    Re: What beer are you drinking, Spring 14?

    11 people from work did a beer swap today. The idea is that everyone in the group brings in 12 beers and you get 1 from everyone in the group, including one of your own. It's a cool way to try a variety of beers without having to purchase a six pack on your own.

    Anyway, started with one of the beers from the swap, Southern Tier Hop Sun. Not really digging this one off the bat. Tastes like a more refined BudLight Lime. Might have to spend a little more time with this one.

    This is actually a great idea and I do this with a small group where I work,we change parameters every week as to a given style just to keep things on a level playing field.

    This does sound like a lot of fun. So long as your office mates have good taste in beer. :O

    I'm having my first Bell's Black Note Stout tonight and it is totally taking the edge off. This is every bit as good as the KBS I had at Founder's recently.

    Re: What beer are you drinking, Spring 14?

    We have a running list of beers that have been brought so no one brings the same thing twice. We also have a simple rule of no 'Lite' or 'Light' beers. It avoids a lot of issues, but it doesn't prevent all the crap from sneaking in.

    Try working with Mormons. One guy at work and I always share when we get a chance to grab some rare-to-Utah beers, and my boss will bring me something good but unremarkable once in a while. That's as far as that goes for me.

    Maybe a nice guy from the state to your right will mule you some beer. I hear they have some decent stuff over there.

    You know, that dude in the state next door just wants me to come to Denver and drink his fantastic bourbon... Never wants to ship anything.

    I get plenty decent beer... Could be better, but I'm happy.
