The Beer Nerd - what are you drinking / brewing thread

Hi all,

Where are the beer nerds? What are you drinking? Anything especially good lately? Any home brewers? Whatcha got going?

Some of the other forums I visit have similar threads and it's quite fun

Tonight I'm not drinking anything special... just been the deschutes IPA and some racer 5.

Have a couple pliny the elder's the fridge left over from a trip to russian river a couple weeks ago

Had a couple bottles of Two Captains by Nogne O the other day... something like 12 bottles were in the US and my uncle got 9 for the wedding I was at. It was pretty darn good.

Whole foods and Bevmo have the best beer selection around here. The benefit of living near a college town is most of the markets around have decent stock.

I miss living in the bay area... even more options!

On a somewhat related note: anyone ever grow hops? We've got four types going in the garden, but only two of the plants have started to do anything, and we're talking like 2" above the ground. We got them planted like two months ago now. Defective?

I'm not sure how your home town is - but I become friends with the owner of the local corner store by my old apartment. I'd have him get me a couple bottles of fun stuff when it showed up on the distribution list. Worth a shot!
