        Totally Naked is a pricey version of Budweiser.  But so many other choices, why worry.

          Yep.  I think you need extra quantities of Belgian Red.  I have dreams about that stuff.  Uff Da is what we always seem to drink the most of when we get together with my 'rents and siblings.

                Sampled one of these last night at a tasting. Sadly the consensus was that it tasted like cough medicine. Fortunately we followed it with a cran-bic which was pretty good.

                  Cranbic is great.  Nice and tart.  Yeah, the cherry stout has gotten mixed reviews.  I made one about a decade ago, and it was super yum, so I want to try NG's version.


                  Needs more cowbell!

                    I'm so bummed that my folks couldn't find Cranbic when we got together at Thanksgiving.  But I am even more bummed that NG doesn't distribute out-of-state.

                      A friend of mine is visiting NG next week. People were waiting in line to give him their orders.

                        We'll need a full report.

                          New Glarus has some good stuff.  Capital also has some decent beers.  I like a few of our Minnesota beers better than both, but NG is extremely creative with some of their brews.

                           

                          What part of  'sconnie will you be in?  We have a family cabin in Cumberland, and I will be having a few, and running some hills, this weekend.
