    Hello from the North Country of Minnesota

    I am new to the forum from Northern Minnesota. I will use the handle Grain Belt after the iconic midwestern beer. I have enjoyed this forum for a while and feel I can contribute from time to time. I really enjoy most bourbons and am getting into cocktails and cooking with bourbon in addition. My sweet spot for bourbons is probably ones that are a good value to me based on exceptional taste to my palate but ones that do not break the bank. I enjoy Old Charter 8 and 10, Jim Beam Black, Evan Williams Black, 1783, and single barrel, Elijah Craig 12, and many others. I also am getting into some ryes. I have splurged a few times and have had Pappy variations and Stagg/Handy/Sazerac 18. All in all I feel I am entering the phase of being an "enthusiast." Hope to get to know a few of you.

    Welcome to SB from a former northern Minnesotan now living in Chicago. There's a lot to learn here so enjoy. Whereabouts in the northern part of the state are you? Great handle btw. I still have a soft spot for Grain Belt and try to pick some up when I visit my family up there.

    Welcome Grain Belt! I spent four of the best years of my life in the great state of Minnesota, with a few of the best days spent portaging and canoeing in the Boundary Waters. Look forward to your contributions!

    Welcome GB. My inlaws have a cabin on Leach Lake, so I'm familiar with the area you call home. It is a great place.

    This is a great place to learn more about the great american drink we call bourbon. Most of the guys on this forum have already forgotten more than I know.

    I look forward to your contributions
