Beer Chat -- 3/6/15

Eno Sarris, March 06, 2015

In Arizona for Spring Training. Should try to get to a few local spots before I leave, and I brought Almanac and Anchorage sours, plus a couple Drake's Hopocolypse... but it was fun to go to the local Bevmo and see what they had. I ended up with a full shopping cart -- had to quench the thirst of 21 men.

Not bad for a group of beers without a whale in sight, eh? Everyone's got something they like, and there's still a ton of beer in the fridge. All for the cost of about one trip to the bar for this big group.  You see one you just can't stand? 

The Week in BeerGraphs

Do the big beer festivals do a good job of picking the right beers, or are they the oscars?
