    I tried the Fathom recently that you posted about. I'll go in more depth about it later, but the Aloha is better than fathom in my opinion.

      I never saw until this year and I'm west coast. Maybe they distributed to the east coast before the northwest? We're pretty saturated up here.

      Ballast point longfin lager

      Nothing real elaborate here. This is a fine effort but comes up short compared to the traditional German helles beers . Still it’s decent and has the taste and feel of a paulaner . Just feels like something is missing. Average beer is a C

      Prairie Bomb- vanilla

      Similar to the ten fidy from a previous review . Heavy chocolate flavor mixed with a medium coffee roast . Ironically enough the vanilla is hardly present . The 13 % is well hidden . Which sets it apart from other imperial stout brews . I’ll definitely be on the lookout for this one . Highly recommend, solid A.

        Love Prarie Bomb! My brother lives in SanAntonio and gets some to me every so often. I currently have two that I've had for a couple of years in the cellar. I'll have to drag one out now that you've got me salivating after it.

          If you can ever get your hands on the Christmas bomb then do it. They’re about $9 a bomber , but worth every penny.

              Having a Lord Hobo “Boomsauce” at the bar. Granted I’m a few deep on vaca, but this is a solid effort. Light pine, nice clean finish. Good beer.

              I love anything from Prairie Artisan Ales. Would go to their brew house where you could get the Bomb and everything else on tap. Definitely the best super high point beer I've had.

                I am not a beer snob, but my two favorites are Blue Moon and Sam Adams Summer Ale. I don't know if it is wheat, IPA, etc. Its just beer.

                  Brought them with me, but then left them at the bar. Must have put them down while adjusting my suspenders in between sips.

                    The summer ale is an American wheat ale. But it also has lemon zest in it. So I hope you have accepted the fact that you are pussy hipster.

                      Oh no offense taken!! And you are correct, I have not read the entire thread. Concrete Helmet did crack me up with his claim that Bud Light was beer. I will drink it in a pinch though.

                      When beer snobs start talking beer, I get totally lost in all the terminology. IPA, Wheat beer, yada yada. I know nothing about ANY of that and what it means. I try a new beer (to me) and if it tastes good, I will drink it. That is the limit to my beer knowledge.
