    Just picked up a couple beers on this weekend's Indiana jaunt, but they were both personal wants.

    Cheers to @Davepoolesque for hitting all the highest marks. The entire classic lineup of HF saisons, an old time want of E., the latest WoL, and all the Alchemist hops. Glad I could share in the VT trip from afar. Takes me back to last summer. Fantastic box!

    I passed on the Zero Discipline last week bc of the $23/4-pack pricing. Is it REALLY a NE style IPA? Is it that food or just more 18th Street price gouging?

    I got two 4-packs from 18th St's release and it's definitely NE Style: hazy-orange and quite tropical. it's good, but still not worth the $20+ price tag. I'd only pay $20/4-pack for Tree House, though, honestly. And maybe Trillium.

    I don't like IPAs, so I understand that my comment might not make sense to some, and I have no reference for the cost of any of the NE IPAs.

    ...But...from the perspective of cost, it seems like an IPA can't possible cost as much to make as a BA stout (from creation of the stout to the implicit cost associated with procuring and storing barrels, etc.). More than $20 for a 4pack for a non BA beer seems ridiculous. Most people already think $20 for a 4 pack BA beer seems to be very close to the cost of being 'too much.'

    I typically am very underwhelmed by 18th Street. Maybe that's because they're priced in the upper tier of the high end of craft beer so I expect to be blown away. Have yet to find anything that knocks my socks off. Most of their stuff is bland and no real character to the beers - seems like they just want to be very safe, but again, they're priced so high so grow some balls and knock it out of the park. I don't buy them anymore.

    Yeah, man, I'm starting to agree with you. Hunter Vanilla is easily the best beer I've had from them, but at $19/4-pack for something non-BA'd, it's a tough justification. Under Crown is pretty good, but again, probably not worth the price. I don't know if it has to do with the fact that they serve high-ish end food and have a somewhat renown chef (I think?) that their prices are above norm? Anyway, yeah, plenty of other options out there. I respect their owner though and what he's done/how far he's come and he seems like a cool dude. I'm assuming they're having success and if so, keep doin' what your doin.'

    Yeah I've been to the brewery a couple times and it's a decent time and the food is really good - that's a fact! I've met Drew the brewmaster/founder as well and he knows what he's doing. I'm just being a little critical I guess bc I've just been disappointed and with their high prices I can't justify the purchase - also they're local so I feel like we're on the same team so I can be critical. They are doing well financially for sure and lots of growth going on and wider distribution as well. *im not a hater*

    My latest haul from Lewis Bros. Market. From left to right: Singlecut Heavy Boots of Lead, (rye whiskey barrel aged imperial stout w/ cacao and vanilla) Singlecut Workers Are Going Home double dry-hopped DIPA, Paradox Brewing Paradox Pilsner, and Bell's Third Coast Old Ale--which they tossed in for free because they're awesome people. :slight_smile:

    I grew up in Linthicum and used to go to Whitey's a lot! Not so much anymore, if I'm over that way I usually hit Christos in Ferndale.

    Little score after work.

    Of course this weeks fresh batch of Old Nation M-43 (4pk), Lagunitas 12th of Never Ale (6pk), Shorts Brew SLURM!(6pk)

    [​IMG]

    Was kind of cool that the bottle shop broke apart the 12 pk of Never Ale to sell better, pretty clever IMO

    Also super excited for the SLURM!
