Shows up as "Real Ale" when I went to quote it. Interesting...Why did your post come out "Realtor Ale"

You've got West Coast and East Coast and the blends in between when it comes to hops variants. The more pine like brews are from the East coast, I prefer West Coast IPA's. IBU's come into play and some folks taste buds simply don't jive with the hoppy brews.


One of my go to's is Dogfish 90 minute when I find it on tap.

Try Sierra Nevada on tap some time, it's fairly mellow.

90 min on tap is delicious.

I always recommend full sail brewing Session IPA to those trying to expand into IPA's.

I tend to gravitate to Porters and Stouts with meals but Freetail Original Ale is my go to for lake afternoon brew. Another of my customers is New Braunfels Brewing and if you ever see their PKL-FKR pickle beer (fill in the blanks on the name) grab one. It's an explosion of flavor in your mouth and really light for summer sippin. Life is good with all the new micro's.

You lost me at pickle...YUK!!!

I'm a big fan of Busted Sandal beers.

They have more beers in their tap room than they distribute right now.

Seasons are changing. Time to start consuming light sour beers. For me anyway. Have not hit 90 degrees yet but it's coming.
This is a nice light beer that has a good sour taste.

I didn't get pictures of them but the Anderson Valley G&T Gose and their Blood Orange Gose are amazing. You should try them if you haven't already.

Man that brand puts out lots of good product. The seasonal brews are pretty spot on for the most part.

I am trying my hand at making a salt and lime spiked and sparkling. Will see. The salt, lime, and a little sugar is in a different container until fermentation is complete then I will incorporate it just prior to bottling. Will keep you posted but I should end up with a semi sparkling drink at @ 10%

Had Texas Helles for the first time last week. Loved Community's IPA and this did not disappoint. Nice lighter beer that definitely hits the Summer spot.

Must have been a lemon batch cause I actually really like it. Its specifically lacto fermented towards the end of brewing, so might be a different flavor than your used to.

I have had it a few times.
It does have a strong alcohol taste at 18%
However the hops are there.
