    I cannot think of a better beer for the price. $3.99 for a bomber of this liquid sex:

    Last one I had (8 hours ago...)was "The Gimp," the latest in the Dank Tank by Sweetwater. It was good, but I think I need to follow the bottle directions and age one or two of these and see how it matures...

    Where did you hear that? The beer obviously didn't tell you.

    a little early to start for me, but I had my first nugget nectar last night. I loved it. I easily loved it more that lagunitas sucks. I know they aren't really in the same realm, but I enjoyed it!

    Larry's latest lager trial. Faint fruit and grainy notes. Pretty solid.

    Damn fine selection. Lagunitas is still best beer for your money, in my humble opinion.

    This is really refreshing, like a cherry soda. I don't typically enjoy sweetness in beer, but when it's so far removed from the taste of beer as this is it's really enjoyable. From the description on the back label it sure reads like a soda: water, fruit juice (cherries 13.5%, elderberries 1.5%), barley malt, sugar, wheat, flavourings, hops, antioxidants E300. "Belgian beer with lambic and flavoured with cherries", so I take it this is kriek in the same way Swedish cider is cider :p . It sure is tasty though.

    One thing that blew me away on my Maiden voyage to 3 Floyds was how the food was insanely delicious!
    P.S. I know one of the brewers, big Rugby and football (soccer) fan. Have enjoyed many pints with him cheering @ The Globe Pub.

    So I had a Nugget nectar and a Ruthless in the new Dogfish glasse and boy what carbonation on them both. The glass does wonders on that end!

    Annoyed that after loving this brewery and trying just about everything they bottle and send out across the USA, never tried this famous badboy.

    Enjoy yourself.
