all of the sunoco gas stations in the buffalo area have all started selling growlers of craft beer...several different types on tap, decent pricing as well...thought it was at one location and seems every one i visit is now offering this service

Got a nice little beverage distribution center in town. I've known the owner for a while. He always has some good deals.
Last week I picked up a case of Boulder Brewing co.'s Mojo IPA, and some hazed and infused for 20 bucks each. Both
excellent brews.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.

Lots of great brews here in the Philly area: Yards, Victory, plenty of Belgian imports, we're even one of the few places in the country where you can buy Pliny The Elder.

Currently getting into the Oktoberfests. Magic Hat has a brew called Hex that's absolutely delicious and Spaten's seasonal offering is a perenial favorite. In a more general sense, I'm always up for Flying Dog's Raging Bitch, a Belgian style creation that's 9% ABV. The effect is fairly psychedelic. Also like the Small Craft Warning pils that's 7% ABV, which is certainly unusual for that variety. Very tasty and a bit bracing. Robust.

Actually this is just the tip of the iceberg for me. At least once a month I'll pull together a menu of different brews, put on some Stones and Hot Tuna, and just explore...

BTW I'm also into Wegman's. The one near us has a fine selection and they sell something called a growler, which is a 64 oz brown jug that they fill from the taps at their bar. Out of the keg is, hands down, the best way to experience beer, IMO.

wegmans is where it's at in general for whatever you need, but yeah their alcohol selection is great...i agree too, pint glass off a fresh keg is great


i tried the long trail harvest brew the other day, was pretty damn good
