    IPA: Community Mosaic. Price/6 pack is tough to beat.
    Easy drinking pool beer: Real Ale white
    Something darker: Dogfish Indian Brown

    If I could get it here, Two Hearted would replace all three on that list. COME TO TEXAS BELL'S! We'd buy it up.

    SNPA for me. I will say that Boulevard pale ale is tasty and consistent as well, and I do on occasion (when I get a hankering for it, I just have to have it) enjoy newcastle brown ale, both of which have yet to let me down.
    Edit: After seeing it many times on here and having that jump my memory, I will add SN Celebration. Always good, and always a purchase when it comes out.

    yes it was a bad mistake, thought it would be a good dessert beer that night and did share them all including a Hoptimum in-between... brought out the sour whiskey flavor and until that point I thought BCBS could never let me down

    Two beers that are always solid, and always easily available: Dragon's Milk and Fat Tire.

    They helped get me into craft beer, they are not the best beers in the world but they are always solid.

    Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin.

    I just don't understand how this can be so highly rated. It's an atrocity! The basic Sculpin is excellent so I bought the grapefruit (both are on the top 250 list). Am I missing something....I would love to hear comments....

    I find the grapefruit much too strong and distracting. I expected a sweeter more subtle flavor to support the high rating.

    Oh well....please educate me...
