    8 wired super conductor double ipa. It is tasty but I prefer the regular ipa from these kiwis.

    I have to agree and I've been quite stingy with the very little that I did manage to procure this year,great stuff!

    Re: What beer are you drinking, Spring 2013

    21st Amendments Lower De Boom American style barleywine in the small cans. At 92 IBU I was concerned it would be too hoppy for me as I prefer the English barleywine style that is a bit less hoppy and perhaps a bit sweeter or maltier than some may prefer. But the hops were not too overdone so it was OK although I still prefer a well made English barleywine. And at 11.5% ABV the small 8.4 oz can was a nice size for this beer if you have other plans for the evening.

    If not then you can always have two or three!

    I also picked up a few cans of their Hell or High Watermelon wheat beer. Haven't tried it yet as it might be better to save for when spring finally gets here on a full time basis.

    I've only seen/had this once, in Asheville, but thought it was decent. Finished with more bitterness than I expected.

    Distribution patterns are always interesting. 21st Amendment is in San Francisco, but they don't sell in the Chicago area. They do head even further east to GA and NC, though. I know there's a host of business reasons for how these decisions come to be made, but it's intriguing nonetheless.

    You mentioned the local area brews in the now closed thread. How would you rate the new Dayton area microbrewies? (I've not had any yet, but hope to have some when we visit for Easter.) The ones I know of: Yellow Springs, Toxic, Dayton Beer Co, and Fifth Street Brew Pub Co-op. We'll probably try a couple of these as well as The Century bourbon bar.

    Sam Adams lager draft, often overlooked by the hard core been fans but one of the best out there. There are many iterations of Sam Adams but I still like the regular Boston lager the best.

    I appreciate Sam Adams Boston Lager, too, but Utopias is the clear winner in terms of their best iteration.

    My favorite SA is the Lattitude 48 IPA, good balance of sweetness and hops.

    It could be argued that the current craft beer movement wouldn't be where it is without SA. For a long time Sam Adams Boston Lager was all there was nationally and it was the first beer I ever had that I really liked. Here is a pic of what started my love affair with beer:
