Beer Chat -- 6/19/15

Eno Sarris, June 19, 2015

So I got a bottle of Hill Farmstead Arthur for $39.99 in San Jose yesterday. I'm excited.

I'm also terrified. There's no way I should have gotten that beer. They don't distribute to California. And their twitter account is asking... where did you get this. 

I suppose for some of you this is binary? It's illegal, you should say something. 

My compass doesn't always line that up that way, it's funny. 

For some it was profiteering. For me, it was a price I was willing to pay, once. Every beer has its price.

So then it comes down to my wish to have access to great beers at this store (the rest of the lineup was pretty amazing too) versus the wish of the brewery to have control over their distribution, and freshness, and price, to some extent. 

So I suppose for some of you this is binary. Maybe I value my enjoyment too highly. I'm in anguish.

The Week in BeerGraphs

Drink very good IPAs with Shirt.

Bierkraft closed and at least I was perplexed.

Minnesota is SOLID and other states by the statistics. 

Sounds like a nice hike. And a good beer.
