    Christoffel Bier. Very unique pilsener. I'm guessing the fact the it's unfiltered adds to the thick mouthfeel? Anyways, solid brew.

    I can't find this shiz anywhere! I've only seen regular Gonzo once, and it was over $16 for a sixpack. I'm willing to pay that, but not for a beer that I've never tried before.:(

    Founders is really good and Narragansett Porter is under-rated & a great deal in the tallboy cans.

    Aplha Klaus is a bit different that GLEF and Founders Porter. It has a lot more hops to it and feels closer to a Black IPA IMO.

    Most of the ones I love have been mentioned already, but if you are ever near Tennessee grab some Yazoo Sue. It's a delicious porter and is quite smoky.
