I know Yuengling, a Pottsville, PA brewer, has been expanding West and South. Back in the 1990's, you could only get it in PA, Delaware, part of NY, and maybe NJ. I know it hit DC around 1999. Last time we had one of these threads, it was in Ohio and Iowa. Any further expansion?
its so good, and yeah its became real big here in ohio, i know alot of people who drink that. we went to the outer banks in the summer, and thats what we primarily drank.
Yeungling is great to sit back and drink, but it is terrible as a party/keg beer. For one, it's expensive as hell. Also, it's very heavy, so it takes a while to process through your stomach. You actually get full drinking too much Yuengling. We had a Yuengling keg for a party at our house, and a bunch of people puked because it's not a chugging beer.
ok, if you know what pride i take in Wisconsin beer, you'll understand how hard this for me to say, but my favorite microbrewer ever is Bell's from Kalamazoo, MI. everything they make is amazing. i don't know if they distribute it outside of the midwest though.
my favorite is called Bell's Two Hearted Pale Ale
Bell's Oberon is also quite amazing. it's another orange ish beer. if you like Sunset Wheat, you'll like Bell's Oberon.
There is a place about 10-15 miles away from me in Alexandria (outside of DC) where you can make and bottle your own beer. You make an appointment, choose your brand, etc. They give you the ingredients, and you do all of the work. You design your label, and they make labels and bottles for you during the fermentation period. Once it's done, you bottle your own beer. I think you get 8 24-bottle cases out of it. It does cost about $350-$400, though.
dont have to touch fire to know that its hot....Alcohol is a drug, and the biggst drug in all of america. It destroys many peoples homes. I have seen parts of my family and friends fams destroyed because of alcoholics (and crack heads). Not something I want to start doing. Just me tho
It's called moderation and responsibility. Would you not drive a car because some people are idiots and get into car crashes?
