I guess Im the only one that takes Miller High Life quality beers to fests anymore?


I prefer a good craft beer while sitting around the fire when having like 4-5.

We have a beer cooler tonnage limit when we travel... and also being broke, we like to get brews we both like.

Blue Point just came out with cans!! :bouncey:


Hmmmm... and Blue Point Toasted Lager is one of our favorites.

We're very limited attending festivals this year, but help researching great beer in cans is most appreciated

Natural Ice! 30 packs are $19ish...I'm a cheap fuc......and nobody begs them from me.

Other than that some nice rum for strong drinks.

Last year I brought some Harpoon IPA to Vibes and ended up giving them away.....tasted like ass in a can.

I like them all a lot, except the Pork Slap! I just can't drink it. It's usually all that's left in my cooler at the end of a festival if I bring the Butternuts sampler. :lol:

You'll find plenty of cooler space for some extra pork slaps down by space camp :)

I usually camp in Space Camp with Butch and Lisa. I won't be at StrangeCreek, but I'll keep it mind if I bring the Butternut sampler to Vibes and they're taking up space in my car. :lol:

The local place by me has 5 or 6 Sixpoint beers in cans these days. go try Resin... that shit is soo good... and you'll get drunk as hell on a 4 pack.

I also second the 21st amendment. good stuff from them.

Just cleared the shelf of all the Sierra Nevada cans @ the local Market Basket today. Should be good for this weekend. I did the Butternut's variety last weekend. The pale ale & ipa are all gone, still some stout's left & way too many of the green one's. There always seems to be that one beer in a variety you don't care for..Which just means they get drunk last.

I put back an 18 pack of that stuff in one night during my first semester Freshmen year in college, before I had an unruly tolerance for domestic schwill. Needless to say, that was the last time I ever touched Red Dog :lol:

I bought a 12 of regular Sierra to share this weekend too.

Mmmmm almost bought some of the Brooklyn IPA in cans, but the cart was pretty full. I'll trade ya for one!

I picked up
Sierra Nevada: Pale Ale &amp; Torpedo
Oscar Blues: Dale's Pale Ale &amp; Deviant Dale's
SixPoint: Righteous &amp; Crisp &amp; Apollo &amp; Bengali Tiger

(Had to say no to a couple other options of Oscar Blues too)

Almost got the SixPoint Resin! Love it!

But then thought maybe not what I want on a hot summer day. I was also eyeing the Oscar Blues Ten Fidy.

Well, have to run an errand or two in the morning, so I can always go back and pick up a couple more.

Six Point Resin is one of the best tasting beers Ive ever had. Yeah lol I prolly won't crack one of those until late night. Prolly not the most refreshing beer you can get. With a 9.1% ABV I think it will be a good 7am knock-out beer though :zzz: . Down for tradeskies too!

I doubt I'll drink more than 8 beers the whole weekend :loopeye: plenty to share!
