    How did the Miller Lite and Bud Light cases go over?

    Back in the old days when I actually went into an office where other people worked, I was the beer guy for the company fridge. That fridge serves up everything for Thursday's 4:30 happy hour. If there wasn't Miller Lite and Mich Ultra in the fridge, I would get strung up by my heels. I try to mix it up with the craft stuff, but there will always be "shit beer" in the beer fridge.

    They picked the right guy - You were good at what they asked you to do!


    Ive been buying Dragonfly quite a bit recently...the $8 sixpack price is hard to turn away for a pretty good beer...
    And CliffJumper from CountryBoy too because Kroger always has it well-stocked...

    Thanks. I had to let a lot of crap work it's way through the process. There was still something like 4 different kinds of cream ale in the fridge 3 months after I took it over. Luckily the wine drinkers aren't picky and they're easy to shop for. Bourbon was the challenge for awhile, but once I realized they'd drink a $6 bottle of wine, I was able to keep a handle of Four Roses in the cabinet.

    Dragonfly is one of my favorites too. Not a daily drinker, but it's always in the fridge. Meijer has a lot of Founders in the system, so All Day IPA or Centennial IPA has been what I've been drinking regularly for most of 2020. 15 packs for $15.

    I think I'm going to try to make it over to Great Fermentations and buy some grain & yeast, or at least some extract. I still have hops in the freezer. Time to fire the brewery back up.

    I have to admit that I’ve grown tired of the hazy and fruity IPAs. Maybe that will change with the weather. I’ve been going back to some old favorite malty IPAs - 2 Hearted a s SN Torpedo.

    Friday night was "Date Night". We took a walk to Bier North and got a growler of Wizard Tears for the pizza we were making. Double dry hopped american IPA. 88 IBUs and almost 7%. Really good IPA and I'll go get it again before it's off.

    This 9.5% to start the afternoon is pretty good...almost as sweet as a candy orange slice.

    Big Red currently has 25% off all Indiana products - beer and liquor. You can order online and pick up curbside.

    I've been going to Bier every Friday for the same thing. 2 growlers of PDG and a bullet of Wizard tears. I gotta break the chains of the same old habit this week. I think I'm going to head over to Deviate and just tell them brewer's choice on all the growlers.
