Schneeider Tap 7 Original (Great beer at a great price)
Tempest 2012 - a couple months has really done this beer good, and seems like it will hold up really well

Hold on there ... Alesmith is in Buffalo now????????


They had plenty of it at Village Beer, but just the Yulesmith. I remember hearing about Buffalo getting old stock of this beer years ago but this is definitely from this years release. Also managed to snag a growler of 10th Anniv. Ruination at VB.


Mike - Can't comment on Elysian as I've only had the one brew, but I certainly recommend that one.

Thanks Cale. I read in a BA thread that Buffalo got just the Summer Yulesmith. We can only hope that leads to more (like Speedway).

All good my friend. Couldn't find the stout but the IPA was excellent!

Stone Ruination 10th Anniversary! Shared a growler with Len and Cale and their better halfs at Len's this afternoon. Awesome score, thanks Cale! My red racer just doesn't quite taste the same now...

Edit: and those others that Cale mentioned.

Anchor Steam draft in SF. It has a definite German hop accent IMO, the mineral side of the taste and a touch of clove. This isn't new, I got a similar profile on the last trip a few years ago (and before that too).

I don't get any American hopping in it although there may be.

Very tasty, it reminds me of a good alt beer. The bottled one is good but doesn't really deliver the taste of the fresh draft.
