Drank a handful of their beers this weekend - If you want something good and different thats off the beaten path - buy their Knot Stock. You'll likely only want a few of them per sitting but its a damn fine interesting twist.. mild black peppery goodness.

3 seconds after the 1st sip you'll say to yourself, 'self.. what the f' was that?' ... then you'll be on your third and ready for a change.

not going back and reading everything right now, just making a recommendation:

Bell's Amber Ale. Drink it. It will make your mouth happy.


If someone has already suggested it, I don't care. (and that person was right)

I believe my local grocery store has that (They have a pretty good selection of specialty beers for a grocery store) and I will bump it up and try it soon then. I do love me some good Amber beer.

I've lost count, but I think there are something like 16-20 breweries within 10 miles of my house.

The latest is Loveland Aleworks, which is down in Loveland (duh) about 7 miles. They just opened on 7/4. So far, they have several brews.

A decent Saison. Nothing spectacular, but solid.

IPA - VERY good. Finally, an IPA where they didn't just hop the shyt out a pale ale. Very palatable.

American Wheat - nicely done for a genre I do not favor. Must have used a different yeast than usual - does not have that "banana-clove" flavor you get get in most wheats.

English Mild - Had high hopes for this one - a moderately dark colored English ale - but I was very disappointed - it is almost as flavorless as Coors Light.

I'll look for it and give it a shot

sad to hear about that English mild - too much emphasis on mild it sounds. maybe trying to offer something to the lighter beer crowd?..

Surprised to hear about the IPA.. interested in trying it if it ever makes its way out here. I'm the same w/every IPA I've tried. I actually don't even bother trying them anymore.

The Big O O'SO Brewing Co. from Plover, WI

been sipin' on a few of these the last hour. As advertised. zippy, crisp tangy and unique.. not quite 'citrusy' but similar in a refreshing manor. Nice for a warm day waiting on pizza.

Might be a while. They are selling to the restaurant next door, but that's the only place other than their tasting room currently available.

Given the quality of their brews, I would give them a 25-30% chance of ever expanding beyond the local market.

I might have said that about New Belgium, though.... I would never have guessed they would be so much more successful than the far better Odell's....

Took a tour of the Moonlight Meadery last weekend. Did some samplings (probably far more than we should have), met the owner, and ended up buying/splitting a case with another couple (including a $50 bottle of Utopian that the other couple got). As far as flavor goes, this stuff is intense... far more than wine. I won't make a habit of drinking mead because a bottle costs the same amount as a bottle of wine, but you only get half the volume. It makes for a nice change of pace once in awhile though. Here's a list of their inventory: http://www.moonlightmeadery.com/content/our-meads My personal favorites were "Blossom" and "Stiletto". Yes, the names are a bit cheeky, but whatever, it's marketing. Owner did tell us that some local distributors couldn't carry a few of the names because they considered them a little too "offensive", yet had no problem carrying things like "Fat Bastard Ale". Ridiculous. They're no worse than the stupid perfume names you see in commercials.

It was pretty good. Have had better Ambers (Though I have drank so many different ones, I can barely remember the names of many of them), but lots and lots of worse ones. Worth picking up though.
