    I will compile a list of these later and edit this post but here's the beers I got this past weekend in the Twin Cities.

    https://imgur.com/a/MlP2R

    OK, starting from the top left:

    Fulton's Sweet Child of Vine IPA
    Lift Bridge Farm Girl Saison
    Lift Bridge Hop Dish IPA (the most MN beer name ever)
    Elysian Space Dust IPA (finally get to find out what you guys have been talking about)
    Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro
    The Summit IPA Variety Pack - Experimental Hop, Wee IPA, Saga IPA, and Imperial IPA
    Rogue's Furious IPA
    Bell's Two Hearted Ale IPA (the holiest of my holys)
    Indeed's Let it Ride IPA (had two of these last night and it's incredible)
    Lupulin's Blissful Ignorance Double IPA

    Photo two is a lineup of ales I got from a friend:

    Barrel Theory - these are 750 mil. cans! Each one is different:
    Cin City Milk Stout w/cinnamon and vanilla
    Purple Lamborghini Berliner with raspberry, boysenberry, and um... marionberry
    Shooter McGavin Double IPA
    Rain Drops Northeast IPA

    Founders Backwoods Bastard barrel-aged Scotch Ale
    Founders KBS (you know about this devilry)
    Goose Island Bourbon County Stout (I'm not a fan of Goose Island but it was a gift and I'll let it age for a few years)
    Sierra Nevada 2017 Bigfoot Barleywine

    Love the Fulton beers! And they have a cool taproom a short walk away from Target Field for gameday fun.

    I just came back from a brief trip to Charlotte, NC, and had a chance to stop at the Olde Mecklenburg Brewery. I had a couple in their Festhall, along with their crabcakes, and it gets an unequivocal thumbs up by me and the wife.

    Further more, within a city block or two, there are two other micro-breweries and a cider brewery, so one could pass quite a bit of the day there. Alas, the others went unsampled, but that's okay. As I come to understand my own tastes, I'm fairly consistently in the German & English styles camp. Their Ninth Anniversary Altbeir was particularly good.

    Yep. I know OMB well, and usually have at least a sixer in the fridge from them. The space they built out there is really awesome.

    Like you, I'm firmly in the German and English style camp. I love pilsners and lagers and seek those styles out wherever I go.

    Wifey and I will be in San Francisco and then Hawai'i this week, and I'm sure I'll make some time to sample some local beverages.
    I want to dynamite your mind with love tonight.

    Wifey and I were in Orlando, Fla., this past week to go to Universal Studios and to check out the surrounding area for retirement potential. While at Universal we had an expensive lunch at a so-so restaurant. I had a Bell's Two-Hearted Ale. Absolutely loved it. Best part of the whole meal. A nice pale ale with subtle hop flavor; just right.

    Were you in any of the Harry Potter worlds? They have a really good stout brewed just for them by a local brewery..Can't recall the names of either though!

    We did the Hogswarts Castle ride (three times in one day). Wish I had known about that beer; I would have looked for it.

    One of the more established microbreweries opened up a tap room, literally a city-block away from my apartment: Sante Andairius Rustic Ales.

    What they have on tap exceeds what they list on the website. Downside: they don't sell flights. Upside: a delicious herbal pilsner called the "Collective We," and a rather smokey brown ale called, "Old Ghosts." So I had the pleasure of walking through the rain into the taproom, handing the lad behind the bar my growler, and asking him to, "Fill it up with Old Ghosts."

    It was a poetic moment.

    I asked the barmaid for a "Cranky Wench" the other day and she seemed to find it funny.

    They certainly have a better selection of German style beer than you get in the part of Germany I live. It's a little bit irritating that they are named after a part of East Germany
    and the beers are mostly West, North and South German style.

    Hot dog! The local beer shop (Salud in Charlotte in case you’re curious) just got a big shipment of Jester King! Farmhouse Texas style beers are in my future.

    I think some of the original European settlers of Charlotte were from Mecklenburg, and that's what inspired the name. I don't know that there is more of a connection than that. Both history and geography can get hazy this side of the Atlantic.

    As long as the beer is great it doesn't matter much

    It's pretty hard to get something else than industrial Pilsener in a Biergarten where I live (West Germany)...

    Charlotte (named after a queen) is in Mecklenburg County.

    OMB’s founder traveled (or lived?) in Germany. When he came back to NC, he wanted to drink the same beers he drank there. This according to the brewery tour.

    They’ve got a Spring bock out now. It’s delicious.

    Wasn't sure on which thread (Currently Reading or Beer Snob) to post this, but decided to go here. I'm currently in the midst of a wonderful book, The Comic Book Story of Beer. It's like a graphic novel or Classics Illustrated on the history of beer.

    While reading it last night, I enjoyed a Spencer IPA from the Trappist monastery in Spencer, Mass. Delish!
