not usually a big fan of lagunitas, but this is kind of good.

I am a big fan of lagunitas, but I really think that one sucks.

 

Lucky 13 is my favorite.

Big fan of ciders. I'm not so sure I'd consider Crispin a step up from Angry Orchard though.

 

I'd believe it. My experience with cider is super limited. Some UK oontzers put me on at one point, but I haven't drank much in the States. I will keep an eye out for those specialty bottles; Strawman sounds like something I'd be into.

i got a 4 pack of brew dog ipa and the red ale. I liked the ipa better

but for fuck sakes what a terrible package design. a friggin piece of cardboard stapled at top is going to keep the beer from falling out?

the liquor store owner said he has a lot of problems in the summer when its humid in the fridge

Crispin should be easy to find, and it's a step up from Angry Orchard, for sure.

 

I do not have a very good palette for ciders -- they taste kinda similar to me. I prefer dry ones to sweet ones, though.

 

There are some great french ciders that sit on the dry side. Some use champagne yeast and are fucking wonderful. A little funky like a nice farmhouse ale, but crisp and round due to the fruit.

 

I also started bartending at Trappist Provisions in Oakland. So that's cool.

I like any brewery that has good branding. Metal themes are always a +

So far I like 3 floyds designs the best.

On the cider topic, I'm a big fan of the Basque ciders - Isastegi and Sarasola. real funky, some drink like wild ales.

 

Jacks Original Hard Cider (made in PA) is a decent dry cider.

 

The Anthem line of ciders is alright, Anthem Hops (made with Washington State hops and apples) is unique, I also like their Cherry cider.

 

Craft cider is definitely happening, a lot of local producers in the mid-Atlantic are going for it.

I live in a area with a large basque population. I have never tried their cider.

 

Will try and report back when I get a chance.

I have not been drinking much at all lately and I've gotta say 2 6.8% beers and dayquil are pretty serious.
