  4. This one is pretty good, tastes similar but a little lighter than the Founders Breakfast Stout, but it is definitely good for my second stout. I went to a different liquor store that had a much better selection, they had the New Divide Yeti and a large selection of Flying Dog, but no Kujo. They also had a few other local stouts and porters I need to try.

    The guy said they can’t get Ballast Point Victory at Sea, but didn’t say why.

  5. You can check on Untappd or BeerAdvocate and see how they're rated. That's what I typically do when I see something new. Not a guarantee, but if there are over a thousand reviews, and it's rated a 4 or better, chances are it's good if you like the style.

    I’ll check it out, thanks!

    I also need to get atleast one decent glass so I’m not pouring into a regular water glass lol

    Just tried the Fathom IPA, forgot to take a pic, but really enjoyed that one...first Ballast ive had, would you say the rest of the lineup is worthwhile?



  9. This was actually enjoyable...

    my lifelong nickname has been Moose, hence the reason for grabbing this one, but was not disappointed either...not like a beer authority over here or anything just commenitng on what I thought

    Negative. Taste is a subjective thing, but IMO Ballast Point can be hit or miss. They have some pretty decent stuff, but there's a few turds in there also.

    And what do you think of the CBS?
    Ya he certainly drinks some great beers!

    Ya its a rare brew.. i bought 10 bottles... in Canada is was 8.50 bottle.. curious how it will age with the maple.

    Ratebeer is also a really good source. The only down side to Untappd is I find alot of people that arent really into the craft scene use it. Thus a mediocre beer can end up with a really good rating, and a complex one lower...

    For sure, glassware can totally enhance the experience (matching glass ware can do fantastic things to the nose). Try to always have a tulip, goblet/snifter on hand.




    Merry Christmas my fellow Craft Beer Aficionados..

  16. Craft Beers / Microbrews: What Are You Drinking?




    Draft list (at the main bar) at Founders last night.

    I had:

    •BA Sumatra brown ale (from side bar)
    •CBS
    •Tank bender - 15% eisbock which is made by freezing water out of the initial beer batch to concentrate the beer for a higher ABV.
    •Dirty bastard
    •Nitro breakfast stout - even better than non nitro.
    •had another nitro breakfast
    •Backwoods bastard for my first beer of the new year.

    Best draft list ive ever seen at a single brewery.

  17. What did you think of the Tank Bender? That's one of those that I've never been able to get my hands on.

  18. It was good. Dark fruit, malty flavors were most noticeable to me. I thought it would be way boozier than what it was. Pretty easy drinking for 15%.
