Speaking of Oktoberfest beers, this past Saturday I had the just released Atom Smasher at their Warrenville tap house. Very German style flavor, I loved it. It is aged a short time in large oak foudres. Bought a six-pack of it on the way out.

Without comparing Chicago to Hades, or Texas, I'm not a fan of Oktoberfest beers when it's 70° or more outside. Wink Must be the sweetness in those beers, but they are very tasty in the fall.

Grand Teton Bitch Creek Extra Special Brown- very tasty
Dogfish Head Palo Santo Marron- a 12% blitzkrieg in a bottle... Good, but dangerous

Fish Tail just opened a new brew pub near me. I plan to check it out very thoroughly this weekend. Wink

Half Acre makes some nice brews, but unfortunately it can only be found in the city. I need to pick up some of this stuff next time i go downtown.

The Binny's web site shows them carrying Half Acre, though it's possible they won't have them in all locations.

Really? Hadn't heard that. Where abouts? Have you been to the new Scuttlebutt location?

I have not been to Scuttlebutt's new location. The brews I had at the old one, I didn't care much for.
Fish Tale is in Everett, on Broadway and Hewitt, right across from Comcast Arena. Info here. I highly recommend their Organic IPA.
In the same general area is Balefire, which I do not recommmend, and Diamond Knot in Mukilteo, which I do.

More often than not, they seem to be out of Daisy Cutter at the Marcey Street location, but I work in Skokie, and they usually have it at the Dempster Street store (crazy, because it's one of the smaller ones).

I'm thinking about going to the Village Tap on Roscoe tonight. They are going to have 20-some local brews on tap, and word is there will be a keg of Double Daisy on tap.

You know, the other place I seem to find it is World Market, and I've picked it up at the Evanston and also Lincoln Park locations. It's worth a shot.

It's been a while since I had Chimay, and it's pretty pricey for the quality, but every once in a while I go for it. Had one last night. It brings me back to the Hand Pump Chimay I used to drink at Toranado in San Francisco.

Theier hand pumped Anchor Steam was one of the best brews ever!

Two friends came over (with pizza Cool) to watch the TCU vs. Baylor game. They are Baylor alum.

They brought over Kosta Browne and SQN. ( I told you, they are Baylor boys Wink)

Tasted both, then decided to drink a number of Three Philosophers, an excellent beer.

Did the same thing last night - a buddy of mine is Baylor TE Jordan Najvar's uncle and this was his first game after transferring off a redshift year at Stanford. First game, first catch, first TD and a very proud Uncle.

I had a couple Real Ale Ambers and he was all over some Bitberger.
