My first ever disappointment with Sierra Nevada beers. Bought a 1/2 case of four different IPA's. The only one that was normally sold was Torpedo Double IPA which is a great beer. The others only OK.

Nooner IPA - session style IPA - OK but Founders All Day IPA is much better

Snow Wit IPA - white IPA - the best of the new three and true to style

Blindfold Black IPA - black IPA - not true to style, tasted like a stout

...glad to know it wasn't just me!

If you haven't had one and you get the chance - the Founders All Day IPA is quite good for a beer that has - I think - 4.5% abv.

Damn...been a month since anyone's posted anything about beer!

If anyone is looking for a decent session IPA - White Birch Brewing Hop Session is pretty good. They're in Hooksett and you can probably get throughout the state. Their Belgian Pale Ale is good too.

Actually on Saturday I'm headed to the Granite State Brewers Association Beer Fest in Manchester (via a party bus!). 28 breweries - only NH! Looking forward to sampling some beers that I haven't had before - really looking forward to Schillings from Littleton since they've been mentioned here before.

And last but not least - someone picked me up some Narragansett Del's Summer Shandy from RI! Gonna have one after tonight's mountain bike ride!

Schillings is really good Mark. I was up in Littleton a couple of weeks ago and ate (and drank) at the restaurant that is at the brewery. They have a lot of great beers.

Thanks for the confirmation on Schillings Steve. And that they've got good food. I was up at Kingdom Trails today and did a killer MTB ride and was planning on stopping on the way back. Rode further than I planned, was later than expected and needed to get home.

So the first stop at the beer fest will be Schillings!

Damn good thing I was on a party bus - and could walk home from the pick up/drop off location. NH has some really good breweries.

With that Steve - Schillings was one of the standouts. They had a great blonde ale and a hefe if I remember! Definitely need to get to the brewery.

Others that stood out - Stoneface Brewing (best IPA there), Throw Back Brewing, 603 Brewing and Canterbury Ales. 

The only recommendation I'd give the organizers for next year is to actually have a listing of all the breweries and their beers so you can keep track!

Great day out - only thing better would have been a day of climbing followed by the beer festival!

That's why you are supposed to buy a six pack of each beer you sample. So after climbing you can share them with your friends.

I've always got beer in the truck after climbing, mountain biking or whatever the outdoor activity is! Other tha 603 Brewing which cans and bottles I'm not sure where or how the others distribute.

I know Throw Back is a nano brewery however have seen their beer at my local place that serves up good craft beer. Gonna research the others.

If you're driving up/down 93 exit 4 give me a heads up Steve and I'll buy you a pint!

You could walk home from the bus ? Thats too bad  ;D

The cooler NEVER leaves my vehicle,,never.  for weddings, i add a second 'cause most have shitty beer.

When we were cleaning Clean Sweep, we carried a FULL cooler from the road to cliff edge...Alain Comeau "sure you have enough ?"  There's more in the car. !  It was barely enough for the day and we had 2 more days cleaning..

We left a smaller cooler on top while doing the route..incentive
