I drank the Dirty Pete shortly after Father's Day. It was OK, but not something I would seek out and pay the big bucks.

I was a kid swiping one from the garage refrigerator then! NW Ohio at that time. I’ll have to see what I can find on that.

Well that sucks, it sounded good. I think I tried the NE IPA in your third picture, I thought it was pretty good.

Bear... I wish I could get Yuengling here. Rumor has it I might be able to buy then end of the year but I load up the trunk everytime we head east to visit the wife's family. Once I get back everyone wants to come over and enjoy some. Makes for a great time to smoke something. I also love some Genny beers.
Ha, I had heard of Yuengling beer, but never saw any here in the PNW. For years, I thought it was a Chinese beer like Tsingtao.

I am blessed here with more small breweries than I can shake a stick at. Other than Red Hook or Elysian who have wide distribution, you've probably never heard of most of them.
Some are in my neighborhood, probably 20 more just a few minutes drive away. Some can or bottle (especially during the COVID lockdown), but for many I can just go fill a growler or two. Citra hopped beer and NE IPAs are also very big during the summer here.

I departed the PNW 20 years ago and the large amount of local area and regional breweries was astounding. Granted some of them were pretty bad.
PNW innovated the growler.

I'm of a mind that unless it's being run by an experienced brewer (and a lot of them are amateur startups), there is about a 2 year learning curve for nano breweries. In other words, if they survive for 2 years, odds are that what they put out after that point will be decent and drinkable.

This is one of my favorite local places. Everything you see in the video is literally done in his garage.

I don’t drink it, but what about those Budweiser frogs with Luey and Frank the lizards? That was pretty good stuff.

Rainier had some good ones in their day.

Rain ... Nier... Beer... Classic

My favorite is still a Henry's commercial.
The saloon scene where the old cowboy predicts in a hundred years "only little girls will ride horses".
Henry's Ale on draft was my favorite.
