    Pahn, bigedct and youbrewidrink like this.
  3. Enjoy. I think Wachusett is an under unappreciated brewery. I think the reason why many geeks may not consider them among their top favorite local craft is because their flagship is a blueberry beer so that's what's first associated with them (and geeks don't seem to gravitate towards blueberry beers). However, if you go past that, they have some very enjoyable stuff. Even beyond Larry. For starters, I think fresh Green Monstah is really delicious, and their milk stout is super tasty.

  4. I've only had Green Monstah IPA (visiting family in MA for Thanksgiving) and I enjoyed it a lot. I'll buy it once it gets to CT. :)
  5. Lucky CT. Trade ya for NEBCO :cool:

    Tell that to everyone ISO Blabaer, KBE, Cascade Blueberry, LeBleu, etc, etc.
  7. Wasn't referring to wild ales and such...just blueberry beers like the ones made by wachusett, sea dog, newport storm, etc

    Oh, I'm well aware, and just felt like being a sardonic jerk for the moment. The bigger point is that BAs hate ALL non-sour fruit beers, not just blueberry ones.

    I love Shipyard Smashed Blueberry and I question the palate of anyone that doesn't.

    I like plenty of non sour fruit beers. Looking at DFH alone you've got Black and Blue, Aprihop, and Festina Peche. All good beers in my eyes. If I'm stuck at a bar with limited craft I'll order a Raspberry UFO over a regular UFO every time.

    So individuals like fruit beers... But as a whole Woosterbill is correct, if you consider the majority of Fruit-Beers and their respective reviews (assuming sub 4.0 as the standard of 'doesn't like').

    Edit- and I mean non-sour Fruit beers....

    Just picked up a bottle of Larry in CT (Simsbury Liquor Depot) for $5.29. Best By 7/19/2013.

    Pretty cool. Does anyone know how far out the bottles are dated?
  14. Would agree in general, some exceptions like New Glarus

    wachusett in general: meh, might pick up some.

    if you're lucky enough to have a fresh larry source: big score.
