    It's the first day of American Craft Beer Week! Check to see if your local haunts are doing any special tappings and report back here. :)

    Yay for 3 day weekends.

    I've cracked a bottle of New Belgium 2014 La Folie which is a sour brown.

    Didn't quite expect the kind of sour where your jaw tightens up and pains you.

    The only sour I've ever had was Monk's Cafe Flemish Sour, which twas quite good, though not jaw constricting.

    Monks is awesome, Flanders red.

    La Folie is the same style, but turned to 11. You ALL should try and find it!

    Healer_Leona I bet they have some up there, since it was a collaboration with Great Lakes.

    Hey guys, what are some good American craft beers? I've only really seen Sierra Nevada pale around stores here, but I've heard you're doing good things up there. Can you recommend any?

    Ah, well I'm not sure who distributes down there. I'll see if I can do a little research.

    Currently drinking a 20th Anniversary Belgium Ale by Great Divide. It's brewed with grape juice, which makes it kind of taste like half white ale, half wine. Kind of like if beer and wine had a baby. Which makes it damn good.

    And, it makes me think alcohols should have sex more often, in the hopes that they reproduce awesome things.
