Jim, how goes?  You half way done now?

Also,  I'm trying a Full Sail IPA waiting for Bruins game.   Pretty good, it's from Hood River Oregon.

Try some Opa Opa from Chicoppee, MA
Just had one (Opa-Opa Red Rock) with dinner.  OK, not great, sorry John.  Of the 'local' beers, I like BBC Original and a couple of different brews from Long Trail.

Sammichlaus, 14.7ABH.

Find it, enjoy it.

I acquired it from a small shop in Bath, and a distributor in Topsham. Dunno where you'd find it in NH, but find it and enjoy it.

I still haven't been able to buy a pack of Ipswich Ale IPA (strange that I am having this much trouble) so I tried Magic Hat Blind Faith tonight instead.  Pretty good but I still like Long Trail better.

Ipswich Ale IPA still takes the cake but its hard to find outside of MA.
I just enjoyed one thoroughly after a hot and sweaty day outdoors, while watching the Sox squeeze out a win in the first game of a double-header.  It is good ... the only downside for me is it is a touch too bitter for my taste.  But I can see why others might really like it.  I will be buying it again!  Thanks for the tip!

" A touch to bitter"  I have heard that before    ;)

I just decided that I drink exactly enough beer. After years of research, all the beer is gone and I get more.

My local beer store just started carrying Dale's Pale Ale in 6-pack cans. Gotta say that is the best canned beer I have had yet!

6 years ago there were 16 craft beers in cans selling about $500k. now there are over 50 doing (something like) $2.5mil and that is growing fast.

So, how are these canneries and breweries eliminating the 'metallic' taste often found in beers in cans? Teflon coated cans?
