Over the past few days, I've had the following from the Answer:The Sybian wrote: ↑Thu Oct 01, 2020 9:37 amSame friend and a few others are obsessed with The Veil. Another friend dragged me to Other Half in Brooklyn when they did a collaboration with The Veil. I've heard The Answer is known for their fruited sours. I also like some of their beer names, like Jenny Cream Ale and You Put Your Wheat in There.govmentchedda wrote: ↑Thu Oct 01, 2020 8:37 amLooks like Veil ships to a few states. No NJ or FL though.govmentchedda wrote: ↑Thu Oct 01, 2020 8:34 amHardywood seems to be a bigger name around here as well. I haven't been to Veil or Hardywood. It's hard to tell from their site whether Veil has outdoor seating, and I'm not going to drink indoors right now.mister d wrote: ↑Thu Oct 01, 2020 8:28 amNot The Veil? That's their big Trillium-level name.rass wrote: ↑Thu Oct 01, 2020 7:49 amThis guy used to talk about going to Richmond for beer. I guess I know where he went now.
Kurisupiboi (pronounced Crispy Boy) - their Japanese style toasted rice lager. It's excellent. CCB does a similar one they call ikebana. It's a refreshing lager with a little more flavor (the toasted rice) than your usual lager
Haupiri - a New Zealand style pilsner (never heard of such a thing) which was also really good
Missing Floppies - a passionfruit raspberry sour (again, as mentioned before about the sweetness, it's not overwhelmingly sweet or sour, but just enough of each)
Hoptone wai-iti and Hoptone NZH-107, two variations of their Hoptone American IPA. Both really good The wai-iti is listed as an India Pale Lager, not IPA
The following Jooses
Quad Mother of...(Strawberry Guava Puffsicle)(Mango Swirlsicle: Pink Guava)(Spliff Stith: Mango Blueberry Marshmallow), that's three different flavors. All good.
Bourbon Barrel Aged Blanton's German Chocolate Cake Stout - looks like a mess of flavors that could be out of balance, but even at 12% ABV, the flavors and the booziness are perfect.
Salted Caramel Colonel Angus Imperial Stout - similar to the above in that it could easily be too much of any of those things, but it's just perfectly balanced.
