    Went to founders about 6 weeks ago. Was a big letdown..always wanted to go there. The blushing monk was good though. Already had a fridge full of that so it was no surprise to me.

    Next big one I plan on hitting is Shorts. They have a great catalog of products.

    Never seen that one. We must be from different regions.

    I actually (sadly?) Know beers much better than I know smoking lol. I'll chat beer anytime with folks!

    Edit: I see that's from Lawson's which makes it a North Eastern beer..is it a NEIPA? As in brewed w citra hops and very "juicy"? Or is it more of a standard IPA Brew?

    This is what I'm enjoying atm.

    It is called Sip of Sunshine and it is made by Lawson’s Finest Liquids which is a Vermont brewery. It’s billed as an IPA BUT AT 7.2% I would say it’s a double IPA. A hop-forward IPA. Piney, bitter hops come out the gate and cut through more of that lightly malty, citrusy sweetness. Not too bitter, not too hoppy, not too sweet. Just a perfect balance.

    That Larry’s looks interesting, if I get a chance I’d would love to give it a try

    Well thanks for the info on that sip of sunshine :-) sounds like a more traditional IPA. Since New England styles have been sweeping the country, I see now more and more traditionals being labeled as "West Coast" style IPA's.

    The Larry's latest is named after Bell's brewing's Larry Bell. There's a different one every year. This year is a mango passion fruit session/sour sort of ale. It's very good and reasonably priced at 7 bucks for a 4pk 16z box. Last year was a belgium style I didn't care for much.

    For a tiny state we have more micro-breweries per capita then anywhere else in the US. My favorite micro-brew is Switchback Ale. Although my main beer is PBR and Narragansett.
