    The Founders tasting went well.
    I picked up KBS 4pack for $22.99, CBS bottle for $25.20, Breakfast Stout Howler for $7.00.
    And as I was going to check out, I saw Bigfoot and Bigfoot Trip in the Woods Bourbon Barrel Vintage. I grabbed a bottle of the latter, $19.60. I looked around whilst paying and saw Spaten Pilsner. Yep. Next visit. One of my favourite German Pilsners...

    A couple of corrections. The Spaten is the Premium Lager, the price for KBS is $22.50.

    Wow. More great beer. Founders finally dropped in SW Wyoming. I'm going to try and get up there this weekend and see what's kicking around.

    Thanks for that exciting news!

    22 ounce bottles from Coal Creek TAP are in town. 5 styles and so far, only one has been what I would call good. QC seems to have been put to the wayside as every one has been lacking in carbonation including the good one. The others have been just plain bad.

    1 more to go....

    My favourite week of the year!

    Until then, it's the 9th annual Hope Hops and Harmony that will capture me tomorrow!

    Yellowstone Garage is having a tap takeover by Wichita Brewing! I'm a big fan of their beers.

    As always, I am glad to pass on info of local beer news just in case someone travels through the area and doesn't know what the beer scene is like here.

    And as always, I appreciate the thanks you have given me over the years. :slight_smile:

    First day at Craft Beer Week in Casper, Liquor Shed. Very nice Wyoming beers to sample. As I was heading down the aisle to pay for my haul, I saw several bottled beers from Altitude Chophouse in Laramie!

    My first picks, the Anniversary Barleywine style Ale and their Wheat Wine.

    Ha! I sit down at Wyoming Aleworks in Casper and I get greetings from brewers of Big Lost and Wichita. They even know me as Bitterbill. How cool!!

    Harmony Hops and Hope is tomorrow and it's going to be raining and the high temperature is expected to be 43°. Sigh.

    Could Ska be the next brewery to come to Wyoming? We're getting pretty saturated in Casper but I am up for Modus Operandi!

    Brewery crawl tomorrow. Visit all 3 breweries, get your card stamped, and you enter into a drawing for free beer for a year from the brewery of your choice. That's cool.

    I was at Liquor Shed yesterday and was speaking to our beer guy aboot the enclosed 6packs and how some aren't dated. I mentioned Stone.

    He showed me dating on a few he pulled.
    Ha, the Go To was canned in January and best by April! He pulled 4 6packs but left 1. I asked him why? Apparently, the distributor will only buy back beers by the case. :slight_frown:

    Hit Smith Alley Brewing in Sheridan on Wednesday. They only do crowlers; no growler fills. Slow service (not enough staff); beer decent. Took three crowlers to my aunt's in Story to share with cousins; only cracked the raspberry blonde. Not bad but hoppier than I was expecting for a blonde. Brought a crowler of their Scotah ale and Milk Stout home.....
