Finally found this, after searching several weeks, at the bodega at the bottom of my street. Go figure.

Perfect for nursing that Sunday morning hangover with some music & a newspaper. :gregoir:

Still the king of pumpkin beers. Next best I would say is the Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin.

I liked the imperial pumpkin. It was sweet - which made a nice dessert.

We have the dogfish in our fridge. Busting into it this weekend. Pretty excited!

Goose Island has a nice harvest ale.

I feel like I'm missing out on something. I love the taste of all spice and nutmeg in this though - yet was left with a meh feeling. Guess I'll have to drink more today. If the first one don't grab ya then the second one will?

Never had Switchback.

And you're not lame at all. The Tumbler is a good brew!

i loooooove me some brown ales! :drool:

pumpkin ales? not so much :undecided:

going to look for the tumbler brown, but i havent had good luck with the sierra special offerings :dunno:

my favorite brown is sam smith nut brown
i dont like a lot of spices or too much smokiness in my brown ales
good flavor and nicely balanced is all i ask

anyone had the moat mountain brown
its called boneshaker
its pretty damn yummy

i love their saying "everyone loves big cans!"

Haven't a clue. Never saw Shed beers in anything but growlers and kegs when they were open. All I know is I can't drink a sip of Mountain Ale ever again. When I was an employee there in the 90s, you could buy two Growlers per shift for only $2 a piece. Thing was, you got a $1 deposit back when you returned the Growler. Let's just say I overindulged slightly. :lol:

Just tried this from my local brewery.

Posted Image

It's sort of a Black IPA.
Nyx


Posted Image
The Greek goddess of night, born from chaos, Nyx is beautiful, seductive, and always too fleeting. With a deep chocolate character and bitter hops, this beer likens itself to the India Black Ales of England’s Imperialist Era. American hops drive the flavor and weave in and out of the pitch black fabric of this strong ale. Drink and be merry, because night never lasts long enough!

He's already being regarded as the best brewer in the US. Hope he keeps it small(local). I get the sense he will.

It's really good. It's a limited release that is a variation of their Brown Shugga' Ale. Definately worth seeking out.

Long Trail just came out with a small batch Brown Bag series IPA that is yummy.

 

Just had it at the brewery no bottles to be had reminds me allot of lagunitas ipa.

 

It has a straw color body with a nice hoppy taste with notes of apricot, grapefruit and citrus.

 

Piney hops but not overwhelming with a lemony dry finish.

Yes!!!!

 

The Shed has now become The Crop  Bistro & Brewery. The food is SOOOO good - staff is SOOOO nice too!!!!  I can't say I have had their homemade brew yet because just 2 weeks ago, the new owners got their new brewing facilities and made their first batch of beer!

 

The Buds are back there on February 20 at 9:00pm.  Here is the web site to check it out -  Crop Bistro & Brewery  Stowe, VT.

 

The Crop has become a Kind Bud favorite!!!!
