Scottish and Hop Man, both on tap at the tiny Dry City Brew Works in Wheaton, IL last night. Both were quite good, and it was the first time in several visits that I've really enjoyed the beers.

Indeed. One and the same. I will seek out and try more of their brews based on this one.
We've stayed there but I don't remember them making beer. Everything there is top notch, so I'd expect their beer to be excellent.

Most everything I've had from them so far has been very good.
Brasserie Dunham, Leo's Early Breakfast IPA

I had it with elevenses instead of breakfast. A hint of Earl Grey, I like it.
2013 Dark Lord
Prairie Bomb!
2016 Dark Lord
Surly Darkness

Ranked top to bottom there. The 2013 Dark Lord was outstanding with a bit of age on it, especially in contrast to the 2016 which showed more alcohol and untamed sweetness.
As to Blackberry Farms beer, it is brewed off site in nearby Maryville. Thus, it is not owned by the resort owners. It is also distributed in other areas besides the BF resort.

Although not my favorite styles of beer, it is a good quality product.

I may have a poor palate, but this is the only Lindemans beer that is drinkable. I thought it was more than a decent lambic and a good representative of the style.

This surely knocks "ass served with a side of ass" back a few notches in the history of WS forum tasting descriptors.

I don't even want to think about how you might know what that tastes like.

2 x Revolution Oktoberfest. Nice and malty. The 6-pack of Hofbrau Haus Oktoberfest I have is the last of my stash of this seasonal. While I love the style, I'm ready to move on. Wink
Het Anker - Gouden Carolus: Cuvée van de Keizer Rood. Outstanding.

Schneider - Marin's Rendezvous. Very good.

Great choice. This is the benchmark IPA against which I measure all others.
