I enjoyed them a lot for a non-traditional take on that style. I am not a fan of most traditional octoberfest beers though. I crave hops.

The stores by my house only ever have the IPA, none of the specialty stuff.

I heard a rumor the other day, not sure how true it is but I heard that the Small Town Not Your Dad's Root Beer is nothing but normal root beer with Everclear in it.

I doubt it, traditionally alcoholic root beer is fermented similar to normal beer to make alochol, they sugar is added after the yeast goes into hibernation to add sweetness. If they just added everclear the aroma and taste of alcohol would be very strong.

Assholes are slacking on the beer talk.

Hopefully going to be getting some of this years Bourbon County Stouts from Goose Island.

I went up to Specher a couple weekends ago. Awesome tour, beer was very good. Learned some pretty cool facts about their soda's too. $5 tour, 4 beer tastings and unlimited soda.

Flesk Brewing and Arcade did a collaboration beer and I went to the release party on Monday. Arch Nemesis is their smoked brown ale with ancho chiles. Definitely smokey and the ancho chiles really came through. Worth the try but not something I would buy again, unless I was cooking with it.

New Glarus Apple Ale has rolled out again, probably one of my favorites. Makes Reds taste like goat piss, not that it doesn't anyway

Its average, and their american and hoppy beers are uninspired. Unibroue's la fin du monde is a good tripel, and chimay's as well.

I go to the Sprecher's in Lake geneva almost every sunday in the summer, not talking out of my ass. btw

I never thought much of Specher at all. Never really tried them, thought they were just a soda company that tried beer. After visiting I was surprised. I like a few of their beers. The Brown Pub Ale and Amber are pretty good beers.

I had a Boulder Shake Chocolate Porter Nitro last night and it was like drinking a fucking milkshake. It was an awesome way to end a meal. Had a nice, thick, creamy head that I wanted to rub into my beard
