    No, I'm kinda-sorta living in Florida right now. Been here since November, just living in hotels that my job puts me in. But, Gainesville isn't exactly close to Austin, TX, either. You might be able to talk to a craft distributor about landing some JK.

    Victory, please bottle your Kolsch beer!

    Cheers!

    P.S. My apologies to the Let's Bottle Victory Kolsch committee members for my delayed post. Better late than never?

    P.S.S. @Starkbier, one more reminder!?!:rolling_eyes:

    We do get tons of requests for that. The only thing we would need is a mother carton to house 6 different 4-packs (or 4 different 6-packs).

    Something to consider for sure.

    Not new, per se. However, Word is Deep Ellum will be canning their Dream Crusher, their double IPA. Previously it's been a rotational release. Excited they'll be adding to their year round lineup.

    As far as new variants/styles...wishe DE or Community would do a Brown Ale.

    I'd like to see Toppling Goliath kick out a sour. Apparently they have a sour yeast strain they are experimenting with, but have no clue when they'll find something worthy of releasing.

    Munich Helles and Munich Dunkel from Great Lakes Brewing. All of their lagers are great, and I am certain they would do a great job with those two.

    Lagunitas Cappuccino Stout in a widget can
    Wish someone made a good readily available Lager that wasn't Sam Adam Boston Lager or GLB Eliot Ness. Not a huge fan of the style, but it serves a purpose and I think the style needs more American craft brewer "exploration". I dunno, maybe I'm on crack who knows.

    BA Yeti + variants from Great Divide.

    I'd like to see Crooked Stave try their hand at something other than wild ales. I know they have some things in the works.

    I'd like to see some of my fav Chicago breweries like Half Acre, Rev, and Pipeworks try to make some wild ales.

    I finally had Victory White Monkey yesterday. I enjoyed it greatly but was underwhelmed by what it was supposed to be. It really was more like a wine and less like a tripel as the white wine flavors permeated the palate more than the spiciness of the original beer.

    The Trillium brew was nothing like that. It was a sour. It hit your palate almost like lemon juice. Then it faded into an oaky richness that reminded me a little of a camp fire. In the tail end of the aftertaste I could just detect a subtle wine flavor. It was amazing. The kind of beer that you have to think about each sip for ten minutes after you take it. Unfortunately I think they only made one barrel of the stuff

    An imperial version of Tumbler would be great, but I'd be giddy if SN just decided to bring Tumbler back again for Fall 2014. To anybody from SN out there - please, please, please with maple sugar on top! It was one of you best beers.

    I'd like to see Southern Tier do a barrel version of Choklat. As it is, Choklat is one of my favorite stouts. I really like ST's bourbon barrel version of Backburner, so we know they can do barrel aged well.

    I'd also like to see Victory do an Imperial Red or a more malt forward DIPA.

    Westbrook Orange Bliss aged in Grand Marnier barrels. Getting a little tired of barrel-aged beers, but I'd make the effort for this one.

    Victory Port Barrel Aged Hoppy Stout

    Something like Storm King, aged in Port or Brandy barrels.

    I tried something similar at home, but just added some port before carbing instead of aging in barrels, and everyone loved it!

    Dogfishhead does a lot of low abv stuff. Namaste is pretty decent, very original tasting brew and ingredients and under 5%. Lots of of other stuff as well they do and all of it is solid IMO. Lots of DFH haters on here but I'm on board with them.

    Yeah definitely love Amazeballs, but meant an NYC-based brewery. Plus while I love Amazeballs, to me it's 'merely' very good. I'm talking something that will blow my mind that I can get regularly, that will stop me craving What is Enlightenment / Edward!

    yeah, other half seemed to want to be that brewery, but mentioning them in the same sentence as what is enlightenment is... let's say, "extreme overstatement".

    kelso's industrial IPA can hang with the VTers i think, but they don't really transition with the lower ABV beers. bk and sixpoint have their strengths, but a shaun hill worthy APA is definitely not one of them.

    at least you can grab a train to NEBCO and get fuzzy baby ducks when it's on.

    DHF needs to brew a Hefeweizen. Apparently, they do brew one that is available at their brewpub in limited quantities. That, however, does me no good in California.

    Boulevard: English barleywine

    And if they happened to add a Smokestack Limited Edition that involved putting said English barleywine into Templeton Rye barrels, I wouldn't be mad about that either.
