    ***Official American Craft Beer Week Thread***

    Alright ladies and gents, one of my favorite weeks of the year is upon us...American Craft Beer Week. It's a great week to support local breweries. So what is everyone drinking? I have myself some San Tan Devil's Ale and Four Peaks RAJ IPA to start the week. Both brewed right here in PHX.

    Stopped in at Toppling Goliath yesterday and had a mug of 1492 IPA (single hop Columbus), and then had a Prairie Funky Galaxy and Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold while watching hockey.

    Drinking a Sierra Nevada Summerfest right now.

    I'll have to get into to TG again this week since they're putting out their Millenium Falcon APA to celebrate Craft Beer Week. Or just have my wife bring a few growlers home.

    Delicious. Not sure how far Deep Ellum beers go, but I recommend them.

    I had a Deep Diver Pound-Puller Green Hornet Yesterdaysterston Hoppy-Hoppsterston poured slow into a frosted mug cast from the glass of a crystal skull dug from grave of a Mayan Prince, and then sipped slowly through a sugar coated straw. ;)

    I'm counting a CBA beer, you can count an NAB beer. I don't care for arbitrary definitions that change annually as Jim Koch's sales grow...

    Re: ***Official American Craft Beer Week Thread***

    I gotta admit...when I grabbed a couple Confluence quarts when I first saw them and didn't realize until after I checked out that they were $10 each (so, $10 for less than 3 beers), I kinda tapped the brakes on the craft beer. I really started looking at prices, and it's like it's an arms race to charge more for the same beer. Now, if we're talking a very heavy beer, or extremely hopped, I understand inputs are more, but I'm likely not grabbing those anyway, so for the same beer, I find it hard to grab those that are 8-10 a six pack, even.

    I enjoyed a couple Brews at Albia Brewing Co. on Saturday.

    They have a new IPA that is pretty darn good.
