The logo of this place is perfectly awful

Don't need to click on that to realize that finally, we're get an aggressively right wing, overtly racist brewery. 'Bout time, right? Make beer great again!

So Founders is adjusting their PR take?

Big flight delay --> stuck in SF --> beers at Toronado

I've heard about that place, any good?

Mikkeller in SF is great. So is Cellarmaker if you like IPAs.

Xp yes, cool place with plenty of stuff to try including a crazy rare beer list. Cash only though.

That’s the place I walked miles to get a Pliny at

joygoat, Sunday, 22 December 2019 02:09 (three months ago) link

re Pliny, better distro makes sense, my local pub has it on tap rn and I was initially surprised

'sometimes when i'm drinking narragansett, I feel like it has a little too much flavor'
WHAT DAT?

Someone who'd really rather be drinking Bud?

Toronado was great. Went there when I was in SF specifically to get Pliny on tap since a trip to Russian River wasn't going to be in the cards. Tons of other great stuff to be had and the vibe was nowhere near as tech-broey as some of the other bars we hit up.

SAY NOW?

calstars, Friday, 3 January 2020 21:26 (three months ago) link

"Bud"? Is that one of those new THC infused IPAs?

Is CBS the fastest "white whale" to "clearance aisle at Target" beer we've seen? What a world we live in.

Just back from two-ish weeks in New Zealand (see flight delays post above). Pretty vibrant craft scene there, favorites were Emerson's, Good George and Panhead.

Seeing months old Founders and Lagunitas IPAs on the store shelves there was pretty lol.

i knew a woman who literally followed a delivery truck around cambridge mass c. 2013 so she could buy as much as possible of the annual release of KBS (not even CBS!), a beer that is now available year-round in my whole foods.

Wasn't (and isn't) KBS rarer than CBS?

nickn, Saturday, 4 January 2020 01:52 (three months ago) link

never was around here....we got KBS once a year (in march iirc) and went years in between seeing CBS outside of a few draft accounts.

call all destroyer, Saturday, 4 January 2020 01:57 (three months ago) link

Hmm, I thought CBS was just a coffee stout, googling shows it's Canadian whiskey/maple syrup barrel aged. Seems like I've been seeing CBS on the shelves in large quantities for a few years now.

nickn, Saturday, 4 January 2020 02:16 (three months ago) link

three weeks pass...

I think they must have upped KBS and CBS production significantly, because they linger. There's also a coffee KBS now, I saw.

one month passes...

Anyone else feel like bourbon barrel stouts do uniquely bad things to them? I drank a sixpoint master blend the other night and felt like shit for two days.

i barely fuck with em anymore, same for a lot of guys i know. not only are they very likely to wreck you, but the flavor profile has become unappealing. there are old bottles of bourbon county in my basement that i look at w/dread.

call all destroyer, Monday, 2 March 2020 00:14 (one month ago) link

I like them, but I think the key is to split one with someone and drink them like you might drink, I dunno, bourbon. Share them, and smaller pours, and you (and they) are good.

Just had my first beer with cryo hops. Tasted like beer.

Josh in Chicago, Monday, 2 March 2020 02:28 (one month ago) link

Xp yeah it wrecked me in this unique way that a similar amount of some other 13% alcohol beverage would not. It also does taste a little odd to me, syrupy and sort of somewhere in between cola/dr pepper/very sweet coffee.
