HA! EVERYONE who goes to college in VT, myself included, drinks themselves silly on Long Trail(usually Blackbeary Wheat) though I preferred just their Ale. By the time I reached the real world, I'd had so much damn LT that I almost have no interest in it. I used to work at a resort that had their own LT series, "Tram Ale", that was pretty good, but kinda light for my liking. Long Trail is, however, a good company AND they make trail-friendly cans. However, my local grocer had a huge box of various Shock Top tall boys for $0.75 a pop so I'm well stocked from a non-local company at the moment.

Damn that is a great price for tall boys! And yeah I can imagine getting sick of something but man I sure love the Long Trail Ale as well. It's super good

Yeah, it's good quality stuff and their season brews are usually terrific, and it's always a great standby. Plus, you can tour their brewery and get the tour, two pints of your choice, and a LT pint glass for like $10.

I can give you a list of a million great places to tour if you make your way up here. Hard cider too. I don't often drink it, but occasionally I'll grab one and there are some awesome brands up here(Citizen Cider is by far the best).

I won't lie, I do love a hard cider, but I have to be in the mood for it. It helps that it's fall, that's for sure! I've even thought of making my own hard cider if I managed to have the time

It's nice being in the northwest. We've a ton of breweries, and the local exchange here gets slightly-expried-awesome-beer at crazy prices. ($10/case). You see names like Green Flash, Boulevard, etc... come through and and it's almost crazy to drink anything else. At the least, it cut the low end beers out of our beer budget.

Heady Topper is probably one of my all time favorites. I envy your prices, Vermont is a great place, but our taxes are super high. 6% sales with additional 1% in some communities, $2.60-something tax on cigarettes(it goes up regularly), 10% tax on liquor again with an extra 1% in some places. However, our tax-free neighbor New Hampshire's just over an hour away.

Color me jealous. Good beer doesn't "expire" as quickly as most believe. Thank you FDA for "best buy" dates and the people who subsequently believe in them.

Heck, I have one bottle of Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout from 5 years ago that is perfectly good. I drank the 4 year old version of it last winter and it was incredible.

Yeah, I went to Long Island with a friend and his girlfriend earlier in the year almost solely so she could recover her collection of premium beers a friend had been keeping for her at his shop for something like six years that she cached there before she left for the north. They had been sitting, granted in a well contained room at a liquor store, but we cracked open a few on the beach that night and they were still wonderful. I wish I remember some of the bottles we cracked open, I have to go back to the competing resort were she has my job so that I can ask what she had then and what she has left.

Just bought a case of Magic Hat Halloween variety bottles. Had to get it because it says 'Night of the Living Dead' in huge print on the case. It's mostly stuff that's easy to find in six-packs like No.9, Jinx, Hi No.9 IPA, and, winning best name, Wilhelm Scream Pumpkin Ale.

I'm drinking 'Rebel Red' Irish red ale, it's a traditional red ale (think Smithwicks) that's brewed in Cork. Good stuff.

I'm not much of a beer drinker. I'm more of a vodka guy and sometimes a whiskey but when I'm in the mood, I go for some sweet or flavored beer. Some hard cider is good too.

Currently have these in my rotation at home.

Floris Honey for me and Floris Apple for the Mrs. Getting the Floris chocolate next time.
Wells Banana Bread beer if I want something darker/stronger.

It's really velvety, I have two bottles chilling in my fridge but alas I broke my leg last Thursday so alcohol is temporarily out :|
They'll be well chilled by the time I'm able to drink them.

Well damn, don't know how I didn't see this thread before! Just got into the craft beer scene last year, really loving it. There's not much available out here, but when I go home to Seattle on vacation I tend to splurge just a bit.

Though there is a brewfest on Friday that I'm attending, there's gonna be a good 14+ breweries in attendance, so I'm looking forward to it!
