I'll drink somewhere if they have a green Bigwheel on the ceiling...

LOLz.  That place looks great.

If you're ever in Des Moines, it's a must stop.  Probably one of the best beer bars in the country.

Farthest North I've seen LO is at the HEB in Waco. Usually stop by there everytime I'm headed back up for that and other various HEBisms

I can't imagine any American bar really comparing to some of the ancient German beer halls, or some venerable British pub.

They have 262 beers on tap currently.  All American craft beers.  If you want to shit on that or accuse me of being hyperbolic, go for  it, but I'm guessing there aren't many places that top that.

It was just a goof, not trying to shit it.  missed the mark I guess.

SF Beer Week and Pliny the Younger season again. It may be me, but it doesnt feel like the event it used to be. Probably cause every bar in the city has it now. 601f99300e442f6e8843e90cffed132a.jpg

American Solera's new place. Having an Ella IPA.f7b539e3a077e1bc72f893ff89d920b4.jpgab6d7eb797b0486300a2aa7af6c53297.jpg915f6d0b54af49775a8e94f778860e8c.jpg

I live a mile away and ride my bike here regularly. It's one of my happy places. Chase Healy's kid go to the same school as mine and he donates beer to most of our fundraisers. And it's usually one of the pricier ones too. Last time it was An Offering of Guava, which sells for $16 a four pack. We had a keg which we could drink off for free with paid admission. It was awesome.

If you were there, Cabin Boys across the parking lot is a good atmosphere too and their beers are fine. The snobs around here turn their nose at it, but it's dumb. They make good craft beer. Marshall's next door is also really good. I think they are severely underrated because they are completely unknown outside of this city.

Spending a night in OKC in April.  Besides Prairie what should I check out?

Stonecloud is where I'd go. It's making some waves and they have a decent taproom. Roughtail makes good stuff too and they're opening a new taproom soon, will probably be open by April. I'm a fan of Anthem but never been to the taproom. There are others, I'm just not as up to speed on OKC these days as I used to be.

Picked up some St. Arnold's Commitment. Weird name, but turns out it's DR18 which just happens to be one of my favorite beers. Fuck yes.

It's a great place. I'll definitely be visiting again.

I saw Marshalls and Cabin Boys, but we didn't stop in. Never heard of Cabin Boys, but Marshalls was one of the biggest names going when I lived up there. They make solid beers.

Good? Tupper is one of my dentist FIL’s longtime patients. My wife runs the practice and “Tupp” brings beer that winds up in my fridge to every appointment.

@‘stache, did American Solera open another taproom? I’ve been to the small one that’s just South of downtown. I’ve been to Cabin Boys but it was maybe 2 years ago.

I take it you’ve never been to a school fundraiser. Our elementary school fundraiser is a fantastic binge drinking event.

St Arnold is coming out with a shit ton of new beers early this year: double art car, commitment, a blonde ale, and a juicy ipa.

Well all ours have been at the school, and I know they frown upon/arrest you for bringing alcohol on school property.

The drinking fundraisers are always organized by the PTA and offsite. Ours is at Easy Tiger.  The school isn't involved.

Quick Austin overnight trip for my birthday. Beer highlights:

 

Pinthouse in Round Rock has become a go-to stop on our way into town for lunch and drinks (& pick up what’s canned to bring home).

Oddwood has also become a staple and has games for the kids to play.

Checked out Southern Heights for the first time in a while. Good stuff as always.

Austin Beerworks later on as it’s also a staple and was near hotel to boot.

Sunday morning routine for a while has been to hit up Jester King right when they open at noon. Love the vibe of that place plus their beers. That new DDH IPA (especially the variant they have at the Pasture Bar with the Lotus hop) is quite tasty.

On the way out of out, we went by Central Machine Works. While kinda spare that they only have two of their beers on tap (Citra Pale Ale and Pils), both were tasty and the place is really great looking. Really good food to boot.

8 hours straight of a surgery today that I’m paying for the opportunity to assist in prompted a bedtime vanilla noir that’s been in my fridge aging for a day like this.

(512) pecan porter looks ready to go to market anytime now

BUT ... it looks like they'll be boxed into four packs, which makes me assume me two things about how they'll fuck up this hype/market excitement:

1) they'll try to convince the market that this is some superduper special opportunity to OWN YOUR VERY OWN PECAN PORTER and that a beer fan should feel fortunate to even see packaging, much less six pack packaging. So, they'll try to sell us on $10.99 four packs I bet; especially given the superfluous packing.

2) Thats a lot of fuckin packaging waste for a core beer. I thought Martin House were assholes for packing two limited run cans into a huge box, and yes, Martin House sucks overall, but this seems just as bad. Its a mainstay that is probably the 2nd or 3rd most accessible beer in austin. Just give us six packs. and in cans. dummies.

Yea that’s silly if they’re 12oz. As you said it’s super accessible, I get it on tap up here in Dallas regularly. That said I bet people eat it up.

I'm at the Anatole for a conference and was pleased to find Peticolas in walking distance, as I've read about it on here but never been around to try it.

 

It's amazeballs, like barleywine heaven.

 

Is Pegasus good, or anything else nearby worth checking out? Otherwise, I'm just coming back here for the next couple nights. 53711a38fd913bf7a3aab976e961b3bf.jpg
