    I tried this stuff a while back and while somewhat potent, they tasted FAR too sweet. Try this instead if you wanna balance the blueberries and beer:

    Mehh..more a novelty than anything else...certainly not the norm for me. Besides...it's out of Baldwinsville-had to support Upstate Ny. (Although I haven't purchased a Utica Club in 10 years.)

    RD, can't go wrong with beer made my monks...or Belgians.

    Rage...know of a good brewery in the Atlanta area?

    Oh, it's a Bud product? That's he only brewery in b-ville.

    Matt's still sells a lot of Utica Club, and doesn't spend a penny on advertising on it. All the old codgers still pick it up. Sales of it have actually been increasing.

    Was just about to say that. Sweetwater Blue is pretty good.

    Frostlich, if you want an upstate beer that packs a wallop, pick up Saranac's Imperial IPA. I am useless after a 6 pack.

    Try this stuff, Orange...they only brew it once or twice a year and it usually sells pretty fast. I usually reserve a few bottles at the beer store:

    Sweetwater (of course) is good...great balance in a fruited beer. Atlanta Brewing Company puts out "Red Brick Ale" which is good. There's also Terrapin that puts out a "Wake 'N Bake" Coffee Oatmeal Stout (although I think they had to change the name) that is EXCELLENT and also 5 Seasons which is a local brew pub that makes their own stuff for their places only...they experiment with a lot of different types and they are very good.

    I had this recently and completely agree. When i was at school back in the day, I toured the Saranac brewery, great place. Their offerings were about all I drank (in terms of kind brews) throughout college and it was CHEAP, like the Pale Ale was $3.99 a sixer.

    All of a sudden everyone in America is drinking super-hopped ales.

    But dogfish does make a quality product. Hopped up, but balanced nicely. I like their ales a lot better than Sierra Nevada.

    I've never had the 120 minute. I go half and half between the 60 and 90 minute. I'll have to get some next time it's available.

    I agree with Timmy too...I prefer Dogfish over Sierra Nevada...although I do have 2 bottles of their Torpedo ready for tonight :)

    That's what I love about Saranac...good quality beer, and a very reasonable price point. Wegman's recently droped the price to 6.99 a sixer (IIPA is 9.99). I'd pick Saranac over a bunch of 9.99 sixers, and not for price point alone. Their Pale Ale is my go to beer when at a bar that has limited selection. Up here almost every bar has Saranac on tap.

    I like Dogifsh stuff, but I dunno, they are very rich to my palate. I can have 1 or 2 and then I gotta switch off. I wanna saw it was the Raison De Etre I tried.

    I wish they did down here, but at least Sweetwater is good and readily available everywhere. At lot of places here are carrying New Belgium as well and I love their stuff.

    That's why I love the stuff. You bring it to a party and no one else will touch it.


    More for me!

    I tried to get Freestater on the Dogfish bandwagon, but I don't think I had any luck.:dunno:

    Yeah, I can't do IPAs at all, they taste like eating a handful of flowers to me. Some are OK, but the ridiculous ones are tough for me.

    At one point...every hophead said the same thing. Then one day, before you know what happened, you're saying "Sierra Nevada Pale Ale? Nah, I feel like some hops...":yes:

    Nah, not this guy Bro, I tried, I really did. The most I can do is the new Sam Adams brew that just came out, the Saranac Pale Ale, the New Belgium "2 Degrees Below" and "Hoptober" and that's about it.
