Pliny The Elder from Russian River is great. Ballast Pointe Sculpin is really good. I'm also a big fan of Tricerahops from Ninkasi.

Anyone else use growlers? Stainless steel or glass? Where do you get them filled?

I have three growlers right now in my garage fridge. I fill them up at the three local breweries by me; Altamont Beer Works, Working Man Brewery, and Eight Bridges Brewery. All of them are here in Livermore, CA. The initial $23-25 sucks but it's like $10 to fill your growler after that for 4 pints so that's pretty sweet. My neighbor appreciates good beer and comes over to shoot pool and play darts so I usually kill a growler with him.

Are they glass or steel? I can buy a glass one for $12

Asheville Brewing Ninja Porter won the World Beer Cup Gold Medal.

Not sure how I feel about that, as there are two breweries within 100 yards or so of Asheville Brewing that have remarkably better Porters.

I mean, it's a good Porter and I love their food, but that was very surprising to me.

I've got 2 growlers one 64 and one 32 oz both glass.

I had to bump because I've discovered my new favorite beer: Grand Cru Rodenbach. It's a pure Belgium red sour ale. If you like sours, this one takes the cake and it's not too expensive. Awesome awesome awesome

For IPA's I really enjoy Hop Nosh, dogfish head 90 minute, and Stone. I also like foothills brewery Death by Hops.

I went through a Chimay phase which I really like but is pretty expensive to drink all the time.

Red Oak brewery in whitsett, nc makes some good beers as well. I like battlefield.

And if I'm in the mood to drink 12 beers, I'll go with miller lite.

A buddy of mine is a big fan of Pliny the Elder, but I haven't been able to find it in charlotte nc.

Since you're in California, have you ever seen Kilkenny Stout? It's made by Guinness but I can't find it anywhere.

    • Hey @E CaT PanTHer 2. For someone that kind of consistently makes strange remarks about black people, and also proudly voted for and supported Donald Trump, you sure don't seem to mind appropriating black culture when it serves you best.
    • I heard something the other day that made perfect sense to me. I was obviously aware of the Austin craze a few years back when interest began peaking and the real estate market began a recovery long before the rest of the country. Someone said, "Austin is outgrowing Austin." Remember Charlotte in 1990 and what happened over the next 20 years? Very comparable and many of the same issues associate with such rapid economic growth, development and population: real estate, infrastructure (traffic), employment competition, etc.
