    I like beer in 2019. So I thought I'd let people know and I put a date on it. Let's discuss. Please do not refer to beer you may or may not have liked in previous years. And since you can't know if you'll like beer in 2020 or beyond, please don't speculate toward the future.

    Let's stay here in 2019, people. OK? Go.

    I know about this because, in 2019, the beer is good.

    Picked up a sixer of Bodhizafa at while shopping at Costco last night.

    It is good.

    I, too, like PNW beer in 2019.

    To be perfectly clear (while staying compliant with the all-important annual date-stamp), I also like beer from outside of the PNW in 2019. But that is a topic for a different date-stamped thread.

    I don’t know guys, it’s still pretty early in 2019 to decide whether or not I like PNW beer. What if I like it now, but something happens in May that causes me to dislike it for the majority of 2019?

    Based on previous years’ experience (which is relevant to me but not at all to this thread), I think I’ll like PNW beer all year this year, which is the year 2019.

    SoCal likes PNW beer better in 2019?

    That seems unlikely, but is still flattering in 2019.

    The wife and are currently in NorCal, and so I'm unsure as to my current feelings about pnw beer. True, I've found pnw beer to be agreeable in the past, but I gather that's no guarantee as to whether or not I'll like it again in the future. Who knows what the future will bring?

    As I'm unable to currently render an opinion regarding the quality and benefits of pnw beer, I can be of little assistance in assisting @sharpski with his current conundrum. In other words, he'll need to navigate on his own the vagaries of pnw beerdom in 2019, accepting the reality that just because he enjoyed a glass of pnw today, in no way guaratees that he will have a similar experience tomorrow.

    If you've enjoyed PNW beer all the way back to Jan. 1, 2019, you're good to go for this thread.

    While the future definitely doesn't have us getting any younger, I hope it does have you getting Younger.

    This thread seems to be a bit redundant with the WBAYDN thread

    If I may:

    The NW WBAYDN thread is where we talk about which beer we're drinking right now.

    This thread is for saying that we enjoy PNW beer, during the time period identified with a BeerAdvocate-approved year stamp.

    Two completely different subjects.

    I must not have been around long enough to get the whole timestamp issue as I am definitely missing something. The vast majority of the WBAYDN thread is discussing PNW Beer people are enjoying in 2019.

    I’m kinda surprised this thread still exists. I don’t mind it being here but it seemed nuke worthy for some reason.

    I've already started planning for the I Like PNW Beer (2020) thread. Spoiler alert: I still like it.

    It's Extreme Beer Fest weekend. After staff gets done pounding all those extreme Pilsners, they'll get around to it.

    Speaking of PNW beer, does Manny's Pale Ale make it to Portland often? Specifically at places that offer crowlers...

    I see it on tap at the Horse Brass pretty often (or at least I used to), but that's about it. Unfortunately, I don't believe they offer crowlers.

    I was about to recommend checking the tap list at the SE Portland Growler Guys.

    But I just did, and there are empty spots in the taplist, and I know why, and now I'm sad.

    I may well be wrong, but I don't think it's because of their upcoming closing. I just received a brew notice update, and assuming it's accurate, it sounds like they just put on a bunch of new stuff (Hawaiian Speedway for example).

    I, too, may well be wrong. But to borrow a song title from The The*, "We Can't Stop What's Coming," and it won't be easy for me to get out of my habit of recommending that location of Growler Guys.

    (* Not a metal band, btw.)

    So I stopped by this afternoon, and unfortunately I stand corrected. As it turned out, Brendan himself was working behind the bar. Felt like old times talking to him... But there were 3 empty tap handles, and I gather this was a planned tapering down, according to Brendan. He indicated that as of the closing down party next month, they'll probably be down to 8 or 10 tap handles.

    I know I'll be there.

    If the closing down party is on or before Mar. 12, then I will be there too.
