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.

    Yea its tough and annoying. The wife and I usually grab a six pack or 2 of good stuff a week. (10-20ish) and if we are going out to the bar for more than just a drink its good ole InBev time. But if I am sitting around at night, I enjoy a nice craft beer.

    Solid choice. I'm heading to a small tour at Peticolas tomorrow night. They are putting on some of their more limited and previous years brews. Still my favorite brewery in north Texas. Deep Ellum is a close second though.

    I've gotten some Peticolas here and there, but never more than a couple pints. Another brewery in that area is Community, they are about a year old, pretty good stuff there too (Mosaic IPA is one of the best I've had)

    I managed to secure a case of Heady Topper last week. It has been a good week.

    Are you going to save the dregs to re-pitch in your own wort? ;)

    Drinking Magic Hat #9. So good.
    Happy Hour pricing on Dort all day long at the brew pub.

    I have Chillwave, Rye of the Tiger, Commodore Perry and Lake Erie Monster in my fridge right now. All the IPAs.

    I don't drink that much beer anymore, but I sure like to buy it. I give it away before it goes bad.

    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.
    Great Lakes has some really good stuff. Where do you find it?

    Before I move south I will need to make the 2 1/2 hour drive to WI to pick some spotted cow up. Maybe a 6 pack or 30.

    I'm going to visit Cantillon in September. I've never had it but by the reviews I've seen, I think I'll like it a lot. I wish I could ship a case home without it costing so much.

    I second Community's Mosaic IPA. My friend brought some back from TX and it was delicious.

    Just bring an extra bag to check when you fly back.

    I may have to do this. I'll have to make sure it's really protected though.
