Because I can't watch the game and also this is important

Magic Hat Black as Night Winter Seasonal. I think it's good at winter time. Strong and ummm strong.

I was at the brewery a couple weeks ago...I didn't like the winter seasonal.

I really liked the IPA

Bud Light Golden Wheat.

It was better than I expected. It was good enough I may pay money for it at some point again. That said there's just something about it I don't trust, but I'm not sure what.

Was that their (H)IPA spring beer or something else? Cause that was a fantastic beer but i thought it was only out during spring. Unless you can still get it at the brewery now

agreed on Wachusett - just got turned on to Green Monster - yum.  Had my first harpoon winter tonight (draft) tastes better than last years for some reason...

I'm disagreeing on this one, couldn't make it through a bottle...and the gf couldn't either (she was the reason we bought it) not as good as a ufo, or even the new Sam wheat beer (not sure the name of it)

Yes. There are two very close very nice breweries in burlington if you make it that far north.

#1: http://vermontbrewery.com/

That one is really cozy. If you're going with some buddies and want to burn an hour or two in a real comfy pub like setting with EXTREMELY affordable pints, highly recommended. My boys and I usually follow a particular pattern when hitting a town in it's mug. Step 1: wake up, step 2: go to a place that serves good beer for affordable prices in oversized cups and sit there for a while, then stumble into the twilight fresh as a daisy. The cups were regular size, but I could spend days there.

This one is a little different. If you're bringing your lady I recommend this. Honestly from a beer snob standpoint they're probably the most innovative. And i don't mean they put raspberries in everything can call it a revolution. Just really good beer, but it's first and foremost an awesome restaurant. You don't want to bring hooligan friends (are there other kinds?) there, but if you're down for a great lunch and some interesting beer, this is the spot.

I was there this summer while up north on vacation and was sad to learn that Fat Angel was retired.  Single Chair Ale was pretty good though, a bit spicy.

I had some of that as well and really enjoyed it, I was pleasantly surprised. That being said, I'm a college student who typically drinks cheap light beers, so it doesn't take much to impress me. But I just really liked the taste and feel of Golden Wheat. TP for  you nonetheless.

The days of Keystone Light & PBR, lol. And if you wanted to be a "big spender," you might splurge the extra couple dollars for Coors Light. 
Haven't had beer in a long while, I, for the most part, drink hard alcohol, mostly will have a vodka tonic at night with dinner or sometimes before bed.  However, if I do drink a beer, I'll just stick with the traditional Coors Light or Bud heavy.

Anyone ever try those "energy drink beers?"  I tried  them once a few years ago, but never really got into them because of it's sugary taste. I think it was called Bud Extra.  Tasted like sweet tarts to me, but I was destroyed off of a 6 pack, due to the consumption of an upper (energy drink) and a downer (alcohol) at the same time...basically beers version of vodka and red bull.
