Just heads up that Winestyles WDM just got 7 cases. Sue and Nugget limit of 2 each.
This probably means that places like prairie trail, 35th, and fluer hyvee will also get some.
Crap, I was literally a mile away from there today and didn't check.
A friend of mine recently visited the tap room in Decorah. He brought me back a bottle of Sosus and a bottle of Hopsmack both double IPAs. Haven't tried them yet but I will be doing so soon. I'm able to get Sue and Nugget pretty regularly in Iowa City. I guess that's one of the few good things about living here. They just really know how to make great IPAs. Sometimes batches of Sue vary a bit but I've never had one I didn't like.
Mills Civic had a 3 bottle limit last night when I stopped by.
Bottle production has been increased as keg production has lowered. They are going to make more money selling bottles to expand their operation.
As far as IPAs go (and barrel aged stouts) they are the bee's knees!
I just heard that Prairie Ankeny Hyvee has 12 cases left.
Had the Hopsmack last night. It was really nice as far as Double IPAs go. I would compare it to Scream from New Glarus but with a smoother finish. I would definitely recommend trying it to anyone who likes a good IPA.
Question for those of you that have been to the tap room, do they have a lot of bottles in stock? I always strike out trying to find any around here and am considering driving to Decorah to make a purchase but don't want to make the drive if they don't have much stock on hand.
I like bee's knees. Thanks for this thread op.
It depends. Usually they have at least some Dorothy and Golden Nugget, but the others are more hit or miss. Anytime I've seen PseudoSue there, they have A LOT of bottles, which tells me that they sell them quickly.
The only TG I've ever bought in DSM was Dorothy. Then I realized why that one was still in stock . . . :twitcy:
I kind of like Dorothy, but Sue and Nugget are much better.
I'm gonna try it someday, but was at Prairie trail yesterday and guy pulled a cart up to the cooler acted like he just found gold. Is it really good, or they just don't produce enough
Picked up some Psuedo and LightSpeed last night.
WDM Hy-Vee only had 4 bottles of lightspeed left and no Psuedo. Of course they had a million bottles of Dorthy. I'm guessing that TG makes a lot more money on Dorthy. I'd rather see them charge $1 or $2 more for their good stuff and actually have it available all the time.
I just saw on beer advocate that the head brewer at TG has left and they are looking for a replacement. I owuld have to think this would be a huge deal for such a small brewery.
That sucks! Is he going off to start something new, or what?
I did see that Decorah is getting another brewery - wouldn't that be nuts if he is going there?
How much impact does a head brewer have on beer quality? Or what impact would this have on the brewery as a whole? For instance, Sue, Nugget, etc all have established recipes, so we shouldn't expect their quality to potentially drop off, should we? I don't know enough about the whole process to have a clue
I'm no expert, but I would think TG would continue to produce Sue, Nugget, etc and it would taste very similar (almost exact) of what it does now. I'm sure they had more than one guy doing the whole process (maybe?)
But, he was a great brewer - so I think if they cannot fill his shoes with someone creative, innovative and as crafty, it would hurt the brewery moving forward for releasing new stuff.
I think the biggest story here (in my opinion) is that this guy can go somewhere else now and develop a Sue or Nuggest competitor. Especially since there was not a non-compete clause in the contract.
I for one, am looking forward to hopefully seeing a Sue clone from the same guy different place.
Again, this is just me talking - I could be 100% dead wrong.
