    Rode motorcycles in VT for a week a few months ago. dual sport route a buddy put together.

    Gotta admit, the beers I had there were some of the best I've had. Yes I'm an IPA drinker, and had tried Heady Topper in the past but the beers from Lawsons Finest, literally were some of the best I've ever had including my own brews. Sip of Sunshine started it, but after I made a detour to the brewery, the Double Sunshine and Triple Sunshine were just... better.

    If anyone lives anywhere near their distribution and is headed south thru ATL any time, I'd be glad to pay for some deliveries and meet along your route. :)

    Pretty much my take on it as well. But, I live spitting distance from the Vista location now and really enjoyed sampling a few of their beers and hanging out in the outdoor dog friendly bar area.

    Yes, the “downtown” Vista location. Really cool place. And generally I thought high quality beers.

    As a side note, it’s crazy how many breweries there are in North County now!

    Been about 10 years since I last had it. It's supposed to be easier to get these days.

    Pliny (pronounced "Plinny" for those curious in accuracy) has become easy to get both bottled and draft since they built the new brewhouse. I am not a a big fan of of double IPAs (or hazy anything IPAs of which hazy double and triples are becoming ridiculously fashionable). Pliny is straight up tasty, and a good degree of its excellence is the malt backbone.

    I'm drinking the stone hazy ipa right now. Not bad at all. Been drinking the Lagunitas Supercluster and Bells Lager of the Lakes this week too. Been working with Lagunitas a good bit lately so i've been getting my fill of Pliny when in town there.

    Beer is great but always on the back burner of a good rum for me, paid for it tonight, a double pyrat xo and coke and 1/2 a dozen oysters for 40 bucks. Split between warm water and cold water oysters, as a chef no difference in taste, it's an oyster, same as bacon, there is better bacon, but it's still bacon

    My IPA 'pantry' currently. The Hopsecutioner is my daily go-to beer. Been on sale at Kroger for over a year now.

    My opinion, I can't brew a beer that tastes good so I am going to throw a ton of Cascade hops into it and call it an IPA. With that being said Faubourg brewery in New Orleans does a satsuma IPA that isn't bad. Their dark lager called Blackened Voodoo is my current favorite. I have noticed a dark lager trend going around the breweries here in the south.

    We were up there in 2019. Of course my daughters fiancee had to visit The Alchemist. I could hardly stand the smell of the place, but he came home with the same cases of beer you show. I had much more fun at the Von Trapp brewery. They had normal German beers there. I came home with a few cases of Helles myself.

    I had 2021 BCBS over the holiday this weekend. The molasses and plum taste was pretty overbearing. I much prefer the balance of Founder’s KBS.
