    King Sue was hands down the best thing I had at EBF. Once I had my first taste, the line for their table suddenly didn't look as long...

    Recently tried Pseudo Sue and its good dont get me wrong but its not like I would drive to Iowa just to get Pseudo Sue. Living in Michigan, head like you are going to Iowa and stop around Chicago. Go to 3floyds, then Half Acre, and pick up some Pipeworks and Surly at Binnies. Drive back and repeat.

    Also worth noting Hudson,WI, which is a short drive from Minneapolis

    There was quite a bit of buzz at the Great Taste of the Midwest about Toppling Goliath. PseudoSue was the first beer I tried of theirs and was very impressed. One of my buds just had the Golden Nugget and raved about how good it was. Seeing that Sosus is supposed to be great too. I think they are for real. Can't wait to try their stouts.

    I'll definitely be attempting to trade for some of this liquid gold!

    Yes sir, always have growler fills and get a good assortment of bottles. Ive also heard they are really considering rochester / MN soon. Unfortunately that would require going through a distributor (stupid liquor laws)

    One more thing to add, Chad and Clark are some sweet dudes (Ive never actually met them), but, they always chime in on the Midwest forum to let the community know whats going on over at TG, dispell rumors, and give insight to their current and future plans. Wish these guys nothing but the best

    Not sure when the next batch of Sue will be released but would be happy to help someone out

    Heres why they are awesome

    I had several of their beers at Hunahpu's Day this year and I was really impressed by every single thing that they brought.

    One of the stars?! It was THE star for me. Mornin' Delight is the best coffee stout/non BA stout I've encountered. King Sue stands up with Double Sunshine.

    OP, TG is ridiculous.

    They make great beers. Solid dudes. I also just had my first Zombie Dust(that was four days old) and I prefer Sue. Their stouts are awesome.

    oddly, i've liked everything i've had from TG, but was severely disappointed in Sosus at EBF... on the other hand, I was also let down by Tree House Juice Machine (but WOW Double Shot was something amazing...)

    sidenote: I love IPA's/Double IPA's, and don't prefer them to stouts (love them as well!) so I wasn't biased in this judgement.

    Sosus was great, so was Juice Machine, you're crazy. I asked them if they'd consider wider distribution and they laughed because they said every other person has asked that same question..

    I heard they are going to produce a good amount of mornin' delight this year. Anyone know any specifics on it?

    Geezus, man, it's IOWA!!! Why do you have to bring down the only good thing they have going? (other than ISU in the Sweet 16--GO CYCLONES!) Just let them have this!

    Moring delight was mind blowing. Seriously best beer I had all night at EBF.
