What are some good beers people have been drinking lately? I've been drinking high life for the most part.

Been drinking Wake Up Dead Nitro and Ten Fidy at home since winter set in.

Also went to the Lagunitas tap room this weekend and had a flight of NightTime, Maximus, Lagunitas Sucks and Imperial Stout. Those were good.

I drink tons of Lagunitas Sucks.  

It's definitely a weekly purchase.

The other stuff I drink is mostly not available in Chicago, so I won't bore you.
If I lived there I'd probably just drink Zombie Dust until I was homeless.

My most recent purchases have included Ten Fidy and the always good Left Hand Milk Stout Nitro.  Also I've always liked New Holland's The Poet but I don't know if it's ever been mentioned here.

Finally, thanks to Pen for pointing out that he's such a Big Wheel down at the Beer Drinking Factory that he likes stuff you guys have probably never heard of.

It's just not available in Chicago, IDITO.

Also, I made it quite clear that you have a beer that I would drink and spend myself homeless for.

But fine, I have been drinking lots of:
Ballast Point Sculpin
Ballast Point Victory at Sea
Lagunitas Sucks
Firestone Velvet Merlin
Firestone Union Jack
Sierra Nevada Celebration
Duchesse De Bourgogne


Those the most.  You may be able to get Firestone there. Quite likely, actually.
Definitely Celebration. 
Probably Duchesse.

I'm sure there are others, but those are the ones that are top of mind.


You can definitely get Firestone's offerings in Chicago - Velvet Merlin is now back in season and is terrific.

In conducting a quick exercise for Morph, I see that some of the Binny's in Chicago are carrying Sculpin. 

It's pretty much the best IPA in the world, so you should all get it ASAP. 

I pay $13.99 for a 6-pack of it here, so I would expect similar pricing. 

Per Binny's website, they currently have it in:
Lincoln Park
South Loop
Des Plaines
Elmwood Park
Lake Zurich

I can't believe I even know these people. I'm ashamed of my internet life.

None in Highland Park? Clearly this is antisemitism.

The Tribune carried this nugget today in an article about Kevin Youklis being hired for some made-up job by the Cubs,
"Youklis and his brother Scott recently bought a brew pub in the trendy town of Los Gatos, Calif., that they plan to reopen this summer."

Los Gatos?  Trendy?  A brew pub?  Los Gatos was lacking a place to go and drink overpriced beer?  Who knew?
 Los Gatos is like a suburb of Palo Alto and San Jose, situated on Highway 101 between those two cities.  I guess that Youklis is counting on a loyal Red Sox constituency among the Stanfurdites on the Peninsula.

Close enough compared to Chicago. Hey guys, have I invited you to my hip new gastropub in trendy Martinez yet?
