    Haven't planned properly and need to grab some drinkable beers for the weekend.

    Any suggestions?

    Lots of Sucks, All Day IPA, and Flower Power for me. Probably going to be getting a case of Prima Pils soon too.

    This turn of the seasons usually means Kolsch-killing time for me. Stoudts' Karnival Kolsch is my go-to; great beer for day drinking on those glorious first few 60-70 degree days.

    Nugget Nectar is still being bottled. Picked up some with a bottle on date of early March. It was better than the first batch I bought this year.

    Troegs Headwaters Pale Ale is a good one, along with DC Brau Corruption Pale.

    New Southern Tier Live is delicious. The brand new Full Tilt Brewing Pale Ale is awesome, but is more IPA (which is a good thing for me). On the double side, fresh Evolution Lot 6 is amazing. Cheers!

    Thanks for the suggestions, all. Saw Southern Tier Live at Maxs last night, should have had one.

    You're right. Darn. Anyhow, that victory headwaters is good.

    To be sure! It'll be a staple in the fridge through the summer.

    Personally I'd expect better from that brewery. It was more sour than I expected.

    And both are damn delicious. Just finishing my keg of Troegs Pale, terrific beer.

    That being said, I am once again returning to Nugget Nectar for the second time this year. New kegs were just released and I got my second one of the year. Nice.
