    SA's creation not featuring Galaxy hops is a crime against beer, the band, and SA himself.

    I thought Beautiful Disaster was really good. I was able to get someone to be my proxy for BD for this round so hopefully I’ll be getting mine by the end of November or so. I’m considering ordering more when they open up orders in Jan.

    We've been over this, but Lagunitas selling controlling share, or whatever the hell they did to be in 80% of liquor stores everywhere... still not mad. No inbev, and they are always good for $8-11 a sixer.

    Super Cluster is either $9 or 10, depending on the store I go to. Are you kidding me? It is delicious. The only downside for me is a big positive for most others. It's 8%. That's cool and all, but it's so crushable that for safety reasons I would prefer it was like 6%.

    I'd rather drink three 8% than four 6% but that's just me. Less is more!

    I'd usually rather have a variety of stuff.

    I enlisted my father and brother to help me kick a couple beers I didn't want to finish alone. One of my favorite shops is smart enough to have a clearance shelf.

    No one wanted your Champagne Brett Saison for $16, and no one wanted a high ABV Manhattan IPA for $20? No problem, I will buy both for $8.

    You untappd about that St Arnold with wild praise. Next year I might whine until you break to send me one. This year was weird - I really like pumpkin beers, but I had maybe 3-4 total this year.

    Also how is this year's Celebration? I'll buy it regardless, because ST is doing wonderful work with the fires, but am hit or miss with Celebration. One year it's delicious, the next tastes like drinking the water in the stand holding up a Christmas tree.

    I'd put Pumpkinator up against any pumpkin beer. Take on all challengers. It's just perfect and I look forward to it every year. But you might be whining for awhile cuz I only get it thru trades now and usually just one bottle. I used to buy as much as I could find in TX.

    I love pumpkin beers and this year was really weird. I couldn't find any!!! I didnt even see Pumking around. All I found was a 6er of Wasatch Black o Lantern. It's good, but nothing special. I did get to try Schlafly's Pumpkin on a layover and that impressed me.

    I really liked this year's Celebration. Clean and bold. More malt than other years to nicely balance. The color almost makes it look like a red IPA. I recommend picking some up

    I didn't see Black O Lantern anywhere, and that's maybe my favorite pumpkin beer. This year was weird for me also, in that I had like three pumpkin beers and I also love them.

    Good to hear about Celebration. The last few years seemed off, like too harsh or something.

    Hacienda Beer Co. has overtaken Raised Grain as my favorite WI brewery.

    They're way up in northern WI on the peninsula so I haven't been able to visit their tap room, but when their cans are available here I HAVE TO pick some up. Incredible DDH and NE IPAs and pales, delicious, rich stouts. They just blow me away every time.

    Theyre opening a taproom in Milwaukee in 2019 so I'll be able to visit that more often. I just hope the quality doesnt change

    @jukeboxgroove re: Pliney

    Like I mentioned, we've got approximately eight thousand very good and above IPAs here. We're so spoiled that the influx of Bell's, Founder's, and soon 21st Amendment makes me only think "That's cool".

    Pliney has lost a little luster for me. Only because it became a little more available. It gets dropped often enough where I am never crackhead itching for it, but also never seeing it available for more than two days in any shop. It's at the point where I am not blown away by drinking a bottle. I just know I am in for a very well-balanced and delicious time.

    Totally agree. There are so many new and exciting beers out there, its understandable for something that's been around forever to lose the aura it once had. I obvs cant get it much, but have had it enough to where I'm not desperately seeking it out back home like I used to. It's just a reliable, proven beer that still holds up wonderfully.

    I don't mean this to sound like a douchey brag, since "Oh man I almost got worn out on The Alchemist!" is, well - douchey-sounding. But being able to buy Heady in basically any store within a fifty foot radius in Stowe was really weird. I could have easily just drank sixteen Headys a day, with no issues buying it. Yeah, I would have died within a week. Oh well, choose your battles.

    Point being, depending on circumstance, your situation can render an amazing beer simply "Oh, cool!" status. I also am now realizing this is not the point we started with. But your post above kind of cements this. I see a lot of people in CO who would shank someone for some Spotted Cow, or especially for some of their fruit beers. But you don't even rank NG top 2 for WI.
