    I'm just learning about "good beer." Unfortunately, growing up in the Midwest, largely surrounded by blue collar folks, I didn't necessarily appreciate the craft beer scene. Most of the people in my family grew up drinking Miller Light and Old Style. Nonetheless, the first "craft beer" I drank, if you could even call it that, was a Fat Tire. Then, I tried Anchor Steam and Sierra Nevada.

    Once my friends returned from college, and once I was discharged from the Marine Corps, many of my closest peers began talking about Belgium Style IPA's, IPA's, Double IPA's, Stouts, Hops, etc. At the time, I didn't really know anything about what they were talking, nor what I really liked to drink. However, now, after hanging with several friends who I would consider "beer aficionados," it's clear to me that my favorite beers are IPA's and Double IPA's---although I do enjoy a unique American Pale Ale as well.

    Sometimes, in the winter months, I enjoy a good Stout, but otherwise, the best beers I've had so far are: Stone: Enjoy By, Alchemist: Heady Topper, and Three Floyd's: Zombie Dust. As I mentioned above, I'm quite new at this experience, so I can only assume there's better beers out there. I'm open to try anything and looking to trade with folks who cannot access Midwest beers and vice versa.

    I should also mention, that if anyone would like Zombie Dust, please let me know as I live less than 45 minutes from the brewery.
