Cider....the girls like it. You rarely see commercials for it. You might see one on a menu.

Good to know, thanks for the feedback. Not sure if this is available in the states but is an Aussie beer I enjoyed recently with a short review.

Nine Tales

Staking its claim as the original craft beer, this full-bodied, malty beer with a toffee-caramel sweetness and nutty finish balanced against citrus hop notes is still a firm favourite. This is the ale many claim has spoilt them for taste and made other beers insipid in comparison. Another claim to fame is the unique inclusion of original 125 year old, top fermenting ale yeast used in the production.The bad boy of Australian brewing, James Squire’s life story is one that proves that fortune favours the rouge. And the brand relishes the rouge. So for all you beer drinking rouges out there, this could be your brew.

The review is a bit over the top but I went back for more.

Trillium is so expensive I begrudgingly and happily drink one every time I go to my brother's because it's so good.

I'm not a big IPA fan (like most people seem to be), but Cigar City came out with a White Oak version of their Jai Alai IPA and it's really tasty.  If you like IPA's and are familiar with Jai Alai then I highly recommend their White Oak one.

Cigar City just finally started distribution in Illinois back in February.  Jai Alai is the real deal.  Had it a few times down in FL so was pumped when I heard it was coming to Chicago.  Think Florida is pretty weak when it comes to the brewery scene but Cigar City is the real deal.  They've done some collaboration beers over the years that I've been able to get my hands on & they always seem to do a good job.

Good to hear  you've made it to FL to try some beer.  TP!  Hopefully you get the white oak version there.  I'm a fan of their Florida Cracker beer too, if you like witbier's like I do.

I was in the Keys for a few days with my folks and was also impressed by the beers from Islamorada  Beer Company.  No idea what their distribution looks like but they had some good stuff. Especially the Channel Marker IPA.

Might want to be on the lookout for this new beer hitting the market if you're in the San Francisco area.

(On a related note, the "Haze Craze" is certainly starting to jump the shark.  There are some really bad ones hitting the market right now trying to capitalize).

Nimble Giant DIPA from Troegs. I love Troegs' Nugget Nectar. I did not love Nimble Giant. 9.4% and you feel it in the morning man. Boy do you feel it.
