    Let's get another month of good beer rollin'! We are already a day behind!

    I was at Washington Square in WBL last night and they had Seven on tap. They also had the Deschutes 88 smoked porter on tap.

    Just discovered this last night

    Grumpy's has Minnesota Mondays; $2 pints of almost all MN beer (bad axe was the only exclusion). They didnt have anything too special, but lots of solid offerings for $2. furious, cynic, hop dish, midnight ryder, saga, sweet child, a pour decisions, lucid, and about 10 more im not thinking of... Plenty of tasty beer for cheap!

    I suppose this was July when I had it. Pat's Tap had Seviin as of 2 days ago. Might still. Either way, I just discovered that they choose a tap for all month "happy hour" prices. They have Southern Tier 2xIPA for $3.25. Pretty good. Damn delicious at $3.25. Also 2 for 1 lunch if you have a Chinook Book (posted this in the June edition too).

    New Holland's Night Tripper is on at Republic Uptown. I don't find that too often. $7 featured beer, so no happy hour pricing.

    Bulldog uptown: Bell's Roundhouse (why this isn't a regular release from them, I have no idea). Also a flashback beer for me, but it has been many years and many miles since I have seen Tilburg Dutch Brown.

    Yes, making the rounds in uptown, but trust me that I am not consuming everything that I am posting. Just interesting finds.

    Muddy Waters: Ska/Brash collab; Skankin Dirty. Tyranena Scurvy. Dark Horse One.

    "but trust me that I am not consuming everything"

    It'd be a lot cooler if you were.

    Not under the circumstances, because I was driving. As it was, I had short pours when possible.

    Ah, you are killing me. After the Umphrey's McGee show last night, I tried to go to TH but couldn't grab street parking so we moved on to the Polka Lounge at Nye's.

    Sour Brunette sounds amazing and I would love to try this. I am not able to get over there until the weekend though. How long do the special releases usually stick around at Barley John's? Would you expect there to be some left on Saturday?

    I am pretty sure Urine Trouble is supposed to go on this week at the taproom. Anybody have any details on this? It's already Wednesday so I'd guess soon.

    Checked out Stout's last night for the first time. Nice place! The SeVIIn was gone. The others listed were still there. There was another Castle Danger there. Extra Pale Lager (EPL) Very tasty!

    I went over there for a taste last night and have to say its not their best brew. Its song is just 'lactic lactic lactic lactic lactic' Not in a good guezue-y way either.

    True - I choked down a few gulps. Not ketchup but overly lactic.

    So good wasn't it? Creamier and less hoppy tasting than in bottles. Ska and Brash's Dirty Skankin is on too. I was surprised to see Iowa's Peace Tree Red Rambler on. Light on the palette though.

    Sounds like it is not for everyone but I still think I will have to head over and try it. We need more sours/wilds to be made by MN brewers!
