    Hey, how did the Dakotas get drawn into this? We don't have any limits on ABV or other puritanical BS.

    LOL it's not that bad, really. Well, the tap beer cap sucks the big one. But the selection in the liquor stores is... tolerable. We get Odell, Melvin, Deschutes, Firestone Walker, and some other regional stuff. We get SN, Stone. My store carries the whole Ayinger line so I load up on that.

    If you are a big specialty stout or DIPA chaser, you're out of luck. But I kind of stick to the basics and it's fine.

    Plus great hiking and skiing!

    It can often be the case for UK bottled beer to have higher abv than the cask version. They pretty much need a bigger beer to get the same flavor/character/body as the cask version. Those are not added as two different beers to my knowledge.

    Most of the macro brewers have long offered both a "Not More than 3.2 by Weight" (4.0% abv) beer and a "regular" one under the same brand name. (Though they are slowly dying out as the final "Three point Two" states change their laws). Would have thought a Utah resident would be all too familiar with those.:grin:

    You can see many of them on the MillerCoors Nutritional Info pdf, page down to bottom to find the 5 page section entitled Lower Alcohol Product Brand Nutritional Data.

    Yeah, the way I stated it, I was clearly wrong. Bud and Miller etc. obviously had two different % beers with the same name, this is what prompted the move from 4% to 5% in the first place. (The big boys didn’t want to make the 4% stuff anymore just for Utah.)

    I was thinking of Utah breweries: I wasn’t aware of a Utah brewery that had a beer at 4% and a higher strength beer with the same name. There could be some though, I didn’t really research it

    We'd kick the crap out of ND, because we have the B1 and B2 bombers based here, and outnumber them. :wink:

    I've not had a beer from either of the Dakotas but those Dot's from the north sure are tasty. Just don't read the ingredients list..

    Ozark Pale Ale @ 4.3% abv really shines.

    That is a damn fine reason to move. You should come to California. WE don't have laws like that. And we put bars in our movie theaters and grocery stores. I can;t go 50 feet without someone waving a beer in my face.

    Been to Cali numerous times, this is indeed accurate. The two most common things in California are someone asking you for spare change, and someone offering you a taster of craft beer!

    Yeah. They don't really ask for change anymore. They mostly demand it.
