    The bigger issue isn't even people like us. I can go into local stores and I know what 95% of things cost within a $1-2 if not exactly. The same is probably true of you and CT BA's. But people who are just getting into beer? Or people who are more anxious about asking employees for help? That's fucking shitty for them.

    That said -- the guy working in that store was super, super nice, they did have a great selection and all of the singles in the front coolers were priced (and well). I'd for sure go back.

    Does anyone know of any sweet dessert/candy stouts being distro'd in Hartford county? I've got a hankering for something sweet (marshmallow, vanilla, chocolate). Long shot but I figured its worth the ask before finding an alternate solution to this craving.

    I feel like there must be something from Omnipollo that could satisfy this craving, but I'm not sure about which specific beers.

    You are correct, there is the noa pecan stout. Thanks for the reminder. It's also the only one I can find locally. Was hoping for some vanilla action!

    Any idea if CT will be getting W00tstout six packs? I know there are bombers out there, but I want sixers.

    Not sure how sweet it is, but Avery Vanilla Bean Stout is available.

    Never thought about Avery, good call. Unfortunately, I'm seeing this too late but there's always next time. Grabbed a couple of Dugges coffee vanilla black from Harvest. Great selection there.

    The collab one with Weihenstephan? How's it drinking if that's the case (or should I say half case)?

    pbrian Defender (689) Feb 8, 2001 Connecticut

    Much less than half a case now... It's good, but I'll have to admit, a bit anti climatic. With this collab, I was expecting to see unicorns while drinking it, instead all i got was a damn fine Octoberfest. A bit more "American" than I was expecting. What do I mean by that? I don't know either. Like a said, damn fine though, go get yourself some, you'll enjoy it, unicorns be damned.

    I stopped expecting to see unicorns jump out of beer a loooong time ago, haha. I'll have to check that one out, though. I'm a big fan of Weihenstephan.

    I’m staying the night just south of Hartford in Wethersfield. Any good shops/stores or breweries to grab some beers (preferably regional stuff I can’t get in Baltimore)? I’m into hoppy stuff and sour/wild. Also anything not too far off the route back to Baltimore is good.

    Preferably not too far out of the way, won’t have much time to explore. I’m gonna try to stop in New England Brewing or Counter Weight on the way home tomorrow.

    Wood n Tap in Rocky Hill has a good tap list. The hop evolution for them is good. Usually some nebco on tap.

    If I weren’t away I’d invite you over, my hometown and my beer fridge is overloaded!

    Jeez guys, I had to go three pages deep to find this thread, we’re slacking!

    Anyway, I was excited to find a stack of Rothaus Pils at Amazon.com, err I mean Wholefoods, today on sale for $13.99. Until I saw BB date of 6.10.18. I assume that means Oct 6, but still.... it’s probably fine, just odd that I see it for the first time there and it’s almost out of code. They must have had a bunch at the distributor that they’re trying to get rid of.
