    Heading down to the BIG liquor store about 10 miles away and gonna stock up.
    One of the smoother IPA's I have had....and I seem to drink a lot of IPA's......maybe the MRs's will like this one

    Yup. I got turned onto the stuff last Feb. at the Chainsaw Rendezvous in Ridgway, PA. Musta drank about 8-10 every night at a great little pub on the main drag. Fairly potent stuff, but it hard to stop drinking it it's so good. Thankfully I had Lady BK as DD so we could get back to the motel room safely. Live music on week days, $3/bottle for premium beer, $7 for the best frickin' jumbo burgers I ever had in my life... I should move there just for the pubs.

    Dogfish makes the best beers. I enjoy the 90 and 120 minn IPA, Salo Palto, Rasion D'Etre and India brown are awesome as well. Far and away my favorite brewery. Southern Tier- out of NY - Double IPA is good as well.

    That beer is something special. You can go darker/lighter/stronger whatever but if someone is curious about checking out beer that's the one I recommend. Its the perfect landmark and I always go back to it.

    It works this way at my place as well. The stuff she drinks taste nothing like beer. (I don't want to know the price either). There really need another category for some of those fruity beers.

    Do you mean Ulta or TSC Kat? :lol:
    There was a gentleman working in Ulta the other day offering to assist me in picking out some different shades of makeup....plus he offered to give me a free makeover.... :-S I declined because I did not like the way his makeup was applied...not that there is anything wrong with that now... :smirk:
    I guess he just thought I was in need of a new look...dammit... :lol:

    I let a nice lady with an adam's apple help me pick out a shade of lipstick one time. I don't wear it much so I figured who better to help me on that one. She chose well. (she works behind the makeup counter, wasn;t just a random transgender person walking by or anything)

    ETA something about BEER - I'm with you on the dogfish head.
    and yeah, the "girly beers" should have their own category. Especially the fruity ones, I like Purple Haze personally.

    I'd have to say I'm not a big fan of Tractor Supply, but I am thankfull they save me a few trips a month to HD. They've got some usefull items but nothing local. They opened up about 300 yards away from the local Agway that's been in business for about a zillion years. Both have chicks in the Spring, but Agway has a chick swap (that didn't come out right) I mean a chicken-swap where people can mix it up I guess. Not really sure what goes on. One store has locally crafted leather goods vs made in China belts. One store I get gum and candy bars and the other is Birch Beer and raw milk.

    I like the Abita stuff!
    Pyramid Apricot beer is good as well, in the girly beer category.

    Had my first couple of Abitas a couple of weeks ago at a Cajun place. Had the Amber. That is some good stuff.

    What happened to 'Brewmasters'? I thought it was pretty entertaining, though that is the point of view from an admitted beer snob/homebrewer.

    OK, what's the diffrerence between a 60 minute IPA and a 90 minute IPA? Takes longer to drink one of them? :)
