Happy to help.
Who's happy to help whom? I'm lost.
The Julu Bru is a pretty damn decent sour as well! All of their other beers are drinking great also especially liked The Elevator dopplebock and East Side was making a rare appearance as well. Harriet has been a favorite of mine since they opened, really turned me on to the belgian style!
I don't know who Randall is, but I can tell you, *this* particular Randall is one of two that Fulton built and uses at events.
Ever have something stuck in your teeth that drives you nuts but when you get it out you kind of miss it? That just happened to me trying to figure out who Furnace Cowgirl is.
I may have missed it back in late Feb, but does anyone know if Founder's Smoked Porter is on anywhere or will be on anywhere soon? Thanks!
Lowry next Thursday.
Awesome! Thank you for sharing!
It's very good. I lucked out and had a work trip to Grand Rapids the week they released it. I'm not a huge smoked porter fan but really liked this one.
Anyone else feel Mirror Mirror is underrated?
Bryant Lake has Cask conditioned Sweet Child on Citra war and peace and Patience
Was on at the gnome last weekend.
What a waste of Citra.
Was the citra personally wasted on you or is this an effort at conjecture?
I was just being a jerk. haven't even tried it.
It has a 93 on here, which is already considered outstanding. There isn't much further to go in ratings. Personally, I think that beer suffers a little identity crisis by not aligning itself with American barleywine characteristics, but also not committing itself enough to really be any type of English style barleywine.
Since when is being unique such a bad thing?
Take Doom, for instance. Nothing out there like it, that I knew of anyway; and I loved it.
Another example is Baby Maker by Jack's Abby; a Lager Wine that's amazing.
Edit: Crap. Thought this was the Mirror Mirror thread. Oh well, I can't wait to try it.
Being unique is certainly not an issue. That is what the catch all term of strong ale is for. And I am not trying to make any point of it being mis-categorized or anything like that, as they can market it anyway that they want. Also, I didn't say that I didn't like it. I was just saying that at 93 and "outstanding" (by the BA rating standards), the beer certainly isn't underrated (the post that I was responding to). It just isn't anything like a beer that would make the highest category of "world class" (which it is only two points from, again by BA rating system). It is just a big strong ale that is definitely less interesting than most other barleywines with the same overall rating). In fact I have a bottle of the original batch that I am going to open next year at 10 years (1 theirs, 9 mine) aging on it, hoping that somehow it develops more character, even if that character comes from some oxidation. Obviously, all just my opinion here, but fresh or even aged 2 or 3 years that I have tried, it seems like a very one dimensional beer.
Surly tap room- Cynic and Overrated which I almost never see on tap along with Misanthrope, Abrasive and Blakkar- that is a nice offering!
Sorry guys I was in Florida....
We have the Deviant Dales, Breckenridge Gubna, Oskar The G'Rauch, and Ten Fidy on tap still!
Dangerous Man Brewing Co
We got our Batch 100 Triple IPA running through some lovely Citra hops on a Randall! Get some!

Rock Bottom Half Off Deal
Red Cow Half Off Deal
Looks like i was too slow
Wait whoa your posting about a Citra brew .. are you sure?
Yes, fuck yes.
I remember the last release right when Deschuttes hit MN. I could find it on shelves for months (HAHAHAHAHAH not gonna happen now...) and man I stocked up. Drank my last bottle this past June and loved the shit out of it.
One knows how to properly use the hop the other doesn't. Whoa.
Stubs has Leprechaun Flute and Wolf Picker from Odell on tap
Fulton Expat Firkin at Grumpys DT today (now) and one at 3pm at Grumpys NE!
St Paddys Irish and Irish style beers going on today at Red Cow:
Kilkenny Irish Cream Ale
O'Hara's Irish Red
Odell Leprechaun Flute
Lift Bridge Irish Oatmeal Stout
Magner's Irish Cider
Perfect if you pair with one of our specials below!
Blue Door St Paul has a Summit tap takeover with Frostline, Rebellion Stout and Unchained #15
I love that Hams is still on!
There seems to be a lot of talking, and not a lot of beer finding on the thread this month. Well, to go against the trend, I saw Central Waters BBS, and Folton Patience on tap at Bryant Lake Bowl yesterday.
Brau Brothers Bancreagie Sour Scotch Ale and Ten Fidy on tap at the prairie tap house in Eden Prairie
Nothing overly noteworthy, but Crooked Pint Ale House just opened a second location, down in Apple Valley. 32 craft taps, including Abrasive, Blakker, and Unchained #15. Solid bar food too
Mackenzie's still has BA Ten Fidy on!
Thanks for sharing, I was curious as to what they were going to have. Mind sharing what else they have on?
They don't have a website or a Facebook page yet, which is surprising if you want to get the word out.
Beer menu is a little frustrating. The have the majority of the menu listed as "rotator" or "seasonal" or sometimes both, depending on the brewery. Heavy on locals, with 4 Surly (Furious, Bender, Abrasive, Blakkr) 4 Summit ( EPA, Saga, Unchained #15, Oatmeal) and 2 regular Indeed. The rest were basically seasonal offerings that will change, but not sure on regularity. Some that they had were:
Founders Red Rye IPA
Goose Island IPA
Odell 90 Schilling
Lift Bridge ? (Didn't ask)
Fulton Lonely Blonde
I also found a list here. Seemed to match up pretty well.
Stopped by the Hollywood Roadhouse. Here is my review:
My brother talked to the owner when he was there and the guy told him that he drives to pick up his own kegs which is how they get stuff like Abrasive, Blakkr and Founders Breakfast Stout.
