    What are some popular, easily found beers in your area that you've been meaning to try, but for some one reason or other you haven't?

    Personally, I've been meaning to try anything from Lost Abbey, but there's always something new at the bottle shop that catches my eye and $ instead.

    Rochefort 6 comes to mind. Not sure why I haven't had it yet. Love the 10 but was disappointed by the 8. I also haven't had Sierra Nevada's stout.

    Don't bother. Save your money and get something good. I wish I could get my money back on the 12 pack I got a while back.

    A 12pk, why? That's why I love stores that sell singles. You live, you learn.

  10. I wanted to try Becks Sapphire so I bought a single bottle. If I had bought a sixer of it, it would have been drained poured as I could barely finish 1 bottle because it was so bad.

    Tripel Karmeliet
    Rochefort 6
    Chimay White
    Schneider Weisse
    Oude Gueuze Tilquin

    Basically, a lot of foreign beers that are pricey. I can't buy all those expensive beers at once, so I usually buy one when I'm at the store. I'll try all of these eventually.

    Westy 12
  15. Sierra Nevada Stout, and Porter. I absolutely love everything else SN puts out, just have never decided to try either of those, usually always just reach for Deschutes' offerings for those styles.

    Most of Bell's and Founders stuff. Not a big fan of darker beers, and just recently started drinking IPAs so haven't even had Two Hearted yet (though I have had Centennial). I could probably count the number beers I've had from those two breweries, combined, on one hand.

    I have never had Anchor Steam or Stone Ruination. I have had a standing rule for over a year that when I walk in to a beer store and they have Ruination under 3 months old, I will buy it, drink it, and review it. Still no Ruination :(

    Jump all over Sculpin. If you like IPA's, you won't regret your purchase.
