    Old First Ward Crikcat Kölsch is the first North American made Kölsch style beer I’ve ever thought was really good. I had it for the first time earlier this month.

    HOMES/Speciation Fruit Draft 2019 was an amazing wild ale, and Drafting Table's Palatable B4 set a high bar for the rest of the year for me.

    I will second the Four Horsemen from Elllison. Damn, they make a fine barrel aged stout. Speaking of which, I also had an Ellison Gravity Shift recently as well. Great great beer.

    I also shared a howler of Founders BA MF Donkey Stout with some buddies two nights ago. That was pretty damn good as well. I've never been a fan of MF Donkey Stout on the few occasions I had it in the past but the BA version was stunning.

    While being an old favorite I hadn´t had Köstritzer on tap until last night, in the most unexpected of places. It was ridiculously good in its simplicity and felt super fresh, so I had to drink a couple of pints. Not a beer-oriented kind of place but they also had taps serving Grevensteiner and Licher Weizen, so I will probably come back.

    It is a pity that Bitburger seems to be promoting their brand pils over König-Pilsner (which they also own) to go along Köstritzer lately, as both Kö´s together is such a killer, non-Bavarian, combo.

    I've had a few lately. But the two that really stood out were Founder's CBS. My 1st time with it. And New Holland Dragon's Milk Oatmeal Cookie Reserve. Both were truly extraordinary.

    Going to Chattanooga tomorrow, one of my favorite beer stores has this in stock. I'll try to buy a few singles. Thanks for the tip. This is pure Southern Culture right here. You make me want to try this.

    My mom found a 6 pack of Licher Weizen (bottled) at Aldi. I drank this 6 several years ago, and wish I could find more, it was an enjoyable weissbier. I love Kostrizer (which I can get). and I can find Konig-Pilsner and Bitburger somewhat regularly.

    @The-Adjunct-Hippie told me it was epic. He wasn't wrong. I'll be interested in what you think.

    Hey man, head to Imbibe - they have BOGO Fifty-Fifty Eclipse bombers. It's an insane deal. I'm not sure if they have the Moon Pie stout in stock (but Naked River is just down the street)...but if you like barrel aged stouts, that's about the best deal going. Good luck :slight_smile:
