend picking up if you're ever in Wisconsin.

Try Founders Mosaic Promise, single hop, single malt, pretty tasty, but I'm partial to Mosaic hops.

Had been a big fan of Griffin Claw's Gateway session for a couple years.  That has changed.

Not sure WTF they are doing to it now.  Comes in 15-packs like Founders All Day.  Can put one of those 15 packs in the fridge for days and then carefully open one.  Spews out the top almost like someone shook it up a little.  Someone at Griffin Claw is fucking up and I'm no longer recommending Gateway.

My corner store got 7 cases of Hopslam (in cans again this year). Got a 6 tonight. Hope to get another 6 tomorrow night when the owner is there.

Stuff is room temp. Gonna let one chill in the freezer for 20 minutes before cracking it.

Went to Holiday Market in RO Saturday to look for it. Their beer/wine/liquor guy told me they got an entire pallet last Wednesday and it sold out in 2 hours. Said they won't be getting anymore. Said he checked Meijer and Kroger locations around here and it's all gone.

The last couple of years, I've had success finding it at Meijer in tbe middle of the day during the week. I'm going to try again tomorrow.

As serious as this place can be:

Is there a definition for a "craft brewer"
Not long ago it was easier to define but outfits like ABinBEV and SB Miller are buying up smaller independents. SamAdams has national distribution with its major bottling in Cincinnati. New Belgium has bottling in CO and NC.

It has something to do with how many barrels are produced each year.  Like "small batch" for hard liquor. Wisconsin has hundreds of craft brewers that are all independent. If owned by a conglomerate I would say that brewer is no longer craft.

You're correct, their is an annual barrel production limit set by the Craft Brewers Assoc. It is about 5 barrels more than Sam Adams makes in a year, and that's not a coincidence.

I'm waiting for Kraft to come out with a beer. That would be a real Kraft beer.

I personally don't GAS, but I think the new batch of Oberon makes its debut on Monday. Not that it matters much anymore, given that it's available for most of the year.

Bingo. Plus, if people say it tastes best with an orange, you're brewing it wrong. See also: Blue Moon.

What did you pay for the 4-packs? Places near me only sell it by the bottle.

I am weird and don't understand the big deal about KBS.

The Canadian maple stout Founder's makes is just as good if not better IMO. I guess I just don't really love dark beers that much and prefer pale ales and the like.

The first store was $28, Kroger was $24.

Pretty much everything they brew is fantastic. Easily my favorite overall.

I actually don't drink much beer, so I'm able to enjoy a bottle here and there without seeing an impact on my weight. Yeah, they're filling, which is why I usually only drink the one on nights I'm thirsty for a brew. Parties are another story and I'll reach for something lighter, like a Two-Hearted or Sam Adams.
