Is Toogs The Beer available?
Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold.
Founders All Day IPA
i am a huge fan of the great lakes brewery
I think my favorite session beer that can't be had for too expensive would be Heavy Seas Gold Ale...I know that personally I can't drink too many of something like a Loose Cannon
Fordham Copperhead is $63 at Corridor for a 1/6 keg, seems like a decent price....I'm wasting way too much time looking at their keg selection now (because I have no idea where you'd go that would be more convienent). It amazes me that some people can drop $250 on a 1/2 keg of DFH 90 min or Rogue Dead Guy or something
1/2 keg of Modelo $87 <3
Also, can we just adjust the fractions and call 1/2 kegs full kegs now?
"Maryland football: Where everybody gets hurt and the starting left tackle has an existential crisis."
I have a kegerator and find I really only use it for heavy session drinking, or when I have people over. I still drink way more micros from the bottle, so something to keep in mind.
For me its usually 1/2 kegs of Yuengling for this reason.
I just tapped my latest keg of Yuengling a few nights ago. Actually, I had to change CO2 tanks and the rest of the beer is now spread across my kitchen since I forgot to let the pressure out.
Sam Adam's seasonals are great for an everyday drinking type beer. Next keg will be chosen based on what my beer/wine distributor friend can get me at cost. She gave me a massive list that she can get at cost, so I plan on skimming through that this weekend.
cracking my first one tonight. wish i had got them a little fresher. i agreed w/ you on Deviant Dales so we'll see about this one. toogs what are you go to DIPAs
Ithaca Flower Power IPA
Why did the beer thread die?
Hoptimum seems like they just threw something at it and made it bitter as hell but didn't bother worrying about make it taste good. There are plenty more DIPA out there that are better. I'd rather have a regular sierra nevada.
My haul from BevMo tonight:
Deviant Dale's - Agreed that fans of citrusy/piney IPAs like myself will enjoy this one. Similar flavor profile to Lagunitas Sucks. Surprisingly drinkable too...managed to knock back three of the 16oz cans tonight.
Ballast Point Tongue Buckler Imperial Red - Looks like they only have distribution in PA and VA, but all of their stuff is worth trying if you get the chance.
Stone Imperial Russian Stout
Green Flash Barleywine - Never had this style before, looking forward to checking it out.
I love me some Sierra Nevada, but glad I passed on the Hoptimum based on the earlier reviews. Their new rye IPA is pretty meh as well.
Ruthless Rye is one of the better Rye IPAs I've had. Better than Founder's
Terrapin wake n bake - good
Rogue voodoo bacon maple donut - bad. Very bad
it would be a warm Yeungling
Had a few 21st Amendment beers tonight. Hell or High Watermelon and Bitter American. Hell or High Watermelon was decent. A little too sweet though. Bitter American was really good. One of the better pale ale's I've had.
Kegerator construction begins tonight...so I will post some photos of the before and after. Should finish most of it tonight.
We're building a collar (2x6, faced with a 1x8). I think I am going to paint the entire thing with chalkboard paint. Not sure yet. There will be 3 taps on it, with room for a 4th if need be. I think I am going to have 2 home brew taps and also a commercial tap just as a backup.
We also brewed 20 gallons this past weekend, a kolsh and a raging bitch type brew. Cost us a grand total of $70 to brew. The kegerator will pay for itself in ~3 more brews.

Awesome project, looking forward to seeing how this works out. What is your set up for homebrewing 10 gallon batches? Also are you using kits or just buying ingredients for recipes? I do 5 gallon batches just with the basic brew pot then bucket and secondary glass carboy. I've got a Belgian Tripel (from a kit) fermenting right now, should be ready in 3-4 more weeks and I can't wait.
Progress after day 1...I am going to spend the weekend sanding and staining it.
Built the collar, ran most of the internal tubing for the CO2. I got shipped the wrong parts, so I am awaiting a fedex package with the 3 faucet shanks WITH nipples on the end. They sent me ones without them, so it's impossible to flow beer through them. After I finish sanding and staining/painting, theres not much else to do until the new shanks come.
We have a jerry rigged home brew system. We have a full keg that we have converted to a boiler pot and it has a propane burner underneath it. We built our own mashton and also our own grinder.
We've brewed long enough now we have our own recipes that are delicious! Where are you located? we go to Maryland Home Brew in Columbia.
Looks good so far! I'm in Gaithersburg and I go to MDHB sometimes but it isn't that convenient and a bit overpriced for kits. Although they are really helpful there. Much cheaper if you are brewing from scratch like you're doing. I bought my last kit at Nothern Brewer and I've bought from a few places including Bell's, they have awesome prices but the shipping from MI is expensive. I'd love to have a brewing set up like you described (and a kegerator) but that will probably have to wait until I move into a bigger house.
Stone Vertical Epic 10 10 10....broke out for semi special occasion. Good choice. Great balance for a strong ale.
Im ready for aa 5th of vodica to end my feels.
I just got back from visiting my parents in Texas. While there I came across Shiner Bock which is made in Texas. It's a slightly dark lager and very tasty! Wiki says they distribute their beer in 43 states but I've never ran across it here in PA.
Glad you liked it, but I find it horrible. Dont know where you are in PA, but this place has it
Johnny’s wife’s Place
501 Harrison Ave
Jeannette, Pennsylvania United States 15644
weird. i've seen shiner bock in probably 90% of the beer stores ive ever been in. very widely distributed beer.
I'm in the Mechanicsburg/Carlisle area. Our local beer store isn't anything to brag about...

Shiner is usually a decent value beer, I see it for around $6 per six pack in MoCo. Although they make this smokehouse beer that I found disgusting, I wouldn't recommend that. They make a decent wheat beer if you are in to that.

Had two Great Lakes Lake Erie Monsters last night on draft. Holy shit were they good. 9.1% but incredibly smooth and not overly bitter. Very citrusy with a hint of pine. A really amazing DIPA that everyone should try if you get the chance.
